We begun the day with a visit to the Saadian tombs, sealed up for centuries, these tombs were only rediscovered in 1917, blazoned with magnificently decorated stucco tiles, Arabic script and elaborate wood carvings, several hundred graves were found within the walled tomb area when aerial photos identified something existed in the over grown gardens. We also visited Bahia Palace an equally stunning building, built in the ...
... goats was also on top of the house, close to the kitchen, so easy to access for milk (and presumably meat from time to time). All of these old villages and kasbahs are constructed from clay, which over time returns to dust. It was interesting to find that they really are quite cool inside, as the temperatures outdoors rise to the mid 40's in summer.

... the train station. Not surprisingly this pace rendered us near crippled 6 days later when we took it in turns to moan like an elderly couple about our pains and agonies!
By arriving to Tanger Med (an hour out of town) we'd arrived slowly, gazing with curiosity at the bland rocky landscape and reassured by the company of other western travelers, a couple from Canada and Finland and a fellow Brit, Grace, who was off to Tetouan for Arabic lessons before ...
January 11th to March 9th, 2014 Af-ri-ca! The three syllables are easily reduced to a cliché. An older generation formed their first impression of the dark continent watching buffed American actor Johnny Weissmuller swinging from limb to limb hollering out his supremacy as Lord of the Jungle. Younger people were more likely introduced to her through an animated Disney character with a thick mane ...
Let's get the important things out of the way first. They have supposedly located our bags! Jill's bag is currently at the airport and mine is on a flight that arrives at 8:30. Other than hell, I have no idea from where this flight is coming or why our bags are not together. I am not thankful for their trip until I have my bag in my hands! Today we went to the Jardin Majorelle, which was ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hivernage Hotel & Spa Marrakech
We were recommended by Villa des Orangers because they were full-up. Being our first time to Marrakech we opted for the hotel car to collect us from the airport to avoid any hassle. (20 euro) Needless to say we got a local taxi to take us back @ 10 euros!
We have just spent 4 nights in the Hivernage hotel and spa in Marrakesh. It was very good value for money and in a very good location with the Medina a short walk away, although this did involve A level road crossing skills and nerves of steel to go with it.
The Hivernage is on a busy road and a short way from a very busy, large roundabout with a 5 way intersection and lots of traffic, hence there is a lot of traffic noise at this hotel.
Very Pleasant Experience
I read some of the negative views about this hotel prior to staying there and was quite concerned. Our experience, however, was very positive. This hotel is in an excellent location. The concierage was very friendly and helpful as were others at the desk. We liked the fitness center and the breakfast was also very good. The experience at the spa was very average but the prices were reasonable for services. My complaints are that (1) from our room, we heard a lot of noises above us and (2) that the room temperature was very hot and stuffy despite our efforts to change the thermometer.
An excellent choice in the heart of Marrakesh. The rooms are spacious and contrary to previous reviews, the breakfast is really good. The service is good but spotty should you not speak French...but that is almost everywhere in Marrakesh. The rooms are really clean and a great value for money.
This hotel is beautiful. We discovered it by chance, by visiting its cafe on the bottom floor which specialises in croissants and treats, along with great coffee. And we ended up checking in at the L'Hivernage which is a gorgeous new hotel in the Quartier Hivernage in Marrakech, charging around the same price as the old tired run-down hotels of the area.
On the day we checked in we distrusted earlier TripAdvisor reviews. The front desk were charming and helpful, so were the porters, then and throughout our stay. The standard room was well designed with a balcony, an excellent bathroom with bath and shower plus bidet and toilet in an entirely separate spacious self contained room. Houskeeping was first class.
I booked for 2 days in this boutique hotel. The receptionist was really kind. She proposed to show me the different types of rooms in order to make the good choice. Finaly she advices me to choose the standard room wich was the cheapest one.
This is not a 5 star hotel. We planned to stay for 9 nights at the end of October but checked out after 4.
Hivernage Hotel and Spa good hotel
Just returned from 5 nights at the Hivernage Hotel and Spa which was a very nice, friendly newer hotel to stay. Not a Riad but not as big and impersonal as the large internation hotels. Excellent room with own Haman, spa with reasonable treatment packages, very nice French style pavement cafe selling great pastries. Seemed authentic at a high standard and more traditional than the international hotels, yet still 4 or 5 star.Only 10 minute walk from the main square. Nice view of Koutoubia Mosque. We paid approx. £100/room/night inc. good breakfast.
Only complaint is the swimming pool was freezing, warm enough outside to sunbath but not to swim. Used Hydro pool in spa instead.
We booked through Hotels.com and all went smoothly.
