I’ve spent the last few days in Paris with my boyfriend. The city was – as ever – thrilling and marvelous. But this time, it was definitely our hotel, Mama Shelter, that made the stay even better. Mama Shelter is located outside the centre of Paris. That might not be very convenient for first time tourists (who want to see it all quickly) but it’s quite nice for people who have been to Paris several times and aren’t interested in the very touristic stuff anymore. As we belonged to the last group, we didn’t visit the Basilique Sacré Coeur or the Eiffel tower, we mainly focused on discovering a different side of Paris and we visited the large cemetery of Père Lachaise (very close to Mama Shelter) and had a stop at the business district La Défense.
Mama Shelter might not be in the very centre of Paris but it’s an amazingly cool hotel to stay: every detail works, it’s incredible! Below you’ll find pictures of the hotel: reception, our room, restaurant, bar,.. with more information.
So, if you’re looking for a trendy and daring hotel in Paris and you don’t mind taking the metro to go to the centre, this is the place to be for you!
A little desk and a very handy and hip Apple televison. I’m quite sure I need one now!
Key card holder.
A simple bathroom with large shower and a fresh flower as a nice detail.
The quirky reception with logs as seats and a painted ceiling.
The pizzeria, one of the two restaurants. I especially like these long tables and the mix of lamps.
The actual bar. In the mornings this holds the breakfast buffet.
A small podium is integrated in the bar.
Quirky and comfy chairs.
Mama Shelter has hotels in Paris, Bordeaux, Marseille, Istanbul and Lyon. Find more information here.
