This is a different type of hotel from the norm. It's hip, cool and like a night club with rooms. The rooms are cool and comfortable enough, little austere with the bare concrete wall. The Mac computer is good and overall it's a pleasant room. They have masks in each room so that's fun!!! Breakfast is good too, buffet style... More

It was our first holiday with our 3 month old baby and we initially booked a standard room. They upgraded us to give us more space (due to the cot bed) and we stayed 4 nights in a Mama Deluxe. It was spacious, clean, super confortable. The shower was big enough so we could install the inflatable bath for our... More

This isn't really a hotel, though it has lots of very well appointed and very comfortable rooms. Really it's a night club, with a very very long bar, and a number of rather squashed tables, which happens to have some hotel rooms on top of it. The decor, as others have noted, is somewhat unusual: I think it is trying... More

The hotel in general is very original. Good taste for colours, materials, food, flavours... The rooms are modern and clean with very good beds. The staff was really friendly. Breakfast is amazing. The Buns (Italian menu) are delicious.

The check in and check out were really top: employees do make you feel welcome and "loved" and seem genuinely happy of being of help. The room is a bit small, but really comfortable. The... More

Enthusiastic and helpful staff. As others have said about this place, even middle aged travellers are made to feel welcome. The hotel is quirky, but having said that the rooms have what you hope for in a good hotel - large comfortable bed, en suite where everything works, light and airy, and easy to use entertainment (Mama Shelter goes further...

Mama Shelter is a true love brand. A fresh air for hotel accommodation. Rooms are bright, modern. Lounge and restaurant is cool. Service is good. They also provide meeting rooms where we did our recent YPO meeting with 6 consecutive rooms. Definitely recommended!
