we stayed 3 nights in this hotel in the medina, near the traditional fishermen's harbour and the souk. Some 3-4 old houses now form the Hotel, owned and personally ruled by an marocaine-swiss couple. The structure of the former private houses ist preserved. So the "tour through the hotel" has something of the exploration of a labyrinth. The old houses did not tolerate to install an elevator, so that you have to be pretty well on your feet to stay there.
The terrasse overlooks the harbour and the beach. Each (sleeping- and dining-)room has its own character , the rulers and the staff are very helpful and full of hospitality. The meals are excellent. We felt very well, and the stay was worth every single Dirham.
