The Hotel Tichka is a 130-room hotel that was greeted with delight when it opened in 1986 for its tongue-in-cheek take of traditional Moroccan architecture. The high atrium reception area is lovely, while the decor in the two restaurants (stunning palm tree columns in the international one and blue and yellow striped columns in the Moroccan) is striking. There is a gorgeous bar in deep red with a beaten-copper ceiling, and the hotel also boasts one of the best pools in town, set in a well-tended garden with lawns and a terrace where a buffet lunch and dinner are served (weather permitting).
Rooms are air-conditioned and have a mini-bar, safety deposit box, telephone and satellite TV and there is 24-hour room service. Although it is located on the northern edge of town, it takes no more than 10 minutes to get into the Medina (old city) by taxi.
The Tichka also has a hammam with massage and gommage treatments. There is a news-stand / boutique at the entrance to the hotel.
From Juliet P who stayed here in October 2012
Our Hotel was in a fabulous location so we could enjoy some peace as well as being only a short ride from the action. We were warned that it was a little tired in places. We agree, but it did not put us off our enjoyment and since we had tried to travel on a budget it was perfect for us. Having a chance to relax around the pool with a G & T with very polite waiter service was unexpected and a delight. The Pool was georgous and although unheated was lovely and refreshing for my early morning dips on our mostly +28 degrees days. The food, especially the buffets and breakfast were plentiful and delicious. Although we did not book half board, we were able to negotiate a discounted rate for lunch when we wanted. Our only bugbear was the safe which seemed to have a random life of its own, but we soon managed to master it even though it meant we had to start to leave our room 5 minutes early in order to get it to lock!
