"I think we should of been informed of the building work that was being carried out directly behind our bedroom wall. I appricated that the building work was beyond the control of the hotel and from reading the reviews on the hotel about nosiey traffic I expected it to be noisey but didnt expect to be worken up at 7.30 every morning with banging and drilling and we were there for a 7 nights and the builders only had one day off. A plug in the bath would of also been nice. Basic and clean hotel would of been value for money with out the building work next door "

Miss A Christie of Warrington gave this hotel a 3 out of  5 overall satisfaction rating Miss A Christie of Warrington gave this hotel a 3 out of  5 overall satisfaction rating Miss A Christie of Warrington gave this hotel a 3 out of  5 overall satisfaction rating Miss A Christie of Warrington gave this hotel a 3 out of  5 overall satisfaction rating Miss A Christie of Warrington gave this hotel a 3 out of  5 overall satisfaction rating "Reasonable on a budget "
"This hotel is great if you are on a budget, dont plan to spend much time there and arent relying upon the breakfast. The hotel is clearly in need of an update and the decor (and staff) appear tired and past it. The High Atlas tour offered by reception just didnt go quite High enough, so if its mountains you wish to see, you'd be advised to book elsewhere.....However, that said, the hotel is convieniently placed to walk to the Medina and train station, the official open top bus tour begins right outside and Charly's Cabana restaurant around the corner do the best Tajines for miles! The rooms are clean even if outdated and the price cant be grumbled at. Give it a go. "
The best thing about Amalay was:"Location "
The worst thing about Amalay was: "Marrakesh gets very cold at night and the bedroom heating did not work in 2 seperate rooms "

"
"Friendly helpful staff made the stay very pleasant. Basic rooms but clean and tidy, plenty of hot water. On a busy road so if your room overlooks it there is some traffic noise. About 30min easy walk into the old town. Basic breakfast but nice to have it included. Smoking is the norm so the room did smell a bit of cigarettes - lots of nice smelling things in the souk to combat this though! "
The best thing about Amalay was:"Clean and comfortable "
The worst thing about Amalay was: "Slight smokey smell. "

"Nice little hotel in Mohamed v, a short walk to the Medina (15 min). We were very lucky to get the suit room which was great! Good size and clean room an toilet. Simple but good breakfast included in the price of the room. Very good. Very good service both late at night and very early in the morning. Only bad point: the elevator is very noise and would wake up light sleepers (not our case). I would recommend it to anybody and would definitely go again if I visit Marrakech. "

"The hotel amalay situated about a 15 minuite walk from the center of marrakech was a great base for myself and a friend on a lads weekend away from the better halfs! The room was clean and spacious with a well apointed bathroom en-suit we didn't have much of a view from the window (fire escape and roof tops) but we were out all day and were using the hotel only for sleeping. Breakfast wasn't very filling for two large chaps you get a 6" piece of french bread and a pan au chocolat with tea or coffee we asked for some orange juice as well and this was also provided (freshley squeezed lovely). A taxi to the main square should cost you about 10 dnr if they use the meter but for tourists it is more likley to be 40 dnr (£2.60) ther are plenty of places to eat in the evening so after the breakfast expeariance we didn't try the hotel restaurant. There was a bit of traffic noise but nothing that I wouldn't expect you to get in any other hotel in marrakech. "
The best thing about Amalay was:"Clean "
The worst thing about Amalay was: "Tv remote didn't work had to get out of bed to turn it off! "

"The hotel is a bit of a way from the Souk, but if you're not someone who drives everywhere in their car, then it's a nice walk - but keep on your toes when crossing the roads! The room was nice & clean, w/ en - suite.... W/ a good breakfast to get you started for the day. Go for it! "

"Good all round value, although breakfast was a bit hit and miss (depending on wether a tour group was staying). Izmi (or Imzi) tours across the road offered a good range of trips. Out of the hotel and turn right, and then keep walking for 30 minutes plus (not ten as advertised) to reach the square! "
The best thing about Amalay was:"The restaurant and its prices "
The worst thing about Amalay was: "The shower/bath controls were beyond the shower head meaning you got a cold soak "

"Affordable hotel near to all that Marrakesh has to offer. Clean and friendly basic accommodation (E.G. no pool) but with restaurant and breakfast room. Would recommend to travellers on a budget. Location on main road meant some traffic noise, but this wasn't an issue with windows shut and ac on. "

"We found this hotel good value for the money. Although basic It was spotlessly clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The day we wanted to catch the 7am train to Casablanca they gave us an early morning call and provided our breakfast at 6.15 we were very impressed. The food served in the restaurant was good and plentiful. Being centrally located made it very easy to get around the city The open top bus service where you could hop on and off left from outside the hotel. There was also a taxi rank. We felt that for the money spent we were given a good service and would not hesitate to return. "
