“Stunning Beauty in Perfect Quiet Location”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

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.

Room Tip: A suite with a terrace or Room 504 are outstanding- the best in Venice

Quite simply, the perfect Hotel. I stayed for four nights in a Junior suite while two others I travelled with stayed in another suite. I arrived by water taxi from the airport into the Hotels private dock off the grand canal surrounded by the most beautiful flowers. This was my first visit to Venice, and honestly I have never had a more incredible arrival, it will be remembered forever. Greeted warmly by the door man and quickly checked in, all facilites and nearby attractions were explained and I was given my luxurious door key and shown to my perfect suite. The view was simply amazing of the grand canal and iconic buildings. Located a stones throw from St Marks and surrounding attractions, but without the noise and stream of tourists, it provides the perfect base for a stay in Venice. We rented a private boat for a trip to the surrounding islands- expensive but well worth it, it really made the trip. I won't go on about what to do in Venice but it was the most romatic and culturally interesting city I have visited. This Hotel cannot be reccomended enough, many others should learn from it grace and personal touch.

Room Tip: Pay a visit to nearby Harry's Bar if you get a chance.

Fantastic central location, 2 minutes from St Marks Square and close to water transport. Our immaculate balcony room had a lovely view but was not noisy. Beautiful interiors. Exceptional service by efficient but friendly staff. Breakfast in the gorgeous ballroom was a lovely experience and the choice of food was extensive and tasty. They spoiled us with little complementary extras in the room, in the bar and at dinner. We highly recommend Luna Baglioni to anyone and would love to come back. We visited from 18th to 22nd May 2014. What a wonderful holiday!
Mike and Sue Neal

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony room overlooking the Royal Gardens.

Stayed here as part of an Italian tour. The hotel location is amazing. Steps from St. Mark's plaza, the Doge's Palace, and the Grand Canal, and an easy walk to all the major sites, yet situated with it's own dock in a way that the hotel is a nice oasis from the hoards of tourists in the area. Water taxis can pull right up to the door, and vaporettos (public water "buses") are only a short walk away so guests don't have to drag their luggage behind them around like we saw so many others doing. Our room was a bit small by American standards, but very nice and very quiet. The hotel staff was superb. The airline lost a piece of our luggage and the concierge made numerous calls to help retrieve it. The breakfast buffet was outstanding--I challenge anyone to eat all the varieties of pastry in one sitting. Rates are a bit pricey, but we were very happy with our visit and will definitely stay there again when we return to Venice.

Beautiful hotel, perfect setting close to everything & exceptional service. Loved it. Breakfast was served in the beautiful dining room with incredible frescoes on the walls and ceiling. It was incredibly grand. The staff were incredibly friendly and the trip out via private boat to Murano glass was great fun too.

Currently staying in the hotel and was upgraded to a suite. Great place, and as others have described it's not for the faint at heart if you're on a budget!! My biggest disappointment was paying $700 USD a night and I get NO included breakfast! Maybe I'm just too used to getting free breakfast in US hotels for around 1/4 or 1/3 of that price, but geez for what they want ($40Euro per person for breakfast, I can do a lot more with $120 Euro for starters).

The upgrade suite is very nice, but we were awakened before 6AM because the breakfast room was near our room and all we heard was the workers moving chairs around and banging all morning.

As good as the breakfast may be, I can walk down the street for some great breakfast pastries and other items for 3 people and still not come close to $40Euro for 3.

The Gondola dock is right outside the door and very convenient to everything. San Marco Piazza is just steps away. Great shopping in and around as well. They also have a free boat over to Murano that takes you to the glass blowing businesses.

Room Tip: Steer clear of the suites on 1st floor near breakfast.

Dear Guest,
Let us thank you for taking the time to tell us about your personal experience while staying with us and happy to hear you appreciated our free upgrade to a suite available.
We are just concerned about the fact that you did specifically book a room without breakfast. Being this a booking you did direct on our web site you were conscious of your choice. Gianmatteo Zampieri - Hotel Manager
