Hôtel Mama Shelter Review
Close to Père Lachaise in the up-and-coming 20th arrondissement, this large hotel has a fun and funky interior designed by Philippe Starck. Rooms are stylishly lighted, include their own kitchenettes, are stocked with Kiehl's toiletries, and boast flat-screen TVs and Wi-Fi access. Many also have huge balconies. Want to splurge? A 375-square-foot suite features its own terrace, a 27-inch computer, and a 54-inch LED TV. Don't expect an ounce of classical Parisian charm—the hotel is an experiment in quirky postmodern countercultural cool. The spacious restaurant-bar-lounge attracts an international mix of hip young people, who then head to the popular Fleche d'Or nightclub across the street.
