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 ...
... Thrones. One of the locals, who had been a film extra in Gladiator, invited us into his home, and showed us his film id tag and photos of the set and himself at the time. What was more interesting though, was to see his home and how he lived. The house was spread over several floors, with the kitchen being up high and close to the terrace on top of the house. His pen of 4 ...
... in the sunshine. Donkeys plodded across the golden sand and we bobbed alongside balloon sellers, cheap cigarette stalls and popcorn trolleys. Of course we walked! It wasn't until our return to Tangiers that we discovered just how cheap the metered blue taxi's are, 80p to cross town! We located the station and secured couchette beds on the night train. We then enthusiastically walked all the way to the old town, most the way round it and all the way back ...
... we have explored, Africa is a place where the beauty of the natural world overwhelms, catches you in the throat. You enter a transformative space that fosters an awareness of your astonishing insignificance on the planet. There is a touch of melancholy as we jet north. However, we are extremely fortunate, unfairly privileged and immensely grateful to have glimpsed the southern reaches of this magnificent ...
... be all alone in this big riad left to listen to the echo of my voice throughout the rooms. Now one thing I can't do is isolation, if I'm in a new country what I need the most is to get out, explore and learn about the customs, culture, and normal way of life in order to enjoy myself and here I cannot do that. I need to experience. We will see how today goes at the schools and I will try my best to enjoy but no guarantees I will. Just finished my first morning with ...

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
