This hotel was chosen for us as part of our tour, but I have no complaints. It is a local, small, quaint hotel right in the heart of the medina. Sleep: great bed, loads of covers if you get chilled, comfortable. Be sure to ask for a non-street room if you're a light sleeper. Otherwise...GET THE STREET VIEW! It's wonderful...

We stayed 3 nights during our short trip. The rooms are basic but clean and bed is comfortable. The roof terrace was great for morning chill too. Zachary - the receptionist was always nice and helpful. Value for money!

We really enjoyed our week long stay here; a great location right in the heart of the medina. The staff were friendly, informal and helpful. The room was comfortable and clean and everything worked. Loved the view from the rooftop where we had good breakfasts (including fresh squeezed orange and fresh made pancakes with honey) in the sunshine. Best of...
