    The best of the best

    by

    The la Mamounia Hotel, commonly referred to as the Mamounia is a five-star hotel in Morocco. It faces the Atlas mountains and is at the heart of the old city of Marrakech. As the Majorelle Garden, the Koutoubia mosque or the Jemaa el-Fnaa square, this palace is a "mythical" landmark of the city. It is owned by the railways (ONCF), the city of Marrakech and the "caisse des dépôts Moroccain".

    This might be the best hotel in all of Morocco .... luxury at it finest .... We didn't stay here but went inside to have a drink at the bar .... be warned drinks run about $15 US per drink .....

    Rooms run about $400 US a night here ....

    Morocco's most famous hotel

    by

    Hotel Mamounia is one of Marrakech's big attractions and is probably the most famous and luxurious hotel in the country. We hadn't seen it on our first visit to the city, in 2005, so we hoped to visit on our second trip and to walk the gardens, have a drink on the terrace and possibly even see the Churchill suite, where the British Prime Minister stayed during WW2. Churchill described the gardens in Mamounia as “the loveliest spot in the whole world”.

    Unfortunately, the hotel was closed for renovation during our trip so again we missed out. According to one of the guards we spoke to it will remain closed until 2008 at least. We’ll have to come back again someday and see it - maybe when I’m rich enough to afford to stay here.

    Directions: West of the Koutoubia

    Looking For The Luxy-Hotel

    by

    Situated within the 12th century city walls this deluxe hotel has been rightly named many times amongst the top five hotels in the world. Set amidst 17 acres of fragrant flower gardens La Mamounia, since its conception in 1922, has become a byword for elegance and opulence. This is perhaps the reason a host of celebrities and politicians over the years have added their names to the impressive guest list.

    One of the hotel’s most famous and frequent visitors was Winston Churchill. A renowned painter he was often to be seen gathering artistic inspiration from the majestic Atlas Mountains surrounding Marrakech.

    As sumptuous inside as well as out the hotel is an intriguing mixture of Art Deco and traditional Moorish design with its plush carpets together with the ornate marble and wood filigree work. Lavishly refurbished in 1986 and most rooms have been updated again in 2002/3 we know that you won’t be disappointed.

    And because Words can never describe 100% of this Hotel Magic I propose a Slide show tour and virtual 360°pictures From The Mamounia Web site:

    -Facilities
    Five restaurants (Le Marocaine, L'Orangerie, L'Italien, Les Trois Palmiers poolside grill and the Marrakech L'Imperiale gourmet which is formal), four bars (including the famous Churchill Piano Bar and a pool bar), 24hr room service.

    Like a 1000 and 1 night Royal Palace

    by

    Only one night there...:(
    but I suggest everyone is going to Marrakech, to spend at least one night there, even if you are looking for a cheap bed and breakfast, just to try only for one night to live like an old arabic sultan.

    The Hotel is one of the most attractive buildings of Marrakech, so that you can go there only to visit it (like a Museum) during the day.
    At night, you can go in only if you are a guest there.

    Although is really expensive, is worth to be visited.

    Unique Quality: Everything is very special, according to the old arabic art and architecture, as you can see in my pictures.

    Many famous people used to spend here long periods of their life: Winston Churchill, former british premier, when retired went here at the end of his life.

    Directions: Just outside the city centre: you could go to the Jamaa el Fna square on foot, but usually the sun is too hot, so it's better to use a public transport.

    This wonderful hotel is a real legend, probably the best one in north Africa.
    I couldn't afford to stay in, but we went for a drink at one of the bars at night, and also took a walk around the woooonderful gardens.

    Unique Quality: Better go with your best suit, I wasn't allowed to enter long ago, the first time I visited Marrakesh as backpacker!!

    One of the top hotels in Northern Africa

    by

    Marrakesh has some of the best hotels in Morocco and the top end of the Marrakesh hotel is La Mamounia, one of the most famous hotels in the world. It is overwhelmingly decorated in arab style and it is very centrally located, inside the walled city close to the Koutoubia minarett.

    Unique Quality: There are different kinds of rooms and their prices vary according to the comfort they offer and also to the view, the garden vew and the Koutoubia view beeing the most appreciated.

Africa's Best Hotel?

by johnaalex about La Mamounia

Some say La Mamounia is the best hotel in Africa, others add “North” to that title. For my money The Table Bay hotel should hold the title for the continent, but La Mamounia must be best in North Africa. Having said that I have stayed in lower rated hotels where I have had better, more friendly service, but I do not think I have stayed anywhere that has so much style. Numerous celebrities have stayed here, Angelina Jolie (aka Lara Croft) has also recently bedded down here. Famous British guests have included Winston Churchill and, more recently, Ronnie Corbett (of the two Ronnies) and Richard Branson (the world’s most famous “Virgin”). Both of the latter two were there at the same as me.
Of course such luxury does not come cheap, and I have to say that even taking that into consideration the prices are high. The lunch time buffet is good, but at the cost of 30 GBP per head not including any drinks so it should be!
There are a few restaurants in the hotel and from the two I tried (in addition to the buffet) I would say the standard is OK, but not really worth the money. Having said I am not a fan of Moroccan food (at the end of two weeks I was ready to kill for a good vindaloo or steak).
As part of the overall furnishings the drinking glasses in the rooms are engraved with the name of the hotel and these can be purchased in the hotel’s gift shop. At 25 GBP per glass I resisted the offer.
If you can afford it and you want to stay in a fascinating city in grand style, possibly rub shoulders with the richer and famous then La Mamounia must be considered. Art Deco is the main theme, mixed with traditional Moroccan designs. The attention to detail is top class from the monogrammed tea spoons to the massive chandelier in the lobby. The large swimming pool and gardens provide a more than welcome sanctuary from the pandemonium that is central Marrakech.
The rooms are a good size, bigger than most places. The first room I was in was 444 which is about the worse in the hotel but it more than met my expectations. On my second stay I got upgraded to a junior suite, room 409. It did not have a balcony like 444 but I didn’t mind, it was a beautiful room. This was bigger than many “senior” suites I have stayed in. A large bedroom a reasonable sized separate sitting room, both with TV (not there is much for an English man abroad to watch).

Hi, Im not sure of the name but there is a very nice Florist in Guiliz, Just ask and someone will point you in the right direction, There is also a flower market in the same area. I think it is known as the French market ? You can have bouquets made there. You can also order flowers on-line
