“What a treat”
Reviewed May 9, 2014 via mobile

As a treat it's lovely, but budget well as once you've added c.€15 tourism tax, €30 parking, though drinks are correct - the bill mounts steeply. Having stayed in most of Turins 4 stars and other 5, this is the sumnnum, however only represents value up to €150 per room per night, above that go elsewhere. Ps if its a nice day, dont forget to have breakfast al fresco on thier nice terrace

Really well appointed hotel in a great location. Staff okay. Buffet breakfast fine. We had a suite on the fifth floor. Nothing to complain about there. As other reviewers have said - fabulous bathroom. Lovely wee pool and spa area. Only niggle is having to pay for the Internet service. On this trip we stayed in 3 hotels and one apartment of the same standard (Milan, Turin, Genoa and Florence) and all had free wifi except this one. Oh, and dear manager please don't respond with the standard 'its the policy of the hotel group' reply that appears on lots of other reviews here. Far better to let your bosses know guests aren't happy and they should include internet access in the price. Other than that, I'm happy to recommend the hotel to other travellers.

Dear Guest,
thanks for choosing Principi di Piemonte and for taking the time to post your review. We are glad to learn that your stay met your expectations and that you would recommend our hotel to other travellers! As for the internet charging fees, I am sorry that it really depends on our chain policies, as you have read in other replies; I am sure other hotel chains also apply these charging fees in Italy and in Europe.
Nevertheless, we look forward to seeing you again in Torino!
With our best regards

I spent three nights at the Principi di Piemonte for a wedding. The hotel is excellently located right in the city centre close to the Via Rome with excellent shopping facilities. It's a five minutes walk from the Porta Nuova railway station and all the main sights are within walking distance. The hotel itself is very well maintained. Check-in was efficient and friendly as was the staff during the whole stay. The room was quite spacious with a enviable marble bathroom with individual shower, bath tub plus bidet. The room was spotless, the bed was comfortable - and the view was fantastic with a panorama over the alps. I guess all guest rooms have an excellent view due to the fact that all lower floors are function/ball rooms and guest rooms only start above the roofs of the surrounding buildings. Despite the very central location silence at night was no topic thanks to a pedestrian zone behind the hotel, decent windows and soundproof walls.
The underground spa was also quite nice with decently sized pool, sauna, steam bath and gym. The water could have been a little warmer, though.
The only small disappointment was the breakfest buffet which couldn't quite match the class of the place as a whole.
Finally the wedding party at the ballroom was excellent. The hotel and staff obiously has lots of experience. The ballroom itself is really glamourous with golden mosaics covering the walls. Food and drinks were of top quality.
Highly recommended for a stay in Turin!

This Hotel is in a great location in the heart of Turin, just minutes walk from the shopping, sights and main train train station. The rooms are good quality as is the rest of the place. Rather old world charm and not 'hip cool' but comfortable... Breakfast was good and included in the price. BUT for some stupid reason the hotel insist on charging 25 EUR per day for use of the internet (1st hour free...). This is daylight robbery and a total ripoff and gives a bad impression of this place. Its a pity they have to be so greedy. Internet should be free in 2014...

Excellent quality hotel but there were a couple of hiccups. The staff sorted out the problem of a cold shower by changing our room, first the room was a slight down grade but fortunately a switched on young lady then up graded our room, well done to the staff. One suggestion to all 5 star hotels, could you please put in a decent hairdryer for us lovely ladies and all the men who still have hair.

I am not sure that I can recommend this as a 5 star hotel - as a 4 star hotel, then yes. The bedroom (high floor) was good, with a very high quality bathroom and wonderful views across the city. The reception staff were very disappointing - at best they were going through the motions and seemed uninterested and not engaged with customer service. A number of times they failed to offer the service expected, for example: I asked for a taxi one day and was told to go outside and call one myself! When a colleague came to the hotel to meet me, there was not security consideration as reception just passed on my room number to him and allowed him into the hotel rooms!The bar staff were excellent - friendly, efficient, pro-active. The location is certainly excellent. It was astonishing, and a poor reflection on the chain of hotels, that that they still charge for internet - it is like being back at least a decade. the breakfast was very good and with an efficient staff. Overall...not good value for money.
