PARIS / Mama Shelter


Philippe Starck designed this boutique hotel located a little out of the way, in the 20th, but it has become the hip center of a rapidly up-and-coming area called SoPig (yes, that's really the nickname) -- Paris' answer to Nolita.   One of the forces majeurs behind the project is the Trigano family, best-known for turning the Club Med chain into a worldwide phenomenon. The Mama Shelter concept is a high-design and highly-affordable hotel that minimizes overhead while providing their guests everything they might need: iMacs in every room with integrated television, music and DVD controls, bathrooms with rain showers, heated towel racks, and Kiehl's products galore.  The beds are plush with super-soft sheets and the decor is cute without being annoying. 

The best part, however, is the rooftop patio.  Sadly though, the tiki-inspired terrace is available for private hire only ranging from 49€ -79€ per person for lunch and dinner, respectively.  It's a pretty good deal because with the price tag comes a three-course meal, 360 views of the city, and a whole lotta atmosphère.
