“All you need right in the heart of the city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We stayed here for a weekend trip to Ravenna - which is well worth visiting. The hotel is right in the centre of the old city - which is pretty quiet as the streets are pedestranised. The main attractions of the city are in easy walking distance, you can unload your luggage and the helpful staff will direct you to an inexpensive car park.

The rooms are clean and comfortable though somewhat lacking in atmosphere. The breakfast absolute fine and although it's an extra it is nice to see proper fresh juices available in Italy.

We stayed in room 6, the junior room on the 2nd floor.
Small room and mini bath room, but all very clean and well equiped.
Breakfast is included in the room rate and offers good choice of breads, cheeses, meats fruits, marmlades, fresh yoghurt and coffees. At some extra cost also egg and bacon and fresh fruit juices are available.
Staff is very friendly and helpful.

At walking distance, some 20 minutes, from the railway station.
Great location in Ravenna, in the middle of most of the Unesco monuments. For the few monuments at some distance from the city centre, one can get free bicycles from the Tourist Information, close by the Hotel.

This hotel is right in the centre near the Piazza del Popolo. The staff really make the place and when we arrived at 10p.m., desperate to eat something the night porter suggested two places and then rang up and arranged a table for us - he couldn't have been more helpful.
The room was modern and clean. Breakfast was good with the choice of cheese, different cold meats, yoghurt, fresh fruit, croissants and the possibility for just a few Euros extra a cooked breakfast. We weren't so keen on the coffee but then all around us were so many wonderful bars it just didn't matter.
Good value and we would stay again.

Room and bathroom were on the small size but had most of what one needed. We found it quite noisy at night. Breakfast was good with a large choice and they provided a basket of gluten-free products for my coeliac husband. One disappointment was that the free Wifi didn't work with our I-pad..

This is a friendly hotel just off the main piazza in Ravenna. Its walking distance from the Railway station (if you have wheeled luggage ).

The room was large and well equipped. Air conditioner worked nicely. There is a fridge in the room with the usual sodas and drinks - all of which are very moderately priced. There was free internet which was perfectly fine. The staff at the front desk were very friendly and helpful as they would say in Italian : "molto gentile" . Breakfast was typically Italian - and good enough. Overall I cannot think of anything to find fault with the establishment.

The gelateria in front of the hotel is perhaps one of the best in Emiglia-Romagna - don't miss the ice-cream made out of "uva fragola" - the strawberry grape !
There is a piadinerria just near the ice cream shop which is good for quick snacks - there are good restaurants if you go further down where you can have Tortilloni washed down with cheap and excellent wine (e.g. 1 litre of excellent house wine = Euro 3 !! )

I stayed at the Hotel Centrale Byron for one night on an excursion to Ravenna to see the famous late Roman and early Byzantine mosaics. The hotel is centrally located, just 10 minutes from the train station, and just a few minutes away from all the important sights.

I was traveling by myself, so I opted for the economy room. It was admittedly small, and the decor was a bit dated, but it was impeccably clean and comfortable. The bathroom was tiny, but spotless, and had plenty of towels and soap. My only complaint was the shower design which was not optimal and resulted in the bathroom floor being a little flooded. Still, there was plenty of hot water and good water pressure.

The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, and spoke several languages. They pointed out good places to eat, and how to get the bus from Ravenna to Classe, to see the church of Sant'Apollinare.

What I liked most, however, was the large breakfast. This is nothing short of a miracle in Italy. Italian breakfasts are awful--sugary pastries that leave you hungry in 10 minutes. The hotel has a breakfast room with a large buffet, and you also had the option of ordering eggs (a substantive breakfast is what you need before sightseeing) for a just a few euros more. The breakfast made my stay.

This is definitely the place to go when you're in Ravenna.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing in the interior courtyard if you don't want to be bothered by noise on the...

The hotel has a perfect location, also from the train station you can walk there. Going out for dinner or drinks is not a problem at all, as everything is close. Although the hotel is very central it was not noise at all at night.
The staff is very friendly and speaks several languages.
The breakfast was huge and very very good, compared to other Italian hotels.
The room was clean and had everything that is needed (AC worked perfectly) if you just stay their for sleeping (perfect cost effectiveness)
The ice cream across the street is awesome!!
