“Positively Moroccan”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

This hotel has gone out of its way to provide a Moroccan experience in terms of its decor and atmosphere. Foyer and rooms have an unusual, traditional feel. Breakfast is taken in a tent on the rooftop, which is the most interesting thing about it - lots of sweet foods but not much in the way of savouries, though they will make you an omelette on request. There's a pool which is pleasant but largely shaded for much of the day - which makes taking a dip a brave experience! Baths and massage (recommended) also available. Main downside is the distance from most of the central attractions - you may wish to become acquainted with the No 1 bus as the half hour walk down Avenue Mohammed V is high on fumes and low on interest. Some good restaurants in the area (see my other reviews) and handy for the departure point for the sightseeing bus - which is well worth the ride (including the Palmerie trip) but don't expect the advertised half hourly service - schedules are erratic and you can be left high and dry for some time at the attraction of your choice waiting for the next bus. Home from home then!

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
