Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The staff in this hotel are the best. They are friendly and helpful without ever being obsequious. This time I was a returning client and they all seemed to remember me (I hope for the right reasons!!) and although this hotel is not family run, it gives you the feeling that it is. The restaurant is also excellent, again great food and fantastic service. Also, great location.

We really enjoyed this lovely, classic, and extremely comfortable hotel. It is perfectly located for walking everywhere - including the Enzo Ferrari Museum, and excellent restaurants. The rooms are large and well furnished, with spacious bathrooms. We had a lovely view of the garden. Also, very friendly and helpful staff.

Reception courtesy and car valet service outstanding. Breakfast and restaurant are fine. For the rest the hotel is old (not ancient). Need urgently to be refreshed. Value for money is definitely low.

We were upgraded to a luxury suite from a double where the decor had seen better days, and were very comfortable. The breakfast buffet was very lavish and as it was so warm we were able to sit outside on the spacious terrace looking out onto a courtyard garden. The staff were all pleasant and helpful and the receptionist recommended and booked us into an excellent restaurant.

This hotel is filthy. Old, molded rugs are on the floors in hallways and all rooms. The stench is immediately noticed. AC is an RX for Legionnaire's Disease. Other than the lobby, the entire hotel needs to be gutted. THERE IS NOTHING REDEEMABLE HERE AND CHANCES OF SERIOUS ILLNESS ARE EXTREMELY HIGH.

Dear guest, We read very carefully what you report to us taking note of your doubts and we are sorry if you found some shortcomings regarding the cleanliness of our rooms. However, we distance ourselves from your words which we consider to be rather defamatory and which insinuate the possibility of catching serious illnesses in our hotel. We prevent it in the most absolute way that can happen, making sure of it through the implementation of daily cleaning protocols that guarantee healthy and sanitized environments and certify their safety. In any case, we would like to thank you for choosing our hotel and for giving us your contribution which will be useful for us to increase even more attention on this matter. Our best regards Phi Hotel Canalgrande

We loved this hotel! Old with all that goes with it. The staff was phenomenal, the rooms very clean, breakfast very good, garden lovely, great location and the character way beyond expectations. If I wanted boring Holiday Inn USA I would not stay here. Love Italia, love it this old hotel with a history. Mi piace molto e ci tornerei. ( I like it a lot and would return). Grazie a tutti dell’albergo Canalgrande!

The hotel is in a great location in the city centre . Check in was fairly efficient . Sadly the room was a disappointment. The air con could barely cope and the mattress was very worn. The room was clean but in need of a make over . Plenty of toiletries were provided . We booked ( online ) a Sunday night , we were supposed to have a bottle of bubbly and a room upgrade but unfortunately this did not happen and there was no apology . The breakfast was the best we’ve had in Italy . Amazing choice and beautifully presented with attentive staff . We did get our requested parking space but at a cost of 20 euros . With some tlc this hotel could be a real gem .

Dear Doreen, we thank you for being our guests and for writing your review. First of all, we would like to take this opportunity to apologize to you for what happened during your stay and for not having offered you the treatment provided according to the reserved promotion. What occurred was a matter of regret for us, and we would like to let you know that the appropriate steps have been taken so that an inconvenience of this kind will not happen again. We are equally sorry that the arrangement was not to your liking and you encountered shortcomings that do not at all reflect our usual standards. On the other hand, we are very pleased to read that there were other services that were to your liking: the courtesy kits with which we set up our bathrooms; the breakfast, which is varied and of quality in both the savory and sweet portions and above all, the courtesy and professionalism of our staff who always do their best to ensure to our guest the best experience. We will be glad to have another opportunity to host you and show you the attention we have towards our guests and making you choose among the available rooms the one that best meets your tastes and needs. Looking forward to see you soon again we renew our apology and we send you our best greetings. Phi Hotel Canalgrande

Great stay in Modena. The hotel is a charming grand dame. Indeed, some renovation could be done but, all in all, I enjoyed my stay very much. Very friendly staff, fantastic garden and excellent breakfast. The location is perfect with many good restaurants around the corner. Will be back soon.
