Recent guest reviews

Stayed here for a few nights a while back it has a 24 hour desk the room was quiet and clean and it is near the train station staff were pleasant and helpful safety deposit boxes next to reception and it is close to Via Roma

We checked into this hotel, expecting not much other than convenience to Porta Nuova station, which is right across the road. The building is one of those fine colonnaded ones of which there are many in Turin. The foyer and checkin were pleasant but unexceptional. Then we opened the door to our room, expecting three star basic for our internet special price. When you are a road warrior, staying in hotels constantly, it takes a lot to impress. WOW! We had stepped into another world, high ceilings, acres of space, vast ceiling to floor curtains on the windows and the bed, two comfortable armchairs, and two more upholstered chairs for the room service table. A spacious bathroom that reeked of luxury. No view (we'd requested a quiet room, and got one that opened onto the internal courtyard), but our own little terrace outside. We've stayed in 'five star' hotel rooms that weren't as pleasant as this. The free wifi was fine, and breakfast was a generous continental breakfast with a couple of hot dishes thrown in. The location was also perfect for wandering Turin's charming centre, with Piazza San Carlo less than 10 minute walk away. We didn't try the bar here, but there was a cappuccino machine. There are dozens of restaurants nearby. For good Piedmontese food we'd suggest Il Bistrot della Bottega del Gusto, a couple of blocks away. And for fine accommodation, we thoroughly endorse the Hotel Genio of course.

Our room was large and clean and precisely as described. The breakfast was delightful. There was a large spread of hot and cold items, very tasty eggs, fresh fruit, a nice assortment of yogurt. We were pleased about our stay. Fantastically close to the Porta Nuova station and Turin attractions like the Museo Egizio.

We stayed two nights in this hotel. We had booked a superior room and were pleased with the spaciousness and comfort. The furnishings were in good taste and everything was spotlessly clean. The shower was one of the best we have experienced in Italy. The room had its own large terrace. The staff were efficient and polite.

It is just opposite the train station but beware on the other side of the train station there is another hotel of similar name, Best Western Genova. Check in was fast. The lift was small and slow but at least there is one. The room was well equipped and clean. Bed was comfortable. TV has English channels. Breakfast was good. Wifi was good. The heater was too hot even though I adjusted to a temperature I liked. Otherwise nothing else.

Checked in here for 2 nights . Staff so hospitable and friendly . Excellent location and service all around. Savour the buffet breakfast . It was delicious .Loved the old style and ambiance of this hotel.

This hotel is conveniently located in the city center, close to the station. That's usually in big cities not such a recommendation, but in this case, it is great. The area is nice with lots of bars and restaurants. The staff of the hotel was very friendly, room was nice. The breakfast buffet was good, with lots of choice. The hotel has bicycles for rent, which is a perfect way to discover the city.

My friend and I stayed in the hotel for three nights in two single rooms.The hotel is very well located next to Puerto Neuva station. The staff were friendly and helpful and our rooms although a bit dated decorwise represented great value. Comfortable beds and a good showe. Breakfast was varied and plentiful.

First, pay for the superior room. It's more, but it's more space, more quiet, and a better experience. Checking was flawless and the staff had been accommodating for the entire time. The room is nice and we even have a 40 square foot private patio. The breakfast buffet ($4 per person) is well worth it. Real scrambled eggs and more. The hotel is less than .75 mikes from almost any museum, palazzo, or theatre. You are right across the street from the train station, but it's quiet. I've stayed in accommodations around the world and the Hotel Genio Torino is at the top of my list.

This hotel is at the very heart of Turin. It is at a walking distance from the Main Station of Porta Nuova, metro and all the museums and restaurants. The hotel is going through some renovation and that should be a good sign meaning that the rooms will be modernized in the near future so do not be put off.The reception staff will surely be helpful in giving you a good room. In fact we were given a great room with a good view on the main street. We had also a small kettle with tea and coffee for free in the room, Sky T.V. and the WiFi was working great and to top it all a great breakfast with a good variety of food. There are also two computers and printer close to the lobby for those who need to print. I wish to say thanks to Salvatore, Mary and all the other staff at the reception desk and the guy at the bar for their service, kindness and patience. Will definitely suggest this hotel both for a short or long stay. Thanks guys and keep up the good work.
