The hotel was right in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the locals. Me and my husband stayed there for three nights at the end of april. We had a smooth check in, and drank mint tea while we waited. We were shown to our room by Hassan. He upgraded us from the standard room the superior room. The room was big however it had a funny smell! the shower was over a bath tub. and the shower was not even head height so you had to hold the shower head, there was a glass door shielding the water however the water went everywhere when my husband has a shower, the water even went upto the door and into the room!!
There was a Mcdonalds 10minute walk away, and a pizza hut further down. We ended up going on a long walk one day, stopped for some where to eat and then we saw the minerat of the mosque so we walked and walked in that directions for a couple of hours ( we obviously got lost!!) eventually we ended up at jemaa el fna market, it took forever because we didn't know the route but it was fun and we even helped a japanese tourist find the market as well.
We ended up getting a horse and cart back to the hotel which cost us 150dh which took around 20minutes.
The area around the hotel wasn't safe at night, we were walking back from mcdonalds around midnight and were stopped by police (who didn't speak english) to ask us if we were okay. We were confused and said we were fine. Later on i remembered three men walking behind us before the police stopped and they dissapeared afterwards I think the police thought we were about to get mugged. So luckily the police were there at that minute!!!
Breakfast was dissapointing, they gave you once glass of orange juice at your table and then after that you had to keep asking, No one offered us a hot drink on the first day. All i ate was bread as nothing else was edible. I felt like we didn't feel welcome, as if it was a chore for the staff.
Overall, the hotel was clean and nice, bed was comfy although a little small for us as it was a double so my husband didn't sleep!
