Highs + Lows

  • The history of Amour previously being a brothel is felt thought out the corridors and rooms. It has an air of naughty lingering in the walls. I like it.

  • Intimate hotel and every room has a different design. You’ll always feel special staying in one of Amours 24 rooms.

  • The courtyard and restaurant is in a classic Parisian brasserie style. You’ll adopt a french accent after the stay.

  • One of my favourite locations in Paris. With Rue Des Martyrs and Pigalle around the corner you’ve got entertainment for days.

  • Some nooks and crannies might smell like old cigarettes. But hey, just smells like history to me.
