Duparc Contemporary Suites
What We Love
- A central stay at a boutique hotel in refined Turin, with breakfast and an apartmentThe enticing urban design throughout the hotel's sleek and minimalist-inspired apartments
- The work of prominent Italian artists, such as Achille Castiglioni and Piero Manzu, which decorates the hotel throughout
- The fantastic location, in the heart of the city next to Parco del Valentino
What To Know
- These apartments feel more like a home-away-from-home than a hotel (think: washing machines and microwaves)

- Free WiFi
For a sleek, boutique design hotel in the gorgeously regal and refined Italian city of Turin, make a beeline for Duparc Contemporary Suites. The brainchild of architects Laura Petrazzini and Corrado Levi, the hotel is built to echo Italian rationalist design, with its concrete construction reflecting the city’s urban style. Views of the city can be enjoyed from the floor-to-ceiling windows of your apartment – a comfortable and stylish space featuring a living area and kitchenette, all painted in metallic hues with the occasional pop of colour.
The hotel sits right in the heart of Turin, next to the leafy Parco del Valentino – the city’s second-largest park. Turin’s tall buildings and tree-lined avenues give it something of an aristocratic air, and Italy’s first modern capital certainly isn’t lacking in baroque churches and palaces. It’s also a thoroughly modern urban destination, though; attractions like the Castello di Rivoli, a thousand-year-old palace housing a modern art museum, sum up its old-meets-new appeal.
How to Get There
Beautiful large rooms, every amenity, clean and comfortable. Outstanding service from the front desk personnel. We were a Women’s Soccer (Football) Team travelling from Canada for the European Masters Games. The front desk staff was exceptional in helping us find our way around the city, book tours, taxis and restaurants, and accommodating to our constantly changing needs. Highly recommend!
Our second stay at the DuParc following 2 weeks in Provence and it was just as fabulous as the first. From the moment you arrive Giacomo and the team are fantastic- nothing is too much trouble. The apartment we had (520) was huge and my kids loved their room, the kitchen and the TV, particularly as it enabled them to watch a premier league match. We enjoyed a fantastic meal in the hotel restaurant before it closed for the holidays and the breakfast team were great too. We were able to use the hop on hop off bus to get to the hotel (stops near the Borgo) or stroll through Valentino Park to the centre of town. Giacomo also booked us a table at Catullo Pizzeria on the Po as well as ordering our takeaway pizzas for us. He is an absolute mine of information and is a real asset to the Duparc. As before I would give this hotel 6 stars if I could. We would love to return - still need to visit the Egyptian Museum!
Magnificent room (appartement) with high quality products. I adored the space and the architecture. Little out of the centre so it takes a good walk to get into Torino centre but you can easily take bus, metro, tram, ... or a taxi (taxi is well affordable, approx 15€/rit form the hotel tot the centre.
