In a word? Dank.
This hotel was listed in the moderately priced section of the Morocco Rough Guide. I have to say that it should be moved to the cheap accommodations section.
The room that we rented was indeed cheap, less than $20 a night. It was also dirty and damp. We had to go down to the front desk to ask them for towels and to turn on the water. The bathroom had the distinct smell of mildew.
If you're looking for a cheap place to stay in Marrakesh's medina, the Hotel Ali is a much better deal. The general mood of despair that permeates the halls and rooms of the Arset el Bilk really puts a damper on your enjoyment of Marrakesh itself.
