After staying in Moroccan budget hotels over the past month, I was looking for a little more elegance and comfort, my mum had stayed in the Marina Victoria some years ago and said it was okay, so conveniently located just across the road from the ferry port I walked in and approached the front desk, the room rates were prominently displayed at reception, so no tedious Moroccan-style haggling over money, a single would be 28 euros for me which was quite a good deal.
Reception staff were helpful and friendly and spoke English, another pleasant surprise because my command of the Spanish language is rather limited, my room was on the fourth floor with lots of stairs to negotiate, but fortunately there is a four-person lift. My room had the two windows facing the rear of the building, so no nice view of the activities in the street below, but for a one night stopover this was acceptable. There is no food served in the hotel but there are two Moroccan-owned cafeterias on either side of the hotel front door, from previous experience one of these, Cafe Goya, was guilty of overcharging on the bill, a common Moroccan malpractice, so I used the cafeteria at the ferry port which is open 24/7.
My room was spotlessly clean with two comfortable single beds and private bath and toilet, and above all working electricals, a pleasant change from Moroccan budget accommodations!
