“Golf but coule be brillant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2013

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.

A clean hotel with small dark rooms and dark hallways. The bathroom was too small and the shower stall does not have a door on it. Every time we showered, the floor and toilet would end up wet. The beds were comfortable. It is too far away from most of the attractions thus making it too difficult to return to the hotel midday for a quick rest. There is a bus stop a block away (76 bus). It takes you to the Louvre. Wifi was good.

Wow this was a really special hotel where I spent two nights in fantastic company. So clean, arty and fast service. Really liked it a lot. The only thing is that it is a bit far away from attractions (if that is what youre looking for...) but for us it was perfect located next to the great Pere Lachaise.

The design is sharp and intreresting. Found new details all the time. The interior in the room is modern. Bathroom clean and warm.

At night the restaurant turns into a great bar with a lot of locals which was fun.

Going back? Yes with the same person I would go again...
