1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2010

Unfortunately, my experience of the Hotel Orchidea did not reflect the generally positive reviews listed on this website. I chose the hotel for its cheap rate and good location near Porta Susa and the city center; however, when I arrived, I discovered pubic hairs and a filthy bathroom in my reserved room. After speaking with the receptionist, she did offer me a room change, which seemed somewhat comforting. However, after finding actual excrement stains on the lid-less toilet in the next room, I was too horrified to stay. This hotel is where the traveler on a budget comes to die. I highly recommend the Hotel Dock Milano, which is in the piazza by Porta Susa, much quieter, quite clean, and only 10 euros more than this place.

Hotel is located close to the Porta Susa station which I believe is less than 30 min to the airport by bus services. It is an old building with a clean and good size room (we had a double room) offering the basics. If you are not intending to spend a long time in your room this can be a great choice. The shower area was very small with some water leaking but it was clean. Staffs are very nice and friendly and let us to check in a bit earlier. Breakfast is good and enough. You have to pay for air con. and internet which is a negative point. I bought an internet voucher which didn’t work. I asked the reception and they offered me another one for free which didn’t work again. There are good restaurant around which you can keep the budget low. It is easy to get to the city centre by tram (10-15 min). I recommend this place for the people who don’t want to spend a lot and still get an acceptable quality.

I think the hotel is over rated with 3 stars as a 3* hotel would have air conditioning as standard and wifi as standard for free. In the hotel you must pay 5 euros for 12 hours of wifi and another 5 euros for a night of air conditioning. In all 3* hotels this comes as gratis as a standard. The rooms are ok not brilliant. And the ensuite room well there is not much there either as it is very old and somewhat unclean. I think the hotel is only good for one night even then your maybe better off at a bed and breakfast which is cheaper. I would also like to say there is no fridge in the rooms for the boiling summer heat.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2009

Stayed in this hotel for three nights on a work trip to Turin in the end of February 2009. Got a good deal through Booking.com, double room for single use 45 euros/night.
Room was a large one with a balcony to the street (pleasantly quiet street and area) with a little small bathroom. Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful and the breakfast enough to keep you going for next few hours. Hotel is located is only a short walk from Porta Susa train station where the trams and local buses pass and the buses from Torino airport also come/leave. The quarters near the hotel are middle-class and have many very decently priced restaurants. Good value for those who want to avoid over-priced eating and eat in a more local atmosphere, still only a walk away from the city centre. I would definitely stay in this hotel and area of the city, if I ever went back to Turin.
