How the the Serbian capital’s Ottoman history influenced Jalil Amor's design for Mama Shelter Belgrade

Mama Shelter has opened its seventh property along Ulica Kneza Mihaila in central Belgrade.

Designed by São Paulo-based designer Jalil Amor, the Mama Shelter Belgrade has décor that pays tribute to the Serbian capital’s Ottoman history. The property has woven kilim rugs, as well as a combination of matte colors, vintage prints and sofas that reimagine the eastern bloc aesthetic.

Mama Shelter Belgrade has 125 rooms, all with king beds.

A 6,000-square-foot terrace provides views of The White City’s citadels and concrete towers. The hotel's restaurant has long tables designed to encourage socializing. The lounge has space for hanging out and listening to live music.

For events, the property has four meeting rooms that can accommodate up to 90 guests.

Mama Shelter Belgrade is one of two new Mama properties in Eastern Europe, with Mama Shelter Prague also set to open this year.
