The Hotel is at a prominent location right on the water (across a street). In walking distance is the old town with plenty of cafes and restaurants. Theaters are near and have great programs. The hotel is elegant, we booked a suite and it was very nice - at little "used" but it added to the character. The food and the wine are excellent We will go back!

I recently traveled to Trieste to attend a short conference and although my trip started badly (I had to travel from Cyprus via Athens and Munich, which took nigh on 12 hours), the taxi journey from the very small Trieste Airport to the City began my healing process. The scenery from the winding road along the north east coast of the Adriatic Sea was stunning on an unusually sunny January day. After checking in to the hotel (more on that shortly), in the early evening, I took a walk around town and I was immediately smitten by the city. The roads are clean, the traffic is orderly, people are polite and courteous, no sight of chain shops or junk food eateries, the smell of coffee wafting out of the many coffee shops was intoxicating, the architecture is majestic and charming. I resolved to do more walking over the next 48 hours, which I did and every time I walked out and took a different route, I was pleasantly surprised by the little gems of shops, cafes, beautiful old buildings and so on. During my stay in Trieste, I had a chance to try plenty of their bread, rich risotto, crusty pizza and light as angel-wings lasagne. All high on carbs but absolutely divine, not to mention their cheeses, hams and other cold meats. Here is the thing though, I honestly do not remember coming across a single over-weight person! How do they do it? Back to the hotel where I was staying: Savoia Excelsior Palace over looks the sea, is very elegant, minimalistic in decor and style, comfortable rooms, breakfast is generous and of a very high quality. As for the staff, they are very courteous, without being intrusive or forward, I really liked their style of service. One last point: Trieste is within two hours or less by train to Venice and within much less time to Croatia and Slovenia so, it might make sense to combine a visit to more Than one city / country. Whether you're going to Trieste on business or for pleasure, do not hesitate, go for it. You will not regret it, except for perhaps putting on weight like I did but, we can't have everything.

Position spectacular, rooms spectacular, breakfast spectacular. This is a special hotel where the staff and rooms are top notch and where it is just a very short walk to most amenities. I am looking forward to coming back next year.

Four of us decided to visit Trieste after finding this hotel online during a two-week holiday in Austria. It was amazing. Unique location, design and feel; professional staff; and the most comfortable and well-equipped hotel bar I have seen.
