“"2nd visit"”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

We enjoyed our stay so much last year we went back again to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary, again you can not fault the hotel or staff, the room we had this time had a baloney overlooking the pool which we requested on booking, Adam could not do enough for you! Fatima is amazing she deals with the breakfast and never stops running making sure everyone is served, all staff are friendly and helpful, Adam arranged for me to have a massage and hamman at the hotel which was amazing, a big thank you. Will be back next year out of Ramadan. Oh travellers just a quiet note you do not need a towel for the pool the hotel supplies, saves on space if you are hand luggage!!

A truly fantastic experience- we found this gem on tripadvisor and definitely can confirm it deserves the great ratings!
The small boutique hotel is perfect for a relaxing holiday in the sun- a lovely exotic and stylish setting by the pool makes it a fantastic getaway. The rooms are very spacious (we were in a junior suite) and all necessary equipment there. The hotel offers a lovely breakfast service to start a day of tanning with.
The hotel is located a 10min drive from the medina and offers a free of charge car service back and forth between 10am and 6pm. While the hotel only serves breakfast, it is very close to a shopping mall with several restaurants and a supermarket. Also close by is a restaurant we would definitely recommend for both food and setting- Al Fassia.
Great memories from an amazing little oasis in Marrakech!!!

we stayed end of juni.
nice hotel with pool.location only important,
if you want to stay near airport[5 minutes]
rooms nice, comfi beds,flat tv.ours hat balcon.
sitting place very nice ,but very warm.
breakfast in a very beautiful room,but
breakfast itself just ok.
personal very friendly.
the only black point was the pick up service from
the airport.we were charged 24 euros for both of us.
if i was alone that would be 12 euros.
that is not fair ,but they use your situation to find
a safe way to the hotel.it is only 5 minutes and should cost no more than 8 euros max.
except that nice stay and the hotel to recommend

The AlbaKech House is an unparalleled, villa-styled hotel and is perfectly situated in a newly developed tourist area, and it's about 10 minutes away from the airport, the medina (old town square, main town of Marrakech) and the new town. But, the hotel offers a free shuttle service that can drop you off at these places. Timings are within reason. As soon as I checked out of the airport, a driver was sent by the hotel to collect me.


My room was delightfully decorated and extremely spacious. The hotel has its own hamman, and I can definitely recommend the massage as well. It was an absolutely, essential pleasure after a hike up the mountains to the waterfalls, in Ourika Valley.


Just across the road from the hotel, are plenty of fast food outlets and restaurants, a shopping mall and a supermarket for convenience.


The owner Adam is extremely knowledgeable of the area and is particularly attentive. The AlbaKech House staffs are amazing, extremely friendly and helpful, and they couldn't do enough for me. They are able to speak English, French and Arabic. Adam prides himself on providing both a personal and outstanding service.


This lovely gem of a hotel is a sanctuary to escape to and would definitely appeal to all types of tourists, and my only regret is not staying longer!

Room Tip: You must try the in-house hamman and massage!

The Albakech House was phenomenal. The hotel was small, intimate, clean and wonderfully staffed. While it is outside of the city, they provide a driver to take you downtown during the day and it is only a short taxi ride away. The little garden/pool area is perfect for sunning, swimming and relaxing outside of the hectic downtown area. We had a ground floor room which was very big, although dark, and it stayed cool during the day which was great (there was aircon in any case). The room was beautifully decorated with Moroccan lanterns, big leather furniture and a giant comfy bed. The bathroom was recently updated with new chrome fixtures and a high power rain showerhead. Breakfast was fantastic and the service was of such a high standard. One day we slept in until very late and the kind staff brought us omlettes in our room, despite having closed the kitchen. The hammam in the basement is very intimate - we had a couples hammam treatment and I had a massage which was fantastic. The owner, a Scot, is very friendly and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend the Albakech House to everyone. My husband and I will be back for sure. Recommendation: Book through the hotel directly for a cheaper fare than using other hotel websites.

We spent 4 night at Albakech House and were so impressed with the hotel, the staff and the service. Starting with mint tea on arrival, a car service in and out of the Medina throughout the day and an excellent pool to relax by. Albakech House is about 10 minutes by car to the Medina, but don't let that put you off. It is a sanctuary to escape back too after a crazy day in the bustling Medina. There were plenty of restaurants nearby and even a supermarket for convenience. We truly couldn't have asked for more during our stay here. The rooms were immaculate and very comfortable and I recommend this hotel to anyone looking to travel to Marrakech.

Stayed 3 nights with some friends and whilst I enjoyed it, the surroundings could be better.Although it´s only 10 mins drive from the airport and same to the medina, the area is a bit of a mish mash of unfinished buildings, upmarket hotels, shopping malls and waste ground.However,the big plus of this hotel has to be the pool , which in the 40C heat we experienced at the end of June was a godsend, maybe not so important in December though.The room I stayed in( Number 19)was certainly big enough, high ceilings and good sized shower and a terrace that had uninterrupted views ...... of the unfinished building next door. The staff were all pretty much friendly ,however when asking for something to be done e.g. wake up calls, "yes" didn´t mean it was actually going to happen, but hey! this is Morocco and things do tend to get lost in translation.The hotel also has a hammam and I can definately recommend the massage from Niama after a hard day on the dune buggies. Overall , if you can get over the area and you´re looking for a place to chill out and relax for a few days you could do a lot worse than Albakech House.
