Our visit to Trieste was at the end of our vacation after visiting the French Riviera and Venice. It proved to be a lovely, relaxing ending to our trip to Europe.
The hotel is actually made up of three buildings - an older building which you see on the website picture, a new building next to it and another building across the road. It is located on the main road to Trieste but we did not find it to be noisy.
We stayed in the new building and had many conversations while making our reservation about a room with a lovely, unobstructed view. When we checked in, the room seemed small, dark and had a less than desirable view. We decided to pay extra and requested one of the suites with a large balcony. We were very glad we did that as the view was amazing as the sleeping area (a small room off the sitting area) had glass sliders opening to the balcony and the seating area had a wall of windows.
The suite was very clean but sparse with furnishings. What was there was rather old with covers over the sofa. It would have been spectacular with a little update in the decor and some interesting touches such as a small table or chair near the window, some art pieces, etc. The only other issue with the room was that the AC took almost two days to kick in and, since the sun hits this hotel all day, it was quite hot until the AC worked correctly. The bathroom was large, bright and with a state of the art shower. There was plenty of closet space.
Breakfast buffet was excellent - food was well prepared and coffee was delicious. You have the choice of having breakfast indoors or out on the terrace which was beautiful - breathtaking views! We had dinner there a few times and enjoyed our meal and service.
We did not use the beach or the so-called hotel pool which is not a hotel pool at all. It is a public pool. However, we did enjoy walking the path to the harbor beyond the pool area.
In summary, if we return to Trieste sometime in the future, we would definitely stay here. We had a car and did not mind driving into town. Hotels there looked very nice, but very large and definitely did not have the serene view of this hotel.
Higher floor has better views.
