      Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Armstrong Paris

      Not Impressed


      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.

      No Sleep


      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.

      ... 8.50 euro each. We thoroughly enjoyed that. We headed to our departure gate. They changed our gate number about 30 minutes prior to boarding - you have to pay attention. In any case, our flight got away about 20 minutes late and we were headed for France. Thankfully no passport problems. It was a 3hr 15min flight so similar to flying from Australia to NZ. We got an ok meal on board – some vegetarian pasta dish. Our ...

      ... Sacre-Coeur Basilica. Then I walked around the arty district and on to the red light district, the home of the Moulin Rouge. From there I took the subway to the Eiffel tower. The lines were really long and my sister and I had been up the tower about 20 years ago so I decided to skip it. I watched the scammers in the park with their ball/shell game, watched a visiting Japanese band, and watched some Sri Lankan protesters.

      Me and Tamara visited Paris for 3 days and it was truly amazing. The city is so beautiful and full of history. It was our first trip to another country alone and I don't think we could have picked a better place. Some of my favorite things we did were:
      -Going to the top of the Eiffel Tower, because the view was breathtaking.
      -Going to the top of the Arc de Triomphe, because once again, the views of Paris were amazing and we ...
