Breakfast at the hotel is included. Kyle had a cappuccino, a chocolate chip muffin, cereal and a pear and Hannah had Earl Grey tea, a cream cheese filled croissant, a plum, an egg filled pie (kind of like quiche with a flaky bread crust) and a salami and cheese sandwich. We ate in one of the rooms right next to the canal.
After breakfast, …
We woke up at 4:30am, got ready and set off with our host Vassilius. He drove us to the airport
(for a fee, plus additional surcharge for the early hours). He is a weird man who hasn’t seemed happy once since we arrived. He just complained that he was tired because “the kid kept waking up every two hours” and cursed at the red …
Getting lost in Venice
We had a really good nights sleep last night and kept on dozing this morning. I woke at 6am and opened the windows, so I could here the bells ringing in Saint Marcs square. It was lovely just laying there and hearing all the sounds of Venice waking up. We then kept nodding off and eventually got up at around 9.30am …
We get to Paris Bercy station after a little confusion as there is a Bercy staion and a Paris Bercy. Each right next to each other but you have to leave Bercy to walk across the road to get to Paric Bercy. Right so after we lug our suitcases up and down Metro stairs and finally find the right place, we have access to the lounge due to our tickets …
... would stand for a ceremony, had its ceiling completely covered in mosaics depicting the Old Testament. Once inside the Basilica we succumbed to its beauty. The ceiling was again covered in mosaics, each tile was two pieces of glass pressed against each other with a 24kt Gold leaf in the middle. In the basilica we also got to see a giant wall pane made out of priceless jewels and crystals. In the old times, people only got to see ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Becher Venice
My daugher Jenny and I couldn't have been treated better. The concierge's were so helpful, always taking their time to explain directions. Whether it was shopping or sightseeing they would bring out a map and all their advice made our holiday so much easier. Our room was lovely, overlooking the canal and at night we would fall asleep with the sounds of gondolas floating by under the window. We were central to everything and it was a quick and easy ( and beautiful) walk to wherever we wanted to go. I can't imagine why anyone would stay on the mainland. I will miss the great breakfast that helped me start my day and the greetings and smiles whenever we passed the front desk. I am already planning a return trip next year and I would never stay anywhere else. Thank you so much for everything that made our trip so special. Ann
Lovely hotel in the centre of Venice
This hotel is ideally situated for the main attractions of Venice. It is small, spotless and very quiet. The staff are exceptionally pleasant and keen to help in any way they can. Venice is a beautiful city and this hotel was excellent for our first trip. I would certainly recommend it without reservation.
We have just returned from a wonderful 3 night midweek break in Venice. The hotel has only recently opened and is beautifully decorated and furnished. Our room was small and spotlessly clean with large en-suite wetroom. Paolo and Anna, the owners, were extremely friendly and helpful as were the other members of staff we met. The breakfast room on the ground floor (there is one on each floor) was rather small but the same can't be said for the breakfast! There were cereals, yogurts, fruit, croissants, rolls, cheese and cold meats, and lashings of delicious italian coffee of course! The hotel is very conveniently located, about 3 minutes walk from St Marks square and I would recommend it highly to anyone. Take lots of money if you want to indulge yourself on a holiday in Venice. The shops are opulent and outlandish. It can be done on a budget as long as you don't want to buy anything. We walked (a lot!) and hunted out the less expensive restaurants. If like us you can't afford to hire a gondola you can cross the grand canal on one for 50c near the Rialto.
Great Little Hotel
My husband, myself and our Dutch friends stayed at the Hotel Becher for 5 days. The hotel is in a great location, a short stroll from Piazza San Marco - in fact we walked all over Venice. The reception staff were friendly and helpful. Our room overlooking the canal was lovely, as was the spacious bathroom. The hotel was very clean. The breakfast was adequate, although the room in which breakfast was served was small. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel for a short stay in Venice.
Großartiges kleines Hotel
Mein Mann, ich und unsere holländischen Freunde verbrachten 5 Tage im Hotel Becher. Das hotel ist perfekt gelegen, nur einen kurzen Spaziergang vom Markusplatz entfernt - tatsächlich sind wir überall in Venedig hingelaufen. Das rezeptionsperssonal war freundlich und hilfsbereit. Unser Zimmer mit Blick auf den kanal war richtig schön, wie auch das Bad, in dem es jede Menge Platz gab. Das Hotel war sehr sauber. Das Frühstück war in Ordnung, wenn auch das Frühstückszimmer etwas klein war. Ich kann dieses Hotel durch und durch für einen Kurzurlaub in Venedig empfehlen.
A hidden jewel in the heart of Venice
This Hotel is really beautiful inside. It is right in the heart of Venice, with St Marc's Square about 3 minutes away on foot (allowing for shoppers) and the Accademia bridge and the Rialto bridge each about 10 minutes away (in different directions). Our room was small but beautifully appointed and the public rooms were a symphony of marble. The hotel has it's own landing for Gondolas and Water Taxis. The owners are very welcoming and speak excellent german and very good english (as well as Italian, obviously). All in all, it was a pleasure to stay with them. We'd definitely go again.
A TREASURE IN THE HEARTH OF VENICE
The Hotel Becher is a real treasure in the hearth of Venice. It is just facing the Fenice Theatre and about 5 minutes walking form St Markus Place. The hospitality given is excellent, the room are gorgous with venetian style forniture, and also breakfast was very good. Can just suggest to go over to this hotel, it will be a real surprise for the money !
Venedig und das Hotel Becher sehen und wiederkommen
Etwas Besonderes zu unserem 30. Hochzeitstag das war Venedig und das Hotel Becher.
Hier stimmte alles.
Die Leitung des Hotels ist unaufdringlich freundlich, sehr kompetent und geht ganz inviduell auf die Wünsche der Gäste ein. Wir fühlen uns herzlich Willkommen und umsorgt. Da es ein kleines aber feines Hotel ist, ist der Gast kein anonymes Wesen. Selbst das Frühstück war prima, so in bella Italia nicht erwartet.
Wir können nur herzlich Dank sagen für den schönen Aufenthalt.
Irgendwann kehren wir dort wieder ein und wünschen dem Hotel und allen dort Beschäftigten alles Gute.
Auf ein Wiedersehen

Ottimo hotel a due passi da san marco
Siamo stati 3 giorni presso questo ,hotel molto carino, siamo arrivati con il motoscafo ed attraccato sul loro pontile privato , era tutto un via vai di gondole , la camera era molto bella pulita e nuova perche mi dicevano che hanno aperto da poco , il servizio alla reception e ottimo, l hotel si trova a poca distanza da san marco .Consiglio vivamente questo hotel di 3 stelle che secondo noi puo essere tranquillamente paragonato ad un 4 stelle
