Very good location, right on the square, easy to find. Basic but good value for money. Bring earl plugs as the square is very loud at night. Breakfast is obviously very basic:. Crossaints, sweet buns (mostly dry) eggs, jam, tea, coffee, juice. All in all a good option for budget travellers.

Location, Staff & Security
Hotel is really old but comfortable and safe. It was not difficult to find hotel although it is located behind Djemaa El Fna (1-2 minutes). Very convenient to walk to market, souk, cafes & dining and visit landmark also. Hotel staffs are friendly and give useful tips on travel abroad Marrakesh. Definitely will stay there when come to Marrakesh again.

Helpful staff, Location, Good breakfast
The room was okay, it's clean & nice. Really value for money. The nice thing about breakfast is it's unlimited. You can have your coffee, milk, freshly squeezed orange juice, bread, croissant, egg all you want. The wifi is fast & the shared rest room & bathroom is clean.. But not all times especially if there are untidy guests around. The only thing I didn't like is this hotel can be so noisy at times because of other guests who are in groups, you cannot really be sure if you will have a nice peaceful sleep.. Sometimes you will be shocked at the middle of the night or early in the morning because of noisy guests. We're a couple who stayed here for 7 days by the way, all in all I like this hotel because of it's really a value hotel & the location is perfect, it's near every tourist sites, restaurants & souks. I am recommending this hotel for people who are on budget & wants a quality stay. Have a pleasant stay

High speed wifi
We stayed here for 4 nights which was a pleasant and cosy stay. The location was perfect for us as we wanted to explore the heart of Marrakech and the markets. The markets were 100m away and the main square was 20m with a few little shops were you could buy the essentials. Overall we were very happy with the stay

We were happy with our choice of hotel cecil,but it is definitely a budget hotel and not for everyone.It is an attractive traditional hotel,with rooms off a courtyard,very clean and comfortable beds.The breakfast on the roof is lovely and relaxing,with plenty to eat.No other meals were served,but there are so many eating opportunities around.The position is excellent if you want to be near the old centre.English is spoken at the desk.

It’s hard to get at place After one night we decided to find a Airbnb away from Square Had to stay another night as midday had passed also we were penalized paying a penalty as I couldn’t reach Agoda helpline for 2 hours constant wait n disconnect Eventually left 2 nights later to a Airbnb in a nicer part of town Fir 5 more nights which was more pleasant place The front office guy Mahomed was very helpful and the breakfast guy up rooftop was a delight n helpful smiley guy had great breakfast

Nice location directly at the djemma El fna. rather difficult when you are the first time in Marrakech but it's simple when you take the gate on the right side of the grand balcony restaurant on djemma El fna. the staff was very flexible with rearranging our booking which was paid and booked already without charging extra. nice terrace for breakfast. only downside: shared bathrooms are only cleaned once a day in the afternoon - and therefore are rather dirty.

Hotel Cecil Review”
Location, inside courtyard, comfy bed.
As other reviews of this hotel have stated,the mimnimal staff do not pamper you. Having said that what may appear to be poor service may be more to do with security. but I suspect it would the same in many other places.It is literally 15 sec walk to Medina Square yet still not too noisy. Nice roof terrace for Breakfast, Bread,croissants boiled eggs, Tea/coffee butter Jam and fruit juice. My room was fine, but small a comfy bed and duvet and good hot shower. With a really good price per night fantastic location I would reccommend it for anyone.(Unless you like marble and gold taps !)

Three nights in Marrakech”
The rooms, breakfast and the helpful staff.
My stay was problem free and enjoyable. I also stayed there again when I came back to Marrakesh at the end of my holiday. I arrived early and had to wait for the room to be made available and was offered a free breakfast. The only issue, not to do with the hotel, was that the google map that I printed off was wrong. The hotel is easy to find in the alley between the Cafe Balcon Glace and the Pharmacy on the corner.

100% would stay again/recommend - perfect spot!”
Location, helpful, clean
I was in Marrakech for 4 nights in mid-March. Excellent stay. The noise of the square is easily heard at night, but I want to emphasize that any hotel that is in such an incredible spot close to the square will be similar. The owner and staff are very helpful and accommodating - even serving coffee (just for me!) on the terrace and helping advise on prices for the souks. $20-30USD was reasonable for my double room with A/C, and I had at least 5 minutes of hot water each day. The other guests were not noisy, but the way sound carries through the open center area would have been a factor with a party crew staying. I did not get cleaning service while there, although I took the key many times and I was actually more comfortable without anyone else entering the room. The bed and pillows were comfortable. Ask for another blanket if you're cold. Pros: clean, cheap, helpful staff, overall very pleasant. Nothing but good to say. Cons: not for the noise-sensitive before midnight (stay further from the square and away from major roads), expensive compared to some other riads not so easily booked online.

Great location. Clean. Friendly staff.
Everything was just fine. The hotel arranged a taxi to meet us at the hotel. We get to the hotel around 3 hours before check in time but our room was ready. Great location. Literally a few steps from the square. Breakfast was good and fresh. Good ensuite. Comfy bed. We were on the gf and it was a little noisy from the ally and drums on the square so if this will keep you up, take ear plugs.

We stayed here for a week over new year 2014/2015. The riad is located right off the main market square, down a little arched entranced alleyway. The staff were all very nice and helpful. The room was clean. The roof terrace, where breakfast is served, is fantastic. We would stay here again. Definitely recommended.

Far from the madding crowd??”
The combination of the location, the friendly and always helpful staff and the very real value for money combine to make this my top choice for a stay in Marrakech.
The hotel was "just the job" for returning to after tackling the souks and sights and for planning excursions. I`ve stayed in smart riads with smart prices previously. Hotel Cecil suited me much better. It`s great value!

You just couldn't get any closer to the action.”
Friendly, Helpful and Pleasant
The hotel and staff were all excellent, just a pity some guests did not have any respect or consideration for other people. Although the hotel I think if fairly old it is showing signs of wear and could do with a little TLC but nothing major that would spoil anyone's stay. Unfortunately not all rooms have air conditioning, so in really hot weather my main tip would be to try and get a room with air conditioning. (mine did, so again, no problem there) As for the noise from the square, well TBH after the first night I didn't really notice it that much. Oh yes, as for the quality of the bed, well that was first rate, in fact it was as good as my own new bed which I recently bought.
