I booked and paid in full through hotels.com and when i got here with my child, it was closed down. After pounding on the door for ages, a man came out and just said, sorry we're closed for 2 months. I showed him my confirmation and receipt but he said there's nothing he can do.

My room was big enough with 3 beds but dangerous to health and safety as wires from the walls are out and damaged, the ceiling in the bathroom is full with damp and rain water drops onto the toilet lid. The tiles on the floor are broken. Rooms are noisy as there is no curfew

We booked Riad Amssaffah online, receptionist (who was apparently just helping out that night for his friend) wanted 10EUR more than online (for city taxes), didnt feel ok to pay, so left that for morning. Got room without functional A/C, but warm shower working. Quiet place

I had a confirmation for my booking at this accommodation including notification of late night arrival. When I got there I was told the manager made a mistake and left the bookings open. They were full. It was midnight in the maze of the medina in Marrakesh. They would not call

We visited Marrakech last year so had a rough idea what to expect. This was no-where near as nice as the Rhiad we stopped in last year, which was absolutely brilliant. This was run-down and filthy. The first thing we were asked for were Taxes - these aren't included in your

It's right in the middle of lots of little alleys and I defy anyone to try to find it straight away. The best thing to do is to get a cab from the airport. When you walk out of the airport, cross the road and walk through to the end of the car park (you'll be approached by lots of cab drivers on the way just tell them you have a cab already). At the end of the car park there'll be lots of cab drivers, they'll approach you and tell them you want to go to Riad Amassafah. They'll tell you 200 D but offer them 60. They'll laugh, but keep walking until you get them to agree 80 - 100. Stand you ground - it'll be a bit unnerving, but that's part of the experience and we got one for 80. They guy said he'd drop us 100m away, but we chatted to him in French during our journey and he drove us straight there. We gave him 100 D in the end. I read somewhere that there is a little fountain down the road from the rid, but it's more a water tap in the street. Stand with that on your right, look up the road and go through the first arch you see. The riad is the door on your right. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did - it is real Mrrakech. BTW: there is a bureau d'exchange on the walk to the main square from the riad and it's commission-free. Last month, I got nearly 14 D for £1, which was about 4D more that I got at Gatwick airport. Eliza will help you find it.

All the best,

Touristenabgabe ist was in Deutschland Kurtaxe genannt wird. Ich weiß es nicht mehr genau, war nicht viel aber wurde einem erst dort gesagt und nicht beim Reiseveranstallter. Das Hotel war sauber, das Personal sehr nett. Keine sichtbaren Schimmelspuren bei unserem Zimmer zu sehen, Das Gebäude ist aus dem 17 Jahrhundert, Wurde modernisiert ohne den Stil zu verändern, also Fenster und Türen im Original-zustand und nicht Thermo oder abgedichtet. Wer ein modernes Hotel sucht sollte außerhalb der Medina wohnen da gibt es genug moderne Hotels renommierter Ketten. Wer aber mit historischem Flair und Charme wohnen will kann nicht Kempinski Standard erwarten. Für uns war es ein wunderschöner Urlaub.

Bonjour jean-jacques Je vous déconseille également ce lieu que l'on peut même pas décrire de riad où même d'hôtel le personnel est ignoble sans parler du gérant malhonnête mais en très difficile d'accès pour une personne à mobilité réduite . Le gérant peut même vous répondre qu'il a des chambres adaptées et vous dire le contraire à votre arrivée. Sincèrement annulé votre réservation il y a d'autres riad proche de la place
