Travellers' Choice
Mama Shelter Marseille is much more than just a place to sleep. It is a vibrant hub, where people gather around a meal elaborated by Guy Savoy and that is meant to be shared. This Mama has a 125 rooms, each fitted with 5-star bedding (Duvet 100% Satin Coton Sheets), across 6 floors, each decorated with different colors. They are both cool during the summertime and warm refuges during the cold winter. The rooms are equipped with connected TVs that centralise internet, television, free movies on demand and a photo/video booth function. This Mama is situated only 25km from the Marseille Provence Airport and only 10 minutes by car from the train station Gare Saint Charles. Take a break in Mama Shelter Marseille and enjoy the live concerts, shows, DJs, ping pong and if you have a car, rely on Mama's parking lot. The bank card used to guarantee the booking or make the prepayment will be requested at check-in.

We enjoyed the vibe of the hotel and found it had the basics of everything we needed. We upgraded for a "large" room, which while still not actually large, was comfortable. Bathroom was tight. Loved the in-room move selection. We did not, however, like the location, which was in a quiet part of town away from the main tourist attractions. Mask-wearing was a bit so-so among other people staying there.

Hotel's Favourite
I visited Marseille twice for vacation in February 2020. Both times at stayed at Mama Shelter. The second one because I enjoyed the first one. The hotel has very good rooms with good natural light. Clean bathrooms with strong water pressure in the shower. Breakfast with a large variety of options in a great setting. The room is alñso a bar at night where you can have a light meal or just cocktails. The hotel is close to Cours Julien which has nice restaurants with tables on the square. To go to the Vieux Port you can either walk (about half an hour at regular pace) or take the metro at Notre Dame du Mont. I recommend the hotel if you want a Marseille experience outside the regular tourist spots, but close to them.

I have stayed at this hotel with my husband (and sometimes with friends) several times but not in the last few years I realise that this hotel has changed hands & now belongs to the Accor group and of course they are dealing with Covid and all the problems associated with it. However,sadly, what had previously been an exciting and fun experience has now become pretty drab.On the plus side the breakfast was good and the staff on duty in the dining room were helpful and pleasant Several negatives though…. The rooms are now tired and need a revamp. I think we were given a room for handicapped guests- grab rails and the shower without any surround ( which created a dangerously flooded floor) . Additionally the bed was too small, dirty marks on the walls, paucity of bathroom accessories, no water in fridge. Check-in is 1500. At 1720 our grandsons room was still not available. We were offered a coffee to make up for this! I think this will be our last stay at Mama Shelter Marseille.

Hi Anna, Thanks for your feedback, I regret we coudn't speack together before you left. Unfortunatly due to the covid we have to apply more rules and for sure it's less friendly than usual. I'm glad you found breakfast of the Mama like your memory. I'm really sorry for the delay of your grandsons room. I immedially intervened with my housekeeping manager. I hope you will give a new chance to Mama shelter and I will be very happy to welcome you personally. I wish you a lovely week end. Loic / General Manager

We enjoyed this hotel although you see that they didn't put much love in the hotel. The bathroom was wrongly design because the closet where the sink is was standing next to the toilet so you could not sit on it on normal way. In room 315 one of the powerlets switch of with the light. And in the interior design you saw many quick solutions and the floor are really intense and our design style. So it felt as a IBIS quality with experience of a nice bar/restaurant. And a friendly and hip staff. The area is great. So we would come back but you should accept this.
