Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 September 2017

We are just back from another wonderful stay in Albakech House. It's a great location - 10 minute taxi drive from the main square or a 45 minute walk and with a supermarket across the road where you can buy snacks and beer (which the staff are happy to pop in the fridge for you). This small boutique hotel is just a 5 minute walk away from a number of larger hotels with bars and evening entertainment. The rooms are very comfortable, the pool is fabulous and the breakfast is very generous (usually bread, pastries, eggs, fresh fruit and yoghurt). You can also order snacks (sandwiches, chips) for those days when you want a lazy day by the pool. If you're looking for a quiet, relaxed, friendly place to stay that offers great value, this is hard to beat. We'll definitely be back

Room Tip: Room 18 has a large outside balcony. No great views but nice to relax and eat on

Just arrived back 2 days ago from Al-Bakesh Riad with my son, been to Marrakesh twice and this was the first time I stayed in a Riad and was not disappointed. Upon arrival we were greeted by Adam the Boss and were given a refreshing mint tea.
The staff were all very attentive and made us feel at home. Breakfast was nice a decent array of fresh fruit, yogurt, eggs/omelettes, pancakes, croissants and your choice of a hot drink (we always went for the mint tea).
The Riad had a cozy feel to it, our room was spacious with a TV and separate toilet/sink and shower room which reminded me of a hammam layout very nice.
The area was about 8-10 Taxi ride from the Main Sqaure and Jama al Fana, I noticed it was best to book a taxi through reception staff that way the Taxi drivers did not try to get more out of us (average during the day 30-40 dirhams and 40-50 dirhams in the evening (which is roughly about £5-£8)). The Riad had an average size pool which was ideal to cool down during mid afternoon especially after missions in the sun and ok for a swim.
We felt safe; in the evenings the main front doors was kept locked so we had to knock on the door to get entry. across from the hotel was a Plaza and it was bigger than what I expected, its 3 floors and a the top floor there are many eateries such as Burger King/Pizza Hut/Dominios, Italian restaurant, cafes, Asian and Moroccan, this saved us some trips to the main square or anywhere else when buying food and the bottom floor had a massive store similar to Asda/Walmart.
on the right of the hotel is a cinema with international movies (Hollywood and Bollywood, I got a feeling they are dubbed in Arabic or French?
overall had a pleasant time was calming coming back from the craziness of the square.

This was our first time in Marrakech, and we couldn't have picked a better place to stay. The hotel is in a quiet area but taxis are cheap, so its really easy to get around. Albakech house is a small Moroccan hotel with fantastic staff..nothing was too much trouble, breakfast was delicious, Amen was so helpful. I can't say enough about this hotel.
A big thank you to Adam and all his staff.
