Hotels and Accommodations

If you wish to stay in a hotel, we recommend the following options, which are close to Politecnico di Torino, to a train station, and located in a nice part of town:

That being said, Torino has hundreds of B&B options, guest houses, vacation rentals, and many other hotel and accommodation options available. Our suggestion is to use any of the website services to book accommodations online, such as (but not limited to) Booking.com, Hotels.com, Expedia.com, Priceline.com. There, you will find many more options and more freedom to choose the accommodation that best suits your needs. If you book on your own, we only recommend that you choose an option within the green perimeter in the map below and avoid the area south-east of the train station “Torino Porta Nuova”, which is a fun area to go out at night but quite noisy and chaotic.

 

Typical prices for a single occupancy room in September fall between 100 and 150 EUR per night.

 

The area within which it is convenient to book an accommodation is within the green perimeter. The two main train stations and the main central square are indicated in red. Please avoid the area south-east of the station "Torino Porta Nuova" and the area north of the green perimeter.
