“Reasonable standard hotel”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2014

This place probably suffers from the fact it is used by a lot of budget travel companies, so in a way doesn't really need to try too hard.
On my arrival the reception staff were not too interested in helping.
The rooms are OK , Worn but clean, rather bland and spartan. The bathrooms are shabby, as are the towels and hot water totally unreliable. In December this was not a plus.
Public areas are ok, breakfast is good enough but not a buffet. We had dinner there the first night and I was delicious.
As part of a tour, it is a reasonable place, except for lack of hot water, but if you're an independent traveller, you'd be better of staying closer to the medina and in somewhere far more atmospheric and with some character.

Stayed December 2013, travelled with friends

The negative reviews of this hotel were not warranted. It is acually quiet pleasant and while run down a little, this entire country is worn down a lot and one must take that into account when making expectations. The breakfast, criticized elsewhere, is actually quite good. The service and attitude of staff was friendly. It's not fancy, but clean and efficient, and nothing wrong with it either.

The hotel is located in the new town and lacks any atmosphere locally. For friendly chaos, book accommodation in the Medina, but don't expect high standards.

Stayed here like a lot of people as a result of a booking from a trekking company. Stayed one night either side of the trek. The accommodation was clean and the staff very friendly but as previous posts have said it was well past its sell by date . In need of serious modernization. Breakfast was a fixed menu of bread roll , croissant , orange , cheese triangle , boiled egg , marmalade and coffee. Lifts clanked and groaned under the weight and we heard what sounded like wires parting. No drama though and we lived to tell the tale. I have to mark it very low as a result of the actions of the man who took our bags to the taxi. We had pre booked the cab through the tour guide for the airport and was told 100 Dirhams . The porter tried to tell us it was now 150 because of the cases. This was an obvious attempt at getting a kick back . We refused to pay up front so he never got his bung from the driver . I advise all travelers to agree a price up front and refuse to budge when they try it on.

The location is excellent for the price. About 10 minute walk to main square, but pleasant walk along the city wall - you can always get a cab for 20MD (£2).

My room was quite large for one person and had a balcony overlooking the pool area. Room was clean but a little outdated, which is very common for Morocco. The downtairs area is nicely set out with plenty of seating places and also has a little restaurant. The food in the restaurant is quite good, but not a lot of choice.

Has WI-FI in your room - big bonus for Morocco :-)

Breakfast was basic but ample consisting of tea/coffee, breads, croissant, jam etc - the best part is the freshly squeezed orange juice!

Staff are very lovely - nothing is too much trouble.

I stayed here at the beginning and end of a two week trek in the High atlas. Contrary to many of the reviews I was pleasantly surprised. It isn't 4 star by UK standards but both our rooms were clean with comfortable beds. Service was occasionally a bit haphazard but the staff were courteous and keen to help. It would have been nice to stay a little closer to the centre of town, but standards were higher than in a lot of hotels I've stayed in while participating in adventure holidays in Europe. No complaints at all!

This sad hotel was old and the staff were rude and unhelpful. It was just terrible. Don't do it. Nothing nice to say about this place. I stayed here as the start of a tour, I don even know how they stay in business.

My friend and I stayed at the hotel at the start and at the end of a tour we had in Morocco. This hotel is located in the westernised part of Marrakech and isn't particularly great if you want to throw yourself into the culture. For some of our trip we stayed in a riad in the old medina which wasn't part if the tour and was much more exciting.
But back to the hotel, it's clean enough but the rooms are basic. It has everything you need though: tv, clean bathrooms, comfy beds. If you're looking for somewhere to crash and eat breakfast then this is perfect, if you're looking for something a bit more fancy, I'd suggested booking somewhere else. Luckily we were not, so it was fine. I can't comment on the price unfortunately, as our stay was paid as a part of a the tour. Our first room had a balcony which was great, but when we returned, our view wasn't particularly brilliant and we had had no balcony.
The only complaint I really had was breakfast; it took a while to come as you have to sit down and wait to be served, so just leave plenty of time for breakfast if you need to get off somewhere. Breakfast was good though, typically Moroccan!
The walk from the hotel to the old Medina and Jemma Fna Square is simple, easy and only takes about 10 mins. The supermarket is about 2 mins away and sells everything.
The hotel also has a pool which was clean, although always seemed a little quiet. Staff were friendly and always willing to help.
I gave an average rating due to the breakfast, location and lack of a real Marrakech experience - but all depends on what you want!
