This is an old hotel, think of it as a quaint hotel. It's in a nice location in Turin so you can walk everywhere.
The rooms are small and oldish. I stayed here solo so it worked for me, can't imagine how couples would be comfortable here. I booked a deluxe room and went down to the front desk to ensure I actually received one. Ruben, a grumbly individual (which stood out to me - since everyone else at the property was super friendly and nice), claimed the deluxe and standard rooms are similar in size and the only large rooms are junior suites. So I guess I paid extra for a robe and some marble in the bathrooms.
The room has poor lighting and while it does have a work desk, there are no outlets anywhere near it. They offer a free minibar with water and a few juices, but it was only restocked every other day during my stay.
The best thing about this place is the property:
1- They have a beautiful little courtyard where you can enjoy the buffet breakfast. Unfortunately it's not the best spread but they do have hard boiled eggs and some fresh fruits (but also some canned ones).
2- They have a wonderful living room area with couches where you can read a book or newspaper.
3- And they have an absolutely wonderful spa with sauna, steam room, aromatic bath and pool. They claim to have a hot tub, but it isn't hot. They keep it set to 34C (93F). Think of it more as a lukewarm tub. The shower in your room is hotter. Clearly the temps should be set from 38-40 if they want people to relax and soak in there. They claimed they can't do that for bacterial reasons (although a cursory google search will show proper hot tub temps up to 40C).
They also have free bicycles on offer so you can bike around the lovely park.
If you plan on using the spa daily then you'll likely get a bang for your buck and it'd be worthwhile to stay here. However, if you are not planning on using the spa - the value proposition doesn't cut it.
