After a huge disappointment we had (me and my friends) with regards to our prebooked hotel in Bologna upon arrival, we decided to go out for a quick stroll.
Then we found Il Canale by accident!
Giuseppe at the reception by that time, and also the owner of the hotel, gave us the s

The owners/staff at Il Canale were so wonderful and added so much to our stay in Bologna. They were really helpful with getting around town, and made fantastic restaurant recommendations. We had a memorable meal at Trattoria Oberdan da Mario and even received a discount because

I was looking for a hotel in Bologna for 3 nights and started looking on a website, Booking.com. When I started I immediately got a message, "all hotels heavily booked". Whilst looking at Il Canale came another message, " only 1 room left for these dates". Stupidly I panicked b

Good afternoon Mr. Houston, we are sorry to read your words and it is necessary to replay about your complaints. First of all, everywhere the price of the rooms changes every day and it is absolutely normal that the rates are more high when there is a festivity, a particular event, a concert ... in Bologna especially when there is the trade fair (Bologna is famous for the fairs). You stayed here last year during the period of one of the most important fair of the city ("CERSAIE") and this is the reason of the high price (and certainly you have chosen our Hotel for the more convenient price compared to the other hotels in the center). The other problem is that you have chosen a “Not Refoundable Rate”. With this rate is not possible to change because: the price is different from the rate with the free cancellation; there is the prepayment from the Hotel and from Booking to block the room; and especially because you stopped a room during the period of the fear! In any case, we are sorry for what happened but we suggest you to control and read everything before to make a reservation with a website and remember you can always call directly the Hotel for having all the information you need……BEFORE TO CHOOSE SOMETHING NOT REFOUNDABLE (but this are things that an experienced traveler - like you say to be – should know…)!

We only stayed here one night but still loved our stay!
The location is unbeatable, right in the centre of Bologna. The staff are friendly, the room was great, the bathroom more spacious than we expected and everything was clean.
Our room was located on the ground floor right nex

Does the shuttle bus from the airport stop at the train station near to the hotel?
Yes - no more than a 10 minute walk. The shuttle bus stops at the station; that’s where you need to get off. From there it’s a straight line into the town centre - the hotel’s on your left...

I see the hotel doesn't have parking but there is paid parking close by. Is it expensive?
Dear Lisa we are 150mt far to "Piazza XIII agosto" parking. The cost for 24 hours is 20€. Thankyou for the request. Hotel Il Canale

Does the quadruple room have 2 queen sized beds? The picture on trip advisor seems to show 1 queen and 1 single for both the Triple room and the Quadruple room.
In the quadruple rooms there are 2 single beds and 1 double.

"We had a ground floor room overlooking the canal which was nice - but be prepared - the weather was warm and there were a few mosquitos.."
"Downstairs family room is large - easily slept a family of 5"
"They have small single rooms, which suited my needs perfectly"
"Great location. Affordable price."
"Downstairs family room good for elderly or disabled as well as family."
