“Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2011

This hotel is listed as one of the Small Luxury Hotels in the guidebook but in my opinion is nowhere near that standard. Recently stayed for 2 nights in a very ordinary so called superior room - small with basic furniture.
Staff were OK but only answered queries if you asked them for advice.
The lady serving the breakfast looked very miserable and the food would be OK if you ate at 7:30am otherwise it became stale with brown fruit salad and cold scrambled eggs !!
The best thing about the hotel is its central location but there are other better hotels in the City Centre.

Town House 70 hotel was a wonderful place to stay - in a great location with fabulous and friendly staff (they were very helpful with restaurant bookings). We had a room facing onto a courtyard and it was so wonderful and quiet - bring a clock, there isn't one in the room. The big communal breakfast table is a bit of a surprise if you're not expecting it. And as other reviews have said the hotel has restricted car access, but their website explains what to do.

We stayed at Town House 70 Hotel for 2 nights to attend the recent U2 concert in Turin. I had booked a junior suite, which I felt was reasonably priced. The room was very large, with the bed in one room on the right side and a separate sitting are on the left side. Both rooms had small balcony doors that opened up and provided an excellent cross breeze. One balcony overlooked the main street, the other overlooked a small square in the interior of the hotel. The view was lovely. The room was very clean and we found the bed to be very comfortable.

The bathroom was quite large, the shower included 2 shower heads and plenty of space. The bathroom was also very clean. I'm not sure how long the hotel has been in existence but everything looked very new. The only drawback I can cite is no wireless connection in the rooms, you can get a wired connection only. However, you can access their wireless network (for free) in the public areas on the ground floor. The staff at the hotel were very nice and we had no problem communicating with them in English.

The location is perfect, as you can walk out from the hotel, take a few steps and be on a main shopping street that is filled with shops and cafes. The hotel is about 15 minutes walking distance from Porta Nuova train station. A cab ride from the station to the hotel will cost about 6 or 7 Euro, but it's just as easy to walk. We did not get time to visit the Egyptian museum in Turin, but it's also within a 10 -15 minute walk from the hotel.

As small boutique hotels go, I thought Town House 70 was a great find. I would recommend staying here instead of a big chain hotel. We thought our experience was much more personalized and loved the location.

Very good hotel--'small luxury hotels' member, great bathroom and bedroom and work / sitting room separated by partial wall. There was an outage of the air-conditioning & the wifi on the first night, but it was corrected by the second day, and all was well. Small warning---car access is restricted because of tram-lines and in order to find it we had to park elsewhere and walk. There is hotel-affiliated parking for 20 euros per night.

icely designed and big room. Breakfast was rich in variety and well prepared. The spot is perfect since it is on the city center.

We loved Town House 70! Each room has a sitting room with desk area, flat screen TV and small refrigerator in addition to bedroom, large nice bathroom, good breakfast in included. Although hotel caters to business people, we felt very welcome here (we were going to see the Shroud of Turin exhibition) and staff was extremely helpful. Each place they recommended to us for a meal was good!

Only tip: ask for room on the courtyard side, the other side is noisy if they have not yet turned on the air conditioning and you want to open windows, as we did.

4 of us travelled to Turin (Torino) for the 2010 World Figure Skating Championships. Before our arrival, the hotel helped us to get reservations for 2 popular restaurants. Whenever we needed to catch a taxi, it was there within minutes. When the public computer didn't work, the receptionist let us use their extra one. Nothing seemed to be too great a request. The room (Jr Suite) was enormous, with a sitting area with its own TV. The bed was huge and extremely comfortable. Amenities well above average.
The location of this hotel is perfect - just walk out the door and turn a different direction each day for a new treat. Turin doesn't seem to have a lot of foreign tourists - perhaps they stick to the more popular cities - but it is a delightful place. Great food, amazing architecture and in the background, the snow-capped Alps. And of course, chocolate shops everywhere.
