It's ideally located close to the main square and its rooms are very stylish; we stayed in the Hitchcock room (it's tiny, but big enough if you're only there for a couple of nights and don't have lots of luggage with you), but had a chance to have of the other rooms and they were all charming. What's good about it is that they have rooms in different price ranges, so there's something for everyone. They also have a beautiful roof tarace where you can relax and soak in city's atmosphere. And last, but not least, the hosts were unbelievably helpful, which made our life so much easier.

Room Tip: Hitchcock room is lovely, but a bit too small for a couple with lots of luggage.

Very recently, I was in Marrakech and stayed six nights at the Hotel du Tresor -- actually, four at the Hotel du Tresor and two at its sister hotel, the Maison du Tresor. I enjoyed both. Both are in the medina, so staying there puts you closer to that experience. It is less than five minutes on foot to the main square. The hotels are small, but each room is very comfortable and decorated differently. The breakfast was good, and the overall service was excellent. The staff -- particularly Mustafa and Amine -- went the extra mile to make sure my stay was enjoyable. On three occasions, I had to leave on day trips before the official start of breakfast, but people got up early to make sure I could eat. When I came back from a three-day trip, I was staying at the sister hotel and had no idea how to find it in the maze that is the medina -- so a person from the hotel walked out to meet me in the square. The nightly rate was a good value, too. All in all, I highly recommend the du Tresor.

There are so many riads in Marrakech, from over the top 1001 nights follies to back packing flea pits. the The former rapidly induce good taste overload, the latter are beyond the pale. The Trésor - which I have been going to for five years - is different. It is small - as are most of the rooms - but with an enormously eclectic design, well priced and stocked with the most delightful, kind and efficient staff you could possibly hope for. Good looking too! If you want a real Marrakshi experience, with a funky twist, look no further than this treasure.

Room Tip: La Suite Bleu!

We just loved this hotel - it is less than five minutes' walk from the Djemaa el Fna and the souks and a short cab ride from the new city. We had booked the Hitchcock room and then changed to the Giancoma room but when we arrived we were given the Hitchcock room anyway. We didn't mind as it was big enough for our needs and a little bit cheaper and the owners didn't try to charge us for the more expensive room.
The room had lovely touches, furniture and artefacts sourced by the Italian owner, who stopped by once during our visit and made sure to introduce himself.
A local gastronomic tours company uses this hotel and swears by it - if you're worried about being in the hotel when a group is present best to check whether they have a tour going on when you're there. There was one scheduled to start the day after our departure which was perfect as the tour company owners were in house and able to advise us on where to eat, snack and take tea (Al Fassiah for dinner is a must-do and Cafe Epices is great for light lunches with a view).
The beauty of this hotel is that it has just enough Moroccan flavour without being a full-on assault to the senses. The bed was comfy, my main and only criticism was of the shower - the head needs replacing so it is more efficient and stops flooding the bathroom floor (which gets cleaned anyway so not a major drama).
The most amazing thing about this hotel is that every single surface gets scrubbed clean every day - I walked around the whole hotel, rooftop, terrace etc with no shoes and my feet were completely clean!
Breakfasts are plentiful - the standard Moroccan fare of crepes, bread, cheeses, yoghurt, juice and cake - a different one baked every day).
For the price, this hotel is hard to beat.

We are 2 single females who stayed in the Panton room. This room was great for our needs, the shower was good and the bathroom was private en-suite. Mustafa was really helpful, and offered to take us to reputable agents to book excursions, and told us the cheapest way to get to Essaouira for a day trip. Breakfast was lovely...bread, cake (different every day), pancakes, yogurt, cheese spreads and coffee/orange juice. The lady who cleans is brilliant, we came back to fresh bed linen and towels every day, and she tidied up our room, which made us feel very guilty for leaving such a mess! The location is perfect and very safe, but I would recommend filming the route the first time you go out, or you won't find your way back!! We are definately coming back here, it's the best place for us to stay, and the staff are wonderful. Tip - eat at Chez Chegrouni, it's gorgeous. Don't be intimidated by having to write down your order, it comes back as your receipt.

Super nice hotel and great location! The blue suite that we stayed had a cozy interior but the best thing was the terrace. We really recommend this place!

This is my second time to Marrakech and we has a fabulous time at Hotel Du Tresor. Although it is called a Hotel it is infact a Riad (courtyard hotel). We arranged an airport transfer for 15 Euros each way whis was great, we were met at airport by a private large car (it could probably hold 4 to 5 people with luggage) as the Hotel is right in the centre of Medina it is not possible to take the car right to the door so we were met by Fasel and Mustafa whe helped us with our luggage to the hotel which was only 3 minutes walk away. We were showed to our room, which was small but exactly as it was pictured on the website, we chose a twin room and these seem smaller than the doubles. Once we unpacked and got changed Fasel showed us the area, the way to the main square and to and from the 2 main streets that run parallel to each side of the hotel, it felt a bit of a maze to start with but once we recognised a few landmarks we were fine and there's always a local who will point you in the right direction (they may also want to take you to their friends shop or restaurant first) but don't be put off as the majority of the locals are genuine. On our second day it looked different in the daylihgt and we went the wrong way one man said it was closed but we didn't believe him as we had come accross this tac tic before, however it was actually a dead end and we had to come back a bit red faced but it's all part of the fun of Marrakech.
We had breakfast on the roof terrace or the breakfast room every morning which was very good, home made pancakes, jam, bread, amazing fresh orange juice, eggs, yoghurt, tea and coffee. We usually ate between 9 and 10am but I noticed that breakfast seemed to be available until everyone had been, my friend didn't surface until 11am one day and stil got breakfast.
The ladies who see to breakfast and all the cleaning are superb very welcoming and the place is spotlessly clean they always seemed to be cleaning somewhere or other. There were a couple of times that there didn't seem to be any hot water when we showered at about lunch time but the water wasn't too cold, I guess it's on a timer or something, we tended to have breakfast and relax on the terrace for a couple of hours then get shower and head off for the afternoon.
Amine, Fasel and Mustafa all speak very good English and were always on hand if we needed directions, advice or if we wanted to book a table, in fact Fasel gave me his mobile number incase we needed help.
The plunge pool is lovely but was very cold, perhaps it was because we were there in Febuary/March and since its a long way up to the terrace it's a bit far to run down for a cool dip.
The terrace area has lots of chairs and umbrellas a lovely seating area and some sunloungers to relax. From the roof you can hear some of the music from the main square because it is so close but yet it is remarkably relaxing especially when you hear the call to prayer from the mosques.
There is a large orange tree in the courtyard which is a roost for lots of birds who may wake you in the morning but I quite liked the sound of them chirping away to each other, the beds were super comfy with lovely deep mattraces and we got a large bottle of water every day at no extra charge, which was a nice touch they'll also make you a mint tea whenever you want one. The wi-fi was good too.
All in all, a fantastic hotel, brilliant location, wonderfull staff. We will be back, thanks again.
