My husband and I stayed at Hotel Turenne Le Marais for 3 nights in September, at the end of a 2-week European trip. I booked this hotel because the Marais hotels that were highly recommended to me were all booked (6-8 weeks in advance), and I was getting panicky about finding anything... I should have kept looking.
On the plus side: the hotel is in a good, central Marais location. Rue de Turenne is a medium-busy street -- not as busy/noisy as Rue Antoine, and not a quiet side street, but we had no problems with a noisy street at night. It's also pretty reasonably priced, but not quite what I consider a "good value." Many good restaurants nearby (try the restaurants/cafes a block away, on the Place de Marche de St. Catherine). Convenient to the Place des Vosges and Bastille, and walkable to Notre Dame or the Louvre. We had an itty-bitty balcony overlooking Rue de Turenne, and I liked watching the world go by on the street. The mattress was also quite comfortable.
On the negative side: The standard room was tiny, which I wasn't surprised by, but it felt really cramped and had almost no storage space for clothes or luggage. There was a shallow closet (12" deep) with a tacky folding metal door on it. The bed was very small -- a double, i.e. smaller than a queen size bed -- and for tall folks like us, it wasn't great. We inquired about a larger room, but none was available, and the beds are apparently all the same size. The bathroom was extremely small, and extremely ugly. The hairdryer was a wall-mounted 1970's-era model, which generated a small amount of warm air and a lot of noise. But while you're slowing drying your hair, you can survey the cracked tiles, dirty grout, and rust-stained toilet.
No wi-fi in the rooms -- only in the lobby -- which was very annoying. The elevator was out of service for the last 2 days of our stay. Unlike another reviewer who got caught (literally) in the broken elevator drama, the hotel did take 30 Euro's off of our bill for the inconvenience, without us having to ask. Note that the hotel has two small ice cube trays, and at least one of them is probably empty, so if you want ice.... good luck! Indifferent daytime front-desk people, but one of the night guys was at least friendly. Sad decor: sort of blah 80's-remodel-on-a-budget with some "pastoral" prints on the wall.
Loved the Marais area, but next time we'll find a better place to stay.
