“Functional not fancy, good location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2012 via mobile

Pros: very good location, breakfast was fine, beds okay, bathroom very clean, good value
Cons: Room was noisy (restaurant or bar patrons strolling past the hotel), hotel decor very utilitarian, a bit of maze to reach by car

The staff is very welcoming and helpful. We opted for the standard room over the economy as the space difference was notable, well worth the extra 15 euros. Also the larger room had a wonderful bathroom, spotlessly clean and well designed.
Breakfast room was pleasant with lots of choices. It's always hard to get a second cup of coffee in Italy though!!
Good restaurants nearby and all the important sites are within walking distance.
Hotel located in a pedestrian only zone so no street noice to contend with.
All in all a great place to stay at a fair price for the services provided.

Room Tip: Go for the standard room not the economy.....much better lay out and large well designed bathroom, a...

We spent 2 nights at the Hotel Centrale Bryon in Ravenna. It was very clean, the rooms were well laid out (we'd asked for a 3rd bed in each room) AND they had air conditioning which was wonderful. Italy was very hot in early September. The breakfast room downstairs was nice and had a great variety. The best part was the hotel was right in the middle of everything downtown. It was actually an easy walk from the train station, though we took a taxi with all our luggage. And it was an easy walk to shopping and the mosaics sites we'd come to see. And the mosaics were AMAZING. I'd stay there again without any hesitation. When we left we were headed to Venice, but the trains were going to be on strike. So the front desk made a call and found us a van (there were 8 of us) to drive us to Vencie for 1/2 the cost of the vans we'd found on line. I think the van rental groups who cater to the cruise ship passengers really overcharge.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2011

The hotel is clean and well maintained in an ideal location. The staff are friendly and speak enough English to communicate. Breakfast buffet was perfectly nice.

My bathroom was very compact but the furniture in the room was fine for a 3*. The area around is the lively part of Ravenna's not-terribly-lively old centre, which means proximity to decent restaurants but also the possibility of some background noise and music from bars (which are not directly underneath but in adjacent streets, so I found it tolerable).

I would echo the previous comments that San Appollinaro in Classe is a must-see for its wonderful mosaics. Pick up a map from the hotel desk and walk 5 minutes to Piazza Caduti, where you can buy bus tickets from the bar next to the stop, or the newspaper kiosk on the other side of the square. You need to catch bus number 4 or 44 (4A, 4B etc. is fine).

Very clean and modern hotel, nice breakfast buffet, and central location made it a great place to stay. Odd system for using wireless - they dole it out 3 hours at a time, but it was free and reliable. At the top of my price range, but I would probably stay there again. If you are there for the mosiaics (and you really should be), I highly recommend the short bus trip out of town to see those at San Appolinare in Classe (the bus winds around a bit, so wait until you get right up to the Basilica before getting off).

The hotel was clean and the location is the best I could ask for. I walked everywhere besides sant apollinare in classe and I only stayed for 1 full day (2nights). Easy to get to the train station as well. The breakfast left something to be desired. The coffee was perhaps the worse I have ever tasted. But, I was not there for the free breakfast, or even chose this hotel because it had breakfast. This hotel is PRIME for location and price! I Walk out the front door of the hotel and you are in the center. felt I got a lot for what I payed for...besides any TV channels in English. The people at the front desk were very nice, but they were not exactly fluent in English. However, I got my point across just fine. Also, they have free wifi. But you need to ask for the username and password and they give you like 2 hours before it expires and you need to ask again. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to spend time in Ravenna.
