We spent 4 nights at Hotel Azalea, and while we were initially a little hesitant when we saw the reception area and the room, which are definitely not fancy, we did enjoy our stay and think the hotel is good value for money. Our room was clean and a comfortable size and while the bath was tiny, the shower was good, with plenty of hot water. Wifi internet worked well. The walls are pretty thin so we did sometimes hear the other guests. Our room faced the street so we also experienced some noise from the restaurant below and from passersby. Some rooms face an internal garden and would be quieter but we liked being able to look out and see what was going on outside. We found the bed and pillows too firm for our taste, a common problem in Italian hotels.
The best part of staying at Hotel Azalea is the location. The neighborhood near the hotel has many restaurants, cafes, and shops so we enjoyed just walking around. It’s also an easy walk to most museums and other tourist sites around the city. For those few that are farther away, there’s easy access to Torino’s extensive system of buses and trams, with stops for many different lines just a short walk from the hotel. We bought a TorinoCard for each of us and thought it was a great value, as it gave us free access to buses and trams plus entrance to more museums and tourist spots than we had time to visit.
