“Fantastic B&B with a fantastic host.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

I spent a couple of nights here with a few friends on the way back from a ski trip and it was a joy to go from our slighty 'cosy' accommodation in Val Cenis to the well furnished and spacious AL Porta Susa B&B. Marco was a very gracious and helpful host who spoke excellent English and it was wonderful to get to hear a couple of my friends practising on the grand piano.
I'd definitely stay here again should I make another visit to Turin.

I spent a couple extra nights in Torino after Terra Madre and Salone del Gusto, and found Al Porta Susa through a friend. Marco was quick to respond and very accommodating, and the B&B is in a very convenient location if you're looking to explore the city center.

My second trip to Turin was greatly anticipated and thanks to the marvellous experience of staying in "Al Porta Susa", the city more than lived up to expectations. The rooms in "Al Porta Susa" were spacious, equipped with TVs and DVD player (not that there was much time in a busy schedule for either), and most had beautifully decorated ceilings. Marco, our host, was outstanding in his hospitality, friendliness and attentiveness. The accommodation is perfectly positioned for the international railway station and Metro and the city centre was within easy walking distance. Four out of our party of six came with iPads and, aside from temporary lapses in the wifi, we were all able to make good use of them during our sojourn. Let me add that the presence of a grand piano was an unexpected bonus, even if playing it revealed just out of practice I am! Well done and thanks, Marco. I hope to return one day.

Just back from Torino as a group of 6 friends for a long weekend to visit the city and Salone del Gusto e Terra Madre. Luckily we found the B&B "Al Porta Susa" available as it can accommodate a maximum of 6 guests. Location is excellent, just a few steps form the Porta Susa railway and metro stations (it will be even better as soon as the works for the new station will be competed). The apartment is on the second floor of a 19th cent. building, it can be accessed through the stairs or with a vintage wooden lift. Marco arranged everything for our arrival and welcomed us in proper Torinese style: discretely and with attention to details. The apartment is clean and with high decorated ceilings and a "touch of charm". Breakfast is generous with a wide choice (including home made bread and jams) excellent coffee and cappuccino. There is a desktop computer and a reliable wifi network available for the guests.
We have all been positively impressed by the "Al Porta Susa" and we could consider coming back. Grazie Marco!

Room Tip: All bedrooms have windows facing the busy street downstairs. It could be noisy in summer when it'...

A pleasant place to stay with a friendly welcome. The host was most willing to make recommendations of places to eat and things to see. One other review mentioned to have some earplugs because the road outside is busy and noisy overnight, and I think that is good advice if you are not used to sleeping in the city. Would go again.

If you are bored with the usual European City Hotels then I've just experienced the perfect place for you to stay in Torino! You push open large, heavy wooden doors and leave the bustle and noise of the Corso Inghilterra far behind. You are magically transported back in time in the original wrought iron lift and you alight in the cool, calm space outside Marco's beautiful apartment, inherited from his Grandparents. The ceilings are high and on occasion painted with huge detail, the windows large and the decor intelligent. My single room, called Mozart, was eloquent with loaded bookshelves, French windows onto a narrow balcony, a tropical plant climbing towards the ceiling from the floor and a delightful leather topped deak which was perfect for sitting at with my Notebook computer. Marco offers WiFi at no extra charge and there is a computer in a corner of the hall for general use. There are two bathrooms for guest use and Marco and his partner have separate rooms closed off from the B&B. The kitchen and Breakfast Room are shared, as is the beautifully proportioned Sitting Room with a Grand Piano which Marco offers the use of to any guest who has the expertise to play it. Marco hosts breakfast at 0800 and makes perfect Capuccinos, this may seem early but he has to then go to work. If you are looking for a hazy, lazy, lying about holiday neither Marco's apartment nor Torino are the right choice for you. Marco is passionate about his home town Torino and being a linguist is able to light a spark of that passion for you in a number of languages, of which his English is excellent. My single bed may not have been the most comfortable that I've ever slept in but the ambiance of the apartment as a whole was perfect. If, like me, you relish somewhere different to stay during your travels I utterly recommend Marco's apartment. Torino has much to offer too and is breathtakingly surrounded by The Alps, which seem within touching distance.

Stayed three nights at this lovely apartmet at great location. Loved the Mozart theme at the room. Really "home away from home"-feeling but it was nicer than at home.
Ask Marco what to eat at the restaurant downstears so he will tell you the name of the covered seafood pasta dish.
