Excellent hotel for my second stay in Marrakech. Wanted a hotel with a pool, didn't want to be right in the hustle and bustle when staying in a Riad in the old quarters and did not want to be far away from all the action.

Hotel Almas ticked all the boxes.

Clean room, big bed, comfy, great shower, even a decent movie channel for late night movies before going sleep.

If you are into sunbathing the roof is excellent, also where the swimming pool is located.

Staff are friendly and even gave us late check for no extra cost.

Breakfast was fine. Mixture of cold options, plus pancakes and boiled eggs.

Great restaurant next door which was always full of locals and food was so cheap yet tasty, especially pizza. Also a popular fish place across the road, so you will not go hungry.

Superb location if you want to be walking distance from all the action in sqaure or a cheap taxi ride. Gueliz is more of a modern area, with excellent restaurants so if you want to stay amongst the history this is not the area for you. The hotel matches the area. Also close to the train and coach station.

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights in April 2013 and were pleased with our choice. The rooms were spacious and comfortable, nice bathroom, huge double bed. The staff were very helpful, one staff member even walked us down to another hotel to change our sterling into local currency as they can only change euros. Breakfast was good, as long as you are not expecting full english, this is Morocco after all, there was enough to choose from. Also real fresh orange juice, not the powdered variety often on offer in many hotels. It is about a 20 minute walk to the Medina and there are lots of shops and eating places close by and a very pleasant park just around the corner.

Have recently returned from a 4 night stay at the Almas Hotel. I am very well traveled and would normally stay in a 4* hotel so I was very pleased with this 3* hotel. Could not fault it - room and bathroom were very clean and spacious. Breakfast continental which was acceptable. Swimming pool small but adequate and again very clean.

Where the hotel is situated is ideal for restaurants and shops. Next door are some really good and cheap restaurants. There is a fish restaurant we had a lobster for £5.

It is a 20 minute walk to the old town but taxi's are very cheap shouldn't cost more than 20 dirhams

Would certainly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are quieter.

The room was very clean, spacious and comfortable. Breakfast decent enough. Located in an area that is full of reasonable priced eateries for the local. Delicious, if you are brave enough to try them out. Take a note that There is a 2.4euro per person charge.

Having booked a double room for 3 nights, we were delighted to have been allocated a small suite, which was spacious, clean and well equipped. The hotel staff were friendly, helpful and spoke reasonable English, although it is very useful to have some knowledge of French if visiting Morocco. The hotel kindly looked after our luggage for 3 days whilst we were on a tour, we then subsequently stayed at the hotel for a further 2 nights, this time is a spacious double room. The room although not quite as well equipped as the suite (no hair dryer) was perfectly adequate. There was an extensive buffet breakfast laid out each morning, however the evening meals offered less choice. As mentioned in previous reviews Internet access was limited, we found we only had access in the evenings, but this did not pose a problem for us.
In summary we can't believe Hotel Almas is only 3*, it offers great value for money!

Room Tip: Room 204 a very nice double suite. Would avoid rooms on 1st floor as the restaurant terrace opens ou...

We stayed recently and were in room 405. The Internet coverage in the room was none, and throughout the hotel it was poor to none. If Internet is important then I would suggest staying elsewhere.
If Internet is not important then it is worth some consideration, the room and hotel were clean, and the air conditioning good. The overall rating, excluding Internet factor, would be a 4 out of five, only marked down by excessive street noise and a very average breakfast.
