No, of course "Casablanca" wasn't filmed here but it carries a time-warp to the early 20th century. The building has seen better days but in a place without a big choice of budget hotels, it's not bad. In fact the winding staircase (minus lift/elevator) is one of its best points. The rooms are a bit basic and the service on the slapdash side but the setting is in a pleasant if somewhat run-down square in the medina (the youth hostel is here too) with an assortment of eccentric locals.
They serve continental breakfast, with a backing of pop music. Most of it is indifferent but I was treated to Santana's version of "She's not there"! If you're lucky you may get a room overlooking the Atlantic.More
