    The location was perfect for my arrival from the bus station and then early departure from the railway station the next morning. I found the staff help and friendly and my room was clean and comfortable for a single room. Breakfast was excellent, delicious pastries and good selection of fruit, and cold meats and cheeses

    Breakfast is ok, providing the very basics, but it could have been a little richer.

    The staff is very polite and helpful, and the hotel is centrally located, so amenities and points of interest are all within walking distance. At the same time, it's not on the main street, which means it's quiet at night. There's also good wifi. It's a good choice for a business trip or a short city break.

    You asked about the coffee as a bonus question: well it was typical hotel coffee, it's a way to intake some caffeine.

    The hotel was a short walk from the Grand Canal and other touristic points. It was close to the train/bus station. The hotel itself was clean and cool and the staff was helpful.

    Tiny rooms (a single costs 60€ and has a mini bed). Bathroom was not very clean. Maid knocked on my door at 8:00 AM on a Saturday to check if "everything was ok". I was still sleeping. Walls are very thin, and rooms not really soundproof. You can hear everything that goes on in the neighbors room and hallway. Don't be fooled by the newly and tastefully decorated lobby. The rooms are tired and old fashioned and don't match the style at all.

    Nothing really other than perhaps a bit limited in resources if weather inclement.

    Not my usual, business style hotel, but there was just something about it that made me instantly like it. A little quirky and individual in character. Excellent location near railway and bus stations and water-front. Breakfast only meal served but good and very pleasant plus free coffee/tea and soft drink available during the day. All staff very helpful and friendly.

    In sharp contrast to the photo-worthy lobby, the room was quite shabby. My single room was clean but needed a fresh coat of paint and new carpeting. Very old bed. The room felt very much like an old cheap, NYC hotel. Not worth the price. I had payed much less for another nicer hotel in Trieste that was booked for my 2nd night. Only stay here in a pinch!

    - unfortunately i could hear the neighbour's (?) AC very loudly in the single room, even though the room AC was turned off. this was not an issue in the othe room. generally it is quite easy to hear neighbour room's noises through the walls. this is basically the only downside, but it's a central hotel after all, not a quiet country side hut ;)

    - awesome breakfast variety considering the familial atmosphere of the hotel (sweet and - special for Italian hotels - savory options!) - good location (close to train station, close to city center, easily reachable by car) - very very (!) nice staff, very helpful, friendly, motivated - stayed for the 2nd time, will definitely be back - stayed in a single room first and was joined by a friend on July 31 for another two nights, so we moved into a double room - very uncomplicated procedure

    Location. The hotel neighborhood is a place of narrow, small streets: if you don't know Trieste you can feel it rather confusing and labyrintine. Does not help the fact that in the area the Trieste bus lines become meandrous with bus stops absurdly located. Anyhow, you soon realize that the hotel is just at walking distance from railway station and the most important monuments in the city centre.

    For a reasonable price I got a clean, silent room in the Trieste's centre: it's a deal! Moreover, the hotel staff is very kind and helpful.

    Very nice comfortable and clean place. Wonderful servic especially front desk. However parking terrible. Its not 100m. It is far about 500m when you come back from dinner you walk in dark allys with prostitution in the area although it is centraly located. Took us over an hour from the parking lot back to the hotel because their map is not very detailed. The night experience was very unpleasant

    Overall I was very pleased and would stay there again. In particular, the room was kept very clean, hot water was always available, the price was good and it offered a decent choice for breakfast. Location – central, within walking distance of the railway and bus stations (the airport bus arrives at the latter), Pza Oberdan and Via Ghega for the tram and city buses. It’s about half a mile to the centre on foot.
