A very comfortable room with individualist decor, a tasteful and eclectic mix of modern and historic.The bedroom had a door to a spacious terrace balcony with interesting plants and small trees. A generous breakfast is served in a most interesting kitchen. There was the opportunity to meet other interesting guests, and hear much history from Laura (only if one wanted the information). The weather was perfect, easy to get about, on foot and public transport. The historic old coffee houses are wonderful, and the boat trip to Muggia were a couple of the highlights for me.

We stayed at this amazing B&B for three nights in October & it was an absolute highlight of our trip. The B&B is easily located from the train station & is very central to the major attractions of Trieste. Laura is welcoming, kind and generous in sharing her home with travellers. The accommodation is superb with quality linen, bath products & perfumes & towels. It is spotlessly clean. The rooms are artistically decorated and a delight to behold. We were in the Madama Butterfly room. The beds were extremely comfortable & we slept soundly.Breakfasts were delicious & include the best cornettos that we had in all of Italy. Laura buys them fresh to order each morning. We had home cooked torte on the last morning that was very special. In all, Laura gave us some amazing suggestions of things to do in Trieste as well as places to eat & visit. On her recommendation we caught a bus to the beginning of a 6km walk from Trieste to the small town of Prosecco. It was an easy walk & had spectacular views of the coastline & surrounds. We enjoyed a delicious lunch in Prosecco (yes, they do have Prosecco on tap) & caught the bus back to Trieste. Even though we only had 3 days in Trieste we managed to drink the best coffee, eat the best cakes & see some amazing buildings, churches & museums while staying in an elegant & welcoming B&B with a lovely host. We can't wait to come back & spend some more time at Lauras.in Trieste. Thank you Laura for such a great introduction to your beautiful city.

What a lovely B&B! I have nothing but positive things to say about my stay. It’s obvious from the moment you step through the door that owner Laura has gone above and beyond in every aspect - the three rooms are wonderfully decorated and filled with beautiful furniture and artwork, the bed and sheets are of very high quality, the kitchen is lovely and the perfect place to eat breakfast and have a chat. I travel a lot and this is honestly one of the best experiences I’ve had. You can tell that Laura has worked really hard to transform her grandmother’s home into a welcoming space for guests to enjoy while still maintaining original touches and it’s historic flair. Laura and her mother Silva went out of their way to share their knowledge of Trieste and help me with my research. I am very grateful for their kindness and so glad to have met them. I hope to be back soon!

I don’t normally review on Trip Advisor but without it places like this would not get the attention they deserve. Laura is a fantastic host and can’t do enough for you, it is like having a friend in Trieste and how better to enjoy this wonderful city? Her B&B is beautiful and full of very stylish touches. A very comfortable bed, lots of space and our own bathroom - totally recommend. Laura couldn’t be more thoughtful or charming. Go! You will be glad you did.

The first place we found on trip advisor in Treste was the Atelier Lidia Polla. We were tired, it was raining and the comments were so good that we didn't look any further. To start with, the place is very well located in downtown Trieste, but parking is just about impossible. Unless you find a parking spot close by you'll need to find a regular parking, which is not cheap, and not very close when you ere carrying bags and umbrellas because it is raining a lot. The room Lidia gave us was so narrow that the two beds couldn't be put together because if they were you'd have to jump over them to get to the window. The ceiling was taller than the width of the room. The pictures of the room look nice, but the reality is hard, my friends, and although the linen were good and clean the room is just way too small and too old to be comfortable. In one of the beds you'll bang your head with the ledge just over the pillow until you learn to cope with it... or move the bed away from the ledge. The worst part of it is that the three rooms have their own bathrooms, but all are outside the rooms. Ours was the farthest away, right at the entrance to the apartment, which at three in the morning makes it an interesting walk with all kinds of noises coming from the old doors, knobs and wooden floors. The miniature bath, and shower, itself would have gotten a decent review one hundred years ago, but definitely not in 2019. Having said that, I have to say that Lidia couldn't have been any nicer. The very old apartment has its charm, the kitchen is beautiful and she did all she could to give as a good breakfast and to help us with recommendations of cafes and restaurants. The final question is: Is this place worth one hundred euros per night? Sorry guys, but no way.

Response from Laurabilu, Proprietario at B&B Atelier Lidia Polla
Responded 1 Oct 2019
I'm sorry to hear that you were not satisfied with your experience. This came as a surprise to me. I did not get the impression that you were unhappy during your stay, especially since you asked to stay an additional night. In any case, the room and services are described quite clearly: on the website, where you can see photos and a video, and in my written email to you. Some information for others who will read your review: the room that you stayed in for one night is a double room with two separate beds called “Carmen” - it is the smallest room and has access to a large terrace and garden. The price of this room for 2 people is 90€ per night (while for one person, the price is €55 per night). For those who wish to stay only one night, there is an additional fee of €5 in all of the rooms. The building does not offer private parking, nor did I ever publicize any information to that effect. I'm sorry that you got rained on. As I explained in our written communication, there are several parking options on the street: either free street parking, parking with a meter that costs €1 per hour (from 8am to 8pm on working days), and an underground parking garage that costs €16 for 24 hours, located a 2 minute walk from the B&B. All of the rooms have a private bathroom (not shared with other guests), external to the room itself. The B&B is located in a historic building from 1860 and was the home of the Triestine artist Lidia Polla, my grandmother. The apartment was restored maintaining the original layout of the rooms and bathrooms. The philosophy of the B&B, which is also my home, is that of a private apartment where I can host guests in a welcoming environment, an idea very different from a hotel. While the beds, linens and towels are hotel-quality and of ample size (a single bed measures 90x200 and a double measures 180x200), the feel is still very much a personal, cozy and artistic space. If the ceiling height, which measures 3.7 meters, disturbed (in your words) the proportions of the room (2.4 meters wide and 5.5 meters long), I'm sorry to say that there is not an easy solution. Cordially, Laura Mi dispiace che vi siate trovati male, anche se, quando siete stati qui, non ne ho avuto l’impressione data la vostra richiesta di poter soggiornare una notte in più. Ad ogni modo la camera e i servizi sono descritti molto bene: sul sito, dove potete trovate le foto, nel video e nella mia email. Per informazione nei riguardi di altre persone che dovessero leggere la vostra recensione; la camera nella quale avete soggiornato per una notte è la camera doppia con i letti separati “Carmen” - la più piccola che ha l’accesso all’ampia terrazza e giardino. Il prezzo di questa camera per due persone è di 90€ per notte (mentre per uso singola è di 55€ per notte). Per i pernottamenti di una sola notte c’è un supplemento di 5€ a persona in tutte le camere. La struttura non offre parcheggi privati né li pubblicizza.  Mi dispiace di non aver avuto la capacità di far smettere di piovere. Come ho spiegato nella nostra comunicazione scritta, ci sono svariati parcheggi nella strada: gratuiti, a pagamento a 1€ all’ora (dalle 8 alle 20 nei giorni lavorativi), e un parcheggio sotterraneo a 16€ per 24 ore a 2 minuti a piedi dal B&B. Tutte le camere hanno il bagno ad uso privato (non in condivisione) esterno alle camere.  Il B&B ha la caratteristica di trovarsi in una dimora storica del 1860 che era la casa dell’artista triestina Lidia Polla, mia nonna. L’appartamento è stato restaurato mantenendo la disposizione delle camere e bagni originale. L’idea del B&B, che è anche la mia residenza, nasce proprio con la filosofia di creare un appartamento privato di ospitalità, che è molto diverso da un albergo. Solo i nostri letti, le lenzuola e gli asciugamani hanno caratteristiche alberghiere e sono stati scelti per l’alta qualità e le dimensioni grandi (il letto singolo misura 90x200 e il matrimoniale 180x200). Se il soffitto di 3,70 metri ha disturbato, a vostro dire, le proporzioni della camera (che misura 2,40m di larghezza e 5,50m di lunghezza), è un problema di difficile soluzione. Cordialmente, Laura
