ACCOMMODATION TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Please read these booking terms and conditions carefully as they apply to all bookings made with L’Hôtel Marrakech.
Reservation staff have discretion to vary these terms and conditions to meet clients’ requirements, for example if a group needs time to collect deposits to secure a whole riad booking, or if there is a specific need to vary cancellation policy. Any variation must be agreed in writing before a deposit is paid, confirmation issued and a binding contract comes into existence.
To make a booking, please check availability by completing the online booking form, making clear the number of people in your party and your preferred travel dates.

The contract is subject to these booking terms and conditions and to the law of Morocco.
Once the contract is made, it is L’Hôtel Marrakech’s responsibility to provide you with what you have booked and it is your responsibility to pay for the accommodation. If you fail to do so, your booking may be cancelled and you will be liable to pay cancellation charges.
All relevant documentation will be sent to you via email. It is important to check carefully all the details of your booking once you receive it and to contact us immediately if you have any queries. L’Hôtel Marrakech will not be responsible for any information you do not receive, as a result of your failure to provide a valid e-mail address.
If you want to cancel or amend your booking at a later date, you may have to pay cancellation or amendment fees; these could be as much as the whole cost of accommodation.
It is strongly recommended that you and all members of your party have adequate travel insurance to cover the cost of cancellation, curtailment, medical, repatriation expenses, loss of luggage, personal effects, damages, personal injury and money/valuable belongings. L’Hôtel Marrakech will not be responsible for any loss or damage of guest’s property left in guest’s room and/or the riad at any time.
Our Price Guarantee
Prices on our website do change from time to time; prices can go up as well as down and you will be able to determine your up to date price for your chosen accommodation prior to confirming your booking. Please note once you have agreed a price and made your booking this is the price you pay. If the price decreases, you are not entitled to the accommodation at the changed rate.
L’Hôtel Marrakech will not accept bookings from minors. You must be 18 years of age or over and have legal capacity. L’Hôtel Marrakech does not accommodate minors (a person under the age of 18), unless the hotel is reserved privately, in its’ entirety.
If you have any special requests that do not form part of the standard accommodation services as described in this website (for example dietary needs) please let us know before booking. We will endeavour to satisfy such requests, but unfortunately these cannot be guaranteed.
Regrettably, the old city of Marrakech, with its very narrow streets and ancient buildings, does not lend itself to disabled access. L’Hôtel Marrakech has no lift meaning that access to the upper parts of the riad, including the roof garden and terraces, is accessible by stairs only.
Please note that smoking is not permitted in the riad’s suites. Smoking is permitted in certain outdoor areas.
Please note that L’Hôtel Marrakech operates a strict no pets policy.
If You Want to Cancel Your Booking
Reservations must be cancelled 12pm 7 days prior to arrival or the deposit will be retained and not refunded. No show charge is 100 percent of the full stay including tax.
Cancellations notified directly to the accommodation will not be effective. All cancellations or amendments must be made directly to L’Hôtel Marrakech in writing by the person who made the original booking.
If We Change Your Accommodation
Every effort is made to provide arrangements as confirmed to you. However, certain changes may be made to the accommodation and services resulting from, for example, maintenance of the property, weather conditions, local religious holidays and so on.
Where necessary, L’Hôtel Marrakech reserves the right to change your accommodation to an alternative of the same or superior standard within Marrakech. If it is not possible to confirm a suitable alternative, L’Hôtel Marrakech reserves the right to cancel the booking and an email notification will be sent to inform you of the details.
Number of Nights
Check in is from 1.00 pm and check out is 12.00 pm. The number of nights stated in the booking confirmation refers to the number of nights the accommodation has been reserved for you. Some flights may be night flights; when you arrive in Marrakech your accommodation will only be available if you have reserved it for that night.
When you book accommodation, you accept responsibility for any damage to property or to the riad caused by you or a member of your party. L’Hôtel Marrakech reserves the right to terminate your stay or that of any member of your party if, in the reasonable opinion of the manager, the guest’s behaviour is such as to cause damage to the property or to adversely affect the enjoyment of other guests. In these circumstances, full cancellation charges will apply and no refund will be given. Furthermore, L’Hôtel Marrakech shall be under no obligation to pay compensation or meet any costs or expenses you may incur as a result of your stay being terminated. You will be liable to make reimbursement to L’Hôtel Marrakech for any damage caused, before you end your stay.

Health, Safety & Security Abroad
Morocco is a Muslim country which follows Islamic laws and customs. Be aware of your actions to ensure they don’t offend, especially during the holy month of Ramadan or if you intend to visit religious areas. You should respect local traditions, customs, laws and religions at all times.
Sadly, crimes against both people and their property are a fact of life the world over, and when in Marrakech it is very important to be vigilant and avoid drawing attention to yourself by wearing expensive jewellery, carrying expensive camera equipment etc. Travellers have the same responsibility for their personal safety and that of their possessions, as they do at home. We urge that you undertake reasonable precautions to protect your family and yourself whilst on holiday. Guests use the swimming pool and pool area at L’Hôtel Marrakech entirely at their own risk. To make the most of your trip abroad, check the Foreign & Commonwealth Office website.
Health & Vaccinations
Health facilities, hygiene and disease vary worldwide. You should take health advice about your specific needs as early as possible and ensure that vaccinations or preventative measures are taken early enough to be fully effective by the date of travel.
