I did not choose this b&b; I was referred while in transit because the b&b I had booked in Turin (well in advance) was undergoing emergency repairs. For various reasons we had little choice but to accept the referral. This was our last night in Europe, with a long-haul flight ahead, so we were keen that we should go out in style - and we did. Casa Cavour is a one-room b&b in an historic building in an attractive part of the city: close to Porta Susa station, upmarket shops including Diesel, and a fantastic wine bar around the corner. Our host, Ilaria, was perfectly accommodating although she did not meet us when we arrived - indeed we never met her - and other arrangements had to be made to get the key to our room. The room was small, dark and elaborately decorated (some would think stylishly, others would find it intimidating) in a modern Baroque-Gothic manner. The king-sized bed was very comfortable and we had a good night's sleep (thank heavens). The major problem was the even-smaller, very clean bathroom, which was fitted out with ultra-modern appliances. This did not dispel the fact that the shower recess was untenable: you literally could not move in it, or even turn around - and we are not fat people, or disabled. The steps up to it were narrow, awkward and slippery: in short, very dangerous; so much so that I had to be helped out of the shower. Breakfast was via a voucher in a little cafe a couple of doors down - it seemed fine but we had to rush it. All in all, a good location and clean; suitable for a brief stay if you are willing to risk or go without the shower. In those circumstances 80Eu p.n. might seem a bit steep ...
