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.
