We stayed here last week. Great location. Jama Al Fana square was an easy 10-15 minute walk. Lots of restaurants in the neighborhood too. Our corner room had lovely view of the Koutoubia and Atlas mountains. Concierge was helpful with arranging trips and guides.

Beautiful property with poor customer service

TripAdvisor rating 4.5/5

Climber277868 Friends getaway - 08/01/2019 TripAdvisor review

Excited to stay at the property but was quickly disappointed by the lack of urgency by the staff and general unwelcome feeling. Made multiple requests to have the air conditioner fixed in my junior suite which was finally resolve on the 3rd night. Additional requests to have the television fixed to no resolution and I just gave up. Would not stay at this property again and would not recommend to anyone looking for 5 star service.

I book a suite at the Sofitel for a special occasion. ! My sister getting married so we want to celebrate but the room was horrible ! Old and the bathroom need renovation !!! They couldn’t change me the room cause the hotel was full ! I expect little bit more from this hotel ! I even ask them to give me two connects rooms so we can have at lease a good bathroom but they could do that ! I ask to speak to the manager but she didn’t make a effort to come meet me I see few peoples.. but a leave Marakesh with desapoinment.

Lovely central hotel with charm

TripAdvisor rating 4.5/5

Joanna M Business - 15/10/2017 TripAdvisor review

Lovely hotel near the central médina in Marrakech. Heated outdoor pool with kids pool. Small crèche for kids age 4 plus. Great babysitter for 10 euros per hour for babies. Fabulous breakfast and descent room service. Opera suite large but really needs updating- online photos do not match reality. Staff hit and miss - some happy to help, other you need to push for anything. Hire the hotel tour guide for a hassle free tour of souks. Would rate 4 definitely not 5 stars.

Location is great, breakfast is fantastic, service is very good, people are friendly and polite, rooms need a bit of freshing up, they need to something about the air condition, beds, duvets , in overall its ok but could be better for a Sofitel.

Great location. We really enjoyed our stay with the family. The service at pool restaurant is to be improved dramatically. Other than that almost perfect. We are used to stay in Sofitel hotels while traveling in Morocco. Meeting expectation of Sofitel standards, but this is not the best Sofitel hotel in Morocco.

Sofitel Marrakesh on the decline

TripAdvisor rating 4.5/5

NattyOujda Family - 20/05/2017 TripAdvisor review

My strong advice for anyone visiting this particular hotel is not to expect a 5star service. Some of the staff at check in are rude and not interested in resolving issues. Their attitude stinks. I asked to speak to a manger 6 times, he kept me waiting in the lobby for over a hour and was a no show. I have also been charged breakfast which was suppose to be included in the package. I have stayed in this hotel over 10 times and doubt I will ever go back.

Fantastic Hotel For Families

TripAdvisor rating 4.5/5

541jaceks Family - 18/04/2017 TripAdvisor review

This is a fantastic hotel for families. Great pools (one heated) both for kids (ages 10,8,3) and adults. It wasn't too crowded. Service was excellent (special thanks to the butler Zacharia and the young Concierge who had plenty of great suggestions for our family meals and trip. The hotel is outside of the medina but close enough to walk in with the kids and close to quite a few great restaurants. Overall it was a great experience allowing something of quality to both parents and kids.

TripAdvisor rating 4.5/5

414suleimana Couples - 02/01/2017 TripAdvisor review

Very lovely, well scented hotel in a very good location within walking distance to the Medina. Cordial staff. For me, the draw backs are: room lighting not bright enough and the hotel corridors were very cold, with no evident heating system extend therein. Otherwise, a very cosy hotel. Will definitely stay there again if I ever return to Marakkesh.

Cvt2711 Friends getaway - 30/05/2016 TripAdvisor review

We arrived and it took ages to get your room. The rooms are dark and very dirty. The beds so old you try to hide it to put some extra tin matrasses that son't fit and you almost role out of your bed. Breakfast is great., but overall it looks more llike a cheap MTV party hotel.

hyper excellent

478waynem478 Couples - 15/04/2016 TripAdvisor review

A calm Oasis in Marrakesh. Super service and great facilities - the gardens were a delight and there was loads to do for adults and families in the hotel grounds. The room was brilliant, large, clean, well appointed with a great balcony and view. The king sized bed was superb.

Great Hotel with lots to do but one major issue

TripAdvisor rating 4.5/5

cadidevile Couples - 28/02/2016 TripAdvisor review

We stayed for 6 nights and had a great time as the hotel is in a great location and the onsite bars are great. The only issue we had for 4-5 of the nights is the noise from 8am to 11am. I think it may be the people cleaning the rooms but this did impact our sleep. We like to sleep in but we could not because of all the moving and at times shaking of the room. We thought one bad night | morning but it was a daily loud noise for over 3 hours. We were in a jr suite on the 5th floor. The hotel is great and the only reason I would think about it twice is the noise. Most of the staff is friendly and I can see the impact of the other reviews and how the hotel is trying to address them.

Looking a bit tired

TripAdvisor rating 4.5/5

213daveg Solo travel - 14/09/2015 TripAdvisor review

I've not stayed in this hotel for a few years but must admit I was a little disappointed having looked forward to coming back. Staff were as you'd expect for a Sofitel but the rooms was looked old and dated and in general I didn't think the price was good value for money. Certainly better on offer in Marrakech these days
