“good location but dirty”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2011

on the positive site, this hotel is cheap and has good location in the medina.
unfortunately both room and bathroom very dirty, hair on the linen and cigarettes leftovers in the bathroom. aditionally there was persistant cigarette smell in the room that would not go away even with open balcony door, quiet unpleasant for non smokers.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2010

This place is right in the medina, with a view of the sea and of the medina walls. We had a family room which meant the four of us were a bit squashed in but it was all good fun.

The beds are of the 'make them yourselves' variety and to be honest it was really pretty basic, but at the same time it was very cheap. It was probably more of a hostel than a hotel but in a wonderful location.

There is a breakfast included, but to say this was basic would probably not do justice to the word basic. Skip it I say and go and get some fresh baked goods and a nice cup of coffee our on the streets - much better quality and pretty cheap anyway.

So, I should also point out that there is no lift so if stairs area problem you should bear this in mind. We were on the third floor, which meant great views but a bit of a climb.

Overall, I would recommend this if you don't mind basic accommodation. It's an adventure after all.
