I stayed at this hotel for a night before heading out to Rabat. I was not disappointed.
True, it is not in the newer and flashier part of town, but that is part of what makes it interesting. The hotel is close to the heart of the city and to the average person. Sure, you will have noise and you will have dirty streets, but this is the main CITY of a second-world country...hardly surprising!! Casablanca is not a highlight of a trip to Morocco...but while there, it's good to take a moment to experience it a little, because it IS an integral part of the country.
The hotel itself was perfectly fine, especially for its relatively low price. The rooms were very clean; not fancy, but better than I even expected. The beds were very comfortable, and the bathrooms were impeccable.
The people at the front desk were also nice; not sure why others would think otherwise. I found them to be very kind and respectful, as is often the case in Morocco.
If you have at least a few hours in Casa, be sure to go and visit the main mosque right next to the sea. It's magnificent in its grandeur and in a lovely location. One of my most beautiful memories in Morocco is of chilling out on the sea walls next to mosque, just chatting with and watching the young kids diving repeatedly into the sea! :)
Overall, I found this hotel was comfortable and with its own special charm. I recommend it as a good intro to Morocco upon arrival...you will coast the rest of the time! On the way back, I booked with the IBIS in the newer part, for practical reasons. I was pleased with both places.
