Great hotel., easy to get to - near to the main piazza, restaurants, shops and cruise terminal. Parking was about a block away. You can have the hotel park your car, or you can park it yourself and the hotel will give you a discount. The garage is excellent - well-lit, large spaces, clean etc. On arrival and through out...

This is a modern style hotel. The rooms are clean and not big but again, not as small as you find in many italian hotels. The frontdesk service is great, the breakfast is very good. The hotel's location is superb, and yes it has parking, and is 2 mins away from the sea-side promenade, Hotel Savoia/Cruiseship terminal and Piazza Italia.... More

The rooms and hotel have a beautiful Italian ambiance...full of designer decor and furniture, with touches of its' History. Loved the whole concept around the glass floor! Best breakfast buffet ... a huge delicious selection to satisfy your hunger! The staff... More

As the name suggests this is a really smart hotel. I stayed for three nights and everything was just right. Service was friendly and helpful from start to finish. The buffet breakfast was extensive and included in the price. No extras!

The hotel is centrally located in Trieste. It's easy to get anywhere in the city (which was beautiful!). The hotel looked very nice and stylish, and the staff was nice. We had one of the lofts(?) in a separate building. I believe it was 102 possibly. The room was very large, and was very nice. For some reason, the elevator... More

Urban Hotel Design is a clean, comfortable modernist hotel in the heart of Trieste and close to everything. The hotel provides excellent service, English speaking staff and even parking. Furniture is Italian modern and the sheets are crisp and white. Pillows are dreamy. There is a nice breakfast room with a variety of continental foods and beverages to start off... More

Good rooms and bathrooms, excellent choice of breakfasts, and just a few steps from the main square and the funkiest shopping street in town, Via Cavana. We loved this hotel and would gladly go back next time we're in Trieste.

The hotel is just off the main square, which made is easy to find after my late arrival. My room was clean, comfortable, and very modern. The breakfast was great with ample and tasty food. Also, the service people very friendly.

Cheap/bargain accomodation is at a premium in this part of Italy, so for paying a small amount more, we actually got a lot more. We liked the layout, the spacious comfortable room we were given and the location for visiting the town sights, such as the main piazza. It was useful for getting away by hydrofoil the next morning as... More

The style of the hotel was what attracted us here and we weren't disappointed. Reception was as it should be. The junior suite had all the room we desired. A wide bed, so no conflicts with the wife in the morning about "trespassing", you know. The coffee capsules were missing initially, but a more than adequate supply was provided the... More
