    Historic palace is one of Modena's best hotels

    This historic palace now is one of the best hotels in the center. The lobby has 4 rooms full of frescoes and antique furniture. It has a large and private garden with a terrace for breakfast and drinks. Ask for a garden view. I had a man come into my room with his key, so I did not feel safe sleeping. I had even put out a do-not-disturb sign on the door.

    Centrally located old fashion hotel

    This is an old hotel located in a fairly central area. Parking is paid valet. Staff are generally helpful. But hotel is old and old fashioned. Breakfast was a weak spot.

    Friendly, faded elegance!

    This is a very welcoming hotel, set in a grand palazzo and has a kind of faded elegance. In see respects, it's a bit dated, but in a way the only adds to its charm. Staff and polite, helpful and friendly; the location is very good for accessing central Modena, and it's about a 15 - 20 minute walk to the station (or an 8 euro taxi ride).

  • 2.0.Poor


    I had a suite and thought it was rubbish. The location is very good but it's terribly expensive for what it is. The room had no air con... Couldn't get the heating to work... It smelt damp.... Couldn't open the blinds so the room was constantly in the dark..the plug sockets are still the old pre EU standardized 2 hole ones but u can still use them... Just very old. Breakfast was diabolical bearing in mind what I paid for the room.. Breakfast is in the basement but there weren't any direct stairs so had to be escorted by a member of staff to the breakfast lounge waking through parts of the hotel not open to the public. Just rubbish. By the way.. I paid close to £500 for 2 nights.. the renowned 5 star Ritz hotel in London is cheaper

    Not starstruck

    The Canalgrande Hotel is absolutely breathtaking as you enter. The lobby is stunning and the front desk was an enormous help to us during our stay. The remainder of the hotel, while nice to look at, is either wall papered, or literally painted on. The decorations in the room were nonexistent but the walls were painted to give the illusion of molding and ornate designs. It’s a very interesting take on style. And I have yet to determine if I like it or not. The air conditioning kept our room from ever becoming sweltering, but did not ever seem to reach within 10 degrees of our desired temp. The bathroom did not have any type of ventilation aside from opening the window. Which was an issue as it was 40C outside, and two back to back showers left our bathroom feeling like a sauna. We could either open the window to any creature that felt like joining us as well as the 40C air, or we could leave the bathroom door open to release its humidity into our room. I consider this unfortunate. All in all though, it’s a nice place to stay, it just didn’t give me the wow factor that I would expect from a 4 star hotel. The garden outside was nice, though I never saw anyone use it other than an employee on a cigarette break. I will attribute that to the weather though, even I only used it for about 20 minutes.
