We booked a room late in the evening through a booking agency and the booking was confirmed and paid. When we arrived at the hotel a notice said the reception was closed and it was not possible to reach anybody, so we had to find another hotel. When we contacted them later they said they had waited from 21.00 (we...

During an early evening live music event I sat on the bench in the little Barbacan Square, thinking that it belonged to the pub in front of the hotel. The bench was free and the square is extremely small with few pubs having seats outside with no defined signs to distinguish one from the other. A lady with no uniform...

Located in the city centre (5 min walk to the Piazza dell'Unità d'Italia), very clean, with good wifi connection (I was on the second floor). Simple but nicely decorated. I had the view of the Arch of Riccardo. I did not order breakfasts, but you can have good coffee and croissants on the square in front of the hotel. Reception...

On the whole a good place to stay if you have no car - but I can see the problems if you are driving, and don't know Trieste. The place comprises a reception location, plus some rooms, and then other "outposts" just round the corner. For the (very reasonable) price it made a handy base for a few days' stay,...

The hotel is not very convenient if you have a car. We had to drop the bags off and then park near the port and walk back up the hill. We had booked a room in the Hotel Capitelli but where told there was no air-conditioning (it was boiling)so they gave us a room in the Hotel Barbacan which cost...

The place is a bit complicate to be found, therefore I suggest to call the reception before arriving by car in order to get the right instructions. It is a not typical hotel: the reception is in one building, 100 meters distance there are the rooms in a well new restructured building with modern rooms, the garage is few minutes...
