“Simple and good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2014

It only takes you 7 minutes to get into town on the brand-new metro. This hotel is really all you need when visiting Torino with a family. The service is friendly. What I really appreciated was being able to park right outside the hotel (ca. EUR 10 per day). The breakfast (included in the price) was adequate, nothing special.

The hotel is also a 10 minute walk to the Lingotto (old Fiat factory) heading out of town.

This was our first visit to Torino...what a gem of a city ... overlooked by most tourists but perhaps for all the wrong reasons.

The staff was very courteous, friendly, and helpful. The breakfast was great, more than any other hostel hotel we stayed in. The rooms were very clean and the bed was great. The location was next to a Metro which made it easy to get around.

Hotel was easy to find, located in the Piazza Carducci. We walked to the tourist areas from the hotel both days we stayed here but we like to walk. It was about a 2 mile walk each way.
We had requested a "quiet room" When we arrived, they had a room that was available right away that overlooked the street or a room off the back that would be available later. We were shown both rooms. The room off the front was nice, but the one off the back was bigger, had a bigger bathroom and a bigger balcony with a table and chairs. Needless to say we took the room in the back.
The shower was a hand held shower head that could not be attached to the wall. It was cold showering and we had water everywhere!
Breakfast buffet was limited but they will make any kind of coffee you want.
Staff was very helpful and recommended good restaurants in the area.
TV had some 800 channels but no english language channels. No CNN or BBC. While these are not my favorite channels, they are better than nothing to get some news and weather.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room.

We enjoyed our weekend stay at this Hotel. It is situated right on a metro station (Carducci) so is convenient for getting around the city. it looks a little unprepossessing from the outside but we needn't have worried. The staff were welcoming and helpful, rooms clean and comfortable. We had a room facing the front but noise was not an issue. It's very good value and worth its high rating on trip advisor. Would give a 4.5 rating if that were possible.....

All the staff are very friendly, helpful and efficient. The rooms are clean,cosy and comfortable. We were first given a room facing the square and a big busy street. Imagining it could be quite nosy at night I asked whether there were any rooms facing the courtyard. The next day we were given such a room , with even a much bigger and more comfortable bathroom, where we spent the remaining 3 nights. Having slept in the first room for 1 night, I should say to be fair it wasn`t very noisy either. The breakfast was very good with a choice of food and drinks. The cappuccino was delicious. We always got very helpful pieces of information from the staff regarding places to eat and visit with very detailed desciptions how to get there.The location is very convenient as it is near an undeground station and also from a very beautiful park Valentino. We also walked from the hotel to the city centre ,which took about 40 min - 1 hour depending on the destination. On the whole, my impressions of the hotel are more then just positive. The staff are very professional, hospitable and hard-working. They made us feel really welcomed. Thanks a lot for that. I highly recommend the hotel Smeraldo to everyone.

This is a lovely hotel. The location is great. There is a metro station right outside but we walked into the city centre (direct route, doesn't take too long and of course you can view the sights on the way). The staff are really nice, extremely helpful. The continental breakfast is just perfect with filter coffee on tap but a variety of 'proper' Italian coffees on request. There's meat, cheese, cereals, croissants, fruit... Our room had clearly been recently refurbished and was extremely comfortable, with a lovely bathroom, a very hot shower, mini bar (without usual extortionate prices) and we had a balcony with a great view over busy Torinese square. Oh, and lovely proper lighting (lamps etc.) and heating you can adjust. Honestly, I can't rave enough about this place. I have family in Turin and this will be my hotel of choice from now on.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel 28th 29th September and have since wondered why its not a 3 star hotel ? The rooms are spotless the breakfast plentiful and delicious. It's just above the station and in no time you are at downtown Torino . Eataly is within walking distance so is the National Motor Museum. Everyone at this hotel was very helpful and welcoming we can not recommend this place enough . Thank you
