Oyster Hotel Review

 Scene

Grand marble lobby and breakfast served in beautiful fresco-covered ballroom

On a side canal with a private water landing, the Luna Hotel Baglioni is in an excellent location with top-notch service and classy decor. The lobby has tall ceilings, marble floors and columns, an ornate fireplace, and opulent chandeliers. Other common areas are just as grand -- guests love eating breakfast in the Salone Marco Polo, an exquisite space with frescoes on the ceiling and walls. Canova, a formal on-ste restaurant, is even popular with local Venetians. The fancy café has a full bar and serves pastries as well.

 Location

Steps from Saint Mark’s Square and a two-minute walk to the world-famous Harry’s Bar

The Luna Hotel Baglioni is in a perfect location, just steps away from the shops and restaurants of Saint Mark’s Square along with a host of other attractions. The hotel has its own water landing, and the San Marco-Vallaresso water bus stop is a three-minute walk away. Teatro la Fenice and Teatro Goldoni are around five minutes away by foot, and Harry’s Bar, famous in part because of the alleged creation of the Bellini at the venue, is close by as well.

 Rooms

Beautiful traditional rooms, some with views of Saint Mark’s Basin and San Giorgio Maggiore

Rooms are beautifully decorated in soft colors, detailed with floral wallpaper and fabric-covered headboards for the beds as traditional Venetian furniture completes the scene. There are suites available with varying features like gray marble bathrooms, handmade Versailles parquet flooring, and private terraces overlooking the island of San Giorgio Maggiore. Rooms have flat-screen TVs with satellite channels, with iPod docking stations available for suite spaces. Snacks and Wi-Fi are offered for a fee. Some rooms overlook Saint Mark’s Basin while other rooms have less interesting views.

 Features

Award-winning restaurant and café with full bar

Canova, an award-winning restaurant serving both Italian and international cuisine, is on-site along with a café and full bar. A free hot and cold breakfast buffet with a variety of items -- including smoked salmon, bacon, and sausage -- gets served in the stunning Salone Marco Polo. (Plastic bowls featuring cartoon characters are a nice touch for the kids.) Diners can also opt to have items from an a la carte menu brought to their rooms. The hotel has a private water landing, making it easier for guests arriving with luggage.

 Bottom Line

The Luna Hotel Baglioni is a luxury chain hotel with 104 rooms located less than a two-minute walk from the shops, restaurants, and architecture of Saint Mark’s Square. The classic hotel delivers a high level of service in a beautiful setting. Canova, an award-winning restaurant serving Italian and international cuisine, is on-site along with a café and full bar.
