This hotel is operated by the Urban Design hotel which is just across the alley from the door of the James Joyce. It is on a small alley that winds back in an attractive way for a street just off the Piazza d'Unida de Italia (I know I have misspelled that a bit). So the location is about as central...

If you want a clean, tidy hotel in the center of Trieste, but you don't care about luxury? Then this is your hotel. The price was an excellent value and I was not one bit disappointed. I was on the 2nd floor and you can hear the 'party' outside- but I love it and cracked my window open to hear...

Hotel James Joyce offers clean, comfortable rooms a few minutes walk from Piazza Unità d'Italia and the seafront. The tariff in February was a reasonable €50 per night. Generous breakfast fare is provided across the alley in the Urban Design Hotel which also acts as reception for the much smaller James Joyce (Urban Design is a modern conversion of an...

Wonderful location not far from the Adriatic Sea, it is tucked away in a small side-street that assures a quiet night's rest! The hotel is close to several bus lines, but is also reasonable close to various locations that may be of interest to the walking tourist. The rooms were very clean, the staff courteous and helpful. The breakfasts were...

Arriving after a long flight from Australia the efficient check-in, cosy room & quiet location were very welcome. Our room was very clean and provided with everything we required. The hotel is perfectly located, close to all that we wanted to see. The only thing that made things difficult was that the check-in was not at the Hotel James Joyce...

Great Hotel in a beautiful old Italian building in the middle of town - efficient and helpful staff who speak excellent English - large bedroom and beautiful bathroom and all very clean and free WIFI which is always helpful- Adequate continental breakfast with excellent coffee although I thought the small breakfast room could use some low background (classical) music as...

We stayed just one night in the James Joyce hotel as a stop over en route to Pula in Croatia. The hotel is in a good location, not far from the main square and near cafes and restaurants. There is a sign clearly indicating that check -in is in the hotel Urban Design right opposite the James Joyce Hotel. We...

We stayed at Hotel James Joyce for two nights during our visit to northern Italy and the Balkans. The room was clean and pleasant, the staff was very helpful, and I really liked the location, tucked away in a narrow side street just a few steps from the Piazza dell' Unita d'Italia. Highly recommended!

Staff could not have been more pleasant and helpful. Very outstanding service and the breakfast was wonderful. We stayed a Saturday and a Sunday night. Breakfast on Sunday morning was in the small breakfast room of the James Joyce facility. Because we ate late we were all alone in there with the cheerful attendant who was sweet, friendly and helpful....

“Not sure whether there are any distinctions. Our window was on an air shaft but I do not think that any rooms have a view.”

“We were in 501. Lift goes to four and a flight of windy steps takes you to 5. Views over roofs of Trieste! Maybe make sure curtains are closed as not sure whether or now it's overlooked but nevertheless, a pleasant room.”
