“interesting!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2013

Probably the cheapest beer in the medina... We onl went for evening beers rather than staing there. It felt like a waiting waiting room in a colonial train station. A very varied an transient crowd, but not an atmosphere given to easy conversation Ach well, it is was interesting!

Popped in here for a beer. Ordered. after an extraordinary long wait & two reminders beer arrived . Unopened & no glasses we waited a further parched 10 mins for them to be opened.. We didn't wait for the glasses, the bottles were empty before they arrived!!
Yes it is atmospheric, the waiters are living on past reputations, assumed the large note we left consisted of their tip and looked miffed when we asked for the change & handed over a small gratuity which to be honest they were lucky to get!

Came here twice, in the space of one year. You can have a nice cold beer or some wine in a decadent post colonial time, with faces that looks from a dark movie from the 50's. Unsual movement up and down the stairs, looks like another business goes on...

I've only ever been here when in Marra to drink cold bear in the lobby bar. It's slightly seedy in a faded days of empire way, but the beer's fine. You don't always get charged the same amount for your drinks though, which is a bit naff. There's a few Moroccan barflys and loads of people smoke. Interesting characters too, but i don't know if i'd feel that comfortable here as a single woman.
The thing is, there are so few places to grab a cold beer, and this is just very convenient, and you can people-watch.

Visited Marrakech in December 2011 and found this relic of the Colonial Era was one of the few places one could just walk in, much like any UK bar, and have an alcoholic drink without having to order a meal. Bit run down now, but must have been a quite spectacular watering hole. Staff friendly enough, especially so if you try a 'morning','please' or thankyou' in Arabic. Toilets-spotless.

I would like to appologise for the great review I gave the hotel/brothel back in May. I have just returned from the holiday from hell at the brothel known as Grand Hotel Tazi. I cannot understand how a hotel can change in the space of 4/5 months. If you are looking for drugs/prostitutes MALE OR FEMALE then this is the place to go.. I had no sleep for 3 nights as the prostitutes work from the rooms all night, the rooms at the far end of the corridor where i stayed in May were now occcupied by the local POLICE !! the waiters who new me from before, either didnt give me my change or charged me more than before, everytime i tried to go to the bar myself i was cut off by the waiters who snatched my money. the maid didnt clean the room, but she had time to watch tv in my friends room and leave the door wide open when she left (ASSUMING IT WAS THE MAID AND NOT USED FOR PROSTITUTION). which he found on his return from a day trip. The last night I confronted the security guard a prostitute and her client at 03.00am outside my door. I was basically dismissed and informed by the prostitute it was the cats making all the noise, Silly me their cats can slam doors and talk, well I never!! Wont be going there again.....the cats are noisy..

Room Tip: Good room would be in another hotel

I have stayed at the Tazi three times, most recently with my dad in June for four nights. The location of the hotel is excellent - you can walk to all the main tourist attractions. The hotel itself is slightly aged, however I would say that this adds to the charm of it. The rooms are massive and are decorated in an original style. They are clean, and both the air con and TV worked. The staff speak excellent English and are always willing to help.

The pool area looks slightly run down, but if you can get over this it is a great place to sunbath and virtually empty most of the time. The pool is clean and you can be served drinks and food there if you request.

The lobby is a good place to hang out and have a cold beer or a glass of wine - small plates of popcorn and olives are served with your drinks which is a nice touch.

The only real downside to the Tazi is the food - the menu at the restaurant is limited and overpriced for the quality. Breakfast is also poor. However, the Tazi is such good value that this is not a problem - there are plenty of other places to eat nearby and I wouldn't let this put you off, afterall, it's nicer not to eat in your hotel every night anyway!

Overall I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking to stay in a central location on a budget.
