Good 6.0
Cool hipster hotel, small rooms
This hotel room is very similar to the Standard Hotel or some of the more "hipster" hotels in the US - very small rooms that focus attention on the vibe of the common areas over the rooms themselves. Our room was very small and the bathrooms were not comfortable but managed to fit the bill for one night. That being said, the location was perfect - right next to a parking garage and mall with a Monoprix (grocery store) and walking distance of main parts of town. The vibe of the hotel outside the room was very cool - lobby bar was packed, good music and great for pics. They have a rooftop bar that was closed during our stay but would be a place people go to for drinks, even if not staying at the hotel. Wifi was great in the rooms and lobby, programming on the tv's was interesting, and they branded everything (soaps, shampoo, etc.).

Hipster hotel in great location.
I would recommend Mama Shelter for someone that is looking for a clean and convenient hotel in a great central Bordeaux location. However, I'll warn that it's a bit unusual in it's styling and atmosphere. As we checked in on a Friday night after 10:00 pm, the restaurant on the ground floor was blasting rap music, which made me a bit worried that my hotel choice would not give me a restful night sleep. But once we got to the room, it was very quiet and very dark and had everything we needed. The tv was one of the best I've used in a hotel - an Apple monitor with a great menu that let you easily select the English channels. They also provided a great Dyson fan that kept the air moving since the air conditioning wasn't chilling the room completely (it was also 100 degrees out). The shower was large, powerful and drained well (which is hard to find in a European hotel). I would say the toiletries could be improved, as could the pillows. Overall, I was very happy with the hotel, especially because of it's central location, making it easy to stop back during the day to rest for a bit before heading out for wine and dinner. Just be ready for a hip and modern atmosphere.

Hot and loud but great location and food.
The room was hot and loud, near the staircase on the first floor. But the staff were friendly and the food was great. Can't beat the location.

Exceptional 10.0
The front desk reception staff was so fantastic! The location was excellent and easy walking access to many tourist sites, restaurants, and shops. We would definitely stay there again or at one of their many other locations.

Nice and friendly hotel in a good loacation
Very friendly and helpful staff. Spacious roomms and good beds. Very tasty food in the restaurant for dinner, good drinks at the bar. Didn´t have time to check out the rooftop terrace, but it certainly was popular judging by the amount of people going there. The only negative is that there was a bunch of homeless people hanging out in the small plaza in front of the hotel the first night - making quite a noise in the morning.
