Historical Traveler Reviews Luna Hotel Baglioni Venezia Venice
I agree with Long Island, New York of 27th September. After reading reviews, I was really looking forward to my stay at the Baglioni on the weekend before Christmas, only to be really dissapointed. Their website showed pictures of beautiful rooms with four poster beds, unfortunately, there was nothing romantic about our room, it was clinical with no view and like any other bland hotel room which caters for business people. Foyer was impressive as was the location though.
Our favorite hotel in Venice!
We stayed here in February 2003 and really loved it. We thought it was the most incredible bargain we've ever had in an extreme high-end hotel. Been to Venice three times in the past two years, and we will stay at the Luna Baglioni from now on. You will really love both the location and the hotel. It's right at the vaporetto stop at San Marco.
You can walk anywhere from this location. Our room was really beautiful -- not huge but not too small either. Lovely bath. Beautifully decorated. First class all the way. Enjoy!
One of the top hotels in the world?
I selected this hotel from a travel magazine that rated it one of the top hotels in the world. Also, tripadvisor reviews were all positive.
The location is great,steps from San Marco. Easy acess by water taxi,dock at hotel entrance. While the hotel appears nicely decorated,I have to say I was somewhat disappointed by the very small room(superior single). Everything else was average,service,breakfast,front desk,etc.
My opinion is, this hotel is very expensive and over rated. I would try another hotel before I stay here again.
SO GREAT! My husband and I stayed here with our 5 year for 2 nights in August. We had a wonderful room with a balcony over their small canal. Room service was perfect. Location could not have been better. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Did not find it at all stuffy as with previous reviews. Guess we just hit it right. It was $$$$ but for the memories, great location and kid friendly staff you can't beat it. We would stay there again in a heartbeat.
I stayed at this hotel in Feb 03. The single I was in was small but very elegant. The hotel has an excellent location. The breakfast room alone is worth the price. I sat there for nearly two hours just enjoying the room's magnificance over a very relaxing and excellent breakfast. Highly recommended!
Best hotel in Italy!
Booked this hotel over the internet after an extensive search into best location vs price vs amenities. What a find! It was extremely hot in Venice - 20/07/03 for two nights - but the hotel lobby, breakfast room and ind rooms were cool and comfortable. The breakfast contained everything from eggs and bacon, to pastry of all kinds, to salmon, sausage, ham and cheeses.The front desk was always ready to help.
Venice was enhanced by our stay at this hotel.
Was able to stay at the Luna Baglioni at a discounted rate through my travel agent. The hotel has the ideal location, the staff was extremely friendly (they went out of their way to help), the rooms were very comfortable. Can't say enough good things about it. Especially if you can get a 5 star hotel for what you'd pay at a 3 star...
Perfect Place to Stay in Venice
Excellent location. Beautiful rooms with elegant baths. Great service. THE place to stay in Venice from our perspective.
We stayed at the Danieli on our honeymoon, but felt the Luna B was better (staying there a few years later). Not only are the staff more courteous and helpfull, but the atmosphere is extremely relaxing and comfortable. When in Venice the Danieli is a must to visit, but I would never want to stay anywhere other than the Luna B.
I can not say enough great things about this hotel. It is one of Venice's oldest and offers some spectacular views. The lobby is stunning and their concierge service is impecable. Our room was one of the most beautiful I have ever stayed in, with a balcony that gave a great view of a canal and gardens. The beds were to die for and the furniture class to a tea. Piazza San Marco was right outside the hotel door so we could hear the bells. The breakfast room was stunning, with wall paintings, chandeliers and drapes all around and a very good buffet. This hotel alone made Venice the most romantic place on earth for me.

And we are off to Venice! Ciao Ravello! When we arrived in Venice, the Venice Marathon was taking place!
Getting lost was my goal and I succeeded. I normally have a great sense of direction but you get so turned around. I spent the morning between the Academia, the Palazzo Cini Gallery, numerous churches and the Peggy Guggenheims collection. After all the heavy renaissance, baroque religious art, the Peggy Guggenheim collection was refreshing and not …
Monday. Today we were going to Venice! We couldn't wait. So, at about 10am when we walked out the door, everyone was really excited. We got on the road to Gatwick Airport, and had lunch there. Then we got on the plane.
After we got out of the airport at Venice, we took a shuttle to the city. Then we took the water bus to our hotel. We checked in, and then went out for dinner, where I had a lot of whole fish, which took ages to eat because of all the bones.

He was interesting to watch, but it also made us feel a little uncomfortable because he was so awkward. David didn't think he was a very good player either. At least it was entertaining.

... a relief. Arriving in Venice though after all the miles and the storms was something of an anti climax. When you see Venice in movies, on travel programs and even in pictures, you only really see the Grand Canal and the area around St Marks Square, but in fact you have to first enter a lagoon which is surrounded by a spit of land at such a low level that its hard to see on the approach. The main landmark is the huge black and white lighthouse at ...
