I went to Marrakech at least 6 times between 2000 and 2014 always experiencing different locations, hotels, styles (ryad, de luxe hotels, cheap hotels, etc.) I finally found my place in the city at Le Borjis del Kasbah. There are a couple of reasons why I said that. First: the hotel. Les Borjis is a charming, quiet, clean small hotel combining the charme of a ryad with the services of an hotel (spa, swimming pool, concierge, large and comfortable rooms, etc.) The staff is friendly and efficient, the breakfast is excellent. The restaurants is worthwhile, it offers good Moroccan or international cuisine. Second: the area. The casbah is walking distance from Jema el Fna and the souks and offers the experience to live in the Old Medina, while it’s slightly removed from the most chaotic and crowded area. Third: the house. This is and ancient building amazingly restored by local craftsmen who recreated the atmosphere of an old Moroccan estate. The wooden moucharabia that closed the room was a real masterpiece, such as the decorations of the façade and the floor. Please note that if you are looking for a modern, full service, luxury hotel with an Olympic swimming pool, this is not the place for you. But if you look for a quintessentially Marrakech experience, Moroccan hospitality at its best, do not hesitate to book a room here.
