Hotel Rating: *****
Hotel Address: Rue Abou Abbas El Sebti, Medina, Marrakesh, 40000 Marrakesh, Marocco
Our oppinion: For sure one of the best hotels in Africa! This magnificent hotel was built at the behest of Morocco’s King Mohammed VI with a undisclosed, but evidently immense, budget. La Grande Table Française Restaurant, already held to be the best French restaurant in Africa. As a monumental work of art, the Royal Mansour is on a par with the best Marrakech has to offer, which is quite an achievement.
