“Well situated hotel/riad near the main square”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

Hotel Jnane Mogador is very well situated and, essential in Marrakesh, easy to locate as it's just off the main lane Riad Zitoun Kedim. It's a lovely riad and very well priced although the bed was a bit uncomfortable.
The staff are very helpful and obliging and breakfast on the terrace is a great way to start the day, the fresh orange juice always welcome.
They have a hammam in the basement and the combined hammam and massage was extremely well priced, and having experienced it, also really good and relaxing. I felt thoroughly clean and relaxed by the time I floated back to my room.
All in all, a very pleasant stay and I would recommend it.

These people are crooks. They advertise a quadruple room, but it's the size of a double with 4 beds in it. When we complained, they told us there were no rooms available. Then, when the man at the front desk saw me searching for another hotel, he told me I must pay for all 5 nights up front. When I argued he spoke to me (I am a woman) like I was a child. When I explained it was unnecessary to be so rude, we were kicked out of the hotel. Don't waste your time here. We moved to another riad closer to the square and for less money.

Riad Jnane Mogador is a little marvel near the world famous Djemaa El-Fna. The courtyard is beautiful; the rooms quaint, cosy, and clean; the dining rooms inviting; and rooftop terrace, lovely. The staff I found quite helpful. There many instances of their hospitality and kindness: Muhammed lent me his personal phone adapter so I can charge my camera ( I forgot one);
the waitress gave me hot water to bring to room for my special tea; and the staff giving helpful recommendations for places to visit. It was a lovely experience to stay in this riad, indeed.

Room Tip: The interior rooms are quieter.

The rooms are pigeon holes compared to other similarly priced riads. The staff was not as friendly as others we have stayed at. We were given a room above reception and under the kitchen / restaurant. Noise level was pretty high. The only positive was the proximity to the main square.

The place is beautifully arranged, with plenty of dark wood doors leading to the rooms. The room is small but have everything you need, beautifull hang out place and terrace on the rooftop. The restaurant food is very good, and the non-inluded (40dh) breakfast is worth it. The 30 minutes massage is also good value/price. The location is perfect and the staff really nice.

A very comfortable guest house, small rooms, great rooftop terrace and very helpful staff. Close to the Djemaa El-Fna (the main square) in the Marrakech medina. Small lanes, great food and restaurants at the hotel and in the area around. Action every evening in the square which is far enough away that at the hotel you hear nothing. A little noisy sometimes as our room was directly on a laneway but very good value and a very welcoming guest house.
