Futuristic Design: Great for Groups


Futuristic Design: Great for Groups

The spread of low-cost carriers has led to more family and group travel. Unfortunately, most hotel rooms only accommodate two people, and it’s difficult to find a hostel or an Airbnb that can do the trick. Yooma Urban Lodge is the place. Not only does it cater to groups and families, but it also offers visitors amenities such as a restaurant, bar, and gym as well as other facilities one would find in a hotel. Some rooms accommodate up to six people. Baby baths and coin laundries give long-term guests and families with babies a reason to stay. The futuristic design, a collaboration between Ora Ito and Daniel Buren, fits in with the ambiance of this 1970s-designed district along the banks of the Seine. The lodge provides a place in Paris where groups can stay in comfort.
