We stayed in Turin for 5 days in November and had the most amazing time! Agnese's apartment is stunning, sparsely but tastefully decorated with everything you need for a long or short stay. It's location is PERFECT! Right in the heart (email hidden)ly piazza bursting with restaurants and cocktail bars, and only steps away from the centre of Turin, and the Balon markets at Porta Palazzo. For anyone looking at staying in Turin this is most definitely the place to be! The kitchen was a godsend, and we made the most of it!! The apartment is surrounded by gorgeous shops and markets to get fresh produce. Concetta, Agnese's mother, met us and showed us the ropes. She was absolutely delightful; and Agnese seemed just as lovely, though sadly we were never able to meet her. This apartment is the perfect nest, especially for a young couple like us.
Abbiamo passato 5 giorni meravigliosi a Torino, durante novembre. L'appartamento di Agnese è bellissima, semplice ed artistica, con tutte le cose necessari per un soggiorno comodo. La zona è perfetta!! L'appartamento è nel cuore di una zona vivace; piena dei ristoranti ed i bar bellissimi, solo due passi dai mercati a porta palazzo o dal centro storico di Torino. La cucina è stata un vantaggio, e abbiamo cucinato con verdure fresche dai mercati, e carne buonissima dalla macelleria proprio vicino. Concetta, la mamma di Agnese, è venuta a incontrarci al appartamento per farci sapere come funziona la casa. Lei è stata fantastica, e anche Agnese sembrava simpaticissima come la sua mamma (tristemente non abbiamo potuto incontrarla). L'appartamento è un nido perfetto per una coppia giovane.
Grazie Agnese e Concetta per il soggiorno bellissimo!!
Agnese was a lovely host to deal with. Nothing was made complicated.
The location is brilliant as you are surrounded by great restaurants & bars with the main shopping area is only a 10 minute walk away.
We were there in August when it was very warm so struggled to sleep as there is no air com.
The apartment was beautiful and is in an excellent location. To our surprise we were greeted at the train station and escorted to the apartment. After traveling for 16+ hours it was greatly appreciated. She (her mother) immediately responded to our request for a fan within hours. (We unfortunately traveled during a very warm time of year). We received one last surprise before leaving.......a ride to the train station at 6am. I would without a doubt recommend Agense not only for the quality of apartment but hospitality too!
The reservation was canceled 5 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
I had the pleasure of renting Agnese's apartment during a long stay in Turin for work. The flat is ideally located in the vibrant Roman Quarter of Turin's historical center, in one of the city's most beautiful piazzas. While I did not get to meet Agnese in person, her mother was very welcoming and friendly, and always available if I had a question for my host. She also had stocked the apartment with everything I might need to make my stay more comfortable: extra clean sheets, towels, and even some spices and basic foodstuffs for the kitchen, as well as brochures and guidebooks to Turin were welcome amenities upon arrival. The apartment was spacious and very comfortable. Large windows (as well as a pair of french windows, opening onto a little balcony) allowed for lots of natural light during the day, while curtains and blackout interior shutters allowed for privacy, quiet, and sound sleeping at night. Finally, one of the best bathrooms I've seen in any apartment in Europe; it was quite large, with a walk-in shower, washer, large basin, towel heater, etc. Could not recommend this flat more, and will be sure to stay here whenever I come to Turin.
Mi ha fatto molto piacere restare nell’appartamento di Agnese durante un soggiorno di molti mesi a Torino per lavoro. Situato idealmente nel quadrilatero romano vivace, in una delle più belle piazze del centro storico. Sebbene non avevo incontrata Agnese personalmente, sua madre mi ha fatto un benvenuto caloroso ed era sempre disponibile nel caso che avevo bisogna di qualsiasi cosa. Ben sistemato con tutte le comodità di casa propria: molte lenzuola e asciugamani puliti; di spezie, di riso, e anche alcune cose da mangiare dopo un lungo viaggio; e diverse guide e brochure utile per conoscere la città. Camere spaziose e molto confortevole, con grandi finestre e un bel panorama della piazza, non potrei raccomandare l’appartamento di più!
I was in Turin for an art fair, and Agnese's flat was a perfect home from home. Being a market nut I was well served as the Porto Palazzo market is only a minute away. Turin is a lovely city - surrounded by mountains and probably with more than it's fair share of chocolate! - and we shall certainly be returning. Agnese's apartment really is right in the middle of the city and is quiet, clean, well appointented and spacious. Five stars!
We had a perfect staying at Agnes' place. Small flat great for two people, very quiet, all comforts, great shower, good quality bed, kitchen with all facilities, we will sure come back!
Mi ha accolto Cocetta la mamma di Agnese, con un passaggio da Lingotto Fiere dove ero per lavoro, al Quadrilatero, il quartiere di Torino dove sono sempre andata la sera nel corso dei miei precedenti soggiorni. Il Quadrilatero e' un quartiere accogliente e la casa e' in una posizione ottima, ha una corte interna, con balconi a ringhiera e le stanze sono esattamente come appaiono dalle foto. È la prima volta che scelgo un appartamento per una trasferta di lavoro e sono contenta perché ogni volta che sono tornata a dormire, per sei notti di soggiorno, mi sono sentita a casa. Concetta e' disponibile e mi sono trovata molto bene, lo consiglio! Se avete tempo a Torino e amate il genere, non mancate una passeggiata al mercato di Porta Palazzo e una pausa all'hammam dell'Istituto di cultura italo-arabo!
The apartment is in a great location. Walking distance to all the major places in the core of Torino. Two blocks from a huge and colourful fruit & veggie market(on sundays it's a flea market).Tthe apartment is quiet, even though it's inside a courtyard with many families living around the perimeter. I felt I had my own little space with total pivacy.
It's fuly equipped, nice kitchen, spacious bedroom, nicely designed bathroom. The host, Agnese, is very warm and cheerful.
definitely a good chice for either a short or long stay. I stayed for six nights.
I highly recommend Agnese´s apartament!. It's in a beautiful square in the heart of Turin. Fully renovated, clean, bright and very comfortable. And best of all you can walk to anywhere in the city; the area where the apartment is located is full of restaurants, bars and nice people. Agnese is the best airbnb member I've met, welcomed me into their home and she made everything I find it very easy. She is very nice, I would love to chat more with her. Besides his mother is very loving and generous, the day I returned to Madrid she took me in his car to the station. Thank you both!
It was one of the best and most magical trips I have made and I can say that I was right to choose Agnese´s house.
Ah, one more item on the generosity of Agnes! to get home, she knew it was my birthday ,gave me some beautiful flowers.
