We just returned home from a week's stay at Max's Rubra Apartments in Parma Italy. We can't say enough good things about the accommodations (as the title says...."Just Perfect"!). The apartment was clean; quiet; extremely comfortable; and centrally located....convenient and walk-able to all! We chose apt. no. 3 as it had a beautiful balcony overlooking the courtyard, which we just... More

We had a very good three days in Parma - our apartment was excellently located, quiet and comfortable, with the added luxury of a daily cleaner included in the price. Max's friend, Marco, who hosted, gave us great advice on where to eat and where to go and we ended our stay with a fascinating discussion of Italian politics, about... More

I have stayed at the Rubra and absolutely loved this experience. I travel a lot for work, so I have seen loads of hotels and B&Bs and I have to say it's almost impossible to come across with places as clean, cozy and welcoming as the one at Max's place. Despite being extremely quiet and relaxing, position as well is... More

Rubra Bed & Breakfast & Apartments truly was our home away from home, and, yes, we could've moved in and stayed forever. It was that nice, that cozy, that inviting. Max was the best! He settled us in quickly and helped us organize our quest for antique markets and good food. We stayed in the downstairs apartment. It was perfect... More

Stayed in the 1brm apartment on the 3rd floor for 2 nights in early September. No lift, so be prepared to climb the 3 flights of stairs, good exercise if wanting to enjoy the fabulous food of Parma. The apartment was self contained (though no washing machine), with a small balcony overlooking the garden area, very nice. Friends stayed in... More

We stayed in Max's very centrally located apartment in late September and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The apartment is very comfortable and has access to a lovely courtyard. There were plenty of dishes and pots for cooking and there is a market down the street on Saturday where you can buy some wonderful fresh food. Max was extremely helpful with... More

My wife and I stayed four nights at Rubra B&B. It was very clean, convenient, and well located. Definitely a comfortable place to stay. Marco is a very nice host that makes you feel welcomed and at ease. He left me an umbrella on the door when it rained, and gave us outstanding suggestions to eat at. Would definitely recommend!...

Arrived on a really hot day 35c and it was lovely that the apartment was cool and cold water in the fridge. The air-conditioning never faltered during our 5 nights. Good location as a supermarket is close by ( 150 m ) for such a good location it is very quiet with great shutters. Rooms are cleaned every day, and... More

Rubra is best place in centre of town, in walking distance from all most important places. 5 mins walking from Parma main square, from opera theatre, from all museums and night life. 100 mt from Ducale Park, the oldest and main one. very clean and quite, because the front door is on the main street of town but rooms look...
