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.
