Boutique Hostel Joyce, Pula
Very Good8.0
Great location next to the Roman triumphal arch.
This not a hostel! You will get your own (although a pretty tiny) room with a private bathroom (toilet and shower). The hotel has an elevator, which is very handy if you have heavy luggage. The room is air conditioned, has a TV, but no refrigerator or microwave. Wifi is included in price and works well. The shower had excellent pressure. Hotel is very well located literally next to the Roman triumphal arch, which is an entrance to the city's central pedestrian area with all the restaurants, shopping, entertainment and sites. Parking in Pula is a nightmare, but the hotel assisted with a private parking spot at a cost of 15 Euro per day. Reception personnel was very helpful and professional. I would stay in this hotel again.

Fantastic find in historic Pula, Croatia!
Boutique Hostel Joyce is a beautiful new hotel inside an old building where the Irish writer James Joyce once taught classes in Pula. It is extremely well located adjacent to one of the cities historic arch gate. Easy walking to all the sights (Forum and Amphitheater) as well as shops, cafes and restaurants. There's a James Joyce bar called Ulysses downstairs with his statue at one of the outdoor tables. Building has an elevator (great for luggage), but no onsite parking due to pedestrian area. All and all, it was a fantastic find and stay!!!

Right where a tourist wants to be - near all the sights and good restaurants. Staff helped us get early morning taxi to airport and open a bottle of wine. Loved the energy
