“Nice location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2012

Nicely located in the square of the main railway station, 15 minutes walk from the central Piazza dell'Unità.
The hotel looks a little bit oldish.
We had a very large, air-conditioned and clean room. However, there were no shutters on some windows (only ineffective curtains).
There is no private parking space, payment parking available in the square or in the car park close to the railway station (both for a fee).
Price was not cheap but still acceptable.

Have just spent one night in this hotel and would not stay there again. Room small and basic. Toiletries were of the sachet variety. Main thing hotel has going for it is it's proximity to the railway station.

Good Hotel with friendly staff ideally located for the railway station and buses.
convenient for visiting the town. Rooms are large and well furnished and spotlessly clean although the lighting is a bit dim but comfortable beds The one drawback is the internal plumbing can be a little noisy particularly from the next room, but I suppose this is to be expected from an older Hotel. Breakfasts are continental but the choice is a bit limited and the same everyday. Does not have a restaurant nor a bar. Would recommend it if you want simple straight forward accommodation.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2012

We spent 2 nights here in May 12 on a long weekend visiting Trieste,

The hotel is in the same square as the bus / railway station and easy to spot. The receptionist (in fact all the staff we encountered) spoke really good English and were friendly and keen to help in any way they could.

OK - its an old building and han't been rennovated recently BUT it has a certain charm - a large sweeping stairway - chandaliers and a real sollidity reminiscent of yesteryear - a charachter missing from so many hotels. The room was roomy - good tv, comfy bed etc but only 1 pillow each. Bathroom was good - only a shower BUT a good one. The free toiletries were those nasty little tear open sacheys though.

The range of stuff on offer for Breakfast was limited - usual Itallian cold buffet but no meats and just processed cheese slices but the bread rolls were freshly made each day.

All in all for the price we really liked the place.

Had I written this review 20 years ago it probably would have been much more enthusiastic. The hotel has a lost-grandeur feel to it which indicates that 50 years ago this was probably a great place to stay at.
Today however it is simply far below par. And I am not referring to the old-styled furniture, the marble floors etc. In honesty, beds are pretty comfortable and the bathroom is very decent, everything seems clean.
What is intolerable nowadays are things like the incredible amount of noise (there are no carpets on the floor, room doors have to be slammed in order to close, anti-fire doors in the corridor also open and close with the great deal of noise, walls and ceilings sound paper-thin), the awful breaksfast (I've had the worst coffee and orange juice of my life) and the overall feeling of coldness and decadence that rules the place. And it's not that cheap either.
The only reason why I give it 2 stars (as opposed to 1) is the convenient location, right in front of the train station.

Room Tip: stay away from the anti-fire doors in the corridors

I could not believe, that there could be so poor 3 stars hotels in Italy! They proud for big rooms, but they are terrible, furniture is old and the towels are dirty, like someone has cleaned shoes with them. Breakfast is impossible to eat and bathroom looked liked communism style. Don't stay there until they make a renovation!

Stayed in this hotel on our single night passing through Trieste and we were very impressed. Cheap accommodation, clean spacious rooms, and very friendly customer service. Receptionists and manager went out of their way to exceed customer expectations. We left very happy and would definately stay here again.
