With only 43 rooms in a mostly residential area at the edge of the city center, devoted management and staff skillfully operate a three star hotel at a four star level. Inside and out all is fresh and bright, including the charming small courtyard leading to narrow lanes and small to moderate sized rooms on three floors with elevator, imaginatively decorated in the manner of a country inn. Full HD TV, firm beds. Nicely appointed baths. Everything very clean. The smoothly functioning proceedings are overlooked by several cats patrolling the property with great authority and confidence. A compact breakfast room, itself a pleasure to the senses, serves fresh delicacies including hot items. Friendly and professional front desk staff are ready with recommendations and directions to the medieval city center that continues to be overlooked by so many visitors to Italy who bypass the city on the same mainline tracks leading to Florence, Rome, and Venice. Located about 15 minutes on bus #33 from the station, with another 10-15 minutes walk to the center on a nearby main street. Be sure to sample the famous Parma ham (but don't bring any into the United States.) The equally renowned Parmigiano Reggiano cheese (which IS allowed entry into the US) is available everywhere at a fraction of the cost in a US or Canadian supermarket. In every respect, Hotel Porto San Mamolo is fully deserving of the rave reviews from TA admirers.
