Great hotel for pre/post flight night. Really nice rooms, very helpful staff, and only 5 minutes from the airport. There's a really cool pizzeria (Pizzeria Europa) just a 15 minute walk away, which allowed us to have a fun night without taking the bus back to Trieste.

We stayed here after arriving late one night at Trieste Airport. It was a good place to stay for a quick stop. Our triple room was quite nice and well equipped (though there wasn't a 'hotel book' to provide all of the hotel details, like breakfast times, amenities, etc).

The staff were ok. They didn't appear to work beyond the minimum required. The "lounge bar" was really just a small bar (only with bar stools, no private tables) literally situated directly next to the check-in desk. While we wanted a drink upon arrival, the bar location deterred this, as we felt as though we were being bombarded by the check-in area.

Breakfast was included in the price of our room and was nice and simple. The restaurant appeared quite nice, though we only ate breakfast.

The hotel advertises on various websites of a "hotel shuttle upon request". Unfortunately, when we arrived late at night, there was no sign of a hotel shuttle (though I requested the shuttle with a time upon reservation). After wandering around the small airport for nearly an hour, we were unable to find anything other than taxis and the shuttle to the various local cities. Upon calling the hotel, they informed us that there was no such shuttle. We took a taxi to the hotel (costs about €15).

The hotel also has a computer and printer at the bar. They apparently also had Wi-Fi; though they never gave us the password at check-in. They most definitely need to get hotel info books in each room, as this and many other questions would be cleared up.

I would definitely recommend this hotel for a quick one-night stay; however, I thought it was important to clarify a couple of the somewhat exaggerated statements on the hotel's website.

We returned to the airport the following morning to go to Trieste by shuttle. The transportation is very cheap (€3.25 pp to Trieste). You can also go to Gorizia and other local cities. I also recommend going to Koper, Slovenia. You can go from Trieste Central Station for €3 each way. It's beautiful and worth the trip.

We were on our way to Dolomites and decided to make a stop somewhere near Trieste, and the dice fell on this hotel. We found it via initalia.com site (which I recommend to anyone who travels to Italy), it was on a discount and the price was only 80e for a twin room- two persons, breakfast included!! It is situated some 20km from Trieste, in an area that is still being built. Some hundred meters from the hotel is a large commercial center with lots of shops, and next to it is a big supermarket with good prices!
The hotel itself is amazing! It is completely NEW!!! It has its own indoor garage, an elevator from the garage to the room door, spotless rooms- exeptionally clean and equipped, perfect selfadjustible airconditioning/heating, free wi-fi internet, a restaurant and a bar for the guests only with very low prices.
The breakfast was a buffet with a wide range of dishes- from those continental and to say regular, covering vegetarean and macrobiotical food, to sweet desk and a wide choice of fruits.
Not to mention that the staf spoke english on a very acceptable level.
All in all- great hotel for more than great price!! Even if a bit more expensive- go for it!!!
