“Phantastic location in a sympathic city!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

The hotel is a Belle Epoque building directly located at the waterfront of Trieste with amagnificent view over the port and bay. The interior is completely renovated and design-stylish, but with an agreeable, warm atmosphere thanks of elegant colours and illumination.

For some reason I had always wanted to go to Trieste and our four night stay there and at the Hotel Savoia Excelsior was wonderful. The hotel is beautifully decorated and we were upgraded at no cost to a deluxe room. Having a balcony and a view of the Adriatic made our stay even more delightful. The service was efficient and the breakfasts were very good. The only con was erratic wifi but I have decided that you need to get away from the Internet and emails while on vacation so it was just as well the wifi was slightly erratic. The hotel's location is superb.

This hotel was way beyond expectation and couldn't believe on arrival how grand it was. Beautifully kitted out throughout with furniture and decor of the highest quality. Staff and breakfast were both excellent and we had a huge room which had brilliant views out over the bay and port area.
Trieste itself was a very pleasant surprise. We imagined it to be an industrial port but the elegant buildings and pleasant centre of town made it a great place to stop off on the way to Croatia as its just off the Autostrade.
Really enjoyed this hotel and would definitely stay again.
Downside would have to be lack of parking nearby, you have to take your chance of being able to park on the street.
Some great restaurants and bars within easy walking distance.

We decided upon the Savoia Excelsior as we wanted to enjoy our final night of our holiday and be treated very well. We arrived via a ferry from Rovinj, and the ferry port was a convenient 5 minute walk to the hotel.

When we arrived we were pleasantly upgraded to a sea view room at the end of corridor, which was lovely. The room was very large and the bed was super comfortable.

The location of the hotel was fantastic and we were able to find a number of restaurants nearby, we even had a little passeggiata afterwards through all the small side streets.

When we returned to the hotel we tested out the cocktail list and were thoroughly impressed, and the drinks were also reasonably priced.

Breakfast was in a large and naturally lighted dinner room, and was very well stocked. The only negative thing was that the orange juice wasn't freshly squeezed and was a bit fizzy.

We both enjoyed our stay.

Several reviews say that this hotel could be a 5 star and I agree. It was recently refurbished and they did a fantastic job! We came here after being at a 5 star and actually found this one perhaps a bit nicer. it has a quaint feeling. The location was great as well...although we wanted to go to the beach and that was a bit difficult to locate. The people at the hotel were great though and called around a bit for us. In the end, we went to the Tre Marlin or something like that- it was a hotel that had a restaurant connected to it and was right on the water. It was just at the start of the Bacola (sp) portion. They had chairs there for people at their hotel and an area where you could go in the water. We could take the bus there and they were willing to rent us chairs. Back to the hotel- the breakfast was very nice. there was a basketball team staying there at the same time however and so the first day we got down there to have breakfast and there was a bit portion of seats set off for the basketball team but not more available seats for us regulars. it was a bit uncomfortable. The rooms were lovely, beds comfortable, amenities amazing! We were in a suite and they had Etro shampoo, etc. All the little design details were great! All in all, it really added to our stay in Trieste. There was also a great little pizzeria close by where you could get pizza starting at 6,50 euros. Very pleasant, not over crowded, close to things in the town.

After touring several cities in Northern Italy, I find this the best for service, accommodations
& breakfast buffet. No request was unreasonable & was fulfilled with a smile.
The room was roomy & luxurious.

Room Tip: Just ask for your preference.

After a long flight form Melbourne to Venice and a 2 hour drive, my wife and I plus 4 other fellow travelers stayed for 3 nights from the 2nd to the 5th of this month at this fine hotel.
The rooms were very well presented and comfortable. The hotel itself is spacious and has a feeling of quiet efficiency.

As a minor aside, I am not sure why some hotels provide face washers and others don't. This one did not.

Breakfasts were well catered and presented with good service.

At check in and out the staff handled the process efficiently. The only deficiency was no concierge services.
