“Average hotel at an average price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

My partner and I stayed here for one night in October before catching our flight home. The room was large and clean but there were stains on the carpet and ants in the bathroom. The bed was massive and the storage space was generous.
As other reviewers have stated, the hotel is in the new town about a 30 minute walk from the main square and near some nice bars / cafes (and McDonalds / KFC if you are so inclined).
The chap on reception was friendly enough with decent English but the lady was somewhat surly.
There was no safe in the room so we asked for use of the safe deposit box which was basically an envelope held under the reception desk.
The only real niggle with the room was the shower whose temperature fluctuated whilst in use and the length of time it took the water to drain away.
We only sat by the pool (which seemed to be used by the pool attendant's family) which is very small but probably quite welcome after a hot day's sightseeing. No signs of life at the poolside bar.

Me and my wife have been at this hotel 2 times, one week each time. Its a good hotel for a nice price. Good costumer service, clean and a nice staff. Its also in the middle of the center. The breakfast isnt something to celebrate for but its good enough. I would recommend this any day!

Very good location - busy location- walkable to medina but not overly noisy and we had a room at the front. Lots of restaurants nearby. Hotel is clean, room quite a good size- breakfast ok but basic. No kettle or hair dryer in room. Non existent bar even though notice at front says bringing your own food and drink in is strictly forbidden! Door staff eyed up carrier bags possibly containing hidden water or alcohol! Roof top pool small but we always got a sun bed. Towels are provided.
Worth the money but don't expect luxury.

We came to Marakesh for 1 night from Agadir. We hired a car and drove up.

This hotel for the money was really good. The rooms are big and clean. The hotel is very quiet considering it is on a main rd. They have parking for cars and they keep an eye on it.

The lady at reception could be a lot nicer. She didn't smile or welcome us or anything.

The breakfast was enough. The bread was fresh and the fresh Oj was delicious.

The pool on the roof is really nice. I read reviews saying the pool was cold. We were all swimming.

Had a lovely stay here.

We stayed for 6 nights in August 2013. Very clean and large rooms (ours had a balcony). Breakfast not much selection. Didn't use the restaurant in the evening (pretty basic) as plenty of more attractive restaurants close by. Location for us was perfect close to new shopping area, approx 30 mins walk to Jemaa el Fnaa square or 20 dirhams (if your lucky) by taxi. No bar in hotel but Acima large supermarket nearby (approx 10 min) walk has a reasonable selection of wines for apero's. Rooftop pool very welcome but pretty cold even in August smallish deck area around poolside but vacant loungers available on each of our visits. Hotel staff very helpfull.
All in all highly recommended and excellent value.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

We stayed at the hotel for 4 nights in August 2013. The hotel was nice and clean and worth the money we paid. The staff were very nice and helpful and always gave us good advice when we asked about sightseeing and excursions and even provided with a map marked with the tourist hotspots. We booked the Atlas mountain tour through the hotel which was an amazing experience and must see. There was no safety deposit box in the room...however when my husband enquired about it ttwice, they brought us up a safe to keep in the room which was very helpful.
The rooftop pool looks very nice and clean...the pool itself was really cold so no one was hardly ever there.

The hotel is a 20-30 min walk from the square. We walked it once and got the horse and carriage ride back which was really nice. After that we went by taxi which was 15-20 dirhams. The square is an experience not to be missed, especially at night when it is packed out and bustling with food stalls, however we didn't eat there. The souks behind the square are full of beautiful things and good bargains, but you have to haggle good and proper in every single shop which can get very tiring towards the end.

Our Overall experience of Marrakech was really good...the morrocons are very kind and helpful people. We felt safe at all times.
