1. The tip is apparently not included. According to my new friend Luzan, the VAT which means that all taxes are included means exactly that- the taxes are included. This doesn't actually mean that the tip is included. Fortunately I have not eaten anywhere that would require a tip. Should I feign ignorance when it comes to this? Hmm...maybe not, I …
... at bus stops and the busesdidn’t got the way we wanted, I couldn’t see any taxis, so great we are lost in Paris. Well it’s a great way to see some sights. So we are lost, and what better way to be lost but to be lost and it starts raining. Em & I didn’t bring our umbrellas today. Thinking that we are never going to get to the Eiffel Tower I see a Taxi across a intersection and in Paris ...
... and I head for the equally impressive Gallerie La Fayette, (7 storey department store) Goz and Paul head for Avenue Des Champs Elysees and a hike around the city!! Then back to have a closer look around Notre Dame, unfortunately our run of good weather has deserted us and we all get soaked to the skin so back to the hotel for a bit of drying out and a rest before our next ...
... insight into one aspect of why perhaps the French people overthrew their monarchy. Nice lunch rooms provided. Our had a microwave, so we helped our selves. So we can now say say we had a hot lunch at a Palace. Did better here than in England. After lunch we hit the palace gardens. Beautifully manicured, exquistely designed. Unfortunately looked a little down cast as it's winter and some of the statues were ...
... on and I braved the street to shop. Pomme de terre (school french), wine from my man in the wine place and madeleines for Jan's arvo tea. The street was in Saturday arvo mode and festive. A gathering up late afternoon and evening beside the open windows to our shared courtyard, planning, writing, packing, cooking ... and stuff. Playing Coleman Hawkins and Joe Pass on the very handy iPod player. Jazz somehow seems right for Paris. A very lovely ...

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- 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.
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.
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.
