“Romantic and peaceful holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

I can't rate this hotel more highly. From the moment we set foot in there, we were treated with such warmth and hospitality. The staff are wonderful, especially Fatimah. It is in a brilliant location because it is away from the direct hustle and bustle of the Jamaa square, yet only a 10 minute walk away from it all! Staying in the old city is also a really unique experience that I would recommend. We stayed in room 202 which is a suite. It was gorgeous. Not good for people who don't like steps as there are 3 steps leading up to the bed. Everyday there were fresh rose petals sprinkled on our bed and around the room. Totally gorgeous.

A slight smell of drains came from the bathroom in the late afternoon but this was completely understandable - it was 46 degrees when we went!

This is also one of the only hotels/riads that has an outdoor pool (as opposed to a plunge pool that is shaded). The pool has a handy sitting area around the shallow end so you can sit happily in the water to your hearts content.

Only thing I would say is that it took quite a long time to get our food when sitting around the pool. For example between 30 - 60 minutes. Actually, if you take this into consideration and order in good time, it is no problem at all. Just bare this in mind.

We attended the Moroccan evening which was fun - great food, music and a belly dancer.

There is a spa on site that does not charge through the roof. I went twice because of this fact.

We happened to pop to Essaouira for a few nights and when we returned we had a day to spend back in Marrakech. The manager went over and above to help us out. Even though we had not paid to go back, they offered us a room for the day at no extra cost and let us use the facilities as if we were guests again. Honestly it was fabulous and I would highly recommend it.

Room Tip: We loved our suite, room 202

Quite possibly the best hotel I have ever stayed in. All the wonderful qualities of this hotel have already been posted so there is little to add. The walk to and from the sights of Marrakech can seem very long in 46 degree heat but you are soon revived by a dip in the pool and a cup of mint tea. The hotel is also well set for making a winter stay memorable. If you are looking for a hotel in Marrakech, look no further.

An oasis of away from the craziness of Marrakech. Beautiful courtyard with fountain, great pool - larger than most Riads IT facilities and lovely comfortable relaxing sofa areas Room was delightful and large and retaining all the traditional features that you would expect from a classic Moroccan Riad, while containing all modern comforts including great bathrooms, wonderful beds and air conditioning.
Situated centrally in the Kasbah, close to the Royal Palace and within easy walking distance of all the main sites, its in a lovely neighbourhood but within walking distance of Jma. The breakfasts were lovely and the staff delightful so eager to please. The one dinner i had from restaurant was one of the best meals I had in Marrakech. Will definitey go back!

Room Tip: We stayed in room 303 and it was just lovely with lots of windows and very very quiet.

What can I say about this hotel that hasn't already been said? The Staff are wonderful, charming and helpful. The rooms are beautiful and the food superb.To have a lovely pool and on-site hamman is the icing on the cake. It's a haven of tranquility away from the non-stop activity of the medina and we loved every minute.In fact we are planning our next visit. You must stay here!

Room Tip: Any room is a good one!

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!
