“Do not go here”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2008

In the winter, no heat no warm water for 60 euros a night. you share your room with coackroaches, carpet is a heaven for termites. rusted shower, leaking toilets........ Service is terrible, they tell you you are the only and first one with hot water poblems, like it is a new problem, if you stay at the counter, more people will come complaining about the same thing. of course they improvise an answer for everyone. Of the 60 euros, I was charged 30 for the crammy breakfast.
walk 100 m up to find a much better offering. I guess you can buy stars in morocco, because rating this as a two star hotel is absolutely outrageous. it should be closed.

Rooms are a bit old but comfortable. The food is not bad but is always the same. I like Moroccan food, that wasn't the problem, the hotel food was the real problem. If you go with half board like I did, it gets to the point where you can't even look at it much less eat it. I skipped some meals, I couldn't take it. The staff is generally ok, some nicer than others. The pool is very small, don´t believe the photos, but the surrounding area is very nice especially in the afternoon. Location isn't bad, a bit far from all the action, that is the square, close to La Majorelle though. Not a bad hotel if you have a small budget, but I don't know if I would come back or recommend it to someone else.

Rooms are dirty, food is awful (and almost always the same), towels for bathrooms and swimming pool are dirty (many stains !). Overall, the hotel looks very old and would need repainting.

Stayed here for only one night - that was enough! We arrived hungry and tired after driving from Agadir to Casablanca to Marrakech, a 12 hour round trip.

The dinner was very poor, a 'traditional' tagine which was cold and a salad which was drenched in salad cream. We just ate the fruit.

The room was very small with a dirty bathroom whose door didn't shut properly.

It seems the Kenza is a tourist hotel for those spending a night in Marrakech, so all the other guests were European.

If you travel to Marrakech with a tour company make sure you DON'T stay here!
