This is a solid 4-star, not 5-star hotel.
It takes 30 minutes at a brisk pace to walk to Jemaa el Fna (the fantastic market place). At a leisurely pace it takes 45 minutes. The worst parts are that many of the surrounding streets are not well lit (some seemingly not lit at all), and parts of the sidewalks are very uneven, so it's quite treacherous at night.
If you don't twist an ankle on the sidewalk, be prepared to get run over by traffic. To get to JeF from the hotel, there are a few major streets to cross, and they are breathtakingly scary. Woe to anyone who can't dodge and run.
(The Jemaa el Fna is absolutely worth the effort it takes to go at night; it becomes a magical place, and very different than what it's like in the daytime.)
The breakfast at the hotel is barely okay, definitely not special or something I looked forward to in the morning. It's mostly breads and fresh fruit. The bread and baked good are well made.
There's a pitiful omelet bar, with few toppings, a long line, and only one slow-pokey omelet chef. After a couple of omelets I hardly thought it worth the effort.
