Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Amine Marrakech
Pasé un tiempo estupendo
Después de haber leído las críticas estuvimos un poco nerviosos al llegar, pero tuvimos un tiempo fantástico en este hotel. Las habitaciones eran básicas, pero la ropa de cama estaba limpia, y había suficiente agua caliente. El área de la piscina era estupenda con suficientes tumbonas, y el Hamman y el masaje fue estupendo y de una relación calidad precio excelente. El entretenimiento nocturno terminaba a las 11 p.m., así que éste es un lugar perfecto para una noche de sueño sin interrupción. La comida estuvo fina, el personal muy amable, y se esforzó para hablar inglés. Ciertamente nos dimos a entender. Este no es un hotel de cuatro estrellas según el estándar europeo, pero fue una relación calidad precio excelente, y me volvería a hospedar allí.
Un hotel turístico bueno, limpio y básico
Pasamos 5 noches en este hotel. Las habitaciones tenían suelos de azulejo, los cuales mantenían limpios. Las sábanas de la cama siempre estaban limpias. Habían toallas frescas cada día. El personal siempre fue amable, y hablaba buen inglés. Habían muchos turistas franceses hospedándose allí. Un par de noches el entretenimiento se pasó un poquito de la media noche, lo cual no le agrada a todo el mundo. El desayuno estuvo bueno con una bonita variedad. La cena estuvo buena pero un poco cara para las porciones. ¡Generalmente es un hotel bueno para viajeros con presupuesto que no están acostumbrados a hospedarse en hoteles ingleses de 5 estrellas!
we booked hotel as a family of 4, the positive sides and there was a few, the pool was excellent, plenty of chairs and towels and you always seemed to have space. The evening meal buffet nice and varied (lamb and chicken dishes and an abundant of salads) however this was all tempered by the level of service we received, which I thought was poor at best, the pool side meals were over priced and the drinks prices varied from day to day for the same drink. (tip: a good little kebab type shop next door, fed four people at lunch time kebabs and salad, drinks for 100 dhs) The staff were rude and seemed to jabber in french and made no effort to respond to your issues.
sheets could have been changed more frequently, ran out of towels towards end of holiday and the a/c did not work properly. and it was hot the week we were there. would I go again , no I wouldn't (in fact we came home early) , too far from the centre, (although a 3 dhs bus ride will get you there No1 bus goes every 15 mins, be cautious of the free ride to the water park, they will take you there, but the return journey terminates at another hotel.)
Wonderful hotel. After reading some reviews I was quite surprised to find this lovely hotel to be neat and clean. The price also included a large breakfast buffet, which had wonderful fruits, mawais (like crepes), breads, jams, oatmeals and grits .. etc.
I had a lovely lower level room, that was neat, clean and had a nice foliage patio, and the entrance looked out onto a beautiful foliage court yard with lovely tables and waterfall.
The staff were wonderful, my towels were abundant --soap was a bit waxy, but hey, I was in Morocco... only thing, a/c could have been more powerful and tv could have had English speaking channels, but otherwise the pool was beautiful and kept clean. Nice thick towels and lots of seating.
The pool restaurant had wonderful meals, salads, paninis, etc. The dinner buffet was adequate but $12.99 price was not bad.
Just around the corner was a wonderful cafe next to the cyber. they had great panini and salads for a really inexpensive price and cyber was 6 drh an hr .. what could be better.
Out of town but good value
We were curious how our stay would be, not just after reading some previous reviews on this hotel, but on asking some Moroccans they ALL were apprehensive for us and said it was not good!
Well I really don't know what was so bad about it unless they have dramatically improved recently. We found the hotel to be large, clean and satisfactory for our stay. We had stayed in a riad-like hotel for a week and moved here for 3 days to just spend by the pool. Other guests were French, English and international.
The pros: reception speaks English, the rooms were comfortable, room had a balcony with chairs and table with nice view, cleaned daily with fresh towels, breakfast was plenty of choice buffet style, (ranging from fresh fruit and salad, bread and pastries, pancakes but no meat), pool is spacious with rest/bar, 2 restaurants v close-by (1expensive, 1 cheap), a kiosk selling water, drinks tobacco just outside hotel
The cons: is situated out of town in Semlalia (north of Gueliz). This is 15/20 mins walk to Gueliz on dimly lit, uneven pavements, or 20mins by taxi to Jemaa El Fna. There are few places of interest nearby or walking distance.
It has an impersonal atmosphere. Due to its size (200 rooms) and it mostly unused it has the effect of large student accomodation during summer holidays.
The decor really needs a complete modernisation. Bless!
The pool has organised games for children which can be pro or con depending on your point of view. We didn't mind it, it was neither too noisy or disruptive to other pool users and I personally enjoyed seeing them have fun themselves.
In general we enjoyed it here. However if this was our first hotel in Morocco it could have been daunting and an effort to do as much as we did. We would also have made more use of our holiday rep from lastminute.com, who was friendly and helpful. We had a relaxing few days after our sightseeing and considering the price, was good value for money.
A good clean, ( basic ) tourist hotel.
Spent 5 nights in this hotel . Rooms had tiled floors which were kept clean. bed linen always clean . fresh towels every day . staff always friendly and DID speak good english. Alot of french tourists staying here .On a couple of evenings the entertainment went on a bit ( past midnight ) , which isn`t everyones cup of tea !
breakfast was good , with a nice variety. Evening food ok , a bit pricey for what you get ?
Generally a good hotel for budget travellers who aren`t used to staying in english 5 star hotels !
Had a great Time
After reading reviews we were a bit nervous upon arrival but we had a great time at this Hotel. The rooms were basic but the linen was clean and there was plenty of hot water. The pool area was great with plenty of sunbeds and the Hamman and massage was superb and excellent value for money. The evening entertainment finished at 11pm so this is a perfect place for an undisturbed nights sleep. The food was fine and the staff very friendly and did their best to speak english - we certainly made ourselves understood. This is not a **** by European standards but was excellent value for money and I would certainly stay there again.
Amine Hotel Not For the Faint Hearted
My husband and I stayed in the Hotel Amine for a week. Our reservation had been lost but the night staff managed to find us a room. The Hotel is old (think 70's without any work done to it) and not particulary clean. The bathroom was awful and dirty. The carpet in the room was dirty and was not hoovered during the week we were there. Also, the sheets were not changed during our stay and the pillows were lumpy and old. The breakfast was ok if you like pastries and weird white gloopy stuff. The pool was large and looked clean enough but full of screaming children. Don't stay at this Hotel if you want peace and quiet poolside. The pool cafe was badly run and pretty chaotic. We never ate in the restaurant because you had to book the day before via the reception but it looked well patronised. Most guests are French (think Spain full of English) and the staff can't speak English so difficult to communicate if you want anything more complicated than a taxi.
Not a four star hotel
Hotels in Morocco are generally ridiculously overrated, and over-priced, too, considering the average standard of life and salaries of employees. The Amine is given 4 stars, but deserves 2 stars at most for the shabby, small rooms and the restaurant. Everything lacks elegance.
At 60 Euro, this hotel is one of the affordable ones in Marrakech, though. Its place a bit outside is an advantage, as car- and bike pollution is becoming unbearable in this town that formerly was a good place to cure asthma. Not now anymore, and not even in the relatively calm Semilalia of hotel Amine. Even here, there is a pungent stench of exhaust gas in the garden, unless it is windy.
For these reasons, Marrakech is not a town anymore for a relaxing holiday. Nor would this oldish hotel convey a cosy feeling to make up for the bad air and the notorious harassment and over-charging that tourists have to suffer when they venture into town.
Above Average Stay at Hotel Amine
We stayed here in April 2004. Pleasant, tranquil hotel based on the outskirts of Marrakech. The bedrooms were large and clean and came with television(mainly european channels) and telephone. Hotel advertised as having a room service but after calling the extension several times throughout our stay and never getting a reply, it looks as if this service is not in action.
Hotel resturant is fine ( if a little bit 1970's) and the food was adequate. Reception area, bar and swimmng pool were clean and welcoming. Staff mainly speak French and have little knowledge of English ( like much of Marrakech) so be prepared to brush up on your french phrases before booking a holiday here. All in all a pleasant hotel surrounded by beautiful palms and flowers and good value for money.
