This boutique hotel is the perfect place to stay in Marrakesh.
Upon arrival, Miriam greeted us and gave us a tour of the property. This 27-room hotel has little courtyards with 4-5 rooms dotted around each. The room is spacious, and ours came with a spiral staircase leading out to a private terrace. The bed and bathroom are always key for me, and in this case, the mattress was good and the shower was forceful and hot. There was also a complimentary fruit basket, Morrocan pastries and water awaiting in the room upon our arrival.
Each morning, they serve a Morrocan breakfast, and also have a large pool and roof terrace. In fact, I am sitting next to the pool writing this review right now!
The staff is extremely attentive, always smiling and happy to provide anything you may need. Prior to arriving, we emailed them asking how much a taxi would cost from the train station, and they responded within a couple hours with all the information we could need. We arrived at 10pm and we were hungry, so they made space for us in the restaurant. The following morning, Miriam and Myra sat down with us to make sure we had all the information we need, and walked us through the map and key sites.
Some reviewers may complain about the location, but after spending 1-2 days visiting the medina, you'll be glad you are staying outside of it. The location is about a 10 minute cab ride from the medina, and cabs are easy to get. So as long as you are willing to spend 20-60 Dirham (20-30 during the day, 40-60 during the night, and you are willing to negotiate with the taxi drivers, you'll be fine. (Note: We often went out to do site seeing during the day, came back, and then went out again in the evening for dinner/drinks/nightlife. We had no trouble getting taxis from the medina or the new city . Many would ask for 100+ dirham, so we had to negotiate. Some drove away, but we were okay with it and always found another taxi, willing to take us for the prices listed above)
In general, I can't think of a better place to stay. The hotel is beautiful, the restaurant is great, and the staff is friendly, kind and knowledgable. 5 stars. I'd recommend this place to anyone!
