Jardins de la Koutoubia Hotel in Marrakech
In terms of location, this Marrakech hotel is hard to beat - being just a few hundred yards from the Koutoubia Mosque and central Jemaa El Fna square. It is also right on the edge of the main bazaars and very convenient for lugging home all the day's unnecessary purchases.... read_more...

Feedback and reviews
This hotel is in a super position very close to the main square. It also has the advantage of being by the Koutoubia mosque, a useful landmark if we got lost as we could spot the mosque above the buildings and get our bearings. Our room was lovely - well worth paying a bit more to overlook the main pool - and the food in the hotel was excellent too. We would stay here again M.H. in May 2009
