The staff spoke good English, were really welcoming. The restaurant is also nice, I would recommend the Junior Suite for the little extra it costs it was well worth it too have 2 rooms and the bathroom. Which was also very clean, and modern which was surprising due to the art deco look of the hotel furniture. Next time im in Turn will definitely stay here again.
I stayed for 6 nights. This was my first visit to Turin, and I particularly wanted something central. The hotel is on the 4th floor of a building, overlooking the Piazza. It is not very expensive, and therefore fairly basic, but the room was clean and comfortable. If you are tall, you might have a problem with the sloping ceiling, but on the positive side, you would be able to see out of the high window!
There is no breakfast provided, but that is not a problem as the Piazza itself has several cafes and there are plenty of places for coffee and croissant with the locals in the little streets all around.

Our Italy trip involved walking within cities and use of trains between cities and towns so we looked for centrally located accommodation. Adalesia was a short walk from the Torino station, close to restaurants, shops and "tourist destinations", making it an ideal location.
Our initial introduction was a little bizarre - the mature couple running the hotel speak no English and we speak no Italian - however, after what was obviously the routine spiel about the hotel (in Italian), the lady in reception was able to show us the door code for access to the building and introduce us to our room using gestures and pointing. After this we communicated with smiles and waves as we came and went!
The room was very comfortable and quiet - except for the shared plumbing. Although little "people noise" reached us from next door, it sounded as if their shower was in our wardrobe! I'm sure they also shared our bathroom showers and flushes - not a big issue but a bit off-putting.
Adalesia did not take our deposit/payment before we stayed (as expected by the Expedia booking confirmation) - a bit of a surprise when given the final bill. Fortunately the receptionist at that time had some English so we could work out we were not being charged twice!
Having said all that, we really enjoyed our time in Torino and would happily stay at Adalesia again.
