2 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed in 2 double-bed rooms for 1 night on our way southwards. One of the rooms smelled very strange, so we asked for a replacement, which we happily got. The rooms are OK for getting a night's sleep, but I would not want to spend a vacation here. The hotel is fairly close to a large railway track area.... More

Every now and then, one comes across a hotel that provides such poor quality food or service, it becomes laughable and more of a comedic "Faulty Towers" experience than anything else. The Best Western Hotel in Parma is just such a place. If you need a good laugh and really want to see how some establishments try to rip off... More

Tired and worn. Badly furnished rooms with bedside lamps totally inadequate for reading, poor bathrooms (the shower is only divided by a flimsy curtain), half closed-up balconies. Average breakfast with watery "fruit" juice and a poor bread selection. Mixed friendliness of staff. All in all, not worth the price. On the other hand, why visit Parma at all? You can... More

We stayed here for ten days recently while visiting family in Parma and would recommend this hotel. It is on the outskirts of Parma within easy reach of the ring road around Parma. The historic centre, restaurants and shopping are a short bus or taxi journey. The rooms are comfortable, clean and efficiently and unobtrusively air conditioned. Breakfast is excellent... More

This is a nice hotel with nice rooms, friendly staff and a pleasant pool area. However, it's about 20-30 minutes' walk from the centre of Parma, and there are no shops, cafes, restaurants etc around the hotel. As long as you're prepared for that, the hotel is fine. Very helpful staff.

Stayed here for 4 nights. Really enjoyed the hotel - staff are helpful and very friendly. It is about a 20 minute walk from the centre of Parma. Breakfast buffet was fine - especially if you need to grab it in a hurry and go to work. Swimming pool is lovely however not enough sun loungers so its not always... More

From the time you walk through the door you feel welcome. Marco, Antonio and Nico make you feel at ease in the restaurant and bar with plenty of advice on food and wine. The general atmosphere is congenial with all the staff showing a good sense of fun. The only downside is a railway line on one side of the... More

Asked for a quiet room (which wasn't ready even though I was late checking in) and settled into the third room they gave me (the second was right above the small pool and noisy) for a night's sleep after a very long drive. Unfortunately, I was kept awake until after midnight by loud voices screaming and shouting and a dog... More

Rooms are clean, modern and ok for one night. The balcony is not really much worth since te wall is so high, you only can see the sky. Swimming pool is very small (8*4m i guess) with aprox 8 beds and 4 parasols and a bar, which serves by the way nice cool beer. Nice for a dip, but getting... More

We had excellent stay - only wish we'd found it earlier. Stayed at 6 hotels in Italy on this trip. Hotel Bonnano in Pisa was very good but the pool at this Best Western made this one the winner! Staff at reception very welcoming and chatted with us in English. Marco in the restaurant was also very nice and took... More
