Hotel Imperial Plaza4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We have recently stayed at the Imperial Plaza hotel Marrakech .The hotel did not fulfil its agreement regarding “1 Massage and 1 Hot Tub/Sauna Session Each” they claimed that we were only entitled to 1 Hot Tub/Sauna Session Each & we’ll have to pay for the massage. I escalated the matter to the general manger who in turn told us that Groupon made a printing mistake & Groupon are to blame. We ended up having no treatment in protest. FYI the hotel is not worthy of 4 stars!!! & the restaurant had filthy tables & chairs; you get better furniture at car boot sales. We’ll never stay there ever again, miserable reception staff (smiling doesn’t cost a thing) , not trained adequately to deal with customers. Security personnel are stopping people from bringing in their own water, so they can sell you their own water, 4 times dearer than the shop next door (rip off!!!).Keep away you have been warned.
This hotel is advertised by Travel Republic and Open Travel services as a luxury 4* hotel and this is not the case. We had booked a 11 night stay and were severely disappointed. We thought that perhaps it being the end of Ramadan and hotel guest numbers being low that this was the cause of the issues that we faced and maybe this was the case but we had paid good money to have a relaxing holiday and this poor hotel and their unhelpfulness did spoil it for us. No working safes within the hotel. Poor room cleanliness, I wrote the word Hell on a table in the dust and after housekeeping had been it was still there! No locks on balcony doors. Original dining room not in use, they have allocated a dirty and dark room for meals Breakfast and evening meal are of poor quality. Food that should have been warm was cold and what should have been cold was warm which is a recipe for disaster in 40+ degree heat. The pool was not cleaned from the Friday to the Tuesday when we left The hotel boasts 2 bars, none were opened or the services on offer We did complain and try to resolve the issues and were offered alternative rooms and the chance to move to a sister hotel. Unfortunately the upgraded room or change of hotel did not solve the main issues such as working safes ,cleanliness, food hygiene and quality. Rooms had good air-conditioning which was welcomed. No bar service available although advertised
Even my stay it was short this time,i really appreciated my journey in Marrakech,because ,in one hand im a big fun of Marrakech and it's always a pleasure for me to be in the red city,in the other hand this time i was so lucky to choose this hotel, it's like a quiet and beautiful oasis in a big desert, big rooms,delisious foods and very helpful sttaf ,Thank's for all,and see you next time
The rooms very dirty and smoking smells everywhere, First thing the air conditioner is note working and it's very warm in Marrakech, No fridges in the room and water everywhere in bathroom , the employees don't give any help
I m a big fun of Marrakech,this wonderful city of colors ,foods,cultures and a lot of good and beautiful things,this time i was so lucky to choose Imperial Plaza hotel , very nice hotel in a quiet and save area, big rooms,delisious foods and good people,i enjoyed and i liked my stay, im travling now to Agadir,this country is amazing.
I would give them three stars, if it were not for the lack of a fridge, and the rather extortionate prices they charge within the hotel, as well as the very poor breakfast service they provide. The main plus about this hotel is that the housekeeping service is top star, the ladies who clean the place are very helpful, lovely and timely in making sure you have fresh towels, and your room is clean, Reception service was nice overall, except for the lady who can be a little bit off with you. Still overall the reception service were helpful whenever you need help. A couple of things I was not happy with were the very very poor breakfast service they provide. The food looked like the leftovers of last nights dishes they served. They were not refurbished dishes, and it was the same breakfast every day, On top of that disservice, there's an older guy who asks you every time what your room number is as soon as you enter the breakfast area, and he also will walk around you whilst your eating your breakfast which I found unbelievably irritating and made me feel conscious. It is not the younger boy, it is the older man who is a little disruptive and talks loudly around you when your having your breakfast. The dining area is okay, it was lovely because there's a couple of cats roaming around the place, which I'm not sure if your a cat lover like I am, but it was nice having them. I overall didn't feel as comfortable as I would have liked to, I feel as though if I was french-speaking I would have felt more integrating with the staff at the hotel. The air con was sufficiently working, in fact, a little too cool for me to be honest, and the size of the room were spacey and wide. However, I did feel that the place is a little outdated and shabby looking, the seats on the chairs on the rooftops were always dirty, the socket walls were hanging out at almost every location. I didn't enter the pool, but being a semi-germ freak, I didn't really want to. I do love the rooftop style pool they have, although I would have preferred an indoor pool instead because I don't want to always be hot in the sun when swimming. Its a real disadvantage to a hotel to only have outdoor pools. They also charged me 25dirham for a bottle of water, when the same bottle of water is 4-5 dirham in the supermarket which is 2 minutes away. The food provided is rather poor quality. They charge too much, and they always seem as though they want to profit off of everything they provide you with. There is also no fridge so you are forced to eat out all the time as you cannot keep anything in the room. This makes it very very unsuitable for families with children. They also charge for items to be put in a safe, also I'm not too sure why one would need a safe anyway, if the housekeepers and those entering the room are only authorised and would not steal anything. Also, WIFI was not very good, kept going on and off, making it unsafe for businesses. There is also not many guests staying here which makes it a little off putting if you look at it in the sense that there is not many people to interact with, I think for the total of 5 nights and 6 days I was there there was only 1 or 2 eating breakfast with us, and many of the rooms in the hotel are empty. However, the view outside my room was amazing and overlooking the beautiful pool and residents houses. It was very nice.
The city is very beautiful with its ancient monument... and the hotel give services every traveler require... The hotel has a view of the city with its rooftop pool which is beautiful at night...Fresh juice at breakfast, which is my favourite... and I love the canopy bed.
Hello, I've stayed 6 nights in this hotel and my impression is not great at all. Let me start from the booking process. On booking.com it is clearly written that the guests who stay for more than 3 nights will receive a hammam treatment and a massage for 30 minutes. I was really excited about it before my journey to Marrakesh. However, the hotel had available appointments after our trip ! It wasn't pleasant at all as there wasn't many guests in the hotel. Finally, I didn't receive any of these treatments and no one did anything to help me. The Second matter are the goods provided. On the website there are jacuzzi pictures but in reality there is no jacuzzi in the hotel. The air conditioning is not working properly and there was extremely hot in the room. Again, we were told the air conditioning IS WORKING so nothing else would be done about it. The last point is rude staff. There was only one gentleman who tried to help us whenever we needed but rest of the team was very angry and unhelpful. There are the examples. Once we arrive we wanted to exchange the money. The receptionist said that £1= 11.86 Dihram, we felt that it wasn't a great price so we went to our room. We discussed the matter and we decided to exchange £20 so we had enough money to go to the city centre. We went downstairs again, there was another gentleman who said it will be £1=12.30 Dihram. The previous person wanted to cheat us... The second situation was with excursions which are incredibly expensive in the hotel. We booked all the excursions with different company. The lady responsible for them in the hotel was very angry that we didn't book anything from them and she told us about it. It was really shocking. The good points about the hotel are: - there are many restaurants and shops around so it is easy to buy anything. -The roof top pool is really nice. I hope this review will help someone to make a right decision.
Thank you very much to all the staff of the hotel Imperial Plaza,I'm home now and i still remember every moment of my stay in Marrakech,you are very kind and helpful people you made my journey very interesting ,you have a nice hotel and a beautiful pool, i will be so glad to come back again.
Booking.com & Hotel Imperial Plaza & Spa, Marrakesh, Mo STAY AWAY , BAD BUSINESS , Be careful , SCAMMERS I booked at Hotel Imperial Plaza and Spa in Marrakesh, Morocco using booking.com and paid in full with my credit card to booking.com. When I arrived at the hotel, the hotel attendant did not have my name on their reservation list and did not know that I was coming. I produced the copy of the reservation. He read it and calculated double the money more which he asked me to pay on top of what I already paid to booking.com. He then said we do not care of what booking.com charged. We classify their charge as an introductory charge. I immediately felt that this was a scam between booking.com and the hotel. I refused to pay the extra charges and canceled. Immediately after I called booking.com and asked them to resolve this matter. They did not. I canceled the reservation with booking.com, the hotel did not care one way or the other because he did not have my name in the first place. I stayed at a different hotel. Three days after the cancellation booking.com provided my credit card information to the hotel who charged my credit card the full amount fraudulently. I asked booking.com about the fraudulent charge to my credit card. They asked me for a proof that my credit card was charged. In the mean time I am traveling through Morocco and my mail goes to my house in Canada. I had no way of sending them the credit card statement until I returned to Canada three months later. Booking.com did not bother to check for the charge on their records. When I returned to Canada, I scanned the credit card statement which showed the fraudulent charge by the hotel, and sent it to them. Booking.com accepted it as a true charge and told me over the phone to give the hotel a week to pay me my money back and if not, booking.com will pay me the money. Eight days went by and no money from the hotel, I emailed booking.com and asked for my money. I received a reply from booking.com from an unknown “Charles” with no full name or full address telling me to go to my credit card company. At this time booking.com has blocked my phone calls and each time I call, I get put on an indefinite hold! No one answers for more than an hour. In Canada there are only three telephone numbers for booking.com ( Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver) and no physical address to any. The only physical address they list is with a name for a CEO in Amsterdam, Holland and most likely it is fictitious. Interestingly enough the phone number for the CEO is the same for their customer service, If their CEO exists he/she should have called me to find out what happened rather than blocking my calls. I would like to take booking.com to court but it is very hard because of the lack of a physical address. I asked for an address but they didn’t provide one. Booking.com is a shadow company. You can not take them to court. My warning to everyone out there who consider giving booking.com your credit card number DO NOT. They are everywhere on the internet i.e. in hotel booking, airlines bookings or any other bookings. Be aware that once they have your credit card information, you have no way of holding them accountable. You can’t trust them. It has been since January 2017 and still have not gotten my money back. If there is someone who can help me and show me the way to take booking.com to court in Canada, I would really appreciate you contacting me. Furthermore if I did not have friends who helped me find another hotel, I would have been in real danger. Booking.com put my life in danger.
