My wife and I spent 4 nights in this hotel in the middle of August on our first visit to Turin. The Dock Milano was selected primarily due to its location - we flew into Milan Malpensa and took the 2 hourly direct bus to Turin - the bus stop is opposite the hotel, and also the favourable reviews on tripadvisor. It is approx. a 25 minute walk from the hotel to the city centre (or 7/8 minute tram journey) though the style of architecture of the buildings in the centre of Turin means that the vast majority of pavements are under cover providing shelter from the elements (be it sun or rain).
Our room was situated on the first floor overlooking the Via Cernaia but we experienced very little street noise. The room was clean (an essential point), spacious and comfortable with a fridge, safe and TV (no English speaking channels). The toilet / shower room was also clean and functional.
Breakfast was a hot / cold buffet and was perfectly acceptable. All the hotel personnel we encountered were friendly and helpful. We certainly found no problems whatsoever during our stay and would certainly recommend this hotel as good value for money. As a previous reviewer stated there are not many restaurants in the immediate vicinity of the hotel but we ate twice at the Cernaia 31 restaurant across the Via Cernaia from the hotel and found it to be excellent value.
On a general point this was our first visit to the city - we have visited all the other major Italian cities (some many times) - and we were very impressed with Turin. The city does not appear to "sell itself" as a tourist destination but it has interesting museums and beautiful piazzas and is not expensive - well worth a visit.
