Once upon a time, Turin was not particularly well-known for its hotels, as it rarely received the influx of tourists that most other cities in Italy did. After the 2006 Winter Olympics, many previously dreary hotels were refurbished and brought up to speed with the rest of the country. Bedrooms tend to be large, the beds comfortable and the service more efficient than almost anywhere else in Italy.
Newer hotels are located south of the city center in Lingotto, where many of the Olympic stadiums and venues are located. The disadvantage to staying there is that you must take a tram or cab to see the major sights or to have a choice of restaurants.
