Zanhotel Il Canale was worth the money. Great location! Hotel owner was very helpfull and friendly. Room was clean and cute. Breakfast was typical small buffet with three different types of croissants, white bread, cheese and ham, yogurt and fruits, coffee, tea and two different fresh juices.

The room was comfortable, clean and pleasant. extremely well priced for a central hotel. The manager could not have been more helpful, showing us around the hotle, ordering taxis, making restaurant reservations etc. He even ran us to the airport on the morning we were leaving.

Il Canale Hotel was a great experience in the centre of Bologna for two girlfriends traveling together. It was neat and clean, the staff were kind and helpful, and the furnishings offered comfort after long days of touring. The location was great for the things we had planned for the city; the rough part was the alley onto which it... More

To be honest the other reviews sum this up pretty well. Positives: Location is good (but Bologna is small so any hotel in the city centre is going to have a good location) Breakfast (which is essentially in the basement) but it is lovely, simple but good quality of fresh food each day. Clean hotel, room, bathroom sheets etc.. Unlimited... More

This hotel is located by many of the great tourist sites of Bologna. However, it is also located immediately next to a Sex Boutique and in a sketchy alley covered in graffiti. The staff was, for the most part unhelpful. We ask for help making reservations and a few extra blanket and pillows for our room and were met with... More

The reception lady was extremely friendly and though she couldn't spk much English she went out of her way to answer our queries about her city.... More

This is an unpretentious but comfortable little hotel which is perfectly situated in a side road off Via Independienza, about mid way between Bologna Centrale railway station and Piazza Maggiore. Our room was a good size, with a spacious and spotlessly clean bathroom. Unusually high quality bed linen and towels and a very comfortable bed was a bonus that you... More

Location couldn't be better, the hotel doesn't look much from the outside but the rooms are lovely and big. The breakfast wasn't great. If your in Bologna there is a map that includes a tour of the city it's definitely worth doing!
