Hotel Cecil Marrakech
Ranked #351 of 1,165 Marrakech B&B and Inns
Reviewed 28 July 2017 via mobile

Had a greateat stay here. Super close to the main square. Cheap, clean and great value, classically decorated. Breakfast and WiFi let it down a bit though - not much variety compared with other places I stayed in Marrakech, and the WiFi was only available in the courtyard, not in the rooms

Stayed: July 2017, travelled with friends

Amazing location right in the center of Marrakech. The staff is friendly and can easily understand English.

The place is simple and clean with an average breakfast and a lovely balcony towards the Jemaa el Fna square.

The wireless is a little bit poor in the rooms, but good in the common zones.

Perfect location in the heart of Marrakesh. Walking distance from every must see and must do. Very clean. Good price- definitely worth the money. Friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast is also good. A must stay if it fits into your budget!

I have stayed at Hotel Cecil a number of times in the past but it must be about four years since my last visit. Nothing much has changed. No frills, just the basics of a clean secure base for those that want to spend most of their day out and about. The rooms are small, the beds are comfortable.
One change I did notice was that breakfast, served on the roof terrace, is no longer brought to you on a tray but is a self service system now. Not a problem and probably best for guests and hotel. The choice is still the same simple but adequate fare: tea; coffee; milk; freshly squeezed orange juice; selection of bread; simple breakfast pastry; choice of preserves; boiled egg; cheese triangle. The seating area did also seem to have been improved with ample shade if required.
This visit I stayed in room 22, on the ground floor. This has the advantage of having windows on both sides of the room allowing for greater air flow but unfortunately has two major disadvantages: 1) almost everyone has to walk directly past the door and window of that room reducing privacy and increasing noise; 2) the other window is on to the narrow road that the hotel is on. This is a busy thoroughfare for people going to other hotels beyond or taking a shortcut to other routes. It also seems to be a great spot for everyone to stop and talk loudly on their phones and/or have a cigarette. The noise from Djma el Fnaa square can be heard but it is far enough away for me to be able to block it out.
Wifi and phone signals are available but really only in the central open part or on the roof. This may depend slightly on the signal reception of your own equipment too.
I was originally booked to stay for 2 nights. Whilst I was there I changed my plans last minute and stayed for a 3rd night. I could have changed room, but I decided that it just was not worth the effort for me at that stage. I had already booked to stay at a Dar in another part of the Medina for my final 2 nights in Marrakech.

Would I stay there again? Yes as it is a convenient location for my needs, but I would always compare it for value against other properties in the area that suit my needs.
Would I recommend it to others? Yes - provided they understand that it really is a no frills establishment ( and would advise they request not to have rm 22).

Room Tip: Room 22 noisy and less privacy than most others.

Superb location, close to Jemaa el Fna square. Staff were helpful and friendly, amazing rooftop terrace with okay breakfast. Unfortunately I had poor wifi in my room, bed had bed bugs and it was a little noisy at night.

Room Tip: Rooms on bottom floor near the walkway streets are loud and noisy at night. Every night.
