  • 2,0.Poor

    This is a terrible hotel and Expedia should be ashamed to have it as part of their organization. The concierge is the only positive about this hotel. Otherwise, it is disgusting. The breakfast included antique croissants, which could act as rocks as part of an avalanche. I am pretty sure some dictators of various countries are more friendly than the receptionists. I believe the snake charmers of Medina need to come and play a tune for the receptionists to perhaps cheer them up or an investment into customer service training. The cleaners are nice but are really attempting to either polish a turd or roll it in glitter. NEVER NEVER NEVER book during a new year as they will do you for £100+ per person for a “Gala Dinner” that involves the breakfast staff adding a bow tie to their morning blazers and serving poor food. The majority of guests left part way through the meal, as it cuisine began to replicate a scene from Indiana Jones. Back to the concierge, a good man who booked us two good trips, which allowed us to stay away from Hotel Chems for at least a few hours - god bless you!

    Dirtiest hotel I’ve ever stayed at. I’ve stayed in plenty of 9 to 30 dollar a night Riad’s and cheap hotels all over Morocco and this place was absolutely the worst. Horrible staff, rude and unhelpful. Bed literally had ants crawling on it. The room smelled of raw sewage so bad when we would turn the room fan unit on. The staff refused to move us. So we checked out after our first night of 5 and went to a different hotel. I couldn’t believe the service and dirty conditions of this hotel. Every trip I’ve ever taken to Morocco I’ve always been impressed with the kind people and beautiful facilities. This place should be a last resort, if you can go somewhere else do it!!!!!!!

    We loved how close the hotel was to the main square, however some of the staff were incredibly blunt and unhelpful at times. We asked to have breakfast arranged for an early start (4:45am), having paid for this, we were looking forward to water and fruit at the least, and yet the reception told us to speak to the restaurant staff, who told us this was impossible. A shame really. Booking tickets was also a little difficult and required two people to speak to the front desk separately to get a response!

    Comfortable and good value for money

    The location is just great. The hotel isn't really 4 star but it was comfortable. The breakfast could be better but it was good enough. The hotel is located at the back of Koutoubia mosque but I didn't mind it.

    Nice, but terrible food.

    The breakfast is awful. The place is abundant in oranges but they give you concentrate to drink. But that doesn’t matter, the food is cheap and just awful. And one night there was a huge storm so we stayed in for dinner, again, that was so awful. The room was old but fine, the staff were nice. It’s a great location as well. Just make sure you eat out.

    Lucky hotel to be 4 star

    This hotel declare themselves as 4 Star yet no wifi inside the room, air conditioning not working when Marrakech temp was 35deg C. MUST insist all their hotels to write clearly if Free Wifi "" means including wifi in the rooms or just in the hotel lobby. With the digital age, wifi is important for travellers to be connected for families and business. I will not book any hotels whom do not provide wifi in the rooms.

    The hotel is in hard to reach area with stairs and winding roads. It’s more like a B&B. The host couple was gracious, the staff was friendly and the breakfast was fine. We were disappointed when we reached there as the view did not look like the picture posted on the website.

    The hotel is located near to tourist attraction places in the town. However the staff were unpleasant and uncooperative, the room had a bad smell from the sewage system and AC was not cooling with poor ventilation. There is poor drainage of water in the bathroom. At the time of check in I waited long time in the lobby for my room to be ready, it was ready at 4 pm.
