Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Victoria Turin
Beware the Pool, unfriendly Turin Hotel
Stayed here recently with husband and 5 year old. Room was large and clean, breakfast was more than adequate. Free internet was a plus. My negative feelings towards the hotel stem from them not telling us of a parking fee (18Euros/night about 5 blocks from the hotel) even after I asked and from the pool issue. All over the hotel and in emails to me they tell you to use the pool. When we brought our daughter to the pool (which was very beautiful) I am then told there is a 20Euro per adult cost. No where is anything they sent me or I read in the room was this mentioned. I was forced to use the pool at that point as to not disappoint my daughter for a cost of 40 euro. I complained at check out along with another unsuspecting couple and eventually the manager dropped the charge. The front desk staff was very unfriendly and not helpful at all. They made me feel like a criminal because I complained.
It left a bad feeling in me about Turin. So if you want just a hotel with no hospitality this is your place.
What a charming place to stay
Nice rooms, lovely decorated. Big bathroom, recently renovated. Very clean. Excellent breakfast in a romantic patio. Everything in walking distance. Very good value for the price.
Great Hotel good value and a very helpful Staff
A very good balance between price and value. A very good room on the main floor to relax and chat with friends. The staff speaks english and I found them to be extremely helpful in book events and assistance outside the hotel. We stayed for ten days.
Nice Place to stay
I stayed for one night at Hotel Victoria during November 2005.
The hotel is quite big and has a bit tired european style but it has a very good location and a good service.
I stayd in the Junior Suite with an Jacuzzi two places Bathtab with was quite complicated to use (instuction was not enough probably) after read it few times I choose the big shower.
The Room was very big and well decorated with bright color and a romantic bed with courtains all over around, pillows very thin and hard.
I would say about this hotel that it has a good relation between price and standard.
I recommand this well located place.
Very Nice, Very European
Stayed 3 nights and really enjoyed my stay. The hotel is right downtown, close to shopping (Roma), landmarks (palace, churches), restaurants, train station, and the river. European charm with an outstanding complimentary breakfast. Note the European part - very small room, noise carries, and limited room ammenities (very small tv, no in-room coffee, no clock). Staff was helpful, friendly, and spoke excellent English. Don't go to Turin and stay in a chain - you will like the Hotel Victoria.
A charming hotel in Turin
We stayed in the Victoria Hotel for 4 nights in June, 2005. The staff was friendly and helpful, yet I would caution against taking their dining recommendations -- we were quite disappointed with the Badessa Restaurant they reommended to us for dinner. The food was mediocre and overpriced, and the service was terrible.
The breakfast at the hotel was ample, yet not of consistent quality. On two of the mornings, the fruit was fresh and appetizing, on the two other mornings, there were moldy oranges in the mix, which effectively dulled my appetite. The breakfast room is quite difficult to navigate when it is crowded, making it somewhat uncomfortable.
The housekeeping staff is outstanding -- pleasant and efficient with every request. The rooms were impeccably clean. And the reception staff was also quite helpful -- they even printed a document that we needed.
It is also quite nice that there is free wireless Internet access from almost every room. And if you cannot access the Internet from your room there is an Internet hotspot in a small room on the Lobby level.
All in all a charming hotel in a rather worn at the edges city.
Still the best place in Turin
I love the Victoria hotel. It is small, quirky and although it hasn't got many stars, it looks like it deserves more. Each room is individually furnished and there is one with leopard prink furnishings, very gauche! The breakfasts are among the best I've ever had in an Italian hotel (baked apple with pine nuts and raisins among other interesting curious). It's being done up a bit when I was there last week April 05 (I think they are putting more rooms on)...let's hope its back street charm stays put...
A wonderful hotel and great for English speakers!
We just returned from a July 2004 trip. staying at Hotel Victoria. It is a lovely small hotel, and the very helpful staff was able to speak to us in English, point out special events in the city and assist us with our questions. The morning breakfast in the hotel's garden room is extensive and tasty, and the room was comfortable and cozy. There's also TV with English-language CNBC and CNN, a computer to check e-mail and wireless capability. There's more --it's within easy walking distance to Pizza San Carlo, Piazza Castello and The Atrium, the Olympic preview center.
My husband and I stayed at this hotel 2 years ago - we had a wonderful time - the hotel was excellent!
Four Seasons Standard
This Hotel is excellent ! It is equal to any Four Seasons Hotel, we have stayed at.

... we found this amazing local Pizza place, it one that the locals use, so there was no English going on at all. But we got 2 medium Pizza's for euros 7, can't moan about that, and we couldn't even eat it all.
The following morning we had arranged to see the The Shroud of Turin, due to circumstances this did not happen, but we went off to our next destination, Capena Rome.
... a type of profiterole with their fruit salad I had semifreddo (yum). A long lunch in a courtyard in Piedmont is not a bad way to spend an afternoon. We weaved our way back to catch the bus back to Asti. Pity the passengers who had to share the bus with our rowdy mob. There are cars with horns blaring and shouting in the street - Juventus drew with Madrid so they are in the Champions League final. Happy Italian football fans ...
... for the stops we had planned for today. Our first little village, Avigliana, is perched beside two glacier fed lakes and surrounded by the Alps. Too bad we couldn't see either. We drove to the Abbey, Sacra di San Michele, at the top of a really high mountain. This monastic community was founded around the year 1,000. During this abbey's prime it attracted pilgrims on their way to Rome and as a ...
... the Royal grounds which included the Church of San Lorenzo. This church was very intriguing because on the spring and fall equinox at cerain times, when the sun shines through each dome window, a painting in a little hole is revealed. Then we walked around the city and saw the Palatine Towers and the Basilica of Our Lady Help ...
... these things are fun to study but still ridiculous. The chalets are adorned with all kinds of rubies, garnets, diamonds, emeralds and any other kind of jewel you can think of. They were truly beautiful until you think about how many people around the world are starving and homeless and how much better money could be spent. I only hope the church hasn't continued the same practices.
We then stopped to split a ...
