This is exactly how a city hotel should be. At the heart of Turin, a few minutes walk from all the main sites, the room (502, a deluxe double on the renovated 5th Floor) was well appointed, with WiFi that worked, two bathrooms and plenty of light, with a view of a campanile that twice a day pealed a loud carillon in a very Italian way but not every hour, thank goodness.
Public rooms are both comfortable and intimate, the bar is cosy and generous in its servings and nibbles.
Breakfast was the usual international buffet but the hot stuff needed to be hotter. Ordering hot food off the breakfast menu was not encouraged but possible and surprisingly cheap and good.
Reception staff were very helpful and attentive.
We shall definitely return to the Sitea when next in Torino
