“A good starting point for a tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2012

Having been misdirected by our travel company to the Hotel Casablanca (which was indescribable) we arrived weary and rather wary at this hotel, where a welcoming cup of mint tea was waiting. The room was freshly refurbished, and had a nice balcony - although the view in this part of town (and most of Casablanca as far as we could see) was nothing to write home about. The facilities functioned perfectly, and it was clean and comfortable in every respect. Breakfast was served in a small back room dining room - a bit spartan, but with a good buffet spread where one could choose what one wanted. There was also lovely fresh orange juice provided. This part of town is rather dead at night/weekends, although I am not sure how the rest of Casablanca compares. The hotel is however a good starting point, and if the rest of the tour had offered a similar standard one would have felt fully satisfied.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with balcony overlooking the front of the hotel

The hotel lacked the charm of riads in other cities, but the staff was helpful and the rooms were clean and comfortable. We had a balcony with a nice view of the street, the bathroom with all its fixtures worked well, and the beds were comfortable. It's in a good location near the central market but not far from the medina. Breakfast is decent- croissants, coffee, juice, butter, jam, pastries etc. The restaurant is a good place for a meal with tasty food at good prices.

I agree with the other reviewers who have given this place an "average" rating. I can't say I was disappointed since frankly I did not expect much. The hotel was recently renovated, and the room we stayed in was large and comfortable enough for the price. However, the bathroom was really awful. The shower worked, but because the nozzle could not be adjusted to point anywhere but against the wall, it was awfully hard to take one. The plug did not work in the tub, so it was impossible to take a bath. The tub in which the shower was located had so wide a lip that my wife actually bruised herself trying to get out of it. Moreover, neither of the TVs (2 of them!) worked. Nor did the air conditioning. The front desk made absolutely no effort to help us when asked for assistance with these problems. And I do mean absolutely no effort. The woman did not even look at me when I reported on the air conditioning. She simply shrugged and continued to do whatever she was doing while sitting at the front desk. This was typical of the behavior of the staff throughout. They all acted like they would rather have been anywhere else, and had absolutely no interest in anything having to do with the hotel or assisting the guests. Finally, the breakfast was adequate, but only barely.
In conclusion, the only reason I give this hotel an "average" rating rather than "bad" or "terrible" is because the room itself and the bed were comfortable, there was a decent view out the window, the hotel did arrange for a taxi to take us to the airport very early in the morning, and the room was relatively cheap. Frankly, Casablanca itself seems awfully seedy, so it isn't too surprising that one of the better hotels in town should be also.

Stayed here only for one night - the place was clean and felt safe but there was not much around to do - very quiet at night. There are a bunch of other hotels nearby and a two minute walk will take you to a main street where there a variety of shops, internet cafes, etc. The hotel offers free WIFI and the typical morrocan breakfast (bread, cream cheese, marmalade, boiled egg, morrocan pancakes, orange juice (not quite fresh)) which was pretty decent for what you pay. My room was clean and had a good air conditioning system - would stay here again except you have to take taxi's out of the area is you want to go do stuff i.e. head to La Cornishe which is the fancy Beverly Hill's of the town.

Our group chose Hotel Maamoura because of its location – three minutes walk from the Central Market. We’ll be returning there soon with pleasure, not only because of the location but especially for the super – friendly hospitality offered to the guests by Manager Mr. Mobarak and his staff .If it made the guests more comfortable then nothing was too much trouble!

The rooms were spotless,quiet and the air conditioning functioned well and without undue noise.

We enjoyed delicious Moroccan tagines, Couscous, Tangia and BBQ chicken at a nearby restaurant : “L’Etoile Centrale” opposite the Central Market.

Our transport ,a Mercedes Sprinter 2011, arranged by Arys Transport was very satisfactory.

We’re already looking forward to our next visit in December.

They were nice enough to keep the room for us til 4 AM (our flight from Essaouira had been canceled)... Room was fine, although the bathroom was rather humid. Did the trick but it felt pretty expensive for what it was... Didn't get breakfast got it looked pretty bad...
