“Some standard features but a unique hotel within a unique location.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2011

Attached to the Atlas Films studios the hotel has a unique atmosphere unlike any other and does it best to show off its cinema history and provide a relaxing contempory mood. Rooms are clean but basic and the quality of your bathroom and number of TV channels can be luck of the draw. At around 3km outside Ouarzazate you will need a car for most journey but it should also be noted that taxi are cheap as chips.

Communal areas are very nice with a lot made of its cinema pedigree with signed photos and movie props in abundance. The restaurant offers a good mix of international favourites from bolognese to burgers alongside traditional Moroccan dishes. Drinks can be a little pricey but the movie themed 'Gladiator' bar makes up for it.

The main appeal comes from being in a hotel in a working film studio and luck find you sharing with cast and crew you can soak up the exiting work of film making.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2010

I stayed at this hotel for one night en route to the desert. The hotel's facilities were exactly what we were looking for - the hotel was basic but comfortable. The hotel is located on the outskirts of Ouarzazate, right next door to Atlas Studios. Apart from the studio, the hotel is not convenient to the sights or amenities of Ouarzazate and it would be difficult to get around without a car.

We also had a problem with noise on the property - a very large school group was staying on the property on the same night we were there. This group took over the hotel and was making a lot of noise around the pool area very late into the night. Hotel staff were there but didn't do anything about it, even after I complained. Noise really travels in the desert!

However the hotel was just what we were looking for as a comfortable place to stay for the night.
