“Ok but not great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014 via mobile

First note this is a 3 star hotel at best.
Food is very poor: lukewarm and very poor choice.
Pool area is pleasant , though pool too cold even though it's March.
You have to pay extra to use room safe. ( bit cheeky)
Overall reasonable value but spent a lot of time next doir at the far superior Kenzi Farah. It's a bit more but worth it as food is much better, as is whole ambience.

a well run hotel, everything worked with good food and very pleasant, helpful staff. We were sorry to leaves (Jules Verne Tour). Location OK . Its worthwhile taking a horse and trap back from the square to the hotel.

Stayed for one night with my boyfriend, and I must say the service was very good in the restaurant when we first got there. They looked after us and brought our staters and main course outside was absolutely lovely. All the staff were friendly. Very good selection for breakfast the next day. Lovely pool area with beautiful trees and the atmosphere is great at this hotel.
They have little shops in the hotel, hammam relaxing area and beautiful bar, lobby reception area is nice too with wi fi.

Rooms are clean and are to a average modern standard which looked good. Comfy bed and nice decor.
If I ever come back to Marrakech I would definitely come back to this hotel :)

The hotel was about 20 minutes walk from the old town and about 20 from the new area so good location. Swimming Pool was freezing and you need to pay to use the indoor one.
Breakfasts were pretty awful- scrambled eggs and lots of breads. I am usually okay with this but these did not taste like egg. Fruits were okay for breakfast with yoghurt but ran out very quickly. They do pancakes in the morning but a very long queue every morning to get a pancake, which was lovely once you got it! Bread was nice as were the pastries but not really an enjoyable breakfast. Cereals limited and not very fresh.
If you are just looking for a place to stay for the night then it's great, but don't expect much from the food. Indoor swimming pool, massages, sauna is all at an extra cost which is quite different from european countries I usually go to
Room was lovely- spacious and bathroom was clean, with shampoos etc replaced daily.
The old town was lovely and lots of nice restaurants, fresh juices to choose from.

Room Tip: Try and get a non smoking room

Not the best, but it is a good one... 30 minutes from Old Town... 10 to Gare... The same problem of almost everyone on the level... cleaness.. could be better...English is kind of a wall for those who don't speak french, like me, but staff help as they can... restaurant Marocain is a good choice...

The female receptionist was quite aloof when we arrived and didn't even have a road map for us! So we left the Medina without a map which was a bad idea. Apart from that, the rooms were good with balcony, location is OK (around 30 minutes walk and more to the city), breakfast was really good with a lot of selection to choose from! Supermarket (carrefour) is around 10 minutes walk away which was easy for us to get water supplies.

I recently stayed here as part of a package tour around Morocco. First impressions were less than fantastic, as we were in a room where the safe was not functioning. Eventually our tour guide got us a new room where the safe worked. The bed was comfortable and the breakfast is above average based upon what we saw. The Moroccan tea at breakfast might have been my favourite in Morocco.

By the end of the tour, I couldn't wait to get back to this hotel. It's in a nice, quiet area. There are some really good restaurants that serve international food within walking distance. They have dependable wifi in the lobby, which comes in handy.

We took a taxi to the Carrefour, which was not too far away. A really nice diversion on a rainy day. There isn't much to do in Marrakech on a cold, rainy winter day. Overall, I would probably stay here again. It is about average and I have stayed in worse in the US and UK.

Room Tip: A room on the pool side is quieter.
