One night layover... Excellent!
Posted May 30, 2016
We had not planned to spend the night in Turin, rather just a train connection. Due to the Italian Rail strike, we came in the day before to avoid being stranded... We literally booked our room, by phone, from the McDonald's in the train station. We arrived 15 minutes later and everything was perfect! Not only that, we received an upgrade to a junior suite. The staff was gracious, spoke perfect English and were very helpful in giving recommendations for dinner and transfers. We had drinks on their terrace and we were surprised with a lovely tray of snacks. There was construction and a busy road outside our room, so I would suggest requesting an interior room if available. Breakfast buffet was very nice. Check-out was a breeze, and our taxi arrived almost immediately. Note: the cafe', on the corner to the left as you exit the hotel, is a perfect place for lunch or to have drinks .
