“good central location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

as i said, good central location, surprisingly good choice of bars(i thought morrocans didnt approve of alcohol). the 1st day here, i found what looked like an illegal drinking den near our hotel, full of men drinking and watching real madrid on the telly. beer cost 14dm(£1.20)a small bottle. following night found another bar next door to our hotel full of morrocan couples drinking+smoking in great abandon.
Now the hotel, rooms not luxurious, but what do you expect for £20 for 2 people, inc breakfast.
plus side, great shower, nice terrace, free wi-fi, modern flat screen tv.
Bus stops to the airport +medina close by. Good choice of budget price restaurants,esp the one facing the hotel.

Room Tip: ask for a room overlooking the side street, because in the late afternoon it gets pretty sunny

Me and my husband arrived to Marrakech late and were leaving early to the airport, we picked the hotel because of its location ,( its near the train station (just 5 min walk) not far from Djemaa el-fna ( 7 min by taxi and we paid 20 Dh) and 15-20 min by taxi to the airport ) and it was for a good price . We were asked for the marriage certificate (my husband is morrocan) even i have my husbands surname and we for 100% do not look like siblings. Even though we met a few couples around that would be interesting to see theyr marriage certificates.

Room size is OK , nice balcony, Acc was working well , the bed is small but was comfortable enough for one night stay. But i have to complain about the bathroom. It was terrible , old and when we tried the shower water was leaking from the ceiling. you can`t take shower without getting your hair wet, because the showerhead is fixed in the ceiling.
Hotel is ok for short stay for an unassuming traveler.

Room Tip: we stayed on the 5th floor close to the elevators , was noisy

Just spent three nights at this hotel, very friendly staff, food in restaurant was good, breakfast a bit basic. Beds very comfortable, good room size. I found it okay. If you like bartering in the markets you'll be fine. Don't wander off the beaten track as can be a bit scary, we went to find the tanneries you need a strong stomach!!!

spent too nights here recently. Excellent, confortable bed and very efficient AC and peaceful room, despite being underneath the bar, meant that we had an excellent and refreshing nights sleep.

However, the problem with the hotel was its cleanliness - I have never seen such a badly cleaned room with large bits of dust and crumbs everywhere! We viewed two rooms in the hotel that were exactly the same.

More of a city break than a summer holiday. Yes breakfast was the same everyday but the waiter was friendly and attentive. Great place for young people with nightlife and trendy bars not for the older couple.

My partner and I, stayed at this hotel in september 2011, before moving on to Essaouira. On arrival about 6pm , the guy on the desk acted as though he could'nt be bothered, was half asleep. Not a good start for our 3rd time in Marrakesh.
The lift to our room was tiny and smelly. The room basic , smelled musky, we opened curtains to our balcony to let in air, it stayed open all the time of our stay [only 3 nights thank god]
1 plus, the towels were actually white and clean!!
Breakfast [don't bother] the lift was broken, so we had to walk up stairs, not good as I have a bad hip. There was only 1 other couple having breakfast at the time, although all tables were laid out and the hotel was full. Soon found out why! An old man 80ish did his best to provide for us even though there were younger staff hanging around, doing nothing. I asked for more orange juice, which he willing provided, He was very attentive, I felt sorry for him working at that age, whilst others lazed about, so I tipped him a few dirhams [30] Hope he got himself a treat, he deserved it.
On the first day,after shopping, tired and thirsty, went to the hotel bar, ground floor and got told we could'nt have a drink [closed] locals in having a drink and it was 2.45pm. Closed at 3pm.
We were told to go to the roof top bar, closed as well. Was'nt a happy bunny.Nearly had a row with staff, but gave up and went to our room for drinks [bought from shop nearby].
We did'nt eat at the hotel again, but there are good cheap cafe/bistro's within yards nearby.
The roof top bar and veranda is ok at night , good veiws, cheap drinks, music and full of locals. The bar toilets are something to be desired {YUK] don't GO there, use your room loo instead.
I am not new to Marrakesh, so know what to expect, but for a 3 star hotel it's diabolical.
NEVER again.

Room Tip: No tips, but it's ok for those on a tight budget, just don't expect the Ritz

For the price I suppose I feel a little bad rating it as poor, but 3 stars it isn't. The hotel is old and dated in a bad way. Even down to the rugs, linen, curtains, towels. They are all faded and look several decades old. Some of the rooms (we stayed in 2 different rooms) are in a state of disrepair (holes in the walls, floor, ceiling, doors broken, plumbing dodgy. How they justified buying brand new flat screen tvs for every room and not buying new sheets is beyond me. The air con is very noisy and the balcony door doesn't close.

That said it is cheap (even includes breakfast), safe and clean. I have paid more and stayed in worse. The breakfast was plain but safe. The location was fairly convenient. It is ideal for a short stop off for a night or if you are backpacking on a budget. Otherwise pay a bit more for somewhere nicer.

Room Tip: The penultimate floor I would imagine is quieter. The top floor is away from the noisy street but th...
