A four-star, luxury hotel situated in the classic heart of Torino, Grand Hotel Sitea encapsulates the sophisticated elegance of the city that ignited Italy’s Risorgimento. Built in 1925, the hotel embodies the cosmopolitan style of Torino circa the early 1900’s and has distinguished itself as a premier historic hotel due in part to its close proximity to such important sites as Piazza San Carlo and Piazza Castello. Recognized in 2001 with the prestigious designation of “Locale Storico d’Italia” (Historic Locales of Italy) by the Italian government. A mainstay of the cultural and social evolution of the city, the hotel has welcomed noted musicians and artists such as Louis Armstrong, famous actors, Nobel prize winners and important political figures throughout its illustrious history.
With original Liberty-style architecture and lavish interiors recalling the bygone era of its founding, the hotel honors its prestigious past by maintaining an atmosphere of history and modernity, insightfully blending together antique touches with contemporary amenities in a perfect balance. Owned by the Lera family, the hotel manifests its strong tradition of family by embracing its guests into an environment of warmth and impeccable hospitality. Grandiose halls and salons beckon guests to relax in an ambiance of charm, while a lovely interior courtyard garden harnesses the tranquility of nature within the luxe walls of this city retreat. Amidst its impressive common spaces and spacious guest rooms, the hotel also boasts the noted, gourmet restaurant, Ristorante Carignano. The restaurant features an internationally influenced menu of offerings accented by traditional Piemontese dishes that pay homage to the region’s fine culinary traditions and precedent of premium ingredients.
