Excellent Hospitality

Accommodations were typical for a European hotel. Small room and average breakfast, but the location was excellent and the hospitality of the front desk staff was superb. They bent over backwards to make sure we had everything we needed and helped with directions, dinner recommendations, and even offered us a free bottle of wine after getting taxed 118 euros for not having our water taxi ticket validated prior to boarding. They arranged a private water taxi to pick us up right at their dock to take us to the airport on our return, which was worth every penny versus taking the cattle barge that stops at 20 different docks prior to reaching the San Marco dock (and fined us for not having "validated" tickets).

Venice for one night

Hotel was in an excellent location -- close to San Marco square and other sights. Room was clean and the location was quiet. The staff was quite helpful and courteous. The hotel was hard to find. I had to ask a waiter at a local restaurant where the hotel was located. The address says it is on San Marco street but we found it on Calle Barcaroli (I think). I did see one street sign for San Marco. The streets seem to have more than one name so it is difficult to find an address or use a map. The hotel is just West of the canal bridge crossing by a few yards.

Eat at the restaurant that is located on the South side of the Accademia bridge. Sit at the outside tables right next to the bridge. The pizza is good and you will have best view of the Grand Canal in all of Venice.

Ideally located.

Great location. Arrived to friendly, helpful staff (throughout) and good advice for our stay in Venice. Nice breakfast, especially when had on the hotel mooring by the canal. San Marco - 5 mins, Rislto Bridge - 10 mins. Would recommend this hotel.

Fantastic and excellent getaway.

An excellent,fantastic experience. The staff,hotel,location (the best, could see all the gondolas pass by!!)and the breakfast were awesome!The water taxi dropped us at the entrance and picked us up to take us to the cruise. We arrive without suitcases and the staff kept calling the airline to find them! Spotless room and bathroom. Our family enjoyed our stay. We want to go back:) They were 6 of us. All of us were impressed!

Great place

We arrived at 12 and were told we could check in at 2, but they kept our bags for us and gave us a place to clean up. The room was beautiful, and when we asked for separate beds, they separated them for us. They gave us maps and helped us with whatever we needed, even preparing a breakfast for us at 6:30 because we were being picked up at 7. Nice people, very nice place, and a great location between San Marco and the Rialto.

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

What we loved the most about Venice was the Piazza San Marcos at night. There are very expensive cafés where quartets play classical music around the square. You don't have to sit at the cafés to listen. Most people were just standing close and listening. It's a magical place.

Super stay at hotel Becher

Lovely hotel - and we were lucky enough to have rooms that overlooked the canal. Interesting to watch during the day, quieted at night. I supposed you could get there by public transportation, but what do you want as your first erxperience in Venice - time pulling luggage over cobblestones and up/down bridges (no matter how good the directions are) or a lovely water taxi that delivers you to the friendly inn's personal dock? I know which we chose and it remains one of my favorite memories of Venice. Close to St, Marks (again, if you get the directions right), clean, well priced, and attendeded by friendly owners. Nice breakfast included - but doesn't have a restaurant attached so no room service. Even so, I would stay there again without hesitation!

Darling Little Hotel

We spent 2 nights at this cute little hotel, which is very well situated - about a 10 minute walk from San Marcos in one direction and the Rialto Bridge in the other. The hotel was very clean and the staff was extremely nice. The room we had was a triple, and we were very comfortable, but I must admit that the room was pretty small with the third bed in it. (But who spends much time in the room when they can be out exploring Venice?) Breakfast was very good - bread, cheeses, cereal, yogurt, fruit, etc. but no hot food. We loved it!

A Hidden Gem

The staff was gracious and welcoming and very efficient. Our room was lovely, spacious and quiet. Our room overlooked the canal which was charming and the breakfast was delicious with great service. Every detail was handled efficiently. I would definitely stay at the Becher again.

We found a local grocery store along one of the back streets for our water, fruit, etc. which cut down on food expenses.

Convenient Hotel in Venice

Small hotel in very convenient location near La Fenice Opera House. Owners went out of their way to leave us a tray for breakfast when they found out we had to leave at 5 AM for the airport. We moved from a "5 star hotel" that had AC problems to this hotel that had perfectly working AC. They have their own canal entrance, so we could have the water taxi at 5 AM without having to drag our luggage anywhere. Very satisfied with Becher Hotel.
