The hotel is conveniently just 20 seconds walk from Djeema El Fna square, yet it is a suitably calm a relaxed atmosphere to escape the hustle and bustle. Sure, the building isn't in perfect condition, but it is kept completely clean and tidy. And for what you get, including breakfast and unbeatable location, the prices are excellent value. The guys...

The hotel itself is pretty good for the price and especially the location. However, they refused to give a room to a muslim husband and his wife without proof of marriage. The couple wasn't Moroccan, yet they discriminated them because of their religion. In contrast: non-muslim guests however got rooms with how many partners they wanted.

The riad itself is in an excellent location to all of the action - just off of the Jemma al Fna square. And I've not stayed in other accommodations in Marrakesh, so this review should be taken with that in mind. Four of us stayed three nights during Christmas in a four-person room on the third floor. The atmosphere in... More

We stayed here for a week and loved it. The location was fantastic, literally seconds away from the main square. The staff were friendly and the breakfast on the rooftop terrace was lovely in the sun :) Really lovely little riad that is well worth a stay

Before booking I did some research on the hotels in Marrakech and as we wanted to have a close-to the center hotel in a traditional riad, we booked us in Hotel Cecil: We stayed there for 4 nights, as we booked an airport transfer from the enterprise which Hotel Cecil recommends on the homepage we were picked up directly from...

I absolutely loved this hotel, I stayed here with my fiance and I was a little worried that it was a bit too cheap but it was awesome :-) we booked a room with air conditioning but our first room didn't have it, this wasn't a problem and we were moved to another room, the air con is definitely worth...

Brilliant value, friendly service, great location. Opted for air con which suited me personally. Couldn't be better for being close to all the action. First visit to Morocco and the staff put up with all my stupid questions helping me through my trip. Even when we checked out they let us use all the facilities before airport transfer.
