“The Amine - What you pay for is what you get”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2012

Just returned from 10 days in the madness that is Marakesh .. Amibe Hotel Staff we found to be very friendly and very helpful.. breakfast was basic so was the Evening meal.. We did eat out on a couple of occasions at the Restruant next door which was very nice ..

Our room was on the 2nd floor and did have air condoitioning in them . The rooms were basic but clean and tidy .. fresh towels and beds were made every day of our 10 day visit.

Pool.. Large and a welcome retreat when the sun soared to 40 plus.. Sun beds were plenty and had cushion on as well..

Things to do around the hotel come night fall was limited.. Snack pool bar was good value for money .. But there was No entertainment ..

The hussle of the sukes and markets are a taxi rideaway at 20 derhams = £2.00 was well worth the bartering..

The hotel had its own security guard and was safe and sound...

All in all we enjoyed our time there and got what we paid for ..

For English travellers we found it had alot fo French people there , but this gave us a good opportunity to brush up on the old french lessons from school ..

The Massage and Gym opened when they felt like it .. But this was not high on our things to do in a day...

This hotels requires a major refurbishment.

Rooms are supposed to be air conditioned but do not cope well with hot summer weather averaged +40`c whilst we were there (August). Rooms very basic with the usual things broke i.e. shower holder, sockets, etc.

Personally.... the meals were well below par. Staff helpful and quite cheerful, swimming pool good size and cleaned on a daily basis, no fridge in room (and you really could do with one.) Good location for getting about, taxis always available outside hotel ready to rip you off and take you to places you don't want to go. Plenty of local beggars on the main street outside ready to greet you with gimme gimme.

Overall.... okay for a couple of nights. I can honestly say I wanted to go to Marrakech. I am not so keen to return... but each to their own."

Room Tip: Get ready to haggle.

The hotel was, as we thought, cheap and cheerful but a good base for visiting the Medina and Atlas mountains. It was fine for a short visit but most definitely not 4 star. Rooms very dated and in need of some paint. The room was dark even though it was a room with balcony and over looking the pool area. The air con was a little suspect and the sockets left a lot to be desired. There was little to no running hot water in the shower although that didn't matter when the weather was so hot. The room was cleaned daily and the bedding clean and beds comfortable. The pool area was good and snack bar and cleaning staff friendly. Food for breakfast was ok but the orange juice was watered down. The dining room was dark and the staff stood around the outside and watched you eat. The selection of food was strange and the pancakes took for ever to be cooked on a tiny little hot plate. We didn't try the evening menu. Had to walk to the garage next door for ice cream as the snack bar had run out.
Wifi only available in the lobby.
The main hotel staff were not at all welcoming with the woman on reception coming across as particularly rude. Don't allow the hotel porter near your hand luggage ..almost certain it was he who took my purse out of my rucksack when he whisked my luggage away to the boot of the transfer minibus as the purse was no longer there when we arrived at the airport. No proof but certainly a dampener to what had been a good 5 days.
The taxis outside are very cheap and reliable. £1.50 ride to the Medina. If there is no taxi there the friendly man on the gate will call one for you.
If you can see past the hotel staff the hotel is well situated for visiting the city and beyond and the rooms are comfortable enough.Get your food elsewhere and you can enjoy a good cheap holiday in Marrakech.

Stayed here in August 2010 , I don't even know what to say, this hotel is terrible! Food was cold and tasteless, plate and cups were chipped. The rooms had no air conditioning and it's so hot you really do need it. The pool was tiny and dirty and my little boy was I'll after 2 days some moved to a 5 star hotel round he corner which was amazing. I wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone.

You get what you pay for so as a cheap hotel it was OK and fairly good value. Breakfast was bad as the cups were dirty and the food was just tolerable. The dinner was tasteless. The best place to eat was on the patio but this was set aside for smokers and non smokers were relegated to the dark and dingy indoor dining area.The redeeming feature would have been the staff who were all very friendly however I had my scarf stolen from my room despite being reassured that it was safe to leave things behind.I was very disappointed by this. This along with the unsafe wiring etc has really put me off this hotel. This hotel could be a very nice one as it is big and spacious but it desperately needs to be refurbished at least to improve its safety.

Sorry, but this is going to be a bad review. Our room was grubby; the toilet smelly, never cleaned properly. What we thought was some filler in the corner, on closer inspection turned out to be a dried up condom (there the whole week).Extractor fan not working. A/c hardly working.T.V. stopped working.Had to search for shop proprietor during opening hours . Restarant could not serve cofee after dinner. There's more, but I think that's enough.

Having been to Marrakech on many occasions and loving it when we were invited to a colleagues wedding we jumped at the chance of going to Marrakech again. The hotel was part of the wedding arrangments and all I can say is we got what we paid for. Nowhere near four star! Although one needs to understand that the stars in Morocco dont shine in the same manner as in Europe. The grand impressive lobby is soon lost with the minimalistic bedrooms with the mere basics, TV that one would find in a museum. Nice pool though and I suppose that it was a base to crash out. After the celebrations. Would not stay again through choice unless I was on a tight budget. Nice location as you are a taxi ride away from the centre, 30 dirhams, remember to always agree a price before you ride off. Dont be decived by everyone who says,"Yes" does not necessarily understand English.........
