Hotel Becher is located just off the Grand Canal a short distance from St. Mark's Plaza. Guests may arrive by boat (60 Euro minimum for a taxi) or walking through Venice's alleys. If walking, one may use the Teatro Fenice as an easy landmark. The...More
The hotel has canal access which is a plus for me. Got there via private boat they arranged for us.
The rooms are larger than the Venice & Paris standards and well-decorated.
Breakfast selection is limited but tasted good. Just go down early for the...More
Very enjoyable stay in an 18th century classical Venetian hotel. Obviously old style but full of character with 2 glorious balconies overlooking the canal. It was clean and the bathroom was modern. Breakfast was included but they didn't cater very well for it. There were...More
Old hotel and small in size. However on a canal and although balcony room is very small it is still worth the experience. Hearing the gondoliers singing as they pass threw is amazing. It is a quiet and peaceful area and close walk to all...More
Contrary to what happens too often in many public places of Venice, the welcome at this hotel was very good, attentionate and professional. Its location only 5' from the Piazza San Marco makes this hotel an excellent place to visit Venice.

The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and
Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.

We took a water taxi from the airport to the hotel organised by the hotel. It was very easy, not to mention a lovely way to first experience Venice, as the taxis leave from the airport (signs in airport) and you are delivered right to the landing at the hotel. I did take the water bus back from the airport having dropped my family there as I had a few more day's work to do. The waterbus takes it time!
