Hotel Montevecchio2.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We stayed in Turin for one night before getting a flight. The receptionist at the desk was extremely helpful when we checked in, offering us a choice of two rooms and even showing them to us. We chose the room at the back, which looked out onto the courtyard and was nice and quiet so we got a good rest before our flight. The receptionist was also able to give us advice about the airport bus and restaurants. The location by the train station is very convenient, but the hotel is in a side-street, and as mentioned, the rooms at the back are nice and quiet. The room also had a fan which was welcome in the heat! Recommended as a very good value place to stay.
Overall staying here added to the feel of being in Italy because there was only one staff member who could speak English, so that was fun to practice our limited Italian. The room was modestly decorated, with wall paper coming off in places BUT clean, clean so that is most important for me. The window does not open so I would not want to stay in the room in summer, but for winter it was OK for one night. It was very affordable for Europe but beware - the WiFi is not included, the parking is not included so has to be paid extra. The breakfast was continental with fruit, cheese, yoghurt etc. so what is expected in Europe too. Very friendly stay and they referred us to a great restaurant and gave good directions every day.
I have stated in this hotel for 3 night and the room was not very clean. Windows full of dust and bed uncomfortable. At least the belreakfast had a reasonable quality and the service at the desk was friendly. The prices are very high for the quality and they also bill for the WiFi.
Good points because it is close to the train station, in 5 minute you’re there. It’s not very close to the city center (20-25 minutes walking). Good points because it is very nice decorated on the halls. We also had in our rooms some quite interesting paintings. The rooms were clean, the bathrooms the same. The staff was quite friendly, despite the fact that only one of them speaks English. Bad points because we stayed at the ground floor. It wasn’t noisy, but the window can’t be opened, only a small part of the window can be a little opened. The rooms didn’t had air conditioners but we had ventilators. It wasn’t enough. Practically, you can’t refresh the air. We slept one night with the door wide opened, hoping that the air will circulate a little. I hope you will be lucky not to stay at the ground floor. Another bad point is the breakfast. The quality of the breakfast is so so, because for example they don’t serve any kind of meat. And the portions at the crostata were super slim. But that's not why I consider this to be a bad point. It's because the hotel staff practically watched us very close every morning. It’s never happened to me in any other hotel we stayed until now. It was unpleasant, uncomfortable, unprofessional.
I stayed here for work after being recommended by some locals. It is a nice 'cute'/old school hotel run by a very friendly staff who seem to be mostly family. It is in a good location, a 10 minute walk from the main train station. The rooms were ok but I was too big for most of the furniture! Would be a nice place for a couple's trip but maybe not ideal for a business trip. Also wifi was not free. There was a bit of a language barrier with the staff as they didn't have strong English, but actually this was sort of fun and they had a great attitude.
The montevecchio is near the train station. - a short walk from most of the historic parts of the city. It is very cute, very boutique hotel "ish" - it is actually budget priced, for northern Italy. They serve a MONSTER breakfast and the staff is super helpful. My room overlooked the most picturesque backs of apartments - right out of an old Sophia Loren movie: vintage , little porches with flowerpots, and cats, and laundry. The old doors open up and let that quaint view in - even though the room is totally modern. I still dream of those towells they have - the cotton Italian ones that smell starchy, like someone's grandma hand ironed them. The room has its own bath/shower/TV and was so comfortable , and warm. I felt like the total princess the 3 days i was there.
Friendly staff and cosy rooms. The breakfast is not So good but you get what you have paid for. The location is perfect and the whole hotel is very clean. For a budget option in Turin, hotel Montevecchio is a great choice.
They were very friendly to my 15-year-old daughter who was staying there on her own (I was elsewhere in the city) and apart from the coffee, which comes from a machine, the breakfast was good. The location is very convenient - trams stop nearby and the metro is a short walk away - and it is good value.
Booking in advance they cancelled our booking and then we booked again of course in higher price !! Two nights a room for 3 persons 300 euro with no tax included with a breakfast that its not a breakfast and a room which is not a room. First they charged our credit card the whole amount of money and then a room with a cheap fun no balcony no view no lighting at all and a small bath with nothing inside even a small shampoo. And the top they called us from the reception at 1 in the night to tell us to close the bathroom light because the room beside us could sleep!!! Really i pay 150 euro a night and you told me what to do in my room? Where is the isolation where is the privacy? An english lesson to the reception would be very helpful!! Except the location nothing will stay in my memory except my money i lost with this money i could stay in Sheraton!!
Price was right. Room was dark but clean and ok enough. Location is a 10-minute walk from the tourist district, but very convenient to the train station. Great little restaurant across the street (simply fantastic - its the one the front desk will recommend to you). It was good but not great. By the way, Turin is a hidden jewel of a city. Skip the Shroud Museum and instead go to St. John the Baptist Cathedral and see the actual Shroud (well, see the box its in anyways).
