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.

... climbed them once!) so that we could get our bearings in the city. Similar to Verona, there is a river running around the town, wide boulevards and some stunning dress shops. I am seriously regretting not bringing the spare suitcase!

The train to Chambery was a French TGV and it went through ...

Visiting the Piedmont region was a first for us. Fall was definitely in the air, and very few grapes were still hanging on the ubiquitous vines. The vines were beautiful colors of green, yellow, orange and red, depending on their location and the type of grape produced.

Hello. Up at 7.30am. Breakfast. Last look at the wonderful long pedestrian street right next to my hotel. I bought quite a bit along there. Little things.... That fit in my case. The girls in Reception are lovely. Now, Amanda and Meagan.... Don't read the next bit. OK? I bought another case. Yep. Turns out that I am not one of those people who can travel with a back pack. Now, I might have been. But, the Italian Post System let me down. Badly. ...
