“Still good 4 years after first stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Again in this hotel. From my previous experience, the hotel show signs of age and minor details should be controlled, such as sound insulation (poor) from outside traffic. The toilette was leaking (internally) and one of the sockets was not working (problematic as this is the one for PC plugging). On the positive side, there are plenty of power sockets available and handy. Breaktast is still good and had tried dinner in the restaurant and I was surprised for the quality. Not cheap but a very good choice for eating, with good service. All in all and 4 years my previous comment, I still recommend this hotel for Casablanca.

Room Tip: Ask for upper floor rooms if you want less noise from traffic

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

We stayed at this hotel as part of an Atlas Voyages coach tour at the beginning and end of our tour. In bound, the room we had was good (with free WIFI) if you can overlook the rusting edges of the bath tub and a malfunctioned glass partition that led to shower water leaking outside the tub. Comfy duvets but some found the mattresses a bit firm but were fine with us. Breakfast was presented well and service attentive. The location is ideal as it is 10 minutes walk to Lonely Planets' Walking tour (which is hard to follow as the little alleyways have no names) and the Corniche (and Hassan II Grand Mosque:second largest in the world) is 20 minutes walk one way. ATM machines are unreliable and you may have to try a few before you hit the jackpot to get some dirhams. The outbound stay at the end of our Tour was short (one night) and the room we had was a corner room (#05) with none of the defects in the first room. The "last supper" however gave me food poisoning which manifested itself when I was airborne. The culprit I suspect was a cold vermicelli with baby shrimps salad as my travel companion had exactly the same foods but minus the culprit dish. I was sick for the next 48 hours.

Room Tip: All windows have thin glass so traffic noise is annoying and Casablanca is not a quiet city. Pick a...

The location is great, about 30 minutes walking away from the sea and Hassan II mosque, however it will be still not easy to find a taxi in the morning, if you walk around, lots of restaurants and places to hang out, cutting to the chase, the break fast is great, but on my last day they refused to host me at the breakfast at 10:37 (breakfast ends at 10:30. No complimentary water, TV channels are not worth the watching, no sports, no clear print, free wifi but very poor signal and disconnects a lot. Concierge and bell boys are very helpful though :)

Room Tip: Don't choose the rooms facing the elevators, no city overlooking view

Quite a good hotel, checked in on the day of our arrival in Morocco. The rooms are spacious and clean. They have a free wifi that allows for the usual ritual of checking your phone for email as well as recommended sites in a foreign land. They serve a hefty choice of continental cuisine during breakfast. I had a good night sleep in this hotel; the room was clean and does not smell. Their toilets even have handle bars for the disabled. The staff were friendly and engaging, it was too sad we had to leave the next day for excursion to other places in Morocco.

Room Tip: Their dining area don't open as advertise but the staff were very courteous.

Check-in was a bit chaotic as the room we were assigned was not ready yet. the room itself was: water dripping from the ceiling, shower not working - no water. Then the front desk sent someone up but this person was not able to repair it - the person looked more like room service then a technician.
Breakfast was good.
If returning to the city, I would choose a different hotel. This stay was disappointed.

slept one night, very nice room, very clean and silent. Only the view is horrible.

Breakfast was good, well organised and the food was tasty.
Difficult to order a drink in the lobby bar, takes a very long time before somebody comes to take the order and then it took even longer to serve the drinks

I spent 4 days at the Barcelo Casablanca for a private visit. The hotel is very well situated in a fairly upscale part of the city. Staff was helpful and rooms are very clean, comfortable with nice views, free internet. Overall, the experience met expectations. Only negative comment is the fact that the place definitely felt like a business hotel with very little if no atmosphere. I wish the hotel had a fitness facility.

Room Tip: Rooms with a view on the Hassan II mosque are recommended but not a must. Rooms have large bay wind...
