“excellent location”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Hotel is in center of everything in Trieste :) . It is in pedestrian zone, but there is hotel parking (just to unload your things) 20 m from hotel. Parking is available but on another location but it is not free (you can leave your key on reception and guys will take good care of it ). Rooms are little bit small but it was ok. Wi-fi is free, breakfast was excellent with variety of everything.

Pros: Clean, large room and bathroom, comfortable bed, effective air-condition, quiet (situated on a pedestrian street), friendly and helpful staff, great location only 5 minutes from the central square.
Cons: Breakfast buffet only so so, ie. luke-warm coffee and semi-stale bread. But acceptable.
All in all great value for the price.

I stayed at this hotel in the hottest August week-end with my husband and I really appreciate the air conditioning
Style: modern and elegant: you can smell the “Belle Epoque” era, with all the modern comforts.
Location: in the centre of Trieste, 5 minutes walking from Canal Grande and Piazza Unità d’Italia. Rooms: my room was perfect. Not big, but extremely comfortable. Modern furniture, with a large desk, two chairs, flat screen television, large wardrobe and chest of drawers. Comfortable bathroom with tub. Spotless clean and silent, excellent for light sleepers like me.
Food: had a b&b treatment. Breakfast was fantastic, with a large choice of cakes, croissants, fruit, etc.
Staff: the best feature of the hotel. Always attentive and helpful.
Really enjoyed my staying, in case I visit again Trieste I will definitely choose this hotel.

Room Tip: Never by car! Very hard to find parking.

Stayed here two nights. The hotel is well situated in a pedestrian precinct in the centre of the city but within glimpsing distance of the sea. No hotel parking, but if you leave your car around the corner they will park it securely and bring it back whenever you want it during the day for 23 Euros/24 hours. Considering the difficulties of parking here seemed a good deal.
As everyone says, good sized rooms and bathrooms, efficient and controllable air conditioning, professional and friendly staff, and a excellent free breakfast including endless different pastries and pancakes for the children. The same Empire-style adjacent cafe (Continentale) offers a buffet meal for 12 Euros from 12.00 to 21.00 which is very good value. Wine by the glass is inexpensive and somewhat unpalatable, but not bad enough to not have another glass when on holiday. Dog charge 10 Euros for complete stay - very decent.

The Hotel for the price is good value, rooms good size and very very clean.
Breakfast ok standard sort of thing.
Main complaint gave them some laundry that included a polo I really wanted. They shrunk the hell out of it.
.mentioned it to management who promised to look into it: yes that's as far as it got. Yes I should have known better than to send laundry to a hotel but I guess I would have expected some sort of follow up.
So some parts great others I feel show a usual attitude from some hotels. So don't trust them with your laundry.

My husband and I stayed there 4 nights. Our daughter and her family stayed the the near-by Plaza Hotel owned by the same company. The hotel was old yet fairly well updated. The staff was helpful. The lift was small but most are in Europe. Our room faced the street/plaza which was a bit noisy with evening windows open. But I always travel with a sound soother, so I'm always able to overcome noises. Things quieted down after 11 p.m. We were able to walk everywhere and enjoy the nice shopping and cafes near by. They have a free buffet breakfast which was good and serve buffet lunch and dinner for and extra fee. After sampling many of the local restaurants, I think we had our best ( good, but inexpensive ) dinner there. I'd definitely stay there again. We were able to take a train to Venice and back in 1 day. It was a great side trip.

I stayed at the Continentale for the third time just two weeks ago. They have recently upgraded the reception area and lounge on the ground floor. These now look much better and the feeling is more spacious. The rooms are clean and comfortable and quiet. The beds are good and the staff are helpful and friendly. Breakfast is good. This hotel delivers a great price/quality ratio.
