Fodor's Expert Review Les Jardins de la Koutoubia

26, rue de la Koutoubia, Marrakesh, Marrakesh-Safi, Morocco

Despite its location on an unprepossessing street, this hotel is in the heart of the action and has a rather grand and opulent interior that cannot fail to impress. The carved pillars of the garden give the air of an ancient temple, with four salons around an enormous, heated pool and a giant fireplace at one end. The Ambassador suite has great views of the medina and nearby Koutoubia Mosque, but most of the rooms look upon the inner garden and pool area. Elegant sitting rooms, a cigar room, a piano bar, and an additional outdoor heated pool on the roof add to the hotel's charms. There are also plenty of in-house dining options with the Moroccan Koutoubia restaurant as well as Indian and French options. Guests can enjoy the rooftop pool and the hammam with aromatic spa treatments.

With easy access and elevators, this is a good choice for anyone with mobility issues.
