The old stonework, beams, furnishings take you back into time. The property is newly renovated very well maintained and exceptionally clean. The service was excellent, we arrived late in the evening and asked if they could provide breakfast food for the following morning, we woke up to an amazing spread of Italian meats, cheese, bakery goods, cereals, etc. Would highly recommend staying and would return if every in that part of Italy again. Thank you Gabriella and your staff for making our stay memorable!

You don’t need to drive as it only takes about 12 minutes to walk to the centre of the city, (although return by bus does avoid the steep walk). The apartment is well equipped and air conditioning make it a very comfortable place to be, both - day and night. The street is quiet and has all necessary shops right on its doorstep. Lovely cafe and bakery (open at 8.00), local chemist and a small supermarket as well as a few other very useful shops, cafes and bars - all within minutes - very helpful when eating in. But you don’t need to do that! Hundreds of local cafes and restaurants provide excellent value for money and a great place to socialise and enjoy the scenery. Sabrina was very helpful, thoughtful and welcoming. We were very well looked after indeed! We would love to return to wonderful Trieste and of course we would certainly stay at Casa Combi again. Thanks Sabrina!
