This hotel falls short in the bathroom. The shower is badly designed. The bracket holding the shower is so badly placed, that water comes out against the far wall and ends up on the floor and soaks the floor. We had a buffet dinner at this hotel, which is so far the best we have had in Morocco, but the breakfast was very poor.
We were kept awake until 4 AM by disco music, the front desk clerk hung up on me when I called to see if it was going to stop, the manager told me to "go back to your room" when I complained about a plugged sink, the repair person looked at it and left, leaving us to chase him down the hall to return and actually clear it. Poor impression.
Large hotel with a view. Room rates were reasonable... our room was fine. Food provided buffet style. Staff were professional and friendly. Train runs below the hotel but not frequently. Nice pool and garden area. Bar in the lounge. Seating in lounge is comfortable. Not sure what other reviewers expected but I'm not disappointed. This is Fes not Paris.
We stayed here for 2 nights whilst touring Morocco. It is about 10 minutes from the end of the main street of FES where there is a McDonald's and a large mall with Carre-Four supermarket. There are lifts to all floors, a pool and free Wi-Fi in the rooms. Our room, No. 417 was a good size with twin beds, a desk & chair, a fridge, a safe and a balcony. It was on the back of the hotel with a railway line not too far away although trains seemed few and far between. It had a wardrobe but no drawer space. The bathroom had a hairdryer. Dinner was buffet style with a vast array of salad as starters. There were 3 main course dishes of fish, meat and a vegetarian option. Orange slices, small cakes and a multi portion gateau served as sweet. Breakfast was also a buffet with cereal, fruit juice, fruit pieces, yogurt, sliced cheese, cold meats, HB eggs, misc salad stuff and pastries. The hot food was scrambled egg, potatoes and tomatoes. We enjoyed our stay here but be aware there are 2 Menzeh hotels on this street. This one is at no 10. The other at no 28 did not look as appealing so be careful.
Compared to the other hotels I was staying in while in Morocco, this place is a dream! Compared to American or European standards, it may not be the best. But it is clean, the staff is helpful, and overall I very much enjoyed my stay here, and I would stay again. The food was also really good!
The best thing about this hotel is the staff. They were very helpful from the moment we arrived. Unfortunately while our beds were comfortable, the room itself was sparsely furnished. The TV needed a reboot by a technician to operate. There was no room safe. The WIFI was rather patchy. The bathroom was poorly designed and hot water seemed like a variable commodity. The hotel seemed quite dated - maybe because we could not enjoy the spacious grounds due to cold weather. A large MacDonalds is only a block away. Then a large shopping centre with restaurants is just another block past the MacDonalds. On the plus side the hotel had a money exchange service at the front desk, and an included breakfast buffet with a good variety of choices.
This hotel is about 8 minutes walk to a shopping center where there is a huge Carre Four (pronounced "Carr Foo" in French) - which is the only plus of the hotel. Other than that, the hotel was designed badly e.g. toilet built in a separate room from the bidet (located in bathroom). It is difficult to have a comfortable shower as the water runs extremely HOT, then cold ...all the time. Breakfast was nothing special with limited choices. Wi-Fi only exists near the reception and at night, plenty of guests are sitting around in the lobby.
It is an hotel you can value by european standards, of course much more confortable than some Riads we have been. A bit dated but the buffet for breakfast and dinner is all right and the prices for the Spa and Massages are quite reasonable, specially if compared with other towns in Morocco. Anyway, beware of the Medina in Fes. It is amazing to view but people there don't make the experience easy to enjoy. And the fees for the taxi from the train station are not worth more than 10 dirhams!!!!
Stayed here as part of Cosmos Tours Overall - the place is quite old and is in dire need of a renovation/upgrade Location - one of the few good things about the place was its location. It is a 10 minute walk to a mall where there are restaurants and a grocery store. There is also a small sports bar and convenience store across the hotel Room - the room was not so clean and quite outdated. Some of my tourmates' rooms had toilet flushes that weren't working. While I am of smaller size being Asian, I imagine that Westerners would have a hard time with the bathroom - as there is little space between the sink and bidet. The heater of the shower was a little off too - it would turn from hot to cold and back to hot so taking a bath was not pleasant. The only plus side to the room was a television that had English movies Food - food was so-so, nothing special Wifi - spotty and almost nonexistent in the room, only strong in the lobby.
We stayed here for two nights on a tour of Morocco. The reception area is lovely, the room was dated and it certainly wasn't a room with a view. That said it was clean and functional and that was all we needed. The dining room wasn't really big enough for a full hotel but the food was OK given it was buffet.
