    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Armstrong Paris

    Not Impressed

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    Disappointing

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    No Sleep

    from

    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.

    ... we made for Bergerac only 23 kms from Casti but quite different. It is a lovely drive through orchard (plums) country and lots of vineyards as you get closer. No problem finding parking in town near the tourist office. Of course, our first order of business is lunch. Turns out a great one can be had very nearby at "La Pataterie" which offers potatoes in every possible jacket as ...

    We left our hotel at 10.30 am this morning to meet the folks. We were a little unsure of what to do for the day...so we just started walking. First stop....coffee haha. Then of course by the time we finished that it was time to head to Cafe Oz for the All Blacks game. We got a good cozzie and stayed there for the game. Unfortunately it wasn't a wicked game haha, it was very close! And the Aussies showed that they will be more of a challenge this ...

    ... if in Paris. We were taught early on how to thrust your palm out at the temperamental French drivers to get them to stop and it worked surprisingly well. Over about 4 hours we rode around most of the important sites in Paris and it was an awesome way to get your bearings. Earlier that morning we had the first of our runs together and got completely drenched in the lovely summery weather that was very reminiscent of an April London day. It seems that standard fare ...

    ... midday. We had two days of centre court tickets. We didn't realise thought that we weren't able to go into any of the other show courts like we were at the US Open. We could only go into Centre Court and to courts 4-18. So we missed watching Nadal play as well and had to settle for Novak. We left at about 7:30pm so we could get home at a decent hour and because they would have been calling a holt on the game soon anyway seeing as they don't have any lights for night games. It ...

    ... Luxemburg Gardens.

    No wonder Jardin de Luxemburg is so beloved by the french. The people here epitomize the joie de vivre that the french have. Couples and families sat on the green metal chairs - reading, drinking wine, socializing. Children pushed sailboats around the fountain. People laid out on the grass having picnics. We sat on the grass and watched the people. Rhea was dying to play with some children beside us and ...
