Overview

Hand-painted frescoes, Murano glass chandeliers and objets d'art combine at this 12th-century Venetian palazzo

The Look

This former palace started life in the 12th century as a convent before serving as a shelter for the Knights Templar during the Crusades. Brimming with history, it features ornate stucco work and period furniture. The public areas are dressed in silk-covered walls, lashings of colored marble and sparkling Murano crystal, and are stuffed full of precious objets d’art and gilt-framed paintings. Opulent ceiling frescoes from the school of celebrated artist Giambattista Tiepolo, decorate the ballroom–turned–breakfast room, which still holds lavish balls during Venice’s spectacular annual Carnevale.

Bed and Bath

Some rooms overlook the city’s tiled rooftops and narrow streets, while others look out onto a small canal, St. Mark’s Basin or the Royal Gardens. Each room is unique, but all are elegantly decorated in muted tones, with sumptuous fabrics, Venetian glass mirrors, Murano crystal chandeliers and framed prints. Period-style furniture sits harmoniously alongside high-tech necessities such as flat-screen TVs and iPod docking stations. There’s plenty of storage space behind mirrored doors and, in larger rooms, a separate dressing area. The enormous Italian marble bathrooms drip with gold fittings and feature large tubs as well as powerful showers.

Beyond

Start the day in style with breakfast in the grand setting of the Salone Marco Polo, under the fresco-covered ceiling. After a long day’s exploring, head to the Caffè Baglioni for coffee or a spritz (prosecco and Aperol) and aperitivi overlooking the side canal. The intimate Canova restaurant is resplendent with yet more Murano glass chandeliers, a polished parquet floor and tables bedecked in crisp white linen and heavy silverware. Its award-winning fare includes Venetian specialities such as black pasta with clams, sea bass with artichokes and Venetian-style calf’s liver, which you can wash down with a fine Italian wine recommended by the sommelier.

Southern USA meets Northern Italy

My 26 year old daughter and I traveled through Northern Italy for two weeks. Neither of us had been to Italy. Our third stop was in Venice staying in the Baglioni Hotel Luna and I must say they are as kind and lovely as people are in the South. The location is also fabulous.

The two gentlemen who greeted us at Reception were attentive and helpful (and of course true to Italian men they were most attractive!).

We had a beautifully appointed suite that was well stocked, had a slight view of a beautiful bell tower and was cleaned to perfection daily. The linens were luxurious.

The restaurant offers an extensive gin and tonic menu (amongst much else) so we enjoyed trying their different specialty cocktails.

We ate dinner in the bar one night which was delicious; the fresh catch sea bass and vegetables were cooked to perfection. The breakfast buffet was as delicious as it was beautifully presented.

The service staff was 100% astute. As we would come and go from the hotel we were always greeted by name. Lovely people!

I look forward to my future visits to Venice and will definitely return to this beautiful hotel.

My 26 year old daughter and I traveled through Northern Italy for two weeks. Neither of us had been to Italy. Our first stop was in Milan staying in the Baglioni Hotel Luna. I must say they are as kind and lovely as people are in the South.

BUT! I ordered a mushroom salad that is served cold and it was absolutely amazing! The fresh catch was perch and also divine.

I look forward to my future visits to Milan and will definitely return to the Baglioni Hotel Luna.

The Baglioni Luna is the right location: right by San Marco, near the valetta stop, and a walking distance from everywhere. The quality of the rooms and the level of service is high. The breakfast is well done with high quality foods and lots of selection.
