my teenage daughter and i stayed 5 nights in this lovely 3 star hotel
it was a good location in the new city, gueliz area with kfc, macdonalds nearby, pizza hut a good 20 mins walk
the hotel staff were friendly, polite and pleasant, they gave some good tips and advice especially mahmoud ( he was exceptionally helpful and kind to us), the restaurant staff were also pleasant, filled up water bottles for us in the evening, the porters outside helped us getting taxis and negotiating prices for the taxi rides
breakfast was adequate enough for the morning, did not eat in restaurant as we had bb
the bedroom was nice size and good size bathroom too, beds were fine, we asked for soft pillows which they provided, no problem at all
avoid 1st floor as the restaurant is in 1st floor as you hear a lot of noise in the morning, we were on 4th floor, there is a pool on the terrace, nice to relax there and read but it was too hot when we were there.
all in all we were happy wit this hotel , i would say it was a 3.5 star, the disappointment was there was no safe in the room
if you like fish, prawns etc there is a nice restaurant 2 min away, next door is a restaurant called "winoo" which is reasonable
tips,,,,,, bargain in the square when shopping, and even bargain for taxi price,
you may get troubled in the square to buy things but just ignore them and walk away, beware of men who say they will help you to find certain items you want to buy an dthen after spending time with you they want you to pay them, they wil take you down many alley ways and different shops and make you walk!! better to refuse their help as you end up wasting lots of time with them!
we loved marrakech and i would go again and stay at hotel almas, the hotel turned out to be better than what i had anticipated, my daughter and i both enjoyed our holiday there v much
