Reviewed 11 August 2013

Excellent place to stay in Lyon with an excellent ambiance and a room equiped with all U can need for a pleasent stay. Located 2 blocks from Metro Station Jean Macé, a perfect connection with Gare Lyon Part Dieu (there are escalators and elevators!!!) and combines with other lines that take U to the Vieux Lyon, Bellecour, etc.
The breakfast is so complet, U won't be dissapointed.
I'd definitely come back.

I really enjoyed my stay in Mama Shelter. New, trendy and clean. The hotel is very nice with really comfortable beds and a nice staff. There is no need to stay late in the city if you come back to such a fun and nice bar in the hotel. I would definitely stay here again and look into any other Mama Shelter for future travels.

Easily one of the best hotels I have stayed at, with great sized rooms, free movies and excellent service. Weekend deals make this place an absolute steal, and is a much better option than some of the more conventional hotels in the area. The hotel is about a 15 minute walk to the centre of town, but is well served with a metro and tram station near by. Parking is safe, but maybe slightly expensive. Dining options and the bar are expensive too, but definitely worth the money if only to try some of their unique cocktails and creations. Ambience is superb too, making it more than your average hotel bar. Hotel rooms are kitted out with iMacs, plenty of ports and even a microwave. Bigger rooms even have table tennis and other creative and fun options. Will definitely stay here again next time I am in Lyon, and perhaps will try their other hotels too.

The reception was friendly and welcoming.
The room was clean, simple and practical. No frills. The only thing I did not like are the masks hanging in the room, too creepy for me.
Bar service good.
Breakfast buffet, reasonable price, varied, fresh. And breakfast in the quiet sunfilled garden!!!
Central. Very accessible to the two train stations, several bus line and the metro.

I stayed here for two nights over Bastille Day weekend in 2013. The taxi driver had not heard of the hotel but knew where to go once I gave him the address.The rooms here were extremely reasonable in terms of cost especially when you consider the amenities. The TV was from Apple and there were free recent movies in English. However, you are a good 20 minute walk from the action. Ask the front desk to direct you to the nearby metro station and you'll be golden. Because of the design of the shower, it flooded every time I took a shower (like so bad that the carpet outside the bathroom was wet). The hotel needs to fix the shower design because they will eventually get mold. I recommend this hotel for young couples who want a fun place to stay.

Boutique hotel, modern look, not too big room, clean, very friendly staff, great bar for cocktails, live music.
50 m from metro station. Book in advance at least 1 month.
Reasonable price per night - 58 Eur.
Did not eat there because of bad critics that we read, but while having a cocktail we have observed all the food brought out for the branch and it looked quite nice especially the cakes.

Room Tip: Corner suites have a better view.

The Rue Marc Bloch flanks the 156-room building and the mere mention of this name, the creator of the Annales School, commands a sort of seriousness that can be seen in the building's very facade. It was thinking about Marc Bloch and also Jean Moulin, that gave the creators of the MAMA their desire to be here. It is by dreaming about a puppet's cheek and that of its creator Laurent Mourguet, that in time, MAMA wants to become a place for freedom, discussions and passion. Sensual and elegant rooms equipped with Apple iMacs 27"(TV, Internet, CD/DVD Player, IChat, Photobooth, Videobooth) and 5 Star bedding (Duvet 100% Satin Coton Sheets).
