Novotel Torino Corso Giulio Cesare4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
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
Ok lets get real here this is a Novotel which is situated in not a particularly nice part of town. It does require some work and is a bit of a mess. Have to say on checking out Roberto could not of been more helpful about how to get out of Torino and I found all the staff friendly and helpful.
I always booked Novotel hotels without thinking because I knew I could expect a certain standard of hotel...not anymore. I'm struggling to find something nice to say about this hotel which is located in a horrible part of Turin. The hotel is in desperate need of renovation or downgrading to a lower standard (eg. Ibis). The bed was not a kingsize as advertised (much smaller) and the bedding was of poor quality (think Etap/Ibis hotel standard) and although I cannot say the hotel felt dirty, there was n odor throughout the hotel which reminded you it had been lived in for a long time. The room was like a hammam when we arrived late at night and the air conditionning worked (it made a noise even if the temperature didn't seem to change) for about half an hour before breaking down completely. Venturing into the underground car park is risky because nobody answers the intercom when you try to get back out - I had to walk up the ramp to escape on foot, and I had to furiously honk my car horn for someone to open the gate when we were leaving. I would not say the staff were rude, but they were certainly not friendly. Breakfast was poor although you can get a decent coffee if you ask for it to be made in the kitchen (don't use the machine). Finally, you have to swipe your room key in the elevator in order to leave the hotel - this could be dangerous in an emergency, especially as the card reader does not work well. It took us several minutes to get the elevator moving in the right direction at one stage. The only positive I can think of was the view from the breakfast room onto the garden - the windows were open and it was a beautiful day so it's a pleasant place to enjoy a coffee (from the kitchen).
Old, broken, ugly. Has nothing to do with the Novotel Standard. Horrible Breakfast. Pool is not usable. Garden is horrible. Rooms are old and need renovation. People are ok but seemed unhappy. Too expensive. Stay away!
