HOTEL VICTORIA TORINO
HOTEL VICTORIA TORINO is a charming four-star boutique hotel located in a quiet, pedestrian-only street in the heart of Torino’s elegant downtown. World renowned for its Baroque architecture, Torino is also home to exceptional museums, luxury shopping, and fine restaurants—and a stay at Hotel Victoria Torino puts you within minutes of it all. The hotel has been owned and operated by three generations of the Rolla and Vallinotto families ever since it opened in 1961. The ornate interiors showcase the owners’ collection of nineteenth-century furniture, French and Italian artworks, and other treasures collected on their travels throughout Europe and Asia. The overall effect is luxurious but also warm and welcoming, with a staff that is attentive but never intrusive. The cozy common areas, which include a library with fireplace and a lush garden courtyard, are the perfect spots to tuck yourself away with a book, laptop, or cup of tea or coffee.
The on-site Iside Spa, named for the Egyptian goddess of health, offers ample opportunities to relax and rejuvenate, whether with a swim in the indoor heated pool, a soak in the hot tub, or a massage or other treatment. Add in 106 comfortable rooms and suites and you have the makings of a home away from home, a quality that has made the hotel a favorite destination with travelers from around the globe, including many celebrities. One of the highlights of your stay is sure to be the complimentary breakfast buffet, generously stocked with hot and cold items, including savory egg dishes, locally produced cold cuts and cheeses, a large selection of teas, fresh-baked pastries, locallymade organic jams and honeys, artisanal chocolate spreads, and rare pistachio cream. Gluten-free and vegan items are also available. The hotel doesn’t have a restaurant, but a selection of light dishes such as salads and pasta can be ordered at lunch or dinnertime, and the staff is happy to recommend a restaurant, trattoria, or café.
