The location is good and the staff is friendly. Those were the good points. The rooms we had were dark and rather dirty, thick air, phone and wifi did not work. In one of the rooms no ventilation and cooler out of order. In the other, noise from kitchen above made sleeping impossible. We think that the hotel is in need of urgent renovation. Collapse
Simple hotel, best location and lovely staff.

This was my very first visit to Marakech. My wife had visited once before. I would like to say I was treated very well by Bedr eddin. He welcomed me to the city and also offered to change our room if we were not happy. He also handed me a morrocon tea voucher for me and my wife to enjoy on their lovely roof top terrace. The rooms were clean. Room service would change the bed covers and clean the floor and toilet everyday. I would suggest that they also clean under the beds daily. There was dust under ours and I assume that is the same for other rooms. This hotel is 3 star so I can only compare it to ibis budget hotel here in Britian. There is a simple small room. There is a small shower, small bed and the room in general is small. As you would expect with a budget hotel. Wi-Fi access only at the reception area and roof terrace. In our room we did not have any Wi-Fi access even though the roof top was near by. Each room has a little safe (ours did not have batteries). Plenty of cabinets to place your luggage and a wardrobe. Simple decoration. The window was tiny. The beds are really tough. If you are a thinking they have king size beds ready for you think again. It's just two single beds placed next to each other. I swear my belly got stuck in the gap between the beds. I almost got lost there too. Toilet had toilet paper, hand soap gel dispenser and a hair dryer which only works for 30 seconds. Very very simple toilet. I prefer ibis better in this department. The breakfast is kind of pre-set. Everyone is given a plate full of bread, jam, marmalade, butter, yogurt, coffee. May God forbid if you asked for anything different. The view of the koutibia mosque is amazing. The breeze and wheather makes all the breakfast taste 5 star. But then again on my final day there I kind of didnt eat much of it. You get bored of the same breakfast after 2 days. The location is fantastic. We would walk to Jama al fana to the souks everyday at different times as it is very very close. There is a KFC which is a few minute walk away. Please do not eat from there. I would rather eat hotel Islane breakfast all day than go to that KFC. The koutibia mosque is fantastic. Me and the wife visited it. The cyber park is about a 5 minute walk from the hotel. That was one of our favourite parks. You do not have to pay to enter either. You can just walk around and enjoy the scenery. The hotel also has a restaurant. We can only recomend the vegetable cuss cuss. Very delicious. My only complaint is that the meatball tagine we ordered. Some parts of the eggs were still raw. I showed the waiter that the eggs were raw he said we still have to pay for it as we have eaten the meatballs. So he advised us to pick something else. At which point I remembered a stuffed my self at McDonald's and dominos earlier that day and I was not hungry anyway. So i settled to pay for 4 meatballs for £8. I have to say the food at McDonald was fantastic. As you can tell I have been deprived from such food in Britain as I can only eat halal meat. For this reason I enjoyed the following eateries a bit more than I should have: KFC, Burger kings, Dominos, Pizza Hut and Mc Donalds. However only KFC is close by to the hotel. The other food joints are easily a 25 minute walk away. If I was returning to Marakech I would probably go for a 4 star hotel which generally do not have a central location. This is simply because they will offer a buffet breakfast. Also I feel like I have enjoyed the hustle and bustle of jama al fana, koutibia mosque and the near by parks enough to now enjoy other parts of the city. Collapse

We were there for only one night before heading on a tour to the Sahara Desert. We checked into our room in the early afternoon. After traveling all night, we wanted to shower, but there were no towels. We asked for towels two or three times before going out to eat and still nothing. They said it was gonna be there when we came back but it wasnt. We finally got them around 6pm. Bathroom was old and dirty. When we went to take a shower we notice little roaches all over the bathroom. We went to front desk to tell the receptionist but they said they didnt know what roaches were. We asked them if they had a bug spray and they said so. Didnt offer to change room or anything. Location was good and breakfast was decent. But I wouldnt stay there again. Collapse

The staff at Hotel Islane are very polite and helpful. The food is amazing and the dining area is in the terrace where there is a stunning view overlooking Koutoubia mosque. It's super convenient to have Jamaa El Fna square located only a few minutes away. I also received excellent service for excursions and would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay in Marrakech. Collapse

We have just returned from 5 days at Hotel Islane which is located just minutes away from the Madina and the Square. Typical Moroccan decor, very friendly staff and wonderful open air restaurant and terrace overlooking the mosque. The interior of the hotel was dark but you soon get used to finding your way round the corridors. We are planning on returning maybe next Spring. Collapse
