“Art Deco”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

A gem of a hotel if you like something a little different - it would make a lovely set for an Edwardian play- the decor in the lobby and reception rooms is pure art deco - but the rooms are up to date with all the usual amenities.
The hotel is just across the road from the park which we walked through into the old town in a few minutes . By the way beware the price of drinks in the cafes around the main piazza- much cheaper in any of the little squares off the surrounding streets.
The hotel does not have its own restaurant but the reception staff were very helpful in making recommendations and bookings for the wonderful eateries in the old town.
The hotel has secure parking in the courtyard at the front which is a bonus . Use the sat nav to get to the hotel- the one way system makes it less straight forward than it looks on the road map.
Only negative is that the road between the hotel and the park is pretty busy- you have to keep the window shut and the air con on if you have a room at the front as we did.

Room Tip: I would have a look at the rooms at the back or on the second/third floor. we were on the first floo...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2012

We stayed at the Hotel Verdi on 10th April 2012. The Staff at the hotel were outstanding; All four girls we met were very friendly and so helpful. All spoke perfect English, which is rare in Italy.
The hotel itself is not bling or new. It is old worlde style. The walls have been made to look stained and stress cracked for aesthetics. The room was spotless. We asked for a quiet room, however as we arrived early, it was not ready. We were offered one of the front rooms, which we accepted, as we were tired and did not want to wait for our room to be serviced. The noise from the street happens during the day and with three shutters on the window we did not hear anything at night and we were on the ground floor. It was early April so we had a lovely warm room. Air con in the summer I am not sure how that works. We did not have breakfast in the hotel. A 10 min stroll across a beautiful park will take you into the old town with lots of restaurants to choose from. The girls at reception will advised us on wonderful places for dinner, that were first class and not expensive. This is a family run hotel, which makes it feel homely right down to Apollo the dog. The rooms at the back are quieter but face on to apartments. The one’s facing the road may be noisier but have a view of the park. We enjoyed our one night stay and hope to return one day.

We had a lovely time here in Parma. The room was clean and the bathroom was spotless. I would inquire about the a/c unit in the room before you reserve. Ours worked great for about 20 minutes, then faded. It was cool at night outside, but opening the windows which faced the park (and the street) was quite noisy. The breakfast was an additional 15 euros, which was too expensive. Staff was great.

The staff was very helpful. The hotel is in a nice location. It is a gorgeous city park walk away from the centro. However, the hotel needs to post better directions as to how to get to the hotel. There are many one way streets and, even after being given directions from the tourist office, we found it mainly by luck. Visitors, not used to driving in Italy, have a hard enough time getting around in a car, so very clear directions to the hotel, from every possible entry point into the city would be of great benefit.

Frommers said this was a great place to stay. It could not have been more off base. The room was very old, incredibly thin walls and very noisy if you have a room on the street. Echo the comments of other posters that the staff is somewhat unfriendly. The rooms are very outdated. I could not tell what Frommer's was talking about when it said luxury oiils, marble baths, etc.

This was my eleventh trip to italy. We started the trip in Milan and visited Parma on the second stop of our 10 day stay. Parma is a beautifully preserved, fairly compact city that straddles the Parma river (little flowing with numerous dry spots). The town is quite wealthy and known for its devotion to food (particularly cheese and ham). It is a convention city that caters to business travelers and some tourists. We chose the Hotel Verdi based on its location next to the lovely Parco Ducale. After being in Milan, it was nice to traverse the tranquil grounds of the park (about 300 meters) to enter the city center. The park is clean and expertly landscaped. A man made lake and numerous outdoor statuary are highlights. The Hotel Verdi seems suspended in time. The furnishings are well worn. The aircon non-functioning and the breakfast very basic. We stayed in the junior suite which had an outdoor balcony that we used to sip wine in the evenings prior to dinner. We had to leave the windows open to allow cooler air in so we did encounter some traffic noise. The hotel was not crowded so we never heard footsteps or voices of other guests. Being in Parma, we were hoping for cheese and ham at breakfast but alas it was a strictly continental affair. Except on the saturday morning of our visit, they had a plate of hard parmesan grana which melted like butter in your mouth. We found the staff actually quite helpful in helping us choose restaurants. The restaurant next to the hotel seemed busy but also more expensive that the trattorias that the hotel staff directed us to. We took a day trip by train to Piacenza which has some rather unique artistic items including an estruscan bronze depiction of a sheep's liver, a magnificent Botticelli painting and two of the largest equestrian statues in Italy. Parma is a beautiful city to visit and I would stay at the Hotel Verdi again as long it was not a particularly warm time of year and an upper floor room was available so as to limit the traffic noise.

We spent two nights at this hotel. It is quite a nice hotel but we found the staff to be somewhat unfriendly. The rooms at the front of the hotel can be noisy at night, especially if you leave the window open. We left the window open on the first night as it was quite a warm muggy night. The traffic kept us awake. The air cooler in the bedroom was entirely ineffective. The bedroom and bathroom was very clean. The breakfasts were average. The hotel is right in front of Parc Ducale. This is a beautiful park and is a lovely way to enter the city by foot. There is a lovely (man made) lake in it and it is full of fish and tortoises!
