Turin was our first stop on a 2 week road trip round northern Italy and it turned out to be the stop that we rated all other accommodation against.
This is a great place to stay. Effectively, you get your own apartment with bedroom, spacious lounge, kitchenette and lovely bathroom. Nina, your hostess, lives across the hallway with her family and pets.
It's centrally-located on the 2nd floor of an airy building next to a bank. From the moment we got there we couldn't have felt more welcome. Nina speaks perfect English and recommended and booked restaurants for us, pointed out various places for drinks etc on her maps and organised our parking in a local garage for us.
The apartment itself is nicely decorated with a frescoed ceiling and lots of attention to detail - from the fresh-cut roses to the bathroom toiletries to the couple of on the house beers in the fridge, petits fours and fruit in the lounge. The bed was very comfy. Wi-fi is available.
The breakfast was delicious. There were yoghurts, milk, jams, cheese etc left for us in the fridge and Nina dropped off a basket of freshly-squeezed juice, warm pastries and bread at a time of our choosing every morning. Coffee was made in the cool Nespresso machine - I really want one now! - and there were all sorts of teas available.
The one thing I'd flag up is that the apartment is in a residential neighbourhood and the street outside can be quite noisy with traffic and a tram running along it. There is no double-glazing, in keeping with the building I guess and because it must get too hot for it. It's fine in the day of course but if you're a light sleeper like me, take your earplugs and you should be OK.
That said, we genuinely wouldn't hesitate to stay here again and I can't think of many places I'd say that about. It was the best value for money accommodation of our whole trip I think considering the nice little extras you got, the lovely breakfast, pretty surroundings and care shown by Nina.
Turin is a lovely city. We had some great food (thanks Nina!), fully involved ourselves in the aperitivo culture and enjoyed wandering around checking things out. Just wish we'd given ourselves a little more time there!
