Mama Shelter

June 25, 2012 • ParisTravel

when i started thinking about appropriate hotels for the bachelorette party i co-organised, there were really only two contenders. i had had a lovely experience at hotel amour before, but they were fully booked (weeks in advance!) so we ended up at mama shelter. everything you’ve heard, everything you’ve read about the starck-designed hotel: believe the hype. it’s a super cool place, the service is very friendly, the restaurant downstairs is a sight to be seen (and experienced). i especially loved the kiehl’s amenities, campy lighting fixtures everywhere and the bizarro gift shop in the lobby.

just a small tip though: be careful to book a room on a high floor if you’re staying during the weekend – the bar gets really noisy and the rooms on the first two floors aren’t exactly soundproof.
