“A good hotel in a hard to find location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

The Best Western Farnese is probably a good hotel for business travelers, because it satisfies all your requirements. It is very clean, has a good bar and a good restaurant. It was very hard to find. The neighborhood is safe, just nothing there for vacation travelers. I try to be fair and always look for the good parts,however,it is not for vacationers.

Room Tip: The hotel is in a quiet area, so proably no noise problems

Besides the location, which is 15-20 minutes from city centre, this hotel has a great deal to offer at reasonable prices. Very helpful and friendly staff (I left my luggage there after checking out, for a quick trip to Milan and back) and free wifi. Oh, and bath tub instead of the typical shower. The hotel restaurant is a good option if you'd rather stay in for the evening, but do not expect anything extraordinary.

I stayed there last year owing to a business trip. The staff is very friendly and the rooms and breakfast are generous, modern and clean. Definitely a good place to stay in! Also ideal by car. The hotel offers plenty of parking lots. Also checked downtown out from this location. Shouldn't cost you more than 8 EURO by cap to reach the center as I can recall.

Very modern hotel with a good breakfast and very helpfull staff. Unfortunately the location is inconvenient thus a shuttle would be great. We used the bus 200m from the hotel running every 10-15 mins.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

We stay here quite often when traveling to Rome as Parma is mid-way on our journey. What we like about this hotel is that it is clean, the staff is friendly, there is easy parking for the car, room is comfortable, free wifi, the breakfast is good and it's easy to access the highway. All for the fine price of EURO 115 for the four of us. The two dogs stay for free. If you are planning on visiting Parma without a car, this is not the right hotel for you as it is on the outskirts of the town. But if you have a car, there are several public parking lots in town so driving in is not a hassle. Compared with Italian hotels in general, where you're never quite sure what you'll get, this hotel meets expectations.

Room Tip: We usually ask for Room 108 as it has a large bed and enough room for the four of us.

Hotel is quite dated and full of business travellers, but the location is crap. Absolute outskirts of Parma, and a good 30min walk to edge of town centre, and another 20min to get into the centre. I arrived by hire car and asked the front desk what was the best way into town....was promptly told walking as its is only 10mins...not only was that a lie, in summer Parma is hot and dry and the majority of the walk has no cover/shade.

Driving to the edge of Parma is definitely the best way to get into town if you are silly enough to pick this hotel.

Parma itself is not the most exciting Italian city. Food isn't the best (Milan is way better), and unfortunately I left Portofino early to see more of Parma - biggest single mistake I made on my whole 2month Euro trip.

I needed to book this hotel last minute for personal reasons on word of mouth by a newly found italian friend and it was excellent!!! The room was huge with everything you would need and if you didn't then you call downstairs and they supply it.

The staff were friendly, helpful and obliging with all requests, even when I needed a charger for my iPhone, toothpaste, help with the wifi etc.

The restaurant had a lovely friendly waiter who could recommend rather quaffable red wines and the food was reasonable yet of very good quality and completely delicious in every way.

All in all would highly recommend it, and whatever you do let the lovely waiter pick your wine - he has very good taste!!!
