4 of us just returned from 5 nights at this fab hotel. Staff extremely helpful, friendly and obliging. The hotel clean, room clean, breakfast plentiful. Breakfast consisted of same things each morning, pastries, rolls, cheese, salami, olives, jam, honey, cereal, yoghurt, porridge, boiled eggs, Moroccan pancake, dates, prunes, orange segments, tea, coffee, orange juice. Staff were very quick to refill anything that was finishing. Sockets are 2 pin so you need to bring adaptors. Wifi in rooms, but found it a bit intermittent, sometimes taking 15 mins to get internet back. Shampoo, bath gel and soap in bathroom but you might want to bring your own, No hairdyer in room but Reception can loan you one but they only have the one. We brought our own iron so not sure if they provide one. Loads of local Restaurants around with KFC and McDonalds, pizza hut within walking distance. Train Station close too and about 20 mins walk to Jemaa El Fna square. We went by taxi to Ourika (mountains), a very beautiful peaceful place. A meal by the flowing river is a must and go further into the mountains to the waterfalls if you can but you need to take your trainers with you! Try to see a traditional Berber house, how Argan oil is made while you're there. You need to haggle for eveything, icluding taxis, so you need to have an idea of what you should be paying. Also went by taxi to Casablanca but you can go by train too which is more reasonable if there are 2 of you, taxi cheaper if more of you so can split the cost. Highly recommend the open top Tour Bus, hop on hop off so you can visit all the Tourist attractions along the way. Horse carriage ride was great too. Remember to keep 11 Dhirams pppn to pay for tax when settling final bill at hotel. We found it a fabulous hotel, fabulously located and would definitely recommend this! You need to have an open and accepting mind, bartering is must but that is part of the fun! Locals are very friendly, not aggressive. Go with the flow and you'll have a fab time! Would definitely recommend this Hotel!
