The rooms are a little tired and in need of a refurb. Went during an exhibition week at Fiera de Parma, so rates were extortionate! €295.00 per night. I know it's the law of supply and demand, but this was robbery. Having said that, not a bad stay, attentive staff, good breakfast, good coffee if you ask for it to... More

Stayed here for one night, late April 2013. Booked this place based on the reviews that were written on this website. I can't believe how anyone could have written positively of this place. Where to begin? Upon arrival, no one at front desk. Waited several minutes for this person to show up. No apologies or welcome. The cleaning lady in... More

Located 15-20 min drive from the centre location is fine as long as you have transport. Parking is free with a reasonable amount of parking space. Rooms were a reasonable size, clean and air conditioned although the bed seemed short which is unusual for someone who is only 1.75m! The restaurant was a tad on the expensive side but there... More

The hotel San Marco offers value for money. We had 3 nights and our rooms were clean and comfortable. The room appears to have undergone recent renovation. The staff is helpful and attentive. Apart from the coffee (Nescafé), the breakfast is OK but lacks fresh fruit which is custom in this class of hotel.

The staff was extremly helpful and kind. The rooms are specious and nicely decorated. The location is not the best, some 20 min drive from the center of Parma, but no problem if you have car. There is a free parking.
