Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Torino Rome
We stayed in the Torino for 4 nights - there were 14 of us staying there as my son was getting married on 10th July 2004 in Basilica San Silvestro. The staff were most helpful, the rooms were lovely with everything you would need. The location is excellent just a short walk from the Termini station - do not take a taxi - our friends were charged 25 euro for a 4 minute walk! . I would definitely recommend it and would stay there again on my next visit
Fine hotel for seeing the city
I stayed in this hotel for 5 nights in April 2004. The hotel delivered all that it claimed on Expedia and I did not find any negatives worth mentioning. It was only a short walk to the Termnii in an area which has many hotels. It was a good base from which to explore the city. The building is well presented and the room was smallish but clean. The room was made up each morning including Sunday. Breakfast as advertised was on the top floor with an outside area where you can eat. The food was fresh although selection was limited. Overall reasonable value for the price.
We found the location to be great. It was right in reach of everywhere we wanted to go and all the taxi drivers knew where it was, which is great when you've had a few beers at 4 in the morning!
My only grumble was the staff. I found them to be miserable and unapproachable!! I stayed there on a stag weekend with 12 other friends, some might say that's a nightmare but we were in no way rowdy, we saved that for the bars! The italian guy allocated us the wrong rooms on arrival, which we were not bothered about because we all had rooms. However, he was insistant that we had ripped him off and quized us about our names and room numbers every time we got into the hotel reception!! even at 5.30 am one morning when all we really wanted to do is go to sleep!
This really wasted a lot of our time and put 13 beer hungry guys in a very bad mood!
So in conclusion: hotel nice, food nice, location nice, staff a disgrace!
I need Hotel Torino's email address
Help! I need Hotel Torino's (Rome) email address. please email me with it. Thank you very much.
LOCATION: The hotel is located within steps of the Rome Termini train and Metro station. The location is great if you plan to hop on a rail and visit other parts of Italy unless of course you're traveling light and don't mind hauling your luggage around town. The Roman Forum and Piazza Navona areas are both within 20 minutes walking distance.
Alternatively, a hop on the Metro will take you to the Spanish Steps in 3 stops and directly to the Vatican in 7 stops. The area itself isn't much to brag about. The hotel is located within a several block neighborhood packed with other similar hotels. As such, food in the area is over-priced catering to the transient tourist crowd, and the area tends to become eerily desolate at night.
AMMENITIES: Don't expect the Ritz Carlton when you walk in the door.
There is a certain charm though which you can expect with similarly priced hotels in this area. The room is definately small and the bathroom is even smaller. The room barely fits 2 double beds placed together with room to walk around on both sides. The room also contains a cabinet for storing clothes and a tiny television which broadcasts local Italian channels. The bathroom has just enough room for a sink, toilet, bidet and shower. Full figured individuals will have trouble navigating the bathroom, and may find it impossible to even take a shower. The bathroom does come stocked with essential toiletries like soap, shampoo and a hair dryer. Despite what other reviewers have said about the free breakfast, I found the selection to be pleasant. If you're looking for a full course breakfast with eggs and bacon, you're probably in the wrong country. The buffet included: 2 types of cereal, fruit, yogurt, an array of pastries, 4 types of ham, swiss cheese, hard-boiled eggs, 2 types of juice, milk, coffee and tea. The dining area is located on the top floor with both an inside seating area and an outdoor terrace.
SERVICE: The service was adequate considering Italians are notoriously arrogant and aloof. Your reception will obviously be negative if you approach the staff as tourist without making any attempt to even speak the language. I found that making a tiny effort to bridge the cultural barrier resulted in a positive experience. The men at the front desk spent a good amount of time helping me decipher my map in order to navigate the maze of streets around the city. They also made transportation recommendations for various sites on my itinerary, and suggestions for late night dining venues. A wake-up call was also timely provided.
CONCLUSION: For the price you will pay for this hotel, Hotel Torino is a safe choice. The location is great for passing tourists. The ammenities are adequate especially if you plan on spending most of your time sightseeing (and only need a place to sleep and wash up). If you plan on spending most of your time in a hotel, you might be better off spending the extra $100 for a full service 4+ star location.
Conveniently located near the Termini train station, if you are travelling by train. You would never guess this is a 4 star hotel by its interior and service. Unpleasant staff at the reception, rude even.
Rooms small, furniture depleted, bathroom ancient, shower miniature.
Clean. Very nice roof deck for breakfast, although the breakfast leaves a lot to be desired.
The hotel was in a great location if you are using the trains to travel around. It was HOT in Rome in July, and the AC worked really well - I'll remember the hotel for that if nothing else! The rooms were small and the showers were microscopic, but we had a nice balcony with a lime tree on it so...we were happy. I wouldn't spend a long time here, but a few nights' stay is OK. The rooftop deck is wonderful for breakfast, though the breakfast is nothing special.
This hotel was in a good location, close to the main train station, Roma Termini. However, I was disappointed by the service at this apparently 4* hotel. The reception desk was maned by an extremely miserable Italian man, who didn't smile once or even welcome us to the hotel. Breakfast on the roof terrance was reasonable, but no better than the breakfast we had staying at a 3* hotel in Rome. Luckily we paid a discounted rate otherwise I would have been very disappointed!

... into a church). It is one of the only structures from Romes's Imperial Age to remain intact and it is hard to believe that they were able to engineer buildings this large and complex without the benefit of calculators or computers.
Our usual trip to the gelato store rounded out another fantastic day and we look forward to our last full day tomorrow when we try and tackle the Vatican museum and St. Peter's.
... chapel. Because we can't take photos in there I've had to borrow some from Google. After one interesting and enjoyable tour we walked back towards the main part of town for some lunch. The waiter at the pizzeria we stopped at said he has the best pizzas in the world. So we shared a 4 cheese pizza, then I had lasagne, Adam had a calzone and Alex had gnocchi. The pizza was nice, but best ever? I don't think so. And the pasta meals were ordinary. We ...
An avid traveler learns early on in their experiences that something almost always goes wrong when traveling. You learn to take it in stride and not let it effect the overall goal of a vacation. So when it just so happens that our first leg of the trip brought more bad than good news, we did our best to carry on. We did all arrive in Rome safely and on time so for that, we are thankful. We left Orlando Saturday afternoon 2 hours later than ...
