An overzealous use of original Berber designs and ceramics has created an over powering array of colour, rich textiles and cluttered fussiness. The traditional arches, ornate tiles and low Moroccan sofas will not fail to remind guests of where they are but these all look a little out of place in such a modern building in a modern area of the city. Alcohol is not served on the premises.
A plain looking pink coloured austere modern building with tiny one chair balconies down each corner, small neat windows and a narrow canopied entrance.
Property type: Hotel
Balcony/Terrace: Some rooms
Built Year: 2004
The interior is overloaded with ornate and colourful Berber style decor, which would look more at home in a home in the Medina. The decor is colourful to say the least, especially in the compact lobby and lounge. The restaurant is again over decorated and a hammam (bath) facility occupies part of the basement area.
An enclosed pool area is partly in the shade and has a few sunloungers on the narrow surround. Although relatively calm and quiet, the pool enclosure could be somewhat claustrophobic for a day’s sunbathing.
Area Type: In the heart of the more modern and busy Gueliz district, surrounded by other middle market properties, offices and small shops. There area few snack bars within 100 yds and a wide variety of restaurants from 150 yds. Taxis pass the entrance or wait at the end of the street.
