Stayed at the Canale Hotel for 2 night with my friend. We had a huge room on the ground floor and although we were afaid that it might be noisy it was absolutely quite. The beds were big and comfy, the bathroom immaculately clean and the staff very friendly and helpful. I really enjoyed the tamarind juice during breakfast and... More

Very good location, a few steps away from Via Indipendenza. Very good value for money. Breakfast could have been a little more varied; however it was good and sufficient and fresh fruit was included daily. Clean room. We would go there again.

This hotel was recommend by an upscale travel website as a reasonably priced option. Although my stay wasn't bad, it wasn't good either. The wifi was out during my stay, which was quite frustrating. The room was clean & a good size. Unfortunately, the staff wasn't very helpful or friendly.

I returned to the Il Canale Hotel in October 2013 and had ones again a pleasant stay. Silent and clean room, good breakfast, centrally located, informal but helpful staff and good value for money. I will stay again!

We went to Bologna for 3 days, last minute for a fair at the Bologna Fiere. All the hotels from the entire surroundings of Bologna were fully booked for months. Hopefully we managed to book a room here. The room was very good a bit too big for us because it was a "Superior Double" so we actually had two... More

I chose this hotel for its location close to the centre of Bologna and good value, it more than fulfilled expectations. Arriving at the hotel, check in was very straightforward and the room was big and well equipped. One comment is the size of the lift, very often these are so small that only one person and luggage can use... More

Centrally located, 5 mins from the Piazza Maggiore. Nice beds! We had a big room but with very little daylight. Service but some people at the desk nearly no English. Why is that so on Italy? Lots of people in the service sector speak poor English. A bit of painting and a shower curtain in our room would be nice!

It's a small old hotel just in the center of Bologna. Rooms are always clean. Breakfast is satisfying and people are friendly and helpful. If you are looking for a comfortable bed in a quiet place just in the middle of the city at a walking distance to everywhere this is the place you are looking for.

We arrived in Bologna by train and when we got to this hotel we were told that they were overbooked. They had already made arrangements to transfer us to another hotel close by. Obviously, I didn't actually stay at the hotel so can't add much, except to say that the overbooking was actually an error by our booking agency, rather... More

Finding this hotel was a bit challenging when we arrived in Bologna. When I went to check in I was told we were moved to another hotel by the staff. She gave me a map, created by the hotel, to direct us to the other hotel and their respective parking. The streets were not accurate and she was not very... More
