We stayed in Asilah out of season, and I suspect that this small hotel would be much busier and booked up in the summer. With friendly reception staff (the same two guys the whole time) and a location close to the seafront I'd say it's likely to be popular with foreigners and wealthier Moroccans alike.

It feels bright and airy, modern, safe and above all, clean. In fact, the place as a whole is in very good condition although it is probably one of the cheapest of the mid-range hotels.

Rooms are large, ours had twin beds, a table and a television (with BBC World and MBC English language films as well as Arabic, French and Spanish channels) are complemented by huge bathrooms with warm showers and European style loo. Spotlesslly clean and tiled all over, the bathrooms in particular feel luxurious if you've been used to shared facilities.

Unique Qualities: A light self-service breakfast was included in the price of about 300dh per room per night and consisted of small pastries with juice and coffee. As well as having very nice bathrooms, there are rooms at about 500 dh with a little living room area.

The reception area is really quite nicely done, with some very nice Moroccan abstract paintings through to the breakfast dining area. Througout the building and inside the bedrooms are black and white photos of varying ages showing aspects of Moroccan life that are quite a nice touch though I became slightly obsessed with correcting their differing angles.

Location is good, about 5 to 10 minutes walking distance from the bus station, and about 3 minutes from the Medina, the seafront and some very decent restaurants including Restaurant Garcia at the end of the street.

The only downside to this place was that at various points in the night the sound of dogs barking became a bit too incessant, but then I'd realised by this point that I should really have brought earplugs to Morocco anyway.

Address: Rue Ibn Rouchd, Asilah
Comparison: about average
Directions: Street is on the bottom right corner of the newly refurbished Place Mohammad V, leading down to the sea. The hotel is on the left walking towards the seafront.
