Urban Hotel Design Trieste

This stylish modern hotel is right in the centre of Trieste

Within a short walk of Trieste’s impressive main square, Piazza dell’Unità d’Italia, the Urban Hotel Design offers comfort, contemporary design and the latest technology.
The hotel has a predominantly white décor with splashes of colour provided by pieces of furniture and examples of modern art. But the overall effect is comfortable and practical and the hotel has all the facilities guests need for a pleasant stay.
Carpet leads to the 
Urban Hotel Design.
Rooms at the four-star Urban Hotel Design all have satellite television, wi fi and a minibar. The bathrooms are smart, modern and well equipped.
An excellent buffet breakfast is served in the ground floor breakfast room.
The Urban Hotel Design has been converted from a building constructed over first century Roman ruins. A large glass panel in the floor of the breakfast room provides guests with a fascinating glimpse of the original Roman street below and a section of the wall of the Roman harbour.
Although in the historic heart of Trieste, the hotel is able to offer guests a number of options for car parking.
Editor’s note: “It was lovely to be able to leave the hotel and walk straight into the magnificent Piazza dell’Unita d’Italia that opens out on to the sea front. The Urban Hotel Design is in a truly wonderful location.”

Why stay at the Urban Hotel Design in Trieste

What to see in Trieste

Stroll along the sea front and sample one of Trieste’s excellent fish restaurants, or visit one of the typical coffee houses that date back to the Hapsburg era such as Caffe Tommaseo, the oldest café in Trieste.
Linger at a table outside one of the bars at the side of Canal Grande, an inlet with moorings for small crafts that is reminiscent of the Grand Canal in Venice.
Find out why Irish writer James Joyce enjoyed living in Trieste for so many years by visiting the Museo Joyce e Svevo, or what was believed to have been his favourite bar, Caffe Pirona.


The Urban Hotel Design is located in Androna Chiusa at number 4, close to Piazza dell’Unità d’Italia and Via del Teatro Romano. It is within walking distance of the railway station and bus station in Piazza Libertà from where you can get a bus to Ronchi dei Legionari, the nearest airport.

Restaurant recommendation:

Marinato in Riva Nazario Sauro is a short walk from the Urban Hotel Design through the Piazza dell’Unità d’Italia and along the sea front.
Inside Marinato Pizzeria
The atmosphere is similar to that of a smart pizzeria in Naples but along with the excellent pizza list, fresh local fish and seafood are also on the menu.
The young staff are friendly and efficient and the food is of high quality but at reasonable prices.
Try a jug of the excellent Friulian Tocai with your meal.
Marinato is open lunchtimes and evenings Monday to Friday and evenings only on Saturday and Sunday.

Local specialities: In Trieste you will find restaurants serving traditional Italian, Friulian, Slovenian, Hungarian and Austrian dishes reflecting the colourful history of the city and the legacy left by its former rulers.
Try jota, a bean, potato and sauerkraut soup or kaiserknodel, dumplings with cheese, ham and parsley.

Local wines: Friuli-Venezia Giulia , the region in which Trieste is situated, is well-known for producing high-quality white wines. Look out for Tocai Friulano sometimes just labelled Friulano.

Shopping: Trieste has many top fashion shops in Corso Italia and Via Carducci.
The most famous product to take home with you is prosciutto di San Daniele, a delicious Friulian ham, similar, although some would say superior to, Parma ham.
