Perfect location but poor stuff”

Great location, very clean, good price

The location of this hotel is perfect, right in the Djemaa el Fna square which is the main attraction of Marrakech. The rooms are pretty small and dark but very clean so it’s not the best location to laze but is perfect to rest or take a hot shower after a long and agitated day. The only thing we didn’t like about Hotel Cecil was its stuff. We slept there for 3 separated nights but we booked in advanced just for one night (we didn’t know exactly how our trip will go further). After the first night we started a 3 day trip to Merzouga and we talked with the guy at the reception to book a room for us for when we will return, but when we came back, the guy didn’t reserved the room for us so we had to take another one, without bathroom. Next morning we wanted to go to Essaouira so we talked again, this time with another guy, to make another reservation for our last night in Marrakech. The man explained us that there is only one room left but he can’t reserve it for us because of some weird reasons regarding the booking over internet, so we left the town and booked the room from the internet. When I booked the room online I have made a mistake reserving a double room for a single person so when we returned again to Hotel Cecil I tried to explain this to the receptionist (a third person this time). He said that there is no problem but I don’t know exactly how much did he understood from what I was telling him because he didn’t speak English very well. Anyway, after half an hour another person came to us yelling that we are liars and we want to ruin their business without giving us the chance to explain the situation. After he calmed down a little, we paid the difference and everything was ok. All in all it was a pleasant stay, even if we had these small problems with the stuff. I think that the agitation surrounding us made us forget about all these misunderstandings and I will consider booking it again next time I’ll go to Marrakech.

Beautiful traditional style in ideal location”

A beautiful room, plenty of room comfortable bed and fine roof terrace for meals. Located close to Djemaa el Fna but just far enough off the square to be peaceful

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Hotel Cecil. We had booked a double room but were allocated a room with 2 extra single beds in a an area curtained off from the main bed area so had plenty of space.The room was beautifully decorated considering the modest tariff and we had a fine breakfast each morning on the sunny roof terrace from which one can see the Atlas mountains to the east. From the front door of Hoel cecil was a 50 metre walk up the alley to Djemaa el Fna.

Lovely hotel ”

The palm tree in the courtyard caught my attention

Nourdine is by far the best hotel manager in Marrakech. I noticed he speak at least 4 languages fluently. Our stay at Hotel Cecil were one of the best experiences in Morocco. The Market is almost opposite the hotel, about 75 meters and very close to a very nice restaurant where Nourdine organized for us to be treated to some of the best Moroccan dishes. The rooms is very well furnished and the noise of the Souk is completely blocked out during night time. Well done Nourdine, keep up your good work.

Nice location, flexible staff ”

Nice location directly at the djemma El fna. rather difficult when you are the first time in Marrakech but it's simple when you take the gate on the right side of the grand balcony restaurant on djemma El fna. the staff was very flexible with rearranging our booking which was paid and booked already without charging extra. nice terrace for breakfast. only downside: shared bathrooms are only cleaned once a day in the afternoon - and therefore are rather dirty.

Hotel with good location”

Good breakfast served and less than a minute away from Djemma El Fna

This hotel offers a decent product for the price paid. It is very near to the Djemma El Fna to it makes for an easy break when it gets too tiring. The hotel also offers a tour package to Merzouga and other places which I took up. Caution though that the agency did not provide a single room to solo travelers as promised at the time of booking but put us all together in a triple room (there were 3 single guys traveling alone including myself) on my desert excursion). The room was adequate and I was given an upgrade to a 4 person room upon my return.

Excellent hotel, well run and great location”

Breakfast, accommodating staff, roof terrace

We stayed here for 1 night at the start of our visit to Morrocco and 1 night at the end. This place is excellent value for money - the rooms are a good size and clean and the breakfast is great (bread, jam, pain au chocolat, coffee, fresh orange juice, mint tea). The reception was always manned which meant there was always someone to answer questions - the staff gave us advice on which buses to catch, how much taxis/buses should cost and let us leave our luggage in a secure room after we had checked out. Compared to other Riads, Hotel Cecil is fairly easy to find and is on the corner of the square.

100% would stay again/recommend - perfect spot!”

Location, helpful, clean

I was in Marrakech for 4 nights in mid-March. Excellent stay. The noise of the square is easily heard at night, but I want to emphasize that any hotel that is in such an incredible spot close to the square will be similar. The owner and staff are very helpful and accommodating - even serving coffee (just for me!) on the terrace and helping advise on prices for the souks. $20-30USD was reasonable for my double room with A/C, and I had at least 5 minutes of hot water each day. The other guests were not noisy, but the way sound carries through the open center area would have been a factor with a party crew staying. I did not get cleaning service while there, although I took the key many times and I was actually more comfortable without anyone else entering the room. The bed and pillows were comfortable. Ask for another blanket if you're cold. Pros: clean, cheap, helpful staff, overall very pleasant. Nothing but good to say. Cons: not for the noise-sensitive before midnight (stay further from the square and away from major roads), expensive compared to some other riads not so easily booked online.

have stayed in many many of the hotels in these alleys off the square. This is by far the best ive stayed in for the money. my girlfriend and i in one room and a twin room for our mothers. Easy to find, directly behind the Glacier cafe which faces the square. Seems to have been recently renovated. great breakfast on the roof in the sun. Strangely quiet for one of the places in the numerous alleyways, clean. Our room had a double bed and 2 singles. They even took us in on returning from Essaouira when we abandoned The Riad Oliviers at 2 in the morning which i had mistakenly booked for New Years Eve thinking the Cecil being near the Square would be very noisy and Oliviers quiet,oh how wrong was i! Had some bus tickets for onward travel delivered there too which they kept for us.

this hotel is typical cheap hotel for backpacker however i will recommend following reason. 1. good location (only 30 second!!! walk to place djemaa el fna). 2. private shower (24 hrs and very hot) 3. nice breakfast, especially the french bread. 4. comfortable inner coat area.

Far from the madding crowd??”

The combination of the location, the friendly and always helpful staff and the very real value for money combine to make this my top choice for a stay in Marrakech.

The hotel was "just the job" for returning to after tackling the souks and sights and for planning excursions. I`ve stayed in smart riads with smart prices previously. Hotel Cecil suited me much better. It`s great value!

Cheap and nice hotel”

Great location and good price

we stayed in this hotel for 2 days. the hotel has a great location, as it is located just next to the djemaa el fna square. rooms are basic, but ok. bathroom is ok, though the shower runs out of hot water now and then.

Marrakech ”

Location, price, charming.

We had a lovely stay at the Hotel Cecil. Only the bathroom left some unfavorable wishes. No shower curtain, no tooth glasses, mirrors totten. Everything else was perfect for the price we paid.

Hotel Cecil Review”

Location, inside courtyard, comfy bed.

As other reviews of this hotel have stated,the mimnimal staff do not pamper you. Having said that what may appear to be poor service may be more to do with security. but I suspect it would the same in many other places.It is literally 15 sec walk to Medina Square yet still not too noisy. Nice roof terrace for Breakfast, Bread,croissants boiled eggs, Tea/coffee butter Jam and fruit juice. My room was fine, but small a comfy bed and duvet and good hot shower. With a really good price per night fantastic location I would reccommend it for anyone.(Unless you like marble and gold taps !)

Value for money.”

Helpful staff, Location, Good breakfast

The room was okay, it's clean & nice. Really value for money. The nice thing about breakfast is it's unlimited. You can have your coffee, milk, freshly squeezed orange juice, bread, croissant, egg all you want. The wifi is fast & the shared rest room & bathroom is clean.. But not all times especially if there are untidy guests around. The only thing I didn't like is this hotel can be so noisy at times because of other guests who are in groups, you cannot really be sure if you will have a nice peaceful sleep.. Sometimes you will be shocked at the middle of the night or early in the morning because of noisy guests. We're a couple who stayed here for 7 days by the way, all in all I like this hotel because of it's really a value hotel & the location is perfect, it's near every tourist sites, restaurants & souks. I am recommending this hotel for people who are on budget & wants a quality stay. Have a pleasant stay

Perfect location, great high speed wifi connection”

High speed wifi

We stayed here for 4 nights which was a pleasant and cosy stay. The location was perfect for us as we wanted to explore the heart of Marrakech and the markets. The markets were 100m away and the main square was 20m with a few little shops were you could buy the essentials. Overall we were very happy with the stay
