On the positive side: the location of Hotel Imouzzer is excellent, just moments away from the main square but as soon as you enter the alleyway the noise is gone. The roof top terrace gets sunshine all day long – perfect for breakfast in the morning, relaxing in the afternoon, and sampling the fantastic cooking for dinner (the best prune and almond tagine all trip). The female staff in particular were excellent, the cooking and cleaning was to a very high and friendly level. At 120 dirham (about 12 euros) for a room for the two of us, it was extremely cheap, and the room was spacious and clean enough. They were happy for us to leave our bags the day we checked out, and then to kill some time on the rooftop before catching our flight.
On the downside: one shower between about 10 rooms on each floor (potentially 20 people) is just not enough. Although the shower was cleaned regularly, the hot water and water pressure were unreliable, and a couple of days we just didn’t bother battling the shower and visited Hammam Ziani down the road instead. The owner (manager?) wasn’t particularly interested in helping us with organising day trips or transport, or giving recommendations for things like a place for my husband to have a wet shave – this was a real shame as we would have loved a local to suggest some places to us.
Two tips: although bed linen is provided, towels are not, so pack your own. And while there’s no air con during summer, there’s no heating during winter so the nights get very cold. Blankets are provided, but pack your flannelette pjs too.
