“This hotel was good, near for walking to all local sights”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2011

everybody has reviewed this hotel as bad but it is rather cheap. I loved the fact there is a busy road outside the front of the hotel as it allowed me to see the real traffic and things that go on all night here ! the breakfast was great and you can help yourself too as much as you like. ( I took a carrier bag full of food to give out to the beggars rather than giving them cash !) the room was cleaned everyday and was a good size. yep I would stay again. it is not a luxury hotel but I paid 300 pounds for 3 weeks including flights. delighted !

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2011

We stayed here for 1 night AOA on a full board basis. We got this really cheap though Alpharooms. When you arrive at the hotel the foyer is quite grand for 3 stars. Our room was a triple even though there were only two of us so it was quite roomy - it did however need updating. I was a little disappointed that we got a view of a brick wall but as we were only staying 1 night I wasnt too concerned. The beds were really comfy and the TV had a few english channels for anyone interested.

Food is pretty average to poor but there are loads of places to eat out and Moroccan food is fab. There is a supermarket right underneath rhe hotel that sells lovely fresh cakes - the chocolate ones are lovely.

The pool area is small but there are some loungers. Beware no sun on this area until 4pm ish in the winter.

The location is great just across from the city wall and the start of the madina. You can walk to the square through the medina in around 20 mins. This far side of the medina where this hotel is is the best with the kind of shops and stalls where the locals shop. You will really see something different!

Stayed at Riad Mogador as part of a (trek holiday) package. This is a budget hotel with no other pretensions. If you are staying here, ensure that you ask for a room facing the rear of the hotel (away from the noisy main ring road).

I booked 4 nights here with my partner on a half board basis. Having arrived we were given the wrong room, instead of a double we were shown a twin bed room. Explaining this to the porter we were moved to a double room. We accepted without looking at the room first. We quickly discovered that there was a patch of rust on the left hand side of the bottom of the bathtub. The bathroom door did not shut close. There was no towels and hangers available either. We had to ask for these but thought not to make a fuss to complain as we assumed this is what we get for staying at a cheap hotel. But it got worse... There were no hairdryer in the room. I assumed that the reception would provide one when asked for it, but it turned out I was wrong so I had to dry my hair with a newspaper instead! 2 nights into our stay while watching tv the french channels and the one english channel- BBC world news, was removed. My partner called to have this switched back on the following day. The third morning we got an early and inappropriate wake up phone call to say that we were to depart even though we had another 2 nights to stay - comes to show how unorganised reception was! The dinner on offer each night was a disappointment, the bread was always stale and chewy as though we were given leftovers from the morning or day before. The food always seemed as though it was just re-heated because by the time we ate it it was always warm as well. The drinks were not included and they did not mention this before so for the first night we ended up paying 13DHM each when in the local supermarket just below the hotel costs only 4DHM. The waiters in the restaurant were unfriendly and arrogant the whole time. Breakfast buffet was half decent but the coffee was always luke warm and the juice was a horrible concentrated orange flavoured drink which had a sickly sweet taste. I did not understand why they could not provide fresh orange juice, having observed that most of Marrakech had orange trees around which were untouched and cost only 3DHM for a fresh glass in Jma al fnaa. Last of all the taxi driver which was recommended by the hotel porter to take us to the airport tried to rip us off at the end, even though a price was agreed before we went in. My partner was very unhappy with this.
We would most defintely stay in only 4-5* hotels if we ever return to Marrakech for peace of mind and better quality, service and enjoyment of stay. DO NOT STAY HERE NO MATTER HOW CHEAP.

Stayed here for 4 nights.
Good points: location, walking distance to Ville Nouville and Jemaa el Fna but very noisy next to bus station particurlarly at 6:15 every morning!

Bad points:
Very tired decoration and fittings. Towel rail hanging from wall, no shower head bracket, no plug, toilet seat falling off, no coat hangers in wardrobe.
Senior staff are ignorant, arrogant and act as if everything is a hassle to them.
Room was never cleaned properly, rubbish on floor remained in the same place for all 4 days. Bathroom never cleaned.
Very dissapointed in the hotel, economical price but general hygiene should be as standard.

We stayed there for 4 nights and I can't say we had an awful time. The rooms were medium size, the beds seemed a little old (but it's just my personal impression), the AC was a blessing and the bathroom was large and clean. I'll give it a plus also for the location (10-15 min by foot to the Medina), the fast internet connection (although available only at the reception) and for the supermarket near it.
The things I disliked were: the smell on the hallways, the noise (you could never keep an open window), the same breakfast every single day, the tiny pool (for such a big hotel).

Beware when booking riad mogadors in Marrakech, there are several all from the same company but in different locations. We choose this for 2 nights because we had an early bus scheduled.The hotel is not bad, just a little dated and worn and a musty smell everywhere. The rooms were clean and not too noisy seeing we were looking over a busy road. The main square is about 15 minutes away and it feels safe to be walking aroun at night.If you do not need the proximity to the bus station there are better options available
