Fodor's Expert Review Palais Salam

Av. Moulay Ismail, outside ramparts, Taroudant, Souss-Massa-Drâa, Morocco

This 18th-century pasha's palace hotel has seen better days, welcoming ambassadors and aristocracy, but still retains a sense of the grand, starting with the giant courtyard at the center and exotic gardens. With more than 100 rooms, it feels more like a village than a palace and is popular with large bus groups. Ask for the newly renovated rooms or one of the self-contained riads. There are also two swimming pools, a restaurant, and bar.

PROS

  • large gardens and terraces
  • easy access by car
  • located at an entrance to the old town

CONS

  • some areas and rooms rundown
  • can be full of large bus groups
  • bar can be noisy at night
