Paris on a Budget
The new Parisian hotel Mama Shelter can't promise a really central location. But if you don't mind a slightly off-beat base, this Philippe Starck-designed crashpad offers access to all the city's clubs and cultural sites. The latest venture from the Trigano family, rooms are spacious and stylish and come with iMacs and free wi-fi.
