An authentic old-style, very charming apartment! Elena (the host), is a very kind and nice person. Yet some improvement as regards cleaning is essential.

La posizione del B&B San Francesco è strategica: non lontana dalla stazione e in centro, permette di visitare Parma spostandosi a piedi. Pulitissimi la camera e il bagno. L'unica "scomodità" il fatto che il bagno si trovi all'esterno della camera; è comunque privato e riservato unicamente agli ospiti di quella camera. Buona la qualità-prezzo. A noi serviva per una sola notte e ci siamo trovati bene come soluzione.

Esperienza più che positiva: oltre a godere il vantaggio di una posizione centralissima (praticamente adiacente alla piazza del Duomo e del Battistero), siamo stati accolti con grande cordialità e abbiamo soggiornato in una stanza più bella di quanto ci sembrasse in foto. Il bed and breakfast è ubicato al III piano di un palazzo d'epoca, che si affaccia su una via silenziosa e tranquilla del centro storico. Solo pochi passi e si raggiungono i principali monumenti artistici nonché le vie della movida parmense. La posizione è ideale per chi come noi sceglie di arrivare a Parma in treno e di muoversi a piedi per la città; se si preferisce l'auto, è possibile parcheggiarla sul limitare della ZTL (il centro dista 10/15 minuti di cammino). Nella camera - ampia luminosa e ben arredata - oltre ai comfort essenziali, ho trovato alcuni libri. Piacevole sorpresa anche questa! Ritorneremo.

Struttura nel complesso carina, locata nel centro storico di Parma. La proprietaria è molto cordiale. L'unica pecca è che l'appartamento è molto buio e non c'è possibilità di far cambiare aria perché le finestre danno su un cortile interno (tra l'altro rumorosissimo).

Situata nel centro storico di Parma il B&B si presenta più come una casa affittata per un giorno che come un B&B. Arredata con mobili antichi (alcuni anche molto belli), con elettrodomestici un po' datati, piena di suppellettili della famiglia. La Signora Renata è stata gentilissima per cui non posso che premiarla con un buon voto per la disponibilità e per la cortesia. Buono per una notte.

Mi sono trovata benissimo in questo B&B; molto accogliente, tranquillo e silenzioso. Proprio quello che cercavo. E ringrazio pubblicamente Maria Elena. A Parma per accertamenti medici, mi ha confortato, suggerito e aiutato, portandomi di persona dove avevo la visita, senza nulla chiedere. Persona molto gentile e empatica. Mi sono sentita quasi come a casa..

A parte una parete ancora in lavorazione chiusa con pannelli di legno e plastica, la non previsione della colazione ed il caldo infernale appena mitigato da 2 ventilatori nel sottotetto direi quasi accettabile.
