Hotel Amour, Paris

Walk into Hotel Amour and you’ll think you’re in the wrong place, in the heart of a restaurant with a chill vibe and great buzz. Turn right and you’re at the front desk that feels more like a hostess stand than a reception center. Check in and you’ll disappear around the corner through a discrete door that takes you next door and upstairs to the series of 24 rooms behind the facade of a typical Parisian apartment building. Reminiscent of the Ace Hotels in the US, this independent hotel brings together decor that ties together vintage classics with a modern sophisticated feel, but where each room takes on a flavor of its own. Designed by various names in the French design scene the painted walls and unexpected color palettes matched with crisp white bedspreads keep the understated simplicity without losing a drop of style. The duplex room I visited was encompassed by untraditional black walls, and felt like a stylish city loft despite its first floor location. Perhaps even more appealing than the inviting interiors is the price tag that is friendlier than most in Paris. Via Designtripper.
