I am told Marseille can be a very secretive city. That in order to find the coolest people, places and events you have to find that one person who will let you in on a secret that will lead you to all the exciting stuff.
If that really is the case, then here is an easy way to get a head start on all that, check into Mama Shelter!
Mama Shelter Marseille
Map to Mama Shelter
Mama Shelter’s unique architectural design on the edge of the Cours Julien neighborhood really adds to the allure of this area in the city. The hotel is obviously a gathering place for the art crowd… in fact any crowd and is very gay-friendly.
At Mama Shelter it seemed you could go a number of ways, two of them could be to all out party or, find a quiet space at the public computers in the lobby area to get some work done or both. I went for both.
Around us were people laughing and mingling, the DJ that night at the front of the restaurant was fantastic in her 50’s retro-style outfit playing eclectic yet familiar music from decades past that literally made people get up and dance on the spot. It all made for a great welcoming evening at Mama Shelter and it totally set the tone for the weekend ahead!
The lighted edge mirrors also seemed strategically placed on either side of the bed in my room, perfect for getting your look together and fun for all sorts on your own or with a friend.
I loved my stay at this boutique-style hotel; from beginning to end it was a complete experience. Mama Shelter will let you go out and play, but Mama Shelter will also keep you comfortable and cozy.
Do what your Mama says!
