Lastminute.com describes the Kenzi Fahra as a '5 star, luxurious hotel', unfortunately I would have to disagree! It's not 5 star or luxurious but it is a nice enough hotel in a great location for seeng all the sights of Marrakech without being in the centre of the Medina.
We actually booked this hotel as a "top secret hotel" so had no idea what we were getting! We just wanted a good location and an outside pool area. When we arrived a big coach trip had just shown up so the reception was chaos! The first room we were given was quite a walk from the main hotel and had twin beds, so back to reception we went. The second room was in the main building but had no balcony and also faced the main road. The safe didn't work and the shower worked in bursts of hot water (the rest of the time cold). After a night of traffic we asked to change rooms again. Our third and final room was fine, although the AC didn't work and the shower was either scorching hot or freezing cold!
On the bright side, the service (reception, breakfast) and food selection available at breakfast were brilliant. The pool area is also nice and clean, and comfortable.
Would I recommend this hotel? Sure. If you don't mind big touristy hotels! We felt safe here and it was nice to be able to escape the craziness of the Medina by jumping in a taxi or walking back (20 mins).
