This modern hotel building is on the outskirts of Turin in a somewhat seedy area, where local n'erdowells and winos assemble on a nearby bridge to shout and hassle each other. However, from the next bridge over the river, it is a quick 5 stops on the number 11 bus to the centre.The rooms are comfortable, modern and clean. Although the WiFi system is very fast, the t.v is a curiosity. I was handed a control panel for the cable/satellite box on check in but could not get the system to work ( a traditional cathode ray tv with box) and had to ask management for assistance.The shower in the showeroom gives and powerful but difficult to control water supply.Strangely, there is a clear glass window, covered by a fixed vertical blind, between the showeroom and the bedroom! The staff are very polite and helpful. The is a small bar from where you may purchase drinks on request at reception. A cold buffet breakfast is provided and offers a limited supply of cereals, bread, cheese,meats and cakes and a wide selection of yoghurts and fruit.The hotel is used extensively by business clientele and as they want an early departure, the breakfast room is very busy around 8am but much quieter at around 9am!
