Perfect location, nice people and romantic atmosphere 👌 Totally recommend it! During our 3 days trip to Bologna we stayed in a spacious room that had a kingsize bed and a very elegant-retro design 👑 It's all that you need!

Stayed at the Il Canale while in Bologna for work. Its an older hotel that is under new ownership. Apparently the previous owner didnt have happy clientele. I stayed for two nights and found the small staff to be extrordinarily interested in the well being of the guests. Every time Guiseppe passed us he asked if we were okay. The... More

The hotel is perfect for anyone looking for an authentic experience in the centre of Bologna. Very easily reachable from the train station and walking distance from everything you can desire from a weekend in Bologna. Giuseppe and his staff add the touch of a family run hotel, always extremely helpful and up for a laugh. I would recommend to... More

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
