“(Not very) Panoramic restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

Perched on top of a neighboring hotel, this was recommended to us for the food and the view - unfortunately, neither was to be enjoyed: it was pouring cats and dogs, and the whole dining experience was compromised by the chocking smoke enveloping the entire dining area from the open kitchen and grilling area. The service was extremely lacking: both efficiency and courtesy; the grilled combo my husband ordered was dry, overdone and charred; my vegetable tajine was bland and the vegetables were soggy. As no alcohol is served in most restaurants in Morocco, there was nothing to dilute the forgettable experience.

Lesson learned! The second night, we made a lovely picnic of Moroccan wine, local cheeses, sausages, artisan bread and juicy fruits. So much more enjoyable.

We stayed here two nights with family of four in august 2012. The rooms are clean and spacious but the hotel has little atmosphere. More like a business hotel. It is located far away from the medina. Restaurant is good and staff is friendly. They have a very small garage for cars if needed.

This hotel is typically "a corner of heaven" in this busy area of the Nouvelle Ville,in Fez.
Such a warm welcome (un acceuile vraiment chalereux) made me feel very comfortable to know that I am in the company of genuinely nice & friendly people.
I was on half-board and was lodged in a lovely clean room with large windows and good lighting facing the streets down below.
Fresh towels were provided daily.Warm showers available.The cleaning staff was very polite & helpful at all times.The meals were very well prepared by a very professional chef and served by excellent dining room personnel.
Breakfast buffet-style consisted of a variety of croissants,brioches,cakes and fruit.Hot & cold drinks available.The pleasant aromatic smell of coffee welcome the guests to breakfast.Tea with fresh mint was a special delicacy enjoyed my many.
I intend to visit again.I thank ALL the staff for their generous effort to make my stay a happy one.Sayda at the reception offered me good advice and spent time chatting with me although she was always very busy in her role.I treasure this memory of meeting her.She is a caring person and truly dedicated to her work at the hotel.

The hotel was pretty okay... not especially fancy but it was clean and you get a couple channels on your tv... Don't pay for breakfast... it's DISGUSTING... Do go to Marrarech restaurant, one block away for delicious food. Pretty quiet area by the way.

Hotel is located in Ville Nouvelle, not really within walking distance from the medina, as opposed to what the LP said. We usually paid 20 dirhams for 2p for a petit taxi (meter price plus tip) to the medina. During our stay we saw many tour groups and busses at the hotel, but that didn't bother us. Room was cleaned every day and fresh towels are supplied. Breakfast include tea, coffee and fresh eggs and pancakes. For dinner I would recommend using the LP for tips; we certainly did and we found it to be very useful and accurate. We went to an cybercafe nearby to check emails, much cheaper than using it at the hotel.
For a hammam experience, we went to Nausika Spa in the ville nouvelle, which we found to be very good. Although it has a modern interior, the treatments on offer were authentic and good value for money (180 dirhams for a scrub, a body wrap, towels, bathrobe and slippers plus unlimited use of sauna facilities). I saw only moroccan women there during my treatment, which I took to be a good sign.

A few steps away from the main drag, the rooms are immaculate if a bit small. In may we got a triple room for 462 Dh, which turned out to be the most comfortable room we have had on this trip. Ok breakfast, great towels, but no free wifi. A dodgy area at night compared to the rest of morocco as there are a lot of bars around.

Not a lot has changed. The same mildly unfriendly/aloof female staff are still on reception, however the wait staff and house keeping are friendly. The standard of cleanliness is excellent.
One cleaner was particularly diligent as I was unwell on arrival and she got me a small bucket in case I was sick again. She quietly popped into my room every hour or so and went beyond the call of duty ensuring I was okay and did not require extra assistance (she even emptied and cleaned the little bucket!).
Wifi works well in the lounge area and discovered by accident that it also works from some of the bedrooms. They do charge however it is not expensive.
