Overall enjoyed my stay here for the last two nights in Italy - Turin is a fantastic city in which to start or end your Italian vacation. I agree with the other reviewer about some small items that would be easy to update to make this a solid 4-star rating, but since I couldn't give it a 3.5 I rounded up to a 4. I'll state that I would definitely stay here again if in Turin mainly due to the location - it is right across the street from the Porta Nuova train station and there is a tram stop right outside the hotel as well. Negatives with being right across the street from the train station, however, include the noise - it wasn't intolerable but you could hear either trains or trams well into the evening; and sometimes there are some sketchy characters around a train station, but that's going to be the case at most any of the many hotels in Turin close to the stations. Never felt threatened though.
There are several great restaurants, gelaterias, etc. all within a couple of blocks walk, and getting to the main Turin attractions (Egyptiain Museum, Mole Antonelliana, et al) really isn't too bad to walk. You can take trams part way or just walk the entire way. The front desk staff were phenomenal - hardest/most diligent hotel workers we encountered in Italy. So helpful on directions, recommendations, reservations, everything - the service was very personal and the amount of time they would spend helping out was just great. The decor, while kept clean and in good condition was a bit dated; but cleanliness is my #1 objective, and they did well on that. The room was kind of small, as was the bathroom - shower was tiny, but everything worked well. The breakfast was plentiful, high-quality, and very well presented. The breakfast area doesn't hold a lot of guests, but it was not full when I went down there, and tere was never a shortage of food. Excellent experience, wish I could have made it the second day there.
