The Svevo and Joyce guest house is really a gem if you are in Trieste. The location is optimal, next to the sea front and very close to the city centre, and the staff is helpful, friendly and attentive and the setting of the place give it a really nice homey feeling. You will be left with good memories and... More

We stood with Giulia and Sandro for two nights, and we were absolutely happy. The place is lovely, already the house. You enter into the entrance hall of the building and you're taken back 100 years, back to Habsburgian times. The B&B is located on the 4th floor, in a large apartment, which has been nicely renovated, yet it kept... More

Svevo & Joyce is lovely Bed & Breakfast, which we recommend very highly. The location is slightly off the city center in a quiet neighborhood but close enough to walk everywhere you need to. There is a bus from the Central Station (Nr.8), but we walked from there to the B&B along the sea-shore which is quite beautiful. Svevo &... More

We found this place by accident and must say it is one of the most stylish and bohème places we have ever stayed at. Feels very much like living in the 20's in Paris. Hemmingway style! Roomes are lovely decorated, staff ist ultra friendly, bathrooms are very clean and the location ist very good (only a few minutes walk to... More

We had a wonderful time staying at Svevo & Joyce, the B&B is situated a stones throw from the waterfront in the heart of the old city, in a queit side street where we were able to park easily. The building itself is a fantastic example of an early 1900 building that makes the Trieste famous, the B&B itself is... More

As much surprised as I was about arriving at the B&B and not having our room or reservations on file. the proprietors did try their best to accommodate us elsewhere. Was it an inconvenience? Big time! Did they try to absolve themselves of any responsibility? Yes, of course. That was probably the only thing that really irked us about the... More

We are very sorry for your waisted time but these things do not happen every day and obviously we had to be sure about all that's why we asked you about the email and the advanced payment that as metter of fact we had lost track of. We tried to resolve this overbooking in the best way we could calling... More

Old building built around 1910 so the floors do creak a bit haha. Sandro and giulia have done wonders with this place in terms of Reno and deco. We had a sweet room with no ac but not hot, a sizable private bathroom but you had to step outside the room for it. the owners are friendly and make the... More

We stayed at Svevo and Joyce in June. I was expecting it to be nice due to all the great reviews I read, however it wasn't until my husband and I arrived that we realized what a great place we booked at. The room is extremely clean. We had the room with the bathroom inside it. I highly recommend that.... More

For the price we paid we could have go a nice hotel. So, why stay at a B&B? Basically because hotels all look alike, while this place will stick in the memory, from the old lift up the building, the photos on the wall, to the big open windows. So, in that sense it is worth it. However, as with... More
