Hotel Splendid is a nice enough building in the centre of Rabat (5 minute walk from the bustling medina). The receptionist staff speak limited English so don't expect too much in the way of tourist advice, they are, however, friendly enough. The rooms are straightforward and well maintained but not too flashy. The inner courtyard/garden is an ideal quiet place... More

I was a bit unsure about it after reading some reviews...but the hotel is not bad at all! Great location! Near train station, near post office, medina...all you near. It was cleaned daily. The man who works there nice. Room is big. For 12 euros, more than good! Wifi is good!

It is quite an old hotel, but recently decorated and clean. I paid 125dh for a simple room with a washbasin and bidet. The shower cost 10dh. There is a very pleasant courtyard area and restaurants in the street outside. Wifi is free. A little English is spoken at reception.My room was cleaned every day

We booked a double room with the bathroom for 1night.Price is ok for eu standards but not that cheap compared to much better riads in Morocco. Toilet was dirty and there were some brown traces on the wall...even after telling them to clean nothing really happened.Wifi didnt work well and they even complained that we left early in the morning...

Good location, rooms simple but clean. We stayed only one night there but what I remembered the most was the receptionist - very nice and friendly - one of the few men in Morocco that offered his help to put on our backpacks:)

I went for a few days of backpacking with a buddy around Morocco and we thought this hotel was perfect for what we wanted - mainly cheap and centrally located. This hotel satisfied both. Sharing a room with two twin beds was cheaper than our last hostel, so we thought it was a good deal. Very close to train station... More

The hotel is close to the train station Rabat Ville, and close to the medina. There are a lot of boulangeries around where you can buy breakfast. There are also a cinema and some shops around. You can also buy food, fruit and water in the medina. We stayed in a double room for three nights. The hotel was being... More

I was in Hotel Splendid for two weeks in March 2012 for business. THe staff was cool, the place was mostly clean with the exception of their comforters which were too rough for my skin. No television and wifi access only in the main floor so no web surfing in your rooms unless the rooms are on the second floor.... More

We stayed in this hotel in December 2012. We beat them down on their quoted price as most places were empty. Very hospitable reception staff, room was nothing special, but clean and did the job. Also had a sunny balcony, though no furniture on it. A little noisy from the stairwell, though delightfully Parisian in terms of decor in the... More
