"Smellyest hotel in town" Hotel Smara Tip by arrggghhhh

Hotel Smara, Essaouira: 49 reviews and 4 photos

Just read a review where a traveller says if someone approaches you saying this hotel is full ignore them, DON'T run with them anything is better than this hotel.

The owner is also the Moroc equivalent of Basil Fawlty. Never known rudeness for no apparent reason.

God knows why it is still in the Lonely Planet.

Unique Qualities: The amount of flies in the shower just perched there!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Address: 26 Rue De La Skala
Price Comparison: less expensive than average
Directions: The area is wonderful, give this hotel a wide berth, absolutely disgusting.
Phone: 044 475 655
Price: less than US$20
Theme: Hotel
