A good small pension.

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 20, 2009

Hotel Alabarda is a simple pension situated on the third floor of an old building. There is a small elevator to go up there.

My room had simple furniture, a comfortable bed and a quite large bathroom (with shower) en suite.

The breakfast which was buffet style consisted in bread, package sweets, cheese, ham, hard boiled eggs, yoghurt, bread and jam. There was a machine for coffee, cappuccino, hot chocolate and tea. Coffee was good.

Unique Quality: The hotel is located around 15 minutes from the train station and the city center.

Complimentary internet for 30 minutes every day. You can have a 24 hours internet pass for the price of 1 euro.

The personnel was very kind.

cute, cheap, central and friendly

Hi everyone

For cheap and friendly accommodation in Trieste - this is the place to go. Only stayed for one night but the people were great, rooms were spotless and very spacious and although it was a bit noisy in our room at night with people walking up and down the stairs, it was a lovely hotel experience after somewhat dodgy 80s dive in Croatia. Also has really cheap Internet (only one computer but it's free if you only use it for 15 minutes) plus nice little touches like a communcal bookshelf and cute guestbooks.

Backpackers delight

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 21, 2004

Sent here via "Banjo"'s recommendation I perhaps expected more than I got.

Unique Quality: Firstly I came to the realization that my Renault would not be parked out the front. Indeed, about five blocks away was the closest I could hope for after I dropped my bags off.
Having placed them behind the front door I drove off and luckily found the way in to the carpark at the first attempt.
Returning to the Alabarda I ascended to the relevant floor in the bordello-red lift wherein one passenger is comfortable, two is cosy and three obscene.
The room was typical backpacker with sparse furnishings, a TV of the smallest-screen type abutting the ceiling in one corner and a remote control with a dodgy back panel that wanted to fall off whenever it was operated. The washbasin seemed lonely on the wall opposite the bed.
The community bathrooms were spacious and clean and there was often someone in attendance nearby, thus giving a feeling of security.
The breakfast was passable and overall it would suit someone seeking basic accommodation in the city. 5 star it is not.

One Star Delight

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 12, 2004

I'm amazed that Hotel Alabarda is only a one star hotel. I don't understand why. It has everything I look for in an inexpensive accommodation. The bathroom was very good, the bed very comfortable, the room very clean, and the breakfast was great. The staff was friendly and helpful. Although it's on the second floor, there was an elevator.

Unique Quality: The hotel was easily walking distance from the train station, if you had an idea where you were going! I arrived at midnight and had no clue so took a short taxi ride.

Best Bet For Cheap Accommodation

by written on March 25, 2004

This place was booked solid when I tried to get a room. But, the owner was nice enough to show me a room of people that hadn't yet arrived, so as to rub it in that I had to go to a more expensive hotel down the road. This place has singles for 48 Euro (less without W/C) and doubles for 68 ( without W/C). The rooms were nice, small, but completely adequate. With Trieste having very little cheap hotels or hostels and this place being right in the middle of central Trieste, it’s your best bet for good accommodation.

Pension Alabarda

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 18, 2003

Pension Alabarda is a 10 minute walk from the train/bus station. It is a pension but has triple rooms for 59 euro, 44 euro for a double. This includes breakfast. Its clean and one of the best central budget places to stay. The bird on reception is gorgeous too!

Nice, clean and quiet

Looks normal from outside, but once you're there, you find yourself in a nice clean environement, and it's as if you have the hotel to yourself. Staff very helpful and friendly.

Unique Quality: No outstanding charactecteristics of any high star hotel. It is just clean and quiet.

Directions: Not far from the railway staion

HOTEL

by written on December 4, 2002

This hotel is perfectly in the centre of Trieste.Starting from the railway station you get there in 5 minutes. It is next to wherever you want to go

Unique Quality: There are two kinds of room, with or without the bathroom. Choosing that one without bathroom the price is € 33,00 : single room and € 48,00 :a double-room. Instead, the room with bathroom is € 46,00 :single room and € 66,00 :the duble one

en-suite double/twin room €62; double/twin room without bathroom €39-44.

Unique Quality: The lodging is near to Piazza Della Liberta, in fact, less than a five minute walk. This is where the bus from Ronchi airport terminates, and also houses the train station - meaning it has excellent transport links to explore both Trieste and the surrounding areas. The Hotel is also very near to the centre - Piazza Unita' D'Italia & Riva D Mandracchio (The costal part). The Hotel is clean and spacious, an ideal base for touring the area - perfect as you won't want to spend too much time indoors!

I stayed in a non-en suite bedroom, and found that there were three separate bathrooms, all with sink, toilet, bidet and shower.

Directions: 3rd Floor, Via Valdirivo, 22 (it's in this fabulous picture of Trieste somewhere! - taken from near the Castle)
