Mama Shelter

64 rue de la Loubière, Marseille, 13006, France

Manufacturing hip is this urban chain hotel's claim to fame (no wonder, as it's the brainchild of designer Philippe Starck). They've got the formula down pat: offbeat (preferably artsy) neighborhood, check; plenty of graffiti in the interior design, check; functional, minimalist rooms, check; sexy touches, check. For in-hotel nightlife, with its cool pastis bar, local artisanal beer, and great live music on weekends, it's a good bet.

PROS

  • breakfasts can't be beat
  • friendly service
  • cool vibe

CONS

  • not always a bargain
  • not to everyone's taste
  • iffy neighborhood
