If this is your first time visit to Paris, you might want to find a more conveniently located place. However, if you are a regular, Mama Shelter really is a fun and lively place to stay. Rooms, as in most of Paris, are tiny though provide a lovely break from the classically furnished hotels elsewhere. The hotel bar is the... More

So firstly, no, the hotel's not conveniently located but what it lacks in transport links (buses heading towards the Louvre do stop just outside the hotel - it's just the Metro's a tad difficult to get to) Mama Shelter more than makes up for in charisma and wit - if interiors can have such a thing. From the reception with... More

I always stay at Mama Shelter when visiting Paris. Rooms are always clean and beds comfortable. Not the best location in Paris but there us the bus and a metro station at 1n walk. It is the best place to experience Parisian lifestyle with nearby bakeries and bistrots.

Browsing luxury, boutique, glampy, campy, and unusual hotels online is a hobby. Rarely do I get to stay in one of my favs. Mama Shelter was the first time I got to do so, and I wasn't disappointed. The rooms are darker and smaller than I anticipated, but it was just right for me and my travel homie. We didn't... More

Have just spent 2 nights here, and can't recommend it highly enough. Yeah, it's fairly dark inside, but that's the whole point of the hotel. It's all about the design/experience, which really appealed to us! Food was phenomenal and we definitely suggest including breakfast in your booking, which is worth every cent! Love the whole entertainment system in the bedroom,... More

We decided to stay in Mama Shelter because the price seemed reasonable, the location convenient. The overall experience was not bad at all: the room and bathroom were clean, the staff was very friendly and helpful, continental breakfast was good and included real fresh orange juice. But The restaurant/cafeteria is very dark & the room is really dark too: black... More

it's definitely the hotel to enjoy the best vibe in paris! cool crowd! rooms are small but perfectly design, on a minimal style. Starck is a genius to bring exactly what you need for a young and hip hotel. Love the pizzeria, and the daily update on each floor about cool parisian events. Great beddings and pillows. the place to... More

My work colleague recommended this hotel and we weren't disappointed. We arrived on Friday morning and the room was already ready. The room was clean and big enough for two, however it was on the first floor, just above the bar. It's a very busy place during weekend with loud music so we had problems with sleeping. The hotel location... More

We stayed here in May and were so pleased we did. Having previously stayed in another 'designer' hotel in Paris (The Kube) we were slightly dubious but I'm pleased to say it was the exact opposite. The staff in all areas of the hotel were super friendly. Rooms were on the small size but were fit for purpose. The curtains... More
