We had a great stay here, the room we stayed in had a separate bedroom and kitchenette which was perfect for parents with kids. The staff was very helpful, this is a family owned and run hotel so you get good personal treatment. They printed out boarding passes for us at the front desk and were very helpful. Very convenient... More

Close to Stanford so we stayed here. Felt that it was not a good value for the money. The room was clean; and staff friendly and helpful. The bathroom was dirty, with mold and the bathtub dingy, the tub mat was supposed to be white but was gray. The room did have free wifi, but was not working.

The layout is of a motel, but for my stay I had everything I needed: clean room and bathroom, silence at night (I was away during the day) and good WiFi connectivity. The room was spaceous and the front clerks were very friendly. Regarding the location, it is obviously a bit far from Palo Alto centre to walk, but there... More

I stayed in hotel Parmani for 4 days on a business trip. Although the motel is not luxurious it is clean and comfortable. The staff are friendly and accommodating, cereal, toast and coffee are available every morning. The downside to the motel are the showers, which can change temperature at a moments notice and have very low water pressure.

My 4-star is based on the value for the area. This is not a romantic or posh hotel at all. It is basic and it does basic well. The layout is that of a motel, which is good because you pretty much need a car (there is a bus line though if you need). The rooms were updated largely, with... More

Spacious room, decent price and good central location. We used this as a stop off before setting off to half moon bay to start our Highway 1 coastal drive. 5 minute drive from Stanford University but a very quiet area with not much to do.

I hesitate to share such a good find because we will certainly hope to get a reservation if visiting Stanford again! The distance from campus was quite reasonable given that we had a car. Clean, comfortable beds. Breakfast: cereal, fruit, coffee, sweet rolls, juice. Wireless worked. The suite was perfect for our family, 2 rooms sharing a bath. Best of... More

I stayed here overnight while in Palo Alto recently. The staff is friendly and helpful, and the room was clean and quiet, albeit a bit dated. I was surprised when I actually saw the place, as the web site could give one the impression that this was a small "boutique" hotel. It is far from boutique, but it is clean... More

I spent just a couple of nights at the Hotel Parmani and it was a very pleasant experience. The rooms are comfortable, there is everything you need, nice breakfast, convenient location. But most of all I appreciated how friendly and helpful the staff at the reception is. This is a small family-owned business and there you really feel a warm... More
