I have been staying in Hotel Turenne two or three times a year for the past six years or so.
I have found it to be convenient for the old parts of this beautiful city (Little Venice is around three hundred yards or less away) and when you discover the cut through, you are little more than five hundred yards from the center of the old town.
Now about the hotel itself; It is comfortable and clean, but the rooms can vary in size so you might be unlucky and get a smaller one. There is a lift (elevator) that serves some but not all rooms, there is also central air con, a godsend in the summer, and a jolly good buffet breakfast facility. Oh I nearly forgot, the place has a most excellent bar where you can get coffee and tea as well as the normal drinks one associates with a bar.
There is one thing I am not greatly keen on and that is the car park, yes its good value for money but it can be a real pig to get the car in and out when the place is full especially if you have a large car. Don't forget to book parking at the time of making your reservation or you may not get a slot.
So why do I use the place? Simply, its good value for money in an expensive city; it is easy to find; and yes I know I moan about the parking but it is there and I use it.
The staff are always friendly and helpful but this time they excelled themselves. You see as I was parking the car it became obvious that it had developed a major fault, all the staff including the manager worked with me, being my liaison officer, translator and general helper. They made sure that my recovery company did all the things they should and I had the car returned to me in only a couple of days.
So gentle traveller if you are prepared to accept that this hotel is business / tourist orientated and makes no pretence at being a "Hilton" I think you will enjoy the place.......I do.
