The Hotel Ali is what might euphemistically be termed 'a character hotel', and a 'character builder' of all those who dwell within! The surprising number of returnees suggests that the Ali does, in fact, 'grow' on many people after a while. This place struck me as a hybrid between the old Chungking Mansions in Hong Kong and the Hotel Sultan... More

I visited this hotel last week after 3 years and they recognised me then asked after my son ! there is an army of cleaners who work relentlessly to keep the place proper clean. The location is great for getting away from the square as well as experiencing the square. Not sure i thought there had been an upgrade of... More

I stayed at this hotel a few years ago, but only recently joined TripAdvisor. But, I had to write a review about this hotel and their poor food hygiene. I was served a raw egg omelet for breakfast which I forwent. But at the dinner time served beautifully on the roof, the food was less than recognizable and of poor... More

I spent 3 nights at this hotel as part of a tour of Morocco (the hotel was not my choice). The first room I was in was really poor, lights hanging out of the ceiling, shower didn't work and the toilet leaked. However the second and third nights were in a different room and it was much better, of a... More

Stayed at Hotel Ali for 1 night before and 1 night after an Atlas Mountain trek. I guess if it had been really bad we wouldn't have gone back there after the trek! My single room on 1st stay had 3 beds in it which I never really worked out why and second time I had a double bed so... More

I was just there last week for 3 nights and I mainly stay there for the location (literally in the Djemaa Al Fna square) and cheap rates. Pro: rooms are clean staff are generally nice cheap rate best location Con: during summer, it appears they are timing/controlling the room AC so you have to ask the receptionist to turn it... More

we didn't stay at the hotel. The owner of our riad recommended eating at the Hotel Ali but the lady on reception informed us that the restaurant closed over a year ago. We changed our money up in the bureau de change here and found the best rates.

No frills at the Hotel Ali. It's run-down, but rooms are en-suite and clean. Try that in France - heh heh. Bed linen and towels may be well-worn, but for 15 Euros a night, what do you expect! However where this hotel scores is the friendly and helpful (French speaking) staff. They can organize anything for you. It also offers... More

The reason you would stay at this hotel is the location. It is right beside the Djemaa el-fna. The room itself is very, very basic. The room has a bed and bathroom... that's it. Very rough, worn and thread-bare towels are given to you at the front desk. The tub had a shower curtain that was two inches too short... More
