Comfortable room with excellent bed. Very good bathroom and shower. Very friendly staff. Nice bar. Breakfast was Buffet with a very big selection of hot and clod food. The hot food was good.. not the usual soggy mess. Nice fresh fruit etc was on offer. The hotel is away from main roads so it is quiet but it is very... More

I cannot say enough good about this hotel! The staff were just great. The place is a delight to the eyes, the cocktails and buffet breakfast delicious. We had an easy walk over the bridge into the liveliest (and noisier) part of Lyon. It definitely appeals to a younger crowd, but I (being a senior) felt very comfortable there. Looking... More

Enjoyed my stay here. I was alone on business so I normally don't eat at the restaurant but they have a huge funky bar where you can eat, surrounded by rubber baby swimming rings above your head, and fantastic music so I didn't feel out of place. The location is a bit off center - in the morning it cost... More

This is a cool modern hotel. The staff is friendly and the rooms are small but nice. The breakfast is great. Over the weekend they have a DJ and the restaurant/bar is packed with a young crowed. I would try a hotel in the center next time because the location is not great.

Loved our stay here. It's cool, funky, and completely different from other hotel we've stayed at in the past. A little difficult to find because of the small signage on the front of the building, but that's about the only negative I can say about this spot. The rooms are a good size and well furnished with comfortable beds and... More

I booked Mama as it was relatively cheap over the weekend. Super friendly people, both in the restaurant and at reception. Small room, but very stylish and very comfortable bed. Breakfast was great, freshly squeezed juices, two large self-service Jura coffee machines. While being close to a tram and the metro, it takes a while to get into the old... More

Really like this hotel - it is funky and cool with a great restaurant and cocktail bar. Rooms are comfortable with free TV. My new favourite hotel in Lyon - will always stay here in future. Keep up the good work!

My experience at Mama Shelter Lyon was extraordinary, in every possible way. I agree with the other reviewers, the hotel is very cool, trendy with a nice shop, an amazing restaurant, really good food and a lively bar with excellent drinks. However, the unexpected happened during my stay, the day we were supposed to leave I became horribly sick. I... More

This amazingly managed trendy hotel yet full of quirkiness & hip features is located in a surprisingly quiet neighbourhood of Lyon. Certainly a great success with its funky interior design and layout, this property also denotes that belonging to the Trigano empire (Club Med & co) might have benefited from all sorts of 'lessons learnt' on the main resort business...
