This is a hotel of great character and comfort, located in the Kasbah area. Situated on an unobtrusive street, the old wooden front door gives little clue as to the elegant and sophisticated establishment within. This hotel is really a great refuge (and antidote) to the hurley-burley and often full-on nature of Marrakech street life outside. The gardens filling the central courtyard are luxuriant. The dining room is large, with an antique atmosphere and with a background aroma of woodsmoke and spices. Meals are served with a sense of style & occasion by the atentive staff. My wife, son and I shared a well-appointed room for our stay, which was quite big enough for the double plus extra bed. The room was located off a small and intimate courtyard with table, chairs and bubbling fountain (turned off at night). TV channels included BBC (so you can compare the rotten British weather with that outside). Don't forget to try the comfy chairs and settees up on the roof terrace, listen to the doves, watch the storks flying overhead and enjoy views over to the Koutoubia Mosque tower on one side and the distant Atlas mountains on the other. Or the pool in hot weather. We didn't try it, but there is lots of pampering on offer (massage, spa treatments etc). If we decided to return to Marrakech, les Jardins de la Medina would be our first choice. You will hear the Muezzins' call (which adds to the atmosphere I guess), and rooms nearest the outside streets may pick up the occasional moped and voices out- of-hours (not many cars use the streets, which are too narrow for anything bigger than a people carrier). I should add that all the staff work constantly to keep this hotel on the top line, and are very courteous and helpful. English is spoken by the Reception staff and a little by the dining room staff, but French is the main European language spoken.
A room on the North side (towards the Kasbah Mosque) may be quieter, being away from the street.
