This was a wonderful hotel and my only regret is not staying longer. The location is about 5mins drive from the Medina but the hotel offers a free on-demand shuttle service between 10 and 6 I think it is? We paid for a taxi afterhours and it was inexpensive also. We were 2 girls travelling alone and felt safe and welcomed at all times. We were offered peppermint tea on arrival while sorting out the paperwork and always greeted personally when entering/exiting the hotel.
The rooms are large, spacious and authentic-looking and were spotlessly cleaned each day. There was no fridge or tea & coffee making facilities in the room but we were out exploring so often it hardly mattered. You can order soft drinks and tea to the room or the poolside. I also didn’t see an iron or hairdryer in the room but neither did I ask for them so they may have been available. Despite the pool being in the sun during the day it’s very cold, but refreshing!
Just across the road from the hotel is a small mall with shops, fast food outlets and a supermarket for any supplies you might need – occasionally a welcomed change from the hectic medina! The breakfasts served at the hotel were delicious and brought out on a tray specifically for you & were plentiful – we chose to eat outside by the pool each morning in the sun which was bliss. The hotel doesn’t have a restaurant but they made reservations for us on our request at a local restaurant and you can arrange with them in advance for meals to be eaten at the hotel.
We had a hammam at the hotel too and thought they were good value for money and great to try something new (for us anyway) in the comfort of the hotel & conveniently just downstairs. A great hotel and if I’m in Marrakech again I’ll be back!
