Mama Shelter

i want a mama


The world moves, travellers move with it.

With fewer holidays and more travel for work, we want something more meaningful than cookie-cutter convenience. We want the texture and flavors of new cities, but with the intimacy and relaxed atmosphere of home. And working travellers don’t want to arrive at another anonymous and impersonal hotel, while their companies tire of the exorbitant rates. The old standards have been disrupted all around us, especially the way we travel.

Based on these observations, Serge, Benjamin, and Jérémie Trigano (the family that co-founded Club Med in the 1950s) created MAMA SHELTER.

The first MAMA opened in 2008 with an eye toward culture, the most modern of technologies and access in all her rooms, and the kind of care only your MAMA can provide, all affordably. Though exquisitely designed and with a high-quality of standards, it is MAMA’s comfort from her rooms, warm restaurant and knowledgeable staff that make her special. Both comfy and lively, MAMA SHELTER birthed a fresh way to host the modern traveller, a new point of reference for an industry finding its way in a changing world.

After Paris, MAMA SHELTER opened in Marseille, Lyon, Bordeaux, Los Angeles and Rio de Janeiro, and is soon coming to Prague, Toulouse, Lille, Paris Porte de Versailles, Belgrade and Bangkok by 2019.

In 2014, AccorHotels joined the MAMA SHELTER family, bringing with it the support to help us flourish. A young and modern brand nimbly responding to the needs of 21st century travellers allied to Europe’s biggest and most experienced hotelier.

MAMA SHELTER sees opportunities to provide its unique vision of hospitality to new cities around the world and can act as a tenant or with a management contract all based on strict specifications.
