What We Love
- The plethora of details that make the space feel particularly homey, including full-size – not mini! – toiletries from Swedish brand Sachajuan
- The long, Carrara marble tables at Anouk, the hotel’s café-cum-bar, are the ideal place to get work done with an espresso during the day, and then meet a friend for a drink when the sun sets
- The small oasis garden, with its jasmine-laced walls, is home to over thirty different species of plants
- The hotel hosts the first space in Paris fully dedicated to pop-up installations. Called Pop-In, you’ll find a roster of ever-changing residents like London-based jewelry brand URiBE

The debut flagship property from Amastan sets a high bar, with interiors by French design studio NOCC that feel more like the house of your chicest friend than a hotel. Public spaces exude an effortless cool and feature fabulous details like the bespoke tapestry by Jan Kath that covers one wall, brass industrial-chic lights that drop from the ceiling, and floors of herringbone parquet in a striking blue. Meanwhile, 24 guest rooms are spread out over six floors, with bright white walls set off by custom walnut furniture and marble-tiled bathrooms, shelves above Treca beds stocked with leather-bound books, and, in some, private balconies. In the evenings, the bar draws a trendy crowd and does a good range of cocktails made with craft spirits, like the cherry and goji berry-infused gin.
In the Area
Paris’s tony eighth arrondissement is the ideal location for tourists – it’s centrally located, studded with small streets and stunning architecture, and is especially perfect for those looking to explore the Paris classics. The hotel is just around the corner from the Champs-Elysées, a few minutes from the chic shops of Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, and a ten-minute walk to the Arc de Triomphe. Museums like the Grand Palais and Petit Palais, plus outdoors spaces like the Place de la Concorde, Parc Monceau, and the Tuileries Gardens, are also within walking distance. The streets near the hotel are home to plenty of off-the-radar bars and restaurants; ask the knowledgeable staff for tips.
How to Get There
Booked this hotel for a weekend in Paris, payed extra 50 euro for a room with balcony. When I arrived the balcony door was broken and wouldn't open. I asked the reception lady to solve the issue. When I came back to the hotel room late in the evening, the balcony door was still broken. The staff of the hotel said: "We called the technician but he still hasn't come/ Why do you want to use the balcony so badly, the weather is so cold". I was really angry with them but didn't want to spoil the vacation by arguing more. I asked if they could give us a different room, they showed me one which was much smaller. While we were talking about the balcony problem, and old French lady came up to the reception and said her bathroom didn't have hot water. Speaking of bathrooms - our bathroom and toilet had a glass door =) which is a bit funny and the shower curtain was too short to close it. The soundproofing was terrible as well. If you have a room facing the street, be prepared for lots of noise, especially during the night and early morning. The room does have a coffee machine but doesn't have an electric kettle. So if you want to have some hot water or tea - you cannot have it.
In the end - the balcony door remained broken and the balcony closed during my entire stay. I didn't have any refund from the hotel for this inconvenience. I would never stay in this hotel again and would strongly recommend you avoid them too.
While been there for a few times . This small boutique hotel near the Champs Elysées is a true jewel.
All the details in the room and the unusual breakfast are great.
Also the products in the room from Sacha Juan was a real discovery
The location is superb, centrally located and easily walkable to all the usual tourist spots and a host of excellent dining opportunities, but what really stands out about Amastan is the hotel staff. They are extremely welcoming, attentive and helpful with any questions we had. They recommended places for us to eat. They made reservations for us. They even went so far as to reach out to health care practitioners for me when I needed, setting up appointments whilst we were wandering the city. The rooms, although on the smaller side, are impeccably clean. We stayed on the fifth floor and had access to a small balcony overlooking the street. There is also a great little courtyard that soon became our starting point each morning with coffee, and again for wine before heading out for the evening. This is a small, artsy hotel that you can tell puts a lot of effort into pleasing their clientele. We will definitely stay with them again the next time we are in Paris. Highly recommend!
Truly memorable stay at the Amastan Paris. Went there to celebrate NYE as it was a lifelong dream to spend NYE in Paris. Max was so welcoming upon arrival and made sure we knew just where to go (dining options) during our stay. Rooms were rather small but hey, we were staying in Paris after all. Thank you Roman for booking the Disneyland passes for us in advance. We will definitely be coming back in the near future!
I have never slept better in a hotel room - the bed is so cosy an comfortable! The products in the bathroom are amazing and the room has very good facilities allover. The hotel is very clean and it smells so good everywhere. I love the bar and the delicious breakfast - and also to see my name on the breakfast menu :)! The staff is so attentive and everyone I met in the hotel was so friendly and always ready for a little chat - which I love. The location of the hotel is really fabulous - we reached so many things by foot and in a couple of minutes. Everything at AMASTAN felt so warm and joyful and I will definitely come back and recommend this hotel to everyone!
