The Art Hotel Boston is at the heart of the innovative philosophy of Art Hotel Italia, where art is the leading figure of a new concept in hospitality. A dynamic hotel,
a sort of "ongoing museum", located in a historic building in the residential Crocetta quarter, surrounded by cultural institutions such as the Modern Art Gallery (GAM),
the Merz Foundation, the Sandretto Re Rebaudengo Foundation and the former OGR (once the Railway Repair Yards, today a major exhibition area).
The 1911 building was recently refurbished in order to host modern and contemporary artworks and eclectic collections ranging from art books and rare musical vinyl LP's, from modern furniture classics to vintage and designer pieces.
Sweeping from the reception rooms to the bedrooms, through the bar and the garden, a true love and passion for collecting, under all forms, can be perceived as in a private house.
The Art Hotel becomes the place where the culture of hospitality is revealed through the softening charm of beauty.
Since the complete refurbishment of the hotel and its 87 rooms at the beginning of the new millennium, the aesthetic and conceptual research involving spaces and bedrooms is under an ongoing evolution process, playing with the furniture and the decor inspired and conceived starting from a fantasy, a theme, an artist. The Art Rooms were born as a natural consequence of this research and they reflect the elaboration of artistic movements and personalities that had an impact on modern and contemporary art history.
The range of bedrooms goes from the famous Picasso Room to those dedicated to artists such as Yves Klein, Giulio Paolini, Antonio Trotta, Nicola Bolla, among others, and represents one of the veins of ongoing transformation and enrichment of the hotel. All rooms have air conditioning, pay TV, satellite TV, Wi-Fi, full mini-bar.
"la linea continua" restaurant embodies the gastronomic expression of the artistic concepts of the Art Hotels.
An unconventional minimal design with original artwork by Emilio Scanavino for a restaurant that features a creative menu that changes weekly accompanied by an extensive wine list. Besides the creative menu, tasty combinations can be selected à la carte among groundbreaking dishes suggested by the Chefs Gerardo Delle Donne and Matteo Dal Canton, playing with the finest regional tradition and international culinary trends, thus creating surprising combinations of shapes and tastes. "la linea continua" restaurant is open for lunch and dinner every day to welcome a local and international clientele.
For relaxing moments, to gather with friends or talk about business, the Fibonacci Bar is the ideal location. Overlooking an appealing private garden in the heart of the city, it's the ideal place for excellent cocktails in an outstanding setting, furnished with unique pieces of modern design and artworks by important Italian and International masters from the 50's to now.
Every Thursday evening the Art Aperitif is not-to-be-missed: starting around 7.00 p.m., it is the weekly hip gathering spot for both the hotel guests and the local Turin clientele, at times featuring an artistic or cultural happening.
