“Beautiful view and great dinner”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2012

Amazing view from the terrace, which is where meals are served. My room was pretty warm (no air conditioning) but the fan they provided helped. Houcine (the owner) was very hospitable, even inviting my group of friends to a cousin’s wedding in the evening. Dinner, included in the 200 DH per person per night price, was very good. Breakfast was also included. Ait Benhaddou seems to have a lot of options for hotel, some with pools or other amenities, we chose this one mainly because of the view and the building seemed more interesting than a lot of the others. Parking provided in a walled courtyard.

stayed here with a tour group for only one night but we all wanted to stay longer!! fantastic rooms that were clean and comfortable. no aircon in our room but large window with a fan was adequate in August. Some other people in our group felt too hot and regretted not taking up the option for a bed on the roof. the hotel had a great roof top area for relaxing and meals. dinner was delicious, especially after a cooking demo from the entertaining Mr Action!! we stayed during ramadan and were amazed at the enthusiasm and service given by a lovely family who had to have been hungry, thirsty and tired!! not a negative word to say!!

We visited as part of a touring group - so only one night. We would have gladly stayed for more as the proprietor and his staff and family made us welcome and the rooms were just right - comfortable and with great views of the Kasbah.
Excellent meals served on the roof terrace and overall a great experience.

Room Tip: All rooms would be good.

Fibule, an ancient form of brooch pointed and highly ornamental to secure garments has been widely used by the Berbers where it was once used by Germanic tribes as well as the viking. The Fibule d'Or as a name of an accommodation house in the little town of Aït Ben Haddou 5 or 6 kms off the main road through the central Atlas mountains has been well chosen in that it secures an impeccable view over the mesmerising kasbah tucked into the hill opposing it.
Either you stay inside the kasbah and its surrounding maze, or you stay opposite it where Fibule D'Or is. The setting sun will work its magic on the kasbah as you contemplate it from the rooftop of the Fibule D'Or, where all meals will be served.
Houssain runs it and will be quick to tell you he's been an extra in no less than 23 movies filmed in the area including Gladiator. He has awards for his prowess, and Australians may recognise his face from the cover of the Intrepid Tours brochure. Several very chatty staff including Mohammed will keep you entertained and pumped up with mint tea.
You'll notice a unique key fitting at your door when you step inside your room. Spartan, spacious with a high ceiling is what is needed in the heat of June. But it's the rooftop terrace where you'll want to contemplate the vista. With sundown, the moon's right there. You could swear it is matching the brilliance of the sun.
Altogether a fantasyland and bound to be a highlight of any Moroccan journey. A timeless view which has a very very humbling effect on its beholder.

Mr Action and his family and team were very welcoming. Rooms had amazing views and were original and comfortable. Meals and service terrific and location suburb! Mr Action was a destination in himself.

A lovely accommodation with friendly staff, superb views of the Kasbah, and great food. The roof terrace was THE place to see the shifting light on the kasbah at sunset or sunrise, but the hotel is close enough to walk easily into the old city. Breakfast on the roof was an experience, and our host 'Mr. Action' made us very welcome. Lots of local character and atmosphere - we would recommend it highly.

Room Tip: Do your research before leaving home, always keeping an open mind for the unexpected.

A great place to stay in Ait Benhaddou mainly because of the fantastic view of the amazing kasbah. The best breakfasts that we had during our 12 day stay in Morocco - they actually served eggs, some of the best honey we've EVER had and we ate on the terrace looking at the kasbah. Totally incredible. Took a great guided walk of the kasbah with the B&B's family member (?), Ali, which was lovely. Karim at the B&B was very nice and helped us with everything. Very tasty, filling dinners were included - especially the Berber dish ("gallia"?? like a Berber frittata). Reminded me of good trekking lodges in Nepal. Go for the kindess of the people, the tasty food and the view. Easy drive to Ourzarzate to see fllm studios and have lunch. Much better to stay in Ait Benhaddou - much more character, just don't expect luxury. We recommend this place, just bring a headlamp.

Room Tip: Unless you're several singles, go for the rooms with double beds, not the room with four single...
