“4 stars hotel with 3 stars staff and service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

Check-in was OK because I am a platinum Accor card holder. Room was OK because the hotel is brand new, bed also...BUT the room was not cleaned properly for a 4 stars, also the staff for the room service are not smiling at all, more if you order a simple small casear salad (almost 10 Euros, cold chicken not grilled!!!!) and do not give any tips. By the way, the hotel is located next to Casa main railway station. DO NOT TAKE the white taxi in front of the hotel, just walk 30 meters and get a red taxi, the price is up to 10 times cheaper if you want to go to any place in Casa. Same for the airport, take the train to Casa Voyageurs station, 6 times cheaper than a white cab.
The staff are not friendly except the door security guy. There are small 3 stars hotel in Casa with more friendly staff and better locations. I think more stars the hotel have and less friendly and more arrogant is the staff ;-)
By the way, the apple pie is very very very expensive, 15 minutes by walk you will find very good restaurant and bakeries.

Room Tip: Choose on the back of the hotel, to not hear the calling prayer

This hotel is VERY westernized, and that was my favorite thing about it. It was clean, modern, AC worked well, and very close to the city center, the port, and Rick's Cafe. Easy walk to all three. There really isn't that much to say about it; certainly nothing unpleasant except that it was more like a Hilton or a Hyatt than any of the other hotels we stayed at--sadly lacking in atmosphere unless you are looking for a convention hotel. On the other hand, we arrived here toward the end of our two-week tour, and I was frankly glad to see a place where everything worked like it's supposed to.

I decided to stay here for my first few nights in morocco so that I could adapt to the time change and ease into the culture. As a solo female I wanted to ensure I was in a good location with helpful staff. This hotel was a fantastic choice :)
The rooms are exactly as pictured which was a pleasant surprise. Very clean, modern and the windows also open. The tv has a few english channels, the minibar was stocked with typical beverages and I had plenty of towels and pillows. Also I had free wifi in my room which was incredibly helpful.
What really made this hotel wonderful was the staff! My French is horrific but thankfully most of them speak English :) They assisted me with walking directions to a small grocery store so that I can purchase snacks, made sure the red taxis would take me places with the meter on (most never wanted to turn it on which would then be double the price) and they always made sure I was doing good. Everyone had smiles and a very helpful attitude. It was highly comforting to know that they were there if I needed them.
I ordered room service two nights and it arrived quickly and for spaghetti it was good. I paid for the food in cash and while the server never had change on him he always came back several minutes later with it. The staff here works hard so don't forget to tip ;)
My room had a sea view with great views of the mosque. It was nice to relax by the window at sunset while enjoying some tea.
in many hotels room service will simply enter your room at anytime... Not here! I wanted full peace and quiet sometimes and they always respected my do not disturb sign. I left it on for two days. Then when housekeeping saw me emerge from sleeping in late she rushed to me to ensure I had everything I needed.
I'm checking out today and headed to different parts of morocco.... This was definitely a great hotel to start my trip with!
Tip: when u exit the hotel turn left and follow it down to the main road. Cross the Main Street (watch out for all the cars!) and there is a Pizza Hut. While I love to eat local cuisine I find it fun to try fast food places at least once on a trip as the menu is incredibly different than in the states.

Hotel is modern and fuctional as you would expect. Comfy bed, clean bathroom and drinks facilities in the room which for some reason I wasn't expecting, so quite a nice surprise. Location is quite good – fairly central and easy to get to both the train station and Hassan II mosque and the lovely old souk. Staff at Reception were nice. Breakfast is disappointing with only a very limited choice. Lobby was quite smoky, but that’s something you notice in Morocco as smoking is still allowed indoors. Eurgh. Luckily it is quite a big lobby so it’s possible to squash up against a wall away from the smokers!

Spent two nights in a Superior Room with view of the sea and Mosque. Lovely bright room, not huge but very adequate. Good bathroom with plenty of space and good towels. Tea and coffee in the room. Lovely breakfast and very pleasant staff. Costs about 50 MAD in a taxi from Casa Voyageurs and withing walking distance of the centre of town and the Mosque. Was very pleasantly surprised with the quality of the hotel, would definitely stay here again as was good value for money.

Room Tip: Superior rooms with a view are definitely worth the extra
