The hotel location is about 10 min taxi ride from Marrakech airport,(pay no more than 100 dirhum, they'll happly take advantage of your wallet so arrange a price before departure a "petit" taxi should be 70 dirhum but expect the 100?) The hotel is good place to escape the hustle, it is a 5 minute walk from Mcdonalds and KFC, next to the hotel is a local crepe' restaurant, there is also a local fried fish cafe style restaurant, it is quite an experience but you get the hang of it! There are plenty of atm machines/banks & exchange bureas, over the road a small mini market offers almost anything, and the pattiserre on the other side is remarkable! I found the hotel to be spotless, the staff are very friendly, but proffessional they will assist you but not pester you,we stayed for 1 week, our room had 3 comfy clean beds, the air con was good and stays on even if you take out the electric key card :) there was a small fridge, but take a travel kettle if you want that early morning cuppa, although to their credit a continental style buffet breakfast starts at 06:30 -10:30am.The maids/laundery work daily it is a good clean hotel, the rooftop pool although a little small is a must in the Morrocan heat, it opens at 9 am don't go to late you might miss out on the limited bed's, they provide you with towels and parasols, there are toilets and a shower and there is also a restaurant on this floor too, (currently under some construction or re-fit?),
all in all it was a great place to stay, brush up on some basic French if you can it will help you.
