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

My husband and I have just arrived home from a four nights stay in Bologna at Zanhotel Il Canale. The rooms are small but very clean, as is the bathroom. Clean sheets and towels every day. The staff are very helpful and accommodating and always greet you with a smile. Breakfast was adequate for a start to your day. It... More

We spent two nights at Il Canale. The hotel is extremely well located, just a few steps away from Via Indipendenza and Piazza Maggiore. Our room was quite small, hot, rather dark, but quite. The bathroom was large and clean. Breakfast was fine, though quite standard. Service staff was very helpful and efficient. Parking is an issue. All in all,... More

We stayed at Il Canale Hotel for almost a week and found it very central, very quiet and very pleasant. The room was spacious, had shower (and no bath) and was nicely decorated, The heater worked perfectly and that was very appreciable as it was anormally cold outside... We had a nice view on Il Canale and on old buildings... More
