“A very nice hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 December 2013

My friend & I stayed at the Opera Plaza at of the end of September this year. We went half board to make sure that we left the hotel to explore Marrakech. The hotel is located opposite the train station & about 20 minutes walk from the old city.

The breakfast buffet was lovely, with plenty of choice. The bedroom & bathroom were well decorated, with modern décor. The staff were friendly and attentive, although the lady making pancakes in thge morning was a little rude. The pool area was clean & looked like it was recently decorated. There weren't that many loungers so I imagine it can get very busy at peak times. The pool bar was quite over priced, as was the hotel bar. It cost the same for a lunchtime snack at the pool bar as it did for an evening meal at a local restaurant. The night time entertainment left a lot to be desired but that might have been because it was towards the end of the summer season. If it's like that all year round, if recommend spending your evenings elsewhere. All in all, a pleasant stay in a nice hotel!

Room Tip: Rooms with a pool view are quieter

We spent one week in the Opera Plaza Hotel in october for our honeymoon. We didn't get any special treatment for our honeymoon but that wasn't needed because the hotel was very good at taking care of alle the guests.

Breakfast: very large and mix between healthy and not so healthy stuff. We even got an early breakfast on request because we took an early trip.
The people working in the hotel are always very nice and healpfull, the cleaning lady's do their jobs perfectally.

It is ideally located for a visit to Marrakech, right outside the busy centre, but still in walking distance.

The prices in the restaurant are a bit high, but outside the hotel there are plenty of other options to eat.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that looks over the pool, because the street can be very noisy.

The Opera Plaza is a great Hotel. On this trip to Morocco I saw quite a few hotels in Marrakech and Casablanca both staying in and popping in for drinks and I have to say The Opera Plaza is still my favourite, well run with friendly efficient staff, good food and a beautiful pool......I feel I have to be fair to future travellers here so I have to throw a but in at this point.
Not a big one but it is a but never the less. If I describe to you the pool it is fantastically big, with a shallow end a paddling pool good size are for swimming lengths and a wonderful swim up bar. The pool itself is surrounded on all four sides by the Hotel. The Hotel is five stories high which means in the days of shorter sunshine the pool only gets the sun for a few short hours.
So you can find yourself sweltering in 30 degree heat and the pool is freezing.
My tip for the pool lovers, after September the Plaza is not for you......but the rest of the year it is my favourite in Marrakech.

Room Tip: Always ask for a room with a pool view, the ones on the outside can be a bit noisy

The photos do not do this hotel justice. The public areas and pool are lovely, and everywhere spotlessly clean. There seemed a permanent army of cleaners, all of whom would look up to wish a cheery Bonjour. The room was spacious and well appointed.
Breakfast was excellent and beautifully presented and had everything for British tastes, with exception of bacon.
We did not eat at the hotel but at Cafe Ayrz, round the corner, very fresh food and amazing value, catering mainly to locals (turn right out of hotel, right again after Planet Earth and follow the signs for cafe Ayrz, 3 minute walk). You can get water and soft drinks very cheaply from the kiosk just outside the hotel, just to the left, 7 dirhams for a Coke as opposed to 30 from minibar!
Staff all very helpful and multilingual, thank you in particular, Z.F.
It is a very pleasant 25-30 minute walk to the Medina.
Two caveats, the bath/shower is boxed in, in a recessed tiled area, which requires quite a bit of dexterity and concentration to get in and out. So if you have mobility issues, you should ask if they have a room with a walk in shower. Also, the bed was very firm, great for us, but some people like a soft bed. If you are sensitive to noise, get a poolside view room, at end of corridor.

Room Tip: Double glazing is effective, but if you want to have an open window, it is essential to avoid front...

This hotel has the most friendly and helpful staff from cleaners up (with the exception of one guy on reception early mornings.......a smile, please and thank you would have been nice.) The hotel room was a good size and very clean, with a superb choice of food. I would defiantly recommend this hotel and would return. Again, thank you staff for making me feel so welcomed.

We stayed here for three nights as part of a tour of the Imperial cities of Morocco. A really nice modern hotel. Large comfortable bedroom. Nice bathroom. Good thick,fluffy towels.
Nice bar and lounge area. Dining room attractively laid out. Buffet good with plenty of choice and regularly replenished.
We had a lovely Moroccan salad for lunch one day at the Cafe by the pool.
Staff very pleasant and helpful. Free wifi.
The hotel is well situated about a 10min taxi ride to the big square Djemma el Fna and Souk. It is in the French district and is situated on a large tree lined boulevard
Our room faced onto the pool and had a balcony ,table and chairs. A really nice place to return to after a busy day sightseeing.
Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel.

This is a good quality hotel located in the heart of the French district of Marrakech with the old district about a half hour walk. The rooms are big and comfortable, clean with nice beds. The hotel has a lovely inner courtyard with pool and plenty of space to relax either in or out of the sun. The restaurant is nice and the food very good with an emphasis on international cuisine. If you want local food you are spoiled for choice with the hundreds of restaurants in Marrakech. I found it a nice haven from the throbbing centre of old Marrakech. The staff our excellent and speak many languages. When I plan my next trip I will stay again. Good quality, nice welcoming hotel.

Room Tip: High up on inside overlooking pool so you can sun bathe on balcony
