“Nice Hotel, Mediocre Breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

This was a very nice hotel perfectly situated between my transportation in and out of the city - the train and Supratours. The staff were friendly, the grounds were nice, and the walled garden made you feel like you weren't really in such a crazy city.

My only complaint about my stay was the breakfast. I had eaten the breakfast at the Ibis in Fez, so I was excited to try it again. However, it did not compare. Instead of harira there was the white cream of wheat type soup; the fruit was bad (how can you go wrong with oranges in Marrakesh?), the coffee machine was not functioning, the butter was fake, and pretty much every element was a step down from the breakfast at the Fez Ibis. The staff did their best to make up for it - a helpful waiter tried to compensate for the broken coffee maker, etc.

So I would stay here again but I wouldn't get the breakfast.

Stayed for one nights on business. Good location just next to the train station. The room was rather small but the bed was large and very comfortable and the shower good. The room was also quiet given the city centre location. Wifi was available in the room and worked well. The reception was quick and efficient but service at the bar was rather slow, didn't eat at the hotel. On the whole nothing special but perfectly acceptable for short business visits.

For a real Marrakesh experience, a riad in the medina is essential. For luxury, a resort hotel in the Palmeries is needed. This is neither. Far too far to walk to either old town square, new town still a bit of a hike, taxis will be a rip off, only good point is bus stop outside from square for reasonable price but for confident traveller. Bar is small but nice, although permanently too cold, restaurant has no character, menu is dull and food limited, rooms very plain. Next to busy and noisy main road all night and building site. Definitely needs refurbished before anything more that three stars justified. One of few places in Marrakesh with no character, would put me off completely if I didn't know the city better. Look elsewhere.

Room Tip: Not the main road building sight side

Great little hotel and a very good location if you're staying in Marrakesh. Rooms are adequate and very comfortable. Uneventful in a nice way. Recommend it.
Ideally located just next to the wonderful Marrakesh train station.

Room Tip: Try getting a room with a balcony.
