This is a lovely hotel. The location is great. There is a metro station right outside but we walked into the city centre (direct route, doesn't take too long and of course you can view the sights on the way). The staff are really nice, extremely helpful. The continental breakfast is just perfect with filter coffee on tap but a variety of 'proper' Italian coffees on request. There's meat, cheese, cereals, croissants, fruit... Our room had clearly been recently refurbished and was extremely comfortable, with a lovely bathroom, a very hot shower, mini bar (without usual extortionate prices) and we had a balcony with a great view over busy Torinese square. Oh, and lovely proper lighting (lamps etc.) and heating you can adjust. Honestly, I can't rave enough about this place. I have family in Turin and this will be my hotel of choice from now on.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel 28th 29th September and have since wondered why its not a 3 star hotel ? The rooms are spotless the breakfast plentiful and delicious. It's just above the station and in no time you are at downtown Torino . Eataly is within walking distance so is the National Motor Museum. Everyone at this hotel was very helpful and welcoming we can not recommend this place enough . Thank you

The hotel is in a great location. Very close to the metro to get you the short distance to the city center. The staff was amazing and very helpful. The breakfast was wonderful and the coffee was out of this world!

Four of us arrived here after a long journey from the French Alps via Switzerland, when we arrived the owner rushed outside making sure that we were allotted one of the hotels car parking spaces, this was a sign of what was to come as they couldn't have been more helpful during our three night stay if they tried, the room was the largest we had on our 16 night tour of Europe and was clean and fresh, the mini-bar was a welcome sight after such a long drive and for once the owners had decided to make the prices of the contents realistic, and the well stocked continental breakfast kept us all going until at least lunchtime.
Getting around was so easy with both buses to the city centre and the underground literally straight outside the front, the bus ended up been the best choice as the underground skirts around the centre some what and a little walk ensues, the café bar opposite on the far right corner was our café of choice for a late drink/snack and the thing what hit us all, was the friendliness of the locals, not only in the area but especially of the family who run the hotel, keep going and this will be a four star establishment in no time - if ever I end up back in Torino this is where I'll head to stay.

Room Tip: All rooms seem to be of the high quality that we enjoyed

I arrived at the Hotel, slightly apprehensive on the looks from the outside, however on entering discovered how nice it was with a friendly welcome from the owner.
My room was fantastic just like I imagined a beautique hotel would be.
Breakfast was also superb, everything you could wish for.
I can only wish more Hotels had these standards.
