I visited three times while on a trip to morkcco and was never dissapointed - the staff were friendly and would try their best to adcomodate us no matter how busy it ws. The breakfast was great as was the free tea on arrival. Beautiful riad and great atmosphere - I love the marrakech rose!

I did not like my stay at the Rainbow Marrakech because I did not like the staff, I would not recommend this place. But that does not mean you will have a terrible experience too. I want to be at least a little objective in this review, so let me preface by saying that this place is good as a... More

The hostel is well located next to the Place Jemaa el fna, but its although very quiet. The staff is friendly they weren't bothered to order taxis. Hicham was kind, he really like to chat with the guests. The rooms are nice, except the room on the roof (the room were we slept) is very tight.

There were a couple of negative things, like on the internet is says that there are towels, but bring your own because there are... More

This accomodation is superb value and in an excellent location, just a few minutes from Jeema El Fna square and therefore close to numerous restaurants, the market and of course the souks. The management were very accommodating and helpful, made us feel very comfortable and offered very good advice on restaurants, trips and prices we should pay in the souks.... More

From day 1 the hospitality has been 110%, Perfect location - 2 mins from the square. Both Hicham and Badar will go out their way to assist you with your travels. Fantastic family atmosphere! Hicham organised a delicious meal for everyone one night. The quality of the food beat all the restuarants anyone had been to. Now officially my home... More

All I can say is good things about this hostel, and as I read some of the awful reviews I start to believe that people have this hostel mixed up with another as I think there may be a few with the same theme or run by the same people. I arrived easily enough as the directions were simple but... More

It's no 5* hotel but what it lacks for in facilities it makes up for it atmosphere! Such a social environment and great to get to know other travelers. We spent a lot of time on the roof terrace where the owner kept tortoises! Sat out there in the evenings chatting with other guests has to be one of my... More
