About This Listing
Austrian style comfort near City Center. Parquet floors; spacious and bright; new bathroom. A few minutes walk to the center and 'the rive' with all the comforts: residential neighborhood.
Carbonella, our cat, and my wife and I host you in Austrian style comfort. Parquet floors; spacious and bright; new bathroom. A few minutes walk to the center and 'the rive' with all the comforts: residential neighborhood; buses just around the corner; free internet, matrimonial bed; super quiet room!. There is just one bathroom down the hallway from the room, to share with us. The kitchen is not available for use but you can leave a few things in the refrigerator. We don't offer breakfast but you can use the kitchen and refrigerator for your breakfast things and we provide the coffee and tea!
And yes, there is our lovely cat, queen of the house, so no pets- sorry.
Parking is easy and free...often spaces just in front of the house!
The apartment is not far away from the railway station (20-30 minutes walk) or 5-10 minutes by bus. Trieste is a nice option if you want to make a stop overnight on your way to Slovenia or Croatia.
There is a cozy park a few blocks away with basketball, 'calcetto' and benches amidst the greenery. Five minutes away is a nice pedestrian zone with the historic cinema Ariston, bars and a pizzeria with a panoramic view of the bay. A supermarket is just up the street.
Like to swim? Besides the sea being a quick bus ride or walk away there is an Olympic indoor/outdoor swimming pool 10 minutes away!
Parlo bene Italiano- benissimo English!
Internet. Washing machine. Hair dryer.
Very quite and residential neighborhood but just minutes away form the city center. There is a small pedestrian zone around the corner with a great view of the bay and several bars, a movie house and a pizzeria.
In front of the house is the number 15 bus which leaves you a few blocks from the station. Down the hill you can catch the number 8 bus which takes you directly there. Also the number 9 is there which takes you to the other side of the city....to the public gardens, for example.
Other Things to Note
The bathroom is not in the room and is shared with us.
No smoking - period. The kitchen is not available for use. You are welcome to the smoke on the balcony. :) We are vegetarians. :)
We had a very pleasant stay at Eleonora's & Gary's. They were very helpful and nice, we got a lot of insider tips and the room was very clean, like the rest of the apartment. We were offered coffee and breakfast which was very nice.We really felt at home and would recommend these hosts to anyone!
Wir kamen später als erwartet in T
riest an. Dies war für Gary überhaupt kein Problem und er hat uns sehr freundlich empfangen. Das Zimmer als auch die ganze Wohnung waren sehr sauber und gepflegt. Es gab auch kein Problem bei der gemeinschaftlichen Benützung des Badezimmers. Auch fanden wir direkt vor dem Haus einen gratis Parkplatz...das war wirklich super. Wir können uns nur herzlich bei Gary für die netten 3 Nächte bedanken und würden dieses Zimmer in Triest (tolle Lage) jedem weiterempfehlen!!
We had a really nice stay at Garys place. The location was really convient and the flat really beautiful. Exactly our taste :) Gary, his girlfriend Eleanora and their big cat have been nice and welcoming although we arrived 2 hours late (we called!)
We recommend a nice short escape from reality in trieste and at their place!
Thanks a lot,
Susanne and Arthur
Io e il mio ragazzo siamo stati a Trieste un paio di giorni. La casa di Gary è molto bella ed accogliente. La posizione è comodissima per visitare la città ed è stato molto facile trovare parcheggio nei pressi. Vivamente consigliato.
Garry and his wife were lovely and helpful! Carbonella (the cat) was just cute and extraordinary. The apartment is very nice, clean and its really quiet. Everything was perfect except the weather conditions. It was bora (strong winds), so it was very cold outside and in the buidlings as well. The heating systems in Italy are not the same as in Austria, so be prepared for that. But Garry tried his best with the pellets oven in their corridor. I totally recommend the place and would love to spend some more time someday.
perfect weather. perfect town. perfect flat. perfect room. perfect breakfast. perfect fat cat.
are Gary and Eleonora perfect? we don't now, but they are very nice.
