Imperial Holiday Hotel

Imperial Holiday Hotel, Marakesh Morocco

★   ★   ★    ★

No weather data found for [, ”Morocco”, ”Morocco”, horizontal]

A rather brash, unsophisticated middle market property in a busy area of the new town that attracts those on short breaks who do not want to be in the ancient Medina area.

Some of the decor at the pool is somewhat over the top, especially as the lawns and pool surround are jaded and in need of some attention. Property is generally short of traditional Moroccan character but provides a friendly and simple base in an easily accessible area.

Exterior

A pink coloured, busy looking building with green railed balconies. Property may look more at home in a popular Spanish resort, thanks to its rather dated 60s like appearance. A tall arched entrance has some character and leads straight into the wide lobby area.

Property type: Hotel

Balcony/Terrace: Some rooms

Storeys: 7

Built Year: 2002

Interior

A pleasant airy lobby has a double alcove reception area to one side. Marble floors and cladding add to the cool atmosphere and a corridor leads to the grounds at the rear. Restaurant is rather mundane in appearance with low ceilings and a regimental table layout. A colourful bar features blue coloured textiles and seating.

Rooms: 114

Grounds

Grounds are compact and cramped for the number of guests. An odd, cave-like monstrosity surrounds one side of the pool and accommodates a bar area with erratic opening times.

Sunloungers appear as though they have seen better days and the gardens feature a few colourful shrubs and palms and an unkempt lawn beside the pool.

Location

Area Type: Located in the busy new town area, 200m from the main commercial district, with a good selection of restaurants and shops in the surrounding streets. Other properties in the street are mainly residential and taxis frequently pass by the entrance. The Medina, with its souks and mosques is 1km to the south.
