Hotel Ayoub - not quite the 3*** expected

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 22, 2008

We stayed 2 nights at the hotel - which is in the new district, surrounded by building works and new developments - so rather dusty.
The rooms are however rather spacious and clean and we found the beds comfortable and the shower has indeed hot water :)

The problem we found on the first morning - as it was the month of Ramadan and a Sunday was - that there was not sufficient breakfast (apart from 2 day old croissants) - and that was also the case on our last day ... dry bread and dead-hard pastries at the buffet.

Mind at the end of breakfast time, this lovely woman appeared with a small stove and made fresh 'petite pain' -- a sort of oily chapati- pan-cakes... by then most guests had already had their share and it should have been organised a lot better.

A cereal or muesli option or even some cheese and savory food would have been very welcome.

Not sure how it is outside Ramadan - but we also had some rain whilst there and the roof leaked so badly that the lounge area had big puddles.

The rooms are adequate with air-condition (which however, didn't work in some rooms)

The real tricky bit was the door-handles - myself and another guest looked themselves into the bathroom and it took a while to get back out and figure out this weird contraption.

There is a grocery store right behind the hotel which subsidised for the missing breakfast - and was a real life-saver as we headed off for a trek in the morning and needed more nourishing food than stale croissants.

Unique Quality: It has a lovely architecture and is in walking distance of the old city (about 15-20 minutes on foot)

The hotel is also in walking distance to the "Jardain Mjorelle" (Yves Saint Laurants famous gardens)

I booked the Ayoub Hotel online for £25 per night for a double room, half board. When I tried to extend the booking at the hotel reception desk I found the local rate for a double room, without meals, was a much higher DH500.

So, this is a good hotel to book online, in advance. The rooms are good, with airconditioning and they have small balconies. There is a restaurant, bar and small swimming pool. The buffet breakfast and dinner are OK, but nothing special. The nearest attraction is Jardin Majorelle.

The main problem is that it is a long way from the Medina, in a street where taxis are quite rare.

Directions: Opposite the Faculty of Medicine, Lamhita
