There are also shared taxis (the price largely depends on when you reserve them, if weeks in advance it might be 20 Euros - up to 100 Eur): Goopti, ScienceBus. They typically run to Trieste train station but for a small extra they can take you closer to your hotel.

Most of the hotels in the suggested list are at walking distance from the train station. Those located in Piazza Unita' d'Italia (Gran Duchi d'Aosta and Savoia Excelsior Palace) can be reached by local bus (line 8) or taxi. Taxis can be hailed from outside the station. (Note: each piece of luggage is charged and taxi fares are higher at night and on holidays).
