we arrived in the square and was met by a man with his trolley to transport our luggage down the hideaway alleys. When the door was opened to us it was like another world inside, it was warm cosy and inviting, decorated in a very morrocan style. However it was shabby chic, but a little more shabby than chic, but very clean, nice crisp fresh linen and soft fluffy towels. My one complaint was the lighting, theres ambient and there is cant see much at all so dont bank on reading in your room at bedtime!!! However we couldnt fault Kirstin the manageress/ director, she had so much info to tell you, ie where to visit and see, where is good to eat and drink how and what to tip etc.........she was great, so thank you kirstin. Dar Fakir is worth a visit and the other staff are wondrful working extremely hard and nothing was too much trouble for them, so take a visit.
