The Hotel de Turenne, a former cheapo pick near the Eiffel Tower, has new management, a new look, and (unfortunately) new prices.
Pros: Completely renovated. Air-conditioned. Short walk to the Eiffel Tower.
Cons: It got fancy (and expensive) on us.
The two-star Hotel de Turenne is another example of the recent trend of budget-friendly hotels going boutique in Paris. For years it was one of our go-to Eiffel Tower picks, as it had rates from €82.
This is no longer the case. In 2013 a new management team redid the joint with stylish carpets, beds, furnishing, and sparkling bathrooms. The look got an overhaul, too, with the “simple Formica furnishings” of yore giving way to slick modern pieces, snazzy striped wallpaper, framed prints, and chic what-nots. Don't get us wrong -- it's fabulous. It's just much more expensive now, too.
All 34 rooms are equipped with flat-screen TV, telephone, safe and air conditioning. Free Wi-Fi works throughout the hotel.
As is always the case in this situation, the rates spiked with the renovations. Rooms that were €82 are now about €182. However, in doing several searches, we were able to find some lower rates available at the last minute. This is worth exploring if the price is right.
A continental breakfast is served for €10. The Metro station École Militaire is a two-minute walk from the front door.

About the Hotel de Turenne neighborhood
Many of the surrounding streets offer up storybook views of the Eiffel Tower, still the tallest building in Paris. Another striking monument is the 18-carat-gold dome of the Invalides, that glimmers along the Seine's left bank, just east of the Eiffel Tower. Notable museums include the Musée d'Orsay, the Musée Rodin and the Musée du Quai Branly.
