“Lovely exterior but normal train station”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

The station is fine and fairly easy to get around as there are not a lot of platforms to navigate. Our experience at the station was painless and we easily found our train. The first class train tickets to other cities are cheap and highly recommended as they guarantee you a seat and the first class carriages are air conditioned and comfortable. Plus you may get a chance to talk to your fellow travellers and gain some insights or useful information.

“Where are these trains ?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

The building is quite nice but most of all, the building seems to be enormous knowing that there are in fact very few trains coming to or leaving this station. The architecture is not to bad, but on the inside it's not that special. Instead there is the opera, opposite the station, that is being renovated and where we had someone showing us around, which was more interesting.

“Not much to see”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

It is not a touristic spot. However, it looks nice from the outside and clean from the inside. I liked that it is well connected to the rest of the country and well controlled and free of beggars and pick pockets.

“Stunning design a must visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013 via mobile

The outside of the station has absolutely stunning architecture, clean grounds and few restaurants in the vicinity. The inside has really big open spaces and its at it best when the light hits the glass panels at the front. Inside has modern tones with most aminities and really clean. Just few meters away is the taxi stand and also the Royal theatre which was closed durring my visit but worth taking few pics off.. I took the train from Casa Voyage to Marrakech and was quite happy with the trains and service received bit make sure you get first class coupe its much better and more specious and comfortable.
