    Well located, comfortable, welcoming staff.

    “As usual, very happy with Mama Shelter’s goods and services. The good quality of the bed sheets enable a good night of sleep. After experiencing the hotel in Paris, Prague and Marseille, I’m looking forward to staying at Mama Shelter in another city.”

    Good stay

    “We have been staying at Mama Shelter for many, many years. It is still a good and clean hotel, but certain aspects are less good today than they used to be. Our room was ridiculously hot from the heating system, and it was not possible to lower the temperature. We were forced to switch it off and open the window, however that meant that cigarette smoke from the terrace below our room came in through the open window. Mama Shelter's famous lavish breakfast is still very good, but not as good as it used to be. The bacon was a an inferior quality and the coffee was only luke warm.”

Restaurant is great - great food - nice staff - knowledgeable Front office - some staff are really helpful and knowledgable - some staff the opposite. if you make a mistake in the final bill and you initially charge 120 euro too much. and the guest identifies the mistake.. . Correct AND apologise !! Reservation: if you make a mistake in making a reservation (wrong date), and the guest detects is ... correct AND apologise. !!”
