My boyfriend and I booked this hotel even though it wasn't in the main old city of Marrakech, it's situated in the new, up and coming busy and well developed part of town outside the old wall. Although the old city is approx 2km walk away down the Main Street, there's plenty to see on the way, or you can negotiate some petit taxi fares.
The hotel itself was fabulous, the reception area was beautiful, fountains and embellished chairs, and you can see right up to the roof. Inside the room, it was busy with materials and colours and patterns, really authentic feel, nice sized room with plenty of space. It was also very clean.
The staff were helpful and friendly, speaking good English even though we started the conversation in French.
The breakfast was mediocre however, although this may be put down to the fact that neither of us like breakfast much, and we didn't go to the roof where breakfast was served until 9.30 or 9.45 and the breakfast finished at 10am, having been sitting there for 3 hrs. Plenty of choice tho, just a little too many sweets and cakes for us English used to bacon and eggs.
The only other small let down was the evening meal. We went bed and breakfast as we love eating in different restaurants, but guide books recommend at least one nights dinner in the riad. It was a every traditional, 4 course meal, Moroccan salad, veg soup, main and seasonal fruit. Whilst everything else was tasty, fresh and homemade, we were disappointed with the main course as we only got one chicken thigh each and a whole mound or vermicelli with no sauce. We quickly learned that sometimes when u have main courses in Marrakech, they aren't very big as starters, salads and soups are served in huge portions.
All in all, The hotel and the staff made our visit to Marrakech very enjoyable and we would highly recommend for anyone looking to discover Moroccan delights.
