“Great location, Great staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2014

My partner and I travelled to Marrakech on 30th April and stayed for 5 nights.
We are both big eaters and love adventures and travelled on a tight budget.

Firstly, hotels in this area are all cramped for space and have the potential for a bit of noise late at night due to the fact that its still about 25 degrees outside at 1am and people are still mingling around the alleyways that these hotels are all tucked into...we stayed in room 15 which is on the 3rd floor directly above reception entrance which I think was probably the noisiest room but we still managed a decent nights sleep each night. the hotel is very close to the market square which means you also get a moderate amount of noise from there but personally we found this just added to the atmosphere and got used to it very quickly..(if you want guaranteed peace then a simple pair of ear plugs will go a long way when travelling through Africa)

The hotel is very basic (imagine a very clean backpackers with all separate rooms) but its very clean and tidy and well looked after.
The décor is basically floor to ceiling mosaic tiles which look great, the beds were comfortable (pillows were a little firm) and the terrace is a great place to cool down or get some sun.
You will need to take your own towels and purchase your own toilet paper (2pack) and bottled water though, but there are shops less than a minutes walk from Sindi Sud so its not a problem (don't pay more than 6dh for either).

With each room you get a simple Moroccan breakfast (croissant with jam and honey, Moroccan crepes, Tea or Coffee and OJ) but this was more than enough for us. Breakfast is served on the terrace around 8;30-12. You just have to walk up to the terrace bar and tell the ladies what you want to drink and they will sort the rest.

For us the staff here are what made our trip here so good, the guys on reception were helpful and went out of their way to make us feel welcome and even help us sort out between the rip offs and the bargains, the cleaners/tea ladies were always friendly and polite too. Most importantly we felt safe here.. and that was the biggest thing for us.

I've stayed at Sindi Sud before and it was my first choice when returning this time. If I go back to Marrakech I will stay there again and I would recommend it to anyone. I only gave it 4 stars because it obviously doesn't have all the amenities of other hotels but it serves its purpose of being a convenient, clean, friendly place to stay when visiting the Medina of Marrakech very well.

Room Tip: Rooms facing outwards can be a little noisy but nothing earplugs wont sort.

We booked online using Agoda and Booking.com from Canada.
Upon arrival we were given a tin nicest of rooms without the promised patio. It had no AC and was on the highest floor with no elevator. We complained that we needed a bigger room with AC as it was very hot. They offered a room at twice the cost and since we were tired, we took it for the night. We went out to eat and upon return, two new receptionists told us that the room was bigger so we could not have it for the upgraded price. We argued a bit and eventually settled on a the higher price and without breakfast. We told them that we would be leaving in the morning and they said that we MUST leave by noon. Upon asking repeatedly if we needed something in writing, we were told that we had given them enough notice and we would not be chef end for the two more nights were booked.
The bigger room was not conveniently laid out- we had to put our suitcases on a sofa as there was not much room. The plus were hanging out if the sockets. No soaps, shampoos or towels. Fortunately I always carry my own towels so we did not miss it. It was very, very noisy almost all night, cleaning, shouting and slamming of doors. We did not sleep much. In the morning there was noise of setting up breakfast, though we did not see what was served. We left at 11 am and turned a corner and found another Riad. This time we had a totally opposite experience.

I loved my room - very nicely decorated and a comfy bed. Avoid the ground floor if you can, there was lots of noise from reception all night.
It's pretty hard to find, tucked away in the lanes of the medina, taxis can't go in so there's no way I would have found it without the help of a friendly local.
I had to ask for toilet paper and a towel as these were not initially provided, but apart from that the facilities were (minimal, but) fine. Very clean too.

Room Tip: I got put in a room on the ground floor, near reception, which was very noisy with talking and motor...

We first stayed at Sindi Sud eleven years ago and have been back every year since. We return because of its location, its cleanliness and the friendliness of the staff (special mentions to the ever-polite and helpful Hakim, and the Manchester United fan Rachid). You can choose a room with its own bathroom or a less expensive one with a shared shower and toilet.The terrace is lovely with fine views across the old city. The only downside is that it can be a little noisy at times when other guests arrive late or leave early in the morning.

Room Tip: Room one has an en-suite bathroom and opens out on to the terrace.

without reservation we came at 10pm, there was no double room left. We were given a triple room with 120dhs (original price 150). We were too tired so took it. With wifi and hot water shower it was a good deal. Near to medina but minus the noise. The interior design is good. It is quiet. The attendent is calm and helpful. We shall go back again. The double room with shared bathroom only cost 100, a good deal.

Without reservation, We came at night ten oclock and there is no double room left. But we can have a trio room for only one hundred twenty. It should have been one hundred fifty. Good value. The attendent is calm and helpful. It is not easy to find but with TA we can find that with little difficulty.
