“North african Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2012

Some tips on the hotel:
- breakfast is good, breakfast staff could be better
- take a mini suite swimming pool side, they are fantastic! we had n°211
- ground floor pool in easter holiday is not heated and cold, roof pool is heated
- the spa and hamman are superb, one of the bests i have ever been in
- indian restaurant on the roof is very good, we ate there twice in five days.
- restaurant Paris is nothing special
- cocktails in the piano bar are very good, they know the classics although they are not on the menu, the wodka-martini dry tasted very good.
- reception staff is very helpfull and polite
- if you don't like smoking people in your room, restaurant, breakfast room, ... just avoid Morrocco.
- the "snackbar" at the pool for lunch has a very good price-quality range.

If i would return to Marrakech for a city trip (nothing longer) i would choose again for Les Jardins de la Koutoubia.

Room Tip: choose swimming pool side

The hotel is less than 5 minutes away by walk from Jemaa Fna. Inside the hotel is fantastic and relaxing, with very good service. The room was avery day ornament with roses petals.
Very good restaurants in case you do not want to go out for dinner.
Only one think I do not like, was Clarins SPA, they want me to pay because I used the pool, they do not tell me in advance that you have to contract a service for use the pool.

This is a beautiful hotel to which to retire after a day of touring the hectic city. The pool is lovely, highly recommend enjoying cocktails there at the end of the day.

This hotel has the best location. It's just around the corner from Place Jemaa El Fna and the Souks. Once inside the hotel it's so relaxing. Great Moroccan atmosphere with all the comforts. Some reviews say the decor is a little 'tired' but we saw renovations are in hand so this should not put you off. Breakfast is great and plentiful with pancakes and eggs made to order as well as pastries, fruit salad,cereals, yoghurts etc. There are many places just to sit and relax and it is as it appears in the website photos.

We stayed here in the peak summer season and chose it because if its locality and reviews.
Indeed it was a fabulous place to retire to once the expeditions of the jema el fna were over for the day. It is painfully close ( literally a 1-2 minute walk) to The Place yet exudes auch calmness that you feel like you have left that hustle bustle so far back.
Once inside the hotel, you can enjoy brilliant service from reception and concierge service. The pool is just ahead through the doors that divide the riad style courtyard from the lovely reception area. The rooms we stayed in was a junior suite and was lovely with a outside seating area next to another pool and the french themed restaurant Relais de Paris- lovely food and waiters.
There is a spa and hamam service available with Clarins and was also a lovely experience. A small clean gym area is located near the spa. The breakfast area is by the pool or just inside if you like to stay near the serving area and the staff again more than happy to assist. The breakfast, though repetitive, is nice and filling but of kot much variety- continental.
There is a piano bar just besides the reception on the right and is quite nice in the evenings. Besides the pool areas there are several rooms for ones relaxation and a pool table with tv too.
On the terrace there is another pool and is quite popular during the summer. There is a nice indian themed restaurant too - a little pricey and service can be slow but the food is delicious.

We stayed over a weekend in February. We used the car service that was offered by the hotel, and were met at the airport and whisked away in a lovely mercedes. We were so glad we did. On approach to the hotel entrance, we wondered what we had gotten ourselves into. But you walk through the doors into a lovely oasis. The grounds are very pretty, and the service was wonderful. We were upgraded to a suite, and the room was gorgeous. And everything was spotlessly clean. The hotel is just around the corner from the main square, so the location is excellent if you like to be in the middle of the action. We ate lunches by the main pool, and although simple, the food was good. We ate at Narwama, the restaurant between two sections of the hotel, and really enjoyed our meals and the atmosphere. I'm not sure, though, whether this restaurant was actually part of the hotel. We truly enjoyed our stay, and would not hesitate to recommend it to our friends.

Hotel has a good location in the heart of Medina: short distance to Jemaa El Fna and souks. Breakfast was good and plentiful, variety of beverages were also great (they serve alcohol thank good). Our room was quite large and cozy with separate bedroom and livingroom, separate bathroom and toilet were very pleasant too. Hotel has very nice lounge areas and pools, interior is very Maroccan but also a little shabby. Although the hotel seems to be high end hotel, it’s hardly value for five star rating. Rooms were very over-priced and we didn’t get value for our expectations. Staff was impassive and spoken English were clumsy. We didn’t use the spa because it was ridiculously expensive: extra expense on high room rate, no thanks. Free wi-fi works only at the reception lobby and hardly even there. Hotel’s Moroccon restaurant was bad experience, very expensive and just a poor and tasteless food, we got better food at Jemaa El Fna food stalls.

Room Tip: Take a Patio room, they have a small private garden.
