We booked this particular hotel as it seemed easy to access from Milan airport and it stated that parking was available. This was particularly important as my father has mobility problems and we needed to ensure parking was available which it was, plus we were able to bring the car up to the main entrance for easier access.

We stayed in a standard double with single beds. The room was a nice size with a modern style. There was an odor typical of when vacuuming with a dirty bag but it was not overwhelming enough for me to complain or to have to change rooms. The beds were a bit hard for my liking and the same for... More

We stayed here one night en-route from our home in Italy to our home in York. It was our first stay and we chose it for its proximity to the City centre and the fact that, as Best Western hotels do generally, it welcomes dogs. The downside first, simply that it is an uninspiring location if you want country views... More

Travelling from Geneva to Florence, this was a good choice for an overnight stay. Special mention must go to Marco in the restaurant who was great with all the family. Clean and efficient, no problems

The hotel is right in the center and has, in principle all the amenities for a 4 star hotel. It is a pity that the room, and especially the bathroom, was very dirty and run down with dirty grouting and a shower that leaked. The front desk service was particularly disinterested. Will not go back.

Whilst the hotel itself is in a odd area of Parma it's only 10 minutes from central Parma. For business it's good because it's quiet and the barman Marco is a one man riot.the resteraunt is okay and the staff are helpful and attentive. Good value for money, if on business.

This hotel looks more like a motel than a 4 star hotel. The room was very small and with basic equipment. The soundproofing was not existent, all night I could hear what was happening in the nearby rooms. The location is also bad, since it is 20 minutes from the city center and in a really ugly surrounding. And all... More

Parma was to be a one night stop on our way to Ravenna so we were not particularly picky about our hotel though as we were travelling with our two small kids (4 and 2), the room would have to be a family room. Which is why we picked the BW. The photos available for its family room are accurate... More

We stayed one night at the Best Western hotel Farnese when we were going on our way to Cinque Terre. We just wanted to sleep somewhere, and as we never been to Parma we decided about this hotel. The hotel is very modern decorated. The room wasn't that big, but it was ok. Everything was nice and clean. The only... More

OK, the location isn't desirable, rather out of the way. But, provided you have a car, the location is an acceptable sacrifice so as to enjoy a hotel that ticks all the boxes for a very sensible price. The staff were great, the pool; was nice, the room was good, perfectly clean with a nice bathroom and breakfast was great.... More
