Have been there on Feb 2012, friendly staff, clean hotel, but hotel need updating. Very good location it suitated in Guleiz the modern area in Marrackech near to supermarkets, shops and takeaways. Outside the hotel you'll find the tour bus. Not too far from airport. And it is about 15 min walking to Fena Sq.

This hotel is cheap but does not disappoint. It has nice and clean rooms, linens and towels are changed everyday, bathroom has a nice shower with a blow dryer, too. Wifi connection is very good in all parts of the building. My only problem was when the toilet flush broke in the middle of night, they told me the repairman... More

This is a budget place if you want to sleep near the main train station in Marrakech. Rooms are modest, but clean. Staff was helpfull with the night taxi to airport that we needed. Taxi came on time an there was no problem. We couldn't try breakfast becaose of early departure. Wi-fi signal is weak, but you can get a... More

We read several negative reviews about Hotel Amalay but decided to ignore them and experience it for ourselves. Although it's not a modern building at 3 star status it doesn't pretend to be. It is well maintained though and our room was spacious and clean. All of the staff went out of their way to be helpful and were happy... More

This is a good value for money place to stay. The room we stayed in was cleaned every day and the towels changed every day. The Moroccan breakfast was plentyful and filling the only suggestion I would offer would be to present the pastries on a separate plate or to ask if the guest would like them. We found we... More

Great value for money hotel. Our room was cleaned every day. Breakfast was what you would expect in Morocco and plenty of it. Don't expect an English breakfast unless you holiday in England. Safe area close to restaurants and shops. Someone on duty in reception at all times. We would certainly stay here next year.

If you want 4/5 star service then you should book into a 4/5 star hotel and pay the 4/5 star prices. I stayed at Hotel Amalay with my daughter and found everyone very friendly. As for someone saying it is in a 'dodgy area' I don't think it is. I have stayed in places a lot worse than here. As... More

Its hard to say good things about this hotel, I think the only thing I can say I liked about it was the fact it was so close to everything, and the tours they offer were good. its in a dodgy area I did not feel safe at night in the area, I have never ever met a more rude... More

I paid an agency for two nights. Upon arriving at the Amalay Hotel a stone faced female demanded two nights cash. She was quickly joined by another female and a male bouncer all of whom were demanding I pay cash for my agency (PAID) booking. In the end I said "Call The Police" in Arabic. Absolutely dreadful. No light at... More

If people want 4 or 5 star quality, they should pay more. I stayed there for a week this month and while not everything was perfect, I was quite happy. POSITIVES 1. The room was fine. It was at the back and a little dark but there were no smells and it was quiet. 2. There's Wifi on every floor... More
