This is an average business hotel. It is in a residential neighborhood fairly far from the old part of Marrakech. The people at the desk will try to tell you it's a 15 minute walk to the medina (down a wide, safe boulevard), but unless you are a speed walker, figure on about twice that. The rooms were O.K...nice view over the pool. In good weather, there's a large pool with a bar and restaurant...a little tacky, but nice enough. If you want Moroccan "atmosphere," this is not the place. If you're looking for a more "western" feel, it's adequate. They do have wi-fi, as do many types of accommodation in Morocco, and there is (supposedly) an internet terminal in the lobby that guests can use. However, the whole setup is VERY archaic and is down more often than it works. They hotel does have a spa, but I'd recommend going to one of the private hammams in the medina. Food (breakfast) is the same disappointing collection of breads and pastries, with some hard boiled eggs and runny scrambled eggs on the buffet. When we were there, several families with young children were staying at the hotel. The kids were all coughing and sneezing, but the parents allowed them to go up and handle the food on the buffet and put back anything they didn't want after they'd had it on their plates. Not the hotel's fault, but they might have monitored the buffet a bit better to avoid that type of thing.
