MY friend and I stayed in this hotel as a cheap city break option. It served its purpose. We opted for half board which I do not necessarily recommend , especially not for vegetarians. The meal was a set menu of salad and bread, soup ( often fish with no veg option) followed by vegetae tagine or cous cous. This gets a bit repetative so we ended up eating out 2 nights. The desserts were disappointing - usually a piece of fruit on a plate.
On a more positive note the breakfast buffet, whilst it was th same everyday, there was enough to choose from for it of be varied. There was bread, cheese, pancakes , cakes, cereal omelettes etc.
The location was ok, easy to get taxis from the corner on the. Main road into the medina. Taxi takes abiut 10 mins and costs sround 50dh. The new town is just round the corner with lots of bars and restaurants. Check out 'cheese me ' literally round the corner!
We upgraded to room 12 and it was quite nice. Beds were really firm but I like that so sleety really well. I sleep in ear plugs butmy friend doesn't. She saidthenoise from the reception area below was quite disruptive night.
The staff were a mixed bag. One female member of staff couldn't have Been more helpful. She gave directions , booked trips etc. one waiter was also very nice. However there was one male member of reception staff was simply unpleasant. I couldn't work out if he disliked women, tourists or life in general. He's the one wearing glasses ... You will know when meet him... He will look at you with thinky vailed distain.
The decoration throught is lovely And traditional. You feel like you're in morrocco as opposed to a multi-national hotel chain. It has character.
The pool doesn't getmuch sunlight do didn't get heated up adequately the whole time were there. That said it was only early April.
On the whole, I'd say go board and breakfast only, eat out at night and defiantly take the trip into the Berber villages arranged through reception. It's nice to get out if the city and it was highlight of my trip. The Atlas Mountains were breathtaking.
