“Hidden tree & hidden treasure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2012

It's called the "hidden tree", yes, they do have one , and a Roman column too for that matter. This place is great, the GPS got me close , but travelling solo , Im sure I drove past it twice. Parking, I hoofed it . The staff were excellent and very welcoming . Julio helped me find my car he recommended a place a few blocks to park , at 1euro an hour , and a 10 euro fine, by Australian standards this is complementary parking in my book . The room were excellent with cooking facilities, but why bother. You are in the best part of Trieste , a short walk to the centre, short walk to the harbour you are surrounded by fantastic seafood Osterias . If you want the real thing , there is 5 fish shops in 100 m. Just ask Julio ,he will walk you to several restaurants just to make sure they are open .Try the smoked fish shop around the corner Sulamere --its a great spot for a snack and vino. I love the idea . There are plenty of bookshops in Trieste - don't know why ? A bonus is the coin laundry just across the narrow street. I could watch my washing going round from my room. Breakfast was plentiful and a delicious to the day . My stay was for family tree research, but I would recommend this place and its staff .a great place to stay

You need to be prpared for the stairs (no lift) but this is a lovely hotel in the historical centre of Trieste. The rooms are named after trees, and are comfortable (maybe a bit spartan, but none the worse for that). Bathrooms are old, spacious and fun (everything works...)
Breakfast is very pleasant, with a splendid assortment of local jams, fresh brioche and a smile from the hostess.

Room Tip: depends on your energy level :-) If you get out of breath easily, ask for a room on the first floor!

This small hotel/residence feels both homey and like a museum at the same time. Amazing artwork, art books, and a collection of antique coffee brewers line the cheery breakfast room, and each guest room is named for a type of wood (ebony, teak, etc). The owner/manager and his father (the antique dealer) are deeply knowledgeable natives of Trieste who can offer wonderful advice about the city. Friendly fellow guests do the same, over deicious croissants and fruit/cereal/yogurt breakfasts.
Very reasonably priced and within walking distance of the main sites of Trieste, from Roman ruins to Hapsburg castles and a shining seaport. Truly a perfect home base from which to explore this magical city, with a tiny Roman ruin of its own, right in the hotel lobby.

Room Tip: One room on the top floor has a small kitchen and loft with sleeping area for kids, making it a very...

This small boutique hotel sits on a cobblestone street with the narrowest of sidewalks at its entrance and parking garage was a distance away and with their one-way streets the owner's son offered to have my husband follow his motorbike by car and then road him back to the hotel on the backseat of his scooter. Clearly motorbikes are the vehicles of choice in Oldtown Trieste.

The hotel is run by a family who welcomes guests in a way that tells you they love what they do. Our room was very comfortable and lovely. The breakfast offered a variety of choices – all good – with cappuccino made with soy milk (if one asks). At the recommendation of Julio the owner's son we ate at small family-owned restaurants off the beaten tourist path. Both meals were memorable and creatively made. Trieste is a jewel and we highly recommend this hotel.

We have nothing but praise for this hotel. First of all, the location was excellent -- a few blocks from the main plaza opening out to the Adriatic Sea, right in the old city center, nevertheless on a relatively quiet street. Our room, actually a suite with a kitchenette, was spacious and included all necessary amenities -- closet, dresser, tables, chairs, and a good view of the street from the window. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom had a bidet (!) and a good shower, etc. The breakfasts were plentiful, and delicious, including great cappuchinos, etc. (for which the city is famous). The innkeepers were gracious hosts, providing dinner recommendations and detailed directions to wherever we wanted to go, not charging us for taking the bottle of local wine provided in the room (part of a mini-bar of things that we could purchase), calling a taxi for us, and helping us with our luggage at the end of our stay. We arrived after normal check-in hours, and this was no problem at all -- Donatella, the front desk person with whom we dealt, sent us the code to their front door lock, and the key to our room was waiting for us inside. Aldo, the owner, whom we met during our stay, showed us the tree surrounded by a glass case, right next to the breakfast room, for which the inn is named--The Hidden Tree. There is also a Roman column, preserved, right there, in the middle of everything. L'Albero Nascosto also features a parlor on the ground floor, furnished with beautiful art deco antiques and paintings that would not have been out of place in a museum. We were completely satisfied and can't recommend this place highly enough! We hope to return and are spreading the word among our friends.
