The Sofiel is luxurious. The staff were so friendly and made us feel very welcome. An oasis of calm in a bustling, and in July, very hot city. As a family (with older teenagers) in Marrakech for a week, we knew that we would not be able to afford to eat at the hotel. The patisserie 'La Table du Marche' at the Hivernage Hotel provided our breakfast and snacks. The 'Cafe ExtraBlatt' serves western food and was useful but the food stalls at Djemma el Fna are cheap and suit a wide variety of tastes.
We visited sights each morning - taxis when required were very easy to use - walked in to the Souks which took no more than 15 mins - it got very hot in the afternoon. This was our opportunity to relax around the swimming pool. The pool staff were friendly and always helpful. A plate of fruit and some ice cold drinks (and a cold swimming pool) were very welcome. The atmosphere created is one of calm and relaxation. Much needed before we headed out in the evening. Djemma el Fina comes alive - storytellers, belly dancers, snake charmers - hustle and bustle. Watch out when you take a photo - a snake, a monkey or a hat may be placed on your person and then money asked for! We were given a room upgrade upon arrival...........rose petals on beds. Fresh flowers and complimentary water in rooms. We had a brilliant time in Marrakech - a much cheaper holiday than anticipated - we enjoyed the luxury of the Sofitel. Would definately recommend this hotel.
