As well as Mama Shelter preparing to open its debut hotel in Rome, more than decade since launch its first property, the hotel brand known for its quirky and playful design schemes is also planning on launching hotels in Lisbon, Paris, Bahrain and Dubai – all of which are slated to open this year. Here’s what we know…
Mama Shelter, the playful and quirky design hotel group which arrived onto the scene with its first hotel in Paris in 2008, is launching five new properties this year in Rome (July), Lisbon (November), a third in Paris (November), Bahrain and Dubai (both end of 2021). In true Mama Shelter hotel style, all properties will exude the philosophy of La Dolce Vita and offer an affordable collection of lively hotels – that are more than just rooms and restaurants – around the world.
Close to the famous Avenida da Liberdade, Mama Shelter Lisbon will shelter 130 rooms with an emphasis on comfort and authenticity with style and cutting-edge design elements by Mama’s Design Studio. Highlights include an all-day restaurant with its interior patio and the brick oven pizzeria for locals to take away Mama’s famous pizzas. A stunning rooftop will be open for guests to eat and drink whilst enjoying a bird’s-eye view of Lisbon and the Tagus.
Mama Shelter Roma will house 217 designer guestrooms, each providing comfort and relaxation after a day out exploring the Eternal Rity. Offering some respite from the endless attractions of Rome, the hotel will also feature the first ever Mama Baths. In keeping with the tradition of roman baths, this space will encompass a pool, sauna and Hammam room, which can be followed by a refreshing drink at the bar and relaxing in the chill zone.
Mama Shelter will be launching its third Parisian property in the La Défense neighbourhood, this time in the heart of the city’s busy finance district, welcoming business guests and locals alike. Taking residence across 14 floors in the former Litman Tower, highlights include two all-day restaurants, a sports bar, a coffee shop and an arcade room. A trademark rooftop will be available for guests to eat and drink with a remarkable view on all Paris and its monuments.
