The AlbaKech House is an unparalleled, villa-styled hotel and is perfectly situated in a newly developed tourist area, and it's about 10 minutes away from the airport, the medina (old town square, main town of Marrakech) and the new town. But, the hotel offers a free shuttle service that can drop you off at these places. Timings are within reason. As soon as I checked out of the airport, a driver was sent by the hotel to collect me.
My room was delightfully decorated and extremely spacious. The hotel has its own hamman, and I can definitely recommend the massage as well. It was an absolutely, essential pleasure after a hike up the mountains to the waterfalls, in Ourika Valley.
Just across the road from the hotel, are plenty of fast food outlets and restaurants, a shopping mall and a supermarket for convenience.
The owner Adam is extremely knowledgeable of the area and is particularly attentive. The AlbaKech House staffs are amazing, extremely friendly and helpful, and they couldn't do enough for me. They are able to speak English, French and Arabic. Adam prides himself on providing both a personal and outstanding service.
This lovely gem of a hotel is a sanctuary to escape to and would definitely appeal to all types of tourists, and my only regret is not staying longer!
