I chose this hotel because of it's location in regard to Porta Susa. What I found was that it was conveniently located and took less than 5 minutes walk from the train station.
The hotel staff were friendly and checked me in very quickly. I had also written them an email asking when I could check-in and they responded in good time, which was appreciated.
The buffet breakfast was very well laid out with lots of choice available. I'm sure most tastes would be catered for. However, it was a shame that real fruit juice wasn't readily available (or perhaps was and wasn't marked).
The room was spacious enough and I had been given a single room. Satelite TV was available and many channels were free. However, I would say two things about the room itself. The carpet was a little worn and the power of the water coming out of the shower wasn't great. When you're in a hurry and you need a quick shower then don't count too much on this one!
I paid around £55 per night during my stay and for what I got I would say it was good value for money. Considering a buffet breakfast was in the price then I would go back again if needed.
