  • Group of friends
    5.4

    The staff were accommodating and allowed us to switch to their sister hotel when we complained that our room was unacceptable.

    The air conditioning did not work and it was cooler outside that inside the room. Also the carpet was not cleaned and had bread crumbs all over the floor.

  • Older travelers

    Hotel staff was great ang frindly. Location was amazing, in the middle of everything and still not noicy place at all for a good sleep.

    I didn't like the smell from the sewers.

    right in the center of Bologna but the hotel is a small street away from the traffic, the hotel staff, and especially the lady at the reception are extremely helpfull and friendly

  • Older travelers

    Everything was fine and everyone was friendly and spoke and understood english well. The breakfast was quite good and plentyfull unless you got there after 8;30 or later.

    Our only problem was an odor from the toilet now and then. It wasn't very strong, but unpleasant, of course. Mr. & Mrs. B.C. Winn San Francisco, CA

  • Older travelers

    The staff was really friendly and helpfull and the location of the hotel is wonderful, just a 5 minute walk to the Piazza Maggiore so right in the centre of Bologna and also only a 10 minute walk to the train station. We had a really nice spacious room with spacious bathroom (don't know how big the other rooms are). We had a wonderful stay, a bit of business and the rest leisure, we've been to Bologna several times before and it is a fantastic city!

    Good location and accessibility. We have stayed in room no 3 which is above the canale and has a great view. Staff friendly.

    Central location.

    The street was run down with a sex shop next to the hotel. The decor was dated and covers were stained.Not good for families. Breakfast room was a dingy basement although the lady there was friendly.

    Central Location

    Orange room! Slightly dingy breakfast room

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    The accessibility to the Old City and sights of Bolonga were excellent and the staff helpful

    The lack of facilities for making a hot drink in the room and a bath would have been nice

  • Older travelers

    Right in the center, super buffet breakfast, very clean and spacious room.

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    Excellent location near the main shopping street, many bars and trattorias and the main square, too. Wonderful towels in the bathroom, nice colours, nice cleaning service. Breakfast ok. Personnel very good and helpful.

    Double room a was smaller than expected, and a bit dark. Air conditioning was a practically useless. No bathing slippers (mentioned in the reservation situation).

  • Couple
    7.8

    The hotel was in an ideal location for exploring Bologna. Our room was spacious and had a view over one of the city's hidden canals. The staff were very friendly and helpful and as it is a small hotel the front door was often locked so security was good.

    The room could do with being redecorated and the breakfast room was cramped.

  • Family with children
    10.0

    Excellent location, very reasonable prices, very clean and spacious rooms and renovated bathrooms.

    Room 24 had a stange heavy smell. Probably there was lack of proper ventilation.

  • Single
    8.2

    Zanhotel Il Canale was a pleasant place to stay in Bologna. We ordered a triple room and had two seperate rooms, a single and a double in the one suite. The bathroom was large with a good shower. This suited our party of three adults perfectly. Staff were helpful. Breakfast sufficient but not the best we have had in our travels. Well placed to visit all the sights and shopping.

    Nothing negative really, suited our purposes at a reasonable rate
