Mama Shelter

Mama Shelter opened two new hotels last week, one in Istanbul and one in Lyon, and both are really worth a visit.

Mama Istanbul is a living place where all the spaces play the part of diversity, mixing profiles, cultures and the favorite dishes elaborated by the chefs Alain Senderens and Jérôme Banctel, a mix of local and French food. A panoramic terrace, unique in Istanbul, is the privileged space for the curiosity of those who want to embrace the city, to laugh, or simply meditate, but in the meeting rooms there is also a place for the ones who want to think about the great challenges of the future.


MAMA Lyon is also a lively place, where the restaurant will play its own diversifying role, combining profiles and dishes, ensuring that it is worthy of the capital of gastronomy. The bar and its tables will come alive to the thrills of the live stage proving that Lyon is also a friendly and hospitable city.
A stone’s throw from the Place Jean Macé and its metro station that takes you to the Part Dieu railway station, MAMA Lyon is located on a block bordered by three streets, like a triangle. Its entrance is opposite a fenced basketball court suggesting a decidedly urban landscape, a hint of New York or more specifically Brooklyn.
