Moroccan House Hotel Marrakech3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Not close to the famous Marrakech Square but not too far, about 20 minutes walk. There are restaurants nearby the hotel. Nice room and lobby. Nice staff. Elevators are tiny and the other thing is that you get a lot of noise from the street even if the windows are close.
We stayed here for two nights because our tour company began its 7-day trip at this hotel. The hotel is ornately decorated and beautiful. The layout is fine and the rooms are basic but beautiful. Our first night there was a water leak before we had used any water so we were granted another room. The second room had a toilet with a flusher that got stuck and ended up leaking on the floor as well. Overall the staff is courteous and the hotel is very centrally located. I hope this helps!
We booked this Hotel two days before we flew to Marrakesh and stayed for six nights The Hotel is in the new, modern part of Marrakesh called Gueliz. It is only a few minutes from modern high street shops and a shopping mall. You can walk to the Medina which takes about 1 hr or a 10 minute taxi ride which shouldn't cost more than 40 or 50 dirham. The reception area is stunning. Beautiful in a Moroccan style ( shame the fountain was never on though! ) There is plenty of seating. very good wifi reception too. The swimming pool area seemed a little neglected. The loungers had no thick foam cushions on except two. And those two were ripped. The pool was extremely cold. We had a look at the roof terrace and might have expected more but it was just a storing area with furniture stored away and laundry hanging out to dry. Our room was nice with a double and a single bed. we also had a fridge, TV and air conditioning. Unfortunately the room had not been dusted for a while. The telephone especially was covered in thick dust. I ran my finger over it and it was still there until we left!! I didn't dare to check other places. House keeping just changed towels, The beds weren;t made properly and my husband's pillow case was taken off but not replaced. If you haven't booked breakfast you can pay 5 Euros and still enjoy breakfast. I thought the breakfast was really good but once we came down at 9 am and there was hardly anything left and I had to ask for cheese. Other items had also ran out. The coffee in the flasks were luke warm unfortunately. But the apple cake was very delicious. Some of the staff were very friendly but some could have been a bit friendlier. The porter was very nice when he took our suitcases up but after that he barely looked at us. I would have given this Hotel a higher rating if the room had been a bit cleaner. I still enjoyed my stay even though I was woken up most nights with guests coming home at 2 am and talking, laughing and shouting loudly. I think management should have signs up asking guests to be quiet after a certain time.
Spent two nights here either side of a trek in the Atlas Mountains. Very efficient hotel - everything worked and the staff were attentive. Breakfast was fine - typical Moroccan buffet with bread, jams and pastries. Rooms are air conditioned and quiet enough. We had a 2nd floor room at the back, and a 4th floor room at the front. The room at the front had double glazing which meant we couldn’t hear any road noise from outside. Small swimming pool in the courtyard behind the hotel is a nice touch. It was very cold in late October, but that’s no surprise. 30 minute walk or 10 minute taxi to Diema Ef Fna and the medina. I wouldn’t describe it as a luxury hotel, but then it doesn’t claim to be. It’s clean, comfortable and a very good value base for exploring Marrakech.
Stayed here with my daughter for a week half board. The room was good if a bit smaller than the photos suggested, but comfortable and air conditioned. The food was excellent, and we are vegetarian but nothing was too much trouble. Massive portions and delicious salads and tagines. The reception staff were very helpful, booking trips for us and very good humoured. The waiting staff were brilliant, welcoming and funny! They made our stay really special, it was a week we will never forget. I hope to return soon for another unforgettable stay. Oh and the pool was great and a must in August heat. Thank you all at Moroccan House!
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!
