Set at the edge of the Old Medina, this Hotel is in a great position opposite the bus station and the Bab Doukkala Gate, a kick and a step from the train station. The rooms were slightly tired, but kept fairly clean. Towels in the bathroom were in need of a good boil wash, as ours were Grey (although they should have been White). Breakfast was simple but substantial, toast, eggs, salads, bread, cake, jam orange juice and coffee. We had a Half Board booking, the evening meals, although slightly small in portion size, were very good quality.
The staff were friendly enough and attentive when required.
The Pool however was very small, the water ice cold, although each morning, the pool attendant cleaned this thoroughly and checked the chlorine levels. Around the pool was a total of 12 sun loungers, although the sun never actually hits this area until 12 noon, it can be a hassle to get a sun lounger if the hotel is busy.
We had great fun watching the disappointment on peoples faces when they came to view the pool area. Thanks to Will and Ruth from Yorkshire, this made our stay very entertaining, giggling at the new arrivals at the poolside.
Because of its location, it can be very noisy at night, if you are not a deep sleeper, avoid this hotel.
For a couple of days sightseeing or a stop off point before trekking to the Atlas Mountains, this is a great Budget Hotel, otherwise book into a better class hotel toward the New Town and Mohammed V. The Hotel would often get busy with tours stopping off for one night prior to travelling else where, or before departure from Morocco. If we return, we will stay in a better quality of the same chain, possibly the Mogador Opera, although they have a few others around Marrakech.
