Not up to the European or American standards for 3* but adequate for a quick cheap break. Rooms are small and chilly and could do with a lick of paint. Bathroom was tiny but the water was hot and plentiful. Reception was dark but wifi friendly, only part of the hotel that was. Breakfast left a lot to be desired,... More

The hotel itself was fine-- very plain, in the new city. We stayed there because it was easier to get to the airport, which worked fine. However, the service was terrible. We needed to use a printer to print out boarding pass, and the staff was incredibly unhelpful. It was a bit of a last minute dash for us, and... More

I spent 2 nights here, and i cannot complian too much, but it is really basic. Shower without curtain, wifi sometimes working, sometimes not. Breakfast just ok. Personnel forgot to book me the taxi for the early departure (the man who had to book it was sleeping in the morning). Taxis are available any time, so no really need to... More

So, I'm not too sure I have anything good to say. Reception staff are rude and unhelpful. Rooms are basic, could be cleaner and need updating. The first room we were in smelt of urine, we had to move rooms as the hotel then needed that room. The second room smelt of cigarette smoke, we informed reception but they said... More

The hotel was clean and the staff were very obliging. However, I expect when I check into my room to find details of the local attractions and other useful information. There was nothing either in my room or in the reception . I asked for a local map but none were available and I was shown a large map on... More

Basic is the word what is hotel akabar. The personel speaks no english but is friendly. The pool is small and only for a Quick swim. The rooms are old and i had to hold my shower in my hand to shower. The towels are big and soft. At the moment the hotel is buzy with a renovation at the... More

A simple hotel fit for purpose, which would get a much better review if it weren't for the receptionist telling me to pay 100 dirham for a taxi (which my tour guide had advised would cost only 15), on the basis it was a Sunday and there are 'no taxis on Sundays.' Unfortunately having spent a couple of weeks travelling... More

Everyone there was very helpful and even let me leave my bags on my last day in Morocco even though I wasnt actually staying there. The resturant was your average breakfast however I loved the fredh juice and after travelling all over... More

Akabar is a very very basic hotel. Rooms are average and very dated but clean enough. The bathroom is tiny and the shower heads were either broken or best used manually. The hotel lacks character and atmosphere which you expect when staying in Morocco so I would not stay here is you are seeking an authentic experience. Wi-fi only worked... More
