Perfect location with easy access from airport and railway station in a relatively expanding quiet corner of Marrakech. There is a new mall building complex under construction just across the road. You can pleasantly walk to Medina in 25-30 minutes, or take a taxi and insist on running the meter for 10 Dirham's.
Check in was swift apart from reservation issue which should have been covered and paid by my company. I was asked to pay in Dirham's or pay a deposit by credit card or cash till that issue was resolved. For unknown reasons, my active gold credit card was not accepted by cashier. I handed SR 2500 in cash in 5 notes, he dropped them in a shielded area of his desk then held four notes in his hands telling they were only 4 notes, only SR 2000. Also, he showed the envelop with foreign currencies with no more SR! He also assured me that SR 2000 was enough as a credit or down payment. I was ripped of SR 500 (about $150) in a second. Take much care when handing over notes, give one by one counting in audible voice.
Room is spacious and comfortable. There was no kettle. Get your traveller kit if you would need tea or coffee. Electricity plugs are 220 European two pins. I usually have an extension electricity wire to fit my laptop, mobile chargers and kettle. Internet is both costly and weak in the rooms, free but slow in the lobby. Data SIM cards are much cheaper, readily available either from Malls, railway station, airport or city centre.
The room on the ground floor was nicely leading to the beautiful garden full of fruiting trees, fountains and plants from all over the globe; it is a mimic to Majorrelle Park.
Breakfast is a very pleasant satisfying experience hosting authentic Moroccan food as well as international cuisine.
Concierge seems to be dealing specifically with one fancy tour operator. We were planning to visit Ouzoud waterfalls. They had only weekly tours on Thursday, based on minimum 4 passengers; otherwise, the two will pay the fare of four. Confirmation was possible only Wednesday night! In the booklet of hop on hop off bus, there were other much cheaper daily options. Concierge agreed to call that company and I finalised the booking.
Overall, hotel is very good relaxing and comfortable. I will be more cautious with cashier next time or settle my dues through booking agents.
