Used this place on two occasions during an Explore tour of Morocco during Xmas and NY 2009.
The location is perfect, being on the edge of Djemaa el Fna square. This does mean you can't always get too park near it though which sometime leads to a walk of a few minutes with your bags. It's not that quiet, but if quiet's your thing then you probably shouldn't go to Morocco! Has a great roof terrace in which to get a view of the square, mosque and some fantastic sunsets!
The rooms are average for basic Morocco hotels. Not everything will work, there will be a bit of peeling plaster or paint, but generally it was clean. Beds were OK and there were plenty of extra blankets (as it gets cold at night).
Due to the place also having a Hammam on-site, there was always plenty of hot water (a luxury in basic hotels).
The breakfast was (as is the norm) bread and jam. Sometimes there were omlettes or pancakes, but it was a little sporadic in quality and timing.
The service levels were very poor when tested on a couple of occasions; before you finished your breakfast they were telling you to hurry up so they could clear the table, this happened on several occassions, but you just ignore it after a while; on our second visit the room we were given had a broken toilet (still in pieces and clearly beyond repair), but when we asked for another room we were given a "what do you want me to do about it". Luckily our Moroccon tour leader was passing at the time and a few words from him ended in us having a new room which was fine.
Overall it was an OK hotel. You get what you pay for and we were never expecting any luxuries. However, with a little work and customer service it could ba a great little place.
PS. has free Wi-Fi downstairs in the hotel
