We were so lucky to Stay in this charming hotel! After the hectic an noisy Marrakech this is the perfect place to stay. We are a young couple and for us the place was very romantic! How nice were people who are working there, you can not even describe it! The rooms were authentic and new, very clean and incredibly beautiful! But the greatest thing in this hotel is the owner Adam! He is such a friendly, helpful and just an amazing man! Thank you so much! We are definitely coming back in September .

Fantastic accommodation and always a helping hand for transfers. Host Adam knows his way around Marrakech and found us restaurants exactly to our liking. He can do a golf tour and I would not hesitate to go back next time in Marakech.

Little gem of a hotel - very welcoming, relaxing and quiet. Nothing is too much trouble from the staff - ALL lovely and happy people. Great breakfasts - tasty and plenty. Ideal location too - we were so relieved to be away from the medina during the day but took the free shuttle in whenever we wanted to go in. Great advice from staff as to where to eat, places to see, souks to visit etc. A truly wonderful place to stay and wouldn't hesitate in recommending to others. would far rather this personal little hotel than any 5 star - it has everything you need - lovely pool, sun loungers and towels, good places to eat within walking distance, shopping mall and even staff who will help you learn another language - Italian! Ciao : ))

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the pool are the nicest

Me and my partner stayed at this hotel for 7 nights and it made our trip all the more enjoyable.

Adam the owner was extremely helpful and informative plus the hotel is only around a 10/15 minute drive from the Medina. The hotel also provides a free shuttle service daily.

Would come back to this hotel, all the staff are very friendly and hospitable.

Some reviewers say that the location is not great but we felt it was a perfect location away from the hussle and bustle of the Medina.

The weather was also excellent for our stay in February with some days reaching 28 degrees so we got some colour on our cheeks!

The place, as maybe you can find on a map, is not very close to the medina (jama el fna square) but if you don't mind walking you can make it in about 20-25 minutes.
The area where it is located is nice and you won't be bored in the night, also (remarkable) it is very safe at any time and you'll find restaurants and a mall with supermarket and different attractions, some others like a bowling are still under construction. In case you don't want to walk to the city there is an on-demand transportation service from 11:00 to 18:00. They take you to the center or pick you up there if you request it.
The staff is friendly and they are able to speak French, English, Marroquian Arabic and can manage some Spanish. The breakfast is exquisite and they serve a generous quantity.
About the rooms: ours was very clean with cable TV service, A/C, hot water working perfectly and enough light and good decoration (but to be honest, not too many people care about it, no?). No mini bar here, sorry.
The trick: we booked trough a well-known booking Internet site, and they were going to charge us extra for the airport-hotel transportation (and was a expensive fare, more than a taxi from the airport), but they said that I we were have done it on their website would have been free... True or not, you have to find out and let me know, please!
In short terms: I definitely recommend it if you don't mind the distance to the city center.

This is a nice cozy boutique hotel. The staff was very friendly and Adam the owner was very kind and helpful. Great swiming pool. The hotel is 5 mins away from the Medina with a shopping mall right in front. I fully recommend it.

My daughter and I have just returned from a 4 night stay at the AlbaKech House, Marrakech. We were warmly welcomed on arrival with a glass of mint tea and shown to our lovely suite overlooking the Atlas Mountains. Nothing was too much trouble for Adam and his friendly smiling staff including his really helpful driver who drove us into town to the Medina. We had breakfast in the garden each morning with a varied selection of fruit, waffles, pancakes and yoghurts; we also had delicious Moroccan dinners on two nights in the hotel. Adam organised a trip to the mountains for us which we thoroughly enjoyed and had an interesting day. After spending time visiting the sights and sounds of the Medina it was great getting back to the Alba Kech for the peace and tranquillity and to relax in the beautiful garden. I t was also very convenient to walk down the road to shop in Carrefour for a bottle of wine or a beer to drink on our veranda. We would definitely recommend Alba Kech House and would love to go back.
