Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
HUge and empty hotel in need a updating and cleaning. Very dirty and bed bugs. I had to change rooms 3 times and each time the beds and linens were disgusting.

4/5 Good

Liked: Room comfort
Tired old quirky hotel.
The Hotel Sahara in Essouira has seen better days. It is a fabulous old building right by the walls - a great location. It is very much in the 'traveller' mould by which I mean it hasn't changed its service much since I first stayed 33 years ago! The showers are inconsistent, the towels, well, bring your own. I stay in some very fine places around the world but this place is quirky, cheap, easy and safe - though not for the faint hearted. No breakfast, non existant service.

2/5 Poor

Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Cold showers, dirty towels, broken glass!
No tea or coffee as stated in advert. Room was dark and very dated. The towels were dirty and at least 20 years old. Most of the time the showers were cold. I think they put the hot water on in the morning for 1 hour. I cut my finger on a broken glass table in the room.
