      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 had a quick visit to the Lafayette Galleries, where we learnt that 685 euro shoes looked cool, but were not practical, at least if you have children.

      That night we got the kids sorted with food and left them in their hotel room to play iPad/DS/TV. We went to a dinner and cabaret show which was amazing. This was our ...

We had a very pleasant detour down a lovely avenue, tree lined with a large grassed area in the middle, lots of children singing, playing games, kicking balls & riding bikes & ...

      We continued wandering until we reached the Jardiniere des Tuileries, where the Orangerie Gallery is, with beautiful exhibits of some of Monet's Water lilies series.On the ground level were more artists works, including Cezanne. It always seems surreal to be looking at the original ...

      ... journey of self discovery in that city often. The rhythm of life in both cities suits me, and makes me feel part of something bigger. I've missed that feeling. I didn't realize how much. Being able to walk wherever you want to go, or hop on the Metro and discover a whole new universe minutes away are things that just don't exist in Phoenix. Also being surrounded by people. All sorts of people. Speaking French, Spanish, Hindi, German, English... the mix of backgrounds, ...

      Paris: Random notes about traveling

      ... don't really like impressionist painting anyways, so I decided to skip it. Maybe I'll get back to it today or tomorrow morning (unlikely). Advice for people coming to Paris: come over the first Sunday of the month. Everything is free on the first Sunday of the month. Or come when you're a student between the ages of 18-25. Everything's cheaper then too, especially if you're studying abroad.

      This morning (Saturday) I'm ...
