This is a great choice for a stay in Marseille, particularly for those who enjoy modern, trendy hotels. The rooms are quite modern with the concrete ceilings and walls, however it was also quite fun and quirky, with very comfy beds and a powerful shower (which did go a bit hot-cold). In response to a point on the last review,... More

Well I'm going to kind of buck the trend of the glowing reviews about Mama Shelter. It was OK... nothing more than that and a few points that need to be looked at. I got a really good rate for this hotel with the new year offer on the Mama website of a certain amount of rooms at only €49... More

The hotel is very funky and very artsy. Great decoration, the iMacs in the rooms and around the hotel. Good Wifi. Fantastic buffet breakfast, especially for France. Extremely clean rooms and hotels. It is spotless and the staff is very friendly. The garage is a little pricey (50 Euros for 3 nights), but is worth it. The hotel is a... More

Small but cozy modern rooms, iMac at the wall with free movies (and even with the possibility to snap a pic of yourself with the iSight camera for the posterity). Good breakfast and good prices. Definitely a place worth checking out.

I liked the hotel very much. It is very stylish. The rooms are very convinient and planned in a nice way. It is located not in the center to everything but a 10 minutes walk to Old Port. The personnel is very friendly and always ready to assist in anything. This is really a modern guy would expect from the... More

Lovely hotel and well worth the visit. The selection of adult films may be to somebodies taste and did provide some giggles. The apple screen, design features are wonderful fun and the restaurant/bar is well worth a visit. Lovely cocktails and friendly staff. Only minus is that there was no soap on our second night and we had to go... More

The Mama Shelter is an absolutely fantastic hotel, the designs are quirky, colourful, fun yet stylish and chic. The rooms are kitted out with the latest Apple TVs, comfortable beds.

3-night stay at Marseille Mama Shelter and although I loved the friendly service I wished the rooms were larger and set up differently. We had a room on the 6th floor facing the road side and the windows were slanted toward the bed. This made walking behind the bed impossible. The rooms on other floors do not seem to have... More

“We made good use of the microwave and were on a high floor - the hotel has a very popular bar open to non residents so if you want quiet go for a higher floor. We did not hear a sound. Oh, and you must view the photos and videos that people made in the rooms on supplied Apple Mac - so amusing and creative:) ”
