We had a one night stay in Lyon before boarding a river boat cruise. The staff was very friendly and had good command of English (much better than my use of French). The restaurant was very pleasant and food was good. We ate fairly early as we had flown over from US that day and were quite tired. It looked... More

I stayed here in early August, after having spent a month travelling Italy, I started with the Coast of France and made my way in land to Lyon. the location is great if you don't mind hopping on and off the metro - which is clean, quick and has great access to all the sights. I stayed here for 3... More

Enjoyed my stay in Mama Shelter. Fun place to stay in Lyon. Very nice rooms quite modern with fun fitout. Breakfast was amazing with gorgeous pastries and lovely French cuisine. Staff very helpful and everyone spoke fluent English. Loved it here.

I have stayed at the Lyon and Paris locations and both were great hotels. I wouldn't stay anywhere else when traveling to a city where there is a Mama Shelter. My fiancé and I found the staff very friendly and the room very comfortable. This hotel is geared towards singles/couples, which is nice for those of us without kids. Free... More

We had a fantastic stay at Mama Shelter. The staff were super lovely and attentive and very quick for any requests - I called reception for an iron and I had hardly hung up the phone before there was a knock on my door! Bed was comfortable, the room was fantastic and the bathroom was spotless (what you want!). We... More

Mama Shelter has captured what singles want out of a vacation which is to meet other singles in a very fun environment. I went to Lyon on an anniversary celebration and my wife and I had a blast. Its very modern and quite the fun decoration. The hotel is in a central location but still off the beaten path so... More

Reminded me somewhat of Ace Hotel in NY, very cool and funky but super friendly, excellent quality everything and super service. All sorts of thoughtful touches in the room and services offered. Staff could not have been more helpful. Great rates too. Amazing place to stay. I'll always look to stay in a Mama Shelter wherever possible! Stay dog friendly... More

This place is down right amazing. From the friendly welcome down to the little decoration details. Very pop art in its heart, the atmosphere is laid back and friendly. We stayed in room 705 (Big Mama) on the roof and enjoyed our own private terrace with our own ping pong (table tennis) table! Note: The rackets are in the safe…... More

Fun decoration, convenient location (~5 mins walk from the underground and two stops from the historical sites), friendly staff, delicious breakfast (included in our package) and good price! Just room and bed were bit small... and there is no obvious sign showing name of the hotel at the front door (making it hard to locate when we first arrived)... Mac... More

Staff and facilities were excellent. Bed was incredibly comfortable. Breakfast buffet at EUR16 per person was very worthwhile. One of the best we have had. Room climate control was very effective and quiet. Overall good value for money. The hotel is located quite a distance from the old city centre. You would walk it in about 20 minutes. We knew...
