Because our room wasn't ready yet when we arrived, they switched our room with terrace suite, which was most amazing thing they could do. The room was absolutely amazing, breakfast was perfect. Overall experience was one of the best on our trip in Morocco.

The room was really nice but noisy due to a washing machine in another room that did not stop during the night. Stairs are really uncomfortable: I don't recommend this hotel if you have any difficulties to move.
Nice hotel, well located, good breakfast.

Rooms could use refurbishing (e.g. curtains). There was a strong smell in the bathroom.
Perfect location just next to the medina and the harbour. We had a beautiful view at the sea from our room which was on the rooftop. Good breakfast.
