Phillippe Starck's Mama Shelter, Paris

In the historic Saint Blaise quartier, located in the heart of authentic Paris with its flower lined café terraces, its gardens and its air of rebellion, Mama Shelter welcomes you into their sweet abode, where guests from around the globe can enjoy an extravagant Parisian sojourn.

Between the artists’ studios, Père Lachasie, the Campagne à Paris and the winding cobblestone streets, you will feel the lingering spirit of Edith Piaf, Oscar Wilde, Jim Morrison and other great artists who together form a popular culture that is glamorized by the Mama Shelter interior.

Created by the Trigano family (co- founders of Club Med) and French philosopher Cyril Aouizerate, Mama Shelter was designed by Philippe Starck to offer an eclectic and electric ambiance thanks ?to its friendly, warm and casual common areas.

A restaurant with a simple and delicious cuisine to enjoy amongst friends, a “Chic-Chic” bar and lounge, a French brasserie and a cozy, romantic terrace where you will surely cross paths with American poets, Japanese painters or Latin American authors are just a few of the experiences you can expect to enjoy during your stay. And while there is a host of great hotel facilities that can be enjoyed by any number of guests, the rooms themselves are just as magnetic. Ranked in the order of Mama, Mama Luxe, Mama Deluxe, Mama Terrace and Mama Suites, the rooms all offer the basic necessities and more with a touch of grunge pop and youthful design. With funky embellishments, like a Mini Mouse phone to high quality elements like the satin sheets and Apple iMacs, all of the Mama rooms are sure to seduce.

In addition to the décor, Mama Shelter provides daily concerts and events, authentic French food served all day, Mama Pizzeria open Monday through Saturday and a concierge service that is equipped to tend to a guest’s every need.

Sensual and elegant rooms equipped with iMacs and 5 Star bedding offer you a serene retreat after a long day in the city and an evening across the street at the mythic Parisian temple of international live music, La Fleche d’Or.
