Simple but great room

European style room - no frills but clean, comfortable bed and bathroom - so if you don't need anything fancy and your room is "just a place to sleep," it's great. Also, hotel does not have elevator so being on the fourth floor means walking up. Would definitely stay here again!

Good location, clean and cheap, though overpriced for what it is, at least when I stayed. No elevators.

Does what it says on the tin.

It's in a great location, just outside the subway on 103rd st. So it take about 10-15 mins to get in to soho or somewhere central. The room was clean but the amenties were basic. The bathroom was small. It is a good hotel and I would recommend it based on the value price and great location. But I would make you aware not to expect much more than a private style hostel. Our room was small and had just what was needed. The main problem was that the pipes in the building were very noisy. So when the rooms near us took a shower we could hear the water pipes really loudly. Was only a problem when they had a shower at 6am one morning. Other than that it did the job.

Go to Freemans for Dinner. And have the artichoke dip (It's amazing!!!!). It's on Freeman's alley, hidden away. No signage. You'll only find it by the fairy lights outside. It's a hidden gem.

deluxe-my foot

I booked a deluxe room at the Marrakech for my wife and I. Nothing deluxe about room 205 it was 8ft x 10ft dark with an old dirty carpet. The bed was pushed against a wall, no bedside table or light, no storage space for clothes other than 4 hangers. Loose floorboards and certainly no sound insulation, you could hear every sound the neighbours made. A tiny window had an aircon unit in the lower part which was home to some pigeons and an outer brick wall. The bathroom was about 4ft square with the toilet tight against a wall.

Horrible, better off in the street !

This place is a dump. The lobby is up a steep flight of stairs, the staff were not helpful and the room was grossly over-heated with no temp control possible.

Good quality for a good price

Hotels in New York City are usually crazy expensive. For travellers who like it clean but don't need much luxury the Hotel Marakech is a good choice. The room prices are affordable, the staff is friendly, the rooms are clean and the hotel is close to a subway station.

THEY BROKE MY LUGGAGE!!!

I haven't met for a long time such rude people, especially the manager!!! They don't have an elevator, the guy that was carrying my luggage broke it and didn't want to admit it!! So is the manager!! The room was so small that I could hardly put my luggage inside. Cute TV but nor working, what is the point of having it. The same with the phone!! It didn't even has a connection to the receiver, imagine that! NO ELEVATOR!!! SUPER EXPENSIVE for this standard!!!
