The entrance is in a cement wall in an unprepossessing street. Once inside, though, the place is a Tardis-like revelation. There are large rooms, a peaceful central courtyard with a fountain, tables and nooks with sofas.
The restaurant, also in an atrium, has a retractable roof three storeys above. Breakfast is half buffet (fruit, pastries, the usual stuff) and half cooked to order (omelettes, pancakes, eggs as you want them). Dinner was also good, typical Moroccan food.
Our room was large, very clean and very quiet. There were rose petals artistically scattered on the huge four-poster bed. The bathroom had a bath and separate shower. There was a comfortable sofa and a TV which had all the main UK channels, not just BBC News.
There's a decent-sized swimming pool which gets sun for most of the day, despite being in a walled garden.
The staff were friendly, charming and attentive. Some spoke a little English (as well as French and Arabic); one, Tom, is English and very helpful.
