Somewhat unfair to rate this hotel because they upgraded us to a suite on arrival. It was utterly magnificent, and likely one of the finest such suites we've ever stayed in. Everything was impeccable, high quality, with total attention to detail. Staff were expert and helpful with out questions and with maps. Breakfast was competent, with some very nice croissants, many beverages, and well attending wait staffers. This was a knock your socks off event for us.

Although on a busy road, there is good sound-proofing. There is a path that leads through the park right into the city centre. We didn't use it to return to the hotel after dark. It has an art deco theme. Very classy! The bar area lacks something...light and atmosphere. Water from the mini bar cost 4 euros...too much. Breakfast great. Ideal situation! doesn't feel like a big hotel.

Star Hotels is truly a class act. This hotel was built from a warehouse to resemble a grand hotel from the 1920's-1930's. Location on the Park was great with easy walking access to much of the city center.

The hotel was easy to access with a car which was one of the factors in our decision. We enjoyed being able to walk into the park and stroll into Parma. The customer service at the front desk, the bar and the breakfast service were dependent on the individual - some were great, some were hopeless. I'd recommend at checkin reconfirming your room requirements (non smoking, double versus twin bed set up) so that you have a chance of getting the room style you want.

A nice hotel in an old industrial building. Easy access to the city center and it's restaurants through the "parco ducale", around 10 minutes by feet. However the access to the park from the hotel is through a kind of wild area which would deserve some arrangement. Good breakfast. For the price payed I recommend.

It is a very nice, traditional hotel. We really enjoyed our stay. The main positive surprise that we had, was the gorgeous "Parc" next to the hotel. It is cared, and safe. Families, couples, children and joggers use it during all day, and it is never threatening. The hotel is very nice: I would recomend a flat screen TV set.

This hotel looks like maximum 3*. During these days I'm travelling too much but I never seen a hotel you have to open your door with key. Moreever they have a huge key ring (at least 1/2 kg)!!! In my opinion they have to modificate their hotel as soon as possible. I'll never accomodate in this hotel before they modernize it. But staff was very helpful and good humored at all.

First, this is a 4-star business, not a b&b or boutique. It offers all the amenities you'd expect from a quality chain. The room was great, the beds extremely comfortable, a supermarket literally across the street and staff that were competent and available. It was hard to open a door without someone running to do it for you. The front desk was the best we've seen at recommending sights and restaurants. free Parking was a little hard to find but there's always the pay lot under the hotel if needed and only 10 e on weekends. The internet was not free but the hotel rates made up for it. A great experience.

The lobby of the hotel is very tastefully decorated. We had one of the larger rooms, which had a spacious bathroom. The soundproofing was adequate. The room had carpeting, which dampened the noise, and was fairly quiet at night even though you could hear plumbing, doors closing, and people on the street outside occasionally. The air conditioning in the room was great. Even though we were having some of the hottest days of summer, the room was a wonderful refuge from the heat. The staff was superb - very professional and very helpful for providing directions for things in town. The hotel is in a good location - a short walk to the old town, museums and train station. Being next to the park was an added bonus. There is a bank in the same building as the hotel with an ATM and a grocery store across the street. Parma is a little jewel that is not overrun by tourists. The food there is extraordinarily good. I'd recommend the La Forchetta in the old town for dinner. Some of the best gelato we'd ever had was in Parma. When we go back to Parma we will stay at the Du Parc again.

I heartily recommend the Trattoria del Tribunale in the old city. The food was really excellent.

The rooms were spacious and clean, but old-fashioned in decoration, and altogether there was something dreary about the hotel. The breakfast was not up to the standard of other hotels in the same price range we booked in other nearby cities. The location on a busy commercial street is unattractive, and the entrance to the Ducal Garden behind the hotel is particularly ill-marked and unattractive. We would not have stayed there if the Hotel Verdi had been open during August, and would not stay there again even though we plan to visit Parma again in the future.

An excellent hotel overall. However, the restaurant was closed for several days, and the food available in the bar very limited and not particularly good, with its ambience also dull and unwelcoming. Breakfast was very adequate, but unvaried (same fruit every day). The distance through the park to the centre was said to be 5 minutes; it took that time to get to the park, and ten more to cross it. The park closed in the evening, with a much longer walk back (no buses after 8 p.m.) We were totally satisfied with every aspect of our room, and the desk staff.

It is a 7-minute walk to the centre of town. OK, so there's no hotel swimming pool.

StarDuc Hotel was a very clean, very nice hotel, rooms were spacious, bathroom was very large (not used to that in Italy)and the breakfast buffet was very good. (it wasn't just a continental breakfast, they had a nice selection of meats and cheese also) The only thing I didn't like was the location, it was a little out of the way from the town center, but was across from a very nice park. It wasn't that far to walk, but it wasn't a nice walk as you had to cross a highway, and go through a deserted street-during the day was fine but at night I didn't feel that safe.

There was a computer in the lobby so we could conveniently surf the internet. Our double room was rather large compared to all the other double rooms we had stayed at during our trip. The breakfast was delicious...this was the only place out of our 3 weeks in Italy that served scrambled eggs and not just hardboiled eggs! There's a CONAD supermarket conveniently located across the street from the hotel.

Basically the hotel is excellent, very good room and excellent breakfast buffet. However the restaurant meal was poor. In a fortnight of travelling it was the second most expensive and the least enjoyable. The menu promised more than it delivered and was over-priced (we had a very good dinner in town the second night). Our second night was marred by a very loud disco in the central courtyard keeping us awake until past midnight (we had requested a room on an upper floor away from noise). A pity as these two things let down an otherwise very enjoyable and comfortable stay.

The hotel is about 15 minutes from the historic centre of Parma. We enjoyed walking in sometimes along the river and sometimes through the park at the back of the hotel. The rooms are VERY spacious and very well equipped. This is a large hotel which is used for conferences; because of this it can seem impersonal but it is run very efficiently. We were pleased to find we could park our hire car on site at no cost.

We planned to use Parma as a rest & plan point upon arrival in Italy for an extended stay. We enjoyed Parma so much we didn't get much rest or planning done! The Hotel is a modern, streamlined affair with larger than average rooms and excellent services, but little character. The first night we dined in the Hotel restaurant and were very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the experience (great food, perfect service.) Would strongly recommend the Hotel Du Parc to business or leisure travelers who don't mind a modern, more sterile atmosphere conveniently located for touring Parma and the surrounding areas.

The staff was not overly hospitable. The location is a little ways away from the downtown attractions. But it was a very luxurious hotel that would be very appropriate for business travellers.

Good hotel if you have a car and don't way to pay for a parking while you still are really near to the center of the city. Not really near if you want to walk to the center.

The perfect place for a visit to Parma, very conveniently located close to the center and that beautiful park; spacious, prettily decorated guest rooms, lobby, dining room etc; helpful staff. We were delighted.

We enjoyed our stay. The room and bathroom were very spacious. The decor was a little tired. Breakfast was good. The location was ok, 15 minute walk through the park into central Parma and the same to the train station.

The hotel is good but it is not located 500 meters from the station as advertised. To reach the city center you have to walk for at least half an hour, and the hotel never says it.

We were given a room at the rear on the fourth floor which was as far as we could be from a lift. Unfortunately it appeared to have a staff bedroom above it and the sound proofing was non existent, as a result we were awakened each morning at 5.30 by the sound of a bath running which was loud enough to have been in our own room. We have however booked to stay there again as the location is good for us and we had no other complaints, the breakfast was good and the bar/lounge very pleasant

A large, formal hotel. The rooms were very spacious and quiet. A large selection of food on offer at breakfast. It is situated on a busy, unattractive street, but there is a beautiful park about 10 minutes walk away and the town centre lies on the other side. I would stay here again.

It might be me and my poor geography, but I think that on the map you show the hotel at the opposite end of the road. Whatever, it was right where we needed it to be (backing onto the ducal palace). Will stay there again as it's such a rarity in Italian hotels by being quiet and having carpeted floors (some connection here?).

StarHotel was awonderful find. A great place for a quick stay overnight ,right in the city... The best quality of the hotel was it's breakfast and dinner.Both of the rstaurants were very very good. The free breakfast was excellant and so was the room it was in. The dinner and dining room were the absolute best and we would deffinitely return. The only drawback to the hotel was the room was just okay and next time we would ask for an upgrade.

The staff was very courteous other than the inital man at the desk...he was extremely blunt but we never saw him again after our check-in. The breakfast room was nice and a lovely outdoor area (if weather permitted). The location is very good..between the Spanish steps and the Vatican..both within walking distance. We needed a room with 2 beds for our children instead we got a king size bed ..our kids are 24 and 28 years (male & female)..

Very good hotel. Hotel seems geared a bit more to the business traveler. Very modern building, about a 10 minute walk to piazza Garibaldi, there is a back exit that enters directly into the Parco Ducale. Room was a bit on the small side, but did have a huge matrimoniale bed, shower was awkward. Convenient parking with elevator access to the lower level. Would have no problem staying there again, but next time would probably try to book a hotel on the other side of the river more in the "old" city around piazza Garibaldi or the Palazzo Pillota to be closer to the pedestrian area, restaurants and shops.
