Nice hotel, ideal base for sight seeing
Posted Jan 29, 2017
We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights after travelling from England to watch Juventus. The transfer from airport to hotel was around 30 minutes and 30 euros in a taxi from just outside the airport. On arrival to the hotel, we were offered friendly customer service and very fortunate in being able to check in early, around 1100. The room was very clean, spacious, tidy and had all that we needed (hairdryer, towels, a fridge minibar etc). It was also lovely and warm, perfect temperature after walking around chilly Turin all day! The location was ok, slightly undesirable area, however the walk to the stadium was around an hour, and the beautiful city around 30 minutes. Also several supermarkets close by. We had read previous reviews about feeling unsafe when walking around the hotel location, however as a couple we did not feel unsafe but alone this may have felt different. All of the locals were very friendly and all willing to try and speak English to help you. On the first night we ate dinner in the hotel, which was delicious but a little pricey when compared to the following nights. We visited Lampara in the city, an Italian restaurant- which was fantastic food, friendly staff and very reasonably priced. Many of the restaurants in the city do not open until around 7:30pm. Overall, we had a fantastic stay at Pacific Hotel Fortino and it would definitely be top of the list when we revisit Turin again, we definitely recommend!
