“Splendour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

We stayed during the quiet time just before Christmas and had a superb stay with the seaview in a marvelous room. Nothing oversized but very elegant and comfortable. All the amenities are there and the hotel is based on and displays grand splendour. It is lovely. If you can get a nice price do not hesitate. The location is excellent, Trieste is a city worth visiting, the expert staff will have good recommendations for dinners and outings. Breakfast is very good. A hint of arrogance and being spoiled by excessive tips is noticeable with the porters/bellboys.

We went to Trieste in the middle of a Italy-Croatia trip, decided to stay during 2 nights to relax and recover energy before starting the second part: Croatia! (There are buses to several cities in Croatia). We couldn't have made a better choice!!!!the bed was fantastic, the room was very quiet, quiet and the shower was excellent!! The hotel is located in front of the pier and you can have a very beautiful view. The breakfast is served at a big room at the lobby with fruits, cereals, juices, breads etc. well, very good choice!!!

We spent a wonderful three days at the Savoia with our 7 yr old boy and small dog. The staf. Was terrific to us, my son and the dog. Great food, nice breakfast buffet. Very, very clean and really nice rooms. We had a view of the bay. Location is ideal.right off the main piazza and walking distance to most shopping and attractions.

On the water front adjacent to the stunning Piazza Unita D'Italia. Friendly staff, although somewhat hit & miss at breakfast. We had a suite with views across the bay, well refurbished, huge bathroom, very comfy bed and nice Etro toileteries which were generously replaced daily.
Had to argue for free WifI which was quoted in the room.

Room Tip: The suites are good value and a view of the bay a must.

Great hotel, just by the sea -- old place very nicely renovated and bringing a touch of modernity to this classical palace. Get a room on the sea side - beautiful vue in the morning, even so you can not sleep with open windows due to the noise. Excellent service, as expected in this kind od property; only slight criticism would be related to the breakfast - good, but would benefit from a bit larger choice.

Anyhow, The place to stay at when in Trieste. Last hint - instead of song 23 eur per day valet parking, just park the car yourself a across from the hotel, faster and less expensive.

Nice hotel, the best in the city. A renovated and refurbished old magnificent building. Rooms are very nice, comfortable and well equipped. To my surprise, the restaurant was very good too. They will return any laundry within the same day, the only exception is Sunday. Where in europe can you find this?

The only downside is a very poor internet wifi connection in the hotel.

An amazing hotel with a lovely room, a lovely staff and a great location. The breakfast is delicious and the view from the breakfast room is worth getting up for. I was there for business and my wife just for a break and it met both our needs. The social areas are worth sitting in and enjoying a glass of wine. Not much negative to say about this hotel except the Internet charges which ultimately were not too bad. Great stay.
