For our brief stay in Marseille, France, we stayed at Mama Shelter – a small hotel chain that has additional locations in Paris, Lyon, Bourdeaux, Istanbul, and Los Angeles. What hooked me was the logo and, then, I saw their prices. An affordable hotel with a penchant for unique design and extremely clean rooms? Yes, please. This was truly a beautiful, high-tech and thoughtfully-designed hotel and I would recommend it again and again.
At Mama Shelter, they’re all about having a good time. In addition to the character masks, each room is also equipped with it’s very own apple display that acts as your in-room concierge, TV, camera for taking silly pics. We took a few photos wearing our masks that the hotel provided in each room. If you happen to follow them on instagram…you’ll see that everyone likes to partake.
Mama Shelter Marseille was also equipped with a outrageously decorated restaurant and bar located in the lobby. I loved the feature light fixture over the bar made from a long fluorescent bulb adorned with kiddie pool floats. Such a fun space.
Oh, and don’t forget the Mama Swag – towel + Mama Skin by Absolution and my shitty iPhone photos :)
