Unfortunately only an overnight stay as we were travelling from Paris to Venice by Train. Hotel nicely situated within walking distance of the station. If we return to Turin then we would book this hotel.
Although we arrived about 8:30 at night, the restaurant was still open until 10:00 pm. Staff were most helpful, excellent and their inter-action with guests are a credit to themselves and the hotel management.
Hotel reception had identified from our passports that it was was my wife's birthday the next day - the restaurant brought out a complimentary dessert (complete with candle) and chocolates - a very nice 'touch' and most appreciated.
It is the little touches that separate a 'good' hotel from 'mediocre' - from our short stay the Ambasciatori Hotel can only be qualified as 'excellent'
We arrived early and room was available which was a bonus, the staff were very friendly and helpful and parked our car for us. We ate in the restaurant the first night and was a very pleasant experience. The roof terrace gave some great views of the city and was very nice at night. the staff gave us a map of the city and advised places to see which were all very good.
I used the spa room and that was also very nice.
My Birthday fell during our stay and the management left fruit and chocolates in the room which was a nice touch. I would recommend the hotel.

Within an 1872 palace, and after 3 years of renovation has re-opened completely renovated the Turin Palace hotel. All rooms …More
The staff is friendly and out of the way helpful. The rooms are clean, but the 5 th floor rooms get hot on warm days, and AC was still off in April.
Overall, I recommend the hotel for location and professional service.
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.
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!!
"Nice hotel with convenient location but noisey. "
Very convenient to metro/ train station. Rooms are smallish but they actually have king-sized beds. Front desk staff were a bit abrupt and even confronted my daughter when she walked into the lobby demanding to see her key ( there is only one key per room and we were a party of three). They said they do that of every guest but no one else in our group was ever asked. Also cable car and train traffic noise until about midnight.
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.
