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 …
... you can take pictures too. The inside is beautiful full of stained class and chandeliers. What an amazing building it was, but I couldn't help but chuckle about the hunchback of Notre Dame in my head. From here we were headed to find Breizh Cafe-- What our research told us was the best crepes in the world. Now we had a map of the metro but this didn't include streets so I led us in the direction of where I had marked the restaurant to be. We ended up on the wrong ...
... that added memories was another guest walked into a young female wait staff carrying 3 level of trays that had 4 fully plated meals on each tray. The noise it made when it came crashing down was extremely loud with all 850 people in the theatre turning around and all conversations abruptly stopping. I felt for the poor girl and even got angry at the guest as he just stood there and shrugged his shoulders!!
This all happened before the show as everyone had to eat in the 2 ...

... on all sorts of great tidbits about Paris food. There are over 4000 individual kinds of cheese in this country, which is astounding...and I want to eat all of them! We chose five to buy (all of the food was included in the price of the tour) Then it was on to the boucherie to choose our sausage and fois gras terrine. We also got a beetroot salad..yum. Next stop was the patisserie for eclairs and rum cake for our dessert. We all walked back to the cooking school where we sat in ...

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.
