Whilst the decor is nice and modern, and rooms are clean, and wifi connection good (but not free!) the place appears to be made out of paper walls. You can hear everything that goes on outside your door (banging, shouting opening and closing of doors, people getting in and out of lift, etc), and also what's going on next door! My room had a connection door to the adjoining room and I could hear EVERYTHING. The toilet, the music, the pizza delivery, I could tell my lady neighbour was listening to Adele while drying her hair and I could hear her ordering her pizza. All this while some adolescent Italians seemed to tear the house down in the hall. Needless to say that a quiet evening was out of the question. Outside is so noisy with busses etc that opening the window is also not really an option. The guy at reception in the evening was neither very friendly nor informative and I had to painstakingly extract all information such as what time breakfast was served. Speaking of the latter, it is of very limited choice and the room is in the cellar, so a bit dull. The lady who brings the coffee is nice and cheerful though and the coffee is good. There are also about 300 TV channels, but every single one is in Italien, so tough luck if you want entertainment in another language. There is a CD player - unfortunately, as my neighbour enjoyed playing it a lot and at a high volume!
I come to Parma frequently, but I will not stay here again. Ever. Avoid rooms with connecting doors at all cost. Avoid full stop, unless you come with some serious ear plugs.
