“Ok, but I think Marrakech has better to offer”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

I stayed in this hotel as part of a package for 1 day before and 2 days after a trekking trip. The hotel welcomes you with a sign that says "Charming Hotel" with 3 stars under it and that sums it up reasonably well. I have no major complaints given the price point, nor did I find anything that wowed me. The hotel did have the feel of a Moroccan Fawlty Towers.

Inside the hotel, I found it quite dark. There was a riad style water feature in the central lobby with some seating. The rooms felt a little tired and had too much clutter in them. The bed had a cheap painting mounted into the frame and there were a lot of cheap toiletries that appear to come from a pound-shop. The bathroom needed some maintenance, especially where the shower head was concerned and the water temperature was inconsistent. The TV was very old and small and there was an electronic safe which would only be enabled for a daily charge. There was a small grubby looking fridge in the corner. Having said all of this, I slept well.

The hotel had a number of odd quirks such as low ceilings in the stairwell which led to one or two sore heads. Breakfast was ok but not amazing. There was a lack of fresh fruit which I thought was a shame.

The staff were friendly and helpful. The location was ok within walking distance of the old town and near to some local shops and restaurants.

Although about a half hour walk from the centre of Marrakesh, this is quite a conveniently located hotel with plenty of shops and amenities locally. Its built in a traditional Morrocan style with ornate tiling and 'interesting' decor in the rooms. Perhaps a little 'tired' in terms of room facilities but clean enough and theres a nice pool. A small convenience shop opposite for water etc is open all hours. Wasnt that impressed by food in the Beyrut Lebanese restaurant next door but didnt eat in the hotel itself other than the very adequate breakfast served on the roof terrace. About 20 yrds to the right is another more modern hotel (cant recall the name ) with a nice roof bar where you can drink cold beer(even draught). A ten minute walk away is the modern centre of Guelliz area with MacDonalds etc!!
Staff at the hotel are very pleasant and helpful.

Located in a quiet back street just a few minutes walk to Place du 16 Novembre. An ideal place
to return each day after the noise and frantic bustle of Marrakech:- a good nights sleep is guaranteed!

The hotel is spotless, all the staff extremely helpful and the half board breakfast and evening meals (salads, soups, tagines) well presented and appetising. The four poster bed was extremely comfortable. Endless hot water for showering/bathing. The WiFi was fine; sent and received many emails (with and without picture attachments) without any problems.

A 30 minute leisurely walk from the hotel will get you to Place Jemma-el- Fna (where all the action is). Just a straight walk from Place du 16 Novembre along Avenue Mohammed V. A taxi ride for two from the hotel (if you do not fancy walking) costs 20 dirham:- but at least 50 if you do not haggle. The unbelievable traffic flow makes crossing roads a never to be forgotten experience. if you 'sport' a map you will be frequently accosted by men offering to help you find your way:- forget it, thank you but no! And when you buy things check that your change
is correct.

Overall an excellent visit to Marrakech and we certainly made the right Hotel choice.

A wonderful modern and clean Riad with the wow factor. Excellent half board food of soups, salads, tagines and cous cous. Take breakfast on the roof terrace in the sunshine which is a lovely way to start your day. Bathe by the pool in the mornings (shady in the afternoon). Use the hammam for a body scrub and massage. April perfect weather for a visit. Walk to the Yves San Laurent Gardens, take a taxi to the Medina and haggle away. Do not miss the night food market in the square by the Madina, even if you are not hungry - have some mint tea and soak up the atmosphere.

Room Tip: 4th floor at the back. We had the 5th (top) floor at the front so you could hear guests going for b...

very nice little hotel. Hotel and rooms are traditionally furnished, and it has a lovely swimming pool. It has a tiny hammam in the basement which is really lovely. Massage and hammam services are really good and fairly priced.
All the hotel is quite traditionally built with marble inlay and pictures. There is a lovely decorated tent on the terrace where breakfast is served.
Staff is friendly and able to speak good french and some also a fair english. Half board option is quite nice, even if it can became tiring after a few days. Food is moroccan with twist toward continental tastes.
Location is a bit difficult to find but excellent, being in the newly built part of the city, Gueliz.
Connections to the city centres are abundant and cheap, buses are nearby and in the near Mohammed V road is possible to hail a petit taxi. For 20 Dh is possible to reach the medina in a 5-10 minutes ride.
definitely recommended.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the pool are quieter

Stayed at this hotel with my friend for 3 nights. We really couldn't fault the hotel, we had two double four poster beds, the decor of the room was very ostentatious but we liked the fact it was a bit different. It's a very traditional looking hotel with a colourful and detailed decor. The breakfast was great, the omelettes were the highlight for me! Freshly cooked and delicious, plus a good selection of cereals, fruit and pastries. We ate out on the roof in the sun but when it went cold there is a marquee/tent to eat in too.
Our only complaint was that the room was a little cold, there seemed to be a problem with the heating. It's also quite a long walk to the medina.
A word of warning - a "friendly local" purposely led us in the wrong direction of the majorelle gardens so we would go to a market with him and give him money. As females travelling alone we were quite nervous when this happened. Luckily we realised quite quickly that it wasnt the right direction and another passer by showed us the way. The area was fine apart from that one incident, we went out alone in the dark every evening and felt perfectly safe.
In terms of the hotel though I would definitely stay again - comfortable beds, great food and good service.
