Hotel Amira & Vacances
Ranked #694 of 1,172 Marrakech B&B and Inns
Reviewed 11 January 2012

My wife and I found Amira after having a bad experience at another hotel, the staff are lovely and work tirelessly day and night, the rooms are small (but so are all rooms in morocco). The bed and linen is clean and comfortable, towels are huge and crisp white and replaced daily. Breakast is enormous and served on the great rooftop with great view. Free fast wifi throughout including in rooms.
The location is great, the staff speak English, there is HOT WATER and the rooms are a very reasonable price. We highly recommend this hotel.

Nice place , right next to the main square in Marrakesh, nothing fancy, just simple.

Worst bits:
strange smell on the room (probably from the rug on the floor)
extremely small bathroom

Best bits
extremely well located
Very nice breakfast
Friendly staff
nice price
internet worked perfectly


All in all a good deal

I’ve booked a 2 days stay at this hotel through Hostelbookers.

It’s a quite simple place. Nothing fancy like stated at the announce. It’s comfortable and at the corner of Djemaa el-Fna. Most part of the staff speaks good English and some of then were very helpful (especially the guy who stays at the front-desk by day and the ladies from the kitchen). Shower was hot and the breakfast is quite good and generous.


Different from what was stated at their announce there’s no wifi at the rooms. You have to go to the roof if you want to use it. At night that’s a big issue, cause it’s usually very cold. There was no heating too. When I closed the deal in Hostelbookers I’ve paid one amount right away and was due to pay 450 DH at the hotel. At my checkout the person who was there insisted that I should pay 500 dh. I’ve tried to argument with him but ended having to pay it.

The hotel owner also say he can arrange a taxi for you at the cheapest fare. That’s a lie. The taxi he arranges works for him and charges 100dh. I’ve paid 25 dh from the Airport to downtown and 40dh the other way around.

Just go to a taxi driver and negotiate.

When I looked for a hotel, budget was the most important thing for me and this hotel came up as the cheapest for 1 person that time. I wasn't sure what I would get for this money, but I was very positively surprised.

Very clean and tidy little hotel newly refurbished up to local standard. The staff is really lovely and helpful, you feel like a family member. Very good location, just off the main square in the Medina, but that also mean that you will need to expect some noise coming through from the always happy crowd.

There is someone always there 24/7, I felt safe as a single female traveller. Oh, and you've got a medium sized brand new plasma TV in your room, which I didn't expect. ;-)
