Since it opened in 2008, the Philippe Starck-designed Mama Shelter hotel in a stylishly converted former car park in Paris’ 20th arrondissement has been an instant hit amongst style- and budget-conscious travelers, with its smallest rooms starting at €79. Its cool public spaces and focus on events (plus a now legendary Sunday brunch) have helped to make the outlying 20th arrondissement an epicenter of hip for in-the-now Parisians and in-the-know tourists.

The Mama Shelter brand has branched out to locations in Marseille, Lyon, as far afield as Istanbul, and next month will bring its provocative space-saving high-design and modern conveniences (every room is equipped with a 24-inch iMac loaded with TV, radio, web and free wifi and a minibar) to the heart of French wine country.

To celebrate the launch of its fifth location, Bordeaux, on October 15, the hotel is offering 1,000 €49 rooms while they last.
