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)
- There is an on-site restaurant to grab a snack at
- 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
The Duparc Contemporary Suites was a gem of a find, located just 20 minutes from all the attractions, with excellent access to mass transit. Comfortable beyond belief, and because we booked directly with the hotel, instead of any of the search engines (Bookings, Hotels, Expedia, etc.) we got the breakfast and access to their delightful spa at no extra cost, a benefit to take notice of, so fellow travelers, heed this advise! The hotel had parking at a reasonable rate, the rooms were spacious, comfortable, well appointed, extraordinary closet space, fridge, microwave, large screen TV, excellent wifi. Bed very comfy, even the pillows were great! I travel with my own and did not need to use it, and that is saying something! The bathroom was a dream, large, with a sizable shower and bath tub, large sink, plenty of counter space and storage below for all mine and her cosmetics and hair drier, curler, etc, The commode and bidet are in a separate room, another big plus!
We used buses and metro to go into the town center, both are well within walking distance. f
Excellent service great price awesome room just need better exercise equipment they need update the exercise facility
The front rooms facing the street on the weekend are noisy because of police sirens
Big rooms, very friendly staff, our stay was very pleasant.
Good breakfast! very strategic location! We booked via booking if you want access to the spa it's best to book direct on their website, than the access is included.
A wonderful find! Tons of space to spread out, with an excellent bathroom (and a lovely rain shower) as well as an in-kitchen washer. The hotel is located in a very residential neighborhood, adjacent to the lovely riverside park and about a 30 minute walk from the historic center. However there are sights to see nearby, and plenty of good places to eat within walking distance. The breakfast spread is very good, with typical Italian pastries as well as a soft-boiled egg station, some meat and cheese, yogurt and fresh fruit, among other things. The hotel also offers parking (15 Euro per day) and a spa that allows access to the pools for 10 Euro.
Loved this apartment hotel. Front desk extremely friendly and helpful. Went out of their way to help and answer questions. Always courteous and in a good mood. We could not believe how huge our apartment was. For the five of us, there was ample space, and 2.5 bathrooms. In-suite washer was a godsend. Views were spectacular. Floor to ceiling windows. Wow! We have never seen such huge accommodations in a European city. Bravo!
