And on sunny days, the rooftop opens for dinner and drinks while you let your eyes wander over a panoramic view of the city. Like a deep drink of dark red, Mama Shelter warms and loosens, satisfies and delights, makes food more delicious and sleep just a little bit deeper. The advantages of Mama Shelter Bordeaux : live concerts, shows, Djs, our boutique, babyfoot, free movies on-demand… The bank card used to guarantee the booking or make the prepayment will be requested at check-in.

Hello, how much is a taxi from the airport to hotel? Thanks
Hello Kelly, From the airport to hotel it is around 40-45€. If it's too expensive you can take a city bus. It’s Line 1, the bus stop is Gambetta and it's 1.45€ per person. Have nice day. Mama loves you.

"We were on a high floor (5) and had a nice city view"
"Eat breakfast somewhere else"
"You might want a room that doesn't directly face the shopping center."
