“Central location and affordable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012

This pension is situated in an older part of town and is within walking distance of the bus station, railway station, main square, and the sea - a huge bonus. When the shops are closed, the shop fronts are covered by roller garage doors, which gives a slightly intimidating impression but when the shops are open it is a vibrant, interesting part of town bustling with locals. A grocery store is close by but not easily recognizable unless you are standing right outside the door.

The pension comprises one long corridor of doors with intriguing green lighting. The rooms we saw all looked fairly similar but not all had their own bathroom. The room was clean with adequate space for the practical traveler plus an opening window. The street is noisy but that is not a problem with the window closed, which is double-glazed. The bathroom was small with some handyman jobs crying out to be completed but nothing that altered the functionality of the bathroom. The owners are friendly and helpful.

The only disappointing factor was that there was no facility to boil water neither in the room nor in a communal area - an early morning cup of tea was not an option at Martha's pension. Having said that, I would definitely stay there again.

This accommodation is suitable for travelers who want to stay close to where locals live and who enjoy immersing themselves in the life and culture of the surrounding environment. It is not luxurious but perfect for the discerning traveler who wants a clean, comfortable bed and a room to call their own during their visit to Trieste.

The location and value for money are a huge plus for this accommodation.

Pensione Marta offers a friendly welcome, comfortable rooms & real value. Crucially, in this city that tends to close down Sun/Mon, Marta is centrally located so that you are close to everything that is going on. Likewise bus & rail stations & ferry terminal all within 5 mins' walk.

the hotel is a two star class hotel. It is sited on the 2nd floor of an 19th century building. The location is very good, since it is close to the main square of Trieste and close to the seaside. The street where is sited is unfortunately queit noisy and whit a lot of traffic. The tennents are very kind people. the rooms are proper and cozy. My opinion is that the compromise between the prica and what you get is very convenient.
