Where to stay in Novo Hamburgo

Accommodations in the city are much more "novo" than they are "Hamburgo," so those hoping to stay in a period timber-clad German pension will be disappointed. Novo Hamburgo's accommodations tend to cluster in the Centro district, either side of the main east-west thoroughfare. Essentially, hotels are the only lodgings in the city; they range from the simple and casual to more upmarket, business-traveler oriented fare. Despite the lack of variety in form, you'll find a decent choice when it comes to character and cost.

  • This should be one of the most carefully preserved place in Novo hamburgo since it was the place where first immigrants started the city. However, this city has never had a good eyes to history and to...  more »
  • The Swan hotel has a simple breakfast with a few items, but satisfying. Has, also, a good infrastructure, but we can't use it. There is a large swimming pool announced as it wasn't heated thermal. There is also a living room with fireplace, TV and comfortable sofas (which was what attracted us in the site that did pretty cold this weekend). However, never this fireplace was lit and 9:00 pm the lights were extinguished. I asked one of the staff at the hotel and he told me that there was an official available to accompany guests in that space so the lights have been deleted and not turned on the fireplace. We had to buy a bottle of wine out of the hotel and we open in your room the bar wasn't working. Regrettable.

  • In addition to the houses toppled by the historical heritage, the neighborhood offers Museum Square, the beautiful Church of piety, in addition to the local shops. I love running through the neighborhood streets, admire the historic heritage.
