The most important factor for me was the vicinity of a train station. Hotel Colombia offers a pretty good location relative to the city center and the train station. Yet it is located in a very quiet street which is nice in a pretty busy city as Trieste.
Reception personnel was very friendly and tried their best to speak English. The staff at breakfast on the other hand were not that friendly.
While going to the breakfast buffet a second time, my plate was taken away. Key still on the table! And the breakfast room was not that big that I disappeared out of sight. Things like this are not allowed in a 4 star hotel if you ask me.
A nice little jazz tune at breakfast, design furniture in the lobby and a clean room. Those elements might make for a 4 star rating but that's it. In the bathroom I had to stand in the doorway to dry of after a shower...
The room (basic) had air conditioning and a tv (which did not work)
