There’s something that you need to know… I love Philippe Starck. I also love travelling. So when you put these two together, it just… well… you know what I mean.
So imagine my joy when I found out that I can now actually afford to check into a Philippe Starck-designed hotel, albeit just for a few days. Ladies and gents, I give you MAMA SHELTER.
Consisting of 172 rooms on 7 floors in 5 color schemes, Mama Shelter opened its eclectic doors on September of 2008. It is located in the heart of Paris, in the Saint Blaise quartier.
The hotel offers all the modern-day amenities a traveller can hope for– free wi-fi, hip common areas, services like babysitting, transportation and laundry, and 24-inch i-macs in all rooms.
To top it all off, a stay in Mama Shelter would mean you’ll get to be surrounded by Philippe Starck pieces. This might not appeal to some, but to a Starck fan like me, this is simply heavenly!
I can’t wait to check in. Now, the only problem is, when do I go back to Paris?:)
