“good mordern and clean. Helpfull staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2009

OK we picked this hotel because it was part of a main and popular hotel chain in Morocco. It was only built last october and they are still working on an extension which is 30 yards away linked by a overhead walkway. The location is not too far from the airport. About 20/25 mins away (even less going back to the airport from hotel if you take the airport shuttle bus, as the hotel is towards the end of the bus' route on the return). it's located what I would say northwest of the main city at a distance of about 3.5-4 km. There are 2 well known landmarks nearby; the main railway stn/Garre (the new one) and the theatre royal. The airport shuttle bus does not stop directly outside the hotel but if you arrive late at night like we did and if you ask the nice driver politely he will take a slight diversion of his route to drop you off outside (I was amazed at that!). As for the hotel; clean, modern, huge, nice outdoor swimming pool, hints of traditional moroccan architecture. The room; we had a triple room which was basically a double room but with 3 single beds in it. .That meant that there was limited space to walk around in the room. the room was clean and modern, had a balcony overlooking the pool/patio. Word of warning... the beds are hard and stiff. If you are not used to this then you may not have a good sleep. the shower is of a walk in type. The way the floor is made (slopping the wrong way) meant that the water would come out into the main part of the bathroom. The hotel reception keep the TV remotes with them because they say ppl steal them (can't see why!) you have to ask for it from them and rtn it when you checkout. The A/C is also controlled by remote which they also didn't provide (it was off, but not bothered as temp. was about 18/19 cent in the morning and night). If you get breakfast with your rate then you will not be dissapointed. A good selection of rolls, crossaints, fresh cut fruits, juice's, cut salami, olives etc. The hot food on offer is a flat bread type a bit like a indian paratha (forgot what moroccans call it but it begins with "M"). also there are boiled eggs (not fried) aswell as tea and coffee. Overall it was a pleasant stay and would come again. For convenience there is a fairly large supermarket right next door (but looks as if it is part of the same building) and in the new train station which is less than 10 mins walk away there is a KFC and McDonalds. Should also mention that that the rooms come with a small fridge, so you can buy drinks and water and chill them in your room.

We booked our stay for 3 nts from 12 october till 15 october.

Finding the hotel was an adventure and I want to share it:

We arrived in Marrakech with a rented car from Casablanca and with the address on the voucher we found the avenue Hassan II but not the hotel; on the way I saw other hotel from Ryad Mogador chain and ask them about the position of Gueliz, luckly I had a map and they pointed. Back in the car looking for but again no hotel; I called on the phone number on the voucher but wrong number...we where next to Train Staiton, I sow other Ryad hotel, Opera so I asked them again where exactly is the hotel and they told me that is a new hotel next to Aswak Assalam Supermarche and oh my god I passed few time without seeing, but the key was to look for a traditional morroco gate over the entrance.
Back again and we found the entrance !

Of course that we did not sow the hotel because no english inscription, no flags, nothing like a hotel entrance.

We c/in and they gave us the card key so up to our room but when the boy opens the door oh what a surprise: the room was allready occupied ! He applogise, close the door and leave us running down to the reception. He returns with 3 cards to choose a room, so we choosed, but big mistake: all 3 rooms where with street view. During the night we could not sleep at all due to the traffic (the avenue is one of the exits to Agadir and Essaouira). Also in the morning there was a lot of water under the basin.
many thanks to the receptionist that changed the room next morning without a problem into a room with pool view-on the other side of the hotel.

So:

Advantages:
-new hotel;
-medium rooms (A/C, refrigerator, safe) and clean bathrooms; our second room had even bath.
-nice pool;
-big lobby
-fresh fruits on breakfast
-nice services

Minus:
- the hotel is far from the city center, almost at the exit of town
-difficult to find without a logo on the front of building
- all lifts out of order durind our stay.
-breakfast only with ham cheese and egs with a lot of flyes over them
-very noisy rooms (those with street view) and our first room had no bath or shower cabin, only a shower hanging from wall
-hotel built in rush, with no attention for details
-problems with draining in bath
