We stayed here for 5 nights in early February- two late 20's females. We got a super cheap last minute deal ( Flights and Hotel £200)and it absolutely fufilled requirements.
We asked for a room with a balcony in an email before we went - which I would recommend. The room was airy and spacious. The bedroom had twin beds pushed together, but as it was January it got quite cold in the evenings so we put on the heater which was available in the room. The bedroom and bathroom were both clean. The bath was a bit chipped, but shower was good and plenty of hot water.
The breakfast was good - pancake and omelette station, boiled eggs, toast, pastries, cereals, cheese, olives and some tinned fruit. There were also some strange juices (Cucumber,Carrot,Beetroot) which i imagine were for the detoxers - I however stuck to tea!
The location was also good for us as we didnt want to stay in the chaotic medina. It was a 25min walk to Jamal el Fna down Rue Yougoslavie. As we are young(ish) spritely things, and the weather was pleasant the walk was no problem. I dont imagine I would want to do it in the middle of summer though.
We walked this a few times, but after a long day we also got a Cab (max 100MAD) or horse and carriage back ( max 150MAD) back to the hotel.
There was a handy supermarket a few roads down ( where we bought some drinks to put in our room fridge) as well as a handy corner shop 15m down from the hotel. There were plenty of restaurants in the vacinity - so eating local wasnt a problem - however some of the more popular/expensive restaurants you have to book ( we missed out going to a recomended restaurant over the road as we didnt book ahead)
The pool was under refurb when we went - but looked nice.On one sunny day we headed up to the massive roof terrace which had amazing views of Marrakech and the Atlas mountains. As it was a Tuesday afternoon - we had the whole thing to ourselves.
Last thing is staff. The reception staff were all friendly and polite - the restaurant staff were less so.
