Stayed here for 7 days, the hotel is obviously a little worn, the showers were temperamental, but this is Africa, bear in mind how little of its population actally have running water at all, and cut them some slack.
The hotel is in a fairly quiet street next to a great ice cream parlour, not a long walk from a supermarket (which sells cheap booze), near some nice bars and close to a brilliant pizza restaurant. All of this under subdued Moroccan street lights that let you see the stars above you.
The madness of Djemma El Fna is an easy walk via olive and orange tree lined roads, with a great state controlled (and priced) rug and craft shop en route.
This is a very civilised way to experience Marrakech.
This is a cheap hotel in a cheap part of town, it's basic but very clean with nice friendly staff. It IS a bit quirky (the bar full of 'ladies of the night is true'!) but we sat outside and enjoyed beer, chips and harissa over the free wifi. For two blokes on a tourism photo shoot it was a great room share.
Approach with a Western wallet and an African heart!
