non-smoking hostels in Marrakech?

hi, i was wondering if anyone knows of any COMPLETELY non-smoking hostels in Marrakech? (meaning that smoking is not allowed in the rooms, NOR in the common rooms, the entire building is smoke-free?) i am asking ONLY about hostels, and only hostels that have private rooms. I am not asking about hotels.

also:

does anyone know if Rainbow Marrakech is non-smoking?

how about Hostel Riad Marrakech Rouge, non-smoking?

Are we talking tobacco here? ;)

The answer to your questions will be no. Maybe a higher priced establishment, but not a hostel.

Tim: Yes, tobacco, ha.

are there atleast hostels that dont allow smoking in the bedrooms? Even if they allow it in the common rooms.

Any info on Rainbow or Rose?

Hi,

The easiest way to find an answer is maybe to send a message via their profiles to a couple of reviewers of each hostel asking your specific question.

Good luck but I'd be surprised if you find a completely non smoking hostel in Morocco (the staff are likely to be smokers after all).

Not exactly a No Smoking establishment but, as a non smoker who hates inhaling other people's cigarette smoke and the stale smells that linger in bedrooms, I can recommend Hotel Cecil which is located behind Café Glacier on the Djemaa el Fna Square.

I've now stayed there a couple of times and found it to be airy and clean enough not to be a problem.

A rather strange comment boringFS as good old Boris has just announced that London is the most polluted city/town in the UK. Secondary smoking is a tiny problem compared to the health damaging effects of road traffic. This is an emotive argument and not a scientific one (often promoted by ex-smokers!) Frankly the anti smoking brigade will find Morocco uncomfortable where the majority of folks and their grannies smoke! I am not saying that this is a good thing (speaking as a former ex-smoker but not of the proselytising type) and tobacco smoking is on the slight decrease here.

Pilobolus2011 - if your comment re London and smoking/pollution is a reflection on my location then you will have to take it with TA as I cannot get my true location to register!

To be honest, I did not find Marrakech too bad when it came to smokers and smoking - in the streets, souks, restaurants etc - but that may be partly because I'm used to Egypt which is far worse. Also that fact that you can be outside so much, including eating out, helps.

Jw - I believe some, but not all, of the rooms do have airconditionig. Having stayed in both October and March I've not needed it for heat or cool, although when it was warm having a window that opens out onto the inner court yard was a bonus. Take a look at the website and if you have questions email them. My review on TA can be found here headed 'Ticks all the right boxes':
