Stayed in this hotel for four nights in June. The hotel was fine for what we wanted. Room was comfortable and the hotel was spotless. The staff on reception were so helpful and friendly. On checkout from our first two nights I mentioned I didn't sleep well with the noise of the road as I am a light sleeper. They promised to upgrade us on our return a few days later as we were off to Essaouria for few days. On our return the moment we walked in the door they recalled their promise and upgraded us which was great. There are two pools but quite small. You will get some sun in one section of the courtyard if you want to sunbathe but the rest is shaded. The breakfast buffet was disappointing but after staying in another hotel, it seems to be the same. One thing we didn't realise was that alot of hotels dont serve alcohol. But there are two lovely bars/restaurants in the street parallel to the hotel- just around the corner. Food and wine suberb. The train station is five mins walk from the hotel. We thought it was a shopping centre until we walked in. Lots of food outlets and an amazing Italian restaurant upstairs which we discover ed on our last day! For those travelling, the bus station is just up from the train station. You can walk from the hotel to it no hassle with case on wheels. We did two nights at meriem hotel. . went to Essaouria for three nights on the comfort coach...then back to meriem hotel for the last two nights. Book your ticket in advance which was 100 dirhams and you pay 20 extra per piece of luggage. Regular coach was 70. We got this on return as the comfort coach just leaves Essaouria at five in the evening whereas the other bus is more regularly. Definitely recommend doing two destinations as seven nights in either place would be too much. Meriem hotel was a good base for marrakech. Spent about 30 dirhams for taxi into the centre. The hotel is also not far from the airport. On arrival I had a lot of hard work to do to negotiate the price. Wanted to charge us 150 but from someone elses review I knew you shouldn't pay more than 70.so I kept haggling until he said 70. On our return trip to the airport a fast one was pulled. The taxi said to pay whatever. So I said 50. When we got out of the taxi I only had 100. He took it and wouldn't give me change and insisted it was 100. Not that that is alot but next time I would make sure I have change. Overall enjoyable week and enjoyable stay in marrakech. Definitely think it is more of a cultural holiday. Happy holidays
