Historical Traveler Reviews The Silver Star Bed and Breakfast Country Inn Spring Green
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.

... m lonely. I wish I had someone else here to travel with. It seems like all the other women are in pairs and having that other person to commiserate with, laugh with, and talk to would be really nice right now.
I’m really struggling with my self-confidence now that there is this language barrier. I can’t even converse with my fellow hostel mates. I feel like every time I go somewhere I am an annoyance or a burden. As someone who has always been a people ...
... Our final day in Paris had been earmarked for getting our hair done. Yes, that's right, "our" hair. Simone arranged with the concierge to make appointments at the salon down the street (remembering where we were staying, so what "down the street" meant!) and I somewhat apprehensively approached the first haircut in 17 years where I didn't just say "short back and sides, number 2 clippers". Simone had a great time at the salon, after abandoning me from the outset to go ...
... There was a pastry store that looked so FRENCH and intriguing (mainly because there was a LINE of people waiting to get in) that we had to check it out--and saw a rainbow of macaroons! At the end of Champs-Elysee was the Arc de Triomphe, which the people of Paris cleverly surrounded by a roundabout with heavy traffic so you had to go under a tunnel to get to it (and pay the fee to go up). Afterwards, ...
... minute wait times everywhere. Main Street Christmas Parade was short but good especially cause we see Mickey again. Late afternoon after more rides and Mickey shopping, we head over to Disney Studios for a look. We got on the Back Lot Tram and enjoyed some fantastic special effects along the way. Wow Rob came on rides I never thought he would, roller-coasters and the Tower of Terror (Giant Drop). It was so much fun. We had to ...
... get back across town to our apartment. We are only 100m from a metro station (Parmentier) which is great. We bought a 5 day rail pass so we can really explore.
Mikaela is getting really good at reading metro maps and working out lines and where we need to change. We are just working out our trip to Disneyland tomorrow as we want a sleep in. It opens at 10 and closes at 10.
Glad people are enjoying our ...
