Turin Hospitality, Italy
At the turn of the new century, Turin's traditionally industrial nature began to change to incorporate a new penchant for culture and tourism. This process was also fostered by the 2006 Winter Olympics, which significantly boosted the expansion and requalification of Turin's hospitality.
Now, people who visit Turin can choose among over 350 hotels in the downtown area only, in all categories and price ranges, plus other accommodations, especially B&B and rooms for rent, without overlooking the cheaper solutions like youth hostels and rental homes.
Additionally, there are dozens of other hotels in Turin's suburbs, especially in the North-West (Venaria Reale and surroundings), South (Moncalieri and Nichelino) and South-East (Chieri), where the landscape is greener or mountainous and can attract nature lovers who prefer holiday farms or country homes far from the city bustle.
Most hotels are independent or tied to small local chains, with less standardized management focusing on more authentic, intimate and friendly hospitality.
The number of Bed & Breakfast is growing (about one hundred in the city of Turin only), loved by travelers who want a closer and more personal view of their surroundings.
Lastly, more and more hotels have moved into architecturally valuable buildings like Baroque or Art Nouveau buildings or even royal homes that formerly belonged to the Savoy family, able to give their guests a taste of history and unique experience.
