“4* ??? But they try”
Reviewed 21 March 2013

This would be a 3 star hotel anywhere else, BUT they try and that means a lot. They agreed to pick us up at the airport which was a good thing in remote Laayoune. The room was basic but air conditioning and plumbing did work. Get to breakfast by 9 AM because food tends to disappear after that time.

I stayed at the Hotel Nagjir Ville for one night only in March 2013, paying 49 Euros (including 2 Euros city tax) for a large room with two single beds pushed together. Breakfast was not included in the price. The hotel is officially a four star hotel, but would be regarded elsewhere as a three star one.

Frankly, you are not spoiled for choice in Laayoune as far as hotel accommodation is concerned and it is quite possible that the Nagjir is the best of the bunch in town. I found the bed comfortable and the room reasonably well-appointed, with a working wi-fi connection free of charge. There is also a TV in the room, which I didn't turn on. The soundproofing was fine, as was the standard of cleanliness. Everything in the bathroom was fine, though there was no plug for the bath and the 'hot' water was rather lukewarm. My room was on the fifth floor (accessible by efficient lift) and had a small balcony; the view, however, (of a building site) was deeply uninspiring. In general, I found the hotel staff pleasant and helpful.

I had dinner in the hotel restaurant and thought that the food was fine, although no alcohol is available and the restaurant was far too brightly and harshly lit. Breakfast (served in the first floor cafe) was a pretty dismal affair, however. I was given a very strange look when I asked for some cold milk to pour over my bowl of cornflakes! Did I not want hot milk?!

In the highly unlikely event of my ever returning to Laayoune (a place I would say that lacks both character and charm), I would probably stay at the Nagjir Ville again and would also recommend it to visitors to the town. As with most of the 'top' hotels, most of the residents seem to be UN staff, who are there (I believe) to monitor a ceasefire, as the territory of which Laayoune is the capital (the former colony of Spanish Sahara) is disputed - though it has effectively been annexed by Morocco. They can be seen driving all over town in clearly marked UN vehicles.

The location, by the way, is great - just two minutes' walk from the CTM 'bus station. I flew from Laayoune on Binter Canarias to Las Palmas and it took me only five minutes to get to the small airport from the hotel.

I would also recommend a small restaurant called Le Poissonnier (183 avenue Mecka al Mokarrama), which is located close to the hotel (a five to ten minute walk). As the name suggests, it specialises in fish. The fish soup and grilled calamari I had for lunch were both excellent and very reasonably priced. Sadly, no wine was available to wash it all down!

Basic but well-equipped, clean rooms; comfy bed linen and warm showers. Excellent customer service, particularly the team at Reception whose friendliness and attention to detail does not go unnoticed. There is a restaurant and a breakfast service on the first floor. Used by UN workers, football teams, etc. Great location, right in the middle of town. Wander out from reception into a lively evening atmosphere; sip tea and watch the city's population bustle past through the centre. Would highly recommend it.
