Really appreciated our time here, the designer blows me away. Great place for couples, awesome service, buzzing atmosphere, great drinks and food. Don't forget to take pictures in your room to send round the hotel... It's pure different, right up my street!

No, not quite. Reception with friendly staff, check. Interesting, quirky souvenir shop in lobby, check. Very nice restaurant with good food and atmo, absolutely. Service in restaurant during day shift, top notch. Parisian grumpiness during night shift, count on it. Rooms? Dark, rather small with a dodgy carpet and tiny bathroom. Bring your own toiletries and stay away from rooms facing the street. All in all, well, never felt the love from Mama!

Room Tip: Opt for the rear, away from street.

Just spent 3 nights at the hotel and was really impressed with the decor, funky feel to the place and lovely staff. Downside are the very small room we had although booked deluxe and really, the appalling margarita they serve.
Food was good, breakfast excellent, atmosphere awesome ...and we will go there again but not for margaritas ! Shame

The Mama really is a hipster hotel. Still I enjoyed staying there very much - and I'm anything but a hipster.
The rooms are rather dark but it's all part of the design - and it works!
Try to get a room further back from the street. It can be a bit noisy at night. There is a night club accross the road.
We had pizza in the hotel restaurant one night and it was very good.
Apparently the restaurant's the place to be for a Sunday brunch feast. The place was packed!
There is a bus station just outside the hotel and since the next Métro station is about 15mins walk away this is a good alternative.
Even better though: there is a Vélib (bike hire station) accross the road.
Cycling in Paris is good fun. Try it!

If you want to find a very good hotel in Paris, that's the place to be!
Very nice restaurant, wonderful breakfast with all the best french food that you can expect.
My place when I go to Paris, like home.
The rooms are relaxing, good bed, free tv channels, bathroom not too big but enough for a week stay,
the staff is always at your service, decoration by starck is surprising but you get used to it and start to like it, in the room some furniture are funny but not very easy to use (lights!);
animation in the hotel on saturdays are good with DJ,
the area is full of bars and restaurant, very young customers, very animated on the weekends.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here - really liked it. The décor was quirky with black being quite dominant. The staff were lovely and rooms were clean and well equipped. Admittedly it is a bit far from the main centre of Paris but if that doesn't bother you then it is a great place to stay. As a coeliac I'm always a bit reluctant to book a breakfast in a hotel where it is an added extra, but I was pleasantly surprised here as there were plenty of good non-gluten options available to eat. The earl grey tea here was one of the best I've ever tasted! Would definitely return.
