Another good back up in the centre

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 18, 2008

I first stayed here when lo and behold I arrived and telephoning through the list of the places I wanted to stay everything was full! but the Foucauld still had rooms. The price was fine so when I got there I could see why!

This place is a big place - lots of rooms - and with the wide selection of cheapies around the centre this place I guess is lastish on the list - but Ive since stayed back here - as a back up when arrived without prebooking in the evening - and still happy to stay here.

The first time I stayed was 189 dirham for a single in a double room - ensuite, TV, and breakfast (basic continental breakfast - so no great cultural or economic experience here) but the rooms are tiled in modern moroccan style and are clean and comfortable and for the price - good value.

There is an evening buffet advertised that is reputably a good deal - Ive never needed to eat here so havent tried it - but for hotel guests the price of 60 dirham is good value as well. Dont remember how much more they charge if not a hotel guest but it is open to outside customers.

The second time when arrived here late one evening I had to have a room up on the roof which was a triple (the 'hot' water was lukewarm up there) but was able to have the room without breakfast so only paid 165 dirham. The prices are higher than Hotel Ali - which is also a hotel with many rooms and historically the Mecca for budget travellers and backpackers - but Foucould has a better standard and more reliably better standard (the first time I stayed in Hotel Ali my room was great but when booking in advance my preferences are elsewhere as per my other accommodation tips).

Since stayed here again February 2010 as parking is easier with a couple of large carparks a few minutes walk in the streets behind - the price for just a single has gone up to 250 dirham with breakfast or 220 without breakfast - was a bit more expensive than I was wanting and couldnt haggle any discount for being a previous customer or for my advertising here on VT..but it was late and I needed a bed a bit more upmarket than the usual el cheapo Hotel La Gazelle across the road (or they were full?).

Unique Quality: As they have so many rooms they tend to be the last in the area to become totally booked out -so fairly reliable to get a room here when none available elsewhere - at a lower price

Directions: across the road from the park and entrance into the Djma Elfnaa - the bus from the airport stops just outside

Hotel Foucauld is spot on. Even if they say they are full they normally find a room somewhere. It's the tardis of hotels. ;)
location is great, 2 mins from Djema el fnaa. Not riad style though so no courtyard, but you'll be well looked after, although i wouldn't bother eating there. Too many other nice restaurants to explore.

Unique Quality: Safe for solo female travellers

Directions: Opposite bus stops at Djema el Fna

Hotel de Foucauld

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 15, 2007

We phoned ahead from somewhere on the Tizi n’ Tichka drive to reserve a place in Marrakech as we were worried there would be huge crowds for Easter. The first two places we tried were full up but we managed to reserve a place in Hotel de Foucauld, which is in a great location at Place de Foucauld, very near Djemma el Fna.

We had to book half board for 500 Dirhams which was quite expensive but as we were arriving in the city late, it suited us fine. There was no option to take only the room. We had a quiet en-suite double room, which overlooked a quiet courtyard.

A buffet supper and breakfast was included in the price. There are cheaper places in Marrakech as we found a few days later but Hotel de Foucauld, overall, is a reasonable value mid range hotel in an excellent location. Don’t miss the views from the rooftop terrace. You’ll have an excellent view of Place de Foucauld and of the Koutoubia Mosque

Directions: Opposite Place de Foucauld
