“Good value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

Was concerned prior to arrival as there were so many bad reviews. However, our experience was good. The staff were helpful. The best bit about breakfast was the Meloui - Moroccan pancakes cooked fresh in the dining hall, although there were other things available. There was a good selection for the buffet dinner (which was inclusive in our deal) with salads, hot food mainly Moroccan with lots of vegetables, and deserts. Useful to have some French as some staff had limited English (not a bad thing). The location was good. It was a quiet area and even though we had a room at the front was not disturbed by traffic at night. It took us about 30 mins to walk to Jamma El Fna Square - too hot to walk fast, although taxis were available. Tip: take tissues as many toilets we went to in Marrakesh did not appear to have toilet paper. Pool area was adequate and refreshing after sightseeing in the morning. The hammam is also worth a go. Overall, good value for money and would return.

Well equipped, comfortable rooms with a lovely pool. Very grateful be situated away from all the hustle and bustle of the Medina but within walking distance from everything. This hotel offers an awful lot with great lively entertainment and bar/club downstairs should you choose. Round the clock room service in a grand well priced hotel. We bought our own alcohol, filled the fridge with soft drinks and enjoyed the relaxed escape from the busyness of the city when needed. I would suggest always getting food outside for quality and price. For drinks and everything else you need its right here. A 20 minute walk from the centre but also well situated for other restaurant, bars and clubs around the city.

Essentially this hotel was exactly what was required. In a quiet district 15 minutes walk from either the Medina or the New town. Rooms were comfy with balcony, fridge and good shower. Pool is lovely with plenty of sun beds. Breakfast consists of cereal, pastries, breads or plenty of North African delicacies, If you want a fry up go to Benedorm! Staff very helpful.

Prices in the bar are as you would expect 35Dh for a beer, the same as most bars around in the new town. There is a local shop round the corner for crisps, water or a beer.
Good restaurant Le 6 or Carusos five minutes walk or plenty in the New town

Overall great stay and ignore the negative reviews, this is North Africa not the Costa Blanca!
Marrakech is fun, just absorb yourself in it!

:-( Most hotel staff are all good and helpful, except the rude woman at the reception.. Who was extremely rude and unhelpful.. Full of herself and very unwelcoming.. Felt like leaving the hotel even before checking in..!! However the other staff were ok..!! Most of the cleaners were happy and freindly apart from one which always had a face on and was misrable..!! Breakfast wasnt all that too.. Only drcent thing was the fresh "parathas" being made and tea and coffee was standard. Overall hygene was good around the hotel and in the diner..!! Would i visit this hotel again..?!! ...NO..!!

Lovely staff at the hotel, which were helpful all 100 times per day we came to ask about something. The breakfast was kind of boring and did not live up to the standard of the hotel - the eggs was overboiled and we could only eat the scambled and the pancakes.. The hygiene around the buffet was very bad, luckily we didn't get any bad stomach of it..

Really disappointed. The staff is rude home, the room cleaning was not done properly: chips on the floor, hair in one of the beds, dirty toilets ... A noisy demonstration in front of the hotel staff room, some hunger strike are a sitting at the entrance.
Only the restaurant staff is nice, but the buffet is very expensive for what is offered.
I highly inadvisable this hotel.
