Wonderful gardens and restaurants

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 21, 2014

We didn't lodge at La Mamounia, but we enjoyed walking by its impressive gardens and having a light dinner in its elegant café.

We make a quite stroll on its impressive huge garden, by its pool, sitting down on a bench and listening just the birds and the call to pray coming from the Koutoubia's minaret

We decided to have an informal dinner in its cafe, very pleasant, but very expensive as well. We had a sandwich and a British tea, with a very slowly service, to be honest, but they invited us for the tea because they missed our sandwiches.

You have to tell your purpose in the security control and the guards let you go in.

Unique Quality: It's a classical luxury hotel, full of history with guest such as Winston Churchill, Charles de Gaulle, Charles Chaplin, Édif Piaf... Also some movies have been recorded in here, like "The man who knew too much", from Alfred Hitchcock.

There are some excellent restaurants, such as the Moroccan food one, but also the cafe, with live music.

Anyway, one of the main point to visit are the huge gardens, with more than 100 years, being part of an ancient palace. It's very nice to walk by in here without listening all the noise of the street

Directions: Next to the city walls, close to the Koutoubia mosque.

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 written on April 30, 2007

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

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 10, 2006

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:

Like a 1000 and 1 night Royal Palace

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)

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!!

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.
