Very good experience. Personnel is absolutely kind and location is great. Great venue and decoration is very unique. The casual atmosphere and the bar make this establishment the place to go while in Lyon !

The hotel is in a less-travelled part of Lyon but is well connected to all modes of transportation (and Lyon is not that big of a city in terms of spread). No issue there. Service is good and very polite. The hotel can only be described as hipster central. Very trendy furnishing

I was at this hotel for the second time. The room was large enough and clean, but too warm (the air con did not cool down). There is a large enough safe for a laptop. The bathroom was clear and bright, but somewhat simple. The room was louder than I remembered from my first

How centrally located is the hotel? Is it appropriate for children?
Bonjour, The Mama Shelter Lyon is perfectly located at 13 Rue Domer in the 7th arrondissement. In the heart of the Jean Macé district, an urban epicenter of the city with an energy that reminds one of the Brooklyn of our dreams, the Mama Shelter is located not far from the Rhone and only three stations from the train station Par Dieu. We are located 25 minutes from the airport, very close to the tram, and on the metro line B, convenient and central. Mama welcomes children at all ages, please let me know if you have any other questions, or if you need any help to organize your staying in Lyon. Wishing you a great sunny day, Lina
