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.

We stayed here overnight as a large group on tour but really wished that we could have stayed longer at this hotel. The service was phenomenal. The car was parked for us for very little money and the bell hops are always standing by to whisk you into your room. The hotel also has a little gym on the rooftop... More

My friends in Parma recommended this hotel and said it was the only 5 star hotel here. They live here so I am not sure if they've seen the rooms. It's not horrible at all, but I am only staying here one night. Plus my friends got me a fabulous rate (3 star prices). Otherwise, I would speak with the... More

It's well located in the small town of Parma. There is free wi-fi and that's good. However that's where the positives end. The room has an airconditioner but it didn't work - apparently because it was still too early to start the aircondintioning (I had to keep windows open). The room-service food is limited and only during lunch/ dinner hours.... More

We stayed in this hotel three nights during a recent visit to the area. Hotel was clean and accommodating. Staff was very nice and helpful. Restaurant had great food. Walking distance to historic district but not in it. Not 5 star by US standards but no complaints.
