Brilliant! Staff couldn't be friendlier and all speak good English.
Breakfast buffet but no evening facilities however the hotel is right in the centre of Turin with cafes and restaurants all around and within a minute's walk.
"Good hotel for city break for holiday or business"
Good position, close to transport links, excellent break. Buy a transport ticket for cheap travel on buses, trams and metro.
Our room overlooked the hills, very quiet at night even though in a busy area. Breakfast was relaxed; it was always easy to find a table, and food was replenished quickly.
The surrounding area of Residence Sacchi gives one the impression of the hotel being located in a very "dead" part of town. However, once in our upgraded apartment, we were quite comfortable and quickly forgot about the surrounding area. There are some very nice restaurants within about 3 to 10 minutes walking distance from the hotel. There is also a mini super market very close by. The hotel was not all that helpful, when it came to going sightseeing. The staff, kept telling us to go and check things out on the internet. They did not even know where to go to get on the Hop-on, Hop-off bus!! Having said that, they were all very friendly and tried their best! The apartment we stayed in was very spacious, and had great cooking facilities. Great place to stay!!
The Concord is in a great location: just across from Porta Nuovo train station, close to good restaurants, supermarkets and two major Italian department stores, Coin and Rinascente. It is an older style hotel that hosts conferences and tour groups. Our room was spacious, beds comfortable, the bathroom was large and well equipped and we had a small fridge. Breakfast was plain but I enjoyed a range of fresh seasonal fruit (cherries, apricots, grapes and banana). It provided great value for money.
I don't have much to complain about. Maybe some breakfast items were not replaced while I was eating...It has a fitness room, which was very useful to me. I liked the taste of the breakfast coffee.
Please note that when the hotel staff book a taxi for you, it is not a regular city taxi, but more like a private ride service. The cost to the airport is 40 euros, the drive wears a suit, the vehicle is a Mercedes Benz, and you can get a receipt.
The hotel is refreshingly different than any other hotels that I have stayed in (and I travel frequently).
The word "art" in the name is indicative of what you will find here. There is art throughout, and the rooms (at least the room I had) art featured prominently. And the room was very spacious.
The hotel staff were over-the-top friendly and made the stay that much better.
Booked this Hotel with a flight via expedia. Arrived on the 19th May on the 6-55 flight from Stanstead, and by the time we had cleared the airport and made the Bus journey to Porto Nuveou we arrived at 11-30. we found the Hotel, which is on busy main street, and were hoping that they would allow us to store our luggage until the official check in time of 2pm. We were met with a friendly greeting in English and immediately given our room key, a very pleasant surprise.
The room was on the 5th Floor, and had the twin beds we requested, and the following facilities.
Tea/Coffee making facility's
TV (Only one English speaking channel, and that was BBC World news)
Electronic safe in the wardrobep(provided for free)
Marvelous Shower with overhead and front spray,Bidet, etc.
Very good continental breakfast
The Hotel is idealy located for a brisk walk into the main part of Turin, with The Royal Palace, Turin Shroud, Cinema Museum, and Egyptian Museum being no more than a 40 minute walk away.
The Hotel is very clean and well maintained, and the staff are all very helpful.
Would we go back there, you bet.
The whole package including flights via expedia, and five nights came to only £530, so an excellent price as well.
The initial contact with the front desk was a bit gruff,but it improved markedly with other staff. I was concerned as some reviews showed the hotel to be "dated", but did not find that to be the case. Normally a hotel near the train station in Europe can mean a less than desirable neighborhood, but that is not the case here. Lots of transit options.. busses, trams and even the limited metro are within a very short walk of the front door.
Hotel is just fine, and the location is just the right thing for seeing Turin.
Traveller from Wash. DC
Roma & Rocca Cavour is one of the oldest hotels in Turin, located in the city centre, near the Porta Nuova railway station …More
very central and welcoming. staff were very helpful. Good breakfast and very comfortable place. Some good restaurants in the area and the hotel is within walking distance of the Porta Nuova station.
Would certainly return to this hotel.
Turin's main train station is the Porta Nuova Station, built in the 1860s. Designed by Alessandro Mazzucchetti it was modelled on King’s Cross in London and consisted of an arrivals hall and a departures hall separated by a hall with a semicircular roof. The early 20th century saw many changes to the station and the interior has since been completely restructured, although the façade remains.
