“Charming and Peaceful Riad”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

Les Borjs de la Kasbah is an oasis of calm amid the hustle and bustle of Marrakech. Located near the edge of the medina it is easily accessible by car, but close enough to be within walking distance of the medina's main sights.

We had a lovely, comfortable room overlooking the courtyard. I spent several hours relaxing by the pool, which was well attended by the snack bar staff. While we did not eat dinner at the riad, but breakfast was excellent.

The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful.

We could not fault this Riad, from the moment we arrived we were looked after. Upon our arrival at 20.30 we were given tea and Moroccan cookies, we didn't want to venture the streets at this time to eat, the staff suggested we share a dish as the cookies had filled us, they served us in the comfortable lounge, the food was delicious and then showed us our room.
This hotel has been expertly designed, the rooms had everything you need in a bedroom, good lighting, ample storage space and the bathroom had light coming though the ceiling roof.
We found that after wondering the crazy city of Marrakech this was a perfect retreat, the swimming pool was also very welcoming after a morning of hustle and bustle.
The breakfast was excellent, lots of choice and nothing was too much trouble for the staff serving. Every member of staff had a smile and was willing to help at all times, if returning to Marrakech I certainly would return here.

the very best customer service is always so unobtrusive that it is almost imperceptible. so it is with this most wonderful of Riad's.

The hotel itself is wonderful, relaxing, great rooms, both public and private, really wonderful food and a stunning Haman, but it is the quality and care of the staff that marks this out as a world class hotel.

Everybody works together to deliver really exceptional customer service, everyone always has a smile on their face and after the bustle and noise of Marrakech it truly is an oasis of calm.

i have stayed in many of the Worlds very best hotels, but none of them have better service than this one.

if you going to Marrakech, do not book anywhere else stay here!

My husband and I spent a wonderful 9 nights in Les Borjs. It makes you feel as if you were visiting friend's house in Marrakech. Location is great and safe. The place is designed and maintained with a lot of care. Comfortable beds in clean rooms add on the interesting, traditional style architecture. Staff are there for you and you experience Moroccan hospitality first hand. Ask for anything you need help with i.e. transfers, excursions prices.....
It allows you to step in and out of the 21st century at will.

Les Borjs de la Kasbah is a great place to return to after a busy day sightseeing in the craziness that is Marrakech! Our room was clean and an adequate size. There was a table and chairs just outside the door to relax in. The riad and rooms have some lovely architectural details that remind you that you are in Morocco (unlike some nondescript hotel rooms). Like most riads in Morocco, it has lovely courtyards. The pool was a great way to escape the hot Moroccan sun and seemed clean. The breakfasts were satisfying and we also had dinner one night at the hotel and it was quite good. Moreover, the staff were all friendly and professional.

The riad is about a twenty minute walk from Jemaa el fna square and all the attractions and restaurants that we wanted to go to. We never had to use a taxi while there so its location is convenient if you are okay with short walks.

We did have some slight issues with parking our rental car. At first, someone on the street tried to convince us that we could not drive down the street the riad was on (not true) but we continued. The area the riad recommended was full but we found another place close to the hotel. It is a bit of a challenge driving and parking on the narrow streets but worth it to stay within the walled city.

I would definitely recommend staying here while in Marrakech.

This small, personal hotel offers every possibility for a perfect experience in Marrakech: cooking classes, spa treatments, restaurant and extremely helpful and friendly staff. The Riad is truly an oasis in the medina. With welcoming areas to sit, read and relax, the hotel is a great contrast to the rest of Marrakech. The staff of the hotel were exceptionally kind and helpful. I have no hesitations about recommending Le Borjs de la Kasbah.

Stayed at Les Borjs de la Kasbah in April 2013. It is an oasis of peace and quiet away from the hustle and bustle of Marrakech. Beautiful courtyard with fountain, library, IT facilities and lovely comfortable sofa area which is great for relaxing with a good book after a hectic day sight seeing. Room was delightful - large with a seating area , TV and a huge well appointed bathroom. Also had a heater which made the room comfortable on chilly evenings. Buffet breakfast in the atrium was delightful - lots of choice and freshly cooked eggs and pancakes. We ate in the restaurant each evening - traditional Moroccan cuisine or Moroccan with a French twist -all delicious and good value. Had a excellent hamman and a massage in the spa. Staff were really friendly and couldn't do enough for us. Les Borjs is an easy 15-20 minute walk from the main square. Definitely a great place to stay.
