Mama Shelter Lyon
NUMBER OF ROOMS: 156 rooms
CLOSED ANNUALLY: Open all year round
THE STORY: After Paris, Marseille, Istanbul, but before Bordeaux and LA, the Trigano-Starck-Aouizerate trio has finally opened their “urban kibbutz” (sic) in Lyon. Why change a winning team? The décor is still designed by Starck, the cuisine remote-controlled by Guy Savoy, the foosball table enormous, and the prices are low for such high style rooms. It’s a joy to see this “little” family enterprise flourish in Lyon, which not only has more than a hundred beds, but also a groovy spirit! Rooms from only €69 to €209.
TOILETRIES: 3 in 1 Mama Skin shower gel (for your face, hair and body).
INTERNET: Free (wifi).
BREAKFAST: €17 buffet, with viennoiseries, hot drinks, orange juice, fruit salad, charcuteries, cheese, bacon, eggs, compote.
MINI-BAR: Mineral waters, Coca Cola, Orangina, Sprite, Minute Maid and Heineken.
LITTLE LUXURY: Really connected rooms with free iMac and VOD (not to mention the plastic masks for playing dress up!).
