The hotel was impeccable, right from the second you walk through the door, it's first class at every step.
When you're dropped off by the taxi, it is a little confusing, they'll drop you off infront of an alley and say it's down the way. You think that you were just taken for a ride, as you can't see the door from the road so it's a little worrying. When you do find the door, again it's very unassuming, but once you enter, it's incredible! The entire experience was phenomenal, definitely check out the jazz bar at night for a drink, and have some of the mint tea!

A fantastic oasis of calm in the heart of Marrakech. Step in off a dusty street in the Kasbah, and you find yourself in an art deco haven of wonderful rooms, furniture, spaces and relaxation.
Lovely welcome and wonderful service, with huge, comfortable room - ask for the biggest room! Food was great and it was nice to be able to have breakfast wherever we wanted - roof terrace, courtyard, dining room - depending on what we felt like on the day. With only a small number of rooms, you get a really personal service and all the staff make you feel valued and special.
I wouldn't say that it's a place to take children - but that's maybe more out of selfishness to keep it calm, adult and special than the fact they may not like it!
Quentin and his wife, who manage the hotel, could not do more to help and were lovely. They recommended places to see and eat, but also arranged personal tour guides and day trips for us.
I thoroughly recommend the Villa Makassar!
"Cool little B&B style hotel with friendly staff."
The hotel is a located quite well in a busy plaza. I would definitely recommend getting the transfer as it's a bit hard to find on your own on arrival. the staff are super friendly - they came and picked us up from a cafe when we were lost!
The room is really clean and good facilities. The cooked breakfast in the morning was a lovely surprise. Would go back again for my next visit.
You'd never know that behind a simple black door there was a wonderful garden, a pool and an outstanding hotel. In the middle of the hurly burly of the medina is an oasis of calm; a perfect antidote to the noise of the town. Hotel itself is superb with very friendly, helpful staff. Food is excellent - albeit too much -and rooms are large and comfortable; a great place for a few days.
When we arrived in Marrakesh we were picked up at the airport by the Hotel. A short walk from the taxi stand to the Riad. We were given tea and cookies upon arrival and given a tour of the facilities. Everything looked quite beautiful. We had asked for dinner that night and we received a delicious Moroccan meal. The Riad is located only a short distance from where all the action is in the main square. The staff is extremely friendly and courteous.
