“Quirky hotel in great location”
Reviewed May 9, 2010

We stayed in the Hitchcock room for one night on our way from Essaouria to the Atlas Mountains. The room was not huge but was perfect for us and had amazingly quirky decoration - quite modern but with a twist of Morocan. The owner (sorry can't remember his name) was very friendly and helpful.From the roof top terrace you can just hear the sounds of the main square. It was a bit difficult to find the Riad but on this occasion a genuine helpful Moroccan should us the way (for a tip but hey this is Morroco), despite my initial reservations.

We first looked at hotels in Tripadvisor. since we had a limited budget and based on great reviews, we chose hotel du tresor. the hotel did live up to the high standard in reviews. At first glance, the hotel doesn't have the grandness and decor of famous hotel chains, but it small, but very clean and stylish, if you want to experience moroccan culture, then you definitely should choose riads over hotel chains.

What i liked best of hotel du tresor is the location and its services. It is a two minute walk from the old city center and the most famous market, it is also walking distance to most of the sightseeing places. so when you are tired from sightseeing you could easily walk back to the hotel, which is really quiet and calm and get back all your energy. There is a very nice terrase and the staff will bring you refreshments if you ask for it. The service of the staff was the best ive ever experienced and i have stayed in over 40 hotels. The staff are sincere and very helpful. You feel very welcomed. When my boyfriend fell sick, they offered mint tea and did everything they can do to help. the only minor defect of the hotel was that in the morning at 8am when everyone is using the shower, there may be limited hot water. the rooms are not grand but are well-decorated. for the price i paid i think it was well worth the price. if you go there you must ask for their delicious mint tea!

I just left from Hotel du Tresor a few nights ago and I was amazed at the value of this hotel. The staff was very helpful and dependable...we could communicate in english (important since I dont speak french or arabic). The location is very close to the main square and all the action, but after long days around chaotic Marrakech, it was nice to come back to a quiet and comfortable place to relax. I will definitely stay here next time i'm in Marrakech.

I stayed here 7 nights with a friend in a very small but chic room, only 35 euros per night for both of us. It had 'bunk' beds and a small bathroom. Maybe this room is designed for kids, but we were comfortable here and very happy with the price. The hotel is generally pretty quiet and in an excellent location, just tucked away off of the main medina plaza. The service was impeccable. They respond promptly to requests and questions by email, and are very professional. We arranged airport transfers easily and inexpensively too.

One of the staff helped us find a nearby hammam and even invited us to come with him the next morning, where he showed us the basics of how to do a traditional hammam session. The ladies are very welcoming and friendly and serve up a great breakfast in the mornings on a beautiful terrace. If it rains, they have a salon just off the terrace.

The quality of service, price, location, and breakfast all merit my wholehearted reccomendation. It's a chic and quiet refuge in the otherwise crazy but wonderful red city.

Great looking hotel minutes away from Djemma-el Fna, but if you arrive after dark get them to meet you somewhere more central, the street leading to the Riad is a little scary at night if this is your first visit to Marrakesh. Lovely terrace for breakfast. Staff very nice, but could have been more helpful.

We stayed in Mariachia room on ground floor, it was occasionally a little bit noisy in the courtyard but the room was splendid- a proper boudoir with separating curtains and gorgeous art work. But no storage.

The shower in the bathroom took a few minutes to warm up but was hot enough after and the sink tap drips throughout the night- although the cleaners managed to rectify this each morning!

We were provided with fresh towels each morning, they tidied the bed and folded our clothes each morning!

Breakfast was boiled eggs, yoghurt, bread and pancakes with fresh orange juice and coffee. Perfect on the terrace in the morning sun.

Staff were particularly helpful and went out of their way to aid us.
