“An Oasis in the middle of the desert”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2013

Excelent service and amenities, the food is very good, and also the spa services. The location is not excellent but is not bad either, is kind of far from the main attractions however, that helps to keep it quiet and relaxing. I had a few problems with the bathroom, I hope they increase the maintenance there. The rest of the room was quite good.

Room Tip: My room was 107 and it had some problems with the bathroom and shower.

A big thank you to all the staff as we had a wonderful time and will return. A peaceful haven and would definitely recommend.
Everything was beautifully presented and everyone could not have been more helpful. Recommend a visit to the Atlas mountains. Long trip but amazing views.
Also visit restaurant Pepe Nero which is first class. A bit difficult to find but well worth it.
The horse and carriage ride is a must and great fun.

We had a wonderful few days at Les Borjs … This was our first time in Morocco and we were also experiencing a riad for the first time although I think this is technically a hotel. It was amazing how the noise of the city totally disappeared as we walked into Les Borjs de la Kasbah.

The courtyard was beautiful and a very relaxing place to spend time. Our room was spacious and well-furnished (although it was not as light as we might have hoped but this could of course be entirely due to the fact that it was on the ground floor). The swimming pool was a good size and a constant and lovely 25 degrees!

The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble for any of them.

The result of the project of merging more than one property to construct Les Borjs is of a very high standard and the effect is ‘seamless’.

Breakfast was a lovely experience with freshly cooked eggs cooked individually for us as well as Moroccan pancakes etc. The weather was amazing during our stay and when the roof above the restaurant was opened up it was lovely to see the clear blue sky above us while we ate our breakfast. The evening meals were also excellent.

Les Borjs is very well situated in the medina, close to the royal palace and is a relatively short distance to walk to the main square, Jemmaa El Fna, to the Koutoubia Mosque, the souks and everything else on offer in Marrakech.

From the moment we arrived we were made very welcome with mint tea, gorgeous pastries and a warm welcome. The room was large, well designed with it's own terrace overlooking the restaurant. One night we had dinner and enjoyed music and dancing at a Moroccan night. The food was delicious and the wine list has a good number of Moroccan reds. We enjoyed the hammam two days in row it was so good, the massages were sublime. The staff could not be more helpful and friendly, the place was immaculate. The neighbourhood was interesting close to the tombs and palaces and a 15 minute walk to the square.

Highly recommend this lovely hotel which is literally built into the walls of the medina and is within walking distance of the main square. It was lovely to return to the peace and tranquility after the hussle and bustle of the streets (we especially enjoyed relaxing in the 'Moroccan lounge') and the room was very comfortable and incredibly quiet. A little disappointed with the food and the service could have been a bit more attentive but not enough to spoil our stay.

Arriving here through the hustle and bustle of the casbah is an amazing experience,.the contrast is unbelievable. Norah on reception greeted us with a smile and proved to be helpful and informative all the time on our 6 day stay.our room was spacious and spotless,the whole place is very very clean.the reception rooms are comfortable and full of local character. the atmosphere is so peaceful and quite. Norah in the dining area is a real character with a real sense of humour ably assisted by Mohamed.We also enjoyed the hammam; ,had a body scrub and massage ,very relaxing.we really enjoyed our stay here and would definitely stay here again

Great Riad with excellent facilities. Pool and spa, nice room, very good service from all staff, particularly reception, nice breakfast, location towards the edge of Medina area but great to be close enough to the action without it being noisy. Very little to fault. Would stay there again which is always the best test. If you want the Moroccan / Marrakech experience in a small and friendly hotel without being in a large standard 'Western' hotel then this is the place to stay.

Room Tip: We were in a premium room - not sure what the other room types are like
