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.

... say 'oh yeh, this room is nice, but just wait till you see the long hallway...'. The reaction is guaranteed. We visited Florence - somewhere I was eager to see because so many people had recommended it, but ultimately I knew very little about. It is a beautiful town, though quite a bit bigger than I expected. I suppose I was expecting more a Bari or Salerno sized city, but Florence was bigger and busier than either. My mood was a little low during my time in Florence - I'm ...
... into the ground past the sand and silt deep into the clay below. The type of wood and the lack of oxygen had petrified the piles below. The ground floors of the buildings are never lived in as they flood yearly with high tides that come in the autumn and winter. Some of the streets are built over canals and they have to have vent holes in them to allow water to come up during hide tides to prevent the streets from being destroyed. Our tour guide informed us that during ...
Hi, here we are in beautiful Venice sitting by our open windows looking out over a small square and a Gondola Station. Every now and again an Italian tenor will strut his stuff with a rendition of Santa Lucia. It is very busy down there and so loads to see with a glass of vino in hand we are enjoying the late afternoon. Today after sleeping 12 hours solid, exhausted with jetlag we went on a short tour ...
... Venetian bridge was just around the corner so we watched many Gondalas smoothly making their way along the Canals.
Walked up and over bridges along with many other tourists all doing the same thing passing lots of lovely little shops on the way. I found a gorgeous colourful vase which was very very heavy but just beautiful and the lady said she could post it for me. € 100 euro to post which is approx $150 and that didn't even include the vase! Thank you but....Ah ...
... has to be done by boat. There are absolutely no cars in the city except in the massive parking garage at the city entrance. All the streets are either pedestrian only roads or canals so all the main city work has to be done by boat. We watched everything from the garbage boat picking up from the streets, construction work being done by boat to the tourist gondolas and water taxis. It was so interesting and so nice to get away from the tourist trap and watch ...
