          I have to say Mama Shelter is one of the best hotels I've ever stayed in France. This modern and stylish hotel is totally beyond our expectations. It's about 8 minutes walk from the nearest Metro station (Baille). Staffs at the reception desk were very helpful and friendly. Our double room is equipped with an iMac, which comes with a selection of on-demand films, can also be used as a tv. Free WiFi, breakfast was fanastic. I would recommand this hotel to anyone who intends to visit Marseille.

          The layout of the bathroom was a bit unusually, couldn't open the door completely. The hotel restaurant were fully booked at night, sadly we didn't make a reservation. The staffs at the reception desk did ask if we want to book a table for dinner when we checked in, but we didn't realise it can be that busy at night.

          The front desk staff was outstanding, especially Katja who was the first to greet me and continued throughout my stay to make me feel like I was staying with friends instead of in a faceless hotel. Another staffer also spent a good amount of time with me going over a map and finding markets and other interesting sites. The design elements, from the flatware in the dining area to the carpets, lighting, and even elevator interior, was absolutely cutting edge cool, really quite amazing. "Bobzilla" is a real person who directs the interior design and other cool aspects, and he was very upbeat and friendly in a dual role as ringmaster of fun, concerts, DJs, etc... The free movies on an iMac as the TV, computer, alarm clock, and everything else visual/sound related was a great aspect too. Excellent quality food, great brunch selection, American coffee!

          There was a hot water heater/pot in the room, but no coffee/tea/sugar/milk...this was my only disappointment with the room, but it was a big one. I have stayed in some of the least expensive hotels in the world and some of the most expensive too.... and in none of them where there was a water heating device was there nothing to do with the hot water!!! The cups provided were plastic, and I am afraid they would have melted if I had put boiling water and instant coffee in them. I asked a staff member whether housekeeping had just forgotten to give me the coffee/etc, and they didn't seem to understand why I was concerned... The response was the "We're different." That is a difference that I'm hoping they will realize is not a good one, and remedy it ASAP.

          The great and unusual design of the hotel, the extremely comfortable bed, the TV and the location - within walking distance from the city center.

          The toilet was too close to the sink, in general the bathroom was way too crammed, but the shower was great!

        • Couple
          9.2

          New hotel with interesting design. We liked iMac on the wall with wide range of free movies. Nice restaurant at the first floor but you'd better make a reservation in advance at it's a very busy place. Fast WiFi connection, but it breaks if you don't use it for a short time, so you ned to logon one more time.

          It's not allowed to use refrigerator as it has an automatic payment system when you take something from it. You'd better take rooms at 3rd floor and higher as the noise from the restaurant can disturb you. 15 min to metro, 10 min - to the nearest food store.

        • Couple
          10.0

          Clean, well-designed room with an iMac-based entertainment system. This place had everything - easy walk to the Metro, cafes and the port, friendly reception staff, great food on-site, top-notch comfort. Quite possibly our best hotel-stay during a month in France.

          great rooms: Imac, free movies, super shower, great bed, good breakfast as far as design is concerned it's a hit and miss, somethings are brilliant, some others quite stupid

        • Older travelers
          9.6

          Unusual and attractive design, for instance, the placement of the bed. Good option to use as apartment with kitchenette equipment. Very nice restaurant, good food and ambiance. Friendly staff, parking available.

          The fridge works in a strange manner and you can't put things in it, only take them out.

        • Couple
          9.6

          Excellent food in restaurant, very friendly receptionists, good music in restaurant and design of rooms and restaurants.

          Location is not very good

        • Older travelers
          9.2

          We loved the design and decor and the inventive details of the hotel. The breakfast was superb, the staff very friendly and helpful. It was a modern oasis in old Marseille and we couldn't have been happier. We thought we were a bit old to be staying there ( we are in our 60s) but were reassured that no one is too old or too young for MamaShelter.

          We would have liked a tiny space in the mini bar to store the cheese we were taking to friends elsewhere. But once you removed a bottle another one took its place! However, the staff were most helpful, gave us a bucketful of ice and lent us a bottle opener, and stored our freezer packs in their bar freezer till we left, thus solving the problem.

          I just missed a small fitness center. Location is not the best, Difficult to find.

          Great new hotel, well equipped and comfortable rooms.

          The surrounding area is a bit strange... Although, it was easy to find (with gps) and quite close to many restaurants.

          Best hotel we've ever stayed in- it was splendid!!

        • Couple
          9.2

          Loved the bar and great restaurant - we had a really good dinner there. The staff were very professional, friendly and helpful. The rooms are very cool with great design features and the little touches - the map for guests; free films; party masks; free internet and wi-fi; the terrace; Kiehl toileteries are all great. Plus we got the room for a great price on Booked.net and were then upgraded at the hotel! Basically, it's a very relaxing party hotel. Also, it made us explore different parts of Marseille and Mont Sacre-coeur and Cours Julien were interesting and fun.

          The location is strange. It's 10 to fifteen minutes to the two closest underground stations and within 5 minutes of the hotel it's a bit of a residential desert. However, if you explore a bit further it's worth it
