We were again staying as guests of the SVBG during the Barcolana Regatta and very happily so. Sotto il Faro is quite simply an excellent B&B. Nothing is too much trouble for the hosts, David & Steff. It was great to be welcomed back, not just by the owners but by Igor the dog! I am slightly asthmatically allergic to cats but they are kept out of the bedrooms and I had no problems sleeping or during the hour so so we spent chatting with Davide over breakfast. This year we stayed in the twin room. Davide had remembered our requests from our last pre-covid visit and blankets were available as well as the light, summer weight duvets. This year we came by car - and another great feature is the covered parking spaces - really useful as parking can be quite difficult. Excellent breakfasts, good nights sleep, friendly and helpful hosts. Another excellent stay.

We stayed four nights and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The B&B is convenient for local bus routes into Trieste and very close to the Societa Velica Barcola e Grignano - so an ideal place to stay for sailors with regattas at SVBG. The hosts. Staff & Davide were welcoming and really put themselves out to make us welcome. Our room was extremely comfortable. The twin wasn't available but an extra bed was placed in the room we stayed in and that was absolutely fine. The B&B is quite close to the main railway line to/from Venice but the room was surprisingly quiet thanks to really good double glazing. No problem in the summer either thanks to excellent air conditioning. Breakfast was "spoiled for choice", fruit, cereals, bread, meats, cheeses, dessert type foods, excellent coffee. In the rooms too there were many extra food and snack items. I could criticise - some of the breakfast selection was not totally fresh daily, but everything was carefully covered and chilled so no hygiene issues. The owners do have cats and a dog which do pass through the breakfast room. I am slightly asthmatically allergic to cats and did have a minor problem with one blanket in the bedroom that made me sniff. But I pointed that out and it was swiftly removed. Great B&B. If returning to Trieste would definitely want to stay there.

Absolutely professional hospitality! Our room was spotlessly clean and beautifully furnished. Davide and Stef are very friendly and helpful hosts. Private parking is safe. For breakfast, we were offered a great selection of fruit, cereal, bread, cheese, ham and delicious desserts and coffee. We enjoyed every minute of our stay.

I stayed at Sotto il Faro with my husband over Easter. The B&B has only three rooms which are comfortable and lovingly decorated by Stefan and Davide. Their living room doubles as breakfast room in the morning where they will serve you a delicious cappucino and give you a lot of recommendations for all things Trieste. Their place is very cozy and you feel warmly welcome. The location is a bit outside the center but well connected by public transport, which we however didn't use since we came with our own car.

The room is tastefully designed and breakfast was good and generous. The hosts are very knowledgeable about the area, passionate about their countries. We were lucky to have booked this place. Good place to stay on our way to Noventa. ε€ΌεΎ—ζŽ¨θ–¦πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ» The only downside was the recommended restaurant was not as good as we expected.
