We stayed overnight in the Dar Kamar, based on a 'Lonely Planet' recommendation. It is tucked away in the old medina away from the noise and tackiness of the main road and is a beautifully restored old house with lovely rooms. The terrace and its view over the valley and the back of the Glaoui kasbah are outstanding but best of all was the welcome given by the manager, Mohammed, who could not have been more helpful or discreetly attentive.
We would have rated the Dar Kamar well into the 'excellent' category, were it not for a dinner meal which, while adequate and taken in a lovely setting, was unimaginative and very expensive for Morocco.
Another slight drawback was the fact that the surrounding medina survives on tourism and the consequent hastle from assorted shopkeepers and would-be guides.
