This was our 3d time at the Luna. This hotel has the best location of any hotel in Venice. It is 50 steps from St. Mark's square but the hotel starts at a canal which dead ends so no tourists turn toward the hotel from St. Marks. It is absolutely a quiet haven with stunning views of St. Mark's Campanille, the Grand Canal and Giudecca island. The first 2 times at the hotel we had suites with extremely large terraces. I have attached a photo of the terrace suite. When we were told we were not getting a terrace we were depressed until we entered the suite we were given. It was perfect in every way. Venetian silk fabric wall coverings, gorgeous period furniture, a large marble bathroom with a seat in the shower, and giant picture windows which fully opened to amazing views of the Canal and Giudecca. We were in Room 504, named the Vecellio Tiziano Suite, which I strongly recommend. The bed and pillows were comfortable. The breakfast buffet is in a room with beautiful ceiling frescos. A photo of the frescos is attached. The bar is comfortable and the bartender friendly. The only negatives were the restaurant- the food was a big disappointment- and the fact they have sold out to cruise lines as a cruise line had a cruise extension at the hotel. In the past, we were the only Americans. Now, it was overrun with them. So, our little gem has been discovered. Oh well. Anyway, go for the location and the amazing suites.
