Not the most spacious but a good location
Posted Oct 19, 2014
We enjoyed our stay and the plunge pool and were happy with the standards of comfort and cleanliness. The hotel is about 10 minutes walk from Djemaa el Fna, admittedly through a scruffy area, but we felt safe enough. In the other direction, it is only a short walk to the Saadian tombs, the Mellah and that whole side of the Medina. It's very close to the royal palace so there was a heavy police presence at all times so we felt safe walking back even at night, and there were shops open late for last-minute supplies of bottled water or whatever. Just off the busy Rue Sidi Mimoune, it's easily reached by taxi and easy to give directions. On the downside, the communal areas are too small (including the roof terrace) and there isn't room for everyone to sit out at the same time. This led to some friendly negotiation with other guests, which was fine, but that mightn't always be possible. So if you fancy spending a lot of time lounging on the roof or relaxing after dinner, this isn't the hotel for you. We would also have liked to have more tourist information at the reception desk on hammams, specialist shops etc.
