“Business or private - some nights at high standard”
Reviewed July 27, 2014

Hotel Mattei is a business hotel just outside the city of Ravenna. It is one of those unspectactular places you need, if you are busy with other things to do, but need a quiet and easy stay with all necessary comfort and a good breakfast. You should not expect more than that in the Mattei, but you get just that at a real high standard without missing anything.
The hotel is easy to find if you arrive by car and the parking is big and free. There is a bus station, but no way to find a reliable time table or route map.
The rooms are modern and acceptably spacious, the air condition is effective and quiet, the bed is good, the WiFi is useful, the bathroom is 5-star, the place is tidy. In the upper storeys you can even leave the road front windows open by night. Do not expect many international TV stations. (this is common in Italy).
The breakfast is Italian with many cakes and sweets, but the international parts are good as well. Fresh fruit is available and tasty. Ask for Cappuchino, if you want a real good morning coffee. The Italian brew called Cafe Americano, which is from the mug, should not be called coffee at all (common in Italy, too).
The service is helpful and very friendly. Do not expect them to be your tour guide or tourist office, though.
If you have a car and want to visit the amazing and unique late roman wonders of Ravenna, use the central parking "Largo Giustiniani" at Via Don Giovanni Minzoni, which is 3 Euros a day and just outside the historical center.

Room Tip: If you room is road-sided ask for a storey above 5 to avoid street and parking noise.

I stayed at this hotel for a weekend with my family, while visiting the fun park Mirabilandia.

Hotel structure is pretty nice, personnel has been very kind and accommodating through the entire stay.

Hotel style is a pleasant modern look, still with a touch of "warm".
I was in a triple room (room 206) and was very spacious. Only minus of the room was the extra bed, as it is in reality a sofa transformable in a bed and it was very discomfortable as well not very well functioning.

We had a special rate because we purchased the ticket through the Mirabilandia Park, and the only negative remark is the breakfast: it is served in a separate hall and it is a much poorer buffet that the standard breakfast buffet.
There was a poor-looking buffet of pastries, no fruit nor any salted items. No fresh juices either, though there was an automatic dispenser of orange and ACE juices.
It is understandable that by having a special rate link to the park there might be some differences, but I believe that having some slices of ham and cheese as part of the buffet (am not asking for a full intercontinental breakfast) would have been a very low additional cost to the hotel and a much better customer's appreciation.

Overall, definitely a nice hotel to stay with your family or even for business trips.

I've slept one night in Grand Hotel Mattei accompanied by some friends. The room was well-equiped and very clean. The hotel has a big lounge downstairs with wifi-connection, which is always handy. The food was good, but not excellent. The location of the hotel is not great, close to traffic and industry. The staff members were all very cordial and helpful.
This is a nice hotel to spend the night in style when you're passing through.

I stayed fir a week on business, plus a weekend just to experience a little of Ravenna. The rooms were as nice as you would expect. Didn't get to the spa, as that's just not an interest to me. Overall, this was a great place to stay. It was a perfect location for me to get to the office, and to the city center. The front desk staff, restaurant staff and food were absolutely amazing, there's no other way to describe it.

If I have to complain about something, I'd have to lodge a huge complaint against the Tiramisu. It was so delicious that I'll never be able to eat it anywhere else without thinking about GHM's dish ever agin. It's that good!

Room Tip: Bring your drink of choice with you, as the minibar selection is fairly limited.

Thank you very much for your wonderful feedback! In order to thank you I thought to give you the recipe of Tiramisù but our Chef said it is his secret, so you have to come back to taste it again!!
Thanks again.

I was staying for 6 days in the hotel and the service was really good. Staff was very friendly and helpful, you could eat from the park if you bought a drink, at breakfast they made coffee specialities at no extra cost (regular american coffee on the buffet was awful). Rooms were always clean and a nice interior. Next business trip in the area will be again the GHM!!
