“Decent group hotel, wouldn't choose to stay here though”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 weeks ago

A nice hotel with spacious rooms and a nice pool in a modern part of the city. The staff were reasonably helpful and the lobby amazingly furnished with traditional Moroccan furniture (slight feeling of faded glory...). The pool area was nice - even if it was left flooded by a puddle for 2 days.

Unfortunately the restaurant leaves much to be desired. Staff weren't keen to help and if you arrived late your chances of finding a clear table (or getting one cleared even when you sat at a dirty one) were slim. Far better to get a taxi into the old town and eat out there in the evenings.

On our first visit I left a bag in my room. On our return we asked and having repeatedly been told they had to bag had not been found the chief housekeeper (helpful) found it - we witnessed here telling off a cleaner who had not 'bothered' to hand it in at the time. Probably best to lock important stuff in your bags or the room safe.

Wifi in the lobby and on 1st floor but no higher (despite what they say). Pretty fast once you get connected - may take a couple of attempts.

If the aircon doesn't work/you have no towels (3 rooms out of our group's 11), do not fear. Asking at the reception got a very quick response from helpful staff.

Overall a decent group hotel for the beginning and end of our trip up to the Atlas but wouldn't choose to stay here if I was spending a whole week in Marrakech.

Room Tip: One side has nice view of the pool, the other of the train tracks and wasteland (atmospheric!)..take...

We stayed here on our girls holiday with a baby with us.
Very welcoming staff amazing interior design.
Nice and quiet to relax after a crazy day out exploring. Breakfast was a bit repetitive which made it boring apart from that I don't think there's a bad thing to say. Located in a very good area easy access to airport and trains station. Not far from the city centre. All staff members where amazingly helpful. Definitely will recommend it. Thank you for making our experience in Morocco amazing

Rooms have terrible bathrooms, be warned. The plumbing is atrocious, and you'll be lucky to find a shower that doesn't have either a broken towel rail or a ceiling that looks as though it's about to cave in because of the leak from above. At least two out of the four rooms we had also smelled of sewage.

Breakfast is terrible. We didn't try dinner.

That said, the swimming pool is lovely and the spa is also a great experience.

Bottom line, if you can put up with a rubbish room then the rest of it may be worthwhile.

Good luck!

We were staying at the RM up the road so only came here to use the pool. The place was deserted - didn't see any residents all day! Very peaceful! There is a supermarket next door for drinks and snacks

Morocco and much of North Africa, Except Egypt and Mauritania are notorious for their lousy service, particularly at hotels, but this hotel is truly an exception. The price was very reasonable - almost shockingly cheap and the room was nice. They actually gave me the King Sized bed I asked for, unlike most hotels that insist on putting two twin sized beds together. The bed itself had somebody elses hair in it, but this was the only real negative. The staff was very accommodating and dare I say, you could even call them friendly! Again, this is shocking to me because of the regularly horrible service you get in Moroccan Hotels! I very highly recommend this hotel because it has an awesome location! It was very easy to get to, they actually gave me the wake up call at the right time both nights I stayed there and they even smiled at me when I came in and left. I am certain that I know where I will book the next time I go to Marrakesh. I wish they had hotels like this all over Morocco, if they did, they would put the other hotels out of business in no time.

Room Tip: This is a fantastic value as a hotel. Just don't eat there. When you go to Marrakesh, you should...

I stayed in this hotel on 6 october and on 12 october on the 4th and the 5th floor.
The interior of the rooms and the hotel are dated and old fashioned and it would be time for a fresh decoration.
Service is poor and my impression is that it is a moneymaking touristplant.....
I tried a dish in the restaurant, brochettes of fish.....it was terrible.....
I payed 10 euro for a taxi from the airport, but had to pay 15 euro for a taxi from the hotel to the airport, while asking what is the difference, it was the extra costs for reservation of the taxi by the hotel, the staff said....easy earned money.....
My personal opinion is that this hotel is just another big building with a lot of rooms, but without warmth and heart....
I would not recommend it to my friends and asociates.
Keep looking and find a place where value for money is still the standard.

Room Tip: rooms are more or less the same, balcony with a view on the swimmingpool.
