This hotel is next to a train station where you can exchange your currency with better rate than in UK. It is walking distance to the posh hotel La Mamounia if it is not too hot to walk. One can reach most places by taxi for around 40 Dirhams which is less than £4. However you have to agree with the price first before you get in the taxi. La Mamounia opens its beautiful big garden to the public between 11 to 3 pm every day. La Maison Arabe is another beautiful hotel with restaurant where they serve good food at reasonable price. The souks, El Bahia Palace and Majorelle Garden are worth a visit. We missed the museum of the garden because it only opens after 10 but our tour left by then. The hotel has a spa which I tried a full body massage at reasonable price. The pool is either too hot to swim during mid day or too cold in the late afternoon. This is in May. May be different in other time. Food in the bar next to the pool is good. Evening meal is buffet serving a big variety of food and are quite good. The down side is during dinner they do not provide drinks. Not even water so one have to buy bottle water let alone wine and other soft drinks. No tea or coffee either. Breakfast was good with good variety. They cook you omelette fresh with fillings of your choice. Rooms are spacious and clean. All in all a nice place to stay.
The Hotel is well located.Rooms are nice,best take to poolside because of Noice .breakfast is very good.good Choice.Restaurant with Buffet.italian Restaurant Inside..nice bar.easy to get to Centre with Taxi.
Was a bit skeptical after reading mixed reviews but we booked for our last two nights in Marrakesh as we needed a change from a riad in the chaos of the old town. Pleasantly surprised. Room was spacious, although bathroom a little dated and bath was high to step over for shower. Breakfast was very good and pool area was spacious. Book a room with balcony and pool view otherwise you’ll be facing the road and guess it could be noisy. As per a previous review the process for getting a towel for the pool is extreme - you give a 200dh per towel deposit to reception (this is when we discovered there is a second reception for a different hotel, see below) who give you a card. You then exchange this card for a towel with the attendant pool side. Having read a review i took cash down to the pool to do this, but can appreciate it would be annoying to have to go back to your room (or worse to a cash point) as there is no note in room and no-one tells you on checkin. Red hotel also appears to be the same hotel- there is a second reception on the other side of the building. Looks like all rooms were the same so be with checking if any cheaper to book with them (their reception area felt slightly less impressive). Checkin and checkout was efficient. They were also happy to print our boarding passes for us. Would suggest leaving enough time to checkout however as they will check the mini-bar in room which was done very efficiently, however they only have 1 person on the desk (which proved slightly annoying when our room key card failed the day before and we had to queue to get a new one). We paid £69 a night for 2people, which we were happy with for a last minute weekend booking at the start of May. Had we paid much more we would have been more critical of the elements that felt a little dated.
Our room was spacious and had just about everything one could want except for coat hooks. It looked out over the large central courtyard, and had a balcony with table and chairs. Double sliding windows kept the noise of parties and children out very effectively, but I don't think I would have wanted a room on the outside of the hotel looking over the very busy arterial roads on which it was located. Food was plentiful and varied, but not always best quality. However we ate well enough. Staff, with the odd exception, were cheerful, efficient and helpful. We really liked the bar/lounge area with plenty of comfortable seating. I thought the hotel's main disadvantage was that it was just a bit more than comfortable walking distance from the Medina and main touristy sights, though taxis were cheap and numerous. In conclusion we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was a shame that just prior to leaving we were accosted by a staff member and accused of not paying our bill, which we had settled a couple of hours earlier. They took a bit of convincing, even though I was able to produce the receipt they had given me. Happy days!
We stayed here three nights at the end of an 11 day tour of Morocco. It’s modern, clean, the included breakfast is very good and they provide good service, except for one lady who was working at the pool reception (you have to pay a refundable towel deposit which I found stupid), she was very mean and nasty. The location is great, very large clean rooms (ours had two balconies over looking the street), with double door that blocked out the traffic noise.
I was reading some of the 1 star reviews and was concerned, but I personally had no issue. Room was incredibly clean and luxurious. The hallway was a little dark, and the elevator foyer area was often dark (it took a while for the lights to switch on), but it was no big deal. There are plenty of restaurants within the hotel, including breakfast in the morning, and many more restaurants a few blocks away as well. Inside, there is also a cigar lounge area with live music. Its close enough to the sight seeing tourist Medina area where the square and mosques are - probably 20 minutes or less of walking. Also within a few minutes walking distance are many beautiful and tranquil parks. The front desk was also helpful. For example, I got a SIM card at the airport, but it only had data, but was unable to make cards. They told me where to go to add minutes (at the shop in the train station next door) so I could make calls. My only complaint, which is echoed in other reviews, is that the wifi is very flaky. That's OK, they give out SIM cards at the airport.
Not as good as the reviews I read before booking this hotel There is no complimentary water which is a complete deal breaker as all the other hotels I stayed would provide water and then top it up in the evenings. No slippers (but that's my high expectation I suppose) - water pressure good BUT the shower will go hot and cold randomly i.e. when it goes cold step back because it will get really hot for a few seconds and almost scorch you - very inconsistent. Reception desk very small - doesn't really feel like a hotel lobby. They also have a light saving mode in all corridors - so you have to find buttons on walls to light up the hallways, this is a complete pain and a bit weird tbh. You have to pay £17 (Approx) deposit per pool towel - mmmm not sure about that one either? GOOD things - like all of Morrocco the staff and hospitality are wonderful. The pool area is probably the best thing about this hotel - however it is not heated and is well chilly (probably fine in the height of summer though)! but very nice to relax in this area. Cleanliness is good and the ambience too. Breakfast - just above average but enough to start your day. Generally an okay hotel in the new area of Marrakech - fairly close to malls and restaurants etc I'd like to thank all staff but afraid I won't see them again as I wouldn't return.
I stayed at the hotel with my family.very clean hotel. The staff are all lovely and nothing is too much trouble. Nice rooms, lovely view from balcony, great spread at breakfast. Amazing facilities, Good location. Definitely recommend 😬 thank you all for a pleasant stay we had the most wonderful time.. You must stay here if you travel to Marrakesh
I booked this place back in 2016 wasn’t expecting much. When I got to the hotel all I could say is omg the best hotel in marrakech. The service, quality, staff were amazing. Excellent hygiene. You must stay here if you travel to Marrakech
I stayed at the hotel on a Riviera tour. My room was enormous - 2 large single beds & 1 normal single. The bed linen & towels were a good quality. The shower in the bath was excellent, although I had to concentrate to climb in & out of the bath. Breakfast was good, with an egg station, but I thought the main course in the evening was very uninspired. The deserts were the highlight of the meal! I was annoyed I had to have my key card reprogrammed 5 times in the first 3 days and the wifi reception was to say the least intermittent. Quite a few of us ate in the hotel's Moroccan restaurant one evening & I have to say, the food was much better than in the main restaurant. The hotel is situated in the new part of Marrakech, just across the road from the train station & to go into the old town it was best to get a taxi.
