This is a lovely hotel. Maybe a little far from the centre for some people but we enjoyed the short walk into town. The Sofitel group are one of the best for providing free room upgrades to members of their loyalty club....a lesson we learned several years ago. Once again, they came up trumps. We had booked a de-luxe room, but upon arrival we were upgraded to a suite. Fantastic !
This is a tranquil and sophisticated place to enjoy a winter break. The entrance is grand and imposing in a french colonial style and the service we received was faultless from start to finish. As I have said, we were upgraded to a suite on arrival and enjoyed the extra space this afforded. The balcony had an excellent view over the exceptionally well-tended grounds to the Atlas mountains (althought they were shrouded in mist for most of the time we were there!) The pool was cold  but clean and pleasant and made a great place to take a break from the chaos of the souks! The breakfasts were to the usual high standard of a Sofitel and the bar and restaurants were of a good standard. The staff were friendly, the hotel immaculate and our stay a delight. The area around the hotel has some good bars and cafes - cheaper than the hotel but less classy and there is a city tour bus which stops almost outside and visits all the main sites. In short an ideal base for a short break in a fascinating city!
