This is a new (10 years old) hotel, is contemporary in decor, fresh, clean and well-kept. The location is good, next to a small shopping mall and large supermarket. It is about a 15 min. walk to the main Plaza. I had room 329 and stayed three nights. Based on the schematic on the door, all the rooms on this... More

Modern and well structured hotel. Clean and large rooms. Good but not exceptional breakfast. Very courteus staff, especially at front desk. Not likewise many hotels in Utaly, service is taken seriously. Garage available.

I stayed here with my wife for a few nights. Most of the staff were exceptionally helpful, like many places in Italy if you speak English they don't have much time for you. The breakfast, location and rooms are wonderful but I'm not sure how you can be a 5 star hotel and not have air conditioning. We found it... More

Pros: Friendly staff Nice lobby area Bathroom shoes Cons: Small tv Outdated room feel Hotel is located about ten mins by taxi from the train station, which cost about 7 euros. Hotel is about 10 min walk to ghirbaldi square which offers nice small stores for shopping and cozy restaurants. Overall a decent hotel.

The hotel is in a solid location but anyway Parma is a small city. The staff is polite and helpful at the reception but when I tried to enter in the room I faced my first problems. First the key slot didn't worked so I had to wait half hour to fix that. The rooms are clean but you expect... More

We visit in Barilla pasta academy in September and we stayed this fantastic hotel. Service was really great and friendly. Hotel is nicely renovated from old factory or something and it's gorgeous! Breakfast was really good and our children loved the juices. It take about 10 minute to walk old town so it's close to city center. The mall within... More

I had a very enjoyable stay at this hotel. I was there for 5 days on a business trip and the staff were extremely helpful and the service was excellent. My only gripes are minor, ie. as is the case i most Italian Hotels no iron in the room. Another minor annoyance was the lighting system, it was technology used... More

Sizable hotel with spacious room and nice bathroom. It is a little worn and could use some updating. Why I rated 4 star. Staff was professional but not terribly friendly. Breakfast was awesome (ask for fresh cappuccino). Parking garage is 8€ a night which is reasonable. Location is decent if you have a car.

Okay, let's start by saying this is not a five star hotel when measured against the great hotels of the world. However, it is a well managed, clean and fully functional hotel with virtually all the amenities you need. It is ideally situated in Parma and the staff are some of the most attentive you will encounter. Nothing is too... More

The hotel was average with loud noise from young techo-poppers at attached shopping mall and bars. However, it was convenient (10 minute walk) to the heart of downtown and the wonderful sights and tastes of Parma.
