Bags carried to our rooms and a valet parked the car was a welcome difference. Drinks and included canapés on the rear terrace was peaceful and enjoyable. The rooms with high ceilings and huge windows and shutters over looking a quietish street and people living in their appartments opposite made me feel we really were in an old Italian town.... More

We stayed only one night at the beginning of July to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Modena is a beautiful town -and the Canalgrande is an elegant historic jewel set in the centre. This 16th century Palazzo is in an excellent location to access the duomo and historic centre. Check in was easy and staff charming and helpful. Our room was... More

Hubby and I stayed there for a week last year. We were new (and moving) to the area and this was a great location. The courtyard was beautiful and the hotel is located near the duomo (so in the city center) and near a large park. The staff was very friendly and breakfast was wonderful. Walking distance to tons of... More

Stayed here for my 50th birthday, and we had a wonderful time. This hotel is full of character, with friendly, helpful staff and immaculately maintained rooms. You can eat at their own restaurant, or explore the many fine eateries nearby. Relaxing with a drink prior to an evening in the salon is recommended. The old streets around Corso Canalgrande are...

Traditional hotel not in the first flush or mad youth with excellent service standards. Modena is a nice city to stroll around and this hotel is well placed to do just that. breakfast was highlighted by simply brilliant ham. So close to parma it had to be! A real treat Definitely go back.

We stayed here 2 nights to explore Modena which has a good atmosphere and plenty of interest. The hotel atmosphere however is austere by modern standards but the beautifully adorned bedroom and adjoining bathroom were perfectly acceptable and stocked to a reasonable standard. There is a patio and garden; breakfasts were mediocre and taken indoors. It has to be borne... More

An instant wow as you enter the building, high, painted ceilings and huge oil paintings on the walls in the foyer and the various lounge and breakfast rooms. We were greeted and checked-in by a friendly efficient manager in perfect English, some other staff members spoke very little English, but with our few words of Italian and helpfulness on all...

A grand hotel built within a former palace. Spacious rooms looking out upon a courtyard.. The staff is always helpful. I met the owner and had several excellent conversations with him. There is a restaurant on the property individually owned, which has a Ferrari race car theme. Excellent food. The hotel breakfast buffet is fantastic and the morning staff quickly... More

The inside of this hotel has beautiful artwork everywhere. We arrived before check-in and the staff tagged our bags to be put in our rooms when available so we could check our Modena. They suggested a restaurant that was open for lunch since it was Italy's independence day and most were closed. Great recommendation! Our two rooms were connected by... More
