What is that?
Evaluation by our Hotel Advisor.
Originally known as Residence Du Parc, The Duparc Contemporary Suites was born from the dream of architects Laura Petrazzini and Corrado Levi.
Entering this Hotel you will feel like entering an art gallery. Built entirely of visible reinforced concrete, this hotel is one of the great expressions of Italian 70’s rationalism and a fascinating piece of architectural work.
The interiors of DUPARC Contemporary Suites are therefore characterized by large spaces with bright rooms and floor-to-ceiling windows.
The Hall and the suites host the extraordinary works of art of the 60’s and early 70’s: you can admire paintings by Mario Schifano and works by Michelangelo Pistoletto, along with design elements by Flos, Vitra and Artemide, including the Parentesi lamps by Achille Castiglioni and Piero Manzù.
In 2014 a radical transformation took place, up to the transformation into Duparc Contemporary Suites, a hotel to all effects.
The 75 Suites from 50 to 120 square meter, featuring modern furnishings, include free Wi-Fi, a cozy lounge and a TV with satellite channels.
They are divided into Deluxe Junior Suites, Design Suites, Standard Suites, Superior Suites, Comfort Suites, Deluxe Suites, Executive Suites and Luxury Suites with two Bedrooms.
In some cases, in your suite, you may find an Illy Coffee maker and a Welcome Kit of 2 bottles of water and 2 coffee pods. Unfortunately the kit is not replaced the next day after cleaning the suite.
Private bathrooms with showers feature complimentary toiletries L’Occitane, hairdryer and bidets. If you need it, you can also request a Dental Set, Shaving Set and Sewing Set.
Near Valentino Park and the Turin city centre, the hotel is just 500 metres from the nearest Metro station, with which you can easily and quickly reach different points of the city. The city centre is also within easy walking distance and offers many shops, cafes and restaurants.
You’re a couple of blocks from the San Salvario district, close to Lingotto and gourmet superstore Eataly.
Duparc Contemporary Suites it is easily reachable, as it is only 2 km from the Porta Nuova railway station and about 30 minutes by car from the Turin airport.
Food & Drink
Breakfast are available daily from 7:30 AM to 10 AM.
Sweet and savoury breakfast buffet is served at the restaurant including, cheese and cold meats, with choice of foods also without lactose and without gluten.
Very good coffee and cappuccino, some varieties of desserts and homemade cakes. Instead the whole salty part should be improved both in quality and variety.
Our opinion on breakfast is not very positive and overall is not up to the structure.
The hotel’s restaurant occupies a mezzanine floor overlooking the dramatic double-height lobby. During the period of our stay it was closed and we cannot give you a judgment. It is also closed on Saturday for lunch and on Sunday for lunch and dinner.
The hotel offers excellent services. Featured amenities include complimentary newspapers in the lobby, dry cleaning/laundry services, and a 24-hour front desk.
At the reception the staff is extremely kind, helpful, and very professional. They quickly presented the hotel and the available services: relaxation area/SPA, fitness area with Personal Trainer available to customers, parking, free WIFI, bike rental service, late check-out.
The babysitting and dog-sitter service are fundamental services that make The Duparc Contemporary Suites the perfect hotel for families and puppies lovers.
The appointment with the DUPARC Oriental SPA is inevitable. There are specific areas to revive oneself, like the aromatic sauna, the vitality pool, and the tropical rain effect showers, the fountain to alleviate an aching neck and the relaxation area with a choice of oriental herbal teas. Relaxing atmosphere inspired by traditional Japanese baths.
To signal that the SPA is closed on Mondays and on some public holidays.
Technogym equipped gym is open 24h, and offers several cardio machines. In this gym you will also find UNICA, the most comprehensive physical fitness and muscle-strengthening equipment that exist.
If you want to feel at home even when you travel, Duparc Contemporary Suites is for you.
