This hotel is in a good location, convenient to shopping, good restaurants, and local sights (e.g., Basilica di Saint Appolinare Nuovo). My wife likes to walk a lot and found the walking near the B&B very pleasant. The room is very nice, and the bed is comfortable. The hotel is easy to get to using car and Google Maps; it’s located on Piazzetta Gandhi. There is on-site parking. To get to the room, there is a moderate flight of stairs to the rooms immediately adjacent to the office, and another flight (or elevator) to get to the other rooms. The owner (and manager), Michael, is very friendly and helpful and has a good stock of local guidebooks, which are free to borrow.

The good:

We really liked the location of this place. It’s perfect for sightseeing , restaurants and shops. Parking was very easy and cheap too. Spacious rooms with efficient air conditioners. King bed which is rare in hotels in Italy. Nice host.

The not so good,

We stayed in the attic room and while it was a large room, it seemed a little clutter. Too much outdated/unfit furniture. There were probably at least 14 chairs and hundreds of magazines in the room which made us feel like we were sleeping in the storage.

Breakfast was very weak considered it is classified as B&B. There were very little cold meat that cut paper thin, cereal, yogurt, fruit some of which was half rotten.

The other rooms might have been less clutter, and if you don’t care about breakfast, it is a great place to stay.

Dear Trinh P,
thank you for your nice words about M Club and the staff.
About the room we want to create a real old room Italian style and not International Style like the new hotels and new B&B.
Our furniture are antiques and comes all from my family from generations, very rare and precious, and the must of chairs, divided in two rooms, are in the part of the room where you can’t stand up, with a project well-defined from the interior design. The chairs are: 1 sofa and four armchairs of 19th century, 2 armchairs Wassily from Marcel Breuer, and the rest antiques chairs of 18th century.
Is not a storage, but the architect have designed it in theme with the old building (1452 !) and, I repeat, with antiques real chairs, tables and sofa.
In Europe, and especially in Italy, we like to live with the old history of our houses.
The pictures in our web site are clear and explains the ambient; if you don’t like this type of design you can choose another room in our B&B or, at least, another location.
About the hundred of magazines there are a rare collection of National Geographic (American magazine) from 1891 and rare magazines about travel and mode. We do that for our guests for create an ambient warm and family.
We are very sorry if you don’t have feel well, but is the first time in 12 years that someone write this.
I hope that you have been well in our M Club, despite “the 14 chairs of which 1 sofa and 6 armchairs”
Have nice time
Michael Scapini
Innkeeper and Owner of M Club

This is the place to stay. Lovely B&B near everything. Michael is the owner. He takes great pride in his home. The room tastefully decorated with modern conveniences. Good breakfast spread. Michael is very helpful, friendly and accommodating. Cost more than reasonable. I give it my highest recommendation.

From the minute we booked to the minute we arrived (and beyond) Michael was the consummate host provide advice and guidance on this most amazing city. He responded to all our emails promptly explaining everything from options for transfer from airport to the hotel through to the must see sites as well as a variety of local restaurants. He knows his stuff. It is evident from the immaculately presented boutique B&B come family home, to the tastefully decorated themed rooms and the cleanliness of the hotel that Michael takes exceptional pride in what he does. Having run the hotel since 2006 he certainly knows how to cater for his guests and not leave them wanting.

We had the top two rooms themed English and India. Spacious, bright and airy and equipped with a jack and jill bathroom there was plenty of room for a family of 4 adults. our room even had a cot although we are beyond that now! Lovely clean bathroom with large double shower. Both rooms had air conditioning units, sky TV (Italian only) with BBC News but then again we didn't come all this way to watch TV. The room would have benefited from Tea and Coffee making services (you know us Brits) and the rooms are plenty spacious enough to accommodate. Plenty of towels and having two women in tow, plenty of sockets for electrical equipment (although we always travel with a 4 gang extension just in case). The rooms, being in the loft space did not have a view but the character of the authentic beams and wooden ceilings and floors added a warm charm and a degree of privacy too. There are velux roof lights to add plenty of light into the room during the day.

We flew into Bologna airport and took the Shuttlecrab bus to Ravenna train station (€25 single if paying on bus). These run hourly and are significantly quicker than train and cheaper than a taxi. From Ravenna train station we jumped in a taxi to the hotel (€7 single trip) but this is an easy walk if you fancy lugging your cases through the streets. We took the same transport options back to the airport.

Location wise the hotel cannot be beaten. Simply step out of the front door, turn right and right again onto Via Cavour straight into the city centre. All of the main sites are wiithin 20 mins walking distance of the hotel. Whilst the streets are cobbled, the entire city is flat so even in the height of summer none of the walks are tiring and we managed to see Basilica Di S.Vitale, Mausoleo Di Galla Placidia, Battistero Degli Ariana & Neoniano, Cappella Di S.Andre and the Basilica Di S.Apollinare Nuovo as well as the Museo Del Rigorgimento. None of the attractions were overly packed and we spent plenty of time admiring the mosaics. Ticket price for the main attraction is €9 (€7 for students) and that entitles you to visit all of the main Unesco World Heritage sites (of which there are 8 in total although we only managed 6 as 2 of them were too far off the beaten track and we ran out of time).

Restaurants, tapas and bars a plenty in Ravenna on every street and every square. Expect to pay around €6 for a glass of Chianti or similar, €7 for a cocktail, €4 for branded beers such as Morreti. We ate at Restaurante Gardela (pasta), Osteria Pastella (fish) and finally Taberna Boaria (meat). Expect to pay on average €60-70 at these restaurants for 3 adults including wine (2 courses). We didn't bother with deserts in the restaurants simply because we liked to grab an ice cream from one of the many gelato shops and walk around the narrow streets in the cool of the evening watching the world go by.

Being a world heritage centre it comes as no surprise that historical artwork and mosaics adorn practically every building. We didn't hire a tour guide, instead preferring to read the many information plaques explaining the back story. Probably missed out on more of the culture and historical meaning behind some of the mosaic pieces so if that's your thing then a guide would probably be a better option (at cost).

On our final day we decided to take a short bus ride to the Marina Di Ravenna and spent some time on the beach. As you would expect for a Sunday it was very busy but a welcome break from trekking around the city itself. The bus takes approx 25 mins each way and a single ticket purchased on the bus was €3 (vs €2.10 if purchased in one of the many Tobacco shops - just look for the T). Tickets are valid for 1 hour from activation which you do on the bus.

Ravenna is a quaint city, with mosaics of every type and colour each of significant historical importance. Personally not in the same artistic league as Rome or Florence but, if like ourselves, you have taken it upon yourself to tick off all the main Italian cities then it is definitely worth a visit.

Room tip: Personally if you prefer space over outlook then I recommend the attic rooms. Very quiet, very traditional and very spacious.

The location is absolutely perfect. Right at the start of the pedestrian zone. You could not have a better spot.

The accommodation itself is lovely. We were in the white room which was lovely. It was one of our best sleeps so far on this trip. The room was very spacious which doesn't always happen in Europe.

Michael was a delightful host always ensuring we had everything we needed. His dinner recommendation was spot on.

The breakfast room is charming. The cappuccino was fantastic.

A lovely spot and for any future trips to Ravenna, we would stay here again.
