It was a very stylish, well positioned hotel with good size rooms, especially the ones with balconies overlooking the sea. The hotel was a good mix of old and new with the recent renovation retaining the important elements of the old worlde hotel whilst introducing all modern amenities and comforts.
Very helpful staff. The weather.
Excelent location, great rooms, recently renoved, nice furniture. All new. Near the sea Poor breakfast, very expansive wireless.
Everything! Fantastic room, good service, great location. One of my favourite hotels I have ever stayed in. I didn't like the exorbitant charge for wireless internet.
Room very comfortable, large and quiet beautifully designed splendid brekfast in such luxurious hotel internet in rooms should be free of charge
One of the best hotels we ever experienced.Great position,amaizing design,quiet and relaxing.
Excellent location beside main square in Trieste. Very pleasant and helpful staff, especially on reception.
Excellent location, polite, obliging staff, extremely comfortable/well designed rooms, very pleasant breakfast.
The bedroom was soundproof, and the bed was very comfortable. The buffet breakfast gave a varied choice for everyone.
Beautiful rooms overlooking the water. Perfect way to relax in comfort for a few days of luxury. I can honestly say that I couldn't find any faults.
Beautiful hotel in a great location. Well-appointed with a wonderful balcony and view. The heating system was broken and the staff unable to fix it. It was freezing in both areas of the suite and extremely uncomfortable.
Good service at breakfast with the coffee of your choice
location, ambiance, service, friendly and helpful staff, cleanliness. no
Car park garage left the car door open with keys and other personal item inside.
Close to everything you need, hotel was excellent staff very freindly
very friendly and helpfull staff, good location near the centre, nice decoration of the lobby and groundfloor the rooms are worn out and need serious refurbishment to match with the NH standards and with the refurbished ground floor.
IT's close to the center.The breakfast is "correct" for a 4 stars hotel. I went to this hotel because I had a very good experience with nh hotel close to bergamo airport, but this one is totally different, the heating was not working,and they dont have more cover neither pillows. Only one towel for two persons,to get hot water in the shower you had to wait minutes,by chance we find a parking place close to the hotel, but they dont have parking.
very convenient location, comfortable room, helpful and friendly staff
the staff were vice nice and hepful the price was a little high
in general friendly staff
I liked the room and the variety of food for breakfast. It was not a good idea to open a window because of traffic noise. This was not a real problem when the air conditioning was on.
clean and efficient ther was a slight smell of smoke in my room.
Buffet breakfast - friendly staff - easy location - quiet room
the hotel is close to city centre, to the bus and train station, good service and facilities the hotel is located close to main road and it was very noisy
Nice room, ancient breakfast space No
The room was very good and so was the breakfast. Location is good. The is no proper parking arrangment
Excellent location near railway station and bus stops, nice service, nice atmosphere, clean room, silence.
Nothings Staff and food
The building, the decor & the room itself were all attractive. We even had a balcony overlooking an attractive, yet busy, square. It was handy to buses, trams & trains & the impressive central city piazza was within easy walking distance.
Great location and friendly staff; small but nicely fitted rooms, very good breakfast; great value for the money; will stay here again; cleanest sheets/towels of all time.
Very clean hotel, our room was not the most quiet one (one of the window was near the conditioner engine). But overall for one night stay and for good value for money we consider this hotel as a good one. Its' locaion is fantastic - just near the main beatifull square.
central location, modern interior, good breakfast rather thin walls between rooms
Urban Design has really urban design :) We didn't smoke, but in the last night there was a strong smell of smoking? maybe from neighbors.
Staff was very kinde and profesinal.
Breakfast was really excellent and delicious! The minimalism was quite depressing. White walls, no pictures. Internet didn't work in room either
It is very central and modern
Comfortable bed and good breakfast. I was upgraded to a loft suite at no charge becase I had booked a long stay. The loft suite was very nice. Loft rooms were accessed by narrow, winding steps. Difficult to bring up luggage as the elevator was up about 5 steps from the ground floor.
it's unique location, the friendly staff, the level of services, the super-design rooms and common areas. the pugging of the building, there were a lot of noises from the hotel corridors and the neighbouring streets
the hotel location, the services, the room
The location, the atmosphere and the swimming pool. Breakfast staff could have been more friendly and helpful. They should have explained their system which differed to other hotels I have stayed in.
Wonderful location, cleanliness or room, helpful reception staff. Breakfast service could be improved but was fine.
Location, location, location Staff are polite but lacks the snappiness you need for a luxury hotel
Location is perfect, the rooms are very comfortable and relatively big. The breakfast could be better!
The helpful and friendly hotel staff There was no drawer space in room 302
If you are staying in Trieste…this is the only place to stay. It’s a beautiful hotel in the famous Piazza Unita. The staff are extremely helpful, the pool/sauna/steam room and spa treatment is an added bonus. Breakfast has everything, including a glass of Prosecco if it takes your fancy. We will definitely stay there again sometime…
Location, luxury, breakfast, restaurant........ Nothing!!!!
Excellent location; good breakfasts
Breakfast was exelant, stuff very friendly and pleasant N/a
An excellent location, ambience and services. Waiters at the Hary´s bar/restaurant does not carry away useless and used pottery when having your meal. The starter pottery was on the table when we were having our pudding (for dinner). You You ve to use the hotel driver for parking despite you does not trust enybody driving your car. The hotels usualy permit it.
breakfastroom room had small window on a small courtyard and was therefore dark. I like rooms with a view.
location no tea coffee facilities in room
Friendly staff, clean and comfortable room, perfect location in the center of Trieste, decent breakfast buffet the free wireless internet connection was very slow
Central location in Trieste Prepare the rooms for guests!! Too slow garage service for the price!! Arrogant check-in staff!! Latest checkout at 10 am???
The location is right in the centre of Trieste! So basically you just walk out onto the high street of Trieste. The Wifi was not very stable. Breakfast could've had more choices
The room and locality were good. But nothing out of the ordinary for the price. I was actually expecting something rather more luxurious or flamboyant for the price. Given its star rating I was surprised to find no internet, no obvious condusive lounge or public social space - did I miss it somewhere - and no included breakfast (which I knew when I booked). I was told where there was internet in Trieste but could not find it. OK for business but lacked a bit for tourist.
The rooms lacked comfortable chairs
Excellent location in center of town, but still quiet. Double paned windows block out virtually any street noise. Very courteous staff. Only that on booking.com it said that pets were free, then when they sent the confirmation email they said that pets were 10 euro. When I told them about booking.com info they apologized and did not charge me. Nevertheless kind of weird for such an expensive hotel.
Excellent location and service! No.
Friendly staff. Excellent location. Good breakfast included.
i will never come back - not clean, very poor 3 star hotel everything
good staff, comfortable, centrally located, difficult to find, no view at all, small room
centreal position to main attractions, restaurants etc
Central location - the main sights of Trieste were just a few steps away. The rooms were very comfortable, even though they were rather small, there was lots of convenient storage space.There was free internet available. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were dark (this is just a comment - not a negative), but this is unavoidable because the hotel is located on a little alleyway. So if you want a view from your window don't go here. It was also a bit difficult to find because we came from the wrong direction and didn't see the sign pointing up the alley.
Quiet Room near shopping and attractions. Internet service in room. Helpful staff. Attractive room. Apparently the Hotel James Joyce was fill, so we were put in new Urban Hotel across the alley. Very new, very nice. Room very small.
The location was very good. The staff were cold and distant. We felt like they had no interest in us. The James Joyce is the older sister of the ultra modern urban hotel next door. It has nobody on duty there and we felt like we were seated at the kids table. Nobody noticed us.
Quiet, and car-free area that was also very central. Excellent care in the room itself. Large double bed. Room was dark, scarcely any daylight coming in. More facilities to hang or dry towels would be welcome. Breakfast was rather poor - especially tinned rather than fresh fruit in September in Italy ! And the coffee was also rather weak ! Hotel staff not on the site but over the street, and the experience was somewhat impersonal - though staff were always polite.
Ideal city centre location, room overlooked an office across the very narrow street; some noise during night from outside. Very comfortable, clean and excellent staff. NB these comments cover two bookings as we had two rooms, one for our adult daughter and one for us. Would have helped if we could have told taxi driver to leave us at Urban, but we didn't know the hotels were linked. The coffee at breakfast was below par.
very central Hotel is really an annex to to the next door Urban hotel, it has no facilities of it's own. It is in a scruffy alley, one evening we were kept awake by local yobs with dogs in the alley.
nice reception at main hotel next door (seemed to be shared with this hotel) and helpful staff room a little bit small
i liked that it was easy walk from train station, especially after our long travels.. Internet seemed complicated. It has been nice to stay at hotels with internet included.
we stayed in appartment across the road from the hotel. It was very clean. Room was cleaned every day. beds and pillows were a little hard
Near the station but not a horrible, overpriced 'near the station' hotel. Room and bathroom were nice. And Trieste is beautiful.
very helpful reception staff not really; maybe an English speaking tv channel, usually CNN or BBC World is available in most bedroom tv channels but otherwise we found it a very pleasant hotel to stay at.
ideal location near station and city centre clean comfortable rooms good breakfast helpful friendly staff the apartment was well equipped if you did not want to dine out,
Attitude of some of reception staff Access to rooms from lift. Breakfast facilities
the location was wonderful and the staff very nice.
the position, is near to train station. dosen't have internet free.
it was few minuts walk from heart of trieste, beside metro and bus station
Clean large rooms
close to station. not a 4 star hotel
Beautiful room, comfortable bed, wonderful bathroom with a powerful shower, nice amenities, good location, exceptionally clean Air conditioning not very powerful in hot weather conditions, a bit on the expensive side in spite of all of the amenities
Breakfast should be more generous, for a hotel with 4 stars.
The location Small rooms,very limited internet acceess,very limited breakfast choice,not value the money paid
Frendly staff Pillows to hard
maybe the location hotel was very poor, No restaurant, No airco, No Bar, only advantage is that you get internet ( not for free), breakfast was served in a small room with very limited choice
Good position in trieste
The tasteful, elegant and interesting furnishings, and the helpful and friendly staff.
Although it is a clean hotel, I don't know how it gets to a 4 star rating. Visiting many hotels a year this would be a 3 star hotel for me.
While not a 4-star hotel by international standards, the Colombia has made a laudable and successful effort to place itself a notch or two above the run-of-the-mill Trieste 3-star hotels. While the (too small) single rooms may still be a bit under par, the newly furnished double rooms are spacious and quite pleasant. Staff is very friendly.
Very spacious and convenient rooms. A good view on roofs of Trieste buildings. 1)The chambermaid works too seldom. She did not even take rubbish, trash. 2) Kitchens are not equipped with electrical kettle for preparing tea. It is necessary to use a pan.
Excellent and quiet location in the center of the town, clean and spacious apartment. We booked a triple room but we got a double room with an extra bed, which was a little bit short.
Huge room with fully equiped kitchen included. Pleasantly surprised!
Location and suite with spotless kitchen and bath. Nice old building. Major problem - the doors were locked and no one was there when I arrived! I had called in advance to make sure that reception would be open for my 10:30 pm train arrival in Trieste and they said that they would have someone to greet me despite the fact that the reception hours ended at 9pm. I was only saved by the simultaneous arrival of another guest who let me in - but there was no note and no key and no one arrived in reception. If not for ingenuity, I would have had to sleep in the reception area. Also a little run down - rugs, curtains and bedspreads.
The room was surprisingly big and with kitchen, so it's good for a longer stay. The bathroom was big also. The location is great! We could see the sea from our window. It was really hard to find a parking space, but after one hour going around in this little crazy town with crazy italian parking habits we found a place (we thought 20 € per day for parking offering by the hotel was too much).
It was like staying in your own appartment No
