Hotel Le Caspien: not bad, except for breakfast Nov 23, 2010
Hotel Le Caspien is a nice hotel. It started off very well. We arrived at 11am and got our room right away. On the third floor, nice and quiet with a little balcony.
The people working at the hotel are friendly, but not all of them understand and speak English well. If you speak French, you won't have any trouble.
Le Caspien is located a 30 minute walk to the Medina, the old city center of Marrakech. You don't have to walk if you don't want. There are many taxis waiting for you. Taxis bring you every where in a few minutes. But you can also take a horse and carriage. It's up to you.
A big supermarket is located a ten minute walk from the hotel and the famous Jardins de Majorelle is a 20 minute walk.
The modern part of the city (La Hivernage) with clubs, bars and expensive restaurants is half an hour walk aswell.
Breakfast was very good the first day: bread, cake, pancakes, omelets, potatoes, yoghurt and fruit. Coffee, tea, milk, hot choco and fresh juice. There is no meat or cheese.
But every day something was missing and the last day there was only eggs, fruit and cake. A disappointment. This should have been a lot better. Breakfast was included for us.
We had dinner twice. The steak, fish and pizza were very good. Same as the desserts. The lemon pie with ice cream was yummi!!! Prices are similar to European restaurants. Price-quality was fine. You can have dinner here even when you're not staying at the hotel. The service is quick and friendly.
When the kitchen is in use, you can smell it through the whole hotel. The ventilation of kitchen is no good.
We had a double room with two single beds. The beds were fine and the sheets are clean. There is a small balcony. The bathroom is really small, but clean. There is a TV and AC, but it was switched off because it was not hot enough to use.
The hotel is noisy, because there is no isolation between the rooms. You can hear your neighbours talking, flushing the toilet and so on. It wasn't ennoying, but I can imagine that it can be, when the hotel is busy.
There is a small swimmingpool. We did not use it, but it seemed clean.
There is no internet and the hotel does not book tours for you.
The hotel is not really cheap if you book by yourself. We booked a package at a travel agency which included a return fligh, and that was not so expensive.
If you don't mind to walk a lot and don't mind a crappy breakfast, this hotel is a nice place to stay while you are in Marrakech.

Hotel le Caspien Overview
The Hotel Le Caspien is located in the town centre of Marrakech near the central market and principal historic buildings of Medina and the palace of Jamaa El Fna. The hotel has 36 fully air conditioned rooms with private bathroom, satellite TV, telephone, safety deposit box and terrace. The Hotel Le Caspien boasts great on site facilities including on site restaurant, breakfast buffet, cafeteria, fresh water swimming pool and terrace with free deck chairs and parasols.
Caspien hotel is the one to book as the owner of the hotel made a point of keeping the oriental authenticity in the decoration. Indeed the stairwells and corridors are covered with traditional mosaics, there is a water feature with floating fresh rose petals in the lobby area, and the restaurant "El Medina" serves typical Moroccan dishes such as Tagines, Cousous and more.
The 36 bedrooms are decorated in different colours and provide the guest with the usual facilities one can find in a 3-star superior hotel. And last but not least, the location in the heart of Gueliz means that it only takes a few minutes to walk to the vibrant Jemaa El Fna square which is the starting point of Marrakech "souks" (markets) during the day, and becomes a gigantic restaurant with plenty of different stalls serving all sorts of food for ridiculously low prices!
