“Clean, comfortable but a little noisy.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

Nice clean room with 2 comfortable single beds (mini 4 posters draped in lace!). Good bathroom, and great roof terrace where the breakfast was served. Beautiful main lobby. Stayed at the front of the hotel and it was rather noisy with passing traffic, people talking, stray cats etc.

The decor of the hotel is amazing. When tou first walk in to reception youjust know you've come to the right place with the mosaic work and the petal filled fountain. It is a little tired but everything is extremely clean.The staff are really helpful. Book trips to the Atlas mountains etc through reception as it's the cheapest way to do it.Breakfast is on the roof terrace with views over the rooftops towards the mountains and is extensive in what it offers. We arrived on a late flight and the restaurant is open at that time so is very handy for tired travellers. There is another great restaurant if you go out of the hotel, turn right then cross the road - it's called Jazzoo.The hotel has a swimming pool and a hamman downstairs but it was a bit too cold in mid Feb to swim! if you ask at reception, you can have the most amazing cappuccino (or other hot drink) at any time.Would definitely go back.

Room Tip: Ask the staff to book taxis, they can get them at half the price

This hotel is begining to look and feel it's age but the staff were wonderful. When, on each morning, I had no hot water, a maintenance man was sent to correct the problem. Having breakfast on the roof terrace in the middle of February was a challenge manageable. The Breakfast was plentiful, with cereals, breads, cakes, pancakes juices and omeletes. The coffee was to die for and I personally drank at least three mugs each day. The evening meal was very good and a diferent selection was offered each night. Delicious salads, indescribable soup followed by a tagine of either fish, chicken, lamb and couscous. I could not fault the offerings. The hotel is a 20 minute walk to the Medina but the walk was enjoyable once you had worked out the traffic pattern. You took your life into your hands everytime you crossed a main road. Became an expert at the end of my stay. During my stay I did not experience any annoying guests but could imagine the frustration as the wall are thin and there is no soundproofing around the entrance door. The cost of a taxi from the main square to the hotel was only 20dm ($1.75) I whole heartedly recommend this hotel

Room Tip: Ask for the rear of hotel as there is a nightclub 3 doors away from the hotel that attract many peop...

This hotel was part of a last minute deal booked through Opodo, which was v good value for money. When we saw the rates displayed in the hotel reception area we realised how good value the deal had been - we had saved a lot!
The hotel is such calming welcome relief from the dusty mayhem outside. Reception is a cool, ornate atrium with a fountain filled with rose petals, and we were served mint tea on arrival. My room was spotless. The furniture was traditional, although there was a lot of it in quite a small room. I had a small double to myself (it was booked as a single room) and a large bathroom with lots of hot hot water at all times. Room was made up immaculately every day, clothes hung up, and I felt very well looked after at all times.
The breakfast was a buffet style, breads, cakes, pastries, and then eggs and pancakes cooked on a griddle to order. Tea and Coffee etc were available, as were juices and water.
The only minus really was staying at the same time as an unbelievably loud and irritating Dutch tour group. the demolished the breakfast in about 10 minutes, smoked everywhere, and dressed wildly inappropriately for the country they were in. They were just so LOUD> but of course this is nothing to do with the hotel whatsoever.
I can't comment on the Dinner offering as i was staying B&B - there are lots of trendy french style bistros nearby, or the centre is very close for more traditional food.
Overall, a charming, beautiful hotel, just outside the centre but only 4DHM (£0.30!) on the public bus straight to the square. Highly recommended.

Near to the medina. Good restaurants nearby. Service ok but can be cold in the lobby area in Jan due to the way the hotel is built...would recommend as a budget hotel with easy access to the attractions

My wife and I have stayed in every kind of accomadation around the world and judge on expectation: especially clean beds and bathrooms and particularly the staff. Any establishment is only as good as its staff. There is no doubt that this hotel is about as authentic as you can get. The colours of the furniture and fittings was stunning.
Our room had two single beds that were drapped in curtains. We always insist on a double bed, but loved the layout and were very happy to take singles. It was very clean and the bathroom had a bath so deep it was heaven. If the windows were open it could be noisy with the car horns, but it didn't bother us and there were double glazed windows and internal glazed windows with coloured glass.
The breakfast was served on the roof terrace either in the open or in a large tent. When you are walking round museums, markets, shops and going on excursions all day, you need a big breakfast and you certainly got that, with pancakes, cereal, bread, at least six different cakes and dried and fresh fruit. In the evening it was a six course Morrocan meal, and different every night. As it was January it could be cold on the roof terrace, not that we were complaning after leaving six inches of snow in the UK.
We were worried that this hotel would be too far from the medina, but it was an easy walk, and walking, rather than a taxi, gives you a better insight. One of the jewels of Marrakech, the Majorelle Gardens and museum, is just around the corner. The temperature, in the daytime, was about 63f. just right for walking.
I have problems because of cancer, so the two lifts were an asset. The staff were superb and were always willing to help with advice on the best value restaurants, and sightseeing and, always had a smile from when we arrived untill we left after five days.

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.
