We stayed at this hotel as part of a tour with topdeck. On our last day here, we found bedbugs within the sheets. We were forced to switch to another hotel down the street. Unfortunately, this hotel has been nothing but problems. The first night we stayed, the room reeked of cigarette smoke. They stated that we could not switch... More

Very good hotel, well placed on the edge of the Medina and all the madness. Close enough and far enough at a 15 minute walk from the square . Competitive prices and excellent facilities. Well recommended.

Decent Hotel for the price we paid. 19 of us stayed here between 17th and 24th Dec 2015. Rooms were small but had wifi access and a balcony. Bathroom was in need for some work as the bath taps did not work. Hallway light were on a timer and was very dark. Not may guests when we was their either.... More

Aziz was very pleasant and helpful and ladies who did cleaning were lovely. But warning a French man called Vincent who lives in apartment next door goes to the Bar most... More

Located in a modern district in the city. Eveything was cool in this small hotel except the meals. The breakfast cost arround 50 MAD but there is nothing to eat really. Boiled Eggs and bread. That's all. Even there was no drinking water. It is better to have your food outside.

It's another one of those 'you get what you pay for' instances. Based on the price and the three star rating I wasn't exactly expecting the Ritz. What initially attracted me to this hotel was its closeness to the airport and menara mall, and the fact I had a tour starting here the next day. I'm not sure about this... More

Stayed here at either end of a trek. The hotel is in a good location - about 20 minutes walk from Jemna el Fna, on the edge of the Hivernage area, with some restaurants nearby and also a carrefour supermarket just round the corner (very handy for buying a wide range of food to take home). There is free wifi... More

You get what you pay for. Small rooms, but I had no plans on visiting Marrakech to spend my time indoors so the bed and shower suited well. Taxes of 11 dirham per person per day to be paid when you check out. Staff were very helpful. Azzar in particular really looked after both myself and my partner, we are... More

My partner and I visited the hotel as part of a walking holiday, the rooms were very small and poorly furnished, the bathroom was lit by two small ceiling lights that offered no illumination to the shower, the shower head sprayed any way other than onto you, breakfast consisted of cold boiled eggs, jam and either soggy or hard bread,...
