A former officers' residence.
Hotel Transatlantique is located in the northern parts of the city. It was formerly used as a residence for the French officers during the time Morocco was a French protectorate (from 1912 until 1956).
It is a two story building set in a tranquil area with nice views over the city.
Unique Quality: The standard rooms are 18 sqm. They are equipped with AC, minibar, safe, flat-screen TV, telephone and a double bed. The WC and the bath tube with wash basin are in separate rooms, which is not common but very good.
Upstairs there is a restaurant which serves dinner from a set menu. This is of course also where the breakfast is served. I do not often complain about the breakfast but the one served here was not of the more filling sort, alas.
Hot, Hot, Hot
I stayed there some years ago, in a day when temperature reached... 46º Celsius. The hotel had a superb decoration, and a better location, with a fabulous sight over town, but the air conditioned was a nightmare: In the lucky rooms it cooled a little, with lots of noise. My children couldn't sleep with the noise.
When I reported the malfunction to the reception, the answer was... "then turn it off". Splendid!
Finnaly, they accepted to move them to another room, where things were... bearable.
A good point: the pool. First the surprise of a very deep pool; then the understanding that its deepness was the solution to keep it... not boiling. Very refreshing, but as soon as we came out the water, the wind from the desert, seemed coming from inside a oven. In Marrakesh it seems that we supported 54º, but I didn't feel so hot as in Meknes.
The hotel was renovated, and downgraded to four stars. It must be much better now!
