Great hotel with excellent service. Room was as per description of the hotel. Great service with all you could ask for in a hotel. Literally an Oasis in the Medina (see comments on location)
The only issue with the hotel is the location. It is situated in the northern part of the Medina which means that travellers have to go through the back lanes of the Medina and you are guaranteed to get lost. This will invariably result in you being accosted by young men wanting to 'show' you the way and are only doing it for some money. Having said that note that this issue applies to most Riads in the Medina and therefore if you are going to stay in teh Medina area the only thing to do is arm yourself with a good map and a general good sense of direction. It would really help if the hotel printed off a good map with directions marked to Jamaa El Fnaa - the map handed to us was useful but limited.
very pleasant riad with ultra friendly and helpful host. However, further than expected from the main square
very dificult to found the riad, payment by arrival, no arrangement with the closest parking, etc. i would say the riad doesnt care about their clients.
Breakfast was great and the staff was very helpful, though no english was spoken. The pool is awesome and the terrace very comfortable.
The hotel is a little far from the main square and we had a little trouble walking back through the labyrinth that is Marrakesh. Also, they don't serve any food other then breakfast, so don't count on a relaxing night in.
The staff was really friendly, they helped were they could. The rooms were very beautiful!
The only negative point is the location, but I don't think this is a reason not to come here. Because of the location you really find out how life is in Marrakech, and the taxi's are really cheap!
Rooms and breakfast are ok
Riad Alwane was very hard to find in the medina of Marrakech, the description does not help a lot.
Hospitality and kind service
Entering the Riad was like leaving the world behind. It was quiet and relaxed - just the thing after a day of the hustle and bustle of the city. Perfect for a good night's sleep.
The riad is a lot further away from Jamaa el Fna (the Central Square) than the description leads you to think. It is at least a half hour walk - if you know the way and walks outside of the local rush hour. The staff are kid and helpful but do not speak any English at all.
the comfort and relaxtion
hidden costs and expensiveness
It was clean and nicely decorated.
The description of the location was misleading and not close to the square (Jeema El Fna) as it advertised.
Riad Alwane sijaitsee keskustassa, ja Djemaa el-Fna (markkinatori) ja Ben Youssefin moskeija 15 minuutin ajomatkan päässä. Käytössäsi on ympäri vuorokauden auki oleva vastaanotto, kielitaitoinen henkilökunta ja matkatavarasäilytys. Hyödynnä maksulliset lentokenttäkuljetukset (menopaluu) (saatavilla ympäri vuorokauden).
Käytännöt vaihtelevat huonetyypin ja palveluntarjoajan mukaan.
