Star rating:
3 star hotel

4.3

Ethnic decor details make this central inn an exotic change from trad Venetian hotels.

If the Venetian hotel norm of brocade swags and Murano glass chandeliers doesn’t appeal (and they can pall when you’ve seen as many of them as I have) the nine-room Novecento provides a welcome alternative, with its Moroccan-influenced décor and vaguely exotic air.

Location

Perfectly located between St Mark’s and the Accademia bridge, the Novecento is slightly off the tourist trail in a quiet alleyway.

Bedrooms

Each of the nine rooms is individually decorated, with an attractive mix of Oriental and Mediterranean furniture and fittings, and mainly earthy colours on walls and in fabrics.

Public areas

Kilims dot colour around the polished wooden floors, while furniture from Indonesia and fabrics from Pakistan adorn the public spaces and bedrooms. There’s a cosy reading room, and a little walled garden. Art exhibitions are often held here.

Eating and drinking

A generous breakfast is served in the garden whenever possible.

Leisure facilities

Guests have access to the gym (extra charge) at the Flora, another hotel nearby owned by the same family.

Service

The Romanelli family have run hotels in Venice for over four decades and their experience shows in the relaxed, professional, friendly way guests here are treated.

Who stays there

With its ethnic décor and laid-back friendliness, the Novecento appeals to a young-ish crowd of culture-seekers. It’s a lovely hideaway for couples on romantic breaks.
