It’s one of the best boutique hotels I’ve seen, a truly 5 stars hotel.
They did a great job turning this old palace into a hotel. It’s typical Moroccan style, the mosaic, lamps, courtyard, fountain and pool, wooden doors with paintings, hand painted ceilings …. very detailed and beautiful!!
Great service, staffs are smiling all the time and do their best to help you, very efficient too.
Our room is luxury with a living room, bed room and bathroom. Bed room has the best linen, everything they use in this hotel is top of the line. There is a bathtub which I love. Hot water works great! (It’s not common in Morocco.) They have nice thick towels and robes.
It’s located in south side of the old medina, on the hill. It’s 7 minutes taxi ride/Dh15 (like USD$2) to the popular Blue Gate (Bab Bou). The view is stunning!
Best yet, they have great chef and restaurants. Complimentary breakfast is wonderful, there are fruits, eggs, pastry and breads, cheeses, salamis, smoke salmon, coffee and tea…..
We had dinner twice here, the best grilled fish, salad…. Have to try seafood pastilla. Most of the restaurants in Morocco serve chicken or pigeon pastilla which I found a little dry, plus they put powder sugar and cinnamon on top the baked meat pie, it tasted kind of funny to me.
You don’t see seafood or fish pastilla often on the menu. They don’t put powder sugar and cinnamon on top of the seafood pastilla. Plus, Palais Faraj chef makes the best seafood/fish pastilla, it’s very yummy and not dry at all.
If you don’t stay here, have to come here to dine or drink at the bar and enjoy the best view.
