Our 6 night stay at Hotel du Tresor in May was a brilliant experience. We stayed in the cosy En Double room (bunk beds) which offered a budget price compared to other riads we looked at. The room was small (but we expected as much) and the ground floor location meant it was a little noisy at times but nothing major.
The location of the hotel is fantastic - just a few minutes from the main square yet the hotel is so peaceful, you forget just how close you are to everything. We arranged airport transfer and our driver was nice (although a little late) and helped us with our bags. When we first got to the hotel we were worried about walking back at night as it's down a few back streets, but we never felt unsafe once.
The staff were really chilled and helpful with any questions we asked, especially Amine who was very welcoming. On our last day, we were allowed to check out at whatever time we wanted as the room hadn't been booked that night. They also let us use the computer to print off our boarding passes. The interior of the riad is lovely with the rooftop terrace being the highlight. We spent a lot of time up there lounging in the sun or shade. There was wifi which was handy although the signal was very up and down.
Breakfast offered a good choice and you had the option to eat it outside or inside if you wanted to dodge the wasps. There was a different cake each morning and one day they had the most amazing coconut cake, it was definitely one of the best things I ate during my trip.
The only minor downside to the hotel was the pool not really being suitable for use like we'd hoped. A big orange tree blocking the sunlight makes the pool cold, even at the hottest part of the day. However, we managed to find another pool we could use nearby so this was no problem. Also as others pointed out, we noticed an unpleasant smell from the drains of the bathroom on our last couple days.
Overall, this little riad has almost everything you could ask for and there is a room to meet everyones price range. The hotel really made our stay in Marrakech and if I ever came back I'd definitely stay here again!
