“Comfortable modern hotel in good area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

We stayed in the hotel for 8 nights after deciding our pre-booked Riad wasn't for us. We arrived half an hour after booking online and despite being a few hours early for check in, the room was ready for us on arrival. The bed was massive, a little on the firm side (this seems to be the norm in Marrakech) but very comfortable nonetheless. The room was spacious and clean, with a good sized, powerful shower in the ensuite bathroom. Big TV with lots of channels, and I think 2 channels that were English language, one of which seemed to be a movie channel.

We spent quite a lot of time on the roof terrace which was lovely with a great view, beautiful to watch the sunset from. The pool was very very cold, even when it was quite warm outside (it got up to around 30 degrees Celsius at times) and it was a shame it wasn't heated as it was far too cold to get in, but maybe it's better in the summer. The terrace was a nice area to sunbathe on and get a bit of a tan, something which we couldn't do whilst out and about, as you need to cover up in public.

Breakfast was served between 6 (I think) and 11am so it was nice to be able to get up late and eat breakfast. We took it to our room a couple of times on a tray which wasn't a problem. Breakfast was quite basic but high quality, pain au chocolat, croissant, another sweet pastry, good bread, butter, jam, sliced cheeses and ham, olives, fruity yogurt, boiled eggs, porridge and pancakes, cereal and dried fruit, with strong coffee and fresh orange juice on tap.

The staff were very friendly and helpful, with the reception staff speaking good English (though it's always courteous to at least try and speak a bit of French!)

The area (Guilez) was nice with a lot of good restaurants and shops nearby, very different to the atmosphere in and around the medina, and a lot less hassle.

Overall this is a high quality hotel in a good area of Marrakech, and very good value for money (we paid 50 euros a night for the room and breakfast for 2).

We would definitely go back there if we ever return to Marrakech.

Clean and fairly new hotel in a good location. Large rooms and excellent bathroom. In winter, the heating worked well. Breakfast was good. Restaurants around sufficiently. Baggage was left luggage storage, when we went to Ouarzazate. The bus station is a 15 minute walk and a taxi 3 euros.

This hotel is absolutely superb, situated about 20 mins walking distance from the centre of Marrakech. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms were very spacious and clean. There are not really any negative things I can say about this place. It is certainly one I would recommend and one I will certainly stay at again.

Room Tip: All the rooms are very spacious and the beds are supersized !!!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

I stayed in Hotel Almas for 2 nights in early November. I booked it online for €50 a night. Its location was ideal for me as i was arriving from Agadir on the Suprabus comfort (150 Dirhams). Its about a 15 min walk from the bus depot which is near the train station to the hotel. Check in was fast and the lady who spoke English was very friendly and was able to give me help with directions over the few days.
My room on the second floor was nice. It had a massive king size bed which was comfortable. It was clean however the carpet had been stained by red dye. The TV had one english channel. There was no safe in the room only at check in. There was AC in the room and it was adequate for the time of year.
Breakfast was continental and i thought it was very good as continental goes. There was boiled eggs, moroccan pancakes, some fruit, yogurts and a selection of breads, pastries, cheese and ham. There was also coffee tea juice and water.
I found the location also great because the red bus tour stop no.1 where you could buy a ticket was about a 5 minute walk away. The bus tour for 24hrs was 145 Dirhams. The red bus does two circuits one of the city and the other of the outskirts. You should do both. In the afternoon i used the red bus to make my way closer to the Medina area. Explore around there and Place Jaama El Fna and then i walked back which is a good walk of about 30 minutes. There are plenty taxis also.
After the hustle and bustle of the old city it was nice to return to the quieter area of the Gueliz and hop into the cold rooftop pool to wind down. The Gueliz area is trendy and has plenty shops cafes and restaurants. There is no beer served in the hotel but there is a small Moroccan bar across the road.

This is a great hotel with friendly and helpful staff. There's a rooftop swimming pool too. Breakfast was basic but adequate. There are local restaurants right next door to the hotel so you can enjoy the local experience instead of dining at a tourist trap. Shops and restaurants are nearby. The Medina is only half an hour walk which I did numerous times during my stay. The train station and the SupraTour bus terminal are 10 minutes walk away, the CMT bus terminal an additional 15 minutes.

We stayed at Hotel Almas for seven days. It is a great hotel, especially compared to the price for the room. Rooms are big and clean, beds are extremely comfortable. The breakfast is continental style buffet and it is very nice, just as service in the restaurant and on the front desk. We found hotel's location perfect since it is on walking distance from the medina and train station. The petit taxi will usually charge you around 20dh for a ride from Djemaa el-Fna. There are couple of very nice restaurants near the hotel as well.

Very nice, clean and spacious rooms. Great aircon and a fridge in each room. Some have a little balcony. The breakfast buffet is also generous and fairly varied, at least by typical Moroccan standards.

The location is very convenient for the train and bus station as it's within walking distance.It's a little far from the Medina but that's probably a good thing as it's nice to get away from the hustle and bustle of the bazaar. There's also a little swimming pool on the roof which is a nice relief from the heat.

Very good value and nice place to hole up in for a while.

Room Tip: The rooms without balconies seem to be a little bigger and the balconies just look out on other balc...
