Hotel Central Palace
Ranked #350 of 502 Hotels in Marrakech
Reviewed 20 September 2013

I had booked to stay at this hotel for three nights this September. I had received email confirmation that I had a booking for the room I had requested. On arriving at the hotel I was told there was no room available for me and that I could stay at his friend's hotel across the way, the usual trick! I received no apology for this (although this may have been due to the language barrier). The replacement room provided at the manager/owner's friend's hotel (Hotel de la Paix) was unattractive, on the ground floor, practically windowless and very noisy. I was told by the manager/owner of the original hotel and of the replacement hotel that they would see if there was an alternative room available for the remaining nights of my stay i.e. a less noisy room or a room on the first or seconds floors. Needless to say I did not hang around the next day to find out if these alternatives materialized. Breakfast was also not included in the price as expected.

Stayed: September 2013, travelled solo

We stayed there only for a day but found the premises quite clean. The rooms rates starts at 150 dirham to 405. A bit noisy but it so well located: directly on the main place

Quite a deal for that price. Room was nicely decorated

We stayed our first night in Marrakech at this hotel, 1 minute to djema el fnaa. We had to take one double room sharing the bathroom because the ones with private bathroom were complete. It was 155 dirham per room. Very nice patio, terrace, wifi, and change bureau at the entrance. A bit noisy and the room was perfectly clean and comfortable bed, the bath was not so well.

This hotel is in a very central location (hence the name) and was easy to stumble upon after the bus from the airport. The staff are very friendly, helpful and always eager to assist. They even helped us pronounce key Arabic words with good humour. The rooms are basic and very affordable, the interior courtyard was very beautiful and helped us relax from the midday heat. Rooms were 150Dh double shared bathroom. Again rooms were simple, no extras but comfortable and clean. Shower was what you would expect for this bargain price. Staff made this place a great stay and we would return without hesitation!

Room Tip: Windows facing street may be noisy at night.

Hotel is right off the main strip from the night market. As a result, very noisy so you will need ear plugs if you want to sleep. There is all night or early morning noise from people talking and hanging out in the alleyways around the hotel.

Room: Not very clean. Bedding dirty. No towels or supplies. Had to ask for towels.
Bathroom/ Toilets: Not very clean.

This is a place where you get what you pay for. Would not return.

The hotel is about a two and a half minute walk down the street from Djemaa El Fna, but neither of the two rooms in which we have stayed have been loud. Pretty small rooms, not much larger than the beds, but we only used the rooms for sleeping, so that was fine. One of the rooms had a slight smell, but I left a window open (it had bars in case you’re the safety conscious type) and it was no problem. The hotel is very clean, pretty though by no means fancy, and had a great wifi connection. I paid 250 Dirhams a night for a room with a toilet and shower (same price for 1 or 2 people sharing the room, which isn’t always the case in Morocco), which in Marrakech is a very good price, especially so close to Djemaa El Fna. The people who work at the reception desk are very friendly. Other commenters have mentioned concerns with leaving their key at the front desk – we just never handed it in when we left during the day and they never gave us any problem about it (that meant that our room was not cleaned during the day, but we didn’t really care about that). If we are looking for a no-frills, reasonably priced hotel in the Marrakech medina, we would definitely stay here again.
