Nice hotel

Nice hotel with friendly staff. Cafe and skybar is nice. They do nice cafe latte and also show champions league football. The location is good and busy. You can walk to Medina in 30 mins. Breakfast is ok but not much. Staff at breakfast struggle to cope with their jobs.

Nice room, average hotel

Stayed here for 3 nights in March 2013. Booked a 'Moroccan Suite - Limited View'. The suite itself was lovely, spacious and well appointed but the limited view which I thought to mean a room on the back actually had frosted windows so no view at all. The rest of the hotel looks a lot more tired than the photos suggest, and the service was not that good. Breakfast was particularly disappointing - poor selection and most items had run out and were not being replenished. One morning asked for coffee and juice - the request was ignored and never received it. Location wise, it's OK. It's located in the Ville Nouvelle about a 30 minute walk from the square - if you're looking for somewhere in the Medina this isn't the place for you. Overall while we loved the suite, the rest of the hotel and service meant that we were a little disappointed and would stay somewhere else next time.

A good getaway venue.

Apart from some odour from "drains" which was attended to, all was well. We would certainly stay here again. The location was prime and the staff very helpful and courteous. We would definitely stay here again.

Better choice than Riads at Marrakech

The Renaissance represents decent value and comfort close to the restaurants, clubs and bars of Gueliz and a 2 km taxi ride away from the Medina and Jama El Fna shopping frenzy. It is a better choice than staying at Riads (refurbished houses inside the Medina). My experience at a Riad was not good: non-working heater, non-working safe, non-working internet, could not accept credit cards, and 1/2 km walk to the nearest spot where I could get a taxi.

No blown away

The hotel itself is very nice, and trendy and also happens to be one of the few places that serves alchohol and has a night club, so attracts young people. The Sky bar is grea and has heaters so if you do get chilly, the staff will happily put them on for you. The price of alcohol, I thought was expensive, so we just bought wine from the supermarket to have in our room. We had several issues, which the staff took a while to resolves, notably the lack of hot water for three days, which considering we were there for 4 days in november wasn't brilliant. We did get a room upgrade though, but that rooms heating / aircon didn't work, neither did the fridge, neither of which were fixed. We also must have been right over the night club as you could hear the music 3 stories up until 2am. Other than those niggly things very well located, 15 mins by bus to the airport costing 30 dhrs. Food was very well cooked, they have a hamman which we didn't use. Its good value for money and does what it says on the tin!

We had a great stay at La Renaissance.

The room was on the small side, but was stylish, modern and clean. The air-con coped with temperatures of over 40° c outside. It didn’t live up to the fridge like standards of coldness my partner had experienced in Dubai earlier this year, but I thought it was fine. The hotel is on a busy junction but we weren’t bothered by road or traffic noise at all. The rooftop pool is small but a great place to swim with views over the city and to the Atlas Mountains, again it was clear and towels were provided, although the number of sun beds is a bit limited. We didn’t eat in the hotel except for breakfast, which was again fine, selection of fruit, pastries, bread, and omelettes, served on the sixth floor restaurant or the terrace by the pool. This is a white room with white furniture, and windows over the terrace and pool. We never drunk enough to have a hangover (see section on the bar below to know why) but even so walking out of the dark lift into the blinding light was a rough awakening every morning. With a hangover it would be horrible, so if you are drinking the night before be warned! Other meals in the restaurant were a lot more expensive and having pushed the boat out on the hotel we tended to eat in the Medina, or sitting outside at small cafes in the nearby side roads, where the food was excellent and about a quarter of the price of the hotel. Many of the cafes and shops around shut at around 5 in the afternoon, and then don’t open again until 9, so wait till its later and cooler before heading out. The bar is expensive too, over £20 for an indifferent bottle of Moroccan wine, but its on level seven and has great views over the city. It also seems to be where a number of well to do young Moroccans hang out and drink, so great for people watching too. Staff were generally friendly, but not all had the same level of English and we did have the odd communication problem. Airport transfers were arranged efficiently if more expensively than a local taxi, however the promised early morning alarm call didn’t turn up, good job we had set an alarm. The hotel is well situated in the centre of the new town, right on a main shopping street and by a bus stop, which was a quicker and cheaper way of getting to the Medina than haggling for a taxi. We were told it was a 25 minute walk to the Medina, but that seems a bit optimistic. It was however so hot and the busses were so easy that we didn’t try. You can walk to the rail and ‘Suprabus’ coach station in about 15 minutes, and its 15 minutes by taxi to the airport. Finally, an unexpected delight is the lift, with a kind of Arabic disco theme: dark with mirrors and colour changing lights, truly fabulous!

Fantastic French speaking arabic cafes in the side roads by the hotel, no alcoholic drinks but great Morrocan Foods (tagines, cous cous, kebabs) for about a quarter of the price charged in the hotel. Dont be put of by a lack of tourists in these places.
