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
Bit outside of the city centre - which was still walkable though -.
No free parking in the neighbourhood. Price of the hotel garage equal to parking on the street side, so we chose the comfort and safety of the garage.
Front desk friendly and helpful.
Room was not just a room, but a very, very spacious bedroom with sitting area, hallway with lots of storage room leading to a roomy spotless bathroom with shower and separate bath.
Breakfast good, not changing during the week though.
Another point of consideration migh be access to front desk other than via steps.
Overall, we consider this one of the best - if not best - hotelroom / suite we stayed in worldwide.
Very well done.
We hated to leave our hotel as it felt like home with the huge rooms. The breakfast was Outstanding with multiple choices of food and drink. We liked the location next to the park, and easy access to the bus.
The luxury two bedroom suite at Duparc was perfect for our family of four. It had loads of room and the beds were very comfortable. The bathrooms were lovely as well. The front desk staff were extremely friendly and helpful and we would not hesitate to recommend this hotel.
We booked a superior apartment for a 5 night stay. The apartment was really big and very comfortable, the staff were really helpful & charming and our whole stay was made extra special staying here, especially with use of the spa on rainy days!
The hotel was so comfortable, clean, polite and helpfull staff, easy location, we stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment it was very spacious; overall I will stay again. Breakfast was perfect; has a selection of everything from cereals, eggs, cheeses, fruits, cakes ... etc.
