Previously known as Albergo Parma hotel (look it up on trip advisor), it seems nothing has changed but the name and that in itself is a bit suspicious. Having stayed at quite a number of budget hotels, I have encountered many unpleasant ones but this is the worst I've seen. The condition of this hotel could almost be described as squalor.
We were given a reasonable sized room at first. While the bathroom had some hair in the sink and the floor of the room wasn't quite clean, it was okay. However, as we were settling in and preparing for bed the ceiling started to leak, making the bed wet. Lucky we hadn't gone to bed yet. While the Chinese owners couldn't speak much English, they managed to find us another room. Still, we had to pack our bags and move everything. The replacement room was much smaller, with a smaller bed as well. While the first room had a musty smell in the bathroom, the second one smelt horribly of mould. Enough to make you feel sick. Like the first room, the floor wasn't clean and our bags ended up dirty.
While the Italian man who first greeted us was friendly and helpful on arrival, he offered no apology for the problems and refused any compensation.
Do yourself a favour and find somewhere else to stay. If you want somewhere near the station, Hotel Mary looks much better than this one (I haven't stayed there so it may or may not be great either, but from the outside looks much better than this one). This hotel isn't worth the money they're charging or any for that matter. The floors need to be well scrubbed, the bathrooms eradicated of mould and the leaks fixed. Until then this place should be shut down.
