Firstly this 'Maison d'hôtes' is NOT near the town of Ouarzazate. We do not know whose fault this is but it is 50km from Ouarzazate in the Marrakech direction so bear that in mind when booking. The village is called Tisselday. There are signs for Irocha on the roadside on both sides of the village. Being so far away from... More

We spent two nights in this faboulous place and enjoyed the hospitality, calm atmosphere and great food. Lovely terrace, flowers and a clean swimming pool. Also liked the lit up cabinet of fine Moroccan art objects and the box at the reception desk for tips for the personel. Climbed up to the kasbah on top of the hill and collected... More

Throughout our week traveling outside Marrakesh, we chose not to make any reservations in order to see the available rooms and negotiate prices. We found a lot of hotels websites and tripadvisor pictures were deceiving. We were surprised with this lovely hotel. We negotiated a little to lower the price and we ended up taking the last two rooms. We... More

Irocha is very much a manifestation of Ahmed's wonderful personality - generous, interesting and committed. It is a glorious place to stay. The rooms and public spaces are all attractive, comfortable and well-maintained, the food delicious, the staff delightful and the setting dramatic. But, more than anything else, it is Ahmed's wish to share the beauty and the fascination of... More

For us the pros outweigh the cons… our stay of nearly a week to relax and recover from a busy time was ideal. Pros - property is in a unique position overlooking a valley that hypnotizes, it has plenty of different areas to enjoy, lounge/dining room/terrace are great, pool is perfect maintained to a 24-26 degrees C temperature and very...

My family and I stayed in this wonderful little hotel for three nights, and it remains one of my best memories of our travels to Morocco. Although hard to find, getting there was half the fun! We arrived late at night as we took an incorrect turning. Despite this, all the staff stayed awake and were ready to greet us... More

We stayed here for 1 night on our way from the Desert Camp to Marrakech. Our rooms were decent for spending a night, but small if you have a 3rd person. The shower gas heating needs some attention,since we got extremely hot water at the beginning and had to wash the soap off with cold water in the night :-)... More

This is a cosy hotel in the small town of Tisselday, around a 3 hours drive from Marrakech. We had a nice dinner and breakfast here on the way from Sahara Desert to Marrakech. We enjoyed a nice hot hammam at the hotel and I even had a morning hike to the Kasbah at the top of the mountain to... More

This is a hotel in the middle of nowhere that will take your breath away. Close to the Atlas mountains with a view thats amazing this hotel is a must! Great service, cosy rooms, good food and so peaceful! I loved everything about it and would love to go for a longer period of time.
