“Good friendly value for money hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

Good value for money when I booked. Stayed 7 nights. Comments below influenced by traveling solo. My room on 5th floor overlooking train station was smart and well maintained during stay. Double doors to balcony kept it quiet. Breakfast (6.30-10.30) was okay although lacking variety which would have been good after a few days. Can be enjoyed on terrace. Evening meal option upgrade for buffet was excellent value (£35/7nights) although not used every night. Poolside shared with Opera Plaza Hotel was very good for service; good range snacks/meals (about 2 dozen items). Always felt safe with this hotel.
Other points: A bit less than 30 minute walk approx to Medina although pavement under construction (slow construction I think). From main road (not hotel), taxi 20dh to Medina but 40dh back- maybe poor bargaining by me. ATM machine immediately outside hotel entrance was handy, Money change service in sight of hotel and tourist bus stops around corner. WiFi unreliable but got access via Opera plaza. Reception and general help / information excellent- special thanks to Nordin. If I was returning to Marrakech I would seriously consider this hotel but would also have a look around at other options for value for money.

Room Tip: Having read previous comments here I was prepared to ask for room change if not happy. Did not need...

New hotel, clean and good for a 3 star. A pool to refresh. Very convenient next to train and coach station. Free wifi only in entrance hall. Good enough pool area. Good pizzas served there. Check out prices! Last time I checked at the end of August prices had gone up ridiculously I thought it was an error but when I looked at single room prices it was the same ridiculous amount. I think they change prices one day to the other. It was 29th August and maybe they thought people would pay any amount!

Room Tip: It shares pool with hotel Opera. Breakfast was good at the mini garden next to pool until they told...

we stayed here for 1 night,myself husband and daughter,and have to say that it was really lovely for the price.the young man on reception was very polite and helpful and our room had a veiwover the main stree twith corner balcony,good for people watching. the pool area was lovely,,and gypsy kings wer playing on cd,,although the beer was quite expensive. food in the restaurant was really nice and fresh and hot,we had half board,and we complimented the chef.they had a bar lounge with a singer on if you fancied a drink there,and some people just sat around the pool on beds as it as really warm. all in all we would definatley use this hotel again,and its great position near to supratours is ideal for us,as our main destination is always agadir. well done hotel RED

For a three star hotel this definately has elements that would be provided from four and five star hotels but at same time 3 star elements included.. The customer service, cleanliness in all areas of hotel and the swimming pool area are five star for me(I have stayed in five star in Dubai and this pool was better). The location is really good as there is a lot of top quality morrocon restaurants near by, plus your American franchises McDonald's and KFC are right opposite the hotel, pizza hut is a 10 minute walk... You also have a number of dessert shops nearby. Taxis are easily accessible around the hotel area, don't pay more than 20 dhirams for a 5 seater and no more than 60 for a seven seater if you are going jamah el finah, where the atmosphere is better in the evening, taxi drivers do try to con and start there prices from a ridiculous 150 dhirams, tell them 60 dhirams (for a 7 seater) and walk away, then they will agree. I suggest when returning from the square, take the horse and carriage, its beutiful and dont pay more than 60 dhirams for 6 ppl on one carriage. The hotel rooms are limited but very clean and get cleaned once a day for you, you get two towels, air conditioning, double or 2 single beds, tv, bidet, toilet shower, pretty much three star for me, when it comes to the room.. Staff is very helpful, they always are ready to help, will ring anyone for you from reception desk at no extra cost. You need to be responsible for your belongings, make sure they are locked away when you go out, as there is a warning in the room. I never used the restaurants in the hotel, apart from watching the man u V Chelsea game, only had a drink so can't comment :). There is a masseuce available within the hotel, pool table, wifi in lobby area and bowling alley around the corner. Besides the hotel we did the essaouira excursion which is two hours away from Marrakech, it is Beutiful, they pick you up from the hotel at 8am and drop you back off for 7pm, in essouaira you get more markets and a day on the beach. We paid 900 dhirams for 6ppl, which is 150 per person so you can negotiate a good price depending on your haggling skills, he originally wanted 300 per person. If you want to do quad biking, I suggest do it while your in essouaira than Marrakech as it is much better cause you ride through the beach and better track, and you get much better pics, we paid 700 dhirams altogether for 6 ppls each with their own quads.. Overall hotel is defo worth it, cause we paid £313 (£250 of this was flight) per person (3 rooms altogether each with twin beds) for 4 nights including flights with Ryanair, that includes baggage fee (I believe that is a bargain price for this hotel)... I hope you find this useful

I don't understand the recent negative reviews of this hotel.
The room was clean, pleasantly furnished with flat screen TVs and (very necessary) air conditioning. The staff were extremely helpful, particularly reception staff for whom nothing was too much trouble. The self service breakfast included hot and cold options as well as the usual continental fare and it varied slightly from day to day.
Our room was at the front of the hotel, opposite the railway station and overlooking a busy road into Marrakech. Although it was noisy when sitting on the balcony, it was a great place to watch the world go by. The noise was completely shut out when the double doors were closed at night.
I would thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Marrakech. My only problem was the heat. It was 48 degrees on the day we left (9th Aug). That'll teach me to go to Morocco in August!!

Hotel was fine for average place, breakfast limited, said it had a bar but couldn't get a drink at 11pm when returned after dinner. Pool bar service was appallingly slow - 40 mins for a drink and pool ran out of towels. But quick and easy to city centre. Good for a basic stay for a couple of nights
