“At 1st glance seems to be a nice hotel but do not dig too deep”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2013

Personally if you are in Marrakech you should try to find a traditional Ryad in the city centre but not this kind of "tourist" international hotel in fact....

If you really want a top class hotel this is not for you choose rather the Plaza next door which is real 4 star hotel....

Mogador opera hotel breakfast is really poor, building is only nice at the pool or in the lobby but not really in the rooms....if you check the "finitions" on walls and plumbing you will be very disappointed....TV is no flat screen and there is mist on the screen for all channels....

Towels are clean and numerous, room is clean but if you dig into details this is NO 3 star hotel....I did not eat there and went to Djemaa el Fnaa square where it is touristic but also typical...check tables were moroccan eat and you will not be disappointed, try the snails in pepper soup too....

Room Tip: I had room 105 spacious but not the best I think although I did not see the other rooms.....Would no...

The room was good. The pool was nice but often the loungers were full. We didnt eat in the hotel. The customer service from start to finish was awful. The girl on reception was rude. The pool boy ignored everyone. At one point a lady was moving her lounger and her things nearly tipped into the pool. He didnt move an inch to help. It was 40 degrees and there was no drinks on offer. I had to ask at reception for a coke. I was sent into the restaurant. I had to sit and wait for someone to come out. It wasnt service with a smile. I was given and can and straw.
Hotel is a long walk to the square but very close to Macdonalds and the train station.

We stayed at this property as part of our 5 night tour so it wasn't our choice. The room was fine. Just your basic hotel room and nothing special. Our toilet was dripping when we arrived and no one ever came to fix it.

The outside pool was nice to cool off in after the hot days in the city. We called down to ask about towels for the pool and were told they were out at the pool area but they weren't and we had to make two trips in to finally get someone to find them for us.

Dinner in the hotel was awful. It was served buffet style and everything was over cooked and cold. Our second night we didn't stay at the hotel for dinner - but went out to find a restaurant instead.

The front desk staff was not helpful - in particular Mlle Karima. She seemed annoyed to be asked questions and when we asked for a restaurant suggestion she wouldn't tell us anything. Likewise the staff in the dining room were also unfriendly and basically ignored us.

The hotel was fine for our purposes - a little far away from the main square but we did enjoy a horse and carriage ride back from the square the evening we went there.

We booked this hotel due to its location next to Marrakech train station. It is handily located for this but it is quite a trek 2 get to the medina. This is an average hotel which claims to be something better than it is. The customer service was appalling in every way. The receptionist was rude, the pool aid was reluctant to get towels & the breakfast staff were lazy. The breakfast was the worst we had in Morocco (& we stayed in some budget hotels). It is a buffet style breakfast but everything was stale, the bread, the cereal & the pastries. The juice was just squash & the jugs of hot water for tea had obviously been sat there from the beginning of service as they were no longer hot. There were plenty of staff to assist at breakfast, although none of them could be bothered 2 help. The room was ok, large & nicely decorated & had a shower & bath. Although the bath had no plug & the shower went from freezing to burning in seconds. The pool is also depressing as it is small & overlooked, boxed in by the walls of the hotel. Overall, this place was adequate for a night but it's nothing special & I would not want to pay full price or spend more than a couple of nights here.

We stayed here two nights. It's located right next to the train station and in front of a beautiful theatre. Service is OK, rooms are nice and fresh. The restaurant is terrible (at least for the breakfast buffet). But maybe it encourages you to have breakfast outside the hotel and get to know real Moroccan food!

I was hesitant in rating this Hotel because its neither terribly good nor terribly poor. Average location (bit far from the centre, if one is not into walking taxis must be taken almost everywhere), a good 30 minutes to the Djemaa el Fnaa, Spa is not bad, rooms are ok, beautiful chandelier hanging on the entrance lobby. Breakfast was very poor but for less than 5 euros one can go to the cafe just outside the Hotel and have a quite good meal. Would probably stay again.
Rooms are ok sizewise, have to bang the door for it to close. staff very nice and friendly at Reception and Spa. Stayed for 4 nights.

Room Tip: try to get a room facing the pool. quieter at night, better sleep.

Situated near the train station (walking distance) and the airport, it was my last hotel of a 10-day trip in Morrocco. It was the perfect hotel for relax and unwind away from the busy streets of Marrakech. So for those who want "quick getaway" hotel for a good value , this is it. Otherwise, the location is rather far from all that's "happenings" in Marrakech.
