Hotel Trieste, Verona

August 11, 2015

Hotel TriesteHotel Trieste in Verona was the funkiest hotel I have ever stayed at, and it was awesome! I usually don’t get too excited about a hotel unless it is luxurious or has a special feature. This hotel was the exception to that. I picked it based on the great reviews on Trip Advisor; its fabulous location and the cool photos from other guests. I was not disappointed.

Before I even booked with them, they had impressed me. Since I was driving, I knew I needed a hotel with parking and preferred an actual parking lot and not valet. I emailed them before booking to confirm they had parking. They emailed me back within an hour or less, I can’t remember. They had parking, and it was underground and video monitored. I confirmed the video monitoring when I arrived because I could see behind the front desk. The video monitor was also used to show me how to enter the hotel from the garage. Unfortunately, their elevator had stopped working early that evening and offered to help me from the garage with my luggage. The hotel desk clerk gave me my set of keys and offered me a map with his must see sites circled along with the restaurant I mentioned in yesterday’s post. He also ran my bag upstairs as it was on the third floor. The lobby was also impressive with its fun décor and bar area.Hotel Trieste

According to the hotel website and Trip Advisor this place had air conditioning and I was really looking forward to air conditioning since my friend’s place didn’t have any, just like the rest of Italy! Of course, my version of air conditioning and Italy’s version of air conditioning could be different. Fortunately, this hotel’s air conditioning was great and immediately started cooling the room after I turned it on.

What I didn’t expect was the retro design of the room! When I looked at the website the rooms looked nice, but not like this, so I am assuming a recent renovation had been done. The room was painted a soft pink with brown herringbone carpet. The accent color was green. I loved the carpet! I am not sure why, as it isn’t my style, but it was fun and obviously new as it had no wear or stains on it. The other unexpected thing was not one, but two balconies! I guess when your city is famous for a balcony you have balconies! I didn’t go out because of the heat, and the view wasn’t great, but in the cooler months, this would have been awesome with a glass of wine.

The hotel offered a breakfast in the morning that was similar to other small hotels in Europe, mainly consisting of fruits, pastry, deli meat, and cheese. The night before I had been in a tent near the Verona Area as they were having a regional food tasting. I stumbled upon this by accident. There I had a serving of nectarines like I have never had before! They tasted so good and looked even better, so when I saw them at breakfast, I knew to have those. I think I went back for a second helping too! I highly recommend this hotel for their hospitality, less than a five-minute walk to the historic center, great rooms, and if you are there in summer the air conditioning and the nectarines!

    This is a pretty cute hotel. The decor is very attractive. Like you’ve mentioned, one thing about traveling through Europe is the surprise of an air conditioned room. I was in Prague last summer and was rudely wakened by the sweltering heat.

    How fun! I love the rooms and really…air conditioning is all that matters, especially when you are traveling. We’ve really wanted to go back to Italy so we will definitely have to check out this hotel when we decide to make a trip back there. So fun!

    Funky fun hotels are the BEST. I wish I could decorate that way but I’ll settle for a night in a beautiful room!

      Me too. I really appreciate them helping me with my luggage when I know it probably doesn’t usually do that.
