We spent 3 nights at the Palais Sabban and what can I say?
Our room was tiny with an in-room shower and sink plus a cublicle toilet, which was very annoying as we were two women traveling together and we each wanted privacy. They at least split the double bed into two twins! Wish they had told us when we booked.
The biggest shame: the NASTIEST receptionist who first said that as two women we couldn't go out to the suq alone and needed a hotel provided guide (NOT SO!) and then at check-out straight out accused me of trying to duck out of a bill as I was attempting to pay it! If that's the welcoming person, she should be hid behind the scenes somewhere. Never again! We needed the French manager to straighten that out.
We tried to book a 'hammam', but were told the person who worked in that was ill. Just one person? Too bad.
Finally, finding it was a real challenge - a guide was needed which in Marrakech means another handout.
Wait staff was alright, food average.
The upside is that the public areas of the Palais are gorgeous and quiet. Wish they heated the 'pool', which is really 'a dip after a hike' pool.
