We were encouraged by the other reviewers so we took one night in the saddest hotel we have ever been. We received a room with shower (room #14). To describe it in short: it stank, it was dirty, no towels, only one power socket in the hallway, not even in the room, the windows would not close, it was wet... More

Like other reviews have mentioned, great location, short walk to the train station and Medina. Can't beat the price, either. Older place but clean and has the basics except Internet or WiFi. My room #9 was spacious, tall ceiling, huge window, basic furniture and a sink, single with 1 double bed for 120 Dh without shower (shower is 10 Dh... More

The hotel has a good location, a couple of minutes from the railway station and the Medina.Its also on a very nice boulevard, with many cafes and restaurants close by. Its an old building that must have been great once, its now run down and needs a make over. The worst thing was that the roller blinds were coated with... More

Rooms are basic but quaint. The staff was always helpful and the rooms were large. The beds aren't the most comfortable but the price is really great and it's perfect for a few night's rest. Right in the heart of Rabat, across from Parliment it is a quick walk to the medina, Parliment, the train station, and the tram stop.... More

We stayed only for a night at Hotel Central. Rooms are not super-clean and they are a bit damp, but given the relatively low price it was quite satisfactory. The shared toilet was rather clean. Location is very convenient: 2 min walking from the train station and very central indeed. Staff was very nice.

Not a nice hotel - got caught out and needed to find somewhere to stay. The hotel is dirty, the shared toilets weren't cleaned in the 24 hours I was there. Beds are uncomfortable and the staff are pretty unfriendly. Avoid.

Staying at Hotel Central is a treat while in Rabat with its colonial flare, and spotless spacious rooms. It's quite central indeed; surrounded by many restaurants, bakeries, cafes. And it's just a few minutes walk away from the train station. The staff are quite helpful and friendly--Houda, especially. I used the hotel as my refuge,and place of equilibrium before heading...

I live in Taroudant, but have had to come to Rabat a few times this year. I've just finished reading all of the reviews of Hotel Central, and think that most of them are more or less accurate, but I also think that giving this hotel a 1 out of 5 is extremely unfair. I had stayed at the Hotel... More

I've stayed in this hotel since 1965, when rooms cost a dollar and it was run by a French woman. It now has Moroccan owners and is clean and well-kept, and indeed very central: about 3 minutes walk from the main train station, and around the corner from the main, palm-lined avenue. The high ceilings, tiled floors and big French... More

The hotel has great location. It's located very close to the main road in Rabat, 5-minute-walk to the railway station and 10-minute-walk to medina and other tourist attractions like kasbah and seashore. The rooms are big and basic bathroom (it's divided from the room by a simple wall, but it's good enough). The rooms are not so clean, but it's... More
