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

The hotel setting is stunning and well located for shops and bars in Santa Teresa. Breakfast was really good, especially the weekend options. Had a great stay and would stay again if in Rio!

Great cost/benefit ratio

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

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

More than a comfortable bed

Peter S. Couples - 18/10/2019 Confirmed reviews ALL

Mama Shelter was much more than a place to sleep. The spacious facility was a great place to hang out and chill and chat. The staff were attentive and friendly. Food and drinks were tasty and reasonably priced. The breakfast was superb! Oh yeah, the bed was super comfortable

Comfortable “home away from home”

Koen Couples - 15/10/2019 Confirmed reviews ALL

First time we stayed in a Mama Shelter hotel, and most likely not the last. Very much loved the informal and relaxed approach to hospitality. Especially as rooms and all facilities were immaculate (clean and well maintained), the breakfast is an absolute highlight. Minor downside was that our room (the largest option) did not come with the advertised view.

Quirky and different but awsome

It was a great relaxed atmosphere that was welcomed after staying near the coast. Reception was great and helpful and we really appreciated the upgrade!

So trendy it misses the important things

Customer review rating 4.4/5

Punkrebel Couples - 08/10/2019 Confirmed reviews ALL

Hip trendy hotel, but misses the important things: - room had no or few places to keep clothes. Had to keep our clothes in backpack, - few amenities in bathroom, - no system regarding using towels several days in a row which I find not very environmentally friendly, - breakfast was average and many things tasted bland, Hotell lies far away from beaches and major slights.

We loved it, would recommend!

The breakfast was great! I like the fresh fruit and the juice bar... I also like the location of the hotel. Super friendly staff and gave us a great restaurant recommendation.

Satisfied with a couple of exceptions

Malcolm G. Couples - 03/10/2019 Confirmed reviews ALL

Our stay was ok room large and comfortable, good shower (knowhere to put shampoo etc. A shelf would be good!) only 4 coat hangers to hang clothes. Bar closed? Restaurant closed? In a way I was glad bar was closed as it appeared our room was directly above. I know your hotel is supposed to be trendy etc but please don't deny your paying customer some basic requirements.

Romain Couples - 03/09/2019 Confirmed reviews ALL

Really good staff, friendly and very helpful. We had a room far from the bar which was really pleasant as we were really tired and we are thankful to the receptionist for that as our room was originally located just above the club with a DJ set that night. However, our room was very humid and smell really bad humidity. Windows are not sound proof (noise from road and people on the swing late at night). Good cocktails but food price is quite high compare to restaurants close to the hotel even if we had a really good service. Thank you to all Mama Shelter team for our stay!

Beautiful spot— smoking is a real problem!

Customer review rating 4.4/5

Anonymous Families - 28/08/2019 Confirmed reviews ALL

Hi! We love Mama Shelter. There should be a separate area for smokers. Smoke is bothersome to non-smokers not to mention bad for everybody’s health. It’s gross to have a smoking patio right next to the place where dine. I suggest you designate one smoking patio that is in another part of the hotel. Also please bring back feijoada:)
