“I hope this was my last visit”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

I stayed at the Golden Tulip Farah hotel in June 2011 and my experience was terrible. I had stayed for a couple of times before and it was not so bad then. The hotel needs to be refurbished in order to regain its previous fair standing.
When I first entered the room the smell of the dust was suffocating. There was at least 2 flies in the room. But the worse was the toilets, which had a smell of bad vinegar/ wet towel. The smell actually came from the very dirty shower curtains. The room service did not add towels when the ones displayed were used, and I had to call twice to request tissues and at the end of my 3 days stays I never got them.
The food at the restaurant is mediocre. The only good thing is the Moroccan tea to be enjoyed at the lobby.
Overall it was a bad experience, hopefully not to be repeated in the near future.

Stayed here for 1 night as part of a group tour. Room and bathroom nice. Central location. A little road noise in the evening, but lessened at night. Breakfast buffet OK. Views from terrace on level 5 are great. Helpful staff.

Rooms are very old, they need renovation. Wifi was extremely slow (skype calls were failing). The breakfast was very poor and the evening restaurant was totally disorganised. The overall quality was unacceptable for a hotel that charges 220 EUR a night.

We must have struck lucky here, for we had a very spacious room overlooking the river. View from the top floor terrace was amazing and had we been there in summer, the roof top pool would have been a temptation. Pancakes at breakfast were cooked as you waited and were delicious.

This isn’t a great hotel, its old and the rooms a bit shabby. Staff are ok, while I had no problems, I saw a number of people checking out and had a lot of complaints and the staff seemed to be responding quite rudely.
The location of the hotel is good though, its within walking distance of the Kasbah and the old walled part of the city.
I didn’t eat in the hotel or use any facilities so can’t comment. I was only here for a few nights, and it was fine for that, but if I was here for longer I’d look for somewhere slightly more modern and comfortable.

Recently spent one week at the Golden Tulip, Morocco. If you are just looking for a place to sleep and shower, this hotel will suit you well. During the 6 days that I was there, the wifi was not working for 5 days. They blamed it on the weather. The coffee shop one block away had wifi during the same weather. The workout facility is practically non-existent. There were 2 treadmills and 2 cross-trainers…of those, only one cross-trainer was in working condition. The breakfast buffet was included in the room price. If it wasn’t included, I would have found somewhere else to eat. Same breakfast every day, and nothing spectacular. The dinner buffet, which I only had once, was very limited and over priced at $23. Some of the items left us guessing as to what they were…eggplant? Maybe mushrooms? The bed was comfortable, but just a very thin sheet over the mattress. No mattress cover. The bathrooms were decent.

The room was reasonably spacious with quite large beds, a sofa, coffee table, a big wardrobe and desk. The bathroom was neat and functional. But the in room safe was missing. We were on the first floor with windows facing the street and noticed that the opening was secured by steel bars. This is a safety issue as one could not escape thru the windows if the corridor is on fire.

The dining facility is not up to par and the food is rather poor. We had buffet for dinner and breakfast. There was a large volume of food but very limited variety and lacked quality. The service provided also failed. I noticed a cake knife from the dessert table had fallen onto the floor and notified the waiter who just picked it up, wiped it on a napkin and put it back on the table. One would’ve expected the dirty knife be taken to the kitchen and be replaced with a fresh clean one. Hygiene standard is low and staff poorly trained.

This hotel is satisfactory for only a short or an overnight stay. Given the opportunity I would look for another hotel.
