This is a large, modern hotel, in the "new" part of Marrakech, well away from the hustle and bustle of the medina.

There's also a plentiful selection of local buses that travel between the railway station and the central Place Foucauld, next to Jemaa El Fna. Otherwise it's easy to get taxis. It probably takes about 30 minutes to walk to the central medina, which can be an enjoyable stroll and will help to get your bearings. The hotel is especially good for first-time visitors, who may not wish to risk booking a place within the confusing maze of streets and alleys which constitute much of the old city.
