During a recent stay at the Art Place Hotel, I found the rooms and common areas to be well-maintained and clean. However, I must note that the breakfast fell short of expectations. On a positive note, the staff exhibited exceptional dedication in enhancing our experience. From the highly professional and amiable management and front desk personnel to the diligent housekeeping and maintenance staff, their commitment to service was commendable and greatly contributed to a professional atmosphere.

This is not really a 5 star hotel but more like a 3 star hotel. My rating is based on the fact that over 15 days this was our most expensive and most disappointing Riad. Excluding breakfast and extra charges like water from the mini fridge it cost us 500$ cad per day for a suite. It was impossible to get a fresh pressed juice at breakfast or the bar only powdered juice. The bread at dinner was old stale bread. The service was ok but not at all as good as other places we went. For booking Marrakesh by air they charged us an extra 200$ just to do the booking. The suite was far less impressive than the pictures and lacked attention to details. The pool was freezing. They do not serve alcohol nor any decent non-alcoholic beverage. Disappointing place. I would suggest looking elsewhere as there are so many better options in this area.
