I stayed here with my family after a horrific trip into the Sahara where we caught the most nasty stomach bug, the Riad organised a doctor to come to our room and even went to town to get our prescriptions. They went the extra mile by organising a special meal for our dinner to settle our stomachs, everyone there is... More

Le Temple des Arts is a boutique hotel done in the Riad style but with unique decor and exceptional service. Ibrahim will greet you and make sure all your needs are met. Call him ahead if you need directions. Street signs are rare. The chef is great. I had the best lamb chops of the trip. The seasoning on kabobs... More

Hotel is stunning, very special. I definitely recommend it, simply because there is nothing like it probably anywhere. The design is detailed and of very high quality. Service was excellent. It is located 15 minute walk from center of town, but it was OK for us. We ended up taking a cab back and forth.The main problem was food --... More

Dear Mily R. Thank you very much for your gratifying comments on our hotel, and we will be happy to welcome you or your friends again, soon. I would like however to rectify one point: we DO HAVE OUR OWN RESTAURANT, and our Chef, Ahmed, always endeavours to satisfy our clients' wishes, be it Moroccan cuisine or International dishes.

We loved it here but unfortunately it was a short one night stop over between 2 long days of driving. As such it was perfect - so comfortable, beautiful and clean. We were served an amazing dinner which we couldn't do justice to, and had a lovely lovely poolside breakfast. My friend and I shared a beautiful suite so we... More

Breakfast was outdoor by the pool. The staff was fantastic and really did their best to arrange tours for us and more...Ibrahim than you. All in all a five star... More

All the rooms are called after famous movies shot in the region. The rooms are spacious. The house is in the local style. My family and our firends really liked the food, local style. There is a hammam and sauna. The city center is 15 mns away by foot.

Very good hotel, with good service, comfortable rooms and totally decorated with icons of movies filmed in Morocco. Very interesting talk with friends about our rooms. Good restaurant and good hamman as well.

Tucked in a quiet neighborhood this upscale "guest house" has only 7 rooms, all done in a Hollywood theme ( ie Lawrence of Arabia); while the rooms are a bit over the top decor wise, the hotel is excellent with a wonderful staff .... Ali and Ibraham.....are friendly knowledgeable and helpful. Fabulous chef , among the best meals we had... More

While the hotel and rooms are certainly comfortable, the experience is not worth the price (we paid 160 Euros for one night). I found this hotel to be more tacky than kitch, the service is fine but not fantastic and breakfast was average. It was not worth the price we paid. We also had problems with the air conditioning in... More

Dear Sir, I was very sorry to read your comment on the manner our staff has handled your AC problem. I remanded personally the technician in charge who keeps swearing the AC was working properly. But as in many (if not all) Riyads the rooms are located on the upper floor, and therefore just under the roof.so it can sometimes... More
