The Marrakech hotel is illegal (search the forum for lots of threads on this) - if I were you, I'd cancel this immediately and start looking for an alternative.

Here's a recent thread on the Marrakech - tripadvisor.ca/ShowTopic-g60763-i5-k5653439-…

I remember Marrakech when it was Malibu Studio Suites, a weekly rental back in the 80's - a SRO. Recall it is a 5 story walk-up, no elevator, shared bath down hall which do not think ever cleaned. It was like $150/week to stay there in own room.

Found 81 complaints filed, as they did construction without permits, combining with 2 other buildings to expand and modify use as hotel. I stayed there a few weeks between apartments and probably worst place ever stayed in Manhattan, but lots of young people braved it, mostly from overseas. If trying to save money I would look at Long Island City, a hotel like Comfort Inn, near the subway.

thanks guys, got in touch with lastminuite.com to cancel this booking. there was a post in september from a lady who booked then found out it was illegal. so i got some great info from her post. i dint even know there were illegal hotels, should have done some research first.

at £400 for 10 nights i was egar to book as it was mega cheap.

if it seems too good to be true, it probably is.
