Grand Hotel Sitea

City-Center Lodgings - Romantic Lodgings - Culinary Luminary

     
Character: Stately four-star hotel with lovely rooms in the perfect central location.
Advantages: Walk to everything, and there is so much to see and do in Turin that this is a BIG plus! You may not need the superb fitness room after all that walking, but if you do, it's complimentary.
Location: On Via Carlo Alberto, a few minutes walk from the Egyptian Museum, Piazza Castello, Palazzo Reale, Mole Antonelliana and Piazza San Carlo. The Po River is just a few blocks away, and it is very easy to get here by car. Click here to see the map for Grand Hotel Sitea.
Turin is a bit of a mystery: although it's a most pleasant city filled with gorgeous buildings, incredibly well-organized and semi-deserted world-class museums and famous eateries, set against the dramatic backdrop of the snow-capped Italian Alps, for some reason it has not become the tourist mecca it deserves to be. Partly this has been because the general public just didn't know -- and the Winter Olympics helped to change that. But it has also been because the average level of accommodations is anything but world class -- with a few notable exceptions such as this grand dame that was recently restored from tip to toe. If you want to enjoy authentic Italy while seeing unforgettable sights and tasting unparalleled meals, we highly recommend e few days in Turin at the Grand Hotel Sitea!

Rooms: 120, including singles, standard and deluxe doubles, triples and junior suites. All are decorated in an elegant style that recalls the beginning of the 20th century, when the hotel was built. Floors are carpeted or parquet. Mattresses are incredibly comfortable; you can choose your pillow from an ample menu, and the bedspreads are washed after each guest. Triple rooms have a king bed or two single beds plus a single sleep sofa. The deluxe rooms have updated marble bathrooms and offer more space; they have walk-in closets instead of wardrobes, plus a sitting area. Some deluxe rooms have a whirlpool bathtub or an oversized stall shower. There are three sets of interconnecting deluxe rooms. Some rooms face the courtyard (but double-glazed windows make all the rooms quiet). Wheelchair-accessible bathrooms have showers that are fine for everyone. Non-smoking rooms are available.
   
   
Features: Air conditioning, double-glazed windows, color satellite TV, pay TV, Internet TV, direct-dial telephone with high-speed DSL connection, and mini-bar. Most deluxe rooms have a safe. Each room has a private bathroom with bathtub and wall shower or stall shower, hair dryer, bathrobes and slippers, and courtesy set.
