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... More

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... More

A clean,beautiful and confortable room.The staff was very friendly and helpful with restaurant suggestions and parking advice. We were late for breakfast and they directed us to their sister hotel, Urban Design Hotel, just next door where we had a delicious... More

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... More

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.... More

My wife and I stayed 3 nights (B&B) before going on to Venice. The hotel was small but its location was excellent - right in the centre of the city in the historic quarter. The 'James Joyce Hotel' and the 'Hotel Urban Design' next door appear to be just one hotel. Reception was in the Urban and nobody minded whether... More

The hotel is located a short walk away from the central Piazza Unita’ down a small alleyway (of which most of the buildings appear to be owned by the small hotel group that runs the James Joyce) Slightly bizarre that you need to check-in at the Urban Design hotel, on the opposite side of the alleyway to the James Joyce...
