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.
