My wife and I stayed for two nights. The location was good. However there is no parking. The employees are very service oriented and helped us a lot. Great breakfast in the morning. Definitely can recommend this hotel.

This certainly is a special hotel with beautifully arranged rooms, perfect breakfast buffet. I can only sincerely recommend this place to anyone traveling to Triest. It is only a 10 Min walk to the harbor and in close distance to many interesting locations.

The Victoria is 'letterario' because is has a literary past, with Jame Joyce having lived there for two years - and it feels like "being of that time" in a very good sense. Everything is old - but venerable - even the breakfast plates and cups. This hotel is for the connoisseur - not the catalogue traveller.

Dear susansY7042FR, I’m really sorry you got a room you didn’t like. That’s why it is important to point that out at the very beginning, when the Staff can still make a change of room. The Superior room you were in is at the 1st floor, it is the quietest room we have, but is also the last lighted from...

We enjoyed very good service and the excellent breakfast buffet at the hotel. We were disappointed to realize the distance from the historic area but that was our fault, not the hotel's. Having requested a high floor with a quiet room, we were initially unhappy with the room assigned (it was top-floor but next to the spa). We asked to...

Dear Cheryl C, thank you for your review. We are located on the back of the San Giusto Castle and Cathedral and the historic area is reachable in 10 mins walk. I’m sorry you were unhappy with the room assigned. I assure you that the spa is usually a quiet place since it is only for private use. My Best,...

Hotel and staff were first rate with individual staff being extremely helpful. The quality of the rooms was excellent and standard of house keeping first rate. I would have no hesitation in recommending the Victoria travelling to Trieste in the future.

This modest hotel doesn't normally show up on the radar, but I found it more than adequate for living up to my expectations. I stayed in The Apartment, which is a flat they have available right next door. It has a kitchen and 2 bedrooms (single bed and king size), so good for 3 people. The cost was about 90...

Dear Daniel L, thank you so much for this fine description of our apartments. They are the right solution for those who prefer to be independent still enjoying the 4 stars hotel services.

This was our second trip to Trieste. We enjoyed our stay at Victoria Hotel so much the first time we traveled to Trieste in fall of 2015 that we booked the hotel again in spring of 2017. The hotel is quite charming, the staff are courteous and helpful, and the rooms are a combination of Victorian and ultra modern style....

We could not fault this Hotel. Great location, well appointed, friendly helpful staff, excellent breakfast, lovely bedroom. Loved the literary theme. What more could we ask for? Pity about the weather but that is well beyond their call of duty.
