Great hotel for one night while passing through - breakfast was very nice and a great price as were the hotel rooms. Would definitely recommend to give this hotel a try. The staff were able to help us in English which was also definietly to our advantage.

The hotel is very elegant and very good service people in the restaurant. Very high level of Best Western Hotels worldwide. Parma as a city, with its special ham. I recommend Only one night so that I could write something more.

I had an awesum stay at this hotel. Good food and excellent waiters at the dinner service. The breakfast was "complete" but lack some varity when it comes to e.g. hot foods, vegetables and yoghurts. You will not find pancakes or fancy cheeses here. The room was clean, big and had everything I needed. Wifi is included and working fine....

Only a couple of things stopped me from giving an overall better score. Some of the sockets in the room did not appear to work for charging phones and tablets. Also, after discussing with the lounge bar man about having a glass of red wine, it failed to turn up. But the pasta and my wife's salad were very good....

We come every year for the parma fiera and stay here with our friends. This year we found the two men at reception quite unfriendly. Breakfast was ok. Room was ok. Nothing very special but reasonably priced.

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....

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...

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...

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...
