The room was spacious, but there were two immediately obvious problems. First, the air conditioning wouldn't stay on for more than a few minutes before turning itself off. Second, when we opened the door of the mini-fridge, a blast of hot air escaped from it (two words: fire hazard!!) and the surface of the appliance was hot to the touch. The hotel replaced the fridge and fixed the a/c problem but all this took over two hours with staffers coming and going through our room.
Other than these irritants, the hotel was average. I think it was overpriced at €170 per night; €130/night would be more appropriate. We plan to return to Parma in a couple of years and we'll find somewhere else to stay.
