... thus far. We went to a bakery and grabbed some pastries and a Nicholas bottle shop to get some wine. Got a bottle that the lady recommended we try for 16€ We then went back to the apartment and faced a disaster- our key wasn't working and we couldn't get in the door. We emailed Sylvain and he advised he would come help us. The next door neighbor tried and opened it first go. Oops. Think Sylvain was relieved we didn't try busting down the ...
... a spot of lunch, but he didn't think he could wait that long, and we ended up eating under an umbrella in the Tuileries Garden. I finally had my crepe - filled with mushroom and cheese, and Ron had a tuna sandwich - tricky, as it was actually in a French stick, not what we had expected, but delicious. I had been very nervous about my teeth after the very crisp roll I had yesterday.
Then, what did we come across, but those cars! I had convinced Ron to have ...
... I know everyone’s priority in Paris is to see the Eiffel Tower, but as it was cloudy on our first day we wanted to save it for sunset, and make it a daytime event the next day -one can never see the Eiffel Tower too many times in a visit to Paris, right? So we decided the first stop to be (drumroll please): the Louvre! PLOT TWIST: on our way up to the Louvre pyramid we unexpectedly saw the Eiffel Tower in the distance – it was one ...
... br> This city has a large number of underground tunnels and we took a tour of the tunnels. Again no photographs were allowed though some with mobile phones got away with taking plenty. These tunnels were used for storage and also as a place of refuge in times of war. Because of the large capacity for storing supplies the town withstood several sieges of lengthy durations. There are many water wells in the tunnels that don’t go right through to the ...
... harmony" but it is ironic that this was the place where thousands of royalists were beheaded by the Guillotine during the French revolution; the obelisk marks the spot where Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette were beheaded. The Egyptian obelisk which was gifted to the French in the 19th century marks the spot where the Guillotine used to stand.

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.
