We got a different room than we booked, which looked horrible and wasn't what we asked for. Owner/ receptionist was rude and not helpful. We arrived late at night so we had no choice but to stay, otherwise we definitely would have left.

We enjoyed our stay at El Kennaria because it was centrally located, a block from the square with lots of opportunities for bargaining and shopping. Several museums were within walking distance. The second room we had was newly furnished and quite nice. It was quiet and cool when we needed it to be. A good breakfast was included. The staff... More

Took a cooking class teached by Adil and it was absokutely amazing! A hands-on approach, with tips & tricks on how to cook the perfect couscous! Highly recommend to anyone who wants to have a great experience and learn about traditional morroccan cuisine.

After viewing a number of Riads on arrival to Marrakech, we (I was accompanied by my mum and two children) stumbled upon El Kennaria. The rooms upstairs had air conditioning. No.16 was the best from my experience. The hotel was clean and the staff went out of their way to accommodate our every need. More importantly the staff, neighbours and... More

On arriving in Marrakech we found our riad was over booked and as it was late we just settled for the riad next door it was one of the worst places I have stayed. The next day we got up early to find somewhere else and we came across Hotel El Kennaria - such a blessing! The staff were friendly,... More

It is unfortunate that the facilities in the rooms let down this beautifully decorated Riad/hotel smack in the middle of the medina. We used 3 rooms all extremely bare, one had No windows, other had a bathroom with shower opposite handbasin and u need to use sideways and no towel rails, and All had no heating, terribly cold at nights....

Great location (just behind caffe de Fance). Very friendly staff, nice breakfast;.. That about good things. Avoid rooms on grand floor. Some of the rooms are very small, dirty and uninvited. Bathroom - very dirty. You can hear receptionist talking on the phone at night or playing cards with mates in front of the building after midnight. In the morning,... More

This is one of the best hostels I ever been for the value. Excellent location, just 1 min to Jmaa el Fna (the square). The staff was so friendly and helpful. Nice breakfast, teas, chill out terrace, beautiful interior. You have the chance to hire trips to other cities through the hostel for a good price. So good.

After 11days expirience with morroco this hotel was fine. We stayed for 4 nights. Although there were 2 day of national holiday, owner of hotel prepare lunch for guests, because most of restaurants in city were closed. Rooms with windows to the street are noisy a little bit. Place of Hotel is very good. We did not have any issues... More
