I had the pleasure of staying at Rubra for the second time this summer and I am delighted to report that it remains the single best set of lodgings in the province of Parma, if not the entire Po Valley. Massimiliano remains just as warm and accommodating a host as he was when we first met a couple of years...

Great location, very near the center of Parma and very well-connected to the main train station. Room 4 is great and with ALL the comforts too, especially when it comes to cooking your own meals. Small drawback is that there's no elevator, but you get to do some excersise along the way! Very silent too with a great bed. There's...

Parking was close on Via Kennedy, 10 Euro for 24 Hours. Rubras' location provides a short walk to charming downtown and all it's attractions. Grocery located 2 minutes away. And then there is Max the proprietor....

Three-nights at B&B Rubra were simply fabulous! The entire experience from booking to departure was terrific. Owner, Max, who speaks perfect English, is a wonderful host; he gave great recommendations on what to see, where to dine and where to buy local products. I stayed in studio apartment #3 with huge terrace and equally large bathroom. Very, very clean, plenty...

We had a lovely few days in Parma at Rubra B&B and Apartments at the end of March. We stayed in apartment 3 and it was everything you could ask for in a home away from home.

We just returned home from a week's stay at Max's Rubra Apartments in Parma Italy. We can't say enough good things about the accommodations (as the title says...."Just Perfect"!). The apartment was clean; quiet; extremely comfortable; and centrally located....convenient and walk-able to all! We chose apt. no. 3 as it had a beautiful balcony overlooking the courtyard, which we just...

“If you need wifi, Max told us that the wifi only worked well in the garden of the ground floor apartment and, since it was raining and we needed it, we took a different apartment. I can tell you the wifi in Max's B&B was the most reliable we had in Italy! By the way - the heat worked great and there is air conditioning for the warm months.”
