The Santa Marie Foris is one classy place to stay. It's elegance begins in the entrance and is obvious throughout the building. Since it was an old converted palazzo. The owner of the original building is still the owner and provided the massive renovations to convert it to a hotel. The furnishing are impressive, done up in creams, whites and... More

This modern home converted into a bed and breakfast was amazing. From the lobby with its carved Thai door and interesting photographs to the library upstairs it was more than we ever expected. The decor was beautifully done in black and white theme throughout-- the outdoor garden was lovely and we had a glass of wine there before going out... More

Interesting hotel in easier walking distance of main attractions. Helpful, friendly staff. Lovely design of the hotel rooms, with a number of quiet areas, including a library. Good breakfast range and coffee brewed on request: whilst I wasn't impressed with the pastries the other options more than made up for this, especially the ham. Plus being able to eat outdoors...

The owner was helpful with everything including booking taxis, suggesting places to eat and showing us the way to get to places. A perfect 3 night stay for my son who has aspergers.I... More

Our room was spacious, and elegant.The bed was comfortable, in fact the whole place is a quiet retreat. Breakfast was full of options, served on the roof top terrace or the adjacent room. It's a short walk to everywhere. The staff was gracious and helpful. My favorite stay out of 6 cities in Italy.

Beautiful period building located within an easy 10 minutes walk of everything. Congenial host (very personable and helpful), splendid room. Location was somewhat noisy with traffic, bathrooms OK but not brilliant, breakfast (optional extra) was definitely missable

Very good location for historical sites in town. B&B nicely appointed and furnished. Spacious room and nice bathroom. Definitely good value for money. It would be a nice touch to get sleepers. Can't comment on breakfast as we always preferred going out.

Of the 8 UNESCO World Heritage sites in Ravenna, 6 are within walking distance of one another, and Villa Foris is on a quiet road 3 mins from the cobbled road leading to St Vitaly Church. So you can't beat it for location. Our suite (actually the whole property) was elegantly furnished in a contemporary style. Luca was very helpful... More

Excellent hotel to stay. A wonderful Villa in the center of Ravenna, few bedrooms very fine furnitures, calm and quiet, relaxing, excellent breakfast. We were four and they have a wonderful room under the roof, with an enormous bathroom and two separate rooms. We couldn't ask for something better.

A lovely little hotel and nice staff , the room was massive and had everything you could need . The breakfast room had a massive chandler that was most impressive. The only downside was the car park was a little walk but the staff were very helpful with directions . I will definitely be back
