Overnight in Mama Shelter, Lyon
Nice room with a few extras - face masks included! Very lively bar and restaurant. We ate at the bar and listened to the DJ. Food fine. Big breakfast/brunch scene in the morning with ample choice. Hotel located in residential area about 20 min stroll from town. Public transport nearby. Hotel has parking underneath which we weren’t aware of until after check-in. Otherwise parking virtually impossible - seems to be lots of cars and little public parking in the area. Overall good choice for a night or two in Lyon.
