- 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
I stayed a few nights at Duparc. The room was very nice. It had large windows providing lots of light. The room was large and comfortable with good wardrobe. The bathroom was large and comfortable too. The choice of TV channels was good and wifi worked well.
The garage is easy to park even for larger car. The service at the reception is excellent.
The breakfast is average and the ladies working in the breakfast room mainly try to avoid customer contact. In overall, the experience was excellent and I strongly recommend this hotel. Fantastic value for money.
The staff is welcoming, the room is spacious, the equipment is very new, clean and tidy, a lot of space for storege, and the breakfast is normal, but the traffic noise is a little bit obvious in the room on the side close to street.
Although not in central Turin the hotel ticked all our boxes. Could not fault anything. Reception staff really knowledgeable and helped by booking taxis and restaurants. The nearby park was ideal for an early morning stroll. The city bus tour stop was a couple of minutes walk away.
Duparc was a good location for reaching the areas of Torino we were interested in: Fiat Historical Museum, Lingotto Track, and Auto Museum. It was also easy to access the motorway for other destinations in Piemonte.The staff were friendly, and helpful with our requests. The Apartment was comfortable, although not refurbished recently. We would stay there again.
We had a stay for one night. That was way too short. We enjoyed our beautiful room with the comfortable beds, really good airconditioning, nice couch, lots of closetspace, microwave, minifridge, tele, big bathroom, seperate wc.
