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

This hotel is terrific in its location, just off the Via Independezia and halfway between the railway station of Bologna Centrale and Piazza Maggiore. Its a small place, and check in was a breeze. 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

Our in room safe did not work. The beds are very old as the mattress springs are palpable upon laying on it. The... 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!

We had a 2-room suite for 4 people. The room and bathroom was clean, spacious and nicely decorated with a view on the canal. The staff was helpful and friendly. The complementary breakfast was ok, but in the basement. Great place for a trip to Bologna as everything is within walking distance. Parking in a public garage near by.

Our trip to Bologna was amazing and the hotel stay was perfect. The location of this hotel is spot on. Being in the historic part of the city was great with easy access to the airport shuttle bus, surrounded by good places to eat, drink and shop. We found the staff to be very friendly and helpful.
