“Excellent Hotel in the Heart of Ravenna”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

My wife and I are in our late 60s and are independent travelers. We stayed at Hotel Bisanzio for a romantic three day weekend in late February. This hotel was excellent and has an excellent location. We never rent cars, but we were able to walk to the hotel, rolling luggage, through the historic district from the train station in about ten minutes. The Hotel could not be in a better location within the largely pedestrian historic zone, and is very close to all major sites, public squares, and restaurants. The hotel itself offered large comfortable rooms, modern bath, drying rack, excellent wi-fi in the room, professional and friendly staff, control of the heat (important at that time of the year), wonderful views of the city, and a superb breakfast every morning. This is an excellent choice for enjoying Ravenna for more than a quick in and out day trip. Enchanting Ravenna is more than worth a long weekend.

Room Tip: Ask for room on back for view of Cathedral.

We stayed one night here, we were upgraded to a suite which was spacious although a little dated and quirky! The reception staff were extremely helpful, beds were wonderful, the hotel wifi was excellent and the breakfast pleasant. No hotel restaurant but opposite a charming wine bar and easy walking to the centre. Well placed for exploring the mosaics too.
Excellent hotel for a short stay.

Located on the edge of the pedestrian centre of Ravenna this is an okay Best Western hotel, clean and efficient. Pleasant garden can be found through rather souless lobby area, which has computer access - hotel has good wi-fi. Rather hard beds and even harder pillows,decent bathroom. Very good breakfast with two efficient maids. Good restaurants within 5 minutes.

We stayed in this hotel for one night to see the mosaics. We booked the room on aeroplan points. The front desk people were excellent. They got us set up with free parking and after the false start got us into the centro with the proper permit. The hotel itself is pretty dated and definiteiy not a four star. The beds are hard as rock and pillows are flatter than flat. The shower is really small and wallpaper is peeling. Be careful to open or close the blinds on the window otherwise they rattle and bang all night in the wind. The doors are a joke. The handles don't turn so you have to slam the door (sometimes more than once) to get it closed. This ensures that the whole floor knows whether you're in or not and what time you came back or left.
The breakfast is quite good. The women making the coffee and laying out the breakfast were very pleasant and incredibly efficient. The hotel is also very close to the mosaics. You can walk everywhere.
The fantastic staff save this hotel, because without them it's just a tired hotel in need of a facelift.

It's a 2 block walk from Bisanzio to the apse of Bsilica San Vitale, 2 more blocks to the entrance in the west. If you came to see Europe's most glorious mosaics, this hotel is perrfectly situated,

The elevator (ascensor) works, which is worth a star in itself. Yes, the old-world charm is lacking, but, then, no one is leaving the doors ajar on the 9th floor like with a turn-of-the century, shaky lift,

Room 203 had 2 flat-screen TVs with ample channells, bed and sitting rooms, functional AC, Bathroom had modern plumbing. Pilllows were oversized but hard.

We found the staff helpful and courteous. Colazione was better than average,

can't really find any faults with this hotel. It is in the centre of town, easy walking distance of all the main points of interests: shopping, churches, bars etc..it was spotless, spacious, free wifi: always a big bonus and not always the case with the higher end hotels!

It is a good hotel of its type, ie not particularly characterful, but in an excellent location, with parking just outside, and very helpful, friendly staff. They were effecient at the desk giving us maps etc and in the evening we enjoyed the garden and chatting to the staff whilst we watched the bats circle in the summer night. The bedroom was fine, clean and quiet. The location was great, straight out the door to elegant shops and squares of fine buildings. It's a flat city so lots of cyclists weaving between the pedestrians out shopping . The mosaics are easy to get to too and wonderful. One ticket buys you entry to several churches and main sights.
