Reviewed 3 May 2012

Chose this hotel because of walking distance to Porta Susa Train station. The room was a bit small but very well maintained and super clean. Not modern facilities but what they had was classic and very nice.
Had trouble with the WiFi and had to sit in the lobby to use my laptop. That was quite inconvenient - I dont think their server is strong enough to reach the rooms.
Front desk staff was not very helpful and we had to figure out everything on our own. We didnt know how to phone room service and asked at the desk and she sent us downstairs to the kitchen to get help??? She didnt help with the internet access, etc.
Breakfast was included and had a good variety of meats, eggs, rolls, etc.
I would recommend this hotel and would stay again.

This hotel has a fairly good location and you can get a night there for a very low price. The staff were fairly efficient and helpful. However, the way the hotel interior looks and feels is that of an old and not well maintained place. My room was small and dated. The bed wasn't very comfortable. The bathroom was small. The coffee at breakfast from vending machines.

The hotel is in an ideal position, close to Porta Susa rail station and at 15 minutes' walk from Piazza Castello. Breakfast rich and varied. There is also a restaurant inside the hotel: It's open only in the evening and they offer the same menu for the whole week. Staff very helpful and friendly. The hotel furniture is a bit old-fashioned and not appropriate for a four-star hotel.
The price is excellent. We paid 269 euros for a four night stay in a double room, breakfast included

Stayed at Diplomatic for one night in February 2012 - chosen for its close proximity to Porta Susa Train Station and City Centre. For the price, Diplomatic offers excellent value. Rooms were small but more than adequate for two people, though the bed isnt the most comfy - perhaps a problem if staying longer than a couple of nights, breakfast was plentiful (though in the basement so there are no windows!) and it allowed us freedom to explore the City with ease. Staff were helpful too though they did try and charge me for underground parking even though I didn’t have a car – though it was as honest mistake I think! Free Wi-Fi is an additional bonus.

We've stayed at Diplomatic for two nights in January 2012. For sure the best years of the hotel have passed, as it's a bit worn out. It's still a good deal however, as for 50 euros you can have a quite decent place to sleep next to the main Turin's attractions, with breakfast and wifi included. Hotel offers it's own airport shuttle, but it's not worth it, as the regular bus to the Turin's airport is 200 meters away, and it cost 25% of the hotel's fare.

Room Tip: Ask for room on one of the higher floors, as the ones on the first floor has almost no sunlight comi...
