My wife and I stayed at the Hotel Oudaya for 7 Nights. We found it very pleasant indeed. It's a gentle half an hour stroll from the main square, and there are many good shops nearby as well as the Jardine Marjorelle. We found the rooms to be clean and comfortable. The food is very basic, but you get what you pay for. There are many other restaurants nearby if you want something more culinary.
The pool is an excellent sun trap for those who want a tan, but there are only 12 sun loungers, so get down early. We found the staff friendly and helpful, they may look a bit grumpy at first, but a smile and a "Bonjour" go a long way to breaking the ice.
This is a budget hotel that has seen better days, however if you want a low cost base to explore Marrakech, this is a good bet.
A word of warning however, when we arrived at 2am, we were presented with a bill for 156dr (around £11). This is apparently a hotel tax. It wasn't mentioned by our operator, nor in any of the literature. It is hotel policy, so don't worry, it's not a scam.
All in all a pleasant budget hotel for those who just want the basics. Would definitely stay again.
