Don't bother unless you happen to be in the neighborhood. It is way out of the way and certainly not worth the drive for a stopover. The "suite" kind of looked like the picture on their website, kind of. The service was awful. When I asked for a clean bar of soap, I was told there was soap there, used by previous guest. I had to insist. The door didn't lock. The food was mediocre. In general, the place was dingy. A big disappointment. I think the owners were hosting family guests and just didn't have time for paying customers. We canceled our second night. As I said, not worth the trip. The only place I stayed in Morocco that was lacking Moroccan hospitality. The only place I would not recommend.

Ahmed was a fantastic host, and his entire staff phenomenal....would definitely stay again.

Cozy mountain retreat, but fair warning a good distance away from downtown Ouarzazate. Great views of the mountains and a wonderful bar and restaurant. Try the Casablanca beer and the hot chocolate, as you'll need it up in the mountains.

Nice room opened up to the pool, but way too cold to swim in January. The second room opened onto the large spacious patio with stunning views of the mountains....

The only areas to improve are signage to find the place, which Ahmed already has in works, and a map of the area, as it was challenging finding all the landmarks our gracious host was describing.

Definitely recommend!

We stayed two nights at the small hotel In. the mountains and enjoyed it a lot. It is situated in a small villige with red houses, when you enter the hotel you are in a different world. A tastefull oasis with a splendid view. At night dinner is served in front of the fireplace, it is cold at night in December, but you can still enjoy the sun at the terrasse at breakfast. We climed the hill and reached the Kasbah at the top. Great trip. Great view. Very friendly and helpfull staff. We would love to return.

We didn't want to drive in one day and stopped in Tisseldei at Irocha.
It is good we had a strong car for the road uphill is bad.
But then you enter another world. It had elements of a community. You eat with others and get the same meal. The atmosphere is very nice but the rooms are a bit of a bum.
Everything is a bit old and sad but the contributes to the feeling.
On the other hand is there a nice and big pool, recently made.
So in all: an experience.

Room Tip: The "suites" are the best.

Wow, this place was a little tricky to find, as my husband and I were driving at night through the Atlas Mountains. A bit out of the way, it is a gem in the middle of the pass with not much else in the area. We actually had to ask a group of children where this place was since the turn off is not well-lit. When we arrived, Abdel showed us our room and then brought us dinner immediately in the common area. He was friendly and accommodating, a total sweetheart. Our room was comfortable and clean.

In the morning, we could really see what this place had to offer. The view is amazing from the patio where we took our breakfast. I loved staying in a small village and seeing the countryside--all the noises of animals and people greeting each other on the road below added to the charm of this place. I would recommend this place over staying in the city (Ouarzazate) for a stopover, whether you're traveling north or south.
