Unlike most chains, there's a personal touch which creates really lovely spaces in the hotel, especially the bar. The rooms are light, a good size and have fantastically comfortable beds. The breakfast is outstanding. A great hotel if you're young, old, with family, with children... Highly recommended.

I love this hotel. It's fun and stylish with a fabulous bar, great food and cocktails. The bar keeps on going until late with a DJ, yet the rooms are still quiet. Breakfasts are buffet style, but with everything you could wish for (the amazingly indulgent homemade hot chocolate and marmalade crepes are particularly good). This is a great hotel... More

I stayed one night, and enjoyed my stay. Lyon was a wonderful place to end my European business trip, and this hotel was very different to every other hotel I had stayed in. The hotel is overly hip, and the bar on the Thursday night that I stayed was very very lively. The check-in and front desk staff were extremely... More

My friend found and booked this hotel, and I was reticent to stay here because despite the appealing photography and excellent reviews, officially it is a 2* hotel. For a 2* hotel this place is amazing, and even for a 4* hotel I'm impressed. Thought has definitely gone into it. It has a young trendy New York hotel feel, with... More

Refreshing new concept in hotels. Very clean and stylish room, super staff, great atmosphere, prices realistic, comfortable common areas, not sterile like so many other big hotels. In easy walking or cycling distance from the places of interest. I would highly recommended this as a place to stay if visiting Lyon

To get to the hotel, we used the metro. From the Part Dieu station, it is the third stop at Jean Mace. From the exit at Jean Mace, Mama Shelter is only a five minute walk. From the time we checked in, we found the personnel to be very pleasant and friendly. We were given a map of the city... More

This wonderful and quirky hotel is just a prefect stay in Lyon. The staff are welcoming and friendly. There is parking available. The rooms are extra comfortable with a fun atmosphere, great showers and comfy beds. The food available is excellent quality and the seating area is a flexible and fun mix of design and function. I love this darling... More

Lovely design-conscious hotel, had a lovely stay during our time in Lyon. Good-sized rooms, comfortable bed. Amenities were adequate (however would appreciate a tea/coffee-making facilities and a fridge). Staff were welcoming and very helpful. The location is good - not central however super close to the metro and does not take long to get anywhere!

Due to another punishing schedule I only spent around 7 hours here from check in to check out. Very cosmopolitan - have a look at the photos on here. Rooms OK. I'm surprised the hotel rates so highly as I don't think it would appeal to everyone. Personally I would stay elsewhere next time.

Easily found in Lyon. Very trendy decor, polished cement walls in the bedrooms. Excellent design and touches. Would have liked a fridge that we could have fit our own drinks in rather than it being made up of designated slots for the minibar cans. And also we couldn't plug our own music source into the apple monitor, only listen to... More
