The Mercure Torino Royal confirms what I already knew about Mercure Hotels i.e. that they mix good, comfortable hotels with sub-standard properties. Unfortunately the Mercure Royal Torino is in the second category. The building may date back to the 60's or 70's and renovation has only been partial. Probably the minimum needed to get the Mercure brand but far what would be necessary to fully modernize the property and turn it into an attractive hotel. Room size is correct but decoration shows clear bad taste with flashy, ill-matched colors. Maintenance is also obviously poor with walls and furniture in bad condition. Replacing faucets is definitely not enough to renovate the bathroom which was small, dark and with horrible dark green tiles. Manual sliding shutters also give the impression that time stopped many years ago. In addition, I was unable to find foreign speaking TV channels which is strange for a hotel supposedly catering to foreign travellers. Lobby and restaurant suffer from the same shortcomings as the rest of the property: they look tired and worn-out. Breakfast - correct - is served in the small and grotty restaurant. A last motive of irritation is the car park: 15 € for an external spot and 18 € for a covered spot is a rip-off especially when room fare is 55 € excluding breakfast. I spent one night at the hotel on my way to France for holidays but should I stay in Torino again I would certainly select another hotel and recommend other travellers to do the same thing.
