Good, small hotel near San Vitale in pedestrian area.

This 7 room hotel is one block from the lovely old piazza - the one with the big clock in it. The Cappello is in a very old yet recently renovated building about 4 blocks from San Vitale, in a pedestrian-only zone. It is very small, but the decor is that remarkable sort of Italian style that blends edgy halogen-lit modernism with old-world colors, fabrics and elegance. It's got a bit of a B&B feel; they give you a key if you're out really late, but we never had to use it.

Our room for 3 (2 adults and a 5 year old girl) was huge ... actually 2 big rooms with a bath suite adjoining. There are two lovely looking restaurants downstairs, but we had so many other recommedations, we never ate there. Probably our loss. There is parking available with a garage that is 2 blocks away, which was certainly convenient enough. We liked this place a lot!

Hard to find, but central to everything in Ravenna, built in a medieval tower. {3 star}

This is a modern hotel built onto a medieval tower in central Ravenna. We stayed in a junior suite, which cost a bit more but gave us a larger room and a very nice bathroom. There seem to be very few rooms in the hotel. While the hotel has an elevator, our room was one flight ABOVE the top floor of the elevator, making it tough for the disabled to reach the floor.

There is no "official" check-in desk, and it was hard to find the person in charge (as it turns out, she was at the bar below), but once we did, check-in was nice. Driving to the hotel was difficult, and parking was impossible. The breakfast was nice in their sunny breakfast room. Wonderful little library near the check-in spot on the 2nd floor to go over Ravenna materials.
