Mama Shelter Hotel Aims for Affordable Design Experience
* * *
Booking a room here will cost as little as 79 euros per night. Its 172 rooms come in different sizes and shapes - 5 color schemes, from 15 to 35 sq/m (49 to 114 sq/f), but always include a mini-kitchenette, a shower and a 24-inch iMac that doubles as a video rental box. There's a large terrace over old railroad tracks for those in need of fresh Parisian air or a cigarette.
Besides Starck, the team behind this hotel includes the Trigano family (Serge, Jérémie and Benjamin), Roland Castro (architecture) and Cyril Aouizerate (philosophy)...We cannot help but noticing that job prospects for French philosophers just keep on getting better...
