A new Mama Shelter hotel opened by La Défense. Enjoying 211 bedrooms, 3 restaurants and a rooftop with breathtaking views on Paris, Mama Shelter La Défense has it all to delight travelers and Parisians!

It is at the outskirts of La Défense district, a few minute-walk from the Esplanade metro station, and therefore, near Paris by metro, that a new Mama Shelter hotel – the third in the city after the 20th and 15th arrondissements – opened earlier this year.

Covering 14 floors, Mama Shelter La Défense is part of the New York-inspired landscape of Paris business district. Scattered between floors, 211 soft and modern comfort bedrooms: great quality bedding to have a rejuvenating night, large walk-in shower and even organic solid cosmetics to take care of your skin and the earth at the same time!

But you shall also enjoy the outdoor views. While some bedrooms look on the neighboring buildings lit at night – a very lovely view – other bedrooms provide travelers with breathtaking panorama on Paris with the Eiffer Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, the Sacré Coeur, the Fondation Louis Vuitton, the Bois de Boulogne and the Tour Montparnasse. Views on Paris roofs only a few people know as they are usually reserved for people working in skyscrapers.

The lifts are very modern as well as they feature a small screen inside so you can select your floor and see how long it takes to get there; so is the lobby with wide windows making us want to go on a window-shopping spree: clothes and tableware by Mama Shelter, as well as pop culture items. Modernity contrasting with the vintage look of the arcade. No, this is not a dream, there is a genuine arcade on the first floor of Mama Shelter La Défense.

On the menu, two video arcade machines with dozens of vintage games! Calling all retrogaming fans, Sonic, Mortal Kombat and Taken are free of charge and available! So are 3 pinball machines – Star Wars, Guardians of the Galaxy and Stranger Things for those wondering about them – to make sure you will have fantastic game nights with your family and friends, like the huge foosball table for 8 to 10 players!

On the first floor of Mama Shelter La Défense – the one featuring the lobby, arcade and 6 meeting rooms you can rent – you can enjoy one of the hotel’s food spots: a sports bar with (many) TV screens around the circular bar and on the walls, airing live a soccer game or a basketball game. on the menu, finger and street food to enjoy while sipping some beer and betting.

On the ground floor, a second food spot inspired by American diners, serving American food classics such as burgers, fries, sundaes, and Caesar salads, in a retro setting covered in pink and light green hues. For sure we feel back in the 50’s!

But to discover the big surprise of Mama Shelter La Défense, you need to go to the last floor to enjoy the impressive views on Paris. As a matter of fact, it is on the 14th floor the hotel unveils a panoramic restaurant, brightly colored and with an electric spirit, as well as a small rooftop – secured with glasses if you happen to have vertigo!

On the menu, Asian-inspired dishes cooked by chef Pierre Chomet, as well as delightful signature cocktails we tell you more about in our review!
