The lobby is so charming! Overall it's a nice hotel; the rooms are good, with more than enough space for 3 people; breakfast is self served and they have a great variety of food. The location is not so good for walking but it's easy and not expensive to get a cab for just about everywhere.
An excellent hotel to not break the bank! Taxis ride to the medina is no more than 20 MAD and the wifi in the rooms is strong. Best breakfast served in all of Morocco from my experience and there is even a pool area! The lobby is also very beautiful and just a nice place to sit and relax. I would definitely stay here again.
Had stayed here for a few days several years ago (summer 2009) and was more than happy with it at the time. This visit was only for one night, arriving late from the airport and leaving early in the morning for the train, so didn't get a chance to sample breakfast. Location is obviously as good as it was previously (handy for the centre of the Ville Nouvelle, nice walk down to the Jemaa el-Fnaa (either down the main road or through the medina from Bab Doukkala which is a really nice stroll), close to the Jardin Marjorelle and the Carrefour supermarket). Load of cafes/bars in the side streets around the hotel. Room layout and decor was nice, mattresses were comfortable, but for some reason the pillows on this occasion were really uncomfortable. Didn't have that problem the last time I stayed, and I only really had about four hours to try and sleep this time so I wouldn't like to say this is a definite issue, but I've seen a couple of other similar comments so there's maybe a chance of it happening. You could probably ask for replacement pillows, the staff were outstandingly helpful and unfailingly polite in all instances, it just didn't seem worth it for a couple of hours so I didn't bother. Free WiFi available which worked alright, desk by reception sells bottles of water/pop at a relatively reasonable price (but there's a little shop directly across the street selling the same for about 1/3 the price). Nice hotel overall, and although I prefer an apartment for stays of more than a couple of days I'd be more than happy to stay a day or two here again (and I'd recommend it to anyone for any length of stay as long as they're happy with the pillows they get)
An average hotel with very clean rooms. Reliable hot water. Decent breakfast (cereal, breads, cold cuts, pastries & cake). About half hour walk into main souk area. Would be happy to stay again. Free Wifi - good signal in bedroom on 5th floor.
If you are looking for bland 4 or 5 star luxury then don't stay here! But if you want an exciting, traditional, quirky, colourful, extravaganza of a hotel then this is the place for you. Four women went on an adventure to Marrakesh and had a wail of a time. This hotel is approximately a mile from the very noisy, busy medina, it is a flat walk and easy to reach, but once you've been to the madness once or twice it is a blessing to be away from there. The hotel is situated off the main area, it has plenty of restaurants and bars in easy walking distance and is close to the shopping mall. Our favourite eating place was a small traditional cafe just around the corner from the hotel, it served local flat bread in the mornings made on a hot plate in front of the cafe, and delicious freshly squeezed orange juice, the lady even cooked us a special vegetable couscous to order on the Saturday night. Two of us were vegetarian, one a vegan and one a meat eater, we had no problem finding food for us all to eat. Marrakesh as a city has a lovely vibe, it feels like a cosmopolitan Arab country with a coffee shop culture. But getting back to the hotel, our room was spotlessly clean, the cleaners changed our beds everyday and we had fresh towels daily, there was a fridge and a safe (there was a charge for the safe) in the room and our room was wonderfully bazar and disjointed in decoration, it amused us the whole week. The large king size four poster bed had cream net draped all around it, we therefore nicknamed our bed Miss Havisham as it reminded us of her wedding dress! There were 4 ceilings with different traditional Moroccan designs that didn't really match but just made the room more quirky and the furniture was the traditional painted design. Each morning we sat out around the swimming pool which we are sure is lovely and warm in the summer but was very cold during March, you could only really cool your feet in it. The staff were wonderful and couldn't have been more helpful, they even arranged for us to have a tagine cookery lesson in the hotel kitchen with their chef. The wifi was fairly good throughout the hotel, including our room on the third floor. The hotel doesn't serve alcohol, but we bought our own and there is a wine bar and a supermarket just around the corner. I have stayed in many many hotels around the world, but so far this has to be my favourite!
This hotel needs to improve in several areas. The showers in our invariably ran out of hot water. The pillows were extremely hard. Breakfast tables are extremely uncomfortable as you cannot put your feet under the table. Other hotels in Morocco were better.
Unfortunately, Casablanca was nothing like the romantic idea that the movie sold us. In fact, there's very little appeal in it, besides the name. But this hotel looked great since we walked in and even greater once we saw the room: it was really big, with lots of space to sit, lie down or put our staff, which is far from the average in this country. And the decoration was the best type of Moroccan kitsch you could expect. Service was good, location as well, and breakfast wasn't bad except for the coffee. Very good option if you need to go to Casa to see four yourself that it was all just a Hollywood fantasy.
This hotel was part of a tour so didn't choose it. Like the rest of Morocco it was fairly chilly in all the common rooms during December. Breakfast had more selection than usual and it's within walking distance to the gardens and the old city souk. Although for buying anything I recommend stopping at the collective across from Cyber park instead as the mark-up was ridiculous in Marrakech where people wouldn't come down in price even when you knew what things should cost. Stairs are low, hit my head on the roof coming down, rooms are a little small and lack extra outlets to charge devices.
Was there at the end of December and the heating was not working in a lot of the rooms, several of the rooms have leopard print 4 poster beds with lots of dust attracting frllls, leaving you with the feeling that you are in a bordello. The beds were dirty with stains on the bedding. The flooring in the reception area is made up of heavily patterned tiles which make it very difficult to see the very small steps which are a dangerous trip risk.
The Moroccan House Hotel has a gorgeous lobby — but remember that's not where you sleep. The rooms have bedbugs! A complaint to management simply led to a room change, but the bedbug problem is throughout the hotel. Beware!
