“A sweet place called home in Turin”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

Everything about this B&B is fantastic! Azzurra is such lovely hostess - the 100 years old room with probably one of the best views in the city; the home baked cookies smell that welcomes guests to come home; breakfast warms your heart... It is everything I wanted for a holiday stay but more! More useful tips - location is fantastic ( almost walking distance to all the places you want to visit); room reco is vert thoughtful; you can speak either English or French ( of course Italian as well) with the girls.

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights in May. Wonderful B&B run by 2 lovely younger women who were extremely pleasant and helpful. Their English is limited but we managed fine. Email correspondence was quick. Breakfast was abundant and home baked, enjoyed in our room or on our balcony over Via Po with a partial view of the Piazza. Our room had a private bathroom across the hall, the other has an en suite. One night was a little warm so we asked for a fan the next day, which they provided. The location could not be more central and ideal for enjoying beautiful Torino. With the building elevator and interior courtyard it feels like staying in an apartment as opposed to a sterile hotel. The rate is not cheap but due to the location and personal service, it's well worth it. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Only 2 rooms, but the en suite is probably best, although the other has a long balcony.

This B&B run by two nice girls is very special. Decorations are a bit "fake Paris", or fake chic. Though its small (only 4 rooms), its location on the central square in Turin is great. Breakfast is abundant, Azzura really can bake wonderful things. The choice of the four homemade jams still make my mouth water. Checking and out requires some arrangements, because its forbidden to park on the square (do it nevertheless, on a taxispot or invalid spot; when I explained to the passing police officer it was no problem at all). Parking can be done in the underground garage (30 euros a day) or for free in Via Siena (the girls will tell you about it), 8 min walk from the B&B. We parked there for two days without any problem. Recommended to anyone.

This B&B is a special one. It has very few rooms (we could only count two) and they are very nicely done up, with antique furniture. The rooms are large and very comfortable, with a little side-sofa to hang out during the day. There is also a little balcony overlooking the piazza. . Shower and bathroom were good and also very nicely decorated. Breakfast was really yummy, the owner Azzurra really knows how to bake a cake!

Location is perfect; Piazza castello is in the heart of Torino with plenty of museums and churches to visit. There are many of lovely cafes near, so you can stop for aperitivo or coffee anytime.
I really recommend this place, although the rates are not cheap, it is worth the investing as it will make your stay in Torino even more memorable.

Room Tip: We stayed in the camera Indaco, which was a little more pricey but also really lovely!

This is an excellent BnB. Great location on Piazza Castello, although our room overlooked Via Po. The front door is almost next door to Caffè Mulasano, which is one the most atmospheric in Turin. The BnB is run by two young woemn who take real care over their guests. Beautiful and large rooms, full of antiques and curiosities. Comfortable beds: one night it was a bit noisy, but in gneral very quiet. Excellent breakfast featuring home made pastries and jams, and delicious coffee. The BnB doesn't get many English visitors, so English speaking is limited, but the owners are very friendly.
