Carlo had problems when we arrived at the B & B. Emergency repairs had taken longer to finish than expected (perhaps a familiar situation for many of us). Carlo, however, made sure that we were not inconvenienced and offered us the best of welcomes. The B & B is small (just two rooms) and is on the second floor of the building. It has the benefit of a lift (elevator). It is comfortable and stylish in every way. The furnishing and decor show quality and taste everywhere. Our bedroom and it's newly refurbished bathroom were excellent and superbly clean. The very good breakfast was served in an equally stylish and comfortable adjoining room at a large shared table. Much of interesting Turin is within walking distance. Carlo offers " tourist information" and shares with guests his very cultured home. Recommended without reservation of any sort as an ideal base in Turin.
