This is a beautiful hotel, created from a riad and several old houses which blend to make a luxury hotel with the rooms looking on to courtyards full of flowers, orange trees and fountains. All the rooms are different - our party of 8 ladies took the 4 twin bedded rooms, two being standard rooms and two deluxe. There really wasn't much difference in them- the deluxe rooms being a little bigger, but they were all furnished well, with easy chairs, comfortable beds, large wardrobes, with rugs, cushions and walls in soft earth colours.The bathrooms were very large, and had a large bath with shower, separate shower cubicle, and some had double sinks too. They were all spotlessly clean
The hotel staf fwas one of the best things about the hotel. All spoke perfect English, and nothing was too much trouble for them. They were obviously proud of their hotel, and genuinely seemed to enjoy their work, always smiling, and very helpful.
The hotel is within the walled Kasbah, but a 20 min walk from the main square. We never felt threatened when walking, and taxis were easy to find if you didn't fancy the trek. We also walked to the Saadian tombs, Badia and Bahia palaces, and the souk. The city is exciting , colourful and frenetic- it was a delight to return to the peace quiet and comfort of the Borjs. It also has a swimming pool, great to cool down in.
The breakfasts were excellent- great choice of fruits, cheese breads, and freshly squeezed orange juice which was wonderful and eggs cooked to order. We ate in twice in the evening, as there are no restaurants close- the only negative feature of the hotel.The food was good, not exceptional, but about the same price as the central restaurants
If I return to Marrakech I will definitely return to the Borjs- it is lovely!
