We stayed at the Al Fassia following the cancellation of our booking at another hotel and what a stroke of good luck this was.
We arrived via a petit taxi from the airport to be greeted by the large ornate gates, hiding the quiet oasis within. The hotel itself seemed to be based on a large riad with the attached restaurant to the rear, the sister of which is award winning and based in the centre of the city.
Straight away all the staff made us very welcome and provided us with a wealth of local knowledge and literature. Our hotel deal was for one of the superior suites and we weren't disappointed it was spacious with a four poster bed, seating cushions, satellite tv and a bathroom almost as big as the room. It was spotless with a great View of the pool through the stained glass windows and the maid service was excellent.
We went in July which we we're told was the low season and so had the pool to ourselves every day and the undivided attention of the hotel staff. Breakfast was a particular treat and consisted of several Berber specialities including delicious pancakes.
the restaurant is also recommended as it is on the door step, is reasonably priced and also do a selection of alcoholic drinks.
The hotel is a taxi ride into town but is in a quiet location with a shopping mall and cinemas complex 100m away.
Marrakech is a great city to explore and the lonely planet guide was a great book to use with the associated map. We visited a number of the recommended sites and weren't disappointed. The Les Bains De Marrakech haman was excellent and great value and they provide private rooms for couples unlike the public ones.
Overall as regular independent travellers we were not disappointed by either our hotel which hugely impressed us or marrakech which is a city which still has much to offer where other have become over commercialised. A great trip
