Almas Hotel3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Great location (close to Jardin Majorelle, the Medina and not far from the airport), nice restaurants around, you avoid the hassle from the medina and can take a taxi or a bus from there. There is a bus stop just behind the hotel taking you to Jemaa El Fna for 4 MAD, much less than what you would have paid for a taxi ride. All in all, we were very satisfied considering other experiences of riads in the medina which were in dark streets without car access to carry the luggage easier. The breakfast is nice but a bit minimal. UK and US people used to salty food for breakfast might find it a bit too sweet. I would definitely book this hotel again if returning to Marrakesh.
We needed one night and two rooms in Marrakech before catching an early morning flight and Almas did the job well. Price was right, rooms were clean, staff very accomodating. One room was facing front, the other back; the latter are better; much quieter and most/all on that side seem to have a small balcony. Lots of cheap and interesting cafes in the area. When we arrived at the airport we discovered we'd left something very important in the room. We called the hotel, they found it, and sent it back to the airport with the same taxi driver we had on the way out. They were all very helpful.
This cozy hotel is located in the new area of Marrakesh, the Gueliz area. You can find all kinds of shops and restaurants nearby and it's pretty close to the medina, 5 min by car exactly. The staff was very friendly and they helped us with every request we had (more clean towels, etc.). We really enjoyed the rooftop deck with the pool. Comfortable beds and a nice atmosphere.
Morocco is known for its hospitality to the tourists. We arrived at the hotel and were given a warm welcome. The location of the hotel is very central. Next only to the famous Guilez square, it is well connected to all parts of Marrakech. So movement is never a problem. The rooms were cozy and comfortable. Clean. The staff were always ready to help. Food in the restaurant was ok, as there were not many options. However, if you are a vegetarian, you will struggle for sure. I was on the second floor, but it had the noise from the street. I do not know why, but each morning I would hear some strange noise as if two people are quarrelling. That was a bit of disturbance. Overall, it is a very good hotel, worth recommending.
I really enjoyed the excellent service of the friendly staff at this hotel. The hotel has the right size to offer facilities I enjoy, without being so large you have to walk miles inside the place. This includes a nice rooftop deck with a pool and a reception/conference room. An oasis in a hectic city. I had a room facing the rear (these are quiet and have a balcony) - very nice. Front facing rooms have no balcony and may experience some traffic noise. For a person in good healt, the walk to the Medina is about 20 minutes. The only minor negative, is that the carpet in my room was a bit tatty, and should be replaced - but not significant enough to loose the best score in my view.
We stayed for 5 nights in a triple room. The hotel is clean and the rooms large and very comfortable. Breakfast was a good buffet.with a selection of continental and local choices. Special mention must go to the chef, we stayed on half board and often were the only ones in the restaurant in the evening, he made up for this with his service, offering to prepare special dishes for us, the food he prepared was excellent. The rooftop pool is clean and offfers great views of the city. The location of the hotel is in Guiliz, 3 mins from a shopping centre and restaurants and only a 5 min 20dr cab ride to the medina. It is only a 20min walk to the Jardin Majorelle which is well worth visiting. As three females we felt very safe in the hotel and surrounding area and thoroughly enjoyed our visit.
WE spent our last night here. We had Suite 402 which was beautiful inside. The beds and linen were fantastic.. Nice soft pillows which seems hard to come by in Morocco. We thought the breakfast was fine, not sure about the ham though. The staff were so helpful, and even got us some bananas which weren't on the set up, but went so well with their pancakes and honey. The roof top pool was a lovely addition, my only complaint was there seemed to be a strange sulphur smell up there which was off-putting . Also can you sort the speakers out up there as they crackled when the music was playing. But I loved the music, and Im just being pocky about the sound quality as I am a Music Producer. Overall it was a greta stay, with fantastic staff. Highly recommend this hotel.
It is in the new part of town called Gueliz. It is where the newer, designer shops and restaurants are located. No snake charmers or monkeys here. The hotel is clean and modern with huge comfy beds. They offer a nice complementary breakfast in the morning. Sarah at the front desk was very helpful.
First time to morocco ,made to feel very welcome by all hotel staff,clean and spacious room,booked a tour through the reception who contacted the tour group to update us on pick up times which went very well,based in the centre of the city which is very easy to travel around,local people very friendly felt safe at all times would recommend,we will be returning early next year.be carful of taxis at the airport and walk further down towards departures instead of getting ripped off at arrivals.
Visited Marrakech for 3 days after few stressful month. Stayed at Almas for the length of the holiday. I felt compelled to leave a review after a good experience. The hotel was great. The staff was very helpful. Location is very good. The cleaners were awesome, felt bad for not leaving a tip for them.
