Excellent Budget Choice for El Fina Square Jan 11, 2014
The Cecil was built specifically as a hotel and has been in operation as such since 1929. The twenties and thirties were an era when international travel was still very much the preserve of the well off. Morocco had recently become a French protectorate and it was the vogue to head south for the winter in order to experience the delights of this exotic new location.

Times have moved on; now morocco is a budget tourist destination. And Cecil today caters for economy travelers who enjoy its excellent location only meters from el fina ( through the archway on the right of Hotel CTM) and value clean sheets, hot showers and spacious rooms over smart decor and hearty tariffs.

Prices, including breakfast served in the rooftop terrace, start at €20 for a spacious single occupancy room with shared facilities. Double/twin ensuite are €27.

The hotel also has tours available. For example the two day one night desert tour is a very reasonable €60 per person. This includes transport, visit to Ait Benhaddu, camel trek, overnight desert accommodation, evening meal and breakfast. The hotel staff are happy for you to check out and for you to leave your luggage with them during the trip. I have been on this trek and can recommend it as an excellent, if rather rushed, intro to the atlas mountain area and the desert. See my zagora camel review for further details.
