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
Small rooms but well designed so it was comfortable. Nice little touches like umbrella and Sachajuan amenities as well as bathrobes. The balcony is nice after long day of sightseeing and shopping.
Reception was very helpful during check-in and checkout.
It is rare to find an hotel where the staff just can’t do enough to make your stay perfect !
There is a small boutique hotel with a family feel. Directions, extra pillows, dinner recommandations, reservations, taxis, early check in,it was all taken care of personally by whom ever we asked with never any issues. We will definitely stay here again !
I wanted to leave the minute I got there but it was booked via work and non-refundable. I was so upset by this. Worse 2+ weeks I’ve ever spent in Paris.
1. Location is fantastic if you need to be in the 8th. Far enough away from the Champs not to be too noisy and not many clubs close by
2. Very polite front desk staff who try their best
3. Free Evian in the room (I’m being polite and trying to find more goods here!)
The not so good:
1. Very, VERY small and tight rooms. My first so called room was shocking. I had neither the space to open my suitcase properly or indeed a cupboard!!! 😟
2. Even when they ‘upgraded’ me I had a tiny cupboard and just about enough space on the floor beside the window to open my case but nowhere to keep it without tripping over it!
3. They don’t clean your sheets everyday, or even every other day! NO I’M NOT JOKING. I spilt some food on the sheets. Why was I eating in bed? Simple, because there’s NOWHERE ELSE YOU CAN EAT! 😨 The stain stayed there until I left, which was a week later.
4. There’s no room service in the hotel. If you wanna eat in, you’ll need to order from Uber Eats or the like. But I suppose it’s nice of them to put it on a tray for you. 😕
There are MANY hotel options in the 8th, including one about two doors down from the Amastan. Do yourselves a favour and pick any hotel but this one...unless perhaps they slash their prices by 50% which would be more reflective of the experience you would expect for the price!
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
