“Great Hotel, Friendly Staff, Will Stay Here Again!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

First impressions are lasting impressions and this hotel left a mark on me. The moment you walk into this charming hotel and greeted by the staff made you feel at home. Massimo and Anna Thank you for making our stay a memorable one. My family and I visited Venice January 7th and we found this hotel comforable and warm, our room was just right for three people, the bathroom was big and roomy. The buffet breakfast was good, the buffet room is small, but its cozy and you feel like your in a personnel dining room. Location was great, rooms are very clean. Safe in the room. Once you settle into your room, just explore venice and don't worry about getting lost. When we left the next day, we shared the private water taxi with another family, thanks to Massimo. When we return to Venice we would stay here again. They treated us like family. Don't over look this gem of a place in Venice, you will not regret staying here......Make your reservation now!

Room Tip: Wear flat shoes and just walk and enjoy this seaside city......Get direction from the water taxi sto...

From all the hotels in Venice, we fortunately selected Hotel Becher for our first visit to Venice in Nov 2012. First, the staff was super friendly, informative and accomodating. Second, the breakfast buffet was wonderful. The cappucinos were abundant at breakfast. Third, the canal view room was small but all that a couple needs. Fourth, good location near St Marks and Realto bridge. And the answer is YES....to if we would return to this hotel. So try it, you'll like it!!!

My husband and I traveled through Italy for 2 weeks in november for out honeymoon and this was the best hotel of our trip! I will say initially it was hard to find but if you can get walking directions from the San Marco water stop it really is a short 5-10 minute walk tops! Miss Anna was so wonderful from the moment we walked in and the rest of the staff was all so friendly. She went above and beyond to make sure or stay and experience in Venice was outstanding!! The room is a bit small but again I am an American so most rooms in Europe are smaller than what we are used to. It was very clean and had everything we needed. We had a very nice view of the canal and was not noisy in the least. It was a 10-15 minute walk to the Rialto and the hotel was also very helpful in giving us directions to get over there. The breakfast was great, only hotel that made cappuccino's fresh instead of from a machine. For the location and price this is a great hotel to stay, the great and helpful staff just makes it an even better reason to stay!

Wonderful hotel. Anna the owner is extremely helpful with her candid answers. Hotel has an elevator and a dock for your water taxi from the airport. Concierge was also very helpful. Breakfasts are great. Location is mid way between San Marco Square and Realto Bridge. Short 15 minute walk to either. I would highly recommend this hotel. Drawbacks ? Heat in our room was too high. Advice ? Get a room overlooking the canal. Also, stay in Venice at least 2 days to see all that's there.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the canal side for a view of gondolas coming by.

Our family of 4 stayed here last August, 2012 for four nights. It was our first time in Venice. Hotel Becher was the perfect location to discover Venice, being situated at the centre of San Marco district and within 5 minutes walk from the San Marco Square. It is a small little boutique hotel hidden in a narrow alley, but right from the entrance, was clean and air conditioned. We rented the family room (hard to find in Venice), which offered surprisingly plenty of space for our family, which includes two grown teenagers. Right from when we disembarked from our water taxi, we felt the warmth, welcome and genuine hospitality from the front staff. Both front clerks, Anna and Massimo, offered consistent, friendly and helpful service throughout our stay, making us feel like part of a family. Another big plus was the included buffet breakfast, which was one of the best I've seen - fresh and full of variety. The ladies serving the breakfast were super helpful and very courteous. The best location and the best value - you will not be disappointed! We will visit again!

Room Tip: If you are travelling with three or more, pay extra to get the family room.

Stayed here last week for 5 nights... The hotel staff make the place, so helpful and friendly. Especially in giving tips on where to go/see and places to eat etc.

The hotel itself is in an ideal location, 5 minutes walk from the Water Bus stop (San Marco) that you get from the Airport (the best way to go IMO). Also only 5 minutes from St.Mark's Square and also The Rialto in the other direction. The rooms are clean, warm, nicely decorated, and cleaned daily, and the shower/bathroom is nice too (important for me). We stayed in a 'Superior' room and would recommend this for the value for money.

The breakfast put on by the hotel, although fairly basic, was decent and kept us going for a few hours until lunch.

Would definitely recommend staying at Hotel Becher.... Go get lost in Venice, great fun!

Room Tip: Go for a 'Superior' room with a Canal view

Hotel Becher is a small hotel (only 17 rooms) 5 minutes from Place St-Marc and the Water Bus Station.
The service is excellent and the room decorated in typical Italian style. Breakfast are served in a quaint room beside the canal and a good variety of food ,not usually offered in a "continental breakfast, is available.
The staff was very helpful in recommending good restaurants. and making arrangements for our departure
I has been quite an adventure to find the hotel in the rain and in the dark upon our arrival, even with precises directions, but that is the fun of being in Venice, i.e. getting lost!!
Everything was very clean and well kept.
We will stay there again when we visit Venice.

Room Tip: Try to have a room on the canal. It is more expensive but it is quite an experience to have the gon...
