Good 6.0
Fairly good option for Thesen Island
Fairly nice hotel situated on Thesen Island...conveniently close to a few restaurants. Currently building outside the hotel....a lot of noise and dust going on. Some staff members were quite friendly, but do not deliver service. Waited over an hour for ice from room service - had to phone twice...

Turbo charged hotel service, style and location
We stayed for a long weekend on a visit we have done many times at other hotels. The Turbine is simply superb, the combination of the modern design combined with the reuse of historic artifacts is masterfully conceived, the staff from the Front Desk, Room Service and Bar plus the Restaurant Lounges were all well trained, friendly and professional. WE had a stunning view from our room over the canal and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
