« You get what you pay for...Ish »
I stayed in this hotel for a night because I was in Turin to watch a Juventus match. Although I didn't spend much time in the hotel, I can assure you it was not great. The room was not clean. Marks on the mirrors and very dusty room in general! Breakfast did not have a great variety but it had the basics. We payed €160 for 3 rooms, so that was not bad. Would not recommend for people who prefer luxury!

« A Great Economy Alternative to Turin Hotels »
Don’t be put off by the rather dowdy 70’s style exterior of this hotel in Rivoli just outside Turin. Inside it’s spacious and spotlessly clean and modern. The receptionist, Wilma, showed us our room and told us a little of the attractions to see in Turin. We could have taken the metro but decided to drive into Turin as we had to do some shopping at a sports store along the way. Turin traffic was surprisingly easy to navigate and there are some beautiful views over the city from the belvedere on the eastern side of the River Po (a rather muddy and polluted looking river!) The hotel rooms were more than adequate as was the bathroom – nothing felt small and budget – yet given the price we paid – 52 euros – you would expect a lot worse. The towels were white and fluffy and everything was spotlessly clean. We had lunch in the restaurant as we’d just arrived. That evening, we walked about a kilometer down the road to an excellent pizza restaurant for dinner. Breakfast was adequate with meats, cheese, cereals, all sorts of coffee and fresh orange juice. I would like to have given the Tulip Inn 5 stars but have taken off one star as our bed was incredibly uncomfortable. Unfortunately we didn’t retire till almost midnight – too late to change rooms. The bed squeaked when you sat on it or turned over and I kept rolling into the middle. The mattress was very hard – but not in a good way. If you happen to stay in Room 215 and the bed is awful, then it means the receptionist I spoke to about it on check out took no notice of me. She didn’t seem to care about anything much, unlike helpful Wilma the day before! Free parking. Free internet.

« Very good hotel for stay in Turin »
Nice hotel staff and very good service. Nice room equipped with teapot and coffee, tea. There are good restaurant and drinkbar. Hotel is situated near to ring road so it is good for tourist traveling by car. The views around the hotel are not so nice.

« Clean and Friendly »
Very clean hotel, the staff are friendly and helpful. The food in the hotel was good for an evening meal, but there wasn't a huge choice for breakfast. There isn't much around the hotel to walk to, but there is a very good restaurant about 500 meters away. if you are there over the weekend the restaurant is open for a limited time, something that I was caught out by working late one night. however the staff did sort me out with a toasted sandwich, which was actually really good.

« Good hotel but in industrial area »
This is the budget hotel located in the industrial area of Rivoli.
If you haven't got a car you'll find it difficult to go to Turino.
Rooms are fine with very clean bathrooms.
The towels are fine and not worn out. The beds are fine though a bit small.
There's a small fitness room that has just been installed. You might not find it in the hotel's website.
The staff is kind and helpful.
