Very disappointing!!

  • 3 of 5

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!

Owner's Response: 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!!

the apartment is even better in person

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is even bigger, better and brighter in person. Absolutely wonderful. Location is excellent within walking distance to everything and the sea is a street over. Piazza Unita is a 2 minute walk and there are supermarkets and restaurants all around the apartment. Valentina, the owner was not only extremely friendly and welcoming but full of information that was very useful. The apartment comes with many home comforts. Our stay was the best of our trip in Italy And we will be booking this apartment again for our next visit. I would recommend this apartment to everyone! Thank you and amazing!!! Xx ci vediamo.

"The Apartment is perfect. It is located in the center (1 min from the main square), it is beautiful and the landlady very helpful. She even provided us with umbrellas which is crucial in Triest! Couldn''t be better."

  • 5 of 5

"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Trieste. The photos of the apartment do not do it justice, it is beautiful inside, is so much bigger than the pictures show and is in an amazing location, right in the centre of town. We found the apartment clean, beautifully presented and had everything we needed for our stay.

We were met by the owners friend who was really helpful and gave us a really good idea of things to do and see. The location in town is seconds away from amazing eateries and the town square.

For a few days in Trieste I would thoroughly recommend staying here. Thank you so much, your apartment made our holiday."

  • 5 of 5

"The apartment was beyond our expectations. It was close to or within walking distance of all the major tourist spots. 2 minute walk to the sea. Supermarket etc was a stones throw away.

Gorgeously furnished and equipped with everything you need.

The owner was extremely friendly and gave us lots of advice on places to eat, things to do etc etc, nothing seemed to be too much trouble.

I would highly recommend this little gem if you want to experience a little piece of Trieste hospitality.

I can''t say enough about it!! It was fantastic!!"
