Grand old hotel in a spa town.Posted Nov 21, 2013
Pros: Charming room with beautiful views and helpful staff.
Cons: Breakfast needs more non sweet food.
Location: You will need a car to get here but the town is very walkable. Do visit the Terme and enjoy various water activities.
We didn't realise that this hotel is in Salsomaggiore Terme, a town about 40 kilometres from Parma when we booked it based on its good recommendations but were delighted by the hotel, the town and the Art Deco Terme building which is unique and spectacular. The hotel is a grand stone edifice built in 1911 and our room was large and comfortable with two Juliette balconies and views over the town and surrounding Autumn countryside. We had a king bed, desk and minibar.The breakfast which was in the former ballroom (a little faded and tired) featured lots of cakes and fruits but only cold poached or boiled eggs and minimal cereal. On the second day there was some bacon provided. There is no restaurant but there are some attractive options in the town and staff were helpful in pointing these out. You can spend the day at the Terme or a few hours like we did. Ultra modern facilities are provided inside the Art Deco building which is very beautiful with marble staircases and lovely leadlight windows. This town has a great deal of charm and the hotel is very good value indeed as others have noted.

Pros: All the staff were more than helpful and would do anything they could to help.The location was excellent The restaurant.
Cons: Having two teenage girls single beds would have been better than bunk beds

This hotel more then lived up to is name The restaurant is a must with an excellent range of food ,catering for everyone .The bar is open whenever you want and the staff are more than willing to make tea and coffee as well as bar drinks. The hotel is situated in the heart of the village and with easy accesses to all shops and amenities.It was lovely to be able to just sit outside the hotel on comfortable seats and just people watch while the children enjoyed the fro-yo (frozen yogurt amazing ) or wander around the village at you leisure.In one one of the nearby parks there was an open air cinema with ample seating free for anyone who wanted to go along further along there was an outdoor stage.On the other side of the park was an outdoor swimming pool with slides.I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone with or without a family .

Wears her age wellPosted Aug 20, 2013
Pros: Charm and comfort
Cons: More extensive dinner menu in restaurant. Guest automobile registry so that staff can locat owners of cazrs that are badly parked.
Location: We drove down to Siena one day to take a look at Palio events, and could have popped into Florence for a quick visit also. Parma is very close.
I've been coming to Italy 3 or 4 times a decade since 1968 and have stayed in a wide variety of hotels from Agrigento to Aosta--every region and most of the major provinces. Regina is very near the top of my favorites list. This was my third stay here, each a week or longer, the last in 2003. She was a dazzling beauty in her heyday back in 1911. Today she is the dowager Contessa, still strikingly attractive, although sporting a few wrinkles and a little arm flab, and ever eager to embrace you with a strong Italian hug. If you are looking for a large flat screen TV, state of the art fitness room and other road warrior conveniences, go elsewhere. Regina is all about charm, welcoming warmth, and nostalgia. The staff will unflinchingly go above and beyond to meet you special needs, and the sumptuous buffet breakfast is a dieter's nightmare. Lovers. romantics. and seekers of a long lost civilized charm will find satisfied comfort in the Contessa's hug. Our most recent stay was during the run-up to this year's Ferragosto holiday and there was an overabundnace of late night amplified "music" from the piazza. The noise ended after midnight, but was very intrusive while it lasted.

Grand old hotelPosted Jun 27, 2013
We arrived at the location where the sat nav said the hotel was - and couldn't find it. We were only paying 39€ so it had to be a small place down a back street. Stood in the square we looked up and up a bit more and there it was - Grand Hotel. We had a room - well I say a room, a suite, 2 bathrooms and a lobby, all in excellent condition and clean. Breakfast was a banquet - we left smiling with full bellies promising to come back. Don't judge a book by the price of the room!!!

What a place at a brilliant price. Grand in the name def covers it - beautiful building, spotless room, very pleasant helpful service from stunning receptionist. And the breakfast - most choice I've seen and all tasted great in stunning dining room.

Great hotel. Excellent valuePosted Jun 7, 2013
Pros: Location, and the fading grandeur!
Cons: Needs updating
Location: In the middle of town, but quiet and easy to walk to bars etc
Great hotel for the money.n Great location, staff very helpful. Bikes were useful to see the town, and free. Overall a great choice for what we wanted. We decided to stay an extra night because the room was so large and comfortable. Obviously the hotel has seen grander times, but brilliant value for money. Will say here again next year on route to Greece.
