This is one of those places from a bygone era. A hotel well past its prime, but still oozing genteel grace and charm. It's conveniently located on a small park close to Porta Nuova station and a short stroll away from the busy central Turin area.
Rooms are big and comfortable, with large en-suite bathrooms. and small balconies (if you're facing the park). Portable air-conditioning units have been placed in the rooms, with an exhaust vent cut through the balcony door to allow hot air to escape. I don't know how effective this arrangement would be, but fortunately in September we didn't need to use it. Staff were efficient and friendly, and most spoke reasonable English. The included breakfast was also very good.
We were only here for one night, en route from Paris to Cinque Terre, and had chosen Turin as it seemed a logical break in the rail journey. What we didn't realise was just how beautiful this town is. If there ever is a next time, we would love to revisit and give this place a lot more time than we had. It's a lovely city off the normal tourist routes, with a grace and history to rival some other more fancied destinations.
