Il Borgo
Ranked #17 of 68 Parma B&B and Inns
Reviewed July 26, 2011

B&B Il Borgo is in the town center in a quiet area. We walked everywhere in town from there and loved this charming little town. The location is just what we wanted--in the center, walking distance from everything, in a quiet, not at all touristy neighborhood.

Enza Borelli is a great host. She cares about this apartment and enthusiastically makes sure that you have everything you want. It's a 2-story apartment. Each floor has just the space that two people need to enjoy the apartment. It's perfectly designed to use the space well. Everything is new and works well. Upstairs is the bed and bathroom. Downstairs is the eat in kitchen with all the amenities. Enza even provided a desktop computer, which really helped us stay in touch with family as we didn't have a laptop with us. Enza stocks the fridge with fresh fruit regularly, and the espresso maker is very easy to use and the coffee is good. Since this is an independent apartment, we didn't expect fresh croissants in the morning. We were pleased to have the fresh fruit and yogurt that Enza made sure was always there.

We had a great time at B&B Il Borgo, would happily stay there again, and have recommended it to our friends. Enza is quintessentially what we have always loved about the best of Italy. We highly recommend her and this lovely apartment.

B&B Il Borgo is a great place to spend a few days exploring the beautiful city of Parma. The b&b has recently been renovated and is located on two floors in an old townhouse in the centre of Parma. The appartment is extremely well equipped. It even has a washing machine and a computer incl. printer and broadband connection free for the guests to use. Enza, who runs the place, is really friendly and does everything she can to make your stay comfortable - inspite of language problems. She does not live in the house, however, and the appartment has a private entrance and is not shared with anyone, so if you want to stay with an Italian family in their own home, this is not the place to go to. The only negative thing to say, which is not the fault of the b&b anyway, is that Il Borgo is located within the ZTL zone in Parma, which means that you cannot drive anywhere close to the appartment without a separate permission - not even to unload your luggage. The nearest suitable parking (Parking Goito) is a 10-15 min walk away. Great place at a great value.

Room Tip: La zona benché a pochi passi dal centro è molto tranquilla per cui le stanze sono silenziose.
