In Trieste with love
If you like the flair of an Apartment in an old house in the middle of Trieste you will love it as I did. A few minutes to walk to Piazza Unità d'Italia, still very quiet. Valentina is a great host. I will come back soon.
Very large, amazing location
Clean and large. Amazing location. Walking distance to everywhere, Piazza UNITA, SAN Giusto, etc. Street parking can be found and pay lot close by. Great host, Valentina’s communication was excellent.
For anyone who wants to feel the spirit of Trieste
First, the location is perfect, only 3 minutes waking to Piazza Unita. House is old, from the beginning of the XX sanctuary, which is a special experience to someone who understand the spirit of the town. The facade is renovated, but the entrance and stairs are not. The elevator is new. The suit is very big, cline, interesting decorated (mix of modern furniture and pieces of old one), has all you need for temporary stay. Sam parts of the interior is old, such as parquet in living room and bedrooms, stone in bathroom and entrance, but that is charming. Wi- fi is good. I can recommend this suite.
We had booked this apartment because of the excellent reviews. However the five stars are definitely not warranted in our opinion. 3 at the most. Here are the reasons:
The apartment is well located and very spacious but very poorly furnished and equipped and it was not very clean.
There is only half a kitchen: it has a beautiful gas stove which can be seen in the photos but there are no counter tops or cupboards in the kitchen except for a board across the washing machine and the dishwasher ( very very noisy!). There are NO cupboards in the kitchen! In a small pantry-like room next to it, is a cupboard where you have to get the dishes - a mix of old mis-matched dishes- and some supplies. Only one wine glass!
There is no place to even put a spoon next to the stove.
The sink is an old stone trough. You cannot wash dishes in it since it is shallow and there is no basin or a stopper. The drain stinks of sewer in the morning.
The livingroom is humungous, but totally bare except for an older white vinyl sofa and an Ikea shelf for the TV. and a small side table. No picture on any of the walls in the whole place! ( Actually there are two empty picture frames!) The floor needs refinishing. There are broken parts and it is dirty.
The master bedroom has no closet nor any dresser. You have to keep your clothes in the suitcase. The duvets in both bedrooms have no covers, just a white sheet. Not very hygienic!
The blind on the window was torn and filthy.
The bathroom shower holder is broken, hand-held only. The floor is partly rough stone and tile but there is no bath mat.
There is no internet wifi.
We only ended up staying because a kind neighbour hooked us up to their wifi and helped us in other ways and because our friends are 80 years old and could not face a move.
This place has lots of potential but it is shabby and is lacking of true care and comfort!
Maybe the owner has been resting on their laurels too long.
Also, the photos for the apartment are from two different apartments. It is hard to tell which belongs to which. The “other” apartment seems to have a nice kitchen.
When we asked about how to get some heat —it was the end of October and cold—-
Valentina did send someone but told us that we could not turn the heat above 2. A 2 setting is not even luke warm!
I' m so SORRY for these guests!
I m SORRY because in my opinion they haven t red the advertisement and haven t looked at the pictures before booking!!! (I have 2 apartments and pictures are divided in apartment 1 and apartment 2 ) not so difficult I suppose.
I m SORRY because from the beginning they started to complain
( no second bathroom , no soft mattress, normal Italian beds not big enough for them,...)
I m SORRY because I don t have wifi ( never said il to have it)
I m SORRY because instead of buying an Internet card (300 mt from the apartment) they preferred to asked my neighbor ( without pay for it, it s even better to have it for free )
I m SORRY because my guests decided to touch and touch again my boiler trying to turn heating on without asking and putting down water level, so I asked them not to turn it more than 2 level ( otherwise I had to call an hydraulic), when they have gone temperature inside was 28 degrees!!! Don t so cold I suppose...
I m SORRY because I don t like counter tops
I m SORRY because my dish machine and wash machine are noisy
I m SORRY for my furniture not enough luxurious for my guests ( my tv table it s not ikea! )
I m SORRY because I don t have pictures on my walls but only frames ( I haven t miss them, I wanted this !)
I m SORRY that my guests haven t appreciated my original 1800 s floor: I know that it s not perfect but it has 200 years! This is the beauty !!!
I m also SORRY for my old stoned sink: all in my house is old original, this is the beauty of my house!!!
I m SORRY that my guests decided to write this horrible note and then decided to stay 2 nights more in such a terrible and uncomfortable house!!
Pasqua a Trieste
Appartamento elegante, spazioso, pulito, comodo e luminoso ( con ben 14 finestre, da 2 delle quali si vede il porto e il mare ); silenzioso e tranquillo, nonostante sia in centro, a pochi passi dalla bella piazza unità d'italia.
Un po' difficoltoso trovare posto per la macchina in zona, bisogna utilizzare necessariamente i parcheggi del porto.
à quelques minutes à pied de la gare centrale de Trieste, des taxis et des ferries à moins de 100 mètres!
Restaurants typiques dans les environs immédiats mais aussi cuisine internationale et pizzerias
