My wife and I went on a short break to Fes,and saw that this place was highly recommended. Yes, location was great. But other than that it is beyond me why this ranks 3rd best place. The staff are lovely, truly very nice and hospitable people, but the service was nothing to sing home about, and more importantly our room was cramped, dark and tiny! It was a struggle to get all the way around the bed. On our last day, we had a peak through the doors of another room which was being cleaned and it was alot bigger than ours so perhaps we pulled the short straw.
I was miserable staying here, it also felt dirty. The bed linen itself was washed daily but the blanket wasn't and smelt like it too. It wasn't what I was hoping for or expecting. And the bathroom always stank! Of stagnant water!
And the last point to add was the complete lack of any sound-proofing. Every morning we would wake to the loud chatter of the staff ladies at 7 am! And then all the guests as they would wake up!
A very very disappointing stay.
