“Comfortable hotel and great staff”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

Our hotel in Ravenna was very comfortable and clean and we were upgraded to a suite at no extra cost.

The best part of the stay was the very warm welcome we had from a young gentleman who spoke very good English and French. He gave us guidance on what to see in Ravenna, gave us bottled water for the room and even gave us some peaches from the lovely orchard surrounding the property.

You need to know that this hotel is a few kilometers out of town, so a car is an absolute necessity. But the trip into town was easy and we had good advice from the hotel on where to park economically close to the main sites. If you stay in the town you may have to move your car to the same parking lot as the town is mainly a pedestrian zone.

On the following morning, we had a very nice breakfast on the terrace of the hotel before leaving.

The name is rather misleading, as the hotel is not "antica" (the Italian word for ancient) but rather modern. The rooms are of a good size and comfortable, albeit rather small bathrooms. Staff at reception are exceptionally friendly and all speak very good English, so one doesn't have to try one's poor Italian. The only disadvantage is its location which is quite far from the city center and the many local attractions.

This was a lovely hotel with apart hotel possibilities. The rooms were clean fresh and spacious with simple kitchen facilities. There was a nice breakfast available and at 5 euro it was a bargain. Close by supermarket and easy access to Ravenna town if you have a car.

Stayed here for two nights en route to other cities. As we were driving chose hotel just outside city. No GPS, using the old brain and map. Found it with little trouble and loved the location. Upon arrival we were offered refreshment before being shown to our super apartment. Omar couldn't have been more helpful and gave us so much information. A very pleasant 25 minute walk into the centre. Breakfast buffet was excellent and we had cherries straight from the trees to the breakfast bowl. When we were leaving Omar printed out Google maps for us so we could get on the right road to visit St Apollinare in Classe before heading off to Ferrara. Clean, comfortable and the added advantage of a washing machine downstairs which was a blessing for us on our month of travels. Would definitely return.

Stayed here two nights on a recent trip through Northern Italy. Stayed in a two-room apartment at this hotel, with a kitchen and a full array of cooking and eating utensils. Situated on a busy street, but not too noisy. Chirping birds and flowering fruit trees were lovely. If using a GPS device to try to find this hotel, be sure to enter "Viale" rather than "Via" for the address. "Via" will not be found through the Garmin software. Took us one and a quarter hours to find the place after having finally asked at a Holiday Inn! The hotel's return e-mail address uses "Via," not "Viale." When I complained about this to the otherwise very helpful man at the front desk, he sort of shrugged it off, saying something like, "This is Italy." Expect to pray for your nights up front. Very helpful directions to very inexpensive parking lots in the city. Ravenna is not to be missed for its mosaics and nearby excellent seafood. This was a very good stay at a very good hotel.

We were expecting a roadside motel and were wonderfully surprised. This lovely hotel was so much more than we imagined. Also, the location was very convenient to anything you might want to see in Ravenna. We were offered coffee quickly upon our arrival. The front desk staff was amazing, helpful and sweet as could be. They offered dining suggestions along with a map and discounts cards too. They were eager to help with any questions we had. The room had an attached cooking (optional) and dining area, plus a balcony. All was spotless and in excellent condition! Bikes were available to those who still had the energy to peddle. The morning breakfast buffet offered pastries, meats, cheeses, fruits and coffee/tea. On top of all this, the price was extremely reasonable. I wish we could find places like this more often.

This family-run, immaculate hotel is conveniently located: the hotel lets its customers use their bicyles for free to get around Ravenna, which is the ideal way to see the city, since much of the center is closed off to car traffic, and the many one-way and car-free streets can be exasperating. Our apartment had air-conitioning that worked, and screens (a rarity in Italy), as well as a balcony with a little clothes-line where one could hang out laundry. The property itself abounds with fruit and olive trees, and the owners pick fresh fruit every morning, which they offer to their guests. The cleaning service is also top notch and regular. Although we opted to have breakfast in our apartment, the hotel also provides a plentiful fresh selection. We have been going to Ravenna for the past 15 years, and would definitely return to the Antica Residence!
