Because we booked a last minute, we quickly searched and found a nice deal online at Riad Mabrouk. It turned out to be a worthy choice!
The hotel is located only 1 minute away from the famous and wonderful Jamaa el-Fna place (the inhabitants call it the "Big Square"). For us it was perfect, but for people who need total silence in order to get some sleep, it might be less attractive. After a whole day walking it is so nice to come back to your hotel, freshen up a bit and go out again any time you like!
The room we got was not big but not small either, just normal sized. The interior is very pretty; all the small details and decorations make it a colorful and cosy place to stay in. The room gets cleaned and tidied up every day. In our case, we opened a window and watched the big crowds flow through the streets. As mentioned before, it can get a bit noisy (until 12pm), but for us this wasn't a problem at all.
Breakfirst was included: if you are a sweettooth, you will love it! Nice Moroccan tea, jus d'orange, small pancakes, sweet bread and a croissant. They vary the breakfirst a bit every day. We also had a lunch and diner once. It is somewhat expensive in comparison with other places, but surely not overpriced.
The staff is very polite and is willing to assist you with almost everything. For example, because we payed a bit too much for the taxi from the airport to the hotel, the man from the security made sure we used taxi's that were fairly priced. Everyone speaks basic English, so communicating is no problem. A special thanks for Hassan, Saliha and Hanan for answering all our questions and helping us out with making the best of Marrakech!
