We spent two nights here to explore the city. The hotel is a block into the Old City, charming (but you enter through the Hotel Urban Design, as no taxi can fit in the narrow street that is before the James Joyce! Simple, clean; very helpful front desk staff, it appears that

We were only here for night, arriving late from Trieste Airport en route to Slovenia Coast. Our rooms were simple, straight forward and very clean. The air con and shower worked efficiently, the windows blocked out virtually all the loud street noise and the beds were very

We spent 8 days here in March 2018. We’d been before and were very positively disposed towards the establishment. Nothing has changed. Super friendly staff over at the Urban Design desk which looks after the servicing and maintenance of HJJ. Flexible and always attentive to

Sure... that was our concern too - but no problem. The hotel has a couple of short stay spots out front for checking-in and luggage drop-off etc. They offer an expensive valet service, but no need. There is an ultra-modern underground multistorey less than 200m past the hotel. Prices are reasonable for the area, with 10% discount with a hotel offered by the hotel. Pay on exit. Auto machines, but staffed 24hrs too so you can get the discount.

"Lower level rooms pick up more street noise."
"top floor if you want quiet room"
"Rooms on the street are noisier."
"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."
US$73 - US$103 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
