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
The staff here are lovely and welcoming, Walid in particular is often on the night shift and a great welcomer and friendly greeter at the end of a long day. The rooms and amenities are clean, modern and fresh, and the small bar well stocked. Breakfast is simple but satisfying, and the personalised menus are a lovely touch. Some rooms face the street, but they are still very quiet, and the beds very comfortable. As a frequent visitor, I know I can reliably get a good nights sleep here. The hotel is very handy to the Champs Elysee, and several metro stations, and is a good base for both work and pleasure.
I have stayed at Hotel Amastan twice and had wonderful experiences each time. Walid and the rest of the staff are gracious and always happy to provide a restaurant recommendation. Additionally, the location can’t be beat!
I've been in the bar of this hotel yesterday night with some friends. The location is wonderful, it is a quite place and there is a fantastic garden in which you can share beautiful moments with your friends in front of a drink. The staff was amazing, Mehdi (the barman) was really friendly and professional, as all the rest of the team. I will come back without any doubt and I highly recommend to go. Thank you!
