Very cheap, in the heart of Venice. And so personal, and well decorated, it felt like you were sleeping in a King's bedroom.

Historical Traveler Reviews Locanda Novo Venice
I reserved one night for mid August 2005. The accomodations for a family of six was one very large room (one double, and four twin beds) with shower. The cost for the room was 140 euro ($173) a night which included a very nice breakfast. Free breakfast which was served in room included fresh rolls, croisants, cheese, coffee, juice. The room was beautiful with crystal chandeliers and oil paintings on second floor in 500 year old building. The hotel one of the nicest we had on our trip to Europe
Venice is a small city and everything is probably no more than a 15 minute walk away. There is a good water taxi service which runs along the central canal to all the major sights. The water taxi is about 4-5 blocks from hotel and runs late at night.
We arrived late at night and walked right past the narrow street where the hotel is located. We knew the hotel is about two blocks off a small square but we did not see the small sign on corner. Look for the big Magnon hotel sign at corner of alley.
The staff were very nice, knowledgeable, and helpful. The hotel is recommended by Rick Steves and I fully understand why, I could not have asked for more.
My family with three children stayed here at the beginning of March. Venice was having unusually cold weather then (snow). OUr room was very nice and the children loved the view and the breakfast. Yes, it is a European continental breakfast but the rolls were fresh and good and the coffee and hot chocolate came hot. It was all delivered to our top floor room. It is in a good location, not far from a vaporetto stop and in a less touristy area. It took us about fifteen minuites to stroll down to St. Mark's Plaza. I would not recommend this hotel for anyone unable to walk up or down flights of stairs.
Very nice hotel
My husband and I stayed at the hotel for 3 nights in May. It was spotlessly clean and the staff were very friendly. We had a lovely time. The only thing I should mention is if you stay in one of the rooms in the attic (which we did and they are lovely) the only problem is there are two steep flights of stairs to reach the rooms and are not really suitable for the elderly or people with a pushchair. Apart from that brilliant hotel.
We found a gem!!!
My Family have just stayed for 3 nights in Venice in this fantastic small hotel near the Rialto bridge. We had a family room high in the hotel with the boys in a seperate section of the room (more like a small suite). the staff were extremely helpful, the hotel was spotless and beautifully decorated. With breakfast brought to your room every morning, what luxury at such a bargain price! We only paid 100 euro's / night for the 4 of us! What a bargain! What a gem of a small hotel!!!

I can confirm everything written by the previous reviewer.
I stayed there (probably the same room!) at the beginning of January 2005 with my husband and daughter.
I would definitely go there again.
Quiet, charming, small hotel
We stayed at this small, charming, quiet hotel not far from the Rialto Bridge during Easter holiday 2004 for @ 120 Euros/night double. It is down a narrow alleyway and another hotel across the entrance. We were on the top floor (3rd level I believe) and wood beam ceilings, fabric on the walls, small room but VERY CHARMING. Exceptionally clean hotel and bathroom was very nice, small table beside the bed, elegant bed linens, a sitting chair, a small window that opened up overlooking the alleyway. We heard birds chirping in the morning. Breakfast is delivered to your room and included in the price. You tell the desk clerk the previous night what you would like for breakfast. We had rolls with jam and butter, cheese, hot tea, milk, coffee, croissants. There also is a sitting room one flight up the stairs that is huge and very well decorated with elegant furnishings and light fixtures. The stairs are a bit of a climb. There is a nice coffee shop at the end of the alley and the square is just around the corner and past that you can walk anywhere or catch a vaporetto. This hotel was peaceful and charming and a nice place to come back to after a busy day sightseeing and walking. This is a good hotel to have some peace and quiet. We could leave our window open at night and still sleep soundly.
Excellent Cheap Stylish Hotel
Venice can be a bit pricey especially in the summer. Found this place with a good rate in high season (£70/night for a double room,--------------------). Up a small alley with not much to distinguish it from the front. However, inside is a revelation. Very venetian and the rooms have air con and are vey clean. No restaurant or breakfast room but they bring a breakfast tray to your door each morning! for free! 5 min walk from the rialto bridge and a 5 min walk to a water bus stop. Staff freindly and helpful. Very central and plently of nice cheap restaurants just outside the door. In all, probably the best hotel I have stayed in anywhere for the price.

... assured that what looked like gold all throughout the ceiling was genuine 24 carat gold leaf. Very impressive indeed..
Once we left the palace we lined up to enter the Basilica. We started noticing large puddles forming in different parts of the square and were informed from our guide that since this Piazza was the lowest part of Venice, when the tide rises water comes from underneath and starts to flood the square. Temporary walkways are ...
... t really interest us but Carol saw a beautiful lace cardigan and couldn't resist - I did try to tell her it looked really horrible on her but she brought it anyway. (Seriously it was lovely and so very much Carol!) she would have paid a small fortune for it at home. Back on the ferry and heading home getting close to dinner time we decided to eat on the way home. There is a historical Regatta on here this weekend which could account for the high ...
... tug-a-war, Daniel did the sumo wrestling, Mitch was best abs and I was Miss wet Tshirt.
After dinner I went and put my white T-shirt on and met up with everyone at the bar still chanting my name and everyone buying me drinks. While we were there Emma and I ran into 2 girls we went to school with who were on one of the other tours! Crazy how you can run into people from home on the other side of the world! We all drank and danced on the tables - I was ...
... and I needed to rug up…Mary didn’t think I needed to be soooo rugged up….but I took off anyway. Half way to G&J’s hotel I turned around and came back home, sweating like a pig... I was so hot. I walked in …dropped off my coat…and walked out….Mary just laughed!!! Then I came back again to pick up my phone that was still in the jacket I had dropped off…again Mary just laughed…(have i ever mentioned this before...who is usually ...
... was a nice relaxing lunch after which, we took Dad back to the apartment for some rest. Everyone else took a bit of a break as well, before heading over to the Rialto Markets to check them out. After wandering these markets for a while and making a few small purchases, we headed back to the apartment and a little more rest before dinner.
We actually left the apartment around 6 p.m., which is a bit early for dinner, as a lot of places ...
