Just outside the medina entrance near Bab Boujeloud, the popular Batha has an excellent location, good-value rooms—spacious, clean, and comfortable, if a little dated—and the all-important air-conditioning. Rooms surround a large central courtyard with a swimming pool. One of the few places near the medina to serve alcohol, the Churchill Bar is a cozy spot in winter and the alfresco Le Consul bar is usually busy. The friendly staff speak English.
