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
Nicely located in the 8ieme, this relatively new small hotel is very cosy and convenient. The staff is friendly and the work atmosphere seems to be good. The bar with inner courtyard is a nice place to relax in the evening. Staff is very young so you have to accept some lack of experience.
Rooms are well equipped (also with free water and nespresso) but rather small with almost no space to open a large suitcase. The bed is good but not so long. Try to avoid a room on the street side because early morning there is some noise.
Breakfast is tasty but they give relatively small amounts of bread. You can ask extra though. We had tea with our breakfast and at the end asked a coffee as well. This coffee was to be paid though ... a bit disappointing.
Extremely charming, sleek but quiet oasis sandwiched between Champs and Fauborg d'Honore - the room is perfect, and the staff exceeded every expectation. Ofek in the bar is the best mixologist a Paris!
Second time we stay here; beautifully designed, all aspects are top quality. The key is natural and attentive service, makes it feel like a home away from home. looking forward to going back, definitely recommend
The beauty is in the attention to detail! Staff was excellent, even accommodating my daughter’s middle of the night quest for chocolate. Central location for walking to many Parisian highlights. Will definitely return to this well-appointed hotel.
This is the second time I stayed at Amastan but this time I felt compelled to share my experience because everything was once again so on point. Staff was adorable and attentive to everything about my stay. The restaurant reservations they had prepared following my requests in my online check-in (great little feature they added since my last stay) were so quaint and non-touristy, you can tell they really care about how you experience their city. And last but not least, the bar was very cool, a chilled vibe, great cocktails and awesome music. Everything feels so genuine at this hotel, it’s almost like your best friends owns a big house in the heart of Paris and you get to enjoy it for the weekend. Highly recommend it!
