4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The hotel is very creative, nice. The hotel bar is a good place where to take breakfast but also to have a super funky party at night. Rooms are spacious with free films of any kinds. The location is probably to far from other city parts like the sea front.

Upon arriving, the hotel does not look like much from the outside. When you walk through the doors you are greeted by a collection of crazy gifts you can buy with the mama shelter logo. The staff went out of their way to do anything to make our stay as welcoming as possible. They gave us tips on where to... More

The idea of Mama's shelter for her visiting children was well played out in the rooms as well as the breakfast bar. Fascinating interior design, wonderful and silent room and a very kind and accommodating staff. Great to stay close to Cours Julien which was a pleasant area both day and night, with lots of chic and vibrant bars and... More

Very simple but really nice. I would stay there again (or any Mama Shelter). I ate most of my meals there and enjoyed them. Liked the... More

Enjoyed my stay here, rooms are small but functional with nice design, although the desk would be hard to use on the top floor with the sloped window. Area was fine looks a little grubby but so does a lot of Marseilles. It is a bit of hike from the old port to here, not too far but if your... More

Hotel is situated in an old run down street that don't seem safe. Overpriced with no services AT ALL. There is a lot of basic Amenities that they do not provide. Please DO NOT stay here if you expect basic hotel service and experience. Firstly, they expect you to buy and pay for bedroom slipper because they don't provide them.... More
