Why We Love This Hotel
- Understated boutique hotel designed by Terence Conran
- Quiet location within walking distance of St. Stephen’s Cathedral
- Sample upscale Austro-Italian cuisine at popular Collio, recommended by Lonely Planet
- Rooms come with iMacs for TVs and free Wi-Fi
In the days of horse-drawn carriages, the building was a staging post en route to the Italian port city of Trieste, and many of its original features remain, including the rustic vaulted ceiling in the old stables. Today, the hotel has a subdued nautical theme, with porthole-like windows in the bedrooms, and bannisters that mimic the handrails on cruise liners.
Otherwise, the rooms are very hip-minimalist, with iMacs for TVs that make browsing the Internet easy, with free Wi-Fi provided. Sleek wood paneling and carpeted floors add a touch of luxury, and kettles with a selection of teas are available (on request). Choose a room on one of the higher floors or at the rear, as noisy trams operate along the main road to the front.
Don’t miss Collio, the hotel’s Austro-Italian restaurant, where even the cutlery was chosen by Conran himself. The Venetian-influenced menu changes seasonally and, as Lonely Planet says, "the food lives up to the top-class design".
Outside, there is a Mediterranean garden terrace, planted with olive trees and fragrant rosemary (open year-round, 8 am-11 pm; closed Sundays). It’s very popular and booking in advance is recommended. There’s also a glamorous bar with secluded leather booths (open evenings only) and a fitness center and sauna.
