We stayed in the Hotel Portacavana for 1 night as a pit stop. It was a group of 4 girls, driving and we picked it because of the central location and free parking. It was a huge disappointment. We arrived to find there was no parking. The location is great but after 1 lap around the streets we realised that...

The hotel is situated right in the center of the city, therefore museums, shops, sightseeing, restaurants and seaside resorts are easily to be reached by feet. Despite the hotel is situated in the center, it is extremely quite. The room is comfortable, clean and cozy. The staff, who speaks Italian, English and Spanish, is truly nice and they are always...

First time I've written a negative review. Arrived to find we were actually staying in a un-staffed building at a different address. When we got there, another guest had locked the connecting door to the bathroom believing it was their private bathroom. Im not sure why they had a key to lock a communal area. Called the number on the...

Nice personnel, helpful, but not too clean, especially dust on all the wooden furniture tops. Restaurant food smells in the room, long-into-the-night noise from tourism on the streets below, no light in the stairwell at night if you go out, NO WIFI in upstairs rooms--you have to spend your free time in the office using your phone or computer there....

Unless you are about to sleep on the street. .. then don't!!!! I usually refrain from posting negative reviews.... but this one was just too much to handle.... we booked as we were told it was nice etc.. we just did not expect it to be so bad... I mean a 3 stars is a 3 stars and not 1/4...

Well, this can happen in Italy. Hotel has a great location, but everything else is really horrible. It is located at first and third floor of an old building, with tight and labyrinth like hallways. Bathroom was just too small. I don't know if slightly larger person could even fit there. And room, well, that was first time that I...

Although well located in the center, very noisy despite the double glazing windows. It advertises air-conditioned but non existent. Shower in our room was so narrow to get in that if you happen to be overweight, let alone on the obese side, you do not manage to get a shower. Staff not particularly friendly except for Mary who tried to...

I am not saying this is the best hotel in town, but you get the exact service for your money what you paid for. It is a relatively cheap one star hotel, down town. The staff was kind, the room was clean, and everything was by walking distance.

... namely a cheap place to stay a few days in Trieste. My single room was extremely small, not even a chair could fit there, but it was clean. I was assured to have WLAN, but it works only in some places on the floor, not in the room. My TV never really worked, but I cannot complain, because I...
