"In the centre of the best restaurants!"
Great place. Receptionist was the best. Booked two nights ended up staying for four nights.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Had to walk up 4 flights of stairs to get to room. Very dark room. Not enough light. Light over mirror in bathroom didn't work. Thinnest towels ever! Tiniest shower & bathroom ever! Found a scorpion in the sink in the morning!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Le charme de l'ancien...le confort de...l'ancien!"
Le seul point positif de l'hotel est sa localisation en centre ville. Pour le reste c'est une grosse déception. L'hotel est très charmant mais passé la porte de la chambre: poussière, sombre, joints de la douche noirs, pas d'aération (insuffisante dans la salle de douche d'où une odeur nauséabonde), odeur des toilettes chimiques, sans parler de la chasse […] d'eau qui faisait trembler tout l'hotel. Enfin, un ventilateur, meme petit, ne serait pas un luxe, surtout à 70€ la chambre...Enfin, la réceptionniste que nous avons vu ne parlait aucune langue étrangère! Bref, pour ce prix là, passez votre chemin! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Meno di niente"
L'unica cosa positiva trovata è stata la gentilezza del personale.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cheap and central."
If you're looking for a bargain in the centre of Trieste, this is it. Great location, great value - and certainly unique decor. Friendly staff. No breakfast, uncomfy bed and thin towels - so if you're looking for something more luxurious, this isn't it. But thank God it exists.Genuine Expedia guest review
"non male, polveroso"
non male, a due passi da piazza unita'. tutto come atteso. unica pecca: troppa polvere in camera.Genuine Expedia guest review
"peccato che non c'è il punteggio "zero""
non lo consiglio a chi ama il profumo di pulito! lenzuola con macchie, muri con aloni, il bidet non aveva senso perché una persona non ci sta. Muri sottili che si sentivano tutti i discorsi dei vicini di stanza.Receptionist gentile (unica nota positiva).Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is really in the historical center of Trieste. The sea is only 5 minutes by foot and you can walk around the whole old-town by foot from here. But the hotel is kind of over-priced and the price/value ratio is not really good. The building is an old apartment house with a few rooms renovated. There was no AC and we couldn't even sleep because […] of the heat. The area is very noisy, there's a bar on the 0th floor. You can only leave your car on the streets of Trieste and the parking price is also expensive. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"very noisy and no air condi"
Cheap price, but no worth to go. Position is very good, very central, but without air-condition and it's not possible to sleep until morning, at least during weekend. I would not go back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Stanze arredate molto carine in pieno centro, comodissimo, pulito ed economico. Attenzione, non c'è aria condizionata!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"vicino alle principali attrazioni"
il personale è stato gentilissimo l'unica pecca l'aria condizionata in camera!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very strange and extremely tiny hotel"
11/24/14 0605987 Belgrade, Serbia
Well, this can happen in Italy. Hotel has a great location, but everything else is really horrible. It is located at first and third floor of an old building, with tight and labyrinth like hallways. Bathroom was just too small. I don't know if slightly larger person could even fit there. And room, well, that was first time that I saw something like that..And I won't describe it, you can see for yourself in the pictures. There is no daylight what so ever in the room. However it is fer to say that for this price (60 euros per night) all other hotels in Trieste at this time had shared bathrooms, so conclusion would be to pay a little bit more and find something normal because this is awful even for one night. Wifi was very good. Trieste is a wonderful little town with very large and beautiful buildings..
"To be avoided"
08/05/14 Turflover2013 London, United Kingdom
Although well located in the center, very noisy despite the double glazing windows. It advertises air-conditioned but non existent. Shower in our room was so narrow to get in that if you happen to be overweight, let alone on the obese side, you do not manage to get a shower. Staff not particularly friendly except for Mary who tried to be as helpful as possible (obtained a fan to help with the heat!). She also admitted that the shower cubicle was probably incorrectly installed. The other receptionist only said "all showers are the same", end of story. Reception only manned from 8 am to 8 pm. Only provides one key for each room so if you are sharing, in order to get in outside reception hours, you have to stick together, otherwise no possibility to get in. In summary, to be avoided at all costs!
"Service for your money"
06/10/14 don d Budapest, Hungary
I am not saying this is the best hotel in town, but you get the exact service for your money what you paid for. It is a relatively cheap one star hotel, down town. The staff was kind, the room was clean, and everything was by walking distance.
"I had was I was looking for..."
09/21/12 Luigi_sr Munich, Germany
... namely a cheap place to stay a few days in Trieste. My single room was extremely small, not even a chair could fit there, but it was clean. I was assured to have WLAN, but it works only in some places on the floor, not in the room. My TV never really worked, but I cannot complain, because I never asked anyone to fix it. The bathroom was nothing special but OK, and the personnel was friendly and helpful, within the narrow range of services that such an accommodation can offer. I would come back, not with 100% pleasure, but if necessary...
"The worst hotel I've ever stayed in"
10/29/11 Susan158 Branford, CT
I stayed here because nothing else was available. The "reception" is in the seedy bar next door and there is absolutely no service. The decor looks nothing like the picture. The room and hallway are garishly painted in dark, Gothic colors.The stairway is dim and cold, and there was no heat at all in the hotel, although we asked several times if it would warm up at night. The walls are thin- I could hear a child coughing all night. There is a guest book in the hall and people wrote about bugs, mice and dirt. This is a scary place!

We've just returned from a short break at this hotel. Our room was spacious and comfortable with plenty of storage space. It was equipped with a TV with integral VCR (Italian channels only), there was also a radio/cd/mini disc player. The decor was charming with handpainted furniture and a rocking chair. Exposed beams added to the atmosphere. There was no bath but the shower was powerful with plenty of hot water. The towels provided were traditional linen which dried surprisingly well. In an excellent location with two good restaurants within 100 metres we would recommend this hotel for weekenders. Note: there is no lift and our room was on the third floor.
"Nice hotel careless staff"
06/27/05 A TripAdvisor Member
The hotel is very well located and very nicely decorated. Colourful walls and marble bathrooms (not all rooms have bathrooms) not very usual for a one star hotel. This nice decor could be ideal for a good stay if one could forget the staff. At the reception the lady was very nice and helpfull, but when the real problems show up they showed to be of no help. When leaving the hotel we (the receptionist and I) forgot to ask for (to return) my ID. I called the hotel when I noticed that my ID was missing (I was already home). Although they informed me that they had it they never returned it to me. At the Portacavana the client is well treated but once you are out civility is gone. Now I will have to go through all the procedures to get a new one. I don't think I will ever forget the hotel Porrtacavana as long as I will look at my ID.
"Non male per 1 stella, nulla di più!"
02/08/15 Manuel M Masi, Italy
Abbiamo soggiornato per 2 notti in questo hotel...posizione ottima da chi arriva in treno come noi, si trova circa a poco più di 1km dalla stazione percorribile tranquillamente a piedi in 20 minuti (noi l'abbiamo fatto con la bora che soffiava parecchio forte, quindi se c'è tempo normale 10 minuti)! La location e' di puro effetto, stile vecchio pub inglese con disegni colorati in tutti i muri..molto carino!...Per quanto riguarda la parte bagno, nulla da dire, acqua calda pressoché istantanea, doccia un po' piccola ma basta adattarsi...mentre per il riscaldamento nelle stanze nessun problema si sta bene!...la nostra stanza era la numero 4! Gli asciugamani però, non ci sono stati cambiati..questo non va bene! Unica pecca la reception che ha poche ore di apertura e dopo le 17 non si trova più nessuno, ma poco importa perché potete recuperare le vostre chiavi presso un'enoteca nella porta accanto!!..solo che, se nessuno vi spiega come entrare nelle stanze, usando le istruzioni che trovate nella busta che vi lasciano farete un po' fatica a capire come funziona!..in più se vi capita come a noi che le chiavi non aprivano le porte, aiutooo per entrare, fortunatamente una ragazza ci ha sentiti trafficare con le chiavi e ci ha aperto!!..comunque nel complesso personale pronto ad aiutare anche telefonicamente! Prezzi decisamente ottimi!

Il miglior hotel ad una stella che abbia mai visto, centralissimo, arredamento carino, bagno in camera, tv, riscaldamento, pulizia, insomma c'era praticamente tutto per un soggiorno di una notte a prezzi contenuti
