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.

... we'd better keep moving to Paris. Lyon looks far too deep and rich to attempt to see sights in a few hours - we'll be back!
Back on the road I was pondering how I'll adjust back to Sydney life, here speed limits are less critical funding source and more minimum expectation. Though I had noticed a pattern of mostly foreign plates screaming ahead the fastest. In Italy the GPS told me where ...
... back to the train station, I had to wait in a relatively long line to use a ticket machine. The wait was exacerbated by people who didn't have coins or cards with chips (cash and cards that only swipe are not accepted by the machines. I think you have to go to a desk to use those.) The train to the airport was crammed full. Even at the airport, the lines were long and I was glad that I already had my boarding pass. Lesson learned- check for holidays before you go some place.
... in the U.S.of A) ... I'm astounded by the prolonged violent & torturous nature of the past 1500 years!!!! I would've loved to have spent more time wandering through the museums & Art galleries but this trip is not for that... After 3 days, off to ...

There is a christmas market along the Champs-Élysées so we walk along and check it out. Min has some Vin Chaud or warmed from one of the stands. We end up at the pretty close to the Eiffel and even though we have tickets for the Eiffel Tower on Thursday, Min couldn't resist shooting ...

We got home and I realised that without an adapter I couldn't only not charge my stuff but I also couldn't straighten my hair!! :( so we got ready quickly and headed out. We got off the train and a station called the lourve-rivoli and figured we would be able to find the lourve easy from there! We were wrong. We walked around for 30 minutes not finding anything, all the shops were closed so no clothes ...
