“A little gem in the Kasbah”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2011

My husband and I chose Marrakech as a weekend destination from the UK, as it's only around 3 hours away from London. We were looking to stay somewhere special for 4 nights, and were told about this new 'Art Deco' hotel in the Kasbah, so we decided to give it a try.

We were picked up from the airport by Jaguar limo and the drive to the Riad took about 10 minutes. From the moment we walked in we knew this place would be special: we walked down this cool, elegant corridor at the end of which stood an elegant Art Deco statue which seemed to greet us ! The place then 'opened' up onto a bright courtyard. We were greeted by a smartly dressed, friendly (and multilingual!) gentleman, who turned out to be the owner, who showed us around. Every room (10 of them) looked amazing and different in style.

We slept in the Africa-inspired Clement Rousseau room, which was very large and comfortable, with flatscreen TV, complimentary (non-alcoholic) minibar, ensuite bathroom, and even a large marble fireplace, which they lit up for us. Meals consisted of delicious Moroccan dishes and our waiter Mohammed was excellent. We loved the Winston Churchill bar - very cosy, with comfy leather seats. The hotel isn't far from Djemma-El-Fna square and souks etc so it is a great location for sightseeing as well.

This hotel was nothing like we had ever seen before, so different and full of beautiful works of art. It was a lovely break from cold grey London and we are looking forward to going back !!
