Just returned from a great stay here.
Firstly, if you are looking for 5* luxury and be confined to your hotel all week; this is not for you, however, if you want to taste Morrocan culture; give it a go!
The hotel is in a perfect location. The Medina (Souks) is literaly across the road, the new town with your western shops (McDonalds, Starbucks, Zara) is a 15 min walk away.
The food here is Okay, sometimes good; lots of pastries,breads, salads and cold meats for breakfast, Beef Tagine, chicken on the bone, Chicken Caserole, meatballs, Fish Tagine or Battered Fish with lots of cold pastas, rice, salad, olives. We missed lunch as we were often out but on the last day we caught it and it was delicious Chicken Kebas Yumm!
The hotel itself is nicely decorated, however the rooms do need updating, particulary the bathroom which was a bit rusty in places; but we just used it as a base so it was fine.
The reception staff can be abrupt and unhelpfull, you get the impression they just want your money; on arrival they tried to get extra local tax from us but once I pointed out that I knew it was 11DH per person per night he backed off. You do need your witts about you here, they will try to get your money, as do all Morrocan's. I would advise against exchanging your money at the hotel as they charge A lOT of commission; there are plenty of commission free facilities around.
The restruant staff were great, there was nothing tghey wouldn't do for us, they really made our holiday as they remembered us, and what we liked and ususally were ready to cater for our every need; so friendly!
Overall it was a good hotel, free wifi in the downstairs area which was a nice way to meet people. Everyone in Morrocco is so friendly!
Supermarket next door, lots of taxis outside (don't pay more than 20 DH for anywhere in Marrakech).
we had a great stay, it wasn't without fault but the staff did try to please us.
I recommend this if you are open to exploring culture (which I guess is why you chose Morrocco?) but if you like your home comforts, its probably not for you.
