This is a small, family run budget hotel but for the price, you couldn't ask for a better location, service, or room. It's very conveniently located to the main Jemma el Fna square right outside of the medina wall and close to the royal palace. It's nice that it's not in the maze of the souks yet it's still very central and really close to everything. It's even more convenient if you do one of the many overnight tours out to the Sahara as the drop off point for the vans happens around the corner from the hotel. The hotel helped us book a 2 night 3 day tour to Ait Ben Haddou and the desert and the price was the same as all the tour hawkers around the square so you know they aren't overcharging. During our stay, we met the owner Hamid (an American so he speaks perfect English), a very warm and friendly English speaking woman who worked during the day, and a lovely French speaking gentleman who was there on the night shift. Hamid helped me make a reservation at a private hammam and also had recommendations for public hammams for my friend who wanted a more local experience. He's very caring and friendly, as is the woman who gave us a free map of the city and tips on where to go since we had arrived on a very last minute trip with minimal research. There's no breakfast at the hotel as there isn't a restaurant, but there are lots of cafes just down the street serving delicious Moroccan crepes and breads for about 5-10 dirhams (about 70 cents to $1.25) and the night market is a must try for dinner anyway! The rooms all have air conditioning, TVs, crisp clean sheets, and fluffy monogrammed towels. There are minimal amenities and the bathroom was small (just a shower with a curtain and no tub) but everything is very clean and again, it's definitely a great deal for the price. The bed was large and comfortable with free wireless even in the rooms and the decor of the common spaces was like a riad. I highly recommend this hotel for someone looking to save on hotel costs--you couldn't ask for a better mix of offerings!
