Located right in the city centre but quiet and clean. The rooms / windows are directed to an inner atrium which keeps noise and heat outside. The air condition was working and the water in the shower was hot - what else do you need! Staff was very friendly, sometimes you have to wait a little for someone who speaks english. Great value for money!

We booked the Cecil for one night because our first choice riad in the medina was fully booked. positive: central location in the medina, mostly clean negative: loud because its close to jama el fna (background music of snake charmers and other musicians), bad smell in the room after cleaning and constantly bad smell in the bathroom, very cold rooms (even at daytime in spring) on the ground level rooms, service could be better (couldnt find anyone for breakfast and breakfast was bad)


Great Location just 20 meters from the central square. Great rooftop terrace overlooking the square. Friendly staff. Great value for the money.


Cannot recommend this hotel enough! Great staff, location and value for money..loved it!
