I originally booked this hotel because we planned to arrive from Croatia by bus, and it is just a block from the bus station. It turned out to be a reasonably-priced, good place to stay for a tour of Trieste. We were especially impressed with the helpfulness of the staff. The room that was first assigned to us on arrival smelled of smoke, and we asked if we could be moved. The desk clerk understood, and moved us to an even larger room that did not suffer from smoke pollution, as is so common in Europe. Other staff members recommended some good restaurants and arranged our early morning trip to the airport. All in all, a good experience.
Hotel Riviera is a gorgeous old fashioned, elegant hotel in a panoramic location. The rooms are bright and cheerful and spacious with a stunning view of the gulf of Trieste and the turrets of the Hapsburg's Castle Miramare in the distance. Meals are served on the terrace overlooking the sea. The hotel has a terrace or lido which you can access by lift and enjoy a sun lounger and swim in the Adriatic which is carefully supervised by lifeguards.

"Nice small hotel with a good breakfast and big roo"
Stayed here for a night as had a stop over in Trieste for a flight. Hotel staff recommended good local restaurants to go. Well placed for restaurants and walking to the centre. We got the bus to the airport and this was about a 5 minute walk from the bus station.
"Clean, modern hotel good location for bus travel"
Stayed here for one night in Aug 2012, enroute between flying into Trieste and travelling by bus down to Croatia. Hotel was perfect for our needs - handy for the bus station (5 mins walk, if that - and signposted); 15 minute flat easy walk to the main Piazza with restaurants on the way for a meal out in the evening. Room wasn't huge and there was no view, but very comfortable and modern, with an impressive walk-in wardrobe (shame we only had backpacks so nothing to unpack!). Bathroom was very modern and clean too. Would definitely stay here again if just passing through.
These are apartments that are run by the hotel across the street. Big bathroom - though still shower only, bedroom and kitchen/dining room. Full size refrigerator. Power driven by key card - but unusually air con stayed working without key card, so that was very nice. Very comfortable place to stay - take out Chinese and gelato places right downstairs! Easy to get around by bus or taxi or walking.
