Mama Shelter has opened its latest property in the French city of Lille near the Belgian border.

Close to two major train stations and the Rem Koolhaas-designed Euralille business district, the Mama Shelter Lille has 112 guestrooms designed by Jalil Amor. 

Public space includes a restaurant, an outdoor terrace, four rentable studios called "ateliers" and a covered terrace. A lounge hosts live music acts. 

Serge Trigano launched Mama Shelter with sons Benjamin and Jérémie 11 years ago in Paris. In 2014 Accor bought a 35 percent stake in the brand, which also has hotels in Marseille, Lyon, Bordeaux, Los Angeles, Rio de Janeiro, Prague, Belgrade and Toulouse. Upcoming openings include Dubai, Lisbon, London, Luxembourg and a second hotel in Paris.
