We stayed here for a night on the way to a stay in Essaouira and were really impressed with the friendliness of the staff, as well as the boutique feel of the hotel. Rooms were really good, massive shower, robes, and a nespresso coffee machine too. Breakfast was great, eggs cooked to order, fresh fruit platters, and delicious croissants.

Marrakesh is such a wonderful destination, the sights the smells so evocative. The hotel was all of that and more, what a place super staff and super location and surroundings, we are going back! We particularly liked the public areas, very clean and tidy a perfect place to relax before or after venturing out.

We travelled to Marrakesh for the first time with friends and were blown away by the place. The hotel made us so welcome and couldn't do enough to make our stay. Beautiful decor and great design - some areas need a bit of work , but on the whole a fab stay.

Recently stayed at Bab for a weeks holiday which was very enjoyable. Beautifully decorated in a modern design and lovely comfy rooms. The staff were very polite and helpful and as it was my first time in Marrakech the info the gave us on the local area was very useful. The hotel is well located for getting out and about.

A welcoming and warm hotel, probably one of the best hotels in Marrakech! Rooms are a fantastic size and the whole hotel has a very modern decor.
