    No major problems, but a few minor points: the single room was very small; some of the staff seemed a bit casual in their approach; and the wi-fi was reliable only in part of the room, and not the part where the power point was.

    Great location, next door to the railway station and an easy walk from the sights of Ravenna. A reasonable 3-star hotel, with a good breakfast, a lift, fridge, and a bed with actual sheets - a rarity in the age of doonas.

    The staff spoke pure English but it didn't create us problem. The towels in the bathroom were somehow very thin and more like sheets.

    Very good location - 2 minutes from the railway station. The historic center is 5-10 min away and Coop supermarket is 5 min away. The room was large enough for a comfortable stay with all the amenities needed and air conditioning. The breakfast was European style, no pancakes and crumbled eggs. They prepared us very tasty cappuccino and cacao. They also offer bottled juice (not instance ones). The staff tried to be helpful. The WiFi was good as well.
