“absolutely recommendable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

We loved this place, we paid 190 dhms for double room with shared bathrooms, the price also includes a respectable breakfast. The rooms and bathroom were sparkling clean, at other places in Morocco we chose to sleep in our sleeping beds, but that wasn't necessary here. the showers have hot water all day and you can regulate the temperature perfectly, all the shower cubicles are very roomy. The rooms are very large, a double room has two double beds and still tons of space, and the sinks in every room are an added bonus. What was bit annoying is that you couldn't get the wifi in the rooms only in the (very pretty) courtyard, however with this thick stone walls typical for Moroccan buildings that is pretty much unavoidable, and hey it's still free wifi, right? All in all this was definitely the best value hotel we stayed in on our trip and to top it off the staff is super friendly and helpful!

Travelling with a group and the criteria were; authentic (ie should not be like home, no compounds) clean, easy access location, security (walk home from centre) and budget. This place derived on all criteria and was exceedingly good value for all of the group. Would def use again and perfect for a group of travellers who want to experience the real Marrakech.

Hotel Toulousain is very well located not so far from the square Djema el Fnaa, next to Plaza, very close to the airport Menara. Concerning to price, the hotel was very cheap. I didnt expect a lot although I was surprised. The room was not too small, with shower. the sheets were clean, shower as well. to go to the toilet, I had to go outside the room. the breakfast was composed by croissant, some yogurt, some bread with jam and oringe juice. The receptionists were friendly, especialy lady at the reception, she was all the time able to answer my questions and also gave me good advice.
The only disadvantage was not very hot water during the night and 3 euros to rent the heating, because in the room there is not. 3 euros is not too much, but in my opinion the heating should be free and automaticly in the room because its very cold during the night... and in my opinion hotel shouldnt charge anything for the heating.
I will definitely choose the same hotel for the next time and I recommend it.
Anyway

Room Tip: ask for the room with bathroom included anyway you risk to be in public shower

I have mixed feelings about this place. It was the only hotel we booked in advance during our trip. It might be cheap for Marrakech, but you really get what you pay for. The place is worn down but clean, some of the staff were really friendly others seemed disinterested, the showers are hot and work well and we enjoyed our breakfast. Too bad there is a lot of noise coming from a nightclub nearby, and depending on which side of the hotel you're at, this can be quite annoying because the heavy bass keeps going until 4am (even on a Tuesday). The pillows were really awful (a bag filled wit cheap foamy flakes) and the place really needs a fix up.. right now its rather stuffy and its definitely not the cosiest place. They keep it clean, but that's about it. I would pay a bit more for a better nights sleep next time.

perfectly located and realativly easy to find (most taxi drivers know it) clean and well maintained but pretty basic...breakfast is basic and better eaten early as it goes down hill the later in the morning you take it. reception staff very friendly. ..basic english spoken so as with most of the country a bit of french helps...cold at night in winter so be prepared...

Room Tip: upstairs rooms quieter

I stayed in this hotel when I visited Marrakech for the first time in November 2009 and what a lovely bag of memories I still carry. As every traveler, I was excited as well as anxious about the hotel in particular and Marrakech in general. All my wariness disappeared as soon as I set foot in Hotel Toulousain. I must say that the hotel and the city did not disappoint me, on the contrary I found them to be an oasis of peace and tranquility.
The rooms are around two square courtyards with orange trees. I stayed in a room on the 1st floor as well as on the ground floor, next to the breakfast kitchen. Waking up in the morning with the chants of birds, the meows of cats and laughters of fellow traveler taking their breakfast under the orange tree, is unforgettable.
If you are obsessed with luxury and comfort etc do not go to this hotel. But if you want to experience an authentic atmosphere with clean bed and delicious breakfast without being out of pocket, this is the place. Bon voyage!

I found the medina scene too overwhelming as a solo traveler who knew no french or arabic. I had some difficulties when I arrived in Marrakesh and the owner and staff at the Toulousian went above and beyond to help me. I will be forever grateful for a Moroccan man. The hotel is very affordable. The rooms were very simple but clean and comfortable. The breakfast was good. The hospitality was exceptional and unmatched by any accommodations I had in a 12 days of travelling in Morocco. It was easy to get around the city from this Gueliz location.
