I stayed one week at this hotel and was not overwhelmed but not disappointed either. Having stayed at many hotels around the world, it is always with some trepidation when you first enter any hotel lobby. A good sign of any hotel located in a hot country is whether the lobby is air conditioned or not, this hotel foyer was not. But the staff was attentive, warm and welcoming. The hotel itself was clean decent and full of character. I particularly liked the roof terrace bar and the small but pleasant pool on the ground floor ( closed at night due to having to walk through the restaurant to access it ).
The bedroom was comfortable ( the twin beds we had was just a standard double bed pulled apart ). The air conditioned work well, however the Shower was tepid never hot and barely warm, but with the heat in august this wasn't necessarily a bad thing. The room was cleaned daily and fresh towels and toiletries provided.
The breakfast was ok - some fruit, eggs, pastries, bread, and yogurt if your lucky - all i can say is passable. The juice runs out pretty quickly i must say, but a gentle reminder to the staff will result in a quick refill.
The restaurants fared much better and I was impressed with the quality and range of food which was presented and prepared to a good standard. I recommend that you try the main restaurant if you can.
The hotel is a good 20 - 25 minute walk from the main medina but the area is colourful, vibrant and fashioned with many bars, restaurants, shops and taxis. as i enjoy walking I was also able to walk to the Jardine Marcelle, which is a lovely oasis well worth a visit.
I would have preferred wifi in my room - but this was available in the lobby only - but was reliable and pretty fast.
Laundry service, advice, maps etc are all at hand - and my stay in Marrekesh was a good one.
