I chose this hotel as it is so near to the station. Porta Susa. It proved to be excellent and good value, The decor is rich and stylish and colourful. The first room we had was a family room at the rear, excellent, huge a huge bed and bathroom. Air con, Good TV and free wi fi that worked. The return visit they gave us a room on the front we changed and were given an equal room on the rear which faces a typical Turin courtyard and is quiet and away from the road. The walk into town along the covered arcade is lovely. There are trams into town so transport is easy. A very nice restaurant across the road.
Had a couple of drinks, not expensive, the breakfast was excellent. Lots of variety and typical italian style sweet cakes.
No reservations, highly recommended, apart from make sure you have a rear room away from the road.
But then you will have checked that out with google street view.
