Top 10 accommodation options in Turin's historic centre

To capture the soul of Turin and appreciate this city with its discreet charm, the ideal place to stay is in the historic centre, close to the pedestrian streets. This is not only an opportunity to discover the backyards and interiors of old buildings that are inaccessible, but also a way of visiting the city on foot and going out in the evening without being dependent on transport. Turin has many original and old-fashioned accommodations that will let you rediscover the splendour of yesteryear and the Italian Dolce Vita. Here is a selection of the ten best accommodations in the city centre, all types combined (hotel, bed and breakfast and homestay) listed in order of price.

Look To, Turin-style elegance

This elegant bed and breakfast is one of the most popular of the city's upmarket establishments. With a superb view over the main piazza Vittorio Veneto, its four rooms illustrate the charm of the Turin style, a blend of tradition and modernity. It is the image of Giuliana, landscape architect and owner of the Look To.

Have you fallen in love with an armchair in your bedroom? Have you fallen in love with the wall tiles in your bathroom and would like the same in your home? You can order them! The hotel regularly renews its bedding and furniture to enhance the comfort of its rooms, but also to showcase local craftsmen and designers.

As well as accommodation and breakfast, the Look to also offers its guests original 'experiences' such as a hot-air balloon ride, a guided tour of the Pista 500 greenway, and a tasting workshop with a famous Turin ice-cream maker.
