Palais Sebban is a guest house in the medina, Marrakesh's old city and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. According to Lonely Planet, the medina "is an ideal place to explore private palaces and riad mansions, many of which now provide the city's most atmospheric accommodation".
The Daily Telegraph says that the souks (markets) in the medina "have an enduring appeal", and Palais Sebban is a short stroll from Jamaa el Fna -- the area's main square and market place. It's also within a 10-minute walk of some of the city's other attractions, including the Koutoubia Minaret mosque, which has a 70-metre high tower. The colourful Jardin Majorelle (once owned by Yves Saint-Laurent) is 2.3 kilometres from the hotel.
An on-site restaurant specialises in regional cuisine and its garden terrace is the perfect setting for leisurely breakfasts (included in the rate). There's also an outdoor pool, a spa offering a range of treatments and a sauna, plus a bar, a lounge, a coffee shop and a snack bar.
There are 25 Moroccan-style bedrooms. You might end up in Atlas, Volubilis or Oudaya -- all uniquely decorated and featuring mini bars, air conditioning, bathrobes and slippers. Satellite TV is available on request, and some suites have private terraces. Previous guests have commented on the authentic decor.
Wi-Fi is free in public areas and room service is available.
