“Arrogant receptionists and expensive bland food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

We stayed at this hotel for 6 Nights following the purchase of a Groupon Voucher, so got it cheap and did not expect much. The rooms are clean and tidy, although sheets were not cleaned daily. The reception we received was one of arrogance from female receptionists who did not speak and understand English. The hotel did not have any tourist leaflets and information. There is no coffee making facilities in the rooms and no safety deposit box. We handed our passports over to reception and put away £80 cash for emergency in the safety deposit box at reception, but when we collected our passports on the day of our flights the £80.00 has gone. We were not given a receipt for our passports and the money we have put in although this is their policy. We called the tourist police, but as we could not prove the money being there they couldn't really do anything. Friday and Saturday night was unbearable due to the club next to the Hotel, where clubbers were greeted with Moroccan drummers all hours (until 3 am).

Morocco is overpriced and serve very bland food. We were charged £15.00 per head in most restaurants, but the amount of food served was minimal and the quality of meat was poor. The service in all restaurants we ate in was dire and children are not catered for at all.

If you are looking for a family holiday stay away from Morocco. This was our first and last visit to Morocco.

The hotel is fairly new and modern, we stayed for a week and our room being on the side of hotel wasnt noisy at all. The room was really clean and pleasant, could'nt fault it at all. We had a good experience in general. Breakfast was fine also.. For us the location was great well away from the hustle and bustle, near to Supra tours for very cheap air condidtioned coach tours around Morocco, staff where really lovely and and we would definitley stay again. We personally cannot fault the hotel.

I was supposed to spend only one night at this hotel and i end up staying there 3 nights throughout my holidays. Staff of the Reception and Restaurant really friendly, and also nice swimming pool.

I personally don't mind about noise at night but if you do.... asks for a room far away from the night club placed at the ground floor of the hotel

Welcome - excellent. Good English speaking helpful reception. Doorman at entrance. Easy check in and reception so helpful with any enquiries.
Room - think Holiday Inn Express. No frills but clean, comfy and adequate. Clean towels and bedding daily. All corridors clean and tidy.
Restaurant - delicious, reasonably priced meal. Faultless service.
Bar - a bit expensive but no more so than the rest of Marrakech. I think you have to remember that alcohol is a new thing here so it costs a fair bit. £20 for a house wine. £6 for a baileys.
Lounge bar - amazing. I loved this. Mint tea and a shish pipe with a Moroccan band playing next to you.
Location - about a 45 minute stroll to the main square. A nice walk with variable routes. Plan your own journey and ignore the random guides who pop up to show you the way. There was a hop on hop off tour bus that stopped outside the hotel. It was about £12 for 48 hours and we really used this lots. A great way to plan your day.
Pool - lovely area with waiter service.
Overall I would recommend this hotel.

We stayed here for a night before catching a morning flight. We chose it on the basis of being easy to drive to from Essaouira (i.e. not requiring another daunting navigation through Marrakech), near to the airport and it was reasonably priced (~450 dh). Check-in was easy and we got a room on the 5th floor with a private balcony. Room was clean, well-decorated and generally comfortable, although there was a fairly unpleasant smell coming from the bathroom (in contrast to the perfume they pervade the corridors and public spaces with). A downside was that free Wifi was only available in the lobby, paid Wifi (10euro for 24hrs) was available in the room. Breakfast was a buffet with cereal, various pastries and cold meat/salad, coffee was good but it was the only time in Morocco that we had orange juice that wasn't freshly squeezed. It's across the road from the impressive rail station building and a 10min walk to the heart of Gueliz (the new part of Marrakech) - take a petit taxi to the Medina as it's a much longer walk!
