Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


Hotel Becher is a charming historic property with an excellent location in the central San Marco district, only five minutes on foot from St. Mark’s Square and the Doge’s Palace. Don’t miss the Rialto Bridge, 10 minutes' walk away, with its stately stone arches and "one of the city's most famous views" of the Grand Canal, according to Fodor's. The hotel may sit right in the heart of the sightseeing action, but the area is surprisingly peaceful at night -- you’ll have to head across the Grand Canal to San Polo or Santa Croce for Venice’s nightlife.

Covered in gold and decked out with embossed wallpaper and opulent carved armchairs, this intimate hotel is an exercise in excess on a small scale. There’s no restaurant, but the hotel does offer a breakfast buffet, served at linen-covered tables in a cozy side room overlooking the San Luca Canal.

The reception is manned around the clock and, unusually for a small hotel, there’s also a private dock for water taxi transfers and gondola trips. You can also rent it for private drinks on the water’s edge. Guests can use the Wi-Fi for free, and you’ll find a computer with free printing in the lobby.

Rooms vary in size, starting at a petite 150 square feet and rising to more than 300, but all are traditionally furnished in 18th-century Venetian style, with regal colors, gilt furnishings and full-length windows framed by luxurious drapes. The Junior Suite is the most impressive of the bunch, with a balcony overlooking the canal and its singing gondoliers -- opt for a room to the rear for a quieter night. Classic rooms aren't huge, so it’s worth upgrading to a Superior room for more space.
