This is a newly built hotel which is approx 1/2 mile from the train station located away from the the attractions and on a very busy and noisy road. Its a lovely hotel with very friendly staff. We stayed on a half board basis, the food was very good indeed and well presented, compliments to the chefs, there is no alcohol served in the hotel.
Our room overlooked the pool area, we are so glad it did not overlook the road as that would have spoiled the experience. The room was very clean with towels and sheets changed daily, the bed was large but very hard.
The hotel was empty of people, I do not know why but it may be due to the time of year. The hotel appears to be a business hotel, it lacks entertainment and atmosphere and is really too far to walk to the old market square. However you can get a taxi for less than a fiver each way.
One surprise was that we had to pay local hotel taxes on arrival, this amounted to approx £3 per night, this was not mentioned when we booked with the travel agent.
There is nothing attractive surrounding the hotel, it is located in an industrial area, I would only therefore use it as a base for traveling. There is a supermarket built under the hotel.
Marrakesh is a very large busy city, the currency is the dirham and the cost of items is around the same as Britain, so don't bother going to look for leather good bargains etc.
Marrakesh is an interesting place to visit on a short term basis. A visit to the Old Square Market is a must to sample local culture but be prepared to be mithered for your money, it can get too much and put you off shopping. Its not suitable for children.
