“Ok hotel......better options available for same price”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

Stayed here for 3 nights as a group of 10, so had 4 rooms. One of the rooms had to be changed as you couldn't stand the cigarette smoke smell (even though it was a non smoking room) and the air conditioner made a ridiculously loud banging noise. One of the rooms had a terrible shower that was only a bath with no shower curtain and a hand held nozzle that could not be mounted to wash your hair etc. The other rooms did have a great shower which had side jets as well as ones overhead and were probably the best part of this hotel. Rooms in need of a makeover and were so small that in the doubles you had to jump over the bags to get to the beds, though one of the triple rooms did have a closet/storage room which gave a little more space in that room. Breakfast ok, but nothing extraordinary. Location- outside main part of city, but within 5-10 minutes walk of metro station that takes you right into the heart of the city. Staff were ok, but not very polite. Wifi- ok when actually working, but codes either for 1 hr or 10 hours and once expired you had to get a new code. the problem being that each time it would only give 1 or 2 codes which could not be shared so most of the time our party did not have access to the wifi and staff made no attempt to tell us when this would be fixed, but simply said machine not working.

I stayed in Hotel Giotto for 4 nights, the hotel itself was very reasonable for the price (good value for money)
The room was clean and it was enough for 1 person (not too big not too small).
The stuff was friendly and tried to help us although they didn't know English too much.
The location of the hotel is quite far from the city center, but it is close to the river which is lovely at night with many good restaurants around it - try the pizza!

We've stay in Hotel Giotto for two nights and we don't have anything to say against the hotel itself. Nice room, without much space but mainly because we asked for an extra bed. The breakfast was OK, but not extraordinary and the staff was friendly and helpful. The area doesn't look safe at all, especially at night and we are advised by the staff to put the car in the hotel private parking (paid). It's not close to the city center, but it is easily achievable by metro (only three stops). The AC in the room was quite noisy and we had to turn it off during night. The wi-fi connection worked perfectly.

Not sure what others are talking about. The lobby seemed run down and somewhat grey. Got into my room, althought the pillow cases had been washed, there were stains on one of the covers of the pillows. The box spring cover was stained and dirty, and there is no stand up shower, just a hand held spray device. I stay over 100 nights a year for work, and have traveled Europe for the last 7 months, and this, for the price, was definitely the worst hotel I've stayed at. For the room I had, I would pay no more than €40 a night, and I can assure you I paid much more than that. If you are an American traveler, ignore the rating and trust me, it's not what we're used to.
The only good thing I will say is the internet worked well, that was about it.

We stayed in Hotel Giotto for three nights in late November. The hotel is in a quiet largely residential district and we had no problems with noise. With two parents and two kids, we stayed in a little suite under the roof with a small "roomlet" for the kids (just large enough for 2 rollaway cots), separated from our room by a door and large closet which allowed us a bit of peace. The rooms were clean and small. The bathroom had a bathtub and shower although you couldn't stand as it was under the angle of the roof. Showering while kneeling was an interesting experience.

For windows, it had large skylights in the angled roof, which you could open and close and from which you could see the roofs of Torino and the Alps in the distance.

The service was friendly and prompt. The continental breakfast (included in the price) was good, but not very varied and far from spectacular. The hotel is pleasant and unassuming in an earnest kind of way, with fixtures and decor dating from the 1980s or early 1990s.

The main drawbacks were that 1) although we had a non-smoking room, smoke poured into the room through the bathroom vent whenever guests below smoked, 2) the heating was overactive so that I sometimes overheated even with the window open, and 3) the hotel was located far (1.5 km) from the historic city centre (but close to the Borgo Medievale and Automobile Museum). But these problems were not unexpected in an economy hotel. The price was good, and we were happy with our experience.

We stayed on the Hotel Giotto in early October--the hotel was booked for us by the organizers of the meeting we were attending. We really enjoyed our stay, the staff was very friendly and helpful. Our group consisted of 7 people (1 senior, a family of four with children ages 8 and 10, one couple), the hotel worked well for all of us. The family group had a room for 4, not spacious but definitely sufficient for our needs. The rooms all had air conditioning, did take us all a few minutes to figure out how it worked but once the system was figured out, the rooms were nice and cool. Breakfast was reasonable, they did occasionally run out of certain items. The woman who served coffee etc in the breakfast room was wonderful and she made excellent coffee and cappucinos! The hotel was a block from the tram line making access to both the Lingotto (site of our meeting) and city center very easy. The hotel staff gave excellent recommendations for restaurants in the area. If we get back to Turin (depends on meeting locations), we would stay at the Giotto again.
