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!

We were in Turin to attend a wedding and were pleasantly surprised by this beautiful city. Nina's apartment (officially name Bed and Ex http://www.bedandex.it) was the perfact place to stay in the city center.

The apartment is very centrally located in a residential neighborhood and only a few blocks from Piazza Vittorio, from which is a 15-minute stroll in the porticcoed Via Po to Piazza Castello, the main piazza/shopping district in Turin. We were able to find street parking with no problem and Nina taught us how to buy parking vouchers from the tobbaco shop downstairs so we could leave the car there all day.

The apartment is on the 2nd floor of a 19th century building with private entrance. It is very spacious and consists of a bedroom, living room with kichenette and bathroom. The apartment is quite tastefully decorated. There is even an old painted ceiling in the living room. The bathroom is newly renovated and very nice. We also slept really well in the comfortable bed.

The best part of our stay was Nina's hospitality. She is such a gracious host and welcomed us with biscuits and fruits as well as information about Turin when we arrived. She speaks perfect English since she studied in the US and was very easy to talk to. We enjoyed chatting with her and learning about Turin. She and her family live in the apartment across the hall and were extremly nice and accessible.

The breakfast was great with fresh baked pastries and rolls, fresh orange juice, several jams, yogurts and DIY coffees from her Nespresso machine.

We loved our stay in this B&B and would not hesitate to recommend it to our friends. Thank you Nina for your warm hospitality and we hope to come back soon!

We have visted Italy extensively over twenty -five years. This year was our first stay in Torino (Turin). We stayed at "Bed and Ex" www.bedandex.it which is well situated to reach the center of town by foot of tram, but is located is a residential neighborhood.

We arrrived just as the famous shroud was being taken out.
What a lovely city! Fantastic restaurants and art. Nina, who owns the B&B where we stayed was a perfect guide. She knows everything about the city and is an expert on the art and culture. Ask her about the chocolate factory. My husband and I are chocolate lovers and it was some of the best we have ever had (including at aour next stop in Switzerland).

The B&B was beautifully decorated with down conforters, comfortable bed, tasteful details and a lovely, clean modern bathroom with ample hot water!. The building is 19th century with all the charm that goes along. The suite has plenty of room. It's really two rooms. The price is very inexpensive considering the high quality and space. We wanted to stay much longer.
