Next time I am back in Torino I'll definitely stay again in the Residence Sacchi! It is just a few blocks from Porta Nuova (main train station in Torino) and easy access to the local metro and buses. What is most impressive is that you get a full apartment for the price of a hotel room. In Italy (and Europe) this is extremely rare. The place is has 2 levels, with the sleeping room on a loft and the dining room/living room/kitchen area on the first level.
Don't be concerned about comments related to the red light district near the train station. That is way down beyond the south end of the station. The hotel is on the north end of Porta Nuova near Corso Vittorio Emmanuelle (one of the main East-West avenues).
I am also happy to report that, while on a public bus, I forgot my briefcase with my favorite laptop (Mac Air) plus other things and got off. A gentleman in the bus stopped the bus to let me know about my mistake and give me my briefcase! In general, I found Torino an excellent place to be a tourist with plenty of museums and excellent food.
