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
Highly recommended. The staff were always friendly helpful and professional with perfect english and an encouraging tolerance of our attempts at spoken italian!. The appartment was stylish spacious and spotless. Situated a little below "tourist central" near Valentino park and river Po and adjacent to the San Silvario residential area, all three of which offer interesting walks (25minutes) into the city centre sights.
Two highlights made our stay memorable, First, the front desk staff. Each person we dealt with was welcoming, friendly, and helpful. Second, the hotel is only about a block from the city's largest park. Each morning and evening we walked through a beautiful park - a lovely way to begin & end each day.
Our junior suite was spacious, quiet, clean & comfortable. I wholeheartedly recommend this hotel. We would happily stay here again.
Our only issue was trouble connecting with wifi.
We absolutely loved staying in this hotel. It has very modern and beautiful rooms, great WiFi and great breakfast. We had a television with english channels a washing machine and coffee. Great location very close to 2 supermarkets. They have onsite parking that is gated. We would definitely stay here again. It’s the best place we have stayed in Torino.
