I'm looking for ideas about functionality of this wooden "cage" found on the wall of hotel room in Fez, Morocco. I haven't had a chance to ask the service about it, and I'm yet to find a similar thing in any other hotel.
The photo was taken in 2019. The cage is about 50 x 50 cm, has a lock on the side and opens sideways I believe. During my stay it was empty and closed all the time. Notice it has no back panel - the wallpaper behind is visible - so my guess is nothing dirty (like laundry) goes inside.
Edit: The hotel in the question is Hotel Mounia Fes. I found a fair number of other pictures from the place on Google Maps and Tripadvisor that feature this cage (example one). The takeaways for me, regarding the comments you made, are:
- the thing may be smaller than I stated, like 30 to 40 cm on the side;
- it's not clear whether every room is equipped with it, but certainly more than one;
- location of the cage varies from room to room;
- it can open left- or right-side (the linked photo shows mirrored version with visible hinge).
