We stayed here as part of an Intrepid tour, for 2 nights. Before arriving myself and another traveller had a little bit of a giggle about the review regarding the tiny pool, closing the restaurant etc that we'd all read... but found this hotel to be just fine.
Hotel Le Caspien's only drawback is that it is about 20 - 30 minutes walk to the main square and all the medina sights and sounds. However, it is in the newer part of town, meaning you are close to the supermarket, laundry and pharmacy (required whilst we were in Marrakech after eating at the stalls..!). We didn't mind the walk, but any hotter than 35C, or sick, as we did it... would be far too hot.
Our shower flooded - like all Moroccan drains - but this was exceptionally bad, as it took over half an hour to drain and actually flooded out into the bathroom and the hotel room. No amount of towels could fix it - try and get a room with a bath so as to avoid this.
You need to ask for the aircon remote from the front desk - ours didn't work well, even when we asked someone to come and help us - so we left it running because no one could get it to turn off / on every time..!
The breakfasts were good. Pastries, juice and a man making omlettes beside the tiny pool. Beers were reasonably priced for a hotel. Good staff and quiet location.
True, the pool is about as big as a bathtub and gets about 1 minute of sun a day - but other than that (which we didn't care about) the hotel was fine for two nights and if you don't mind the walk.
