"The first boutique hotel in Marrakech still holds its own against all latecomers. It has a genteel air, with a colonial bar and a garden pool."
Rough Guide Rough Guide
"Though not as famous as the Mamounia, this is arguably Marrakesh’s classiest hotel, a gorgeous nineteenth-century mansion that’s been restored with fine traditional workmanship."

"This hotel, on a tiny side street in the center of the busy medina, has roots that go back to the 1940s, when it was a posh restaurant and social center for Marrakech's expatriate community." Full review

Be sure to enjoy one of the dadas (Moroccan pancakes) or fresh viennoiserie prepared daily by the hotel's own pastry chef.
