Couples hotel

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 17, 2012

After a night at the Transatlantic in Tunis, this place was just what the doctor ordered. Rooms were clean and breakfast on the terrace was great. we came straight here..starting out in Tunis in the morning, flying to Casablanca and then catching the train from the airport to Marrakesh where we arrived in the evening and caught a cab here from the train station.

Unique Quality: The owner is great and asside from sending us to an overpriced dinner/show place the night we arrived I have no complaints as this is a nice hotel full of friendly cats and great staff. They spoke English here so no need for bad French or Spanish. My wife loved the place and my pics may not do it justice

Directions: A shot walk to theDjemma el-Fna

Hotel Le Gallia:History,Charm,And Great Price :)

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 3, 2008

Except for La Moumounia, this is the city's oldest hotel. It opened in 1929 and still cuts it as a charming budget option. Although rooms are dull in comparison to the dancing foliage and bright tiles of the courtyard and terraces -- perfect for a breakfast of Moroccan pancakes -- most have en-suite baths and air-conditioning.

Unique Quality: Clean, conveniently located. Head down Rue Bab Agnaou from Jemaâ el Fna; the Gallia is at the end of a narrow street on the left. A 1929 building with beautifully planted courtyard. Good value for money, so reserve well in advance.

Price:
20Euro for double room

# In-hotel: restaurant.
# Rate includes: Full breakfast
# Credit Cards: MC, V

Directions: The building is near Djemâa el Fna, behind the post office.

Well located, well run hotel with about 24 rooms. An easy walk to the bank machines, internet cafes, the Djemaa el Fna and the souks, but in a quiet cul-de-sac. Quite impersonal desk service -- not the kind of service you'd get from a small riad like the Arahanta, for example -- but reasonably helpful. It's moderate accommodation, reasonably priced at 350dh for two people including a generous breakfast. Ask for the "moroccain" breakfast and you'll be stuffed for the day. Three kinds of delicious pancakes, fresh bread, honey, apricot jam, cafe au lait, and of course wonderful orange juice. Very pleasant service.

Unique Quality: We loved our rooftop room. Just before dawn on our first morning there we were wakened by the call to prayer. We went out onto the roof and heard it echoing from all parts of the city -- I'll never forget it.

The bed was wonderfully comfortable. There were extra towels and pillows, a good-sized closet, a table with a couple of chairs, and reading lights by the bed. Nice big bathroom with bathtub and shower. The room could have used a coat of paint, but I think they were doing them systematically and hadn't quite got that far.

Only thing about the roof top room is that there's a somewhat unpleasant little vent right under the window. But once we realized where the smell was coming from we put a magazine over the vent and that did it. The maid went one better -- she stuffed paper right into it!

The rooftop terrace was just beautiful, with very nice furniture and lots of potted plants. I could easily see sleeping on the roof, as I saw one woman doing, because the chesterfields were wide and looked very comfortable.

Directions: Just south of Djemaa el Fna. They take reservations by fax only, and reply quite promptly.

Best hotel around

Nice old house, the view on the Atlas from the terrace is terrific. Reservations are necessary because the Gallia is almost always booked in advance...

Unique Quality: Hot water, bathtub, for summer: air conditionning and for winter: heating.
A double room with bathromm, including breakfast cost us 360 Dh/US$36
