Expert reviews

“For a nontraditional Los Angeles hotel, you really can’t go wrong with Mama Shelter. The friendly staff was a huge plus, as its infectious enthusiasm set a welcoming tone throughout the property.”

“This French chain of boutique hostels prides itself on attention to detail and its Los Angeles branch, opened in 2016 just off Sunset Blvd, has 70 rooms that all look like something from a Hockney painting, with glorious pastel colours and immaculate mid-century modern furniture.”

Fodors review:

“Even locals are just catching on to Hollywood’s sexiest new property, complete with a rooftop bar populated with beautiful people lounging on loveseats, simple affordable rooms with quirky amenities like Bert and Ernie masks, and a down-home lobby restaurant that serves a mean Korean-style burrito.”

Featured as Fodor’s Choice in Los Angeles.

Telegraph review:

“A fun and funky hotel for a hip younger crowd – Mama Shelter is unbeatably close to Hollywood Boulevard. Eclectic design keeps things fresh and interesting, starting right away in the hotel’s common spaces, which include a lively restaurant, coffee shop and bar.”
