This hotel was excellent and the staff could not be more helpful. Very enjoyable. The rooms were spacious and clean and the hotel was in a great location. It represented great value for money and our whole party enjoyed our stay.

Great Experience

The hotel is very well located, close to places of interest, good transport and many activities. The rooms have good space and the attention was excellent. I think they should be a little more careful with the maintenance of the walls, likewise, you should try to paint with a lighter color, since the rooms are usually some dark. I would also put lighting on the space where the security box is located. You need a piece of furniture or something to put bags, since it does not have a closet where you can put your clothes. The facilities in general are very good. It would be good to be informed of the daily activities that the area has, since it is located in Santa Teresa, a tourist place with great activities, and as a tourist it would be good to know them and be able to be part of them.

Good

Customer review rating 4.4/5

Julian Couples - 08/01/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Loved the location, colonial style architecture, interior design, cleanliness. The food was very good, especially the breakfast offering and the pork ribs. Our room was situated over the bar which meant for two of our five night stay very loud music made it difficult to sleep until 1pm. We complained on the second night and the music level was reduced. The bar seemed to be vacant during our whole stay, it felt a little misguided to irritate the guests in the rooms above for the benefit of the handful of people inside the bar. Only other complaint was the dirty outside tables in the morning during breakfast, lots of full ash trays and residue from sticky cocktail glasses. Thanks for a great week!

Excellent vibe

We had a very cool stay. The one drawback was the large amount of mosquitos that flew out of the shower when we turned on the water. I would advise that you run the shower water prior to your guests checking in. Or to add anti mosquito spray in the rooms.

Perfect Stay at Mama Shelter

I had a wonderful stay here in Rio. Great location, lovely food, amazing staff. I would say that my room wasn't the best (#017) as I had to keep my blinds closed being on the ground floor with lots of people walking past - but I was out all day so it wasn't that much of a bother. Next time I would prefer a different room.

Very nice boutique hotel

We moved from a four star hotel in Copabana to Mama Shelter and were immediately taken away by the hospitality of the staff, the unique rooms and layout of the entire hotel. It was very pleasant and we will come back.

Disappointing

Paul A. Couples - 05/11/2019 Confirmed reviews ALL

Love the ambiance and decor. Breakfast was very good. Bed was good. Dog barking every night. Loud music right below our room past midnight on Sat. Room safe was a joke. Anyone that broke into our room could literally pick up the safe and walk out with it. How is that good?

Cozy atmosphere, friendly welcome

Michael E. Couples - 04/11/2019 Confirmed reviews ALL

Mama Shelter is a small artsy hotel with uniquely designed rooms in Santa Teresa up the hill. Getting there from Rio central by foot is definitely doable (and should be done at least once), but be aware it's quite exhausting. Getting there by car, however is definitely a bumpy ride. The young lady with the pink highlights checking us in was very friendly and made us feel at home immediately. We very much appreciated her helpful recommendations and enjoyed the nice chats. Our room (104) was very spacious and individually designed. We liked fact that there were two showers and two wash basins, even though all of them did run off very slowly. The bed was super comfortable. The complimentary waters in the room were very appreciated. The window shutters (in order to get any light in the room) need getting used to, however they perfectly fit the style of the hotel. As for breakfast: the selection was quite small compared to other Accor hotels, however the food seemed prepared with love (e.g. freshly baked bread, juices out of glass bottles with handwritten labels). We feel that is a perfect match to the style and the target guest group the hotel is aiming for. The breakfast room is also used as a restaurant and visited by locals as well. We enjoyed it once in the evening. The area with deck chairs and showers for sunbathing, a foosball table and ping pong and the multiple seating areas throughout the premises created a very cozy atmosphere enabling interactions with other guests. We liked the word plays with "Mama" and the gift shop, we even bought a "Yo Mama" shirt. We did enjoy the Accor loyalty recognition through a room upgrade, welcome cookies and welcome drinks at the restaurant and felt safe and valued throughout our stay.

Very cool and quirky place

Great place and friendly staff. A little noisy at times as we had a room which overlooked the front
