The Tregano family have done it again, as they continue to offer a unique experience in each corner of Paris. We’re delighted we finally got a chance to stay at their Paris West location.
The founders behind Club Med continue to pay homage to each of their locations, with their Paris West spot offering avid travellers a chance to explore the tranquillity of the neighbourhood and feel like a true Parisian, away from the discerning crowds and tourist traps.
When visiting the city of lights, most explorers stay in familiar areas with monuments and luxury stores - but what about exploring the real Paris?
Mama Shelter West is a trendy and stylish hotel located in the 15th arrondissement of the city - it may seem unconventional, but there is more to Paris than the Louvre. The area is home to over forty picturesque parks, gardens, squares and boulevards; for example, Parc Georges-Brassens (named after the French musician and poet) is perfect for romantic strolls with your beau.
The hotel is also very close to the Porte de Versailles Exhibition Centre, where a host of exciting events take place throughout the year.
If you're seeking a sexy weekend in the city, you won't be disappointed; Paris West's unique and playful atmosphere is perfect for couples or solo travellers looking for an injection of fun and a memorable stay.
With architecture by Jean-Michel Wilmotte (known for projects such as Hotel Cheval Blanc in St Tropez and Mandarin Oriental Paris) and interiors by Dion & Arles (The Standard London), the lobby is a lively yet discreet blend of privacy, but with excitement at your fingertips.
Design and interiors are eclectic, with an unintentional blend of concepts. For example, you'll see a mix of bold-pattern vibrant carpets with retro booths and Mama's signature graffiti ceiling.
There are 207 rooms, and each is designed to be comfortable and stylish, with playful touches including quirky wallpaper and colourful accents. The beds are also incredibly comfortable, making it easy to relax and unwind after a long day of exploring the city.
For added heat, our room had a surprise gift box, but if we told you what was in it, we would have to kill you!
In addition to the stylish rooms, Paris West has a fantastic restaurant and bar where you can enjoy delicious food and drinks in a fun and lively atmosphere. The hotel's rooftop terrace is where most of the action is at. Offering stunning views of the city, it's the perfect place to relax and enjoy a drink with your partner.
The bountiful menu has something for everyone, from classic pizzas cooked to perfection in the restaurant’s own pizza oven to hangover-curing pasta dishes that will leave you feeling like a million bucks. If you’re feeling daring, we highly recommend trying one of the daily specials. We had the bresaola-topped carbonara that was nothing short of amazing. The creamy, traditional Roman dish is sharp in taste and rich in texture and is the perfect cure for any lingering fogginess.
But don't stop there - there are plenty of other hits on the menu too. The rosemary focaccia is a must-try, and Mama's famous salad is a refreshing palate cleanser. If you’re in the mood for some traditional French cuisine, fear not - there are plenty of options to choose from.
Of course, no meal is complete without a delicious cocktail to wash it down. We highly recommend the Marcheà l'ombre - a punchy fusion of tequila, mezcal, ginger, and spicy black pepper. Or, if you're in the mood for something playful, the Papi Chulo cocktail is a great companion to the Parisian sunset.
Overall, Mama Shelter West Paris is an unmissable experience for those looking for a sexy and fun weekend in the city.
From its unique design, comfortable rooms, and lively atmosphere, it's sure to be a memorable experience for anyone looking to add a bit of excitement to their Paris trip.
