“So many positives”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

We chose this hotel simply for its convenience and proximity to Torino Porta Susa station (for the early morning TGV direct to Paris) as well as the Avis car hire branch where we needed to return our car and we were not disappointed. Infact this hotel has many more positives to report including: large spacious rooms, and a decent sized bathroom, a big balcony and doors opening onto it. All perfectly clean. Very helpful staff at the front desk. Convenient parking right outside, useful for the luggage drop off before returning the hired car. There was no urgency to move the car either until we had checked in and were ready to return it. This was appreciated as parking is a premium. Free wifi. All this for a very competitive rate.

Excellent proximity to Torino Porta Susa. If you have heavy luggage there is an elevator just a few steps from their door which drops you down into the station. No need to struggle with stairs. The station is one of the cleanest and classiest I have seen in a long time. It's only a pleasure to travel through there. Avis is on the other side of the station, and there too you get excellent, pleasant service from Lorenzo.

The gelateria on the corner La Romana gives you instant access to some of Torino's best ice-cream. A great restaurant within easy walking distance is La Capannina (see my other reviews) and the main centre is also a very pleasant, even if a bit of a lengthy walk. Could take you 30-60min depending on how many shops you stop in at.

This is a great hotel choice, it's not overly glam, but it delivers. Wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

Our three-night stay here started out badly. We booked a room with a group through a travel agent. When we arrived at the hotel, it was very hot and we discovered that the air conditioning was not available. Our room faced a very busy street, and with the window open, it was quite noisy. So, I requested a room facing the garden. We were then given a much smaller room with a very small bed. When we first settled in this room, I used the free Wi-Fi (that barely worked) to check the hotel prices. At that time they were offering the room at about 82 euro for the first two nights, then 60 some euro for the last night. We had paid 95 euro through the travel agency and had ended up with a very substandard room.

I went to the reception desk and explained my dissatisfaction, especially given the price that we had paid. The young woman at the desk was somewhat rude and said that she had already explained why the air-conditioning wasn't on (either the heat or air-conditioning could be switched on, depending on the season, but they weren't yet sure if the weather was going to stay hot). After some discussion, she suggested that I speak to her supervisor in the morning. Then, I asked her if there was a room with two single beds facing away from the street. Finally, she realized that there was and we were moved to a very nice, large room.

So, in the end we had a decent room, although we were stuck paying too much. The initial exchange with the reception clerk left me feeling that this was not a very friendly place. Other front desk staff were equally unfriendly.

Although part of the building is beautiful and old, most of the rooms are with characterless.

I will choose another hotel next time I go to Turin.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the main street are very noisy with windows open. They seemed quiet enough with the win...

Stayed for three nights at Torino Centro, in a lovely refurbished room with wooden floorboards and a modern bathroom. Our room was large, spotless, and was serviced daily before we had even finished breakfast. We had requested a quiet room on a higher floor, which we received.

Free wi-fi was available for the duration of our stay.

Breakfast was in the café next door (enter directly from Reception), with excellent coffee and a very good continental buffet with a wide range of choices.

Every member of staff we encountered was polite, friendly and helpful.

The hotel is right next to Torino Porta Susa railway station, which is served by the new Italo high speed trains. People with large luggage or mobility problems should note that there are a few stairs from the street to Reception. Construction work at the station during our stay resulted in some station exits being blocked; this was not a huge problem, it just meant there was a slightly longer walk between the station and the hotel. We did not notice any construction noise while in the hotel, and our sleep was not affected.

Central Turin and the Palazzo Reale, Palazzo Madama and Piazza Castello are a pleasant and easy 20-30 minute walk from the hotel, along Via Garibaldi; alternatively, there are buses, trams and the Metro.

For a 3-star property, we thought Torino Centro was excellent value at approx. EUR 80 per night including breakfast for two.

The hotel was spotlessly clean - the staff were generally helpful BUT the breakfast was poor and in my view the hotel was expensive for what you got.

There was a group of us visiting the hotel and the hotel lacked a common area where we could get a drink and chat without going to someone's room.

NB at the moment the New Railway Station is being completed and all the access routes to the other side of it are not fully completed.

Room Tip: Great access from the Railway station BUT more of a challenge if you want to get the other side of...

I stayed here for work and my hotel room was very clean and comfortable with good Wi-Fi.
The breakfast was ok but not amazing.
This hotel is conveniently situated next to Porta Susa station. I'd say thhat this hotel was good value for money.
