Of all the places i have stayed from boutique hotels to tents; this is one of the worst experience i have ever had traveling. Upon arrival; there were no rooms and the owner tried to put us up in another room behind the hotel which looks like it have not been cleaned for a decade; the ancient gate couldn't open with the key which was a blessing for us and we decided to leave to go elsewhere but they then wanted to put us into another room with already a guest in it. They were really pushy but there were so many hasslers outside this place and we were tired and exhausted finding the location of this place that we decided okay maybe we stay in that room and they will put us in another room the next day; however was surprised when he still charged us the same as now we are staying like in a dorm and sleeping on a sofa bed. The owner got really angry when i told him I'm not happy about the room condition and the price. My friend was tired and said lets just stay there as it was getting late; so we put up with it. He was trying to sell us the tours to the sahara desert every time we see him and pushy about us eating breakfast there. Being in Fes is already bad enough that we get hassled in the street so much but its really bad when we get back to our hotel and wants some peace and still get hassled by the hotel staff!!!! The room the next day also looks like one of the rooms in the attic and not clean; toilets was flooded and i literally have to put a stool over it to shower. The next day, the toilets from the second floor overflow and the whole stairs was flooded and flowing down the stairs few floors down(i have taken a photo and will share here) and there was no other way to get up or down the floors which is also dangerous if there is a fire hazard. And when we were leaving we ask if there is a bus to Merzouga; the staff at the front desk (whose photo is there standing at the front door in the photo gallery) told us there is NO BUS TO MERZOUGA and that we have to take a bus to Rissani then its A 2HOURS 4WD DRIVE FROM THERE TO MERZOUGA!!!! He was a liar as he ended saying "SEE I TOLD U GALS SHOULD HAVE TAKEN THE TOUR WITH US'!!!!! Such a unfriendly big liar and hassler!!! When we get to the bus station we asked and there are buses direct to Merzouga!!! I wouldn't understand why lonely planet will put such a place in their list of places to stay; its utterly misleading for travelers. Given free i would not even ever step into this place again!!!! My advise to all travelers to stay away from this place.
