“poor maintenance”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

Would have been a fair stay if window could have been closed properly. Also - a panel in the bathroom simply fell down on the floor and had to be leaned against the bathtub. Ok for the price but in need of renovation. Maybe its also worth while looking at the safety? And, we would have liked to pay for the breakfast, but most of the food was already gone and noone showed up to clean or replenish, or show us how to pay or write our room number. After a while we just left for breakfast somewhere else and another couple did the same. There you missed some revenue.

Room Tip: At least strive for a reasonable level of maintenance. It's the capital of the union, not a bac...

Friendly staff, excellent generous breakfast, clean room, central location. Would stay every time!
The hotel is within 15 minutes walk of La Bourse. It is in a Moroccan section of the city. Shuttle bus service to town and airport.

Room Tip: Let the hot water run for a while before it heats up.

Rooms aren't modern or clean as advertised. Books a room for two persons but the double bed was crammed in the corner and not fit for two people. I was a pain getting up and out of bed without disturbing my partener. Room was cramped and dirty. Could hear everything in the corridor and from the room next door. TV was not old and small unlike the room pictures on-line. Avoid. Rough area.

This hotel is in a very dodgy part of town.
It is far from public transport.

Checking in was terrible, the person at reception tried to double charge us for the room.
He was also quite rude and abrupt.

The room itself was decent, the shower didn't work properly.
Our room was on the 5th floor but the lift only went to the 4th floor!

Don't stay here.
