My wife and I were enjoying a trip of Italy and had to change plans to include a stay in Turin. We came across this apartment due to the good reviews and reasonable prices (approx Euro80 p/nt) and booked less than 2 weeks before staying).
It's a 5 minute walk from Porta Susa station which is a beautiful station reminding me of Paris's Charles de Gaulle Terminal One after having been recently renovated.
We were made very welcome by the front desk staff and were massively impressed by the studio apartment we choose. There's many who, if living in a £500K apartment in the middle of London, this would be positive luxury, with decent sized living area, separate bathroom and bedroom. Not that my wife and I were too bothered as there's lots to discover in Turin but there were two TV's with lots of channels!
Anyhow, the staff were very helpful to tell us where to find the local grocery shop (a Carrefour about 5 minutes walk) and nearby restaurants (one of which I've done a review for which was simply fantastic, The Bakery, about 10 minutes walk away).
Overall, this is a fantastic place to stay with a good location being near to the Metro which gets you in to downtown in less than 20 mins from leaving the apartment and stands for the things many of us look for when on holiday: good living quarters in a convenient location which doesn't cost the earth. I can only but recommend this establishment and would definitely stay again if returning to the lovely city of Turin.
