Philippe Starck designed this amazing hotel to reflect the urban art scene of its location in Marseille, France. The French hotel Mama Shelter can be found at the intersection of three narrow streets where the three historic districts of Marseille meet.
This location places the Mama Shelter Hotel in Marseilles right in the city centre, near the Cours Julien district with its urban art vibe and mix of concert halls, young fashion designers and trendy terraces. The 127-room hotel is spread over six floors and rooms come with the option of five categories, colours and prices. The rooms are similar to those at the Mama Paris, but draw on new energy through the use of Mediterranean colours.
