“Hotel Almas”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013

We stayed for 6 nights in August 2013. Very clean and large rooms (ours had a balcony). Breakfast not much selection. Didn't use the restaurant in the evening (pretty basic) as plenty of more attractive restaurants close by. Location for us was perfect close to new shopping area, approx 30 mins walk to Jemaa el Fnaa square or 20 dirhams (if your lucky) by taxi. No bar in hotel but Acima large supermarket nearby (approx 10 min) walk has a reasonable selection of wines for apero's. Rooftop pool very welcome but pretty cold even in August smallish deck area around poolside but vacant loungers available on each of our visits. Hotel staff very helpfull.
All in all highly recommended and excellent value.

We stayed at the hotel for 4 nights in August 2013. The hotel was nice and clean and worth the money we paid. The staff were very nice and helpful and always gave us good advice when we asked about sightseeing and excursions and even provided with a map marked with the tourist hotspots. We booked the Atlas mountain tour through the hotel which was an amazing experience and must see. There was no safety deposit box in the room...however when my husband enquired about it ttwice, they brought us up a safe to keep in the room which was very helpful.
The rooftop pool looks very nice and clean...the pool itself was really cold so no one was hardly ever there.

The hotel is a 20-30 min walk from the square. We walked it once and got the horse and carriage ride back which was really nice. After that we went by taxi which was 15-20 dirhams. The square is an experience not to be missed, especially at night when it is packed out and bustling with food stalls, however we didn't eat there. The souks behind the square are full of beautiful things and good bargains, but you have to haggle good and proper in every single shop which can get very tiring towards the end.

Our Overall experience of Marrakech was really good...the morrocons are very kind and helpful people. We felt safe at all times.

Spent a couple nights here and still feel like I missed something. Buddy street out front but the noise did not come in and keep me up. One neat thing was the elevator. The panel inside that one uses to push the button to their floor is touch sensitive like a smartphone. It only gets annoying when the elevator gets a bit crowded and someone calls three floors and activates the alarm with their back by accident. The TV gets channels in, besides Arabic, French and German.

The hotel is in a good position 20 -30mins walk from medina, Taxi costs 20 dirhams if you negotiate.Good fish restaurant next door we ate there and it cost only 120 dirhams for three of us, you choose your own fish and they cook it there and then. Very busy when we were there. The hotel is a 3 star, we had a good size room on the 2nd floor no balcony, but it was clean and the bathroom was clean with toiletries and towels supplied. The beds were big and clean, though the pillows were hard. There was no safety deposit box which was not good, nor tea /coffee facilities. air con good, small fridge. The swimming pool was good on the roof, nice views and not many people up there, whilst we stayed there maximum 11 people at a time, at one time we had the pool to ourselves. Towels supplied. Breakfast is basic one type of cereal-cornflakes, pastries, rolls, dates -continental really. It is a good hotel to stay in and good value for money.

Room Tip: Rooms without balconies are bigger, and the ones with balconies only face other rooms, we stayed on...

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.

Room Tip: The corner suite was roomy, it had 2 double wardrobes half a dozen hangers, there were 3 bed's g...

Love this hotel. Staff charming and helpful, especially the room maid. Free wi-fi, good food. Short walk from the old town but far enough away to be uncrowded. A pleasant park nearby. I didn't try the swimming pool which was on the roof and apparently without shade.

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
THANK YOU HOTEL ALMAS !

Room Tip: dont take room on 1st floor as the restaurant is on 1st floor and it will be noisy, some roooms have...
