“Great stay and a good restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2012 via mobile

We stayed overnight on our way to Rome. I called before getting there and managed to secure two adjoining rooms at a very good price. The breakfast is included in the rate.
We had dinner at the hotel restaurant. Sat outside and enjoyed the fragrance of the flowering Jasmine. The kids could run around and we enjoyed our meal. Parking overnight was EUR7.

Located just outside the historical center which is at walking distance, the hotel has a valet parking system. The staff is extremely nice and helpfull and the room we had was very large and extremely clean.
Perfect place to stay to enjoy the city!

This is a modern, clean, and Scandinavian-style hotel in its room decor. Very basic, simple, and efficient. They have a buffet style restaurant and a la carte restaurant. The food is fine. This is definitely not a five star hotel, which they put right under the name of the hotel, but in Parma, this is very nice and worth the stay.

Great location and beautiful room. Nice to have access to the Barilla Center and so close to the stadium and the center. The breakfast was tasty. The hotel was not perfect, but that is to be expected. I thought the relationship between the price and what you received was better than average. The staff was very attentive most of the time, there was a few times they were busy and we had too wait (at the bar). The sauna did not have a bucket of water and we were not sure if we could add water and the Turkish bath did not have instructions.

Have been twice: for business to the Grand Hotel de Ville in Parma.
Good hotel and very good service.
I would recommend this hotel to friends and collegues.
In Parma downtown....
Still it is not, in my opinion, a 5 star hotel.
That's all falks!

This hotel is very comfortable, has pleasant rooms and quite nice common areas and restaurant and bar area - however it simply is not a 5 star establishment.
I stayed for a week and my room had enough closet space for a couple of days visit.
There is valet parking that was very reasonably priced.

Room Tip: Choose a North facing room to avoid direct sun during the day. In the autumn the air conditioning is...
