4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Lovely old fashioned Italian hotel. Great location. Parked car for us - lovely doorman (husband temporarily unable to walk). Lovely staff. Great quality sheets and towels. Super clean We would come again

Perfect location, quiet, big comfortable room with giant bathroom. Gourmet dinner available. Absolutely complete breakfast, congratulations! The building is old but well maintained and has spacious gardens to relax and interesting corners. Very good and cordial staff, attention and service. Parking available.

We spent one night here during an Italy/Croatia road trip, and it was a great staging ground for exploring Modena. Hotel was fairly basic but service was friendly and excellent. Secure garage parking on site was important for us and they delivered.

The Canalgrande is a lovely old building, but it is a bit dated. The room was comfortable, but the air conditioner was on one wall and didn’t quite cool the room down. The location was good and close to everything we wanted to see and there was a cool street very close with restaurants, cafes and bars. The breakfast spread was quite big but left a bit to be desired and didn’t have toast, just dinner rolls.

Charming hotel, with a GREAT breakfast (great breads, pastries, scrambled eggs & bacon, yogurts & oatmeal, corn flakes, nuts, fruit, fresh squeezed juices, crisp bread, meats, cheese, etc.), delightful staff, beautiful terrace and garden and great location. My husband solved the very prominent bed springs by putting a blanket triple folded under the bottom sheet. We really enjoyed our stay.

This is a very smart comfortable hotel. It is traditional old-fashioned class worth proper service right from arrival. Rooms are comfortable with a decent shower, air conditioning which is easily managed and switched off if you like real air and an open window. I had a wonderful night. I like to have breakfast in comfort, that means quiet, good choice and with real napkins. This hotel has all that along with friendly service and excellent cappuccino. The great plus is the beautiful well maintained private garden. What a superb place to relax. Wish I could have stayed longer, will definitely come back!

The weather was so horrible, (cold and rainy) that we spent much more time in the hotel than we might have. I must say that the seating areas downstairs are most hospitable! There are various rooms available and although the garden is beautiful, in the cold and rain it wasn’t a place to spend time! The people in the hotel are most welcoming and the location is perfect. The restaurant was closed during our visit, but the front desk was very helpful in making reservations when needed. The hotel itself is beautiful and made up for being stuck indoors. I can’t give another star as at breakfast when things are finished, that’s it...

We stayed only for 1 night but could have easily stayed for more. The hotel is located within walking distance of the cafes and restaurants and the concierge gave us a great recommendation for a casual, authentic restaurant. The bed was extremely comfortable and there was no noise from the street to interrupt our sleep as the hotel is a block or so back from the main square. The bathroom was spotless and a bit separate to the room - almost suite like in the set up I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who is thinking of staying. The breakfast had a great range of savoury and sweet selections including fresh fruit

Fantastic hotel in a historical building in the centre of Modena. Warm welcoming, beautiful rooms, perfect cleaning. I particularly enjoyed the delicious croissants, home-made cakes and fresh fruit for breakfast. Useful private parking available. Highly recommended

This is one of those places that you think a hotel should be when traveling in Italy. The lobby area has polished wood and huge paintings, the desk is beautifully crafted with old world charm. The hotel is conveniently located within a 5 minute walk of the center of town--however it is about a 20 minute walk to the train station--better you should take a cab with your luggage. The cab should run around 7-8 euro. The rooms are clean and efficient, and were remodeled at some point not too far back. There is a beautiful terrace in the back of the hotel that is perfect for relaxation on a warm day. Breakfast is held in the basement. The selection is wide-ranging, although over the 5 day stay that we just had, there wasn't much change. The room rates are very reasonable for a downtown hotel.
