Travellers' Choice
Hotel James Joyce welcomes you to the most historic district of Trieste, in the Cavana pedestrian area 250 metres from the main square Piazza Unita d'Italia. Trieste's Cruise Terminal and Congress Centre are also nearby. Built in 1770, this is one of the most characteristic hotels in town. You have free Wi-Fi access in common areas, and a generous buffet breakfast is served daily. You are just a short walk from the major attractions and lots of typical restaurants; ask the hotel staff for their expert recommendations.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great central location with simple but superbly clean rooms with extremely comfortable beds. Very friendly and helpful staff. Fantastic find, I highly recommend it and if and when I return to Trieste I will definitely go there again. I would say it has the spirit of Trieste, clean, pleasant and with nice people. Thanks Hotel James Joyce.

Stayed for two nights in September. it's not a bad place, but rooms are small and basic - more of a two star hotel with four star prices. We stayed in the double on the top floor, supposedly their best room: small and stuffy. The air condition was switched off for the season; upon our complaint (the party noise from the small street below made it impossible to open the windows at night), the aircon was switched on by friendly staff, but made more noise than difference in temperature. personal comment: when we had to leave a day early due to a family issue, the greedy owner insisted on imposing a one night penalty, using a particularly idiotic argument, namely that his (own) website didn't allow him any flexibility on conditions. so, if you prefer genuine hospitality to profit maximization, take your business elsewhere, otherwise it's an OK place to overnight.

Because of our broken car we had to extend our stay in town. Following our basic instincts we ended up here, in the most cheerful hostel I ever visited. Our small room is just suited with every possible expectations (spotlessly clean, fine design, historical center, etc., almost forgot: great breakfast), but the most suggestive and delightful element is the staff itself! Calmly helpful, full of heart - and a very, very fine sense of humor. Home is at home, but sometimes it can also be the James Joyce Hotel - thank you!

Everything about our stay here was perfect. We received a warm, friendly greeting with advice about places to visit. Our room was quiet, modern and stylish, the bathroom a good size and spotlessly clean. It's located about two or three minutes walk from the main piazza in Trieste, so you can walk everywhere. The staff were all welcoming and polite. I would recommend it to anyone. In fact, it's almost worth going to Trieste just to stay here!

Comfy room, very clean. Nothing over fancy but all in good repair and clean. Breakfast had a good selection and coffee was made to order. All the staff were friendly and welcoming. Location very near to Piazza Unita and lots of nice places to eat close by.
