Lonely Planet review
There's been a hotel of sorts on this prime site since Roman times, and the Duchi remains Trieste's grand dame. Public spaces are hushed and intimate, and the rooms are opulently traditional – the way repeat visitors like them. The bathrooms might be a tad frumpy for some five-star tastes, but the moody basement pool is a good trade-off.
Our independent authors have visited Grand Hotel Duchi d'Aosta and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Trieste.
