First trip to the Hotel and glad I read about the drive up to the arrival area which does not create the best impression. That said, on entering the hotel you suddenly realise the quality of the reception area and the hotel itself. The staff at check in were very courteous and helpful and ensured my room which was a Junior suite was ready even though it was only mid morning. Also, on departure I was able to keep my room till 2.30pm without any cost. The buffet breakfast was excellent and was available in the downstairs restaurant or on the patio terrace. Once again staff service was very efficient and the range of hot and cold foods was vast with plenty of different drinks to choose from. Also, breakfast was available till 10.30am so no need to worry about early starts. We also eat in the hotel Indian restaurant which is situated on the roof of the hotel. Once again first class staff service with food to match and great views. Other facilities we used was the hotel spar which had a wide range of treatments at sensible prices along with the patio bar on an evening. The bar has a great feel to it with both background music and live entertainment on the weekend. The bar shuts at midnight but on the Saturday evening we found the waiters happy to serve drinks well past this time The location of the hotel is ideal for everything in the centre of Marrakech with the advantages of being able to get to other places in the city very easy I would have no problem in recommending the hotel for a business trip or a holiday getaway. I hope to get back to Marrakech very soon and this hotel will be my one and only choice when booking my trip.

This hotel is situated very close to Djemaa el Fina, yet not at all noisy. As soon as you step into the building, you enter the different world. It is very relaxing, and almost all staff are polite and friendly. There are so many public spaces where you can relax, and food here are very nice and beautifully presented. It is not cheap place, but if you would like to feel nice Moroccan hospitality, you can feel it here.

My husband and I popped in to the bar at Les Jardin de la Koutoubia. There is a great, relaxed atmosphere with efficient staff. The seating includes a colonial-style bar and further seating around the pool and beautifully lit garden area. The margarita cocktail was fabulous! It’s a welcome break from the frenzy of the souks.

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at Les Jardins de la Koutoubia. It was our first trip to Marrakech and the hotel location could not have been any better. Located just a short walk from Jemmaa el Fina (the main square), it was ideal for our needs during stay. The room was spacious and very clean. The hotel also offers 2 pools- one in the courtyard on the ground floor and one on the rooftop which is heated. Interesting layout in terms of the WC not being in the main part of the bathroom. Hands down this hotel delivered in terms of location, price and service versus the riad we booked for the end of our stay. Would highly recommend

A big hotel with a very interesting interior. Stayed in one of its suites, the room was very big with a separate living room. a big painting hanging on the wall. The service was excellent. Foods were amazing. Very close to the famous traditional night market, Jemmaa el Fina. From my room I could hear the noises from the market. One drawback is that the hotel way is very narrow, and it is surrounded by small vendors and shops. Another concern is safety, due very large crowds around the hotel, particularly at night. Overall experience is fine.

we stayed as a family of four (2 adult children) in 2 rooms interconnected by a balcony overlooking the pool & courtyard (which was nice). a very well featured hotel in the old moroccan style. three restaurants including the one of the roof - an excellent indian/ thai cuisine. the tagine restaurant was less appetising but good traditional food. the garden restaurant menu could do with an update. but had a nice ambience. the spa was very good with good therapists. my son even tried the hairdresser (rated OK). would recommend. nice cocktail bar with excellent staff

Well not much to add to my previous reviews of this hotel. The staff are excellent and very helpful. The hotel suffered a fire on the top terrace which has resulted in the Indian restaurant to be relocated on to the terrace which has the roof top pool. Beds are in short supply and space is abit tight. This only a temporary situation has work was nearly finished on the new restaurant. Special praise for Marie who runs the Indian restaurant, the food and service was first class. We look forward to seeing the new restaurant when completed.

The Hotel is absolutely beautiful, on entrance everything is magical, specially if this is your first arrival in Morocco, The Breakfast is really big, there is plenty to choose from. We visited this hotel twice during our stay in Morocco, I have to say during the second visit, they were not as attentive to us as like in the first one. They forgot to bring us our luggage until we reminded them a couple hours later. Still, I really recommend this hotel above any other in Marrakesh.

Excellent place to stay while visiting Marrakech. Perfectly situated just outside the souk and very close to the big square. Excellent service and very nice rooms and restaurants. Very nice pool area and a lovely roof top also with pool.

We had booked a taxis from airport via hotel for 200 Dirham – met just outside terminal – easy journey until entering the medina when traffic congestion hit home – arrived down a narrow street to find unassuming entrance to hotel Once through the doors the experience began – check-in formalities included form filling mint tea a sweet cake and back to the desk – some whispering followed and then it was announced that we had been upgraded from booked our mini suite to a junior one – then followed a trek from the old hotel through what appears to be a narrow street to the more modern extension to the room overlooking La Palais de Paris restaurant – thank you We stayed in room 77 – otherwise known as Les Palmiers - first floor junior suite - for 5 nights from 11 October 2017 – set in its own block with a room below – as a result it was generally quiet Being a junior suite it was spacious with a separate sitting area with flatscreen TV and what looked like a working fireplace – separated by a curtain is the spacious bedroom with very large firm but comfy bed opposite hanging and storage space with another flatscreen TV – separate toilet – very large bathroom with walk-in shower – good flow generally well controlled with decent toiletries and large soft towels – outside there is a terrace with deck chairs an awning and curtains for privacy The air conditioning worked well and could supplemented by a ceiling fan - the passworded wi-fi did the biz and passed the newspaper download test – there is a decent size fridge and an Nespresso coffee machine offering expresso sized portions – there was a turn down service on 3 of our 5 night stay which was appreciated Breakfast is served on the ground floor next to the pool – egg and pancake stations plus extensive hot and cold buffet – good coffee and juice served to the table – however during our stay service levels dipped and became erratic – fewer items were replenished – coffee arrived cold more than once There is a bar and alcohol is served throughout the building which is not the case in many places elsewhere – whilst it is reasonably well priced it can’t beat supermarket prices – there is a Carrefour within a 15 minute walk away just past the Cyber Park – the alcohol section is extensive and is on the lower floor – well worth the walk We had a guide arranged by the hotel – 300 dirham for about 2 hours’ worth of guiding and chat including stops at perfumery and carpet shop – good introduction to the Souks and the history of Marrakech and Morocco and its relationship to the wider political world and Islam – for first timers like us we got a very good introduction and enabled us to better understand the guide book Where we ate more often than not in the hotel – best food was provided by the lunches – good choices and tasty – dinner less so especially in Les Jardins de Bala – we did eat dinner outside the hotel – Kit Kif – did not disappoint with great views across to the Mosque – Portofino – safe European option – and the Red House which was a good experience The hotel is in a very central location within the Medina and within easy walking distance of Place Jemaa El Fna and the Souks but still directly accessible by car which many of the Riads are not Drivers in Marrakesh appear to follow a Highway Code that defies understanding and especially in the Souks you have to watch out for motorbikes and cyclists who are threading their way through the crowds at speed In the main the hotel was a good choice for what we wanted - the room was well appointed quiet and comfortable – the restaurants offered choice – service was generally ok if a little patchy at times – the prices for food and drink reflected the hotel status and local customs – it was very popular particularly with the French – thank you
