A little haven of peace, the Palais Sebban is an example of a successful restoration. All of the materials were carefully chosen and the result is ravishing. The palace is rather small but it boasts a variety of guest rooms and lovely little patios.

    Location 8.8 /10

    Located close to the Koutoubia mosque, the Palais Sebban is easily accessible from the district of Bab El Ksour. It stands about a 10 minute walk away from Jemaa El Fna square and a 15 minute taxi ride from the airport (3 mi).

    Accommodation 7.70 /10

    Each of the 19 guest rooms has a character all its own. If you wish to stay in one particular room of the hotel, we recommend you book it in advance. The blue room, with marble flooring, is both discreet and comfortable. The bathrooms in the suites are divided into 2 separate parts: the first one with a bathtub and a toilet, and the second one with a wash basin and a dryer, which makes them roomier. The Indian room deserves a special mention because of its huge mirrors ornate with inlays, its red and white glazed tiles, its transparent chandelier, and paintings of oriental inspiration. Everything has been very carefully arranged: doors, lamps, mirrors, etc.

    Overview 7.95 /10

    The Palais Sebban opened its doors in 2006 after 4 years of renovations initiated by Jean-Pierre, the present owner. Zelliges (colour tiles), marble, tadelakt, sculpted plaster, original ceilings, etc.: all of the materials and shapes were chosen with great care. This hotel is worthy of its name! Step in through the wooden door to discover the surprising decor created by a succession of patios and changing colours. In the first room, you will find the reception as well as a meeting area. The reception desk is made out of carved wood and a huge mirror framed with wood complements the decor. In the patio following it, you will find yourself standing under a white gypsum dome decorated with Moorish arabesque patterns. At the end of the string of patios lay the swimming pool and restaurant. A solarium terrace arranged with deckchairs looks out over the pool and the roofs of Marrakech, and a little further along you will find a hammam for 2, as well as a massage room.

    Food and drink 7.20 /10

    The restaurant consists of 5 tables set up in a small room also used as a games room. Both international cuisine and Moroccan specialities are served (fish, meat, various desserts). You will be able to enjoy breakfast under the white dome of a patio entirely covered in earthenware tiles.

    To know

    The Palais Sebban owes its name to the original owner of the riad, Caid Sebban (an important leader in Moroccan society), later to be maintained by his descendants for over a hundred years. If you like shopping, you will have a chance to purchase clothes at the mini boutique or buy a DVD about the hotel from the reception. Cooking enthusiasts will also be able to take part in the classes provided. The hotel's clientele is essentially European, and more particularly, British, Spanish, and French.

        Excellent Hotel! L'accueil est très chaleureux avec thé et gâteaux locaux servis dès notre arrivée, le personnel est serviable. Ils nous ont même offert le séjour dans une chambre de qualité de supérieure à celle que nous avions payé. Les locaux sont très grands avec une piscine au centre de l'hôtel et deux terrasses: très agréables, idéal pour profiter du soleil, se détendre entre amis ou faire de la lecture. L'architecture et les décors sont splendides: architecture orientale. Je recommande!

      • Advantages

        Idéal pour une lune de miel. Très reposant et dépaysant. Accès direct au centre ville (5 minutes à pieds). Quartier agréable, vivant et musical. Odeur très agréable dans l'ensemble de l'hôtel. Le personnel parle bien français. Service parfait.

      • Disavantages

        Restaurant cher mais cela peut être palier grâce aux restaurants environnant.

      It is hard to define this magical and unique place. The Palais Namaskar is completely different than what you will find elsewhere in Marrakesh and we were definitely won over! A luxurious little palace, it manages to avoid all those poorly chosen details that some luxury hotels are capable of including. Neither flashy nor ostentatious, the Palais Namaskar is sober and sophisticated. The luxury can be seen in its magnificent gardens, in the personalised service guests receive from the moment they arrive, in the stylish decor, and even in the lack of any flashy features. The Palais Namaskar will definitely become a go-to place for an exacting clientèle that is discreet but also, and mostly, quite wealthy.

      Excessiveness and pomp are the two keywords at the Taj Palace Marrakesh, which will definitely leave guests talking for a long time and attract a few curious visitors. Those who can afford to stay in this palace will appreciate the very personalised service, the welcome worthy of a king, and the attention that is put into every detail of the decor. Although there will certainly be those who find the decor isn`t to their liking, as it really is very razzly-dazzly and just too much. However, this hotel really is worth having a look at and is sure to stir up the curiosity of tourists.
