... contradiction: harsh and cruel and unforgiving yet nourishing, symbiotic and ultimately resilient. Our visit here was brief but long enough to flood our imaginations. Her people are generous and warm but, like so many of us, deeply stained by a narrative of plunder and oppression. Her land is open and wild, at times bordering on the mythological. Her abundance of life in incomprehensible. Unlike any ...

Craft brewers pull pints of cold lager and local vintners pour glasses Sauvignon blanc. The solo musician loops djembe beats below the primal drone of the dijereedoo. The crowd bounces to the rhythm. We venture south to the Cape of Good Hope located at the most south westerly point of Africa. Here the basal shale mountains ...

The square is filled with snake charmers, musicians, acrobats, fire jugglers, women offering henna and stalls selling the most beautiful fresh orange juice. If you visit the market in the evening you can also overhear the storytellers and watch the magicians. If you wind through the main bazaar into the souks you will find everything, from leather to carpets, lanterns and more ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Ryad Mogador Hotel Marrakech
Das Ryad Mogador Hotel liegt genau vor dem Bab Doukala Tor der Altstadt von Marrakesch. Von einigen Zimmern hat man einen schönen Blick über die Stadt mit dem Atlasgebirge dahinter, und alle Zimmer haben einen kleinen Balkon. Das Hotel hat 3 Sterne, was nach marokkanischem Standard korrekt ist; die Zimmer sind modern, jedoch ohne Teppich (ich glaube, das ist meistens so in Marokko). Die Größe der Zimmer war normal nach euroäischem Standard, und das Frühstück ganz gut mit einem breiten Angebot von Speisen. Auf der hoteleigenen Website sieht das Hotel allerdings protziger aus, als es ist.
Wife and I stayed here in June, originally only for 4 nights but after my accident this was extended to 14 nights. Most of the previous comments regarding poor quality we agree with. Reception staff generally unhelpful but this may in part have been due to language dificulties. Breakfast was poorest I have ever come across. Rooms were tatty, eg curtains with cigarette burns, rotten wood work. Public areas like corridors had a constant damp fishy smell.
I stayed at the Ryad Mogador in June 06 and after staying in a superb hotel in Agadir, the Mogador hotel was a real letdown. Reception staff were unhelpful and were unable to give out tourist info or even supply us with a map of the city. Despite the hotel only being fairly new, in our room the furniture was already scuffed and looked shabby. Overall the room, as well as the rest of the hotel looked badly finished off. Also sound proofing wasn't brilliant and the TV could be heard in the room above us. The ensuite itself was poor with mildew all over the bathroom tiles and at one point we couldn't get water to come out of any of the taps. The worst part of the hotel was probably breakfast. The breakfast food was stale and the dining room stank of fish. The dining area was also situated above a supermarket and actually had escalators going down into the supermarket. The dining room staff were unfriendly and unlike in our other hotel in Morocco, we had no warm welcoming from them. I know that the hotel is only a 3 star but I've stayed in hotels and hostels with lower rating than this and had a much better stay. The only good point about the hotel is that it's fairly central and convenient for the medina.
We stayed at this hotel for the first 3 nights of our trip, as the Riad we had set our hearts on was booked up and this hotel looked ok and more importantly was a cheap option.
Well after reading some of the reviews on this site, my boyfriend, his mother and I were all a bit nervous as to what to expect when we got there.
We stayed at the Ryad Mogador (near bab doukala) in march 2006. Overall we found the hotel to be fine - about 23 pounds a night for bed+breakfast for 2 of us. The hotel and room were very clean although there was a slight smell on the corridor. The staff were friendly and the restaurant itself was excellent value with very good food -menu was 95DH for 3 courses. I never eat hotel food in Marrakech but i was tired so decided to try it and it was all very good indeed. Breakfasts were buffet-style and fine too
I would not recommend this hotel, only good thing was its location.
Stayed here during the Marrakech Film Festival when every other hotel was chock-a-block and/or charging exorbitant rates, but we secured a twin room here for 260 Dirhams/barely US $50 per night. The location's fine at the edge of the city walls of the Medina, but on a busy roundabout which doesn't let up even at night. Yes the rooms are small and functional but the windows open and the bathroom facilities worked.
The Ryad Mogador Hotel is located right outside the Bab Doukala Gate of Old Marrakesh. Some of the rooms have pretty views of the city with the Atlas Mountain behind them, and all the rooms have small balconies. The hotel is rated 3 stars, which is accurate for Moroccan standards, the rooms are modern, but have no carpeting (I think this is common in Morocco). The size was normal by European standars, and the breakfast was pretty good, with a diverse sample of available dishes. The website does make the hotel look more swanky than it really is though.
I will not return to this hotel!!
This hotel is in an ideal location - its only 30 mins walk from the main square. The walk from the hotel to the square is a very interesting one. You walk through a market street.
From the outside the hotel looked lovely but looks are often deceptive! My main complaint about this hotel was the fact that here was an awful stench on the 2nd and 3rd floor. The place was unclean, the staff were unhelpful and abrupt and the food was the worst I experienced whilst in Morocco. I stayed in a number of budget hotels over my 8 days in Morocco and all except this one were spotlessly clean.
I will go back to Marrakesh (great people and amazing place) but certainly not to this hotel.
