This luxurious spa hotel is housed in a modern Marrakech building, in the heart of the city. A recent renovation has given the interiors here an attractive nip and tuck, breathing a stylish new life into Hivernage Hotel & Spa. Traditional materials have been used to their best effect, creating an authentic and sophisticated ambience that extends throughout the hotel.
Just a short walk from the Jamaa el Fna, this getaway makes an ideal base from which to explore the winding market streets of the old city. Spend your days strolling among the souks, visiting museums or gazing over palaces, before heading back to enjoy the hotel’s spa, where and massage facilities are available. There’s also a restaurant and bar, serving international and Moroccan cuisine.
For your comfort and serenity, Hivernage Hotel & Spa guest rooms blend Zen spirit with rich traditional materials. All are equipped with modern comforts and state-of-the-art technologies, including air conditioning, a safe box, Wi-Fi and a LCD satellite TV, to name but a few.
Hivernage Hotel & Spa boasts two outstanding restaurants. Under Chef Christophe Leroy, La Table du Marche serves exquisite creative dishes. You can also enjoy a pre-diner drink; The Boudoir and MySky welcome guests in a contemporary décor.
Payot Spa is dedicated to well-being, inviting you to relax in the hammam or with a soothing massage. There’s also a well-equipped fitness room (if you must!).
Jemaa el Fna, a lively square which bursts with energy when night falls, is just a short walk away, and the Medina lies a little further beyond. You’re also walking distance from Majorelle Gardens and Koutoubia Mosque, as well as delightful restaurants, like Le Table du Marché.
How to Get There
We ate here one evening in a lovely covered terrace. The food was wonderful - my husband raved about his monkfish stew, I loved my chicken, served on a wooden board - . The service was great, the atmosphere was wonderful and we thoroughly loved it.
I stayed at this hotel with some family. The rooms are spacious with huge beds and the air conditioning works well. The toilet is dimly lit to the point you can’t really see in the daytime. Need brighter bulbs! My room had a damp smell and the external door to the verandah did not lock at all. But the worst of it is the noise! The noise coming from the street at night is SO loud. Cars, people, music, horns, bikes the lot! I slept with earplugs to help block it out. I think for the price you pay you could find better accommodation. It’s more like a 3 star hotel than a 5.
We have recently stayed at the Hivernage for six night on a business trip. There was no water for 24h on our first day :( These things can happen I understand but the way the management as well as the staff at the front desk were handling the situation was unacceptable. No water bottles (to at least brush teeth or wash hands) were offered. No one seemed to be responsible and when asked for a solution (e.g. the possibility to cancel the booking) or compensation we were either ignored, not listened to or put off with lame excuses such as manager in a meeting, manager doesn't answer phone, etc..... Apart from that there were simply way too many other nuisances to deal with in order for this hotel to be considered 5 star: - no towels at the gym, musty smell in bathroom, limited variety at the breakfast bar, rude and arrogant staff at the front, just to name a few.....
Im a frequent traveler and I often stay in Marrakech. This has definitely been the worst stay so far. If you are used to stay in 5 star hotels you will most likely be disappointed.
