“Good price/quality ratio”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012

Stayed here for four nights and had a comfortable stay. The hotel has a pool area, three restaurants, a spa, and fitness area. It is located in the quarter Hivernage, about one kilometer from the Medina.

The rooms were nothing special, but proper and had a good size. The roomservice was reasonably priced, drinks were cheaper than in the international bars in the neighbourhood. The staff was friendly, but didn't provide the service you would expect from a four star hotel. The breakfast was sufficient, we enjoyed the Moroccan pancakes they served.

The best thing about the hotel was the location, it was only a ten minute walk to the medina and it was very nice to relax in this calm part of Marrakesh after a day in the city center.

Our room was dirty, with broken tiles. After inspecting 5 more rooms (with a lovely girl from reception), we eventually found one where there was only one chipped tile and the patio door locked (all 4 others didn't!)
The setting & grounds are nice, but the rest leaves a lot to be desired. The food was luke warm and unexciting. The best thing about the restaurant was the chap serving mint tea at the doorway at breakfast time. Luckily it was warm enough to eat outside for breakfast, but our evening meals indoors were very disappointing. The food wasn't good and the restaurant was dismal.
On a positive note, the pool attendants were helpful!
It's also a good half hour walk into the Medina & nowhere near as close as the write ups suggest.
Give this place a miss!

Room Tip: Ask for several keys and check rooms first. Many of the patio doors do not lock, making the rooms v...

I stayed at the Hotel Golden Tulip Marrakech for three days with a small group from Danmark .
I stayed at this hotel long time ago when it was called Hotel Siaha . Befor it was a very good
4 star hotel . But now it became a superior 4star hotel . The hotel premises are still the same .But
the quality and the variety of the food service is excellent . So my Danish clients were delighted with the variety of good and exllent Moroccan dishes prepared by native female kooks . For three
con sugutive days they never had the same tagines ( Moroccan stews ) not to speak about the deserts . I strongly recomend this establishment .

How can a hotel in Marrakech serve reconstituted orange juice for breakfast, and coffee that the worst cafe in the square would be ashamed of? Why when so many people have complained about the air conditioning and the safe boxes were neither working? Why whenever we asked for something to be done were we fobbed off endlessly as were the rest of our party, 44 on a touring holiday. We were not a particularly demanding group our needs were not extreme and yet everyone felt that our tour carrier needs to rethink this hotel. In contrast to most Moroccans the staff here seem disinterested and bored. It could have been so different, and it should have been.

Stayed four nights in November. The hotel is in the Hivernage area about 40 minutes walk from the Jmaa El Fnaa. Taxis 30-50Dm to the centre and on the Tourist bus route (which was very useful).

The hotel is a bit run down but (despite other reviews) our room was clean and well looked after.
There are three restuarants in the hotel. We only used the main restuarant for breakfast which if you like boiled eggs tomatoes and fried potatoes is OK.

There is also a fruit table with very good yoghurt and cheese, pastries etc etc. All the same each day but perfectly acceptable.

Coffee was a lottery either 'OK' sort of ,or paint stripper. There is a poor guy sitting with his pot of mint tea waiting for customers but it wasn't very good.

Apart from breakfast, the same place does what looked like a very good buffet with just about anything for 200Dm

We tried the Moroccan restuarant and were the only customers. The two musicians lept into action as we appeared and (presumably) sent a carrier pigeon to fetch the manager from somewhere who appeared ten minutes later.

We had lamb brochette on plain boiled rice with what seemed to be a spoon of thickened tomato juice seeping into it at the side of the plate. I suppose this was meant to be the spicy tomato sauce normally served. Lamb tajiine was a slow cooked piece of lamb on the bone which although OK had no seasong and lacked flavour. As in common with most food we had in Marrakesh Bland Bland Bland.

The Italian restuarant never opened as far as we could tell.

Generally, the staff were helpful and friendly, the pool area and bar is very good with an excellent selection of meals available. Cushions and towels are gratis.

Lifts seemed to operated at the will of God and would not come when called, would not stop at floors (except once when half way between it stopped and opened the doors)!

The safe in the room would not work, you have to buy a card from reception but nowhere does it tell you this. When I had done this, it worked once then would not lock. After the guy from reception had given up, he got an engineer that evening who struggled for half an hour and got it (seemingl) working. Broke down next day. I got my money back.

My main comment is that there is NO information about anything in the hotel or in the room. The only info sheet was about using the telephone which was completely wrong. Trying to gat an outside line I had to give a number and go through an interrogation as to what country I was ringing (it was a local Marrakesh number) and hang up waiting to be connected. AKA 'Put the machine wait'.

There is an in house hammam and massage facility and a couple of tat shops.

If you want a fairly quiet place with a very good pool and pool service for the warmer weather this is OK. Romantic break with lovely food, definitely not.

Near the hotel there is nothing at all, apart from the Extrablatt cafe/nightclub whatever it is (see other review).

Stay again? No.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back overlook the lower roofs of the kitchens and restuarants. Ugly and polluted bu a/c...

Spent 3 nights here but wished it could have been spent somewhere else. The rooms were of adequate size but not particularly clean. One could write ones name on flat surfaces in the dust. The pool area was brilliant. Reception staff extremely helpful. The food - well, not very good. Advised not to drink the orange juice as it is usually watered down and it could result in upset stomachs. Plenty of people seemed to be dropping by the wayside after dining here.
