Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Torino Venice
Worst hotel I have ever stayed in.
We stayed in this hotel in May2004.
I have been in the travel industry for over 15 years and my partner and I travel extensively and we both have a good knowledge of hotels of all standards.
We were both very disappointed with the Torino. The first room we were given was small, dirty, the "double bed" consisted of 2 singles pushed together and the air conditioning was broken. We brought this to the attention of the reception staff and were moved to another room with A/C and a proper double bed.
This room was a slight improvement on the first. However, the bathroom was tiny, one had to be a contortionist to get to the toilet because of its position wedged in a corner between the basin and bidet. The shower curtain was positioned so close to the wall of the shower it was impossible to wash without having the curtain stuck to ones body. The carpet in the room was old and filthy, furniture broken and shabby. Overall, the room generally needed re-decorating.
Breakfast was a joke. The staff seemed surprised to see their guests arriving each morning for breakfast. It didn't seem to matter what time we went down for breakfast, staff and guests were rummaging to try to locate cutlery, cereal, pastries etc. One morning breakfast consisted of coffee and biscuits. I know the hotel only supplied a continental breakfast but even that proved difficult as they consistently ran out of pastries etc. by 9am. Breakfast was supposed to run until 10.
We were woken between 7 and 7.30 each morning by housekeeping staff holding full scale conversations on the landing outside our room. It seemed that staff were oblivious to the fact that guests were sleeping in the hotel.
I feel this hotel does not warrant a 3 star rating and cannot understand why it holds 3stars. The only thing going for this hotel is its location, but there are far superior 3star hotels in the same area at a similar price.
Venice is a wonderful city and this was our 3rd visit I stayed in a small one star hotel by the station about 5 years ago and that was better than the Torino.
Don't take a room on the first floor!
Torino is very conveniently located (very near to Piazza San Marco) and the concierge couldn't have been more pleasant giving us marvelous dining tips. The problem was the smell of the canal in my room. It was unbearable and when I asked for help I was given a bottle of air freshner. Needless to say the canal smell remained as attempting to cover it with another obnoxious odor was not the solution! In addition, the rooms were a bit pricey Euro130/night at the time of our stay.
Nice Time at Hotel Torino Venice
Nice Hotel, Clean & comfortable very handy for St Marks Square & the Rialto Bridge. We were accomodated in an annex a short distance from the main Hotel. Breakfast is a bit Spartan & no lift in the annex but would recommend this Hotel as good value for the location.
We recently stayed at the Hotel Torino for 2 nights between Christmas & New Year. We stayed in the annexe which has recently been refurbished & was wonderfully decorated & included a four poster bed. Very spacious compared to rooms in the main hotel. The room offered excellent value for money although we found the breakfast to be poor & the breakfast room itself small & cramped. The location of the hotel is excellent within a 5 minute walk of St.Marks Square & other attractions. I would definitely recommend this hotel.
I had a wonderful time at the Hotel Torino. My room was definitely small, but had everything I needed. It faced an interior courtyard and was very quiet. The hotel is between two very convenient vaporeto stops, and easy walking distance to St. Mark's and other tourist destinations. I found the breakfast included with the room to be very good, and loved the atmosphere of the breakfast room. The staff was friendly and very accomodating. I found the hotel to be good value for money, and would stay there again.

... hotel and one of the waitstaff was a student girl who decided or came to us and thought we were from Australia and wanted to ask us questions but then we told her we were from the states and we had a great discussion with her and she was very interesting she was at economist studying business at the school and was trying to figure out where to go in life Elizabeth and I spent some great time at the end of our ...
... over a canal. It was kind of how I was imagining Venice to be. It had some really old water wheels there as well that were still being used. After a look around the rather small town we headed back to the apartment so we could have a nap before the opera. The Opera we were seeing was called Carmen and was starting at 9:30pm. It didn't end up finishing until 1am! It was really cool though it was inside the old Colosseum and you sat on the steps/old seats as they would have ...
... railway station. One last trip on the people mover and we were safely back on board with a comfortable amount of time to spare.
Having not eaten for a couple of hour and feeling the sugar hit from the jam pastry we had at breakfast diminishing, we decided it was for time for lunch at the buffet… a couple of sandwiches later we were in the right frame of mind to watch the ship leave Venice. After a short delay, the ship ...
... stars coming out for the night, we hired a gondolier to take us for a ride through the small canals of Venice. As we floated along through small quiet canals, inches away from buildings, the gondolier having to duck to cross beneath several of the low bridges, it felt like a scene out of a movie. We kept having to tell ourselves that it was real. Back at St. Mark's square afterwards, we enjoyed a glass of prosecco while listening to one of the orchestras to end our first evening in ...
Brian & Teena got back just in time to clean up & head off for our last meal together. After dinner, we caught another comedy act in one of the smaller venues and then it was time to call it a night. I can't believe how fast this trip went, it has been a wonderful vacation and I've convinced Rich we need to start planning our next Princess cruise & have even paid down a deposit on it. :)
Until next time, Bon Voyage! ...
