The decoration of the hotel was Cool; simple, chic and tasteful. The bed was comfortable, the room and bathroom was a good size (room 610). Most importantly the staff made a huge difference to our experience at the hotel. Our stay here was the last part of our 3-week trip in France and the service here was comparable to a 5-star Relais & Chateau hotel we stayed in Provence. Every single staff was cheerful, helpful, enthusiastic and seem to really enjoy working there (not forced like in some hotels in France). The mini-fridge in the room was an "automatic sensor" drink dispenser and we could not put any of our stuff in there. The staff however offered to store our cheeses etc in their fridge behind reception till departure- great! We rarely eat in hotels but the food at Mama Shelter was actually good. Pizzas were delicious and the dinner mains were good too. Breakfast was included and was a good selection. The only slight negative was its location off the centre although the metro station was just a 5 min walk away. It wasn't as convenient after a day of shopping to dump the bags at the hotel before proceeding on to other activities.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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). MAMA SHELTER Lyon is ideally located 25 minutes from the airport, right near the tram and on metro line B and close to the Musee des Confluences.
