Mama Shelter Istanbul

Mama Shelter Istanbul follows the success by Mama Shelters in Marseille, Lyon and Paris, the hotel located on Istiklal Caddesi, one of the liveliest streets in Istanbul.

This hip, artsy boutique hotel was designed by French designer Philippe Starck. Mama Shelter Istanbul offers chic rooms with modern amenities, 24-hour front desk service and free Wi-Fi.

Set over three floors at the top of a new department store on Istiklal Caddesi in central Istanbul, the 81-room hotel has Mama’s usual mix of humour and fun. Like the other properties, Mama Shelter Istanbul is designed by Philippe Starck and features guestrooms with whitewashed walls stippled with pops of orange.

Breakfast is served as an open buffet each morning. There is also an à la carte restaurant and a bar with a unique décor at the property.


The communal bar hosts a programme of hip DJ parties to attract young Turks, who begin the evening at the restaurant. The menu offers a mix of local and European fare by Michelin three-star chef Alain Senderens and features his special boeuf bourguignon with mashed potatoes. The roof terrace is serving an equally delectable menu of cocktails, is bound to be a summer hit.

There is free WIFI everywhere, and the bar offers excellent drinks and breakfast. Mama Shelter, like Istiklal itself, belongs wholeheartedly to the new Istanbul, and the combination of style, comfort and price makes it hard to beat.


Istiklal Avenue includes numerous restaurants, cafés, bars, shops and art galleries. Taksim Metro Station is only 550 metres from the property. Ataturk International Airport is 20 km away.
