Great little hotel! This is great small hotel, easy to reach from Trieste airport or Trieste town (local bus stop not even 1min away). We stayed in the large recently renovated Sissi room. New fantastic bathroom. Great restaurant with nice terrace and also very good breakfast!

Astonishingly good food I'm glad I hadn't read the negative reviews before having dinner at Gaudemus because, had I done so, I would have missed a gastronomic high point. The tasting menu was amazing---every dish was perfection and testified that we were in the hands of a truly talented chef. We had the kind of superb dining experience you remember for a long time. Wish we still lived in Duino so we could make Gaudemus a regular haunt.

Lovely little hotel I was booked here as the hotel I booked got overbooked and walked me. It was a nice surprise. The room was small but cosy and the bathroom really nice and elegant. The restaurant was excellent for dinner. Breakfast was rich and tasty. The hotel is close to Trieste and Duino, worth a day-trip to both places.
