“Decent hotel in a great area”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

This is not a hotel you should go to if you want to get a moroccan feeling. It will be as if you are somewhere in Europe or the US.

The hotel is very conveniently situated in the Hivernage quarter, where many other high end hotels are located, it is close to the main square with a mini taxi. The rooms and bathrooms are spacious, with very modern and minimalist decor. It is clean (although it could be cleaner). The reception/concierge services however were not really up to speed: communication was difficult (even though we spoke good French) and not very helpful in booking an excursion to the desert.

All in all, a decent hotel in a great area - prices during New Year's are pretty high for the value, but during other less busy times I guess it is good value for money.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

Really nice hotel. Clean, simple, friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast the same every morning: a basket of toast, jam, fresh orange juice, coffee, and water. Very reasonable price, overall. Nice location, quiet area (with the exception of the dogs barking as I write this .. and now they’ve stopped), and not crowded, but also close to Jame’el-Fana. I particularly enjoyed having breakfast at the terrace every morning and then coffee. Good Wi-fi in the rooms!
No spa. No laundry service, if you need your shirt pressed, you’ll get it the next day and no iron or ironing board in the room. This is important if you’re here on business and have a meeting to go to. Small, but nice pool on the rooftop of the building.
I rented one of those small motorcycles (or whatever you call them), and was happy to find out there is a security guard 24 hours keeping an eye on it along with a few other motorcycles parked outside.

I visited the bar of Mooi by chance. My boyfriends friends brother works there and having been told it was reletively new I wasnt expecting much. But it was a truly lovely bar area.
When we walked in there was a doorman who was a big hench guy he was friendly and ushered us in. To get to the bar you walk through the restaurant area and we got there around 11.30 so it was closed, but that was still stunning. All fresh white and greys really chilled.
Considering it was a monday nearly midnight and only a handful of people in the bar the atmousphere I felt was great. The DJ kept pumping out some disco classics to keep the mood light the bar staff had a joke with us and did some entertaining bar tricks. Only gripe I have it was so damn cold.
I thought it may have been because I had severe sunburn from being in the countryside all weekend with no shade but when my moroccan friends are grabbing scarves and coats to wear indoors you know its too cold.
But I loved it in there regardless of this.
Everything is personalized. From the traditional table lights to the coasters. The sofas were soft and elegant and I actually found myself nodding off to sleep at about 1am lol! Very relaxing place. Would definately recommend it, just take a cardigan/jumper just in case.
The drinks werent expensive either we had the best bottle of rose and 2 vodkas and it came to 400dh (£15) which we found extremely resonable considering Le Comptoire is across the street and charge 400dh per bottle and 100 per vodka
