I'm not sure why this place is not in the guidebooks. I booked it based on the Trip Advisor reviews and, most of all, the pictures. And I'm delighted I did. Everything about the hotel was great, from the friendly staff (who gave me an upgrade--grazie!) to the public spaces (including a charming reading room with chaises) to the tastefully decorated rooms with their double insulated windows. The hotel is situated just a few blocks from the main piazza and has great views over the harbor and the Gulf of Trieste. From my balcony I watched a huge cruise ship leave port just across the road.
Trieste is a fascinating city, a mixture of the nations and cultures that have held sway over its history. There's a wonderful Roman theatre right in the middle of town and within an easy bus ride the beautiful Miramare, a castle built by the Austro-Hungarian prince who tried to become the Emperor of Mexico (with disastrous results). The Savoia Excelsior makes a splendid base for exploring these sights and many more.
