Small, simple but very nice and central. {3 stars}

Hotel Torino, in the centre of the small city of Parma, is a fairly simple 3-star, comfortable and welcoming.

I booked a double room for single use with a view, and was a bit surprised at how small the room was for 95 euros per night. But my room also had a very large patio with two chairs and a view of the little shopping street below, and of the domed roof of the lovely Madonna della Steccata church (unfortunately under scaffolding).

The bathroom was surprisingly large and bright, very clean and everything worked well. Even the air-conditioning in the room was good and could be adjusted (which isn't often the case -- many hotels set the temperature at the front desk).

The bed was large and reasonably comfortable but took up most of the floor space -- the wardrobe door couldn't be opened fully because the bed and desk (where the TV sat) took up most of the space!

Still, the room was comfortable and very clean and quiet. The public areas of the hotel were small but well-kept. The small bar/breakfast room was bright, breakfast was good but choice was limited to yogurt, pastries and bread for toast (no fresh fruit or cheese).

The hotel has underground parking for a fee (I saw pepole with luggage taking the elevator down) and Internet access in the reception area.

Hotel Torino is also an an excellent location, very close to all of the main sights in Parma (a lovely little city) yet very quiet.
