“Great budget hotel in the centre”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

Great hotel only seconds away from the main square. Only downside was that the sleep quality was not great as you can hear a lot of the action from the square and the call to prayer at 4am. Decent sized room however the bathroom was very small and more of a wet room. Breakfast on the roof every morning was slow but really delicious. Great views of the sunset from the roof terrace and the staff were very helpful with organising restaurants and taxis.

Everything is really clean, really near the heart of marahesh, you can see the shows from the roof. Really quiet even if in the middle of a really busy place, the hotel is quiet. It's a really good deal, would recomment.

10 meters from the heart of Marrakesh, Djemaa El Fna Square, this riad is central to everything! Excellent service from staff, including the more then helpful cleaners and the place is absolutely spotless!! The rooms have really dark tinting on the windows, which is perfect for sleeping in late. Good water pressure and plenty of hot water in the bathroom, comfortable and clean bedding/pillows. Lovely free breakfast, basic bread with butter and jam, plus orange juice and mint tea. Terrace area is perfect for relaxing, good view over the square and wifi in rooms and all common areas.

Great value for money! Highly recommended!!!

Really close (50m ?) to the Fna circus and market, this hotel could be a good deal if you want to stay hearth of the old city. The hotel itself is clean and rooms are a rather small but more than enough if you need a place to rest among the different shopping activities that you can have in the neighborhood.
They offer WIFI that at least in my case did not run in the room, only in the reception area and you have to check if there are towels hanging on the rest room. Breakfast at the comfortable terrace is not a great one but you´ll have a natural orange juice and standard tea.

This is a great place to stay especially if you don't want to spend a fortune. A friend recommended it to me and I'm grateful she did. It is dark in the rooms and they can be cold (in winter) but we didn't hear much noise (just the call to prayer in the morning). It's a bargain for the price especially as it includes breakfast which is perfectly fine.

Hotel Cecil is located right smack on Djemma-El-Fna, which is highly convenient though you have to put up with some noise coming from the square. Otherwise, this place is suitable for the budget traveller, not the most luxurious of places but adequate. The breakfast served is good for the amount paid.

This hotel had the best location, right next to the main square in Marrakech. We paid less than hostel prices for a private air conditioned room. The facilities were clean and we enjoyed COMPLIMENTARY breakfast on the roof each morning. The staff was incredible- helped us arrange trips outside the city and the owner even went to the train station for us on Ramadan to buy us our overnight tickets to Tanger because he was afraid we'd get confused or get ripped off by a cab. Once we checked out we could store our luggage safely and they made us feel welcome even after checkout. Only bad thing was difficulty finding it but this surely isn't the fault of the hotel :) Stay here!
