Excellent hotel in Trieste

Posted Jan 11, 2017
Pros: Beautiful, clean, quiet, and spacious
Cons: Their parking service is quite pricey - they could find something better
Very nice staff and great welcome (upgrade to Suite room). The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. The breakfast is excellent and the structure is stunning. Great position too - highly recommended

Beautiful palace on the Bay of Trieste.

Posted Jan 8, 2017
Pros: The staff had written a hand written card extending their welcome and invited us to a drink. Such personal care did not go unnoticed by our family .
Cons: Hot milk for coffee or cereals is self service. They brought me the espresso coffee but I had to go and get the milk. There must be a hotel policy.
Location: It is on the Marina / Bay Area of Trieste. Next door is the largest Piazza of any European city with exposure to the Sea. Magical to wander around.
Absolutely enjoyed the one night stay in the Excelsior Palace. Should have stayed all 3 nights in Trieste instead of going to Muggia.. The staff gave me an upgrade to suite with view of sea. All the comforts of home, even a kitchen.. Breakfast room was very elegant and food was extremely well prepared. I had espresso coffee which the staff prepares and serves at your table. If you drink Americano style you self serve at the huge silver urn. The only hotel in Italy which did not charge for the tourist tax.

Nice hotel in the centre of the city

The location of the hotel is great. It is near the city square which faces the sea. There are a lot of shopping streets in walking distance to the hotel.

Elegance on the waterfront.

Posted Aug 29, 2016
Pros: It was just beautiful and in just the perfect spot
Cons: Nothing
Location: Trieste is small and the hotel is right in the middle of everything you would want to see - except Miramar and that is way out of town.
A classic hotel from before the first World War that has been restored perfectly. Our standard room was large and comfortable with a small terrace overlooking the water. Very convenient to everything that makes Trieste so interesting.
