Nice hotel, but the next time I would book à hotel in the medina. You have to take the taxi to the medina, which costs only 2 dollar or 3 during the night.

We stayed in this hotel for 2 weekends, either side of a trip up Atlas mountains and I would recommend it.

Rooms are reasonably sized, clean and well decorated.

Breakfast is rather nice too.

Point to note - it's about 30 minute walk to Jeema el Fna, but that would apply to all hotels in this area (Gueliz)

we stayed at this hotel for a long weekend (3 women) we found our room was comfy with a balcony, hot water and enough room for the 3 of us. the best bit of advice i think i could pass on is to walk approx 10 mins to get the city bus tour best deal is for 2 days the first day we did the city tour and it gave u a good insight into what things are where etc. u can hop on and off whenever u wish like going up to the medina at night. the second day the bus went outwith the inner city out to a historical tour was good but a little chilly sitting on the open air bus. again this ticket can be used to hop on and off the bus over the 2 days and saved us taxi to the medina. some nice resturants about but the hotel did serve nice meals and the staff are helpfull , sometimes its hard to understand us but there english is better than my french .the people are very poor and please watch ur pockets in the square at night, lots of pickpocketers about. when they try speaking to u and ur not interested just say been here lots of times and they leave u alone. overall we enjoyed it but it is a little scary if u go outwith the city walls like us. hope this helps and enjoy your time.

Room Tip: we had room 205 at the back so a little quieter but hotel next door is a building site so works star...

The Hotel is what is says on the can - a budget hotel. We got a double room with a balcony. Overall I was happy with my stay. a few minor issues but nothing from the hotel that spoilt the trip. The Good Vs Bad review below is for the hotel....

The Good
========
- Staff were always friendly. Some of them had trouble speaking English and I couldn't speak Arabic or french, but we managed well. Where speaking and hand signals didn't work, just writing it down helped.
- The do a killer Moroccan mint tea!!
- The hotel is 30 - 45 minute walk to Jama al Fna (the square); 20-30 mins to the main train station and about 45 mins to the Menra.
- The red open top sight seeing bus is only 10 minutes from the hotel. Walk up to the main road and turn right and walk down a bit till you come to a red golf umbrella. Despite being so close one of the reception staff didn't know about it and nearly sent us up to the Jama al Fna, even though they had the map at reception the other day.

The Bad
========
- The curtains were like hard paper and I had to hook the end so it closed properly.
- The glass under the mirror was about to fall off!

As for the country... it is crazy! So many poor people. some even run after you asking for money/food when they know you are a tourist. Prices are quoted at 5 times what they actually sell for and they expect you to bargain... all the time... it is very exhaustive going shopping if you are not used to bargaining for everything all the time. Don't be shy to start at 1/5 of the price they quote, i.e. if they say 100Dhs start at 20 Dhs and never pay more than half the price they start at. I found wearing their tunic with the hood helped with this problem a bit... well at least until I started to talk and said 'only english'.

In the end it is a country that offers a lot of sights, sounds and smells (good and bad). It is worth a visit, but be smart, the locals here aren't as innocent as they seem. But then again they are very poor and probably trying to make as much as they can.

Room Tip: Get one with a balcony. Not much of scenery as its all building but gives you somewhere to wind down...

i stayed here for a week so i think i can comment, its in the new part of the city and is easy to find and get out and see the tourist bits,
first the rooms they are modern clean and i had no problems at all with hot water, i was in room 306 large bed looks out on the back of the hotel but next door is a new hotel and they start work at nine am so if you want a late night stay at the front, the street is not very busy at all they are some very high class shops near by and some great french restaurants ,
the hotel restaurant is very good the chef knows how to cook a great meal if they do not have if he will cook it for you and i had some great dinners there.
service the staff are hard working people and will try to help you please remember that french is spoken but english is a third language so speak slowly,
trips can be booked here to any place at a fair price the hotel has tight security and a man is on call 24 hours to help you, breakfast is really good with fresh fruits juice cakes ect.
each room has a/c so if its cold at night turn it on take a coat because at night its a colod place during the day its warm,
you might think its not near the hotspots well after one night in a raid you will be happy here no all night tourist on the drink peace and safe the owner speaks great english and he owns a pizza restaurant that is the best say hello from adam they know who i am and have a great time .

Room Tip: have room 306

Overall, this hotel is kind of run down, but if you are looking for a reasonably priced basic hotel in Marrakesh then this hotel would suffice.

The rooms are clean, if somewhat old and dated. Street front rooms can get a bit noisy. The hot water for the shower was not working for one day that we were there.

Breakfast has a reasonable variety of food, however I strongly recommend that the coffee is avoided at all costs.

Located in the newer part of Marrakesh, with an easy 25-30 minute walk to the Medina.

I stayed here on an Intrepid tour. There were several problems:
- the hotel lost half of my laundry and were very rude when I tried to get them to locate it
- the hotel staff were rude
- there was no hot water in the shower
- the rooms are dark
- the maid walked into my room with another guest just after I had showered and was naked. She didn't understand or care about my protests or give me a chance to cover up
Awful experience.
