Philippe Starck strikes back

Ever visited Marseille? Time to do so. “Mama Shelter” hotel in Marseille is the second to open in France and is designed by Phillipe Starck.

The original concept of the hotel is what Starck describes as “the jeans of the hotel business” and combines humor with class. The visionary designer mixes patterns, textures and colors with urban art and proves that original style is never boring. Marseille’ s beauty is definitely incorporated in that intelligent design, where people are always the center of attention. With 127 rooms and prices starting at 69 euros, french hospitality is more affordable than ever.
