“Budget accommodation”
Reviewed June 11, 2010

We stayed 1 night passing through Ouarzazate. It's definitely no-frills, but for 25 EUR a night was clean and had air con. Shower was rubbish but warm. You can park outside and it's about 5 mins walk to the main square, though more like 20 mins walk to the kasbah which is on the other side of town.

Definetely among the worst hotel I have ever seen!

We arrived at night, left the luggage in the room and went out to eat something.

Once back, we realised that the room was full of cockroaches. We asked to change the room but the situation was not much better.

The day after we stayed in the Ibis hotel. We normally do not sleep in such chains but I would seriously consider doing that in Ouarzazate, especially if you do not have a car to go to find an hotel outside the town!

I stayed two nights at Hotel Amlal, in february 2010. I liked this hotel and I recommend it. The room was spacious, although basic, but wh had a mini TV, AC, private bathroom. A good deal for what we paied (300 dh per day for a triple room). The hotel has a restaurant with resonable prices.
We took an excursion to Ait Benhaddou. Ishu guided us through the village, we made few stops on the way to Ait Benhaddou and admired the scenary. After we visited the village we had to cross the river in order to go back to car, but Ishu was not attentive and he made an unexpected bath :)

We visitited Ourzazate as a stop in trip (alone not with any kind of agency) form Marakesh to Erg Chagga desert and stayed in Hotel Amlal. The hotel was easy to book from our home country by email and the reservation was valid despite we came to the town quite late (around 20:00).
Hotel is located in the "City Center" (Ourzazate is a rather small town with one or two main streets - but it is very vast you have to go about 3km from city center to bus/taxi station) one one of the main streets, but it is like "in the back" so it's not loud inside.
It is very clean and the staff is very nice (for the first time in Marocco I met a woman - working at the reception - who is such open to people, not afraid like others). The bathrooms are in "maroceean" standard but they are also clean and there is hot water all the time.
The breakfast was a standard one with no add-ons but everything was fresh and coffe was made of esspresso machine so it was ok.

The only problem maybe for disabled or older travelers as the hotel has 4 stages and no elevator.

To sum up: the hotel is a very good value for the money and it's worth staying there. The city is rather sleepy and there's nothing to do for more than half a day, so it'll be probably one night - and that's what's this place designed for.
