Mama Shelter

Mama loves you.

Sassy & Flamboyant

Mama Shelter started in 2008 in Paris as a concept developed by Serge Trigano and his two sons, Jérémie and Benjamin. Mama Shelter is a place to live life to the full: it's affordable, irreverent, popular, sassy, and sexy. A haven that Mama has created for her guests. Much like a mother who cares for her children, Mama looks after travellers as if they were her own.

In every Mama you'll find exuberant interior decoration, homemade, high-quality menus and year-round happenings. Over the years, Mama Shelter has partnered with key names from the world of interiors for its unique yet easily recognisable properties around the world. The graffiti ceiling (by French artist Beniloys), the graphic carpet, the comfy armchairs and the singular ornaments that fill the bookshelves all echo an aspect of Mama’s personality. Cartoon masks used as lampshades remind guests that Mama doesn’t take things too seriously, whilst plush sofas immerse you in a world of comfort.

Mama Shelter’s hotels span 9 countries and 14 lively cities – from Los Angeles to London, Belgrade to Paris. Great cocktail menus. Homemade food. DJ sets. Smiling staff. All ages welcome. So come to Mama!

Just like a family home, the restaurant is the beating heart of the Mama: it's a place to meet people, share a meal, enjoy events. This is where locals and travellers alike bring the city spirit to Mama - same goes for our lively terraces and rooftops. The menus and homemade meals at Mama have made an international name for themselves: signature dishes can be found in different Mamas around the world; the Mama brunch has become an iconic weekend occasion; and dishes like Mama’s Macaroni are longstanding favourites.
