I recently stayed here (Sept. 9-14) and had a very pleasant experience. My husband and I have stayed here a few other times when we travel to Turin for his business. The hotel is in a good location that is right across the street from a Metro station. You can ride on the Metro for 1.50 euros a ride and it will take you into the City Center. It's about a 20 minutes ride.
The hotel itself is fairly new, so it is modern in design. The rooms are spacious and the bathrooms are fairly spacious and bright.
During prior stays, the air conditioning felt as though it was not adequate. The room was always hot. But this time, it seemed to be working well and we were cool. European air conditioning isn't as strong as it is in the US, so it's always an adjustment when you travel there, if you are used to strong air conditioning.
There is a complimentary breakfast buffet that is quite satisfactory. There are always scrambled eggs and some sort of warm meat, cheeses, cold meats, yogurt, fresh fruit salad, cereal, hard boiled eggs, fresh croissant and toast and some sweet breakfast cakes as well. Plenty to eat, that's for sure.
Service is pleasant at this hotel and helpful. There is parking in an underground garage which is helpful if you have a car. Internet (wi-fi) is available, but you may have to pay for it. My husband works for a company that has a deal with this hotel which allows for free internet service.
I would definately recommend this hotel.
