Les Jardins De La Koutoubia5.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Just on the outside of the Médina is this gem of a hotel. Once you enter, you enter a haven of peace, quiet, beautifully decorated it is the place to be. In the basement of the hotel is the Karita spa which just adds to your tranquility. Rooms are a little outdated but still very nice.
We stayed at Les Jardins de la Koutoubia for a week in February. The hotel is comfortably furnished and decorated in traditional Moroccan style but it has all the facilities which one expects from a modern hotel e.g. free WiFi throughout. The location is very convenient with all the attractions of central Marrakech within walking distance. The hotel encloses a large sheltered courtyard containing the main, comfortably heated, swimming pool. The pool is clean and pleasant with plenty of sunbeds. There is another pool on the roof terrace and a third in the SPA. Rooms either face the courtyard or, as our did, the street. However the street is quiet at night. We were upgraded to a mini-suite which had excellent facilities with both shower and bath. It was warm, comfortable and very clean. We needed to use the heating as the weather was cold. The hotel has three restaurants and we ate in them all. The main, Moroccan, restaurant serves breakfast and dinner. The breakfast buffet has plenty of fresh and dried fruits, cereals and delicious breads and pastries. Egg dishes are cooked to order and are good. Dinner is mainly tagines and kebabs. It's not always clear whether your tagine will contain vegetables, couscous or just the meat - so ask before you order. The French restaurant, Relais de Paris has has an excellent menu and delicious food and is very well run. Absolutely the best value for money. There is also an Indian restaurant on the roof terrace; its menu and the food are fairly standard. The bar is pleasant and serves alcohol (not always available in Morocco). The hotel staff are efficient and friendly and take a genuine interest in their guests. We had an enjoyable stay and I have no hesitation in recommending Les Jardins de la Koutoubia.
Situated in the heart of the old Medina, Les Jardins de la Koutoubia is an enchanted lovely hotel. We were warmly received with green tea and deserts. My room was overlooking the pool and was nicely decorated with petals of roses. It was very nice, very clean and comfortable. It had a hair dryer, an iron , slippers, nice toiletries, and free wifi. The hotel has a spa that you need to book in advance. Breakfast has a good selection of options and the “regheefa” and he “crep” were freshly baked upon request and tasted like heaven.

The hotel is very good, well centered and beautiful. Has three restaurants (Indian, international and Moroccan). The Moroccan restaurant has almost no vegetarian food (that is why the 4 points review) For family or love this place is worth every penny.
If you are on your way to or from El Fna and you are nearby the hotel Les Jardins de La Koutoubia, don't miss to visit their famous piano bar. To sit down there having a drink and listening to the piano player/singer brings you back to old times when people like Orson Wells and the like frequented Marrakech. All you are waiting for is Hercule Poirot coming in to take his afternoon tea or night drink... Service is very nice as well as the whole atmosphere of relaxing on the search of the lost time. This place is good for loading up for the drums of El Fna, and it is as good for relaxing after an exhausting evening in the medina of Marrakesh. Highly recommended. We will be there as often as we can when being in Marrakech.
My husband and I spent 6 nights at this hotel. My overall impression: They can do better for a 5-star hotel. Check-in: Fast, served tea and snacks. Upgraded to a mini suit (thank you!). Room: Moroccan themed, which was wonderful. However, it seemed old and not very clean. For example, the shower bidet was spotted and not very clean. The bathtub had an old dried spot. The rokm didn't have this overall "clean and hygienic" impression that normal 5-star hotels had when you first entered. They had a huge closet, towels, bathrobes, and other bathroom supplies were avilable. - No tea/coffee corner. Water bottles not supplied. - Fruits upon arrival in room. - No iron in room Laundry: Fast (given at night and received in morning). Clean and smelled good. Spa: Good experience, clean. I had a whole body massage. My only bad experience is that the masseuse didn't smell nice especially when massaging my head and face. Not too expensive either, around 600 MAD. Breakfast: Awful. Limited options for a five star hotel! Same dishes every single day. A small table for cheese products and meat, a table for cereals, veggies and yogurt, break and croissants, and eggs/bacon/steamed veggies/sausages/meat. And a lady who does omelette. It's a very tiny section. Pool area: Heated pool, but we didn't go for a swim. There's an area with a fireplace next to the pool that was cozy and great for chilling. There was also a closed room with a pool table and tv. Other comments: - Reception area was nice to be honest. It had a Moroccan theme. - Check out: We waited for a while until someone came to get our bags. They did provide us with a taxi. - Proximity to other areas: It was next to the old souk and Djama'a Al Fena. More modern shops were 30 minutes walking distance. We did not use a taxi a lot, we walked all the time. N.B In the photo of the bed, kindly note that it was made for the purpose of taking a photo, not by an actual staff member. They would usually make it nicer :p
Beautiful riat very well located just next to the big souk. 3 wonderful swimming pools (one indoor/spa - however for this you have to pay extra which is a bit strange - it rained a few days and we wanted to relax at the pool, without taking a treatment every time (with treatment you get free access to the pool), but the cost for lying there are a flat fee of $20...). Staff is friendly, they even arranged a birthday cake for us so we were able to surprise our birthday family member! Breakfast is great.
I just say first impressions I was delighted when I stepped in. Bright velvety red sofas, nice decorations at the lobby and the reception staff was very polite. I was given a mint tea and a fresh towel but it is not hot here so I did not see the use of it. I stayed in a room overlooking the pool and with the sound of the local birds.. delightful. Nicely kept. The room is nice, plenty of space unfortunately as I checked my bed there was hair all over the linen. The cleanliness of the bedroom was also an issue that when I pointed out it was rectified. The staff here is lovely. The room needs some updating. Clear wear and tear is very visible. There are 2 pools one is heated and sun-loungers everywhere, lots of choices. The garden is fantastic and peaceful. I had lunch at the restaurant and it was very nice and good Price. I don’t agree it is a 5 star hotel. there is no complimentary water or coffee in the room. Very different from another hotel I stayed. On my last visit. Breakfast was good but nothing exceptional. Wi-fi works well. I recommend it in low season ... it must be extremely busy in the summer .
Great hotel, friendly service, perfect situation. Gardens are beautiful and rooms spacious and clean. If you want to stay close to the souks and enjoy continental luxury without paying a fortune, this is the hotel. If I ever travel to Marrakech again I'll go back to thai hotel
We were pleasantly surprised to find out that the hotel was in the heart of the Medina. A beautiful hotel with wonderful views of the Medina. The staff were friendly which made our stay all the better. We needed tour guides to take us around the Medina and the Atlas Mountains. The chief concierge, Abdessadeq Khanjari made sure we got the best tour guides, and we got the real Marrakesh experience. Definitely going back!
