“Three stars for effort”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 December 2008

We found this place through the Lonely Planet and it turned out to be a mixed bag, coloured no doubt by the fact that during our one night stay we were suffering the full effects of a Moroccan parasite.

Getting from the train station to Asilah town was a bit of an ordeal – with no transport of any kind meeting the train on our arrival we had to trek with all of our luggage along the train tracks to a nearby road where we hailed a grand taxi (an ancient four door Mercedes Benz sedan which we shared with five others!).

Once at the hotel, the staff were amongst the friendliest we have ever encountered, although it helped that we spoke French because little English was spoken (the guys on reception also seemed to speak Spanish). The room was basic but large, had cable TV (a welcome surprise), and was clean enough. Moreover, hot water – something of a rarity in cheap Moroccan hotels – did seem to exist at this place, at least once the staff had switched on the mini boiler in the slightly musty bathroom (though the cleaners and the next guests to use this room probably had worse aromas to contend with).

That said, there were other certain other malodorous shortcomings which were not our doing.

For instance sheets did smell a little funky, as though they may not have been changed for some weeks, and the stench of the nearby sheep could be smelled even above the linen. Breakfast was a limited smorgasboard of filter coffee and bread with butter and jam, but, being ill, we didn’t feel up to it. The receptionist noticed we’d missed out on the croissants so went and got us some. Unable to refuse this kind gesture, we ate his offering and then immediately ran back to the toilet in our room.

Overall, a friendly budget hotel that was more than adequate for one night.
