“Stay here, and drive to Venice!”
Reviewed 15 October 2011

Vis a Vis is the new part of the glamorous old Hotel Duchi in the absolute center of Trieste. It is uber chic in the new section, although the hotel staff seem to be miles away. If you want anything (including breakfast) cross the road to the main hotel. Our room faced the sea, and was beautifully appointed..a little small, but perfect. Trieste is a great place to stay (beaches, restaurants and nightlife) and it is just about an hour's drive to Venice.The same kind of accommodation will be at least 5 times more in Venice, and you wont have to deal with a million bumbling tourists. Loved this city, and loved this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view

First time to this part of Italy. Trieste was like I feel Vienna might be like. Never been to Vienna. We had excellent service from checking in to the most amazing breakfast,with champagne and checking out. Well above average for service at this hotel. Our room was so gorgeous, very comfortable bed and with shutters opening up overlooking the street and straight through to the sea. Modern bathrooms. I think we were on level 3. Best breakfast anywhere in Europe. Great location, couldnt have asked for better.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the sea. It was lovely looking over the street and beyond.

We visited Trieste because of a concert that was taking place there on July 22 (Franco Battiato - great concert by the way!). Had only read about Trieste, but had never been there. Beautiful place, long coastline, grand buildings, great food. Our choice to stay at the Vis-a-Vis was very rewarding. Right in the heart of the city (bang on the main square), it is fairly new in design and contemporary in style. Very clean rooms, nicely done up, espresso machine, marble covered bathrooms, jacuzzi bath - all at a price which is affordable. Breakfast is served in the Mother hotel opposite (Gran Duchi D'Aosta) - sumptuous to say the least, great for Italian standards. Very recommendable if you are staying in Trieste.

Room Tip: No views or balconies, so it does not really matter which room you book
