Overall impression of the hotel is average. I stayed there for 2 nights during the business trip and for that purpose it was ok. Still I think it is overpriced and not at 5 star level.
The location is really good, close to the Medina what is the place you should visit of course. But I was surprised when asking the town map from the reception they did not have this. They suggested to take a taxi to the Medina although it was less than two kilometers away from the hotel. This is better option if you miss the map. But to my question if this is dangerous to stay in Medina during night when it is dark they said no, knowing that we missed the map. I have to say that we did not feel very secure out there.
The room was big in size but without a balcony, bed was comfortable.
There is no bathrobe in the room, from the toiletteries I had only shampoo, ordinary soap and body lotion. Not even shower gel, not speaking about sewing kit. There was no bottled drinking water in the room what is not nice if you arrive late in the evening.
Free WIFI did not work with my log in name, I had to use my colleague's .
We ate in Moroccan restaurant at the hotel one evening and it is many times more expensive of course than in town but felt more safe to us. It was interesting but not the best Maroccan cuisine experience during our stay. Still worth of trying.
Pool area was the best experience of the hotel. There can be shortage of pool towels, but all the rest was lovely and relaxing.
