Don't listen to the miserable folk who pay for a cheap hotel and expect the Ritz! For the money this hotel is great. The rooms are clean, and cleaned daily with fresh towels. Breakfast is basic but nice, with delicious hot pastries and decent coffee from a machine. Staff were great in my opinion, friendly and helpful for example they printed out our return flight boarding passes for us at no cost and were happy to help. Security guard on the door makes you feel secure and was a very polite gentleman. The hotel is close to shops and places to eat. Yes there's a nearby McDonald's but why on earth would you go to Marrakesh and eat at McDonald's!! You are totally missing the point of going to such a vibrant and amazing city!! Traffic noise is to be expected, it's Marrakesh! It's crazy on the roads there! Enjoy the wonderful chaos! Or go to a boring place and eat English food like most unadventurous holidaymakers! A 30 minute pleasant walk to the souks in the centre of Marrakesh. Lots to see in the area. An unforgettable 4 days. Do book the Agdal if you are on a budget.
Good: - Again good value for price paid - good Breakfast with Amazing hot drinks machine (unlimited) I drank over 6 cups so didn't need for whole day - close to McDonald's etc big mall, lots of food places Bad: - AC didnt work so moved a few times had to fight for it! - a bit run down with very simple rooms - a bit noisy Would go again for good price, usually prefer in Medina but had to stay here due to children with me
Do NOT stay here. The staff are racist and rude. They will IGNORE you when you say “Good Morning” to them. There is NOT a language barrier- trust me. I am fluent in English, Arabic and French. During Breakfast, they will all huddle in a corner, laugh and mock you as they stand there in their pyjama and aprons believing they are kings and queens. We asked the female server for eggs. She stared at us blankly as we repeated ourselves in Arabic and French. Eggs are eggs. They pretend to not understand you so that they don’t serve you. The “dumb blonde” act isn’t a good look. She walked around for 20 minutes before coming back saying, “No one in the kitchen knows how to make any type of eggs. Hassan, the host, has left and he’s the only one who knows how”. I’m sorry but even a 7 year old knows how to crack an egg. This was at 9am at breakfast ends at 10am. Why is your staff “leaving” before breakfast is over???
Firstly, if you do stay here, DEFINITELY request a pool view room as the road is extremely noisy. The hotel lobby is very dark and poorly lit - gets very cold at night. Furniture and décor very dated and could do with a revamp. The pool is dirty, and although the cleaners fish the feathers out every morning, that's about as much work as gets done to it. The dust from around the pool is swept into the pool drains, and the water is FREEZING cold, despite the heat from the sun. The breakfast is awful, we booked a room that included breakfast, expecting a buffet style continental, but no. All you get is some hard bread, a bowl of butter shavings and slices of peeled cucumber. We were also attached at around 3am on new years eve right outside the hotel on the way back from a new year party - police and hotel staff / security did absolutely nothing. Despite claims, this hotel does not have a bar, does not do shisha and does not sell alcohol because it is 'too haram'. On 4th floor you could get no wifi in the rooms - you could just about get a connection in the main lobby! Area is pretty and close to a mcdonalds - not many traditional food places.Armani bar is good for shisha and pasta - 2 min walk from Agdal.
Ok so to excuse myself, it was a last minute booking and this was the best deal available. Positives: Clean bedding, towelling, regular room service, good location close to the Supra tours bus station if you fancy any visits Negatives (and I am trying to be as mild as possible) : A) Apart from the guy at reception, no one can speak English. And some get rather aggressive trying to explain their point in Arabic. B) the day I checked in the guy at reception undercharged me by a 100 dh or so. Then when I was in the nearby stationers he found me and said rather accusingly that I have underpaid. I didnt understand what he was saying because it was in broken English, until much later when it turned out he had applied the wrong Eur-Dh fx rate. Fab start!! C) Although I had reserved for 7 nights, as plans turned out I was likely to be away for 2 on a desert safari (that is a once in a lifetime experience). I requested cancellation for 2 nights but no go. D) Air conditioning: they have a weird system whereby the guest needs to inform the guy at reception that he needs the radiator turned on /off. He then directs one of his staff to trudge their way up. Weird as crap to have someone enter your room at 11pm before you turn off the lights Never before, never again... E) Breakfast: Orange juice, a slice of cake, bread with a selection of jam /butter, crepes, cucumber and tomato. Unique, for lack of a better description! Besides there is forever a dearth of clean cutlery and glasses with one girl helplessly running around catering to pressing demands. In summary, budget hotel for a one or 2 night stay. Not suited for couples or families.
My reservation was canceled without any reason I had to look for another hotel after serious hard voyage... until the next day breakfast not very interesting....Happy new year 2018. Marrakach was beautiful ness zwina
No frills hotel ok for a few days stay, breakfast seriously needs improving , best to go out for breakfast .wifi works best in reception and intermittently in rooms . Breakfast not the best , but good location nearby necessary amenities.
Stayed here for 7 night's, it was an ok place Pro's Clean bedding and towels every day Air con was good if not a little loud Room over looked the pool 15/20 mins walk from new town 10 minute bus ride or 30 minute walk to the medina Loads of nice restaurants nearby Cons Very old and dated Hot water was very intermittent Sunbeds by the pool were all cracked and old Breakfast was the same every day If your looking for some where clean to stay then I'd recommend it, you do get what you pay for but then its Marrakech
The hotel it self is quite old not very modern . Wifi was a big issue some rooms could not get it . Rooms were okay AC did not work in some rooms. Noise wasn't a issue . Staff need to be more friendly and more based around customer service not pushed towards asking for tips for general information. Pool was very small and very dirty needs to be cleaned daily or regular enough so you can go in it as it was very dirty. Breakfast was okay some staff could not be bothered to provide food which was on the breakfast menu. Overall average experience . I would not return here.
Had a great stay here.Yes some parts of the hotel are dated but clean bedding, air-con,hot water,towels,pool,fantastic breakfast and superb staff more than made up for it. Little boutique inside the hotel. WiFi is intermittent with a mind of its own. Close to local amenities and posh town is about 15 minutes walk. Definitely going back soon as we had an excellent time x
