    This must be one the most over-rated hotels ever. If you happen to stay there on a Thursday, Friday or Saturday you will be kept up by their in house DJ and the people partying. We stayed in the 5th floor, and had even paid for their 19.- Euro upgrade, but we could hear the beats through the walls and the people smoking outside until at least 2:00 am. The personnel tried to be helpful, but they were so incompetent, that it was pathetic. So you either need very sound sleep, or the best earplugs, and even then.

    We wouldn't say we are hipster, but sure every now and then we don't mind being around that crowd. Mama Shelter Paris, is exactly that. No it isn't located in Le Marais or in an obvious part of town (located in 20th arrondissement), but for what you get many are willing to do the commute. From the time you make your reservation, it is difficult not to be impressed by the Mama slogan "Mama Loves You" which adds a nice element of fun and familiarity. You instantly feel like you are staying somewhere, where people truly care about you.

    Review for the restaurant, not the hotel.

    Had the Sunday buffet brunch (49 EUR pp) with two girlfriends and was suitably impressed by the wide selection of options and the classy and fun tongue in cheek decor.

    The restaurant is set on the ground floor of this very hip hotel (owned by Club Med, design by Philippe Starck) and I'm not sure what's it's like at lunch or dinner but the Sunday brunch seems to take over the entire lobby and lounge, couches included.

    This place tries to be the trendy American restaurant of Paris, and does a pretty damn good job at it. The restaurant is wide-open but feels like your in a basement, even though there are glass doors with a view to the outdoor seating. Food is amazing, the Charcuterie alone is worth the visit. Really really nice vibe and decor.

    We didnt stay in the hotel but this looks to be pretty great as well.

    A super trendy location. Has that New York feel to it. Electrifying buzz in the weekend.

The idea of having a club and a hotel in the same building might appeal to some folks out there, I generally book my hotel to get some sleep. At the rate these rooms go for, I expected much much better. Yeah the design is sort of nice, but it is much too pricey for what it is.
PS: We have stayed at the Lyon and Marseille Mama Shelter before and in both places had a much better experience. Apparently in Paris they don't need to make the extra effort to accommodate both party folks and sleepers.

The restaurant is set on the ground floor of this very hip hotel (owned by Club Med, design by Philippe Starck) and I'm not sure what's it's like at lunch or dinner but the Sunday brunch seems to take over the entire lobby and lounge, couches included.

We were impressed by the tasty fresh orange juice, the reasonably good bacon (tough to find in Paris) and tasty scrambled eggs (hard to pull off for a buffet). The brad was good, as well as the various baked goods, oh and the churros in a glass with a help-yourself mega jar of Nutella were pretty popular too!

Service was a little all over the place, although we had a nice waitress when we could get hold of her. I'd definitely some back to try dinner or a lazy lunch, it's worth the trek out to the 20th for the atmosphere and the lingering over good food.
