“Great experience, spotless and superfriendly!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2013

We had the most wonderful time here! The hotel seems to have new owners who put a lot of love in decorating the hotel and managed to create a very welcoming atmosphere. The room was comfortable, spotless and quite. It also seemed to have been freshly refurbished. There's a a bit of an artistic vibe too, with changing exhibitions, which gives it a more personal touch. The location is central and the couple who run the hotel go out of their ways to help you. They are from Trieste, so they can give you a lot of information, also off the beaten track. We were sad to say goodbye and would definitely stay here again!

We had a great stay here. The hotel has just been totally renovated so our room had all new furnishings, including bed and mattress. A big plus for us. And spotlessly clean! The couple that run the place were lovely and knew all the ins and outs of the city. The hotel is close to the main train/bus station but importantly on a very quiet street so we slept very well.
Would come back again.

The hotel is an ideal base from which to explore the city of Trieste. A ten minute walk takes you to the magnificient Piazza Unita' d Italia, the many different churches of Trieste ( Sant' Antonio, Greek and Serb orthodox churches), the Sinagogue, museums etc. The hotel Abbazia is just a 5 minute walk form the train station. We stayed on the first floor. The rooms and bathrooms have been recently refurbished and are spotlessly clean. The staff is very friendly. Breakfast was good especially the cappuccino partly because they serve illy coffee. Illy coffee is produced in Trieste and you can also tour the illy factory. The hotel has got no restaurant but there are so many good restaurants in town. We really enjoyed the Enoteca Nanut in via Genova. Overall a very pleasant stay.

Room Tip: We stayed on the first floor.

I took this hotel because they had Wifi, and the address was convenient.
I have never been in a more worn down hotel. The paint was coming of the walls, water stay in the shower, the 1. room I had was so cold I had to sleep in my clothes. When I got another, the only chair was falling apart, they placed a closet so big in there, it had to be angled i a corner,- taking up 10 % of the room.
Safe and mini bar ? forget it..... - leaving things in the hotel safe, ment they tape it in with an envelope around....
I really think I have seen been quality in e.i Thailand on a 350 BHT guesthouse- than on this 105 € hotel.
It it's the only option, it can be used.....- but I hope I never come back....

Room Tip: don't go for 4. floor if it's raining. They have roof windows

Dear guest, we are very sorry for the bad experience. We are the new managers of the hotel (from January the 01th, 2013). We are renovating the hotel: new heating, new rooms, a little bit of everything.. Each room has a minibar and a safe, now. We really hope to see You again in a warm and confortable hotel, best regards Kristina e Oriano

Hotel was a very pleasant experience, everybody from front desk to room cleaning to breakfast were friendly and helpful. Hotel and room was clean and attractive. Somewhat expensive. Would stay again on a trip to Trieste, especially if the price could be lowered a bit.

We stayed for three nights in this hotel. The staff was very helpful and nice and the reception staff spoke very well English. They even got a doctor to visit our room when my boyfriend was very sick. They also gave us useful sighseeing and restaurant tips. The room was clean and comfortable. The hotel is located close to the train and bus station and it didn't take long to walk to the city center either.

I was quite surprised when I came upon this hotel, as it differed GREATLY from the photo of the entrance shown on booking sites.There is no longer a marquee, and compared to the newly renovated Hotel Columbia a few doors down, it looks like no one cares about it, either.

Once stepping inside, the lobby area seemed a little shabby as well. As we had just stayed at a 4* in Bologna, we were quite surprised at the the difference 1* made. The room, a triple, as I was staying with my mom and son, was quite large, utliitarian, and the bathroom was quite narrow - no shower curtain and the water sprayed everywhere.

The hardest beds and pillows I've ever experienced - like sleeping on sodden bags of flour), well-functioning A/C - we got the room down to 17C!

Terrific location, close to the train station, supermarket (a small one, about 1.5 blocks away), major bus stop (take the tram to Opicina!). On a side street, so not as much traffic as one street over, but a late night garbage pickup at the end of the block. Helpful staff (Nicolo was great!), limited breakfast, but GREAT coffee and tasty yogurt. About an 8-10 minute walk down to the main drag.

Room Tip: Higher floor to avoid street noise.
