“Went to Sky bar. Didn't stay at hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013 via mobile

We didn't stay at the hotel so can't comment on that. However, we went to the rooftop bar- Sky Bar at the hotel and it was very nice. Very nice view over the city and a very relaxing atmosphere. The service is good-staff are nice and polite and the drinks were nice too- both cocktails and wine. I would definitely recommend Sky Bar.

Booked double room, room was cosy, really good views. Location is excellent. Not very good selection of food, however no problem as rows of restaurants doorstep of hotel. Breakfast again was very good. Fridge was really needed in the heat in the room. Safe in room. So always left all valuable in the same. Staff really helpful, booked us tour guide and transport when we required. Language barrier with a few staff. But got there in the end. Would definitely stay again. Disadvantages really lacks space to sunbathe on roof top and swimming pool with thirsty pigeons not very welcoming!

I checked into this hotel 2/3rds into my holiday from a previous poor experience of another hotel (imperial plaza). This modern hotel is very welcoming, chic, offering beverages during check in. The staff are lovely, the food is very nice and the atmosphere is calm. Mostly everyone speaks English, and is very polite. The room was nice, no complaints other than the fact we booked a superior double room - which we was under the impression it was a small suite . Don't book it its the same as a double room, even when we asked to compare rooms they're virtually the same . Other than that lovely hotel with a sky bar, two restaurants and a pool (yes it does unfortunately house pigeons).

Extremely underwhelmed, not sure what was superior about our superior room, this is a basic 3 star at best. Swimming pool was actually a pigeon pool that we would not use, the filter was full off pigeon feathers!!This hotel is very over-rated. Do not recommend the restaurant either, also very over-rated. Disappointing...

in total 1200 dh was stolen from my boyfriends suitcase, this was on a course of two days. on the first day we noticed 800 dh missing but thought it was merely our miscalculation, however the next day a further 400 dh went missing after carefully counting the amount before we set out. Me and my boyfriend went to speak to the manager about the issue and instead of him to resolve it he began to shout at us calling us liars... He then went in to say the only people who have had access to our room is the cleaner and us... he stressed the fact that the cleaner has been working there for 35 years so she is trusted.....however the cleaner herself looked nothing more than 35 years herself. Instead of sympathising with us we were shouted and the manager walked away from us whilst doing rude gestures. I have never been so disrespected by a manager of a hotel in this way before.

on top of this, our doors did not look properly, the fridge in the room was hot and did not work and the swimming pool was full off thirsty pigeons.

worst hotel experience ever

Not 4 star standard - staff , decor or food

DO NOT STAY HERE

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.
