Historical Traveller Reviews of Atlas Asni Hotel
Excellent - better than the reviews here led us to expectfrom sheriffade
We stayed B & B and the breakfast was fantastic - as for things running out - well yes 1 day they did not have any boiled eggs !! - oh what a trauma, we had to rough it on 4 types of cereal, 3 types of pastries, toast, scrambled eggs, 2 types of pancakes and unlimited OJ, coffee, tea and mint tea.
The staff were all courteous and polite, people might confuse their restrained, "low-key" behaviour as being "aloof" this is not the case but it is their culture to be polite and do not do anything that may cause offense.
The guests appear to be mostly French so if you like to have the comfort of hearing English around you then pick carefully.
Most of the staff spoke good English - but using a bit of French helps to build relations.
However if all you want from the locals is them to serve you lager till you keel over then stick to the Costa's !
Reasonable but not 4 star - more like a reasonable 3from DFS
Nice hotel and good valuefrom Paul38
Good Hotel - Value for Moneyfrom ClaudiaH
The Atlas Asni is clean, the rooms are big, you have cable tv and a big bathroom. A very nice and big lobby, a nice pool and pool area. The complimentary breakfast buffet is basically an expanded version of an American breakfast. People smoke anywhere within the hotel premises, but that is something common everywhere in Morrocco. The staff is helpful to the extent they're able to.
In short, don't expect charm, sophistication or luxury, this is a hotel from which which you can start your day freshly and go back and rest in confort. Good value for money.
we really enjoyed our stay in marrakechfrom elliemeg
the reception area is very plush,with fresh flowers, water feature, marbled walls floors etc, the rooms are more basic more 3 star but reasonably comfortable with a decent sized bathroom with a bath and shower, the room had a tv, no kettle or fridge, we did find the rooms too hot and at night unbearable, the hotel knows how to charge for food, drink ,suana massage hair dressers etc so therefore we didnt use many facilities as found the hotel to expensive. breakfast was fine except they did allow things to run out which was a pain having to keep asking for a bowl, orange juice etc. you can change money at the hotel which was helpful as its not easy to change money in marrakech. the main sq was too far for us to walk but a taxi was only about 1.25 in the day and 1.80 at night. horse and carriages and the open topped bus stopped nearby, we were pleased we booked away from the main sq as my husband couldnt cope with the constant hassle. we got the hotel for a good price around £29 a night for a double room b&b which i think was fine ,booking direct with the hotel it was about £85 a night. ive included some pics of the hotel for you to look at

I really don't understand the negative reviews, although my mother language is not english and during our stay I always tried my best to communicate in french.
Top Local Tips for Marrakech
Taxis After negotiation, we paid 200 dirham for eight of us to get to / from the airport. Averaged about 10 dirham per head in and out of town including night-time. Driving in Marrakech is insane but keeps you amused on your journeys. Some taxi drivers try to sell you trips to the Atlas mountains - The best deal we were offered was a minibus for eight with a guide for 800 dirham.
Dar Moha You have to try this restaurant. Make sure you book the day before and ask for a seat by the pool. It is a beautiful setting and very romantic with a truly original menu of modern Morroccan food. Menu would suit veggies. Highly recomended.
Some must do trips A couple of MUST do's in Marrakech is the Red Tourist Bus that takes you around the city and suburbs. Tickets are good for 24 hrs - hop on, hop off - cost about 120 DHM, the main stop is close to McDonalds but you can catch it near the main square. Fantasia is an absolute must do for an evening’s entertainment. Cost is 420 DHM, which includes transfers, wine, a meal of lamb, salad, couscous, and vegetable tagine plus the best entertainment in town - Thursdays and Saturdays nights are the best. If you are not with a regular tour group, ask at any of the international hotels concierge desks. Most tourist reps can organise trips to Atlas Mountains but is much cheaper to hire a taxi for the day if you can find a driver who speaks enough English. Safety is no problem, we have just returned after an 8 day Christmas break and felt very safe in the souks and main square even after sundown. Just take the normal precautions with your wallet and camera. Make sure you always have small change with you 5, 10 & 20 DHM's as nobody will have change for larger notes (or so they will claim!!) It gets VERY cold out of the sun so make sure you have a jumper etc with you at all times in winter. We ate in main square stalls on a number of occasions; no problems with tummy troubles, go after 18:00 and eat were the westerners are eating. Best to drink bottled water - 6 DHM in the local shops 25 DHM in hotels. We drank coffee on the terrace in Cafe de France and drank freshly squeezed orange juice from the stalls both of these are on the main square. A coffee cost 12 DHM and orange juice 3 DHM. A good evening meal is about 90 DHM each - it is so cheap to eat out. For transfers from airport to hotel use Med Hotels - click the transfer tag for booking. (£8 each return) They will meet you at the airport and take you to your hotel - you also get a local rep at no extra charge who can organise the Fantasia evening and other excursions for you. Have a good time, brush up on your French and practise haggling – enjoy.
