“Small hotel on outside of central Parma”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2012

We spent the first two nights of our trip here.
Just wished the hotel was closer to the city centre. About a fifteen minute walk to the main part of town.
Needed the A/C, but was told it wouldn't be working until mid-May. Slept with the window open.
The restaurant attached to the hotel, Cocchi, was excellent.
Was surprised to find that in a city such as Parma, there wasn't a larger selection of restaurants.

What a great little hotel. It is about a 10 to 15 minute walk to the historic district of Parma and a €6 taxi ride from the train station.
We stayed for 4 days and 3 nights and the only complaint that I have is that the rooms were a touch warm.
The beds were great, they offer extra pillows. The bathrooms were all very modern and a good size. The shower was hot and had great pressure (sometimes that is hit of miss in Italy)
All and all a great hotel. If you stay here you also need to eat in the restaurant "Cocchi". Its a wonderful hidden Gem but, make sure you make reservations, it fills up every night.

Room Tip: The rooms are a touch warm.

We stayed at the Hotel Daniel based on a combination of reviews and price. It seemed for every one thing this hotel does right, it does another thing wrong. It is listed as non smoking, but management seems to be very tolerant of rule breakers as evidence by the cigarette butts on our window sill and the smoke smell in the hallways. The rooms are beautiful, but small, completely as expected in a city. It is a long walk to centro, but it is on a main road, so using the buses is easy. We did not have a car and made the mistake of walking back to the hotel after dinner one night. It was just a little bit too far. There is not much in the immediate vicinity of the hotel. The hotel staff tried to be accommodating and they were very polite, but when we complained that our air conditioning didn't they told us that it was because we didn't tun it on. They went to our room and 'turned it on' but as we said it didn't work. We explained it in both English and Italian, but had to sleep with the windows open since they kept saying it was our fault and we did something wrong. They let us leave our luggage at the hotel after we checked out and went to a meeting. When we came back our luggage was still sitting in the lobby unattended. I guess no one worries about theft in this neighborhood!

Room Tip: Check that the air conditioning works BEFORE you agree to stay in your room.

THe hotel is a 15 mnute walk from Centro. It is away from the hustle, bustle of Parma and a good place to leave your car and enjoy the city. The service was professional and the rooms were spotless. Breaskfast was excellent. THe attached resturant has an excellent reputation, but unfortunately it was our first night in Italy and could not appreciate the cuisine due to fatigue.

We stayed for one night. 100 euros for double bed. Excellent in all aspects. Very clean comfortable room. Great bathroom. Great hospitality. Had dinner in their restaurant, probably the best eats in Parma.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2009

The Hotel Daniel was recommended as I couldn't get into a b&b in the very center of town (all full due to trade show). It turned out to be a decent hotel for a fairly good price. We were travelling with our 2 small children so needed a room for 4. Our room wasn't really big enough for 4, but would've been fine for a family of 3. The fold-out twin bed came down from the wall horizontally which didn't take up too much room. Unfortunately once the baby cot was set up there really wasn't much room left to move around. Traveling with very small children we don't have much choice but to all be in the same room...a suite type solution would've been better. Don't think they have those- or at least it wasn't offered to us.
The service was good. We only had breakfast there as the restaurant attached to the hotel (which gets good reviews) was closed on Saturday nights - quite strange for a restaurant! We were sad to find this out as it would've been very convenient with small children. Breakfast was buffet style, some fresh cakes, fruit, yogurt, ham. Coffee was decent.
The hotel is not too far from the city center and the hustle and bustle. Easy parking and easy to get into the center big parking garage- about a 5 minute drive. I would recommend it. Just make sure you know where you are going to eat if you get there late at night or at mealtime- there doesn't seem to be much within walking distance of the hotel.
