Imperial Holiday Hotel
Ranked #485 of 500 Hotels in Marrakech
Reviewed April 20, 2013

Stayed at this hotel over Easter break it was rather dated breakfasts were good providing a range from pastries, eggs, pancakes, however you had to pay extra for good coffee. The evening meals where disappointing not very good quite bland in flavour. Staff were not very friendly and seemd to have a promlem with Brits, prefered the French. Rooms where clean though and there where no noises throught the night. Over all happy as hotel was far enough away from hustle and bustle of the city but not too far.

We have just returned from a week in Marrakech staying at the Imperial Holiday Hotel. We paid under £100 each for a week half board and have no complaints what so ever. Yes, it's a little tired, yes, it's a little cheesy - but it depends what is important to you. We want a safe place to leave our stuff, clean towels and sheets daily, great food and friendly helpful staff, we got that 'with knobs on' at the Imperial. I must redress two particular comments from one reviewer who said the food & staff were terrible. Firstly, the restaurant provided a vaired and excellent buffet every day of authentic Morrocan food. Secondly, the staff were so friendly and helpful, from the cleaner to the front of house and restaurant mangager, we felt welcomed and appriciated at all times. The location is great - right in between the Old Town and the beautiful Gardens Majorelle, and the view of the Atlas Mountais is wonderful from the roof terrace.

Stayed: February 2013, traveled as a couple

Very disappointed. We couldn't sleep due to the noise either outside the hotel or inside ( could hear a couple next door having sex because their bed headboard was knocking on the wall!!
Breakfast very poor and no Wifi as expected in the room.
No proper car park ( had to pay the street guard daily to guard the car), and had to pay for the safe in the room. Staff unprofessional. The only good thing about this hotel is its location (walking distance to the shops).

Room Tip: Choose a room facing their tiny pool if you want to sleep at night

This hotel is nicely located: it takes 30 minutes walk to the medina. Very nice rooftop. Rooms are ok. Very helpful and friendly staff. To behonoust; we do not undstand why there are reviews on this hotel that say the staff is not friendly or supportive. Could be a bit cleaner (windows, light swithes and tap in the bathroom seem never to be cleaned).

We booked this hotel through Groupon. And after reading the reviews we knew what to expect, But as we are not the type of person that hangs out in their hotel during holidays we didn't mind. Well, their incompetent and rude staff manage to make the whole stay a horrible experience even if you have little contact with them. From the check in to the check out its just a nightmare!
Avoid this place. Go somewhere else. It's not even a 4 stars and its not worth ruining any moment of your holiday wasting time with these people.
There is no reason why you should stay there! The location isnt that good, the premises arent pretty, food is bad... You wouldn't believe how rude they are and how poor poor poor their service is. I just still can't believe how bad it was!
AVOID!!!!

this hotel is not 4 star and we wouldnt recommend it. Rooms were clean but very 'tired'! bathrooms need major overhaul, shower not very good. Breakfast adequate but did not eat any other meals here. The noise at night from bar/ nightclub kept us awake till very late.
reception staff polite but not very friendly but the porter was very helpful. Staying here did not ruin our trip, but we think its over priced for what you get and if we return to Marrakech would book accommodation elsewhere.

We're two older ladies and weren't sure what to expect. We were treated with great respect by all the staff, who were helpful and friendly all the time. They couldn't do enough for us.. The room was very clean and we got to know the cleaning lady well . She was very thorough and we had clean towels every day.The food was quite varied and the waiters eager to make sure everything was satisfactory. We are well travelled and for the price we paid for our week, we can recommend this hotel. Excellent value for money. Kathy and Bridie. BEDFORD

Room Tip: Room overlooked pool yet was not noisy.
