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.

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.

Mama Shelter is expected to bringing its playful hotel brand to Luxembourg in May of this year. Before the wild opening, Hotel Designs got a sneak peek inside… 

Hot off the heels of opening another hotel in Paris, Mama Shelter is expected to touchdown in Luxembourg this May, opening the brand’s 13th hotel since coming to the market in 2008.

Sheltering 145 design-led rooms, Mama Luxembourg will continue its commitment to providing its affordable boutique hotel offering to the Grand Duchy. In keeping with the brand’s playful philosophy, Mama Luxembourg interprets the spirit of its location through its bespoke design, while also offering guests a well-priced option from which to explore the city.

An important financial hub, with links to neighbouring France, Germany and Belgium, Luxembourg is also home to several European Union institutions. Mama Works will offer local professionals and business travellers the flexibility to work from its new co-working space, offering individual working spaces and shared desks. There is also a ‘CineMama’, an intimate space with seating for up to 31 people which can also be used for presentations and screenings.

Mama Shelter’s instantly recognisable style continues throughout its new property. Taking inspiration from the region’s rich history, the ceilings are adorned with one-of-a-kind graffiti by renowned French artist – Beniloys – and each room has been individually designed by its dedicated in-house design team.

“Luxembourg is as beautiful as it is cosmopolitan,” said Jérémie Trigano, CEO of Mama Shelter. “We knew that combining these features with MAMA’s fun personality meant we would get a truly explosive result.”

Mama Luxembourg bridges the gap between the chic style of boutique hotels and openness of Mama’s playful philosophy. This unique DNA creates the perfect home-away-from-home for travellers and local professionals.

“Luxembourg is largely known as a financial hub,” added Serge Trigano, president of Mama Shelter. “The Mama group wants to contribute actively to the discovery of the country’s culture, its landscapes and its castles. Bankers or teams from great financial institutions as well as Luxembourgers will always be most welcome and free to visit the Mama whenever they wish, to shed their suits and enjoy a meal or a cocktail in our restaurant or on our rooftop.”

The Mama Shelter journey started in 2008 with the launch of Mama Paris East. Founded by the Trigano family – co-Founder of Club Med – and world-renowned designer Philippe Starck, Mama Shelter believed in launching in lesser-known, ‘out of the way’ neighbourhoods in iconic cities, allowing guests to uncover new and exciting cities. The founding Paris property was followed by Marseille to Lyon, Bordeaux, Los Angeles, Rio de Janeiro, Prague, Belgrade, Toulouse, London, Paris West and Luxembourg. Upcoming openings include Bucharest, Bahrain, Dubai, Santiago de Chile, Rome, Lisbon and many more. In 2014, the international hotel chain, Accor, partnered with Mama Shelter to develop the concept and welcome travellers and locals throughout the world.

As with all of Mama Shelter properties, Mama Luxembourg aims to be a confluence for visitors and locals alike, providing a witty and welcoming ‘home’ in the city.
