You can’t get much better than this; located right in the city centre, just opposite Turin’s main railway station Porta Nuova, Turin Palace Hotel is in the prime location for exploring the city. It’s also right near Via Roma, the main shopping street, and minutes away from all the best sights and attractions.
The original building dates back to 1872, but Turin Palace Hotel was completely renovated between 2013 and 2015 and now boasts a lovely blend of sleek modern interiors and elegant original features. Case in point: the lounge area is flanked by elegant floor-to-ceiling windows that were no doubt carried over from a previous era, but the glass-blown lights that hang from the ceiling and the modern art adorning the walls add a contemporary touch to the room. Look out for a calming colour palette of deep velvety greens and warm pastels.
The buffet breakfast, which is served in the Sala Mollino ballroom, is second to none. And the hotel restaurant, Les Petites Madeleines, is one of its main draws. Classic Piedmontese dishes like veal fillet and ravioli are revamped with a creative touch. When the weather’s warm, you can enjoy a meal on the rooftop terrace, which boasts views of the city and beyond.
Art Deco-esque features like black and white checkered bathroom floors and retro furnishing give each of the 123 rooms a classy feel. They all come fitted with a television, a phone, DSL internet connection, air conditioning and a spacious bathroom.
