    Convenient and Relaxing


    We chose to stay in this hotel based on pictures and reviews from another travel review site. We wanted to stay somewhere that when we woke up, we knew we were in Morocco so we were willing to pay more than we would for a chain. After a crowded and hectic train ride from Casablanca, we were looking forward to relaxing in the hotel for a bit. Upon arriving, we were directed to leave our luggage and enter their bar area where we were served mint tea and a variety of Moroccan pastries. It was just what we needed! The staff throughout our stay were helpful and pleasant and we got our wish with the decor of the rooms. We highly recommend this hotel!

    Luxury in Marrakech


    Staying at the Les Borjs De La Kasbah was a wonderful experience. This boutique hotel is housed in converted traditional Moroccan homes arranged around four patios.
    The rooms are large and beautifully decorated with patterned fabrics and tiled floors with handmade carpets. Rooms have satellite TVs, air conditioning, complimentary wireless internet access, big beds with luxurious sheets, and great bathrooms.

    The staff were pleasant and helpful. Good breakfast (buffet and eggs cooked to order) served in the restaurant or outside in the courtyard. Spa, pool, bar, and restaurant on premises.

    I really liked the location - about 1 km to JEF. It was great to walk home every night strolling through the neighborhood with locals and stopping for some street food.

    Highly recommend the Les Borjs De La Kasbah.

    Directions: The Hotel Les Borjs de la Kasbah is located in the Kasbah quarter of the Medina old town. It is set beside the old city walls and two 'borjs' defensive towers, just 250 metres from the Royal Palace.

More about Les Borjs de la Kasbah

Classy and relaxed, we loved it

by TripAdvisor Member PT2001

We have just come back from a week at Les Borjs de la Kasbah. We absolutely loved it and would definitely recommend it.

The building is in excellent conditions, with one wing (spa-swimming pool) just opened in Spring 2007. The overall impression is of a classy and welcoming environment, with good attention paid to details like rooms decor, furniture, plants etc (even ambient background music in all communal spaces and courtyards).

This is in between a riad and a hotel, so expect a very articulated architectural layout with courtyards, stairs etc as in a proper riad, with the level of service that you normally find in good international hotels. There is even a spa with a small (10m) but very pleasant open air swimming pool.

Our room was clean and spacious, and the standard of room service was definitely up to scratch. The staff couldn't be more helpful and nice, and all of them seemed more than happy to go the extra mile for the guests if necessary.

The restaurant is definitely worth a try. We normally avoid hotels restaurants as they tend to be overpriced and bland, but the chef at Les Borjs de la Kasbah definitely knows his stuff, and we've eaten in quite a few times. The dishes were all well above average, and quite frankly overshadowed most of the other restaurants we tried in Marrakech.

Overall, this is a classy and sophisticated hotel, incredibly quiet and a real haven in the hustle and bustle of the medina.

The hotel is also in a very good location. It is in the Kasbah, so guests have the opportunity to experience the "raw" heart of historic Marrakech, but at the edge of it, in a relatively tranquil area close to the Royal Palace. This makes it easy to direct taxi drivers when going back to the hotel. Taxis are definitely a plus of Marrakech, there's plenty of them around and they're dead cheap (provided that you are prepared to haggle), but the medina is confusing even for taxi drivers, so to be able to give them precise directions to your hotel can be invaluable.

In conclusion, we've had a fantastic time in Marrakech, and this is also thanks to Les Borjs de la Kasbah. Should we decide to return to Marrakech, we would definitely stay there again.

Heaven on Earth

by TripAdvisor Member BeckyWSheffield

Upon arrival, we stepped from a busy street into the peacefulness of the reception area where we were greeted by name and booked in whilst a porter took our bags to our room. The bedroom was very spacious, stunningly decorated and overlooked the main courtyard. The bed was enormous and incredibly comfortable with lovely linen sheets. The large bathroom was wonderfully equipped with a large bath and separate shower. The complimentary toiletries were a delight and the bath milk was a tonic so soak in after a long journey from England. The food at the hotel was a delight. Breakfasts were served in a beautiful courtyard and include a wide variety of tempting foods, including fruit salad, pastries, freshly squeezed orange juice and home made yoghurts. We ate twice in the hotel for evening meals and were very happy with the food, we recommend the tagines! The hotel is laid out so that there are rooms around the central courtyard for guests to use. The swimming pool area of the pool is a lovely place to spend some time when the heat becomes strong during midday. Throughout our stay, the staff were friendly and accommodating and worked hard to ensure that we felt relaxed and enjoyed our stay. Les Borjs de la Kasbah is a tranquil and beautiful hotel in the midst of the hustle and bustle of Marrakech. I have already recommended the hotel to family and friends and hope to return in the not too distant future.

Great Hotel.... shame about Marrakech!

by TripAdvisor Member daedalus1

Really nice hotel with great staff, the food is a little average in the restaurant but I think this is more to do with Morrocan cuisine in general.

We also felt the food and drink (alcoholic) was perhaps a little expensive.

The pool area is very good although with an 18 twin room hotel and only sun loungers for around 12 people there were a few disapointed people. The pool area was our salvation after we got very fed up of the city very quickly.

We would thoroughly recommend the hotel although we would never return to Marrakech.......

Excellent Riad

by TripAdvisor Member tom000

Stayed here on the last day of our Moroccan trip. A very nice place indeed. Rooms are beautifully decorated. Everything is very tasteful.
15 minute walk to the centre. Highly recommended

Fabulous Riad, in a good location

by TripAdvisor Member AJCDoncaster

The hotel was everything we were looking for:- Clean, great location (could walk to Jemma el fna) and very traditional. Our check-in was very relaxing, we were seated in the court yard and given mint tea while we completed our registration cards. We were shown the 2 rooms that had been allocated, but asked if they could be located together and the staff were more than happy to oblige - nothing seemed too much trouble. No lugging of cases was necessary they appeared in the rooms very promptly - I would have no hesitation in recommending this Riad for a stay, the service was 5*. The spa at the hotel deserves a special mention - and a massage should be a must do !! The pool area was great for relaxing, only be warned the water was very cold. Lunch sat around the pool area was a treat from all the hussle and bussle happening in the Kasbah.

We were on b&b and this was fine, continental style but plenty of choice. We did eat in the hotel one evening and the food was excellent - the monk fish was divine !!!

We will definatly return to Marakesh and would book at Les Borjs again.

fabulous time

by TripAdvisor Member lynn.gilmour

just returned from a 3 nights at this property, cannot say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay, the riad was fantastic, the accommodation could not be faulted and the staff were exceptional. Our spa treatments were the best we have ever had and the price more than reasonable. We ate dinner there one evening and the food could not be faulted, there were only our party of three and one other couple in the riad that evening but they still had a full kitchen. Would we return - you bet we would, this trip was a girls weekend away but I cannot wait to return with my husband, the front of house staff made our our travel arrangement s whilst we were there and booked and cancelled arrangements for us without complaint as we requested, anything they recommended was brilliant and it was nice to know that all of the staff knew us by name, we were not asked to officially sign for anything we had from the bar or resturant but our bill was spot on when we received it. My advice is to get in here quick..

Just Wonderful

by TripAdvisor Member Solabaje

Right in the middle of the Old Medina or Old Town, is this very unassuming, tucked away little riad or guesthouse. It is very intimate, only about 16 rooms and the staff is amazing and friendly, they will go out of hteir way to make sure that you are happy! They speak arabic, french and some english. The rooms are quaint and comfortable, and the buffet breakfast is lovely. The also arrange tours to areas outside of Marrakech at reasonable prices. The spa is very reasonable and the staff is amazing. Try the Hammam and massage! It is heavenly. I cant wait to go again!!!!!!!!

Can't wait to go back

by TripAdvisor Member Traveladdict60

Just returned from a one week stay at this amazing 'hotel de charme'. From the moment we made our first enquiry, the hotel staff were unfailingly helpful and polite - something that was a theme throughout our stay.
The hotel is very new and located about a 20 minute walk from the main square - something to be very grateful for as the square (and most of Marrakech) is mad and it was wonderful to return to our little oasis of calm.
The rooms (we had a suite) are spacious and well-appointed (we loved the rose petals on our bed every day!) All rooms have a/c and heating (we went in November and its cold!) The breakfast is fine (omelettes etc are offered as well as an extensive continental option). We ate in the hotel restaurant a few times - the food is good although the restaurant is a bit souless.
The spa is fabulous (great massage) and the pool area is very nice (not sure the pool ever gets any sun though!)
The staff are this hotel's greatest asset - all of them are young and incredibly willing to help, even when faced with rudeness from some guests (not a fellow Brit, I'm delighted to report!)
Would thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a relaxing, authentic and luxurious stay in Marrakech.

les borjs de la kasbah and places to visit

by dee9882


Could anyone give me a review on this hotel, its newly opened and i can't find much about it. It is close to the palais royal, is this a good location? Any tips on places to visit would also be helpful, going for 3 days/3 nights.

Also is it ok to eat food from most places there/ in the square? And is it better exchange rate to convert your money over there?

Any tips would be helpful

KNOW a few americna friendw who satyed there and seemed to enjoy it. It's actually in the Kasbah whcih is close to saadian tombs. It's also a 15 minutes walk to Jemaa Elfan square where you can eat at your risks and perils. Some like it ;others comlain of indigestion after eating there. There are lots of cheap restaurants just off the square. if you need help on must-see and do feel free to ask
