Rose Noire
Ranked #10 of 40 Hotels in Ouarzazate
Reviewed 10 July 2014

When my spouse and I looked back on our vacation in Morocco, our stay at the Rose Noise fell into the top 3 for both of us. We were not expecting much out of Ouarzazte, and we were expecting the highly-ranked Rose Noire to be out of our price range. We were actually astounded by the romantic charm of the Rose Noire in the depths of the kasbah and by the affordable pricing.

It was the most atmospheric evening of the trip. We had so much fun winding our way through the half-abandoned kasbah - tourist-free other than us! The views from the flowering roof deck were memorable. And we enjoyed a free concert in the rebuilt art school in the front of the kasbah.

Additionally, we enjoyed being engaged and educated by our hostesses. They opened up to us about their family and local customs like no other hosts during this trip. Not only does staying at the Rose Noire support a women-run business, this was also one of the rare occasions during our stay in Morocco that we had the chance to converse with women. We only wished there was more to do in the city so that we could extend our stay.

Room Tip: Our room was much quieter than we expected, given the late night concert at the art school. Despite...

We changed our plans and ended up in Ouarzazate for the night, we found this road thanks to a 'guide' who followed us around the medina. We decided to stay at around 7pm and we were the only guests. The room was nice and VERY clean. The bathroom was a bit rough (the shower sprayed everywhere and made a puddle on the floor) and the shower head could have been updated...The A/C was not very cold and it took a while to get the room at a decent temperature, but it was ok in the ned.
The terrace is lovely and breakfast is good. A good find!

We arrived in Ouarzazate at night after a long ride on a Supratour bus from Marrakesh. A taxi driver drove us as far as he could and then walked us through narrow pathways to the Rose Noire. The owner greeted us and served us mint tea. We had a room with 3 single beds and we loved the decor, the decor of the room and the property. We wanted a good place to eat and the owner walked us to a restaurant and picked us up to insure we wouldn't get lost. The next day in the light, we were able to navigate our way in and out of the kasbah with ease. On tripadvisor's map, the hotel isn't shown in the right place. Literally, it is in the Kasbah Taourirt, not on the west side of the town. Look at the map on booking.com. There the Rose Noire's location is shown correctly.
The place is clean, the breakfast on the rooftop outdoor terrace was ample(orange juice, yogurt, coffee, bread, crepes, jam and butter), but the owner is what makes this place such a gem. She went out of her way to make sure we got where we were going and that we always had what we want. She is a hard worker, always driving for her guest's satisfaction.
There is air-conditioning which we wish we had used, because we heard a lot of dogs fighting during the night and the roosters got going way too early in the morning.

We stayed at Rose Noire in June 2013 and I have meant to write a review but never got around to it.

This is a lovely place to stay. It is easy to get to, is right in the Kasbah. Rooms are utterly charming. We had a lovely breakfast in the terrace. Everyone was very nice and made us feel most welcome. I have been recommending Rose Noire to other friends traveling to Ouarzazate.
