“Gem in the dessert of Marrakech”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

The staff was very helpful with directions. Breakfast is ok. We walked up to the Medina and to a smaller souk about 6-8 blocks from la renaissance. Walked everywhere. Felt safe although when you take 2 streets behind hotel in either direction there are more indiginous Muslims but you are in Morocco. Enjoy the amazing diversity of cultures, bargaining and some of the happiest people on the planet. Cover your legs and be respectful of the culture. But also remember you're not in Kansas anymore. You are a traveler (dig in) not a tourist at a resort. Fun...fun...

The bar is open to non-residents, the roof top bar is lovely. Great for cocktails ( 90 Dinah = £7.50). There is a small pool for a quick dip. It's in the newer part of Marrakech a short stroll to the Plaza where there are a few European shops such as Zara and McDonalds. We hired a taxi from our hotel ClubHotel Riu Tikida Palmeraie its a set price of 150 Dinah in the evening (£12.50) each way.

We visited Skybar on the top floor of the Hotel. It was really beautiful and was clearly a very classy, sophisticated bar. The staff were lovely and it was a great prelude to dinner in a nearby restaurant.

However the drinks were VERY pricey for me- I am a student though so perhaps I am just tight with money? It was fine for a drink or two though

Lovely hotel, boutique style, rooms were really nice, and a good size - plus a balcony!
Roof top pool and cocktail bar were fabulous. Also a bar downstairs where you can watch the world go by.
Good location - nice walk to the Medina. very easy to wave down a cab if need be.
Lovely staff!

Needed three room at last minute for extended family group for one night prior to leaving Marrakech after full week's visit. Obtained three standard rooms for 70 euro each. Clean and efficient. Able to leave luggage in foyer for several hours post checkout (evening flight to London) while we roamed the streets in 43 DegC heat... Staff attentive, rooftop bar and restaurant were excellent for family dinner on last night in Marrakech. Food was very good and reasonably priced. We are used to camping in deserts and isolated places. A comfortable clean room, comfy bed and attentive staff suits us fine. This hotel provided all of the above. Excellent value for the price.

Excellent location for the nightclubs and restaurants of Gueliz and only a 5 minute taxi to Jama al Fana square. The hotel has had a contemporary makeover which works and the standard rooms though not big are stylish and more than adequate. Staff are friendly and helpful,breakfast good variety, but the best is the Sky bar on the 6th floor with panoramic views of the city and the Altlas mountains.Perfect for watching the sun going down with a drink of your choice!

Room Tip: I was in 502 and it had great views of the Atlas mountains.

Very nice and modern hotel. Great location, only a 25 min or so walk to the main square (or a minimal fee taxi journey). Rooms are spacious and clean and the restaurant serves delicious food!

The pool on the rooftop has great views across the city and is perfect for relaxing at the end of the day. A rooftop bar is also available for combining relaxing drinks with stunning views.

Would also recommend a hammam or massage, which is available at the hotel too! (Although much cheaper to get this at a local hammam place rather than the hotel).

The open top bus tour for tourists around all of Marrakech is directly opposite the hotel too, so a perfect location in this respect too.
