This is a gorgeous hotel whose prime is clearly past. Though it has surely lost its former grandeur, the public spaces are still quite impressive and it retains plenty of advantages: its central and convenient location, right near the Jemaa el Fna; enormous rooms with their own bath "complexes"; a great hammam (though admittedly I have nothing to compare it to) with a beautiful heated underground pool (in addition to two outdoor pools); and a very extensive breakfast buffet (including made-to-order omelets as well as pork products). Everyone was nice, the grounds were lovely, and the staff at the front desk and restaurant spoke good English. On the down side, it's hard to imagine why they keep the ratty red rugs in the hallways, which make the place look like a flophouse. Simply replacing the rugs would do wonders! Similarly, the extra touch of using fresh flowers everywhere was ruined because they are using dead roses. The room had multiple sets of interior doors (one to the toilet room, another to the changing room), all of which had clunky pendant knockers that looked pretty but created a racket whenever you moved through them. In the winter, the concrete bathroom and toilet room were quite cold. You had to go through two sets of doors to wash your hands after using the toilet. It took quite a long time for check in (we had to wait about 30 minutes to get into our room), but by the same token (and probably for this reason) they were quite generous about late check-out. If you're coming to Marrakesh for a honeymoon or to hang out in your room, this is probably not the place for you. But if you're going to spend your time in the souks, this is a good value.
