“A bit worn out but good value”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

This hotel is a bit worn out but is good value in comparison with other hotels that are more centrally located. Lower in cost b/c it's not right in the center of town, this hotel still works for sight-seeing b/c it's right across the street from the metro -- an efficient 10 minute right to the Palazzo Reale; 20 minutes to Linghotto. One woman at the front desk was quite competent and helpful; the others didn't seem to know how to do anything and referred everything to her. Senior staff in the restaurant were friendly and attentive; lower level staff were less so. Our room -- #724-- needs to be updated but was large enough for the four of us. The mattress on the double bed was in horrible shape though. A decent breakfast was included and wi-fi was free. Underground parking cost Euro 13/night but there was also free parking behind the hotel itself. A decent option for an economical stay for families and short business stays. But apart from the decent price, nothing special.

Coming by car or need to rent a car ? This is ideal place, since you do not need to drive to the center, big parking available, directly in the building Europcar office. There is metro stop in front of the hotel with very easy acces to the center (12min, 1,5€ )

I would not take this train if I come by train - I would stay directly in the center...

There is decent program for priorityclub members. Take the room in 7th floor you have chance of better view.

Room Tip: room 708 - corner one with nice view...

Arrived late evening,,
Having driven from the airport, no big deal except the Avis Hire Car, broke down, the electrics failed, not that this has anything to do with the hotel, except that the staff went out of their way to help and assist me, wow, how good is that for a weary traveller, not only did they assist, they also made me welcome, so I guess this really influences my comments, the rooms and decor are to a good standard, everywhere is clean tidy and homely, menu and food is to a standard that works very well for a chain of hotels like the Holiday Inn, you know what you are getting and with great staff you will have a good experience, and ALL of the Staff appear to work as a team, great management, will stay again...

Room Tip: Go for the higher floors, great views and very quiet.

The Holiday Inn Turin-Corso Francia wouldn't have been my first choice of a hotel in Turin but as a result of a number of issues, I landed up here for a conference. Overall it's a reliable business hotel.

Technology
There's very little international cable but the internet is very reliable and fast. Heating/cooling worked well.

Experience
It's a very clean hotel and the rooms are comfortable and large as is the bed. The staff is in need of a significant personality overhaul

Food
The restaurant was disappointing. But that was my fault for being too lazy to venture out to the many good restaurants in Turin.

Cost
The rate I paid was very good - about $170. Considering there was a large convention in town, this was good value.

Location
It's location makes it good for Telecom Italia but not for downtown. But it's close to the metro station and therefore convenient to get to meetings.

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.

This is a hotel build for the winter olympics in 2006, and I think it shows on the quality of the rooms, on the surface the rooms look great, but if you scratch the surface you will see strange things, like a toilet mounted 10 degrees to the left on the wall. Beside this the hotel is great, staff is friendly and housekeping is invisible, which I think i a good thing. As other reviews state, the breakfast is expensive, there is a lot of bars and caffes outside the hotel, where you can get breakfast for 1/3 the price.
