This swank place, inspired by the 1930s Viennese Secession movement, is in a remarkably serene cul-de-sac just minutes from Piazza Maggiore. Clean linens and elegant restraint are the hallmarks of the rooms, the lobby, even the elevators—and equally well-dressed people like to stay here. It's well worth the extra €10 or so to upgrade from a basic double, as other rooms are that much bigger. The ample breakfast includes eggs, and every evening the bar hosts a happy
hour. Note that the Novecento runs promotional offers throughout the year, especially on weekends. Those considering a longer stay might want to avail themselves of one of two luxurious apartments in a nearby palazzo, where the effortless style of the Novecento prevails.
