Great hotel! Very close to Porta Susa (10 mins from the train platform), so it is an excellent choice for train travelers. Helpful staff, in particular the "new" staff with skinny head who speaks very good english. He showed us where to visit, what transportation method to take, handled our luggages, etc. The room provided a complimentary Turin guide which has been very very helpful to us, it costs E4.5 as listed on the book cover!
Bathroom is basic but clean. The shower space is a bit tiny but okay for Asians. The room overlooks a nice courtyard, feeling like living with the local residents. Good choice of TV channels because they got skysports that enabled us to watch UEFA Cup Final in the room!
There is a tiny grocery store nearby for you to shop your daily necessities.
