We really enjoyed our stay. The rooms were comfortable and the highlight was the amazing breakfast buffet. While most buffets we had on our 8 day trip were merely average, this one was outstanding. They make their own baked goods on site which you can smell as you approach the buffet. Really, really tasty food which makes for an excellent... More

We drove a little from Milano for a trip to the Tuscan Region. Its right off the highway, although off it just enough for it to be a little hard to find. We asked directions at the local Agip gas station & bar where i had to dust off my rusty Italian pretty fast. The room was very nice and... More

Easy parking, easy access, full services, well trained staff. We were particularly impressed by the professionalism of Mirco at the front desk. We decided to dine in and were treated like royalty by Marco in the dining room, including some superb parmeggiano reggiano and balsamic. Will use this best western again either on a road trip or business

Pros: free parking, nice continental breakfast, restaurant staff were very polite, approx 25 min walk into Parma, clean hotel. Cons: room was boiling hot (top floor) and the hotel does not offer air con or a fan to hire, swimming pool was out of action, front desk reception staff weren't particularly welcoming, ladies of the night working on the street...

Cleaning smells caused us to leave, we checked 3 rooms they were all the same. Even with the door to the balcony open the smell caused my eyes to water, we checked three other rooms they were the same, all with a harsh cleaning solution smell. The hotels location is not the best for a visit to Parma, not a... More

This hotel is near the Malpensa airport in Milan and caters to the one-night before flight crowd. Don't expect much more than a small room with a bed, very small bathroom and a breakfast. They have a bar with snacks and some sandwiches and a breakfast room that starts at 0430 in the morning and a shuttle to the airport... More

Dear Sir, thank you for your opinion, but I have the suspect you wrote it thinking about an hotel in Milan, 178 km from Parma, where we are. Anyway we hope we will have the pleasure to welcome you in our hotel. Best regards Francesco Incerti More

We stayed here for one night on a trip to Italy. The staff is very nice, which is great after a long drive. Cooling down in the swimming pool is also positive. You can eat in the hotel, but the center of Parma is only a 20 minute walk. Buy a pizza, some soda and picknick in front of the... More

Nice hotel with good staff and a great breakfast. Lots of choice and plenty to eat. A bit off the beaten track but quiet as a result. Room a bit worm and air con not the best. Pool small but enough for our needs

Close to the "Autostrada" (approx 5 km), very clean, new, large room, good breakfast (with a BIO corner!!!) and not expensive at all. Very friendly people at the front desk! Even the small outdoor area looks nice (pool and some tables). All in all a good choice.

Check-in was handled expediently and we were issued the key from "family room" on 2nd floor. We tried to use the internet but as it was... More
