“Cheap but cheerful”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

Less than £18 per night half board - so really can't complain. Yes, the hotel was tired, the coffee wasn't brilliant, juice too sweet and watered down but the pool was great, rooms were clean with bedding and towels changed daily, shower was good with plentiful hot water, gardens were lovely and the staff were friendly, helpful and cheerful.

Hotel has never really moved on from the 70s and definitely needs a major refurb. But the bits that mattered were clean. We moved from room 220 which was lovely and cool but t'other half reckoned the bed was too hard, up to 440 which wasn't as good and faced the front so a bit noisier and caught the sun. If you want a quiet or cooler room - just ask - they're happy to oblige.

Pool was always relaxing, never too loud, not heated but that was OK as it was in the late 20's/early 30s when we were there late October. Didn't use the bar there - we'd learned from TripAdvisor to buy large bottles of water at the garage next door!

Interesting bunch of guests - lots of Moroccans, French, Germans, few Brits.

Food was more than adequate - a bigger choice when they had more people staying but we didn't starve! I'm vegetarian but did OK. In fact with all the salad I ate and hardly any booze (bar the odd local Flag beer in the hotel) I actually lost 4 lb and I'm only a size 10 in any case! I was actually glad to see they didn't pander to English taste - no chips etc! Though corn flakes came out mid week ....

We'd ummed and aahed about a riad in the medina versus a bigger hotel in the new town but glad we went with the Amine. It was an easy and cheap bus ride back for a swim, sunbathe, shower and then supper most evenings. And sometimes we went back to the djemma for the evening.

No regrets either on hiring a car for a few days and getting out to the coast - Clio organised through reception for about £37 a day.

Room Tip: Ask at reception - they're very obliging. Garden view for peace and quiet.

this has to be the worse hotel I have ever had the misfortune to stay in! Yes I know it's cheap but even I expected a few basics! This hotel is decrepit and dirty, some staff did their best for you but the reception staff did not make you feel welcome and any request made was an inconvenience. To top it all they stopped selling alcohol with no warning stating that the manager had to apply for a licence!!!! Good was an experience, hence we ate out after the first day, I see see other so called 4 star hotels which knocked spots of this place. Couldn't wait to leave!!!

Hi, I have just returned from my 2nd trip to this hotel - Oct 2013.
The hotel is very reasonably priced with a lovely large pool and friendly helpful staff. My room and all communal areas were cleaned every day, fresh sheets and towels daily. This time I had dinner at the hotel, not to bad at all, choices and plenty of food. My waiter Ahmed is a sweetie, bringing 'english' tea to my room before breakfast each day. The lifeguard /pool boy Isham is always on hand if you need a towel for poolside. Zainab at the pool bar makes a great omelet and is always ready for a chat.
This hotel is in a great location a 20dh taxi or 4 dh bus ride from the main square. A little haven of peace and tranquility. Cant wait to go back Peta M

Room Tip: Poolside rooms get the most sun

Half board for less than £20 per day! Swimming pool! What more do you need? Excellent. Why must there be a 200 character minimum for this review? No other hotel in Marrakech comes close to Hotel Amine. Enjoy your stay!!

Room Tip: Room 242 is nearest to reception - room 222 is miles away!!

I enjoyed my visit to the Hotel Amine... lovely garden, good bar, and excellent breakfast... as well as nice clean rooms and luxurious amounts of much appreciated hot water. So much so I stopped an extra night. The rates are reasonable and reflect the somewhat shabby decor which needs an uplift. But d'you know what? that is more than made up for by the splendid staff who try to make your stay a joy. Worked with me! I had eggs for breakfast the pastries were exceptional, but the coffee not good and the juice not fresh, and perhaps even watered down! I had to ask for serviettes, but they were immediately forthcoming. I liked the excellent paintings - like murals throughout the groundfloor public areas too.

Stayed here with a friend for a couple of nights after visiting family in Casablanca.
All we wanted was a decent bed and a clean room. And we got it! Yes, the hotel is a little tired, and the room was missing a lightshade or two, but it was clean, beds were comfy and the room had a balcony - lovely to sit out on at night with a G&T after a busy day in the Souks! The pool area is lovely, and the public areas (although quite dated although some would say art deco) are fine.
Breakfast is OK, nothing fancy. Coffee, boiled eggs, croissants, crepes, yogurt, honey etc.
If you are visiting Marrakech and want to be in a slightly quieter part of town, want good value for money, and don't need luxury, you can't go wrong with The Amine. If you want a bit of luxury, look elsewhere!!
We paid about £13 pp per night - a bargain.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back overlooking the gardens are quiet, and benefit from no sun so are much cooler than...
