“Relaxing and calm”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

Albakech House is very well presented, the rooms are comfortable and adequate, the communal areas are traditionally moroccan and welcoming. The best part of our stay was sunbathing by the pool and the breakfasts. The pool and gardens really makes the place and provides a peaceful relaxing place to read and sunbathe. The breakfasts were great with fruit, pastries, bread, coffee, freshly squeezed orange juice, yoghurt etc all included in the price. We ate breakfast sitting outside on tables in the garden by the pool every morning which was wonderful. There is a helpful driver that takes you into town when you'd like during the day and he also drove us to the airport when we left.

The drawbacks were mainly due to lack of information on things to do in the area. Since they only provided breakfast (unless you wanted to book food well in advance) there was no information provided on where to go nearby to eat dinner or lunch. Obviously you can go and explore which is what we did but it would still have been useful for some local recommendations. There is a shopping centre nearby with a supermarket in it which is useful although no fridge in your room to keep any food/drinks.

Overall we really enjoyed our stay as it was very relaxing which was what we were looking for but if you want more in the way of information and/or entertainment this may not be the place for you. The fact that it was located a short distance outside central marrakech wasn't really a problem as this is made clear on the website when you book. It was also definitely value for money.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony overlooking the pool.

Me and my husband stayed in this wonderful hotel 4 nights. We usually spend 1 or 2 nights every 2 or 3 months in Marrakech and this was our most comfortable stay in the city ever. Room was beautiful with pool view , everything worked well, hot water, aircondition, TV .
All team members were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast delicious.
Very nice surprice was the free transfer which we could use.
We picked the hotel because of its location , its just right around the corner of the Pacha Marrakech night club , where we spent saturday night.
I had to catch evening flight back to London, but Mr. Adam, the manager, let us keep the room even little longer then the official check out time, and after we could stay by the pool till late afternoon when our taxi arrived. It was absolutly perfect and very comfortable. I will recommend Albakech hotel to everybody who will want to enjoy relaxing holidays in Marrakech , avoiding busy Medina.
When we will be in Marrakech for more than 1 or 2 nights, we will stay in Albakech house for 100% again . Thank you all for your hospitality and great holidays. Best regards Zuzana

Room Tip: our was no. 7 and was very nice

We had a great stay at Alba Kech. The hotel is a boutique style - something like 15 rooms - and the service is both personal and excellent. The main area is similar to a Riad, high ceilings with a marble fountain and a great atmosphere. The rooms are quite large and high ceiling, either in the 'house' or looking over the swimming pool - which is a good size, lots of sun. It is outside of Medina, so dont expect to walk out the door to the Souk, and there are vacant lots around it - but it feels like a real oasis and the hotel provides a very quick and convenient car transfer both ways (always there when we wanted it) which is just 5 mins drive from the centre. We really wanted a pool/sunbeds for our teenage kids, and Alba Kech had the feel of a Riad and the pool, plus a great manager and staff. They organised tours at a good price and short notice. Well recommended...!

We were so lucky to Stay in this charming hotel! After the hectic an noisy Marrakech this is the perfect place to stay. We are a young couple and for us the place was very romantic! How nice were people who are working there, you can not even describe it! The rooms were authentic and new, very clean and incredibly beautiful! But the greatest thing in this hotel is the owner Adam! He is such a friendly, helpful and just an amazing man! Thank you so much! We are definitely coming back in September .

Fantastic accommodation and always a helping hand for transfers. Host Adam knows his way around Marrakech and found us restaurants exactly to our liking. He can do a golf tour and I would not hesitate to go back next time in Marakech.

Little gem of a hotel - very welcoming, relaxing and quiet. Nothing is too much trouble from the staff - ALL lovely and happy people. Great breakfasts - tasty and plenty. Ideal location too - we were so relieved to be away from the medina during the day but took the free shuttle in whenever we wanted to go in. Great advice from staff as to where to eat, places to see, souks to visit etc. A truly wonderful place to stay and wouldn't hesitate in recommending to others. would far rather this personal little hotel than any 5 star - it has everything you need - lovely pool, sun loungers and towels, good places to eat within walking distance, shopping mall and even staff who will help you learn another language - Italian! Ciao : ))

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the pool are the nicest

Me and my partner stayed at this hotel for 7 nights and it made our trip all the more enjoyable.

Adam the owner was extremely helpful and informative plus the hotel is only around a 10/15 minute drive from the Medina. The hotel also provides a free shuttle service daily.

Would come back to this hotel, all the staff are very friendly and hospitable.

Some reviewers say that the location is not great but we felt it was a perfect location away from the hussle and bustle of the Medina.

The weather was also excellent for our stay in February with some days reaching 28 degrees so we got some colour on our cheeks!
