Mama Shelter

Last updated: 30 December, 2023

Set amongst the tree-lined Prati neighbourhood, Mama Shelter’s unorthodox style is courtesy of designer Benjamin El Doghaili’s mish-mosh of colours, patterns and textures.

After a day of touring, take a break in one of the hotel’s 217 spacious rooms or get right down to pampering at Mama’s Baths with pool, steam room and sauna. The hotel’s main anchors are the rooftop bar and ground-floor indoor Winter Garden restaurant – next door is a pizza restaurant ‘La Pizzeria’.

It’s an easy walk from the hotel to St. Peter’s Square, the Vatican Museums and the Cipro Metro Line A to many of Rome’s main attractions.

Surrounding area

Situated just outside the Vatican City limits, it’s a welcome retreat from the noise and chaos of more tourist-laden areas of Rome.

One of the safest neighbourhoods in the city, walkable Prati with its elegant palazzi, is well-stocked with a variety of authentic restaurants and pubs, as well as luxury shops and boutiques. Close to two metro stops: Ottaviano and Cipro, the hotel is well-connected to many of Rome’s bucket-list destinations.
