We got lost in Turin, having missed the turnoff indicated by Google Maps. Then we were confronted with a spiral parking ramp that was so steep that I probably would not have attempted it at all--my husband managed to but was glad no one was coming up--the ramp is too narrow for that. While we were there they were adding 8-9 spots of outdoor level parking, which I would choose in a minute, especially since they apparently charge 13 euros a day for going down that ramp. Our rate was the Visit Turin tariff, which I would highly recommend. It included breakfast, parking and a 2 day pass for Turin and outer regions. It also did not have that insidious 10 euro a day extra person charge, starting with the second person!! The room was a nice size and did have WiFi but at a cost of 10 euros a day--I bought a one day ticket and it worked fine. There were few amenities in the bathroom and a very very narrow shower in the bath. The room was quiet and we slept well. Breakfast was not a great example of hotel catering, especially when a tour bus was in on the weekend. Supplies are not replenished--once the cream croissants are gone, they're gone! After 7.30 there was not much fruit salad either. Coffee from the machine was poor, although real espresso seemed to be available on request. The best thing about the hotel is the metro stop across the street and the quietness of the rooms.
