... get on that vino sharon. I despair... Touch down! And it's thunderstorming....for like 10 mins of downpour. Met Lara who had to wait while my passport controller went for a cheeky slash and a mint tea, holding up the line for a good 30 mins. Shared a taxi to the place jemaa el fna, met a helpful young laddo who took us to the road....who also asked for a tip, ...
... the Riad didn't lose it's Moroccan themings, just created a more modern atmosphere. We were escorted to level four for pre-dinner drinks and canapes. 4 levels is about the higest building you will find in the old city so as you can imagine the views are breath taking. We settle in for Margaritas and the sunset and absorb the magic of the skyline. As darkness falls we are invited back downstairs to the dining room where 5 courses of AMAZING is served. ...
... a palace that has been turned into a museum. True to Moroccan style it wasn’t much but high walls on the outside but once inside the courtyards and details inside the rooms were very impressive. It had a selection of doors, jewellery, pottery, carpet, weapons and woodwork. Later in the afternoon we had a bit of rain (was quite surprising actually!) but it cooled the weather down a bit which I appreciated. When it stopped ...
... you for money one way or another...this is what we were told was all of Marrakech. Not quite so true. We always try and keep an open mind and form opinions for ourselves .... You never know how much someone else has traveled, who they are as people or if other issues were at play. Here is what we realized for ourselves: This Berber city, is the hub between the Sahara, the Atlas mountains and the anti-atlas. As Old as 1062, it's like stepping back in time. Inside the medina walls are ...
... sitting around waiting today, he is desperate for a walk. We hear the sounds of people downstairs and go down to say hello. Felip, the photography teacher and Luke, the painting teacher, introduce themselves. We are going to get organized, they say and gather for lunch at 12.30. Bruce says OK we're going for a walk. I try to smooth, we need to stretch our legs and get our bearings. Bruce is feeling frustrated by the delays, so unlike his usual easy going self. We head out into ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Les Jardins de La Koutoubia Marrakech
We stayed at the hotel for a long weekend in February and had a fantastic time
hotel maravilloso situado en el centro de la medina, justo al lado de la plaza más famosa de la ciudad. Servicio muy bueno (limpiaban la habitación dos o tres veces al día) con un desayuno completísimo. Ninguna pega
Voici notre expérience : emplacement idéal dans la medina et à moins de 100 mètres de la place Djema...parfait. Hotel calme, le patio est un oasis de paix dans la tourmente de la ville, je conseille néanmoins les chambres Patio, cela vaut vraiment le coup car c'est très très calme.le personnel est attentionné et bien au-dessus de la moyenne au Maroc mais bon sachez que vous êtes quand même toujours au Maroc...Note chambre ( 126) tout en longueur avec vue sur la piscine de la chambre, du mini salon et de la salle de bain ( très petite mais suffisante) était très sympa. Le petit déjeuner était plus que correct mais si le personnel semblait un peu dépassé vers 9h30...( mais bon n'oubliez pas que vous êtes en vacances). Plusieurs salons afin de se reposer au calme. 2 restaurants, celui de grillades sur le toit est vraiment top à tous les points de vue...
Good Hotel in a great location.
I can't understand the comments of the previous reviewer as my Wife and I were there on the date of his review. Great location on the edge of the Medina. The street noise never bothered us -however the summons to prayer from the Mosques was somewhat intrusive at five in the morning. Our standard room was spotlessly clean and everything worked although I agree that the bath took a long time to fill.
We ate in twice - food fine served by courteous and friendly staff.
The only real problem was with reception. We asked them to book at a nearby restaurant which turned out to be fully booked. They never told us and we had to make an embarrassing withdrawal from the restaurant. Overall, a very good hotel in a great position and a welcome oasis away from the city.
My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights in March 2006. We were booked for 7 nights but had to return home early due to my wife taking ill (no fault of the hotel or Morocco).
The only possitive thing to be said is that the hotel is ideally located for a visit to the old city. It was probably an excellent hotel many years ago, but now has had its best times.
Like the other reviews posted for this hotel, we have to agree and say that this hotel is truly wonderful. We stayed for a week in July 2005 (very very hot!) for a short honeymoon break right after our wedding and because we were honeymooners, they gave us a complimentary upgrade to a large room overlooking the pool/courtyard, plus a lovely fruit basket to welcome gift.
The hotel is beautifully designed but that is the only positive thing I can say about it.
We have recently returned from 7 days at this hotel and were extremely impressed. It is a calm oasis in the midst of the bedlam that characterises Marrakech. Situated only two minutes away from the Koutoubia mosque and the Square, it is ideally placed to explore the city. However this central location means that you are woken in the early hours by the first call to prayer from the mosque!
An absolutely stunning hotel. A great place to stay if you're looking for culture. The rooms are amazing and on the whole the hotel is very beautiful. Not a place for families, nothing for children to do and no entertainment. It's just a heavenly retreat
