Been to N Africa before and love to be in the centre but that can be overwhelming. We didn't want to stay in the more soulless new area though and this hotel turned out to be perfect. It's a 5 minute walk from Jemaa El Fna and the sights and sounds of the city but once you go in it's an absolute haven. We were upgraded to a suite in the new part, which was huge, spotless and beautifully decorated Moroccan style- there was even an indoor fountain and rose petals were put everywhere. Sheets changed daily and service across the board was polite and very smiley. There are 3 restaurants- we were half board and it was a very good deal. Few issues for a vegetarian coeliac but I had a lot of omelettes and veggie tajines, Indian restaurant was particularly good too. We had great weather for Jan and the heated pool on 3rd floor was a blessing as was the Clarins Spa. We did a couple of trips with a guide via the hotel which were just us so pretty laid back- 2 long days, 1 into Atlas Mountains and 1 to Essouiria. They were good value and well worth the drives which were in very comfy 4 wheel drives. Loved the souks as ever and also the Marjorelle Gardens and a day of tombs, storks and palaces- got lost but no-one anything but helpful. I reckon there is far less hassle then 10 years ago and people are just trying to make a living. A lot of smiling and polite thank yous go a long way wherever you are in the world. Did but some great bargains from tin makers square too and fabulous week away at miserable time of year.
