    Historical Traveler Reviews ibis Marrakech Centre Gare

    Good value 3 stars, with pleasant garden and pool

    from

    Me, my wife and our 8 years son paid about 50 Eur for one night. Like all the Ibis in Morocco, it's very good value, even more in Marrakech, where a search on the web leads you to the sensation that Marrakech is a relatively expensive site.

    Although it's not a big hotel, without much amenities and not much space on the rooms, it seemed a very nice place to stay for a couple of days. It has a nice garden and swimming pool. It's located near an important train station (they building a newer one nearby), not far from the center, although it's not in any of the main touritic zones of the town.

    Interestingly, by the swimming pool you get the sensation that it is a beach hotel.

    A note for those families wanting their young children to sleep in the room: they don't pay but they also have no extra beds - they have to sleep on a mattress on the floor.

    Rogue bar bills

    from

    The Ibis Hotel is a good base to explore Marrakech. The swimming pool and gaden are great for shelter from the heat. The rooms are small and it would not be advisable to stay at the Ibis for a long period as it could feel very cramped. We were a large party of ten staying for 3 days and ended up with a lot of rogue bar bills. The bar bills had forged signatures. These were taken off our bill very promptly by the reception staff..it felt that they have had to do this before.

    A reasonable place to stay..but check your bills very carefully.

    Très bien

    from

    C'est un bel hôtel. Les chambres sont simples mais parfaites pour l'utilisation qu'on en fait. La salle de bain et la douche sont géniales. L'hôtel est un peu éloigné du centre principal (ancienne médina) mais ce n'est pas un problème.

    Bien mais vérifiez votre facture

    from

    Un endroit agréable, avec des installations propres et de qualité, une belle piscine ainsi que de bons restaurants (petit-déjeuner impressionnant, thé à la menthe en option). Le seul problème a été l'apparition de notes de bar suspectes sur les factures des chambres mais elles ont été annulées grâce au personnel serviable qui parle anglais. Pour aller en ville à environ 2,5 km, un taxi prendra entre 40 et 50 dirhams.

    Fine, but it could be anywhere

    from

    We had one night in this hotel after returning from a four-day trip to Essauoira where we stayed in the wonderful Riad Mimouna. Before we left for Essaouira, we were staying in the delightful Dar Anika so this hotel was back to basics. I have no complaints about the hotel, you pay for what you get and at 23 GBP we were very happy; you can do Marrakech very cheaply these days.

    The only thing I do have to say about the hotel that might be deemed negative is its location. It is wonderfully situated for the train and Supratours bus to and from Essaouira, but it is on a main road and therefore very noisy. Not only that, look out of the window and you could be anywhere. The only telltale signs where pink buildings and the 39-degree heat!

    We didn't have an evening meal but opted instead for the panini which was great complete with fries and salad.

    Very nice

    from

    This is a nice hotel. The rooms are basic but perfect for what is needed. Great shower and bathroom. The location is a bit far out of the main centre (old Medina) but it is not a problem.

    Nice, but watch the bill

    from

    Pleasant place to stay, with good clean facilities, nice pool and good eating areas - impressive breakfast with option of mint tea.

    Only problem was the appearance of rogue bar bills on the room invoices, but these were soon deleted by the helpful (English-speaking) staff.

    About one and a half miles to town, for which grand taxis charge 40-50 dirhams.

    The Ibis Hotel

    from

    On my second visit to Marrakech I stayed at the Ibis Hotel. It had been recommended to me by a moroccan professor, a colleague's family member.

    With only three stars I found the whole atmosphere much more friendly and enjoyble than in my previous higher rated Hotel.

    The staff did not show any racism towards my moroccan boyfriend (as seen in other local hotels and clubs, I am afraid)and even kept some cakes I had been offered in their fridge!

    The hotel is clean and the buffet well stocked even for a vegetarian like myself.

    The swimming pool and garden are lovely kept with the opportunity to 'dyne al fresco' and the service is excellent.

    Well position next to the train station with taxis available outside 24 hours a day.

    Within a few minutes from the town centre.

    I recommend it without any reserve expecially for the value for money.

    Have a great one!

    A good value budget hotel

    from

    We stayed here for two nights on way to Essaouira and one night on return. We thought it good value for the small amount we paid.

    The hotel is next to train station and Supratours bus stop.

    The rooms are small but are en suite and many face the pretty garden/pool area.

    The rooms are well insulated from outside noise.

    Breakfast is basic but the coffee is good.

    We found the staff helpful and saved us money on taxi to airport.

    This is a budget hotel but I think it is worth considering if you just want to get out ,see the sights and move on.

    Boring and bland

    from

    Right beside the railway station, nice pool and garden but unhelpful staff and anonymous, unimpressive rooms. Stay in a riad in the Medina for more character and half the price.

    ... awaits. As there is a road blocked off we have to transfer our bags to an old man (he was at least 80) who wheelbarrows them along. He did get rather cheeky asking for a lot of money at the end. At least he didn't keel over - I'd feel terrible. We head out for dinner on a rooftop over Marrakech ahead of our departure the following day.

    What would be the point, you say, in going to Morocco and buying spices without whipping up a feast in ...

    How Do They Find These Places

    After two nights in Zagora, we started our way back northwest and ended up again in the seeming middle of nowhere. Our accomodations, the Kasbah Air Ben Damietta, was a wonderful place, run by a French woman; so the cuisine de haute was French - steak!

    We also stopped at the Atlas Movie Studio outside of, here comes that name again, Ouarzazate. Lawrence of Arabia, Cleopatra, and Patton, among other, were filmed, at least in part, here.

    ... High Atlas Mountains providing a curtain of beauty behind them. On recommendations from Mohammed, our tour leader, we joined forces with Donny, the Canadian, and left the relative peace of evening in the new city to join thousands of others in the medina by night. Marrakech has a distinctly Andalucian feel to it, (pr perhaps Andalucia has a Moroccon feel, or perhaps both places have influenced each other over the centuries). With low lying buildings and wide plazas, the new city, at ...

    ... succulents from the collections of the Majorelle Gardens were curious but on the whole, the gardens were disappointing and quite frankly, downright boring. Despite positive reviews from Lonely Planet Guide, in our opinion it was a real tourist rip off and we would not recommend it as a worthwhile site to visit. Dejected tourists packed the gardens, looking as bored as we were. Obviously like us, they had been dropped there by their tour operator ...
