... the complete car. Any pedestrians have to go on the road. But they are quite happy to give way on crossings. The Swiss are a bit extreme. If you are walking anywhere near a crossing they will stop just in case you might want to cross while in Italy I think they just think they are there for decoration. Certainly I have seen some shocked faces when I gaily just walk out. On the small single track roads the French will ...
A nice short day. Warm sunshine. No pressure to get accommodation as I had decided to stay at the campsite listed in my book and shown on the map. Coped with lack of lunch as I had the hotel's "Full Italian Breakfast" ie a glass of fruit juice, a pan au chocolat and a coffee. Just arriving at Ivrea when an Italian version of Peter Selman accosted me. Not only did this unfortunate man have an uncanny resemblance to Peter ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Grand Hotel Sitea Turin
My husband and I stayed here on our drive from Paris to Florence for our honeymoon. We happened upon it by luck, just drove into Torino and found the first place that looked nice. The price was extremely reasonable (135 euros) the room was the largest we stayed in during our entire trip, and the bed was enormous and comfortable. The bathroom was modern with a wonderful bathtub and great water pressure that my husband loved. The hotel staff were heplful in making dinner suggestions and even called a few places to ensure they were open.
We had a great time here and would stay again!
It is true that any hotel recomended by Michelin guide is going to be good. Hotel Grand Sitea was no exception. Stayed in a large room on the top floor which has large flat screen TV, marble bathroom, bidet, slippers & robes, and a wonderful breakfast. All in a good part of Turin, and not behind the railroad station where most hotels are. Hotel staff is knowledgeable and helpful and refered us to two restorants, both of which do no cater to turists and were wonderful. Would definitely stay there again.
I spent three nights at the Sitea in early August 2006. On the whole I was satisfied.
My husband and I stayed in this hotel on our way back from a ski trip. Travelling with us was our one year old son. The staff in the hotel could not have been more helpful with him, they arranged a crib, high chair etc and gave us a larger room in order to accomodate him.
Our impression was of an excellent hotel and I would reinforce the views of previous reviewers in recomending it.
We stayed at the Grand Hotel Sitea for 3 nights in May 2005 at 155 Euro per night. To be honest, we weren't expecting much - but we were extremely impressed. The room was one of the largest we've experiencd in Europe (having been to over 20 European countries - all 4 star hotels). The staff were very friendly and importantly, the reception staff spoke fairly good english.
Grand by name and nature.
The only thing remotely bad about this hotel is the price. I would never have been able to afford to stay there had I not been sent there on business. Don't let the outside appearance of the hotel fool you: it truly is grand inside, with marble steps, fine furnishings, sound-proofed rooms.
Above all, friendly, multi-lingual staff and cleaners who always seem to be on duty. I had a wonderful time and I recommend this hotel highly.
