Novotel Torino Corso Giulio Cesare4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Well run, clean, very helpful staff. would recommend. 20 minutes by tram from city centre, but at the center of the industrial area for work. Good parking security underground gated car park. Breakfast was leisurely as ample seating and staff to clear tables
Room is quite dirty including papers and food behind the furniture. Bathroom is old and seems to be really used. Moreover, The shower was not working properly. The breakfast is a real disaster. Most of the cups and plates are broken, no fresh juice, almost no pastries, the staff was removing the breakfast 30 min before the what’s foreseen according to their own timetable. The 2 only positive points are that the staff at the reception is really kind and that the bed is good quality
I opted for the online check-in which was emailed to me a few days before my stay, assuming this would help - whereas it didn't. Rather than speeding things up, as I had hoped (expected!), considering I was arriving at 1am and leaving again at 7am, it turned into a huge mess. I still had to go to the check-in desk upon arrival and, rather than being given my room key immediately, which is what I thought the online check-in was all about, it took the staff member at least 5 minutes to deal with the check-in, demanding my passport to take a photocopy and then asking how I wanted to pay the city tax, and telling me that it was easy to take off my registered credit card. I just wanted to sleep so accepted this. The room was large and the bed was comfortable, so no complaints there, but a day after, I received a debit on my credit card not just for the city tax, but an additional €35!! There was no explanation - I didn't touch the minibar (if there even was one?) and did not order any extras, so I am still trying to find out why they took this money without my authorisation (received one reply to email, but still no solution or explanation). The hotel is fine if you have a car, but the service needs improving given this experience.
The hotel is located at 15 minutes (Tram 4) from Torino City Centre. It is modern and staff at the reception (eg. Giulia) are helpful and great. Our room (313) was well equiped, clean with a good bed. The car park is free but you'd better use the Tram 4 to get to the city centre: you can buy single tickets for 1,50 € from the reception. The weak point of this Novotel is the restaurant despite being in Italy... - Breakfast is average (only exception is the excellent orange juice and godd croissants) - Lunch is no better than a self-service canteen with tasteless food offer - Dinner was disappointing (eg. rice with tasteless Parmizan, no more that 3 asparagus tips and 3 small squid rings..). The floor of the restaurant (carpets) and lounge (carpet part) has not been cleaned Thursday to Friday. This is a key point to improve: visitors of Torino expect a higher standard to keep up with Italian genuine food !!
very clean , nice breakfast , very polite stuff and always willing to help you but , at the other hand - very far from the center of the city - 5 minutes to tram stop and 20 more minutes to the center - the area is not so good for tourists to the management of hotel - you should do something with the air conditioner - it makes very loud sound - I saw in other reviews that you had this problem but you should fix it is very annoying
very far from the centre . nothing to do in the evening except a big supermarket nearby the facilities in this hotel are sufficiant and for one night is it enought i don't know the price , i persume that since this hotel is located far away from the centre of Torino the fare is ok
I was worried when I read the negative reviews. However everything was fine. A pleasant out-of-town hotel. Clean, comfortable and hospitable. The parking was easy and the pool looked fine. We were very satisfied and would happily use this hotel again as a staging-post. PS Aircon was fine if a little noisy
We booked As a regular Novotel customer in several countries for the first time a Novotol hotel in Torino. The expectations are clean room, Wifi, airco and a european breakfast. We had a clean room. But the airco didn't work like it should be. A lot a noise with minimal of cooling. After the first night we received by the personal (friendly) a other room. again the same problem with a the airco and Wifi not stable a bad coverage. Breakfast was basic , only apples as fruit, no fresh juice. When we checked out we heard another customer complaining about the Airco. This Novotel Hotel didn't not meet the Novotel expectation. Is this a Novotel Torino problem or is this a Novotel Italy problem is not clear for me.
Firstly, I want to give credit to the young man working the bar/restaurant. He is cheerful, polite and provided excellent service. I feel sorry for the staff here as it must be very difficult to try and remain positive when Accor has clearly not put any investment into the hotel in years. Location: Awful - it doesn't feel safe walking around at night (and even occasionally during the day). It is approx 30 mins by tram into the centre of Turin. There is nothing to see or do in the immediate area which means that you are also limited in terms of food and drink options. If you are travelling alone, you may feel trapped. Bed/Room: Bed was ok. Shower was dreadful. Really poor water pressure so it was difficult to rinse shampoo out of my hair. Food: The hotel restaurant (like every Novotel I have stayed in) has a very limited menu. Four of the five pasta options contain shellfish or fish - not great if you are allergic or maybe just want a simple tomato or garlic based pasta. The 'gelato' dessert options were the absolute worst though. The dolci menu calls them 'gelato' which they are NOT. The chocolate gelato was a lump of ganache and the nocciola gelato was a lump of Nutella. They weren't even cold, never mind frozen. Turin is famous for gelato - but you won't find it here....
Rooms were nice and clean the Ac made alot of noise almost sounded like it was raining didnt really bother me tough 3 pillows for each person good nice bathrooms also clean good food nice atmosphere staff were all nice good price
