Located a stone's throw from the main train station, this hotel is ideal for exploring Casablanca (what little there is to explore) and provides clean comfort, although not much luxury. If you're coming from the airport, the train ride to the main station is easy and inexpensive, although the service isn't as frequent or comfortable as it could be.
The hotel has a comfortable, marble lined lobby and the staff are welcoming and friendly. Even if you arrive very early before check in, they'll do their best to get you a room if it's available, which is always appreciated after an overnight long haul flight.
The rooms are spacious and clean, if somewhat old and dark. The furniture could do with an update, but it's perfectly comfortable. Tea, coffee, a small 33cl bottle of water are provided for free, but only once. They are not replenished after being used. There's a kettle and also an (expensive) choice of drinks and snacks in the fridge. The large closet has a safe. The beds are comfortable and the linens very clean. I never found the aircon control, so not sure if it's centrally provided, but the rooms were cool enough in autumn.
There's a flat screen TV, but I never turned it on and very reliable, free wifi. There's an adjoining door to the next room. There is noise from the rooms and corridors from TV's, radios, chatter and cleaning staff. Across the street is a big building development and on weekdays, drilling started before 8:00am and went on all day. It is very loud and very annoying. No idea when the project will be finished but it looks like it's only just started as of November 2017.
The bathrooms are old, but kept clean. The bath tub and basin were both chipped and cracked. They provide soap bars and shampoo, but not every day. The towels were old, but clean enough.
Breakfast is either included in your rate or available for MD100 per day (about 10 USD) and is very good value. A buffet is provided of breads, pastries, fruits, cold cuts, cheeses, breakfast meats, tea, coffee, watered juices, yogurts. Plenty of food. They will also cook eggs to order, but this isn't well advertised. The restaurant staff are either very, very friendly and warm or extremely hostile and cold. It's 50/50.
All in all, a good property for good rates in a good area. Everything Casablanca can offer is within walking distance or a taxi ride. less
