Design Hotel, Hip Eatery, Lobby Lounge
A spin-off of the playfully successful Philippe Starck-designed hotel in Paris, Mama Shelter Istanbul comes to life along a lively walking street in the Beyoglu district known for its offerings of galleries, restaurant and nightlife. In a city ripe with design boutique, Mam Shelter offers a more complete entertainment offering than the completion with hotspot eatery by Alain Senderens and Jerome Banctel offering Franco-Turkish cuisine in a spirited setting of industrial meets boho beach-style decor under a chalkboard ceiling that extends around a rectangular cocktail bar open to guests and locals alike.
The 81-room hotel benefits from a top-notch location and inventive design by the creator of the modern boutique hotel movement. Rooms are cast in a mix of pure white and slate gray color tone with built-in working desks at the end of simple beds adorned in white custom headboards. Larger garden and terrace rooms comes with architectural details like white brick walls, separate living area and outdoor spaces that vary in neighborhood to peek-a-boo city views.
