Overnight in Mama Shelter, Lyon
Nice room with a few extras - face masks included! Very lively bar and restaurant. We ate at the bar and listened to the DJ. Food fine. Big breakfast/brunch scene in the morning with ample choice. Hotel located in residential area about 20 min stroll from town. Public transport nearby. Hotel has parking underneath which we weren’t aware of until after check-in. Otherwise parking virtually impossible - seems to be lots of cars and little public parking in the area. Overall good choice for a night or two in Lyon.

Nice Stay
Nice, quirky, clean & modern place to stay in Lyon. I have visited several Mama Shelters and they hold to the same standards. The Lyon Location is a bit away from the popular areas, but it’s convenient if you have to park your car and the neighborhood is quiet at night for sleeping. Good Points: -Staff is polite and helpful -Beds are very comfortable -Rooms are very clean Negative Points: -The “kitchenette” setup in the rooms is pretty useless. A sink and a microwave, but what for? I would strongly suggest installing a fridge and a coffee maker/kettle or offering room service. Otherwise you have to leave the room/hotel to find coffee in the morning. -We attempted to take a coffee and continental breakfast on 2 mornings, but the cappuccino machine was broken, so no possibility for a milk coffee. Surprised there was no alternative during an entire weekend in a hotel of this size. Otherwise, a nice, quirky, modern and very clean place to stay.

Should be a ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.
Beautiful modern hotel.5 minute walk to train/trolley station. Lots of good pastries and eateries close by. Very safe, you need a room key to access the elevator. Also has 24hr security.
Jesse, us4 night romance trip
Good 6.0
A convenient location and friendly staff but missing some things for the price. The breakfast could be considerably improved, a bedside light would be good, room temperature difficult to sort and was therefore too hot or cold and the busy bar/restaurant lacked a slightly quieter space.

A perfect stay for the weekend in Lyon
I didn't know what to expect with this hotel as i am a sucker for loyalty towards brands. I was amazed with everything during my staff, friendly check-in agent. room is clean and up to date with tech. Great selection of movies to watch. A retro breakfast place with good options for a French hotel. I would recommend and stay here again. One this to improve would be to place a signage on the building as it is difficult to identify the hotel

Poor 2.0
Absolutamente desgradables
Escalones para entrar Ningún empleado del hotel se ofrece a ayudarte con las maletas. En recepción atención de gente sin formación y con muy mala educación. Mi marido no puede llevar mascarilla y exigieron el certificado del cardiólogo e lo escanearon. Después nos impidieron acceder a la habitación, a pesar de haber pagado la reserva con antelación, al no funcionar su datáfono, para dejar la garantía de 50€ que según comentaron era por si rompíamos algo. La decoración en recepción no es ni mucho menos la esperada. El lugar es oscuro, con elementos desagradables y el aspecto es descuidado, nada limpio. Al ser llamados para solicitar la cancelación de la reserva por se negaron a ello.
