This is a well located hotel which is a bit tatty round the edges. It's freezing cold in winter, although there is a heater in the very basic rooms. Lots of taxis outside so it is easy to get around from here. There may be wi fi but i had to use it in the sitting in the dark outside in a court yard!!!

Room Tip: Dont accept one on the ground floor - it can be very noisy

The hotel is appreciable for the position, very close to the Fes Medina. Is quite noisy during the day but after 11pm all is quiet. The rooms are good, comfortable beds, large bathroom (the shower tube was broken is few parts). Breakfast is great. There is also the swimming pool very useful during summertime (on October, when I was there, was pretty cold!!)

Hotel Batha is situated in a great location. The decor inside around the reception was very nice, and the swimming pool was a treat especially during the blistering heat in August. The room we stayed in was ok but the bathroom was very dated. During our stay we had problems with the air con and I must say the staff was very accommodating asking if we wanted to change rooms, luckily the ac issue was fixed in the end.

After wandering the medina this was the perfect place to land for nice swim, glass of wine by the pool and good sleep in their beautifully tiled room. It seemed to attract many nice guests who created a calm but friend atmosphere in the breakfast salon and pool area. As a Peace Corps volunteer I don't have much to spend and I've traveled all over the country. This was a great splurge for me and definitely worth the little extra. A great value. Nice, polite yet unobtrusive staff- unfortunately rather rare here. Beautiful, quiet central courtyard. I hope to bring my new husband there for a romantic get away soon. (I'm writing this review a year later, because I've been dreaming of it ever since, and it truly deserves the recommendation.)

Room Tip: I was there during Ramadan. I've heard its a bit noisier other times due to traffic to their bar...

This hotel has a very good position, next to Medina of Fes, and the services inside are also very good and are very nice looking, with restaurant, bar, fountains and swimming pool.
The rooms instead really need to be renovated, with dirty walls and cockroachs in the bathroom. We changed 2 rooms but the problem of cockroachs existed in both of them even if the personnel of the hotel did not want to admit this as a problem of the hotel.

If you consider the slightly high price of this hotel (if compared to the standards of Morocco), the quality-price ratio is low.

What excellent value for money! The location is fantastic, just two mins to the entrance of the old medina, whilst taxi's can still pull up right outside the hotel, so no walking through streets of a medina to get to your accomodation with your lugguage. The room was dated, with an avocado bathroom suite, but saying that, it had hot running water, a television offering a variety of channels and was very clean. The hotel itself was a pleasant surprise, with a nice communal terraced area, with mosaics and fountains, plus a bar that sells alcohol. The pool was a real bonus, especially in the August heat, with a few sunbeds around the edge. Ok, this is not a luxurious hotel, but for the price, location, the fact it sells alcohol and has a pool, I don't think you can complain. If you want luxury, pay more to stay elsewhere!

Overal I would say go for it as long as you are a bit focussed on the hygiene factor. The hotel is on spitting distance from Fes' old Medina. Being an Unesco site this is a must visit, though I strongly recommend to get a local tour guide, since you'll be lost forever in it otherwise.

On the pro-side the hotel itself is actually quit nice nice. The innercourts (on three levels) are done in traditional marocan style, the pool being nicely integrated in that. It's a little gem in the chaos of everyday life in the Medina. The front desk staff is nice and helpfull. You can order beers or wine poolside.

On the con-side there is the general hygiene which is on regretable low standard. We found huge coakroaches running around the room, to which the staffs solution was to hunt them out the room (with my towel) and squash them outside. The staff in the breakfast room was beating this by cleaning the glasses and spoons with the T-shirt they were wearing. No thanks. The bar-dude was notoriously famous for not returning the change money.

My take ? Book the place without breakfast. .. it's nice enough .. make sure the room you get is clean and otherwise demand an other one

Room Tip: Rooms on the lower level are located on the backside of the hotel and thus quit quiet and no hinder...
