We stayed in this place for one night after our easyjet flight was cancelled. Bearing in mind we were being put up by the "airline", strictly speaking we should have been happy with anything reasonable - but what a dump!!
We have often experienced this nonsense of local star ratings being something of a joke but we can't think of anywhere we have been (and we're world travellers) that was so far out.
Quite seriously it is pushing it to award 1 or 2 stars if you classify pedantically by virtue of the facilities (like, say, there is a pool and there are lifts - of a sort) but not if you look at say standards of cleanliness or decoration. Aspects of breakfast were unpleasant and the room dirty.
We and many other passengers on the stopover got virtually no sleep as the building is based around a series of atria and the disco went on - full belt - until 5.00 am. It was seriously loud all night in many of the rooms, never mind the lounges.
Despite the efforts of the generally friendly staff, not the ones arguing in the dining room, the atmosphere was edgy if not actually threatening at night, our room was dirty and knocked about and the bathroom similarly so - and only one plug for the ancient tv. So no charging phones or using hair straightners here then.
All in all a place to avoid.
Marrakech is a great place and we were on our way home from a wonderful time staying in a riad (Riad Dar Alhambra)in the madina, so we felt it important to make the effort to post this to stop people going to this awful hotel. Go to Marrakech by all means but don't stay here!
