Mama Shelter is bringing its unique brand to Rome with the launch of Mama Roma, the group’s first outpost in Italy, scheduled to open in July 2021.

Spread over six floors, Mama Roma’s 217 rooms have been conceived by the group’s in-house design team, Mama Design Studio.

Along with the brand’s first ever Mama Baths, the property’s F&B options will encompass an Italian osteria and a rooftop restaurant with an island bar.

The cutting-edge design will be enjoyed by guests from upon entry into the hotel and the common areas, where mosaic floors and column capitals depicted on the walls meet the ceilings adorned with artwork by graphic designer and artist Beniloys, as well as contemporary geometric shapes throughout.

Traditional Roman cuisine will make up the varied menu of the Mama Roma restaurants, including wood oven pizzas and Mama’s international signature dishes. The dining outlets – with their large communal tables – invite conviviality and sharing and will also be open to external guests through a separate access.

With views overlooking the of the Eternal City and the St. Peter’s dome, the rooftop will be equipped with a solarium and will offer an island bar with homemade cocktails, a beer corner and a hot kiosk for snacks, light meals and drinks.

Serge Trigano, Founder of Mama Shelter, comments: “Rome is the ultimate magical city. Its history, miraculously and entirely preserved, seduces us at each corner of the street. And at the same time, the Romans have manners and a certain elegance which give it all its charm and its modernity.”

Adding: “Since the beginning of Mama’s adventure, we dreamed of settling here and this will become a reality in the near future. Mama Roma will be located next to the Vatican and only three metro stops from the historical city centre. All aspects of our identity will be found in this Mama: the restaurants, the rooftop, the designed bedrooms, the colourful lobby and in addition a spa and its indoor swimming pool.”
