Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Armstrong Paris
I must say i was not at all impressed with this hotel! The rooms have not been RECENTLY REFURBISHED as suggested by many and their own website! Small, Appilances old, Wall Paper hanging off walls... not v happy with the standard particularly for the amount we paid for our stay. Metro is near although area can be considered quite scary! French their not particularly nice to us as a group of females... (and we could speak the language!).. I could go on about that but will let you make up your own minds on it.... Breakie... less than desirable! Good Luck if your staying in the Armstrong is all I can say!
Be open minded
The rooms are very basic, small and very hot when we were there. The hotel is used by prostitutes as we found out watching them entering and leaving the premises while we were sat in reception taking a drink. We should have known that when I saw condoms littering the street outside. Complaining to the manager he offered us another night free but all in all I wouldn't go there again!! I wouldn't recommend this hotel at all but if you want to stay here... its interesting.. !!!
Convenient, Compact, Considerably Noisy
CONVENIENT- Near the metro station, Carrefour shopping center, weekend outdoor market, 15 min. from airport (in quiet traffic hours). Skip the hotel breakfast and eat at McDonald's by the Metro station, 3 Euro (McDonald's has also the city's hotest and cheapest coffee - ca. 1 Euro) or buy a warm panini sandwich at the neighborhood bakery.
COMPACT - Tiny double rooms, incredibly cramped bathroom, our bed had space for night table only on one side. But if you plan to spend most of your stay sightseeing and out-on-the-town, the hotel is a good value for the money.
CONSIDERABLY NOISY - Street noises are not to be avoided, but irritated drivers beeping their car horns in the middle of the night are not appreciated. Perhaps it's better if and when the air conditioning is turned on.
Courteous service, though the cleaning personell forgot to refresh the supply of soap and shampoo.
Fine for the price
Found the budget hotel to be just that. Yes it was in need of a make-over in decor but so what? Stayed on the first floor .. a quiet room and enjoyed a pleasant continental breakfast of cereals, juices, croissants, cheese, fruit, yogurt, pate spread. jams and tea/coffee/hot chocalate. I would definitely use this hotel again. Only drawback was the extra time on the Metro to get to tourist areas. However nearest metro station was literally just around the corner.
We stayed here as a treat for my birthday and on arriving at the hotel and to the room it was very disappointing, the wall paper was very old and dirty and the room was very old fashioned, we managed to change rooms, the room looked cleaner although smaller, we slept well though apart from the arrival of a large group one early morning. I wouldn't rate this as a hotel with three star facilities as it says in the advert.
Don't expect too much
The rooms are small, walls are thin. Rooms could be cleaner. Breakfast buffet offers little choice (Bread and some cereals). Hotels is near to a metro station.
Okay hotel, perfect if you're travelling by car
We stayed for 3 nights. Contrary to the former poster, we slept well, without noises. We weren't on the 5th floor, so that probably makes a big difference. Our room was tiny, but okay. This hotel is perfect when you are travelling by car, that's probably its strongest point. It's very easy to find, just at the exit of the Paris ring road (peripherique) at Porte de Montreuil. And they have secure parking space in a small, private, underground car park. The hotel is in an average non-touristical neighbourhood, but the metro station is just around the corner. With the size of Paris, you'll have to travel by metro (underground) anyway, so that's no problem at all. Within a few minutes, you can reach every location you want (the metro system works great). If we'll travel by car, next time we visit Paris, we'll take Hotel Armstrong again. If not, we'll probably look for a hotel nearer to centre.
The room was okay. Bed was mushy, the walls thin but the worse was some machinery came on at 2:15AM and you can't get back to sleep. This happened repeatedly so if you want some sleep don't come here. The location is so-so but definitely near the metro so transportation is no problem but not near city center.

... but the lines stretched on and on and I felt it would spoil the moment. Instead we ordered a baguette (my French attempt was rewarded with a warm baguette) and then stopped in the marche for some Camembert cheese and salads, we then enjoyed a picnic dinner in the grass overlooking the Eiffel tour. It was what I had always dreamed of. Nic and I were both so happy to be there, at that very spot, enjoying some delicious French food and such a Parisian view. All around us locals ...
... the Musee D'Orsay and - what an impressive place this is. Firstly the interior of the building is wonderful but also there are many famous paintings which are very well displayed. We had lunch in the restaurant which is beautiful and washed lunch down with champagne.
We returned to our apartment to retrieve our bags and jumped into a taxi which took us to our new hotel (in Montparnasse) where we meet up with the tour group tonight for dinner and a ...
Well today is a new adventure for us. Off to Paris we go. Travelling on the Eurostar, defiantly a different experience. But a very good one. And we're finally in Paris. Wow is all I can say. We spent the day exploring around our place and the streets near by, and also discovering the champs-élysées was only a 15 minute walk from our penthouse. Wow wow wow wow. Walking the ...
... views and the people-watching. We went into the basilica, which was certainly impressive, but the best parts of Sacre Coeur were the serene crypt underground and the scenic dome high above ground. The views from the dome are incredible--all of Paris is spread out before you. We spent a while up there, basking in the vistas. After buying food from our neighborhood boulangerie and marche (the latter boasted a helpful grocery cat), we returned to our apartment ...
Woke early to leave at 745 for travel around Paris to see the sights with a local guide in the bus. Met Kevin at the Eiffel Tower at 930 to go up to the 2nd level. Tonight we took a cruise on the Seine river through Paris and got great pics of the Eiffel Tower and other attractions of the ...
