Hmm, I will hardly return there. Wihth order: easy to be reached from Sistiana exit IF you exactly know where to turn because it is not so visible. In the morning the road is crowded with cars and it takes long to reach the near Trieste. Parking is fine, the garden was nice. But my room was the tiniest I've...

The artificial beach and other parts like the terrace are in need of renovation. The hotel is very close to the street. There's continuous noise in the morning from cleaning the nearby park. The cooking at the restaurant is bad.

We stayed three nights in the rooms across the highway. The hotel riviera is lovely and the staff is very good. The housing across the street (Maximilian) is average due to age, wear and tear, & cheap furnishings.

Friendly staff, sophisticated dishes, marvelouse room... these are what you need to spend your holiday in Italy. Trieste, as the sea resort place of the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy, is a must to visit during the Barcolana, the biggest regatta in Europe.

The hotel riviera is located near the beautiful castle of Miramare of Maximilian and Charlotte Habsburg-Lorena. It has a wide terrace on a cliff in front of the sea. I organised a dinner for 100 people with aperitif on the terrace and 4-course dinner inside. The food was delicious and all participants thanked me greatly for the good choice. The...

This is my first trip advisor review. I am writing it because I believe that this hotel is purposefully misleading people, and is being consciously disingenuous. The riviera hotel is lovely. It is on the coast, and it is 'as seen in the pictures' on the website. However, when the hotel rooms are booked out, the Maxamillion Residence is used....

The location is somewhat out of town so you need a car. The hotel is pretty classy, the rooms are nice, well air-conditioned and at least our's had a great view to the see from the balcony. The beds are also comfortable and the room was very clean and even included a evening make-up, which is quite rare in Europe....

Staying here for a few days after a wonderful week in the Slovenian mountains. Maybe it is the comparison but bit disappointed in this hotel. The beds are comfy, room clean and the view from the very small balcony lovely. But things let this place down, little things like no hot drink making stuff in room, no dressing gowns, no...
