Quirky hotel with great service and a great atmosphere. Nice somewhat unusual training room and environment. Fantastic food (though a lot of wastage). Bedroom a little dark - a master light would be useful to override the lamps occasionally.

Great decor and cool spin of the hospitality concept with a refreshing and humorous approach. Service is relaxed and friendly, but it could be a bit more efficient. I have not tried the restaurants and unfortunately the rooftop bar was closed... it would be great to heat it up in winter like the majority of sidewalk bistros in the city....

We visited the pizzeria after a recommendation from a local - we were not disappointed! The menu is fairly small for pizzas and nit many starters to choose from - however the pizzas were excellent and great value for money. After we had dinner, we moved over to the bar which was part of the main restaurant - we sat...

I am travelling to Paris for business trip so I decided to arrive 2 days earlier to see Paris. I booked my accommodation here in Mama Shelter as this is where our group is booked anyway. The service upon check-in was good, nothing exemplary. The accommodation itself is really pricey for it's location. The room size is decent and the...

This is the 2nd time we have stayed at Mama Shelter and the situation was the same both times. The rooms are clean, comfortable and fun and the reception staff are welcoming, friendly and full of smiles but that is where it ends. Walk into the restaurant/bar area and try to get served, it is an effort just to get...

Nice enterior design, interesting souvenir shop, god breakfast, hot room. Even if you can feel there like in a gallery thanks to the design by Starck, don't spend the day in your room. Excellent place to stay!

The hotel is known to be very trendy and fun, which I would say is true but if you're going to a hotel to relax this is really not the best place to go. I had a hard time finding an electrical outlet for my phone, there are no lights on the ceiling, so the rooms can be very dark....

When visiting Paris for business, I always try and stay with Mama. So cool, friendly, trendy, with beds to die for and extras that make you wonder what the Parisians get up to behind closed doors. My only criticism would be about the irons. Typical hotel, you need to look fresh for the following day but as always the irons...

Mama Shelter in Paris is the place everyone talks about. Trendy, Cosy, Comfy, " It is not about staying but about Living" says Trigano. Very nice graphic ambiance, Professionnal service for Food and sleeping, Honest pricing. I noticed the very friendly Free Video on demand service, including Porn (if you need). The only remark points to the location: very far...
