Novecento Boutique Hotel
Ranked #37 of 385 Hotels in Venice
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 September 2013

This is a very small hotel in an old building, smack in the middle of the San Marcos district. Try to get very specific directions as it's down a tiny street which fronts. The hotel really feels as if one were in old Venice - dark, a bit mysterious, one is almost surprised to find a modern bathroom in their room! The hotel is convenient to many Venetian attractions, all within easy walking distance. The staff are very warm, easy going and friendly, feeling like a sort of family run place. The only amenities are the quaint breakfast in the morning, included in the price (as is Wi-Fi), served in a tiny but charming breakfast room/lounge, with newspapers available and the option to sit in their tiny, enhancing patio, surrounded by old Venetian buildings, quiet - as it's in the back, blue sky, bright sun, and the ringing of local church bells. Cappuccinos are available on request, which for coffee lovers is a real bonus. They also make coffee, teas and cookies available in the afternoons, for the guests who would like a pick me up after hours of sight-seeing. The bathrooms are done with an interesting taste, as if to sort of incorporate the feel of old Venice. The beds are comfortable, and the sheets good quality. Being Venice, if your room faces the front, you might hear passerby, and it is quite dark. If you need more quiet and light, request a room at the back. The narrow street the hotel is on almost seems like an emote alleyway, but actually leads to a dock on the Grand Canal facing the Guggenheim Museum across the water, and with the famous "Ponte dell'Accademia" bridge on the right. There are also another 2 hotels down the same little street. If you want to feel immersed in ancient Venice, and stay right in the middle of everything, this is the place for you. If you want spacious, modern rooms, and a peaceful, quiet neighborhood, you need to stay further afield, in a neighborhood a bit further off from this center. But a nice hotel, with nice staff.
One note, if you book a private water taxi back to the airport with them, you will have to pay with cash only, so go the the bank the day before!

Room Tip: Rooms in the front are darker and can have a bit of street noise if one's windows are open.

Stayed for 3 nights in August 2013. Good location close to vaporetto. Staff were friendly and extremely helpful. The room is not to big (room nr. 6), but acceptable because it's Venice. The bathroom is very nice and modern. No complaints.

We were there in August, the peak season for Venice. So many people, and so crowded, and you immediately feel that Venice is full of tourism, the cafe in San Marco plaza, the Gondora driver, the shop assistants, they are so much used to the millions of tourists, and hardly give you really warm service. But, Novecento is completely different. The lady worked there, Malina, she is a really friendly and helpful from the first moment we entered the hotel, till the last moment when we hurried to catch the water taxi to the airport. The hotel itself is great of course, but her pleasant smile is the most impressive one. Novecento is the small family run boutique hotel, you find the great tast of the owner everywhere, the desk lamp, the paintings, the photographs, the winder, the garden... I love every piece of the hotel. Though there are thousands of museum, church, nice bridges around, you don't want to rush out in the morning, becasue to sit in the garden and have breakfast in Novecento itself is an enjoyment.
And the hotel is located very close to the San Marco Plaza, just 5 mins. walk. and it's just a few meters away from a small pier, transportation is absolutely convenient.
in addition, the restraunt on the west side of the hotel, a Sicilia style one which Malina recommended is great one. the boss seems receive quite some chinese already, as he recommended us somthing which really fit to our stomach, the fresh mussel, the shrimp salad, seafood pasta, etc.
and please note to avoid the sea food restraunt on the east side of the hotel, they are typical tourist like one. As soon as i refused the proposal on a biggest portion of fish BBQ plate, we were no longer in their serice rada system, and the 15% surchage on the menu relief their motivation to provide good service. But this one is what we just pick after a long trip to Burano as it's so close to the hotel.
So great place to stay, very central, but in a very quiet and peaceful lane. highly recommended. i am not sure whether i will have the chance to go to Venice again, if so, Novecento is definitely my first choice.
by the way, they have also another bigger hotel run by the same family, call Hotel Flora which is just few minutes from Novecento, from the brochure, it shows similar elegant and warm style and you may also want to try.

Room Tip: for elderly people, it's better to have room on 1st floor as there is no lift.

Stayed for 3 nights in Jul, 2013. It is exactly the type of hotel I like: small, quiet, easy to find, friendly stuff and easy access to walk around. Nice small garden for breakfast. The room is not very bid, but ok. The only weakness is that the hotel is so mall that it is very difficult to book!

Room Tip: I stayed at Room No. 8 and not a bad choice.

Stayed for 3 nights in July 2013. Good location close to vaporetto.(just a 5min drag of your cases along some streets and accross a couple of bridges) Hotel instructions for directions could be improved as they didnt really match the reality. Staff were friendly and helpful. Agree with some reviews that the place has got charm / is querky but it is pretty dark. Our room(8) was adequate but pretty small. Bed was comfy and A/C was ok in July. While we are there there was building work right in front of the hotel which started up about 8am ish(wasnt a big deal really). Beakfast was pleasant . Overall enjoyed our stay and its in a great location. If you dont like small rooms this maybe wont be for you

Room Tip: Go for the more expensive ones which are a bit bigger

We stayed in this hotel for four nights. The consensus of our party of four was that it was just OK. Most of the rooms that I saw were small and dark, made darker by dark paint colors on the walls and dark antique furniture. I understand the owners want old world charm, but that should not preclude their having some modern conveniences, such as bedside tables with enough space to put a few items rather than tiny antique tables and light colored walls to brighten things up. There was, however, one large and bright room that I saw, with two windows overlooking the pretty courtyard - on the second floor, it is Room #3. Room #2 was also more cheerful than #9 and #7 (both dark and small), had a window in the BR and bath (some of the others only had a window in the BR).
There were many positives to this hotel however, such as Federico at the front desk who was very helpful in customizing our visit to suit our needs, such as what our family might enjoy and restaurants that would cater to our specific food needs. He directed us to out of the way places, which we appreciated.
This hotel has a wonderful location down a quiet little street away from everything, yet central to it all. It is just a half block walk to the water taxi which takes you to the train station.
The breakfast room and back patio are charming with delicious cappuccino and the standard Italian breakfast.

Room Tip: Room #3 on the second floor looked the best, with Room #2 also being nice.

My wife and I stayed at the Novecento for just a night even though we were booked for four. Venice was hot and humid and the air conditioning in the room was either not working, or was inadequate for the requirement. The owner, Heiby Romanelli was incredibly helpful in more than one way: we were moved to a sister Hotel for the second night (Flora) and to an associate Hotel (Saturnia) for the last 2 nights. Venice was in peak season and rooms were hard to come by. Heiby also assisted us a great deal in calling Avis in Avignon (from where we came to Venice) in trying to locate my mobile phone which I had left behind in a rental car. Her attitude was just great, as were the staff's. If only for Heiby, I will recommend Novecento / Flora /Saturnia. Great customer care. Kris Ramachandran
