Very quirky hotel but functional and adequate bit in a great location in the old town.
Bathroom was a bit primitive
Central location, quiet street
1. Dust in the room. 2. Too few hot water, you have to shower very quickly. 3. Chaotic reservation management. The hotel ignored the remark on the reservation about my late arrival (the reception closes at 8 pm). When I arrived, there was no sign where to go. The barista from the neighbour cafe was so kind to lead me to a restaurant situated some streets away where I was given the key, and I had to pay only cash in advance but they could not give me any receipt! Fortunately Fortunately I had enough cash. I could pay the room with my credit card next morning when the reception was open.
The staff were friendly and the room smart in a chintzy mediterranean way. Excellent location but a bit noisy. However these were the sounds of a bustling community (bakers and fishmongers opening early, cafes and bars at night) which meant that there was a lot of good stuff on your doorstep. Good value compared with the alternatives in Trieste.
The bed was hard. My girlfriend liked it, I put my back out.
cockroaches, fortunately not many
The room was very prettily painted, with all the cupboards and walls in the same style. Also the ceiling was painted like a cloudy sky.
The opening hours of the reception could be broader. And the city is rather noisy at night.
Closeness to ferries & city.
Need a fan in the room - because of the noise from below - Trietse does not sleep - we had to close the windows & the room then had no air circulating.
