“Fabulous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2012

I loved this riad. It was 2 minutes to the square, clean, safe, the breakfast was wonderful and the staff was extremely helpful. I took a number of excursions and they kindly kept my luggage for days at a time while I was gone. If you need advice on meals, help setting up tours, a taxi to the airport, or a henna artist to come to your room, they will go above and beyond the call of duty to make it happen. I'll definitely be back.

Oh, the wifi is weak in the rooms but just open your window if you need to grab the signal from the lobby.

I stayed two nights in a single room located on the first floor in Hotel Belleville. The room was quiet and clean, although a bit small. The bathroom was clean too.

The price includes solid breakfast (first big plus): two different moroccan pancakes, fresh orange juice, honey, jam and coffee.

Hotel is very easy to find and is very well located just 2 minutes walk from Djemaa el-Fna square. On the other hand, it is far enought in order not to hear the musicians playing music at the square during the night.

The hotel provides very nice, polite and attentive service which is a second big plus. If you have any questions do not hesitate to consult a person at the reception desk.

Run by sweet and friendly family. Great value for the money, as riads and hotels are generally very expensive compared to the general living standard. Came twice, and both times happy. Its authentic and comfortable. No theatricals for the tourists. Just a plain and earnest riad with 6 rooms, and a lovely little roof terrace.

This hotel was in a great location, but due to being so central there was some noise from the street, especially when the next building is being renovated. The staff were extremely friendly and helped where possible and the rooms were good value for money, a couple on the small side, but to be expected in the middle of the Medina.

Brilliantly located, a few minutes walk from the main square, therefore also easy to find and safe to walk to later at night. Staff very helpful and cheerful, and always around. Only about 8 bedrooms, we always slept in the back or middle ones and these were quiet. Breakfast was quite typical of all the ones we had in Morocco, served on the roof terrace. We had one cold shower, but five hot ones to balance it out. Not luxurious, but clean, pleasant and practical and a bargain for the location. A double room was 350 dirham or 400 with air conditioning (inc breakfast) £25/28.

This hotel is situated only a minute or so away from Jemaa El-Fna, the central square. During the day, the street is quite busy, but at night it's a lot more quiet and we slept very well. The room was tiny, but there was a nice bed, a place to put clothes and bags, a window (looking onto the patio) and bathroom with sink, toilet and shower. Breakfast is served at the roof terrace and is excellent! Fresh, with a little variation from day to day. Little thing: hot water comes from sun-boilers and may not always be available. Value for money!

This riad was organised for us by a friend of a friend who we were meeting later in the week in Zagora to go trekking in the desert. He had worked with the people at Hotel Belleville for some years and felt this place was safe, in a good location with helpful staff and he was definitely right.

Our first impression was that it was a bit basic, but after staying elsewhere in Morocco AND at a more expensive riad in Marrakech later in the trip that we were hoping to be more upscale (but definitely wasn't and was not worth the money) we started to realise what a good deal Hotel Belleville was.

The decor is very traditional and the riad is kept very clean. You eat breakfast (the most generous breakfast we had from any of the hotels we stayed at while in Morocco) on a beautiful roof terrace withe plenty of lovely foliage. The managers were very helpful and you are about a 2 minute walk from the Djemma el Fna - the location is perfect.

Just a word on location. We found that most things in Marrkech (excluding the Nouvelle Ville which is further way) were very close to each other. From Hotel Belleville you can be through the main square and into the souqs in 5 minutes and then north of that near the Foundouks and the Moussaine in another 10. The trick is not getting lost, which is pretty much impossible, but inevitably you get spat out somewhere and you realise, with a bit of luch, you're actually pretty close to where you were intending to go in the first place.

We stayed in December and quickly learned that, while tiling is great for hot weather, it is freezing in cold weather. There isn't central heating but there is a space heater that takes the chill off plus plenty of blankets so we were very cosy. Plus the shower was fantastic - pretty strong and plenty of hot water.

All the other guests staying here were French. One of the staff members has fair English and the other has quite good English. We speak French so this wasn't a problem for us, but even if we didn't I think it wouldn't have been a problem.

This is not a plush riad, but we quickly learned that the more luxurious, exotic riads that we see in travel magazine and travel shows probably cost a fair bit.

The riad we stayed in on the last night was Dar Pangal, which we booked as it was rated number 1 for hotels under £50 but we were not impressed. The owner and manager were lovely but the courtyard was unkept and I felt the rooms really lacked atmosphere. Plus the location was not nearly as good.

We had thought about booking Dar Taliwint, which has great reviews on here but is probably about twice as expensive as Hotel Belleville. Our friend told us this was a good place too if it's in your budget.

  • Liked — Lovely decor, fantastic roof terrace, generous breakfast, great location, helpful staff
  • Disliked — The room was a bit cold in December but not a big deal as there were plenty of blankets.
