Stage II of mine and my boyfriends Moroccan adventure. After having stayed in a conventional non-friendly hotel in Casablanca we wanted something more Moroccan and smaller. We found this hotel absolutely delightful - even though it took 90mins of driving around Marrakesh and asking about 50 people where to find the place!! (tip - google map the place before setting off!)
We were greeted by the smell of orange blossom and incense and very friendly staff (even though they had written down my boyfriends name down wrong and weren't convinced at first we had made a booking!). The rooms have a cozy rustic feel to them, beds are very comfortable. All rooms overlook the typical Moroccan style inside garden, which is gorgeous but very noisy in the mornings. No noises are blocked out in the rooms, although they do have good blinds. The staff are exceptionally kind and helpful even though we must have been very annoying by always oversleeping breakfast time, but the staff were kind enough to keep our breakfast out until midday! The dining area is on the top of the house, decorated with beautiful flowers and with a cool swimming pool overlooking the city and Atlas mountains. The location was also very good for seeing old Marrakesh, it is within walking distance to the squares, souks and famous sites. The hotel is run by a Frenchman who gave us exceptionally good advice on places to visit and where to continue our trip.
Overall the experience was amazing and I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a picturesque and peaceful hotel with lovely staff!
