I booked this hotel after reading positive reviews here and am pleased it was as expected. The hotel is located on the northern edge of medina, the old city. A taxi ride from the railway station takes no more than 10 minutes and costs 20 dirham. The staff is friendly and the reception is decorated in traditional Moroccan style. The owner, Mohammed, is always sitting there, playing on his laptop.
Good size and very clean, my room on the first floor (inner side) was a bit cold in March but extra blanket was available. The attached bath room is very basic with a DIY type shower but clean. Two towels were provided but I had to ask for the toilet roll.
The location is excellent if you want to explore the old city. The Tejani mosque and Al Karouine madrasa are few minutes away through narrow alleys and worth a visit. I explored all parts of the city on foot without any problem. Don't believe people who warn you against getting lost. It's unlikely. The Burj Nord, the high point, not far from the hotel can be reached by foot if you are fit and provides a lovely panoramic view of the city.
The only negative point about the hotel was the supplementary breakfast as only the coffee or mint tea is served with it. A box of Lipton Tea should not be a big expense if the hotel wants to cater some British travellers. The wifi is only available in the reception.
All in all, this place is a very good value for money to stay for a couple of days. I thoroughly enjoyed my first visit of Fez.
