L'Iglesia is located in the old Medina/Mellah of El Jadida, within the walls of the 16th Century Portuguese fortress/walled city of Mazagan (UNESCO World Heritage). It's literally a few steps from all the monuments (the Manueline cistern/place d'armes, the ramparts, the Assumption Church, etc.). The hotel has 2 buildings: one is a 19th century Spanish church and one is the Capitainerie, former consulate. Location is perfect (walking distance to pretty much everything there is to see in the old town), service is impeccable, and the ambiance is very 30s, old charm, different era, plush time travel feeling. Although our room (#1) in the church building was beautifully decorated, very comfortable and relaxing with gorgeous sunlight in the morning, the windows are directly on the street, which was quite by night, not so much early morning. Café do Mar next door, which is an annex to the hotel, is perfect for a relaxing bite/drink (Moroccan mint tea or fresh Tangerine juice and delicious galettes/crêpes) with a breathtaking view on the sea and the Medina. Gorgeous at sunset!
