This is a beautifully restored old Morrocan house with an interior courtyard. It has been sensitively converted, and feels more like a private dwelling, of the kind that might be 200, or for all I know even 600 years old, but with all necessary modern improvements. The atmosphere of calm when you enter the front door is very welcome, after the noise and bustle outside. There are areas in the courtyard or on the roof, under an awning, where one can relax as a break from dodging the mopeds in the narrow lanes of the souk. The only problem we had was in finding it: we should have taken the advice we were given, to phone through from the Cafe de France in the main square and wait to be guided to it.
Both Jean-Pierre (representing the management) and the 'majordomo', Lahcen, were most helpful and made our stay as pleasant as possible. They both gave us very useful advice and information on where to go and what to do in Marrakech and elsewhere. I can definitely recommend this for those people who prefer an alternative to the typical soulless concrete block type of hotel which is springing up outside the city walls in Marrakech.
