“an Arabian Dream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

our family, with 2 teenagers, stayed at La Sultana for 4-5 days, and could have spent a month- or more!
La Sultana is beautiful, peaceful, quiet and comfortable in the midst of bustling Marrakech. The staff is superb- and will arrange everything. Every room is gorgeous and different in design and decor elements- while maintaining your arabian dream.
You can walk to almost everywhere you want to go within the city walls which makes morning and late afternoon ideal for touring around easy and spontaneous (early morning runs recommended for optimal weather, nice orientation, less crowds, and a real picture of daily life in Marrakech). Breakfast or evening drinks on the roof deck overlooking the city surrounding you are a must for sunrises and sunsets. Mid afternoons are usually hot- so ideal time to rendevous back at La Sultana for lunch at the poolside. Although the restaurant is superb, the staff will help book the best tables at the best and most scenic restaurants in Marrakech for a few dinners. They also will arrange the requisite camel rides just outside the city. La Sultana is a must experience while in Marrakech, and a 'home' I would love to live in anywhere.

Room Tip: Every room is beautiful and unique. Some are larger- Ask staff about the options, as i doubt there i...

La Sultana is a true haven of peace and tranquility in a chaotic environment. It`s standards are far higher than the other 5 star hotels. It is elegant, smart and fantastically stylish but not in a garish or excessive manner.
The staff are genuinely considerate and patient; wishing for your comfort at all times, and thinking ahead to your needs.
The rooms are designed in a unique and comfortable way, and spa and the staff there are superb too.
The welcome is generous and considerate with a little surprise, and so is the departure... I won`t spoil it for you!
There is a tour of the hotel too, so if you prefer another room or suite you can chose more easily too.
How could it get better? Well it can... the food in the restaurant cannot be beaten. The menu is a fusion of French and Moroccan cuisine and it works remarkably well.
I cannot recommend it more highly. For those of you who know what luxury really means, and have high expectations; this is for you!

We spent three glorious nights at La Sultana at the end of our honeymoon. Everything about this place and the people who work there is AMAZING! From the moment we walked in it was all about our comfort and the staff did all they could to make our stay unforgettable. Khalid welcomed us with a delicious cup of mint tea before showing us to our beautiful room. The Prestige room we had was spacious and very private. Only metres away lies the hustle and bustel of Marrakesh and yet it is so quiet inside the walls of La sultana. Breakfast is delicious and there are many choices on the menu as well as a buffet. The rooftop area is great for lunch. The bar opens at 6pm and we had our very own friendly barman. Dinner menu is great, food is so fresh and not too pricey. The reception staff are very helpful, they organised a guide to spend half a day with us. Nothing was too much trouble. The Spaa is lovely. My husband and I had a body scrub treatment and massage, and we thoroughly enjoyed the pampering. They even left a sweet gift for us on the last night. It was definitely a five star experience. The staff speak great English and we liked their sense of humour also.

Room Tip: if you have any queries about rooms, email the hotel direct and they are very helpful, especially Kh...

We had a lovely - but too short - holiday; The room and the hotel were superb and so quiet, considering the hustle and bustle of the street outside. The food and service were exceptional and we were treated very handsomely. We were not actually on our honeymoon (!) as we have been married for nearly 48 years but perhaps we looked so happy, it might appear that we were on a special break. Thank you; we are planning to come again as soon as we can.

The hotel is amazing. It is hidden down a small allley and through a door into a beautiful oasis. Each room is unique and well appointed. Had dinner in the restaurant and the meal was lovely. The staff was great and were very helpful with arranging a car for an early morning airport transport and having a small meal delivered to the room at 6:15 a.m. The roof top seating and bar is great to watch the sunset and people watch while having a pot of mint tea. The hotel belongs to the "Smalll Luxury Hotels of the World" group and deservingly so.

La Sultana was an amazing experience throughout our 6 day stay and lived up to its reputation as an SLH property. Located in Marrakech's busy city center yet still felt like an oasis. The staff had fantastic attention to detail -- most staff greeted us by name by the second day -- it gave a very personal feeling to our stay. Rooms are amazing, food is excellent, location is great for holiday traveling. Pricing is expensive, but that's to be expected for an experience like this. Looking forward to having the chance to return one day.

We considered two alternative hotels of similar caliber in the area, and I am glad we chose to stay at La Sultana.
