“Unbeatable location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2012

Stayed for a night in this hotel. The best thing about it is its location, which is stellar, as it is right in the middle of everything. Every location worth visiting is within walking distance, and it feels very safe at night, too. Staff manning the reception was very kind. Nonetheless, the cleanliness left much to be desired. I ended up with a case of bed bugs after my stay, which made the rest of my holiday quite uncomfortable. Beds are very uncomfortable as the mattresses need changing. The shared bathroom was usually clean.

I stayed here just for one night as a single traveler. The room I had was basic and simple; nothing flashy at all, but for the price and location it sufficed for one night with the all the basics a girls needs - her own private bathroom. The best part was that it is located right in the middle of Piazza San Carlo, a wonderful lively square, with two beautiful churches to visit right on the square.

NO Airconditioning. Basically the attic of the building. Hair balls so bad in sink and shower we thought they would overflow.

Stayed for one night in January 2011 (Double + Triple).
+ Incredible location, just in heart of the city. Very good value.
– The rooms are old-furnished, no hooks for towels in bathroom.

Not a hotel so much as a bed without breakfast. Room was large and comfortable & staff were helpful, and it was very reasonably priced for the good location.

This hotel is simply perfect if you are young and on vacation Excellent value for money it is ideally located on one of the most beautiful squares in Turin. The hotel is run by a lovely couple who go out of their way to help you. The rooms are rather small but OK though there is no air conditioning, only a (decently functioning) fan. Unfortunately I was there for a conference in the height of a very hot summer. The heat made sleep difficulat and this was compounded by the noise from surrounding bedrooms which were occupied by young male workers who seemed not to need any sleep. After sleeping about four hours over two nights I decided to swotch hotels. I went to the Hotel Victoria, which is where my colleagues were staying. I slept well in an air conditioned room with all the comforts, but I found to my surprise that I missed the charm of San Carlo!

We booked a stay at this hotel because of its location. When we checked in, we were told that there had been a mix-up in our reservation and that they did not have a room for us. To their credit, they found us another place and paid any extra cost. When we came back to check in for our second night, we found that a "private double" did not include a private bath. However, the place was clean, and the location really was primo. The two common shower facilities were marginal, one being much too small and the other not having an adequate enclosure. The guy that runs the place is very nice and speaks very good English. It wasn't great, just ok.
