This hotel is like one big run down derelict building.. There was literally no other guests, room size was fine, but was filthy, cockroaches all over the room, shower was like something you'd find in an outhouse in the outback of Western Australia. Really, place needs to be demolished and rebuilt,.. They had no breakfast, cafe across the street was... More

The placing of the hotel is very good, so is the decoration. My room was spacy, and there's where the positive impression stops. The door doesn't close, unless you lock the door. The bathroom can be used, when you love showering cold water. Complains have to be made 4 times before any action is undertaken. The first promise lead to... More

I had an opportunity to spend 4 days in Sahara hotel which turned out to be a perfect place - very quiet but located at the same time in the very centre of the city, between medina and the beach. The whole hotel has a nice Moroccan style, rooms are big enough with lovely deco while very cheap, and finally... More

Was a really pleasant stay in a clean room with bathroom. Fast wifi, roof terrace and great location just next to the tower clock. Minutes from the beach and meters from the medina. Common room with tables and a huge tv downstairs. The hotel well looked after.

As a veteran traveller in Maroc I have used Hotel Sahara for about a decade and will long continue, Inshallah! It used to to be quite budget with a slightly sinister "Sddenly Last summer" ethos about it and provided a no-nonsense tartine petit dejeuner once upon a time but alas no longer. Sahara has had a major and quite endearing... More

I shared a room with two friends when we were going the "super cheap" route for lodging. I admit I am a wuss when it comes to budget lodging. The rooms were very basic and it took awhile for the hot water to reach a warm state. My two friends used the shower prior to me and couldn't get any... More

We stayed in May. This is an odd hotel; they do not seem to be much interested in doing business: it has about 60 rooms of which 4 or 5 seemed occupied. No breakfast was available, but that was no hardship as breakfast next door is fine. This hotel has obviously seen better days and I'd imagine it was once... More

Was on a Travemood tour of Morocco ( recommended - brilliant holiday ) who book you and your travel mates into the locations you land up in en route around Morocco. Arrived at Essouira and went straight to hotel reception where we filled out duplicates of personal details on small pieces of white card to register. Location couldn't be beaten... More

I went to Agadir for two weeks from 25 January to 8 February 2008, travelling on my own with relaxation in mind although the trip was to include a stay in Essaouira sometime in between. After one week in Agadir I headed to Essaouira by Supratours coach, not as luxurious as some reports lead one to believe though. In Essaouira... More
