We chose Hotel Romea so that we wouldn't have to negotiate in-town driving in Ravenna's limiited traffic areas. The bus stop is just across the street and there's a tabacchi down the block where you can buy tickets. It's about a 10-15 minute ride to the center. It's also convenient to drive to Classe from here--just down the road.
The hotel caters more to business people than tourists, though we saw a few others there. The room was fairly basic but adequate, with a decent bathroom and great air conditioning. There were a few English-speaking news channels on the TV--BBC, SkyNews, and FOX.
Breakfast was good, standard Italian: cereal, yogurt, coldcuts, rolls, hardboiled eggs, etc. Good cappuccino (though there's a self-service coffee machine which was broken when we visited--probably will be in use in future).
There's a big roundabout just outside the hotel which starts to get busy around 6:00 am; though it woke me, it wasn't super loud and I feel right back asleep.
The front desk allowed us to leave our car in the lot well after check-out time so we could bus into Ravenna again. Very much appreciated.
