We came here from Paris by car, I booked the hotel online whilst on Australia.There weren't many tourists, mainly French business folks. The Deluxe room was very modern and funky.
There is a bar and band playing downstairs, the price was reasonable. Reasonable breakfast.

Happy to recommend.

Stayed: July 2014

As part of our vacation road trip through Eastern France, we booked a room for two nights at Mama Shelter, Lyon. Yes, it looked a bit unique online, and we weren't sure how that uniqueness would translate in person, but rest assured, a very cool, unique, fun, friendly place to stay in Lyon! The customer service was exceptional, from showing us where to park the car, to making a dinner reservation for us - anything we inquired about was answered quickly, efficiently and in a very friendly manner. We loved the location in Lyon - we are walkers, and enjoyed our walk into Lyon for dinner and to visit the sites. The room was wonderful - so clean, bright, quiet, comfortable. Mama Shelter, Lyon won our award for "Best Night's Sleep on Our French Road trip". And shhhhh! When I inquired when Mama Shelter would bring their brand of cool and hip to US? They said LA in 2015!

Stayed here for 3 nights and the rooms are exceptionally clean, staff very knowledgeable and friendly and also speak very good English. The hotel is only 50 mtrs from metro and one stop to centre of town. Would definitely stay in a mama shelter hotel again.

This is a hip, boutique hotel that puts design sensibilities front and center. There is a youthful playfulness about the place.

Check-in was friendly, just wished the security/doorman had offered to help my friend with her bags up the outside steps.

The rooms are large, equipped with a wet bar, microwave, and in-room safe. The bathrooms were large with great shower.

I loved the Apple TV as a portal, with free movies.

One complaint was the room does not cool enough, no matter how high (low) you set the AC.

We only had a drink in the bar and it seemed like a popular place. The front desk made several meal reservations for us, and were friendly and helpful. The location is close to metro, but otherwise a good 30 minute walk from the touristy places.

We booked a room at Mama Shelter for a weekend getaway from Geneva. One of our selection criteria was convenient parking and we found it within the same property for a moderate price. The hotel was chic and comfy, the restaurant with its nice terrace was excellent and perhaps the best part was a good location right next to all public transport connections. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast very much recommended though it's at a separate price. A great, fun place to stay within a walking distance from all the sights, well recommended!

Room Tip: Deluxe handicap was very spacious at a good price, though couldn't compare with any of the other rooms.
