Stayed here for one night before moving on to Essaouira on the coast and boy was it a pleasant surprise. Hard to find tucked away down the back streets it took a while to find but well worth it when we arrived. Beautiful and ornate, totally unique feel to the place, the photos don't do it justice. Ishmael the manager was extremely friendly and helpful, he advised us on the best places to eat and then walked with us through the winding back streets to the main square to ensure that we didn't get lost, pointing out navigation points on the way so that we could find our way back again.
Breakfast, which we ate in the sunshine on the roof with its views of the city and the mountains, was outstanding, a huge tray of breads, cakes, fruit, homemade yoghurts and preserves, scrambled eggs etc, really delicious with lots of fresh orange juice cocktails and copious teas and coffees.
There is a small minibar in each room for those that are interested.
The level of detail in the architecture and the decor is outstanding and really makes this place special. We wandered around for most of the morning oohing and aahing at the walls and the paintings etc, really rather wonderful.
