Palazzo Dalla Rosa Prati is an historical residence, located in the heart of Parma's city center. It has suites, with wonderful view of "Piazza Duomo" and the "Battistero" than can be rented from one night on, and fully furnished apartments of different sizes (from 45 to 120 square meters) that can be considered a good solution also for medium-long term rentals.
I have stayed in Palazzo Dalla Rosa Prati on several occasions as I visit Parma frequently I can only say that my experience on all occasions has been excellent..
The most positive thing about the Palazzo is its location on Piazza del Duomo which is the historic centre of this medieval town. Most of the important artistic and historic sites are within walking distance as are some of the City's best restaurants.
The Palazzo is not a formal hotel but what I call a "residence hotel" which are common in Europe This, of course, is reflected in the price. A spacious and well appointed room can be offered to the guests for less than a four or five star hotel in the same city Many of the rooms ( if not all) have a small kitchenette which allow guests to cook their own meals if they are so inclined.
I have recommended the Palazzo to several of my friends and they all have been very positive about their stay there.
I booked a Standard Apartment for a night. The young receptionist was very friendly and provided all the info asked, even went above and beyond to help us to get to the hotel. Palazzo Dalla Rosa Prati is located in Piazza Duomo and offers parking in the courtyard, elevator and a gorgeous ambiance.
The beddings and the towels of a good quality and smell fresh. Also the toiletries were available. I love the high ceiling and large windows! The bed and pillows were comfy.
WiFi and breakfast were included. Checkout was quick and easy.
Note: we were late to arrive and texted the hotel. They were kind to wait for us until the arrival, and also offered to book a place for dinner. The young lady also help to park the car. apologies for not remembering her name …
Next time will stay longer in Parma @ Palazzo Dalla Rosa Prati.
Overlooking the Piazza Duomo, the Palazzo Dalla Rosa Prati is perfectly located to explore the center of Parma - the staff are all very friendly and eager to help - my only criticism is that they need to invest in new mattresses!
I have written many reviews for trip advisor and have never had to write about a terrible experience. I booked the Palazzo Dalla Rosa Prati in March for and Oct. stay. We were travelling on a Backroads biking trip from Parma to Venice. The hotel was on their suggested list. We were 2 couples and I booked a 2 bedroom suite for the night before the trip began. We arrived at 7pm and was told that we did not have a confirmed reservation and that there were no rooms available. The desk clerk called the owner and when I showed her the confirmed reservation that the owner had confirmed she again said sorry but there are no rooms. We then insisted that she find us two rooms elsewhere at the same level as her hotel. She convinced the owner who was "going to look online" for an alternative but never called her back. We had a list of hotels from Backroads and chose a hotel. She called the hotel Park and secured us the last 2 rooms. We insisted that the Palazzo Prati pay for the hotel and the taxi to get there. The clerk was lovely and seeing our obviously confirmed reservation convinced the owner to pay for the hotel and taxi. This was probably one of the worst experiences we have had and if you book this hotel be aware that this was not a clerical error. I am also contacting Backroads to have this hotel taken off of their suggested list.

Dear Ellen, I’m very sorry for what happened and I would like to assure You that we’re improving our internal procedures everyday in order to avoid this kind of problems, even though, to be honest, this was the first time that we had to face an overbooking in the last 10 years. I’ll take the opportunity to specify to all the readers that our staff didn’t hesitate in providing Ellen and her friends an alternative accommodation ensuring the same comfort; in fact we promptly booked and paid two suites for them in a 5 stars hotel. In less than half hour we were able to solve the problem of the overbooking, paying for both rooms and the taxi, and we were absolutely glad to do it and assist you with the problem. Vittorio Dalla Rosa Prati, Owner
Perfectly located on the piazza Duomo this charming hotel is a wecome retreat at the end of the day. The rooms are unusually large, pleasantly old fashioned to the eye yet each modernised with a small kitchen. I saw several rooms and no two are alike. Its best feature is the management. Both Alessandro and Mattei went out if their way for us and were most helpful. I wholeheartedly recommend it and look forward to a return visit.
