Convenient for centre of town

Posted Jun 14, 2014
Pros: Location.
Cons: offer proper non-smoking rooms. and ensure the single rooms are adequate size.
Using the app, had to book a single room because travelling solo, although a double would have been the same price. Room clean (but had been smoked in very recently), but v small and the wardrobe door would not open fully because room so small (other fixed furniture in the way), so limited access to in-room safe. Bathroom clean and spacious. Staff friendly. It was only for one night so I did not ask to be moved, but I would not go back.

Would stay there again, happily

The staff was helpful and polite, the room we had was spacious and comfortable. It's an old building and things are a little worn, but it didn't bother us. The bathroom was clean, the sheets good quality. One of the nights the noise from outside was loud, but it wasn't the hotels fault!

Near great restaurants

Posted Nov 11, 2013 on Hotels.com
The hotel was exactly what we pictured. Very common European room but slightly bigger. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was fine, shower a little small. The staff was helpful and the breakfast was okay. The location was easy to get to from the train station and there was a great juice/health place at the corner and at the other corner there was a row of amazing restaurants.

Very conveniently situated hotel in the old town

Posted Nov 5, 2013
Pros: Central location
Cons: Decor is a little dated
While not having some of the facilities of a larger hotel, Il Canale more than compensates by being in a very good position, close to the sites, restaurants and shops of central Bologna. The hotel is a 10 to 15 minute walk from the main railway station and aerobus stop. We would certainly stay at this hotel again when visiting Bologna.

Overall good experience

Posted Oct 4, 2013
Pros: Staff Cleanliness Location
Cons: Breakfast breads Wifi
Location: Gelateria Great shops and restaurants nearby Near the train station
Overall good experience. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Room was very clean. Hotel is very dated, but this adds to its charm. Breakfast is a traditional Italian hotel breakfast, everything was as to be expected. However, the breads seemed old. I did overhear the front desk mention to a guest the breads were delivered daily, so evidently they are just baked to be hard and stale. Wifi was not working, or I could not get it to work. Really those are my only complaints. great location near shops and main boulevard. I travel to Italy once a year for business and have walked down this main street many times, having no idea this little hotel was in the area. It is next to a sex shop, but ignoring that, location is great. I was traveling alone, and felt perfectly safe. I have stayed larger, nicer hotels in Bologna. But I was pleased with my experience at Il Canale.

Central location - clean room in good condition

Posted Sep 26, 2013
We needed a quad room and were given the ground floor room facing the road - so for privacy not able to open windows or blinds. Staff able to relocate us to a higher floor without problem. Helped to make our stay much more enjoyable. Surprised that access to Internet was expensive when most hotels in other cities offer it for free.
