Mama Shelter Marseille
Ranked #9 of 132 Hotels in Marseille
Reviewed June 13, 2012

Stayed 4 days (actually extended cancelling the other hotel ;-p).
Place :
Not closed to the "viex port". Walking fast in 20 mins to reach there.
From Marseille St. C. railway station to the hotel, it is easy.
But the hotel stands in a middle of the living area.
It's in France and the parking on streets were very terrible :-(( - walked difficult.
Reception :
Nice and very friendly almost always :-)
Room :
Kitsch but OK ;-)
Actually the floor is PVC and it smelled strong...needed to open windows first.
TV is Mac. Through Mac PC we can see the TV, surf internet, listen to Radio, Music...etc. Fun if you can use Mac.
Wifi - fine :-)
Clearning :
Seems the person who cleaned our room was lazy?! Found out the room was not cleaned.
Bathroom :
OK but the shower room was not well-desiged practically... door cannot be shut completely.
Bar/Restrant :
Fantastic!!
Beer was too expensive but the foods were tasty.
Why don't they price sweets so expensive? :-((
Breakfast is almost same everyday - but it was much BETTER than French hotels i stayed before :-))
Satisfied anyway!

The staff are very friendly and wonderful, helpful and willing. That started a wonderful stay at this quirky hotel.

It is not your conventional hotel, there is fun in the design and details, from the free movies and free adult movies, a mac monitor that you can set to take pictures of you in bed (there are masks on the wall you can wear! haha), fun fun fun. The design in the room was very clean minimalistic, the beds are very comfy, although the rooms are small (but I got the cheapest room) so can't complain.

The restaurant is excellent, make sure you make a reservation, it gets packed at night. The breakfast is wonderful as well.

The location is kind of nowhere, although not too far from everything else, a walk to the Old Port is about 15 minutes, about 10 minutes to shopping, and 5 minutes to restaurants.

Love the hotel a lot.

stayed for two nights. the room was very stylish and well appointed. the staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. one of the staff at reception kindly went to the trouble of printing me some suggestions of places to see and directions. the bar and restaurant was stylish, trendy, and fab!
