On a motorcycling tour of Europe with my son, I was looking for accomodation in Turin within easy taxi distance of the centre.
Hotel Parco was nowhere near its stated location on TomTom, but about a kilometre further up the hill! The proprieter welcomed us (also a Biker - BMW Adventure 1200) and found a Russian staff member who spoke excellent English. We settled in on the top floor with spectacular views of Turin from the hilltop and the adjacent castle. A taxi was ordered for us, and the same staff member came out to tell the taxi driver where we wished to go.
Breakfast was "continental" but quite satisfying and we took our time leaving - which was no problem. Parking was very secure, with a roller shutter door securing a large garage area.
