The hotel was well situated for transport and sightseeing. The reception staff were very obliging. Our twin room was a little on the small side, with only room for one upright chair at the desk (no place to sit except the bed). However the bathroom did have separate bath and shower. Efficient aircon. The hotel appeared to cater for the business client although there were obviously other tourists staying. The breakfast was standard fare, drinks from a machine, which is fine when you have discovered which drink suits your taste. The hotel did not have any leaflets on 'Turin Attractions' which would have been useful. Having said that we found the Turin tourist office did not have any English leaflets on the various palaces (used the German one, which we found easier to translate). We usually research a city before visiting but on this occasion we booked last minute and only had basic info with us. We did feel that the tourist office could have had more information to promote some of the fabulous palaces there are in the city and surrounding area. Particularly how to get to some of the palaces on the outskirts of the city by public transport. Enjoyed our trip Hotel Diplomatic is fine for a short break.
