I visited Hotel Ali in late June this year. I stayed there at the beginning and end of a two week trip. My first stay was in a twin room by myself which had a rather smelly bathroom that had a very small window and no fan. The shower head only had three holes that let water out, it was... More

This hotel is ideally situated off the main square. It is idea for a cheap and cheerful break in Marrakech. It is a very busy hotel with lots of backpackers and large groups of students. The room was really hot and we did not have a window to let the air in, however on request we were given an air... More

I have just made my third visit to this hotel. My first was over 10 years ago. Despite it's faults I have always enjoyed my stay. The staff are friendly and very helpful and the rooms are clean. It's a busy place with backpackers and tour groups continually checking in and out of a crammed reception area which is nothing... More

While staying at the ali it was clear that a major renovation was going on, so the roof terrace and 1st floor public area were all covered in building materials. Some of the people in my group had renovated rooms although they didn't appear to be completely finished. Mine wasn't but was clean and functional. Breakfast was bread rolls boiled... More

Hotel Ali represents excellent value for money in the heart of Marrakech. Rooms are clean and come with en-suite facilities, including soap and towels. Breakfast is basic but adequate. Views from the roof-top are first class. There are dozens of restaurants within a few minutes walk as is the post office. FX facilities - offering some of the best rates... More

The Hotel Ali is what might euphemistically be termed 'a character hotel', and a 'character builder' of all those who dwell within! The surprising number of returnees suggests that the Ali does, in fact, 'grow' on many people after a while. This place struck me as a hybrid between the old Chungking Mansions in Hong Kong and the Hotel Sultan... More

I visited this hotel last week after 3 years and they recognised me then asked after my son ! there is an army of cleaners who work relentlessly to keep the place proper clean. The location is great for getting away from the square as well as experiencing the square. Not sure i thought there had been an upgrade of... More

I stayed at this hotel a few years ago, but only recently joined TripAdvisor. But, I had to write a review about this hotel and their poor food hygiene. I was served a raw egg omelet for breakfast which I forwent. But at the dinner time served beautifully on the roof, the food was less than recognizable and of poor... More

I spent 3 nights at this hotel as part of a tour of Morocco (the hotel was not my choice). The first room I was in was really poor, lights hanging out of the ceiling, shower didn't work and the toilet leaked. However the second and third nights were in a different room and it was much better, of a... More

Stayed at Hotel Ali for 1 night before and 1 night after an Atlas Mountain trek. I guess if it had been really bad we wouldn't have gone back there after the trek! My single room on 1st stay had 3 beds in it which I never really worked out why and second time I had a double bed so... More
