Today was a bit of a wash as it mainly consisted of waiting around for the overnight train to Tangier. Check out at our Riad was 11am so we hung around in the common area for a couple of hours until we got hungry and decided to leave in search of food. As the main square was practically on the way to the train station we decided to strap on our bags and stop there for lunch. It was a cheap meal of chicken shawarma and chips where despite ...

We hauled our way up through the dry acidic landscape. Huge grey blue river boulders rested where the water or ice had left them. A small cafe, of plastic patio chairs, greeted us at the top of the pass. The backdrop was huge, vast grey brown mountains, peppered with small quilts of houses and snow. The stroll down was fast as ...
Day 228 Day totals: 10 hrs, 12.9 kms At the last minute I manage to squeeze in another stop on Marrakech on my way from Agadir to Casablanca in order to finish that last 13 km stretch from Asni to Tahanaout. Not quite as enjoyable as my group hike, as my backpack rips open and I have to sort of carry it under my arm the who way (I manage to find a tailor in Marrakech to fix in--in time for my Big Trip ...
... finally, a nice adventure to top it all off: a long, rickety suspension bridge across a wide stretch of rocky streambed. Basically the bridge is 2 cables with random boards across them and chicken wire underneath to sort of catch you if the boards break--looks fun, and not really dangerous... So we've all got to try it out.
While the others are slowly making their way across the bridge, Sara says she wants to climb to the top of the mountain. Not something ...

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.
