“Excellent Value for Money @ Almas Hotel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2014

The hotel is situated in the new town, approximately 2.5km away from the crowds and hub hub of the old medina town centre. It has a lovely roof top swimming pool that towers over most of the other buildings in the area. Very lovely for a sunset by the pool area to also look out over the city. The bedroom was extra large with a massive double king size bed and largest shower room I have ever seen. Most importantly it was extremely clean and the staff were most friendly. Excellent value for money at 25 OMR per night!

I choose this hotel from what i read on here and i was very happy with the whole holiday. i will say i was on holiday with wife and my 20 yr old son. The room was on the front and i understand that everyone says it is to load from the street .. yes it is busy but never kept us awake at all.The breakfast was what i expected nothing fancy and a bit boring but i didnt choose the hotel for my breakfast,It is a simple breakfast but enough to fill you up.
the location is great. very close to all the great shopping and dining places.2 minute walk to Starbucks/McDonalds/KFC and eating places if thats what you want. my only downside is the whole place speaks more French than English but that is my fault not theres. All in all a very nice hotel with great staff.The pool is cold but i used it nearly everyday.

Location:
The hotel is situated in the Gueliz of Marrakech. The hotel is easily recognisable by its blue neon sign on the top of the hotel at night. There are a few restaurants near by which have good ratings on Tripadvisor such as Amaia and Al Bahriya.

Getting around:
Getting to Place Jemaa El Fna by petit taxis cost around 20 to 30dh (most expensive at night, I wouldn't pay more than 40dh. Getting from and to the airport costed us 40dh after some haggling. Otherwise walking to the walk takes about 25 mins with some nice gardens on the way.

Service:
The staff were friendly and speaks reasonably good english. The porter took us to our room but did not even expect any tips. The rooms were cleaned and tidied daily.There is a swimming pool and some sunbeds on the roof (closes at 20:00) with towels provided. Wifi is free and needs no password. No deposit was required on arrival.There is tourist tax which you can pay on arrival or check out. It was 11dh per person per night. You can also book excursions from the hotel which were reasonable price. (We went on a day trip to Ait Benhaddou & Ouarzazate for 350 dh each). Breakfast was continental and starts from 06:30.

Room:
We stayed in a triple room, which had 3 large beds. Pretty comfortable and clean. There is a small fridge in the room. TV and good air conditioning. Although please be aware they do not provide toothbrush and toothpaste so bring your own.

Overall we had a lovely stay at this hotel. Everything ran smoothly with no problems. If you like sea food, the restaurant next door Al Bahriya is a must try. You can even get a great take away from there for 40dh.

This is the 2nd time we have stayed at the hotel. I come to marrakech every year for business, but bring my husband as we enjoy the city, the sunshine, the culture, the food. Previously we have stayed in the Medina - there is no doubt the Riads are beautiful but Hotel Almas is by far the way to go. It's a close walk to the Medina to get into the hustle and bustle but offers a much more calm, comfortable experience.

All rooms are air conditioned (a major plus!) great value for money - not to mention the beds are HUGE! We enjoyed the rooftop pool on this occasion which was great to get some sun and then cool off.

There are heaps of great restaurants around the hotel in walking distance. We love Cafe de la Poste and Bagatelle just around the corner. Great value and excellent food. It;s easy to get a taxi from right outside and the staff all speak excellent english.

A top choice for staying in Marrakech every time!

Am staggered by some of the comments about the Hotel Almas - the breakfasts were typical continental breakfasts...perhaps some of the reviewers were expecting a full English, complete with bacon and pork sausages !
The rooms were spacey and clean, and our room was cleaned every day, unless we put the 'Do not disturb' sign on the door handle.
As for the reception staff - we found them friendly and helpful - we were given a map, and where we wanted to go was marked on the map for us. Most spoke at least passable English, some good.
Would we stay there again....undoubtedly yes !
We found good (and cheap) restaurants nearby (the closest being 2 doors away !), and loved the meal we had at Al Fassia.

Room Tip: Our room was at, the back of the hotel, on the 3rd floor. Certainly wasn't noisy.

This is a nice, clean hotel in the new town. Nice price, good value for the money. The staff speaks good english and are helpful. Big rooms, small nice balcony. Rooftop pool was very cold (but thats normal in Marrakech in this time in the year) Nice breakfast. It takes ca 30 minutes to walk to Jemaa El Fna. I think its a bit sad that you dont get the Morroccan feeling in the hotel, its a bit "boring". But all in all, its a nice clean hotel.

This was my first time at this hotel and I was not impressed. The breakfast was bland and the same thing was served everyday, They only served dry bread rolls, two selection of pastry, the only hot food there was boiled eggs and pancakes which felt like eating rubber. Could not communicate with the hotel staff at reception unless you spoke Arabic or French. Staff was very unhelpful, every time you asked for help they would just seem uninterested.

There was no wifi connection in the pool area. I'm shocked that no one used the pool during my stay, It was freezing cold! You had to ask to have the bed sheets changed and the housekeeping staff did not understand. There was so many times we were disturbed whilst in our room as they kept entering without knocking and walking in and walked out when they realised we were there. Definitely need to have some sort or hanger to say Do Not Disturb! The shower was so weak, no refreshments in the room. There's also a sign saying no food or drink to be taken into the rooms! Lamps were not working, had to change our key card like 5 times because it would not open our door.,

I was really worried at the security of this hotel. There was no safe in the rooms. Even on the last day we left our luggage in the room near reception, people were just helping themselves in the room to get their belongings, anyone can take your stuff, was not monitored at all! Apart from it's in a good location. I would not recommend this hotel as it should be a one star.
