We spent six nights at the Sultana Hotel in Marrakech and can only say that it was an almost flawless experience... right from beginning to end. The hotel itself is in a perfect location in the old part of the city, right on a very bustling street, but as a guest you don't notice much of the fuss, because upon entering La Sultana you are overtaken by a feeling of tranquility. Sitting in the bar/restaurant of the hotel, which is on the roof, you have a picturesque view of the near-by mosque, the storks, the date trees... The hotel has absolutely lovely interiors - air-conditioning (very useful!), a beautiful pool, a spa section, fresh flowers delivered and placed all around every morning... But the very best thing about La Sultana is the staff - right from the flower deliverer to the porters, to the driver to the cleaners to the chef to the waiters to the reception staff... A never-ending flow of always smiling, always helpful, always interested people, who seem to be there right when you need them, or even before you know that you need them. I can only think of two things that could have been a bit better - one is the lighting in the room, which was a bit too dim (there are no windows towards the street in the rooms), and the second is that I got the impression that some members of the staff did not know English very well, which is a bit frustrating for those of us who don't speak French or the local lingo, but would like to respond to the friendly staff in a like-wise friendly manner. It's a bit sad when they don't understand your jokes.... Oh, and one evening I was served an incredibly sour Mai Tai cocktail on the roof terrace - better order a Casablanca beer or some Maroccan wine instead! If you are looking for a "one-of-a-kind" hotel experience in Marrakech, I can't imagine anything more appropriate than La Sultana.
