Hotel Italia
Ranked #29 of 36 Hotels in Ravenna
Reviewed October 6, 2012

The hotel is located near the train station and the historic city center. Opposite you can find pyadineria (cafe where you can eat Ravenna specialty, called piadina), but we haven't visited it, because at the time we returned from a walk around the city (about nine thirty p.m.) it was already closed . One or two streets behind piadineria there is a good supermarket. The hotel is modern with good sound isolation ( I have not heard the "rumble" of trains from railroad). The hotel has a lift. The room and bathroom unit are clean and spacious. In addition to this I must not its very friendly staff and good breakfast.

I chose this hotel because very good score of visitors, excellent prices and free parking.
He's a great location and a short walk away from the old town.
Internet is paid € 2 an hour which is 21st century really absurd but nothing unusual for Italy.
I recommend a hotel to everyone traveling to Ravenna.

We spent 5 nights here (probably a bit too long for Ravenna, on reflection) but had a great time. The hotel is clean and, as others have said, the location is ideal. Praise is specially due to the reception staff, who were unfailingly friendly, warm and efficient. We didn't notice any dodgy restaurant smells, but enjoyed a spacious room (€55 for a double, and as usual, this was a fraction of the "official" rate advertised in the room), and can concur that the Trattoria La Rustica is a great place to eat. Breakfast was included in our rate and was basic but satisfactory. If anything let the hotel down, it was this. Sunday's croissants had a very Saturday freshness to them. And apparently you have to pay for a second hot drink if you want one!

Useful tip - if, like me, you're a coffee snob, you'll need to be very specific about your coffee order. We asked for cappuccino one morning and it tasted like it had come from a machine (although it hadn't). Caffè latte the next day was a pot of appallingly undrinkable instant muck served with frothed milk in a separate jug. By process of elimination we evolved into ordering a "double espresso with hot milk" and finally received something quite decent.

Wi-fi was €2 an hour, which I used a little, but it always seems rather unnecessarily profiteering of hotels not just to throw it in. There was a friendly bar across the road that offered free wi-fi, and it was a good place (full of locals) to have a reasonably priced drink and do internet at the same time. And they were happy for you to linger with your beer or iced tea for an hour or more at their tables. It had a good feel.

It was too hot to think of using the hotel's bikes (and although we saw them, there was no publicity about them), but we walked everywhere, except to Classe, and the bus going there leaves from the station nearby.

We'd happily stay here again. The hotel is right by the railway lines and our room had a charming view of the tracks which caused us a little worry, but in fact, the sound-proofing is good and the trains don't seem to run at night. We may have heard one train per night, but that's a trivial disruption compared with traffic and neighbours we've experienced elsewhere occasionally.

Great value for money!!! €34 for a double room breakfast included. Free wifi. Walking distance to the monuments of Ravenna. The "Trattoria La Rustica" is a good option for dinner, 2 minutes walking.

The hotel is not in the best location - just up the road from the station and next to a very smelly Vietnamese restaurant. Once inside, it's nice and friendly. Breakfasts are not good, and rather chaotic with staff rushing around trying to clean tables.

Sitting next to the train station you really couldn't get much closer to the centre of everything in Ravenna on such a small budget. The staff were really freindly and welcoming and the room was of a decent size, but maybe a little cramped with four adults. We didn't really trust the sofa turned bunk-bed so we took out the bottom mattress and just laid it in the middle of the room.

I was a little concerned the sound of trains outside would be an issue but after a certain time (about 9pm, something like that) they just seemed to stop, which was nice.

Right by the train station and only a few minutes walk to the centre of Ravenna. Very friendly staff and simple but decent breakfast spread. This was my 3rd time to stay here and will do so again on my next trip to Ravenna.
