Marseille has been declared European Capital of Culture this year and we think that’s a fantastic excuse to visit this lovely city with more than 2500 years of history. Located in the Southeast coast of France, Marseille is one of the largest commercial ports of the Mediterranean sea, as well as the main entrance to the fabulous Côte d’Azur.
This year the cultural scene in Marseille is bursting with huge events: from classic Operas to excellent exhibitions dedicated to Surrealism. You can check what’s going on here. This cultural live deserves a visit… but also those charming streets full of book or flower markets, the breathtaking sea views and the exquisite cuisine.
And we have found a modern boutique hotel that would be the perfect headquarters for your adventures: Mama Shelter Marseille. This fantastic hotel, designed by Philip Starck, offers an incredible accommodation from just 49 euros. Crazy, huh?
Mama Shelter offers great design, that’s true, but they also provide free movies in your room, multimedia iMac and 40 beach chairs in one of the best locations in the coast, specially booked for their guests.
And now that you are in France you want to eat eat eat, don’t you? Well then! The restaurant at the hotel masters excelent Mediterranean cuisine created by the chefs Alain Senderens and Jérôme Banctel. And they have a yummy brunch on Sundays!
We are dying to visit Marseille and this über cool hotel! You can book your room here.
PS: There are Mama Shelters in Istambul, Paris and Lyon too!
