We stayed for a couple of nights on a short break in Trieste and this was a wonderful chioce. The location is brilliant and rooms good but the warm welcome and advice given by Giorgio and Chiara were very gratefully received.

I stayed here for 6 nights in late October of 2018 and had the best experience ever! This B&B is run by retired Giorgio and his daughter Chiara. They are the two nicest people you'll ever meet and made my stay so comfortable and homey...plus the value for staying here was unbeatable. I have not stayed much at B&Bs as I like to have a private bathroom and many don't but this one does. They have 3 rooms, all with ensuite bathrooms. I stayed in the single room and it was so comfortable and roomy. Great shower/water pressure, comfortable bed, outlets by the bed, desk and in the shower room. The toilet/sink is in one room off the bedroom and the shower/bidet/sink is in another off the main bedroom. The closet was spacious so I could unpack and also store my bags there. Breakfast was super fresh and delicious! When I checked in, Giorgio gave me a sheet with food and beverage options that I could circle...coffee, tea, juice, yogurt, eggs, pastries, cheese, meats, breads, cookies and also indicate what time I'd like to eat. I opted for the traditional Italian cornetto (croissant), cappuccino and cheese/salumi. There was always more than enough food, the cornetto was fresh each morning and Chiara made me the best cappuccino. As there are only 3 rooms, you may eat with one or two other guests or not. Talking with Chiara was a highlight! Giorgio knows a few words of English and Chiara's English is very good. If you want to request something in English and Chiara is not there (Giorgio lives on the property but she doesn't), you can always communicate with Chiara via texting through whatsapp (download it before you leave home). They are great hosts and completely knocked it out of the park for me. Advice about what to do, how to get there, how to get some laundry done, etc. And the location can't be beat. Right in the middle of the city, you're within walking distance to Piazza Unita, the grand canal, restaurants, shopping, places to have un aperitivo each night (like all Triestinos seem to) and a 15 minute walk from the train station. The only reason I took a cab to and from the station was due to bags and being tired. I walked there each day when I was attending a trade show that was located close to the station and it was a quick walk. You can message me if you have specific questions but if you're considering this place, do it now as they seemed like they're full most of the time. PS, "petra" means stone which you'll see through the kitchen and bedrooms.

My daughter and I stayed at B&B Petra for 3 nights in July. It was superb! I would definitely stay there again if I ever return to Trieste... I even would visit Trieste just to be able to stay again in this B&B. It was that perfect! The service was excellent, the room quiet, the food delicious (buonissimo... to practice my limited Italian), and the people who run the B&B are just about the friendliest I have encountered. Touto era perfetto! Gracie mille! Saluti, Joan

Probably the best b&b in Trieste. Like visiting family. Very well situated - fabulous shoe shop on the corner! - turn right for canal area with churches, cafes and pizzeria, and go left for Corza and really good shops and the old town.

We had a wonderful time at B&B Petra. Giorgio and his daughter were wonderful and forthcoming hosts. The location is great to explore the city; breakfast is plenty and good and in a beautiful kitchen. Rooms are very nice, feels very authentic Italian. We definitely recommend to stay here.
