Mama Shelter


Istanbul is a city who gathers 1000 years of history and the meeting of two civilizations. If you have a taste for adventure and discoveries, you won’t regret this destination. To enjoy the most of your stay on the Bosporus without getting caught in tourist traps, you can rely on MAMA. She knows the place very well.

MAMA says let’s eat

You like us, for sure, but you want to try another restaurant ? You will find all the typical Turkish meals combined with a gastronomic savoir-faire at Flamingo or Munferit, or again Yakup 2, Lokal, Morro, Ara Cafe, Big Chefs, Kantin, Savoy, Cuppa, Journey...

MAMA says go out

If you feel like having a drink in one of the wonderful streets of the city, you can get to the Flamingo. If you rather are in a rooftop mood, just try the 360° and of course, the MAMA SHELTER. Besides, the Nardis Jazz Club or the Araf Café will fulfill live music lovers.

MAMA says educate yourself

You want to stay in your room enjoying the design by Starck? We understand, but do not forget to go and discover the city. Istanbul is famous for being the realm of thousand years of history. So many stories are written on every wall and on every people’s faces. You may love to visit St Sophia, the bazar, the archeological museums or Istanbul Modern, the city is full of surprises for every tastes.

MAMA says let’s shop

Are you looking for something very typical, or something new ? Don't miss our shop ! But your should also definitely try the Grand Bazaar and its 4000 shops! But we warn you, you’ll get best prices only if you negotiate.

MAMA says don’t miss

The Topkapi Palace will certainly amaze you. It is located over the Golden Horn, Marmara and the Bosporus. If you are looking for something less usual, try the Yerebatan. Finally, you can save some time to take a cruise to the Prince islands and take a bath in Turquoise water of the Marmara Sea.
