Best Western Hotel Genio3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Three adults stayed in one room. I searched for a room in Turin without a pull out bed and was surprised to see a pull out in our assignment. It turned out ok because it was a very sturdy pull out with out the middle bar and premade with quality sheets, etc. I was glad we stayed here the room was extra large. The wood floors were extra clean, the water pressure was great with big soft towels and a modern shower. The front desk was very friendly and able to speak English. The Breakfast was a nice presentation of salami, cheeses, yogurts, fruits and croissant choices in a comfortable area that was well staffed.The walk to the Ti and central square was only 15 min. but even more ideal, the "Hop-on, Hop-off" bus had a stop (#7) just across the street. Two negatives: the street is loud at night so we needed to keep the windows shut (room 431) and the parking was a little inconvenient, down the street in a public garage.
Hotel seems to be nice for one or two days stay. No parking at hotel... oldfashioned rooms. They will not amaze you. Service nice and helpfull. Breakefast poor, but coffe nice. Hotel is located really close to city center.
Great staff, amazing rooms great amenities. Felt really spoiled. Would recommend!!!! I would definitely come back! Great location and super comfy bed! Great breakfast. It's a wonderful place to stay solo and together
This hotel suited our needs excellently for a 4 night stay. Right by the station with plenty to see and do. A 10 minute walk to the centre. Staff were excellent, especially Clinton who was particularly friendly and heloful
We were back and very pleased again. The hotel is very conviniently located . Rooms large, modern and clean. Breakfast generous. Staff is nice and helpful. The Genio hotel is very near the newly renovated train station and the city center which means you don't need a car if you come by train. .
From outside it looks not too good, but once you are inside you will change your mind! Well decorated this hotel is historic and date from 800 with a very friendly and smiling staff you will find large rooms with large bathrooms, a TV (most programs are with SKY!), a small bar and a kettle for coffee or tea. A lot of rooms are looking at the interior garden so no noise of the busy "Corso Victorio Emanuele II".
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.
