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.
