We stayed here for one night on our way to Provence for Christmas...and I really didn't want to leave after just one night. The hotel is very modern with quirky decor, but warm and welcoming at the same time. The rooms are sparsely decorated but have the basics right at a level that is outstanding.
The beds are SO comfy with fluffy pillows and lovely warm duvets, and the mattress is simply a beauty to sleep on. The bathroom is clean with fluffy warm white towels, and delicious mama shower products.

Best sleep ever...and as that wasn't enough...the breakfast was out of this world. Not included in our hotel price but well worth the €15.00. I think you'd be hard pushed to get a better breakfast anywhere!!

My only criticism is that I didn't get to stay for longer :-)

Well done, mama!

I was rather put off by the dodgy decor at Mama Shelter when I first arrived. It's all very edgy and graffiti-covered...I assume it's done for the 'yoof'. The bedroom was also off-putting at first view with bare concrete walls, graffiti and even a carpet that had a graffiti decoration.

However, staying there was a joy. The bed is probably the most comfortable I have ever tried. It is wonderfully quiet. The food is good - particularly the breakfast which has home made breads and cakes, home made jams, genuinely freshly-squeezed juices and hot food as well as great fruit, cheese and ham. The curtains really keep the light out and the whole place is spotless.

I was also very impressed by the genuinely friendly and helpful service at all times.

It's not far from the centre of Lyon - just a few stops on the metro or you can walk it. It's in a relatively quiet part of town, not a lot to do in the area but there's lots in the centre of Lyon!

Room Tip: As far as I know they're all good.

I visited this place because of business,not only sleeping but having 2 days meeting. Designed, apple crazy place, with great food and very friendly staff. Good breakfast. 3 min walk to metro, close to old Lyon. Perfect place, doesn't matter of the reason.

Although we only had one night here, we thoroughly enjoyed it.
The hotel is ultra modern, with a converted warehouse feel.
We loved all the quirky novelties and set up. The staff were helpful and friendly, the buffet breakfast was amazing and the bar was very cool.

The location seemed to be a bit far from the main areas, about a 30 min walk.

Would stay here again and would recommend to others.

Although minimalistic, the room was cozy and provided everything we needed for a great and astonishing stay.

Unlike many other so called urban hotels, design and equipment in the room did not lack substance. It was consistent, meaningful and really helped creating a peculiar, relaxing and pleasant atmosphere in the room.

We did not visit the bar / restaurant because we like quieter places for a cool evening out but noise was no issue in the room (we were on the upper floors). Soundproof was excellent. We could not hear our neighbors or any disturbance from the busy street facing the hotel.

Service was top notch and friendly throughout our stay. Great attitude and attention. All very professional.

Location could be better but we easily walked from and to any part of the city. There is not much around the hotel but it was close to the nearest metro station.

Deals were unbeatable at the time we booked so for us there was no other right option. Mama Shelter in Lyon was the perfect pick. No doubt we will be back.

Room Tip: Rooms vary in size depending upon which side of the hotel they are located. Simply ask for a large room.
