Hotel Olympic
Ranked #45 of 76 Speciality Lodging in Fes
Reviewed 15 May 2013

TripAdvisor reviews suggest this hotel has progressively deteriorated over the last year or so. We stayed here as part of an Intrepid Northern Morocco Tour in April 2013. It was the worst hotel we have ever experienced. It was dirty, cramped, uncomfortable. The bathroom/toilet was repulsive. The accompanying photos say it all. As all the other accommodation on the Intrepid Tour was of an adequate to good standard, we were disappointed and surprised at this glaring exception. We have urged Intrepid to no longer use this hotel on its tours.

This hotel would get at most 1.5 stars from me. The room is small and the bathroom no bigger than a closet. The shower is roughly 50x60 cm. The matress is very woubly and does not offer the best nights rest. The wifi is only available downstairs.

Breakfast consists of bread and jam with a glass of orange juice and either coffee or tea, rather eat out for breakfast.

If you must stay here avoid room 111 like the plague.

Room Tip: Avoid room 111 and the ones above it.

On arrival from Meknes badly needed a shower bug no hot water. Expected better standard of room for the price. Plumbing could do with some maintenance. Clean bedding and towels. Nice wine shop opposite.

We stayed in this hotel just for one night, in middle Feb, even wouldn't want to stay more. We payed 30eur for two people which is a lot, considering other hotels in for example in the medina where you get such room in a nice riad for 25eur with breakfast. The hotel is far from Olympic, maybe once was but the owners didn't do anything from than on. It is really cold, walls are losing the paint and the stairs look like there was a bombing here. The room is really nothing special, has very low sound isolation so you can hear everything going on the street, bed linens were burnt with cigarettes and while there is an AC, it does not work. Never want to repeat experience in this hotel.

I had actually stayed here before and wasn't bad for the cheap price. So when I had to come back to Fez, I came here again, even though the prices had gone up. To make a long story short, I landed in a cockroach-infested room. Not just a few random cockroaches - more like lights out, cockroach free for all. They somewhat grudgingly gave me a new room sometime after 1am when I was too afraid to change hotels, and it was on the street side and noisy and I slept with the lights on because I was terrified of more cockroaches. I was happy to find a much better hotel for my remaining nights in Fez for not that much more expensive.

This hotel was rather cheap and nasty with holes in the sheets and a bathroom so small you had to sit sideways on the toilet. I consulted with several of our friends and we all found the bathrooms and rooms very dirty, including lots of hair in the sink, quite noisey, and you have to request that the aircondtioning/heating be turned on by the manager (no individual remote controls available). Wifi is in the recpeion area only and breakfast is not included although there are many cafes close by. We went to a great restaurent on the main boulevard and left the next day. There are some great hotel in Fez but this wasn't one of them.

Room Tip: I am not sure there are any good rooms.

We stayed here in October 2011 as part of an Intrepid tour. It's certainly a 'no bells and whilstles' place but in the context of the tour, it was fine. It was a bit dated but clean and had all we needed. We were a smidge ill already as we arrived in Fes so spent a larger than usual amount of time in the hotel room itself recovering and it really didn't want for much.
