We recently spent six nights here. The staff were friendly, the buffet breakfast was amazing. The air conditioner in our room wasn't working properly and after a day we were moved to another room where the air conditioner was working. The rooms were lovely but few minor maintenance issues need addressing in both rooms. The bbq lunch on the roof... More

Our beautifully appointed classic room was was one of the many delights to be enjoyed at this well positioned hotel. Breakfast in the luxuriant courtyard was a great way to start the day and lunch on the roof terrace was another delightful experience.

Loved the architecture (Les Portes du Succes!), food, service, close to the markets and the old city walls, roof terrace eating al fresco above the city walls. Delightful service, loved breakfast on the courtyard. Cooool. Would definitely come again.

Excel·lent sophisticated hotel. The service was sublime. However, we felt it was not a hotel suited for children under 10 ( although they try to accommodated them as well they could). Highlights: The lady making pancakes for breakfast in the Moroccan old fashion way in front of the guests. Brunch in the roof terrace after a swim in the big... More

Step from the medina through a large blue door and you'll find yourself in the tranquil haven of l'heure bleu. It's a really beautiful hotel, centred around a leafy courtyard. Our room was spacious and tasteful & we really appreciated little touches like the kettle & lovely teabags, the fresh dates and Moroccan biscuits they brought us each day. Breakfast... More

We stayed in L'heure Bleue for two nights in May. The location is perfect, inside the walls of the old city and close to the beach, the harbour and the main square. We got a great welcome with freshly squeezed orange juice, water and some nice Moroccan cookies. We had a small room, and this was indeed a bit small... More

I would not have known such a lovely hotel existed behind the unassuming front door. Once passing through the metal detector (?) we arrived in a luxurious oasis. Structured as a riad, the courtyard is filled we greenery and a water feature with seating all around. Though a little chilly in April due to its open air construction, it was... More

This lovely riad (a Relais & Chateaux property) is everything you'd expect it to be from the R&C designation. It is absolutely charming hidden behind a blue door inside the walled old city medina. You ring the bell to be let in and wonder what's behind the door. Inside is a beautiful courtyard where you have breakfast (included with the... More
