We arrived by train, then taxi; since owner Laurant emailed that they had been having problems sending their driver to the train station. Just be aware that taxis do not use a meter, you have to bargain for a fair price. Used my GPS to navigate to the hotel along narrow alleys, about 5 minute walk from where the taxi let us off at Palais Bahia.
It is a beautiful restored and well cared-for building with only 9 rooms. Our room was on the top floor, and opened onto the roof-top terrace. Breakfast was on the terrace each morning, with fresh breads, yogurt, juice, coffee/tea, eggs cooked to order.
There is a large common area on the ground floor with library (mostly French), computer, fireplace, bar, eating area. There is a small mosque next door, but the calls to prayer are not too loud. A large bird (crane?) has set up a big nest at the top of the mineret, but we only saw it twice.
Laurent, Jacques, and the other staff are friendly and very helpful. They helped with dinner reservations and directions; even took us to the spice market next door to find a small purchase we needed.
