“Funky & friendly”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2012

This B&B is run with great enthusiasm by Cristina who was very warm and welcoming. The room was comfortable, with a window that could be left open (providing you don't mind the nearby clock chiming every half hour or so, which I found quite relaxing!) It's in a very interesting historical area, with great restaurants and cafes very close by, and only a short walk to the city centre. It was very easy to get to via the tram from the Porta Nuova train station. There are quite a few stairs to climb and no lift, so travel light! Breakfast is coffee and a brioche in two nearby cafes, both of which were excellent. I found this to be a very good value-for-money place to stay and would recommend it accordingly.

Book now -- don't hesitate. We were in the room called "The Book of Longing" (not sure why, but there is poetry there), with a large main room, sofa, big comfortable bed, roomy bathroom, and all of it very tastefully appointed. (A small fridge would be welcome.) The building is well located in the Quadrilatero, with Consolata around the corner and Piazza Savoia nearby, good restaurants, cafes and shops, and just a short walk to the city center. Cristina, the owner, is extra-enthusiastic and extremely kind and helpful. When next we visit Torino, we know we won't have to spend time wondering where to stay. Bravo Aprile!

I recently stayed for 4 nights in this atmospheric b & b, located in an old style italian house with courtyard in the heart of an alternative area of Turin. You are surrounded by lovely restaurants and bars and just off the main shopping drag. Cristina, the owner is very friendly and helpful andI had a lovely comfortable double room with everything I needed and all is very clean and nice. Highly recommended and very enjoyable.

The hostess of Aprile, Cristina, makes the B&B terrific. She is so enthusiastic and warm, immediately making you feel welcome into her home. She was great about email correspondence from the beginning, answering our questions before we arrived. We stayed in a cute apartment with a lot of character--it's a nice way to experience Torino. It had a small kitchen, a small (but very clean and wonderfully decorated) bathroom, and our bed in a loft area with a sunlight! From our bed we could see stars at night and the tower of the Consolata church--amazing! There is no lift, but we had very little luggage so the stairs were fine for us. The neighborhood (Quadrilatero di Romano--the old Roman Quarter) is really medieval and has tons of character. It's an easy 5-10min walk to the center, including the beautiful cafes/shopping of Via Roma and Via Po. You are literally right around the corner to Bicerin cafe, which is a must. Also 2min away from the Cathedral housing the Shroud of Turin. Breakfast is included but at a cafe a short walk away--we had a nice caffe and brioche in the morning! Parking is a little tricky but do-able. There is free parking on the big street nearby: Regina Margherita, but it is a very crowded area, difficult to maneuver, and we did not want to worry about a car break-in (very typical anywhere in Italy when you park on the street). So we parked at the Piazza Emanuele Filiberto garage, which was 20euro/day and worth it. Super close to the B&B and nice to know it was covered and secure. Cristina really makes this B&B what it is--we were even invited into her home to meet her family and have caffe. Grazie!

Il palazzo é meraviglioso, si trova in una zona centralissima di Torino. Le stanze sono accoglienti, molto ben arredate e silenziose. La padrona di casa é una persona allegra, ospitale e divertente. Un soggiorno davvero incantevole
