Enfield, United Kingdom33 contributions30 helpful votes
If I was just scoring the Hotel I would give it 5, for the hotel catering I would give it 1 or 2. Thus my overall score of 3. The room was perfect for our needs. Clean well maintained with a very comfortable bed. Ideally I would have liked a card detailing the tv channels, highlighting the one not in Italian. The receptionist was very welcoming, efficient and spoke good English. Later on in our stay she cheerfully printed out the documents you now need to return to the UK. All very good. The day before we rang to ask if the restaurant was open for dinner, after a wait we were told yes. On arriving at about 4.15 we were told it was unsure if the restaurant would in fact be open . We were finally told about 5.30 it would open. With hindsight we should have realized this must mean they do not get fresh deliveries every day. My wife had pizza, this seemed to be microwaved. ( In Italy!) I had a burger. The bun was unbelievable old, it was hard like a biscuit. It was also very cold making the burger cold. Breakfast also had old and stale bread rolls, pastries etc. Choice was limited ie no brown bread. If the “orange juice” had seen a tree I would be surprised. The staff were hard working and professional, and spoke ok English. The restaurant was very Covid secure, as was the hotel.

Thank you for being our guest and I still hope you would give us another chance in the future. Orlando A. Case Manager IHGService

Parma is actually a small town. Therefore, not many international hotel right in the city. This hotel is a standard fare Holiday Inn Express: efficient,friendly, no frills and comfortable. Just a few points about this particular hotel. Many reviews raved about the restaurant. We have dinner once there. It was a good restaurant with good cooking. But there are similar restaurants of this kind in the city also. An important point to note, the restaurant does not open on Sunday. The hotel is located at a quiet corner of the city but not too out of the way. The hotel will gladly call for taxi for going out. I actually liked the location very much as it gave me a very good sleep. We had beers from the counters for 2 evenings and the service was good. We were provided with a big bowl of nuts. The only thing about this hotel was that the air conditioner was controlled by the front desk. Nevertheless, when I was there, weather was already cold. So there was not need for it at all.

Room is clean, it contains a water boiler and coffee is provided as well. Breadfast is good with even some home made products. It is better to ask for a coffee from the bar rather than the automatic nescafe dispenser. We took one dinner there, it was good, with a good price. As a summary, it is a good choice for visiting Parma and its surroundings.

Felt a tad bit of racial profiling. Had a few rums at the bar and no snacks were offered. Few minutes later some dude walks in, & before he gets his beer he gets a plethora of snacks served to him. Was a bad feeling.

The hotel is ok, but nothing special. They are in the middle of nowhere. They need to put refrigerator in each room. No safes in each room. The restaurant at the hotel is amazing!!. We ate there two nights. Room was comfy for 3 adults. Staff friendly. They have a vending machine, but it wasn't stocked well. Only a few drinks and 6 snacks.

Hello Miata P, Thank you for leaving us your review and for making us a part of this visit to Italy. We are grateful that you chose the Holiday Inn Express. We stay true to our purpose of being the best on the brilliant basics, Miata P, but I'm sorry that we've missed the mark this time. Though it made me smile that our rooms and the restaurant were the highlights of this trip, I understand that we can be better. I regard your suggestion about the need to add a fridge and safe in the room, and also to offer more items in the vendo machine. Don't worry, I took the necessary steps to ensure our management gets to read your post and be talked upon all concerned staff. We may not have been our best on this trip but I'm positive to end this with a 5-stars on your next stay. Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your stay with us. All the best, Frank A. Case Manager IHGService
