“Friendly fantastic riad - stay here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2010

Stayed for 4 nights at Jnane Mogador. Staff couldn't be more helpful or friendlier. The location is practically right on the main square where much of the action is. Very easy to find and right in the thick of things en route to one of the many souk areas. Once inside it is an oasis of calm, the rooms are very comfortable and clean and so dark that you might want to set your alarm for breakfast up on the terrace. Food is great. We were going to try another place to eat for the last night, but for quality, price, service and setting it would have been daft to go anywhere else. Very family friendly. You must try the hammam - brilliant! Wish we had paid a bit more and had the massage as well. We use a lot of budget hotels and we couldn't fault this place.

Keep looking for a better place to stay - this hotel should not be it! We found it to be a big disappointment. The photos online were very attractive, and, indeed, the riad has a very picturesque interior courtyard. However, the rooms are small, dingy, dark, and smell mildewy. Ours was also infested with ants. The beds were saggy and have sharp metal edges, on which I gashed my leg open (as did my friend). In addition, the man at the front desk was very argumentative and unhelpful.

If you plan to stay within the Medina, be advised that you will not be staying at the Ritz. The hotel is only 100 meters or so off the main square and has all of the accompanying noise and aromas (watch out for the motobikes on the street outside the front door!). We were in a double room on the first floor, which can only be described as cramped, stuffy (no windows to the outside), and noisy (people sitting just outside our door at the front desk chatting until 1 a.m. followed by the first call to prayer at 4:30 a.m.). We found the staff to be somewhat humorless. There is a nice outdoor terrace on the roof and a small restaurant as well. In terms of value, I would describe this as a notch up from the next door back-packer hostal where our daughter stayed, but at about 3-4 times the cost. I would not call this a "bargain." Having said that, it's an okay way to experience the medina--just bring your blinders and ear plugs if you're not a night owl.

We stayed in the Mogador Suite on the top floor for three nights and it was a wonderful experience. The room is lovely - a niche to sit in and read (with spot lights - necessary given the rest of the lighting is quite dim) and a sofa/table area.

The bed was large and very comfy - a wooden four poster affair - but rather creaky! Not a problem sleeping, though, at all.

Fridge doesn't appear to work in the room.

The private terrace is probably best in summer when it's really hot as it doesn't appear to get any sun - not so great for the chilly spring evenings in early April.

Breakfast is not included - and you pay the wait staff directly for meals so bring cash up with you. It is very nice - although we got a bit tired of the same selection after two mornings. Service a tad slow if you want to get going.

The second two breakfasts we had in Marrakesh were eaten on the go, which is also fun. Stop off at the main square for orange juice, pick up some Morrocan pastries from a stall in the souks, get your caffeine shot at Cafe des Epices. It is really worth experiencing the souks at 8.30am at least once - peaceful, stalls being set up, no hassle... Best time to be there, in my opinion!

We ate one night in the restaurant - for 60 dirham each it was good value, but they could do with significantly more meat in the dishes! That said, I was full enough afterwards. Probably good to do one night when you are tired and don't feel like the hassle of going out to the main square/don't have a dinner reservation somewhere.

Staff were helpful and usually attentive but not overly friendly. A lovely man helped us with bags to the taxi when we left, though.

Hotel has free internet (well, 10 mins, after that 2€ per hour) and printer. The challenge is negotiating the English/Arabic keyboard...! Not best for long emails, but to print your boarding pass, fine.

Overall, fantastic place to stay. Great location and very easy to find. Would definitely go back.

We stayed 3 nights. Nice riad with own hamam. The rooms are cosy and typically styled for a riad. The roof terrace is amazing view. Service is ok as food also. They are just very picky about paying in advance or paying immediate after a service (they called after a massage, when nobody was at the reception for immediate payment.)
