Lovely, boutique style hotel that had lovely rooms (albeit rather small) with nice big bathrooms. Breakfast wasn't that good but hotel didn't really seem geared up for lots of guests. Its downsize - not a great location for the main sites of Trieste, lots of walking was required!

Had been travelling thru Europe and meeting my partner in Trieste before going on to Venice. Ideally wanted a quiet place but close to centre but with that something extra to make it special; hotel Victoria exceeded all expectations.

My husband and I spent 5 nights in this lovely hotel. Breakfast was a wonderful start to the day. On our second morning, the barista knew the kind of coffee we wanted and brought it to us immediately. The buffet included sliced fruit, eggs and a meat, breads, cheeses/meats, and a beautiful array of fresh pastries. The room was spacious...

Dear snowcountry_11, I’m so glad to read you enjoyed so much your stay. Yes, I do think that our Breakfast has to be the best possible start of your day, and yes, the jetted tub or the spa upon request should be your proper end to the day. Since we are a perfect match I guess, please make use of...

Fake-fancy hotel. Tries to look modern and stylish. That's all there is to it. The rooms are nice and quite and large but, for instance, the bathroom door does not shut completely, so your roommate can hear all what's going on in there. Very clean, though Location: 20 min walk to the main Piazza. Bright side: there's a supermarket across...

Dear Ambika R, this is the hardest review I guess we ever got. We are modern and stylish, with nice, quite, large and very clean room, as you acknowledge. I'm surprised for the bathroom door, because after your review I made them all checked and no one showed a problem. As per the location, I would like to point out...

We spent 6 nights in Victoria Hotel Letterario in January 2017. From the time we checked in until we checked out, the service was beyond reproach. The entire staff was friendly and helpful and made our stay pleasant and enjoyable. The hotel itself is first-class throughout. We stayed in a junior suite, which had a sitting area with small round...

Dear Steve W, you really know how to make a GM happy: stating that the Literary hotel of Trieste is “in the top 5 of everywhere we have ever stayed (and we are quite frequent travelers)” is simply gorgeous to me. Also, said but someone who stayed with us 6 night is even more aware. Thank you, and please note...

This is a wonderful hotel at a great location for us. Just a short walk to the city center. The service was impeccable and the staff was very professional and courteous. We will be staying here again during our future visits.

My husband and I stayed here for night in December on our way from Val Gardena to Slovenia. The hotel is somewhat convenient to some attractions - main square is 15-20 mins walk, although it is in a busy commercial area. Hotel staff were friendly and efficient. The room smelled faintly of old cigarette smoke, so my guess is more...

Dear Elizabeth P, I can read your disappointment and I am sorry for it because I know we are not simply a decent hotel. We try very hard to give everyone very high standards.
