“Average hotel at good location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

Based on reviews here I expected a good hotel. But the room I got was basic, old and tiny. There was barely room for my suitcase. A small window with old curtain looking out on the quiet street in front of the hotel.
Also the room didn't seem spotless and there was a bit of a smell... maybe just because it was old. I was glad to stay only one night.
To me it gave the impression of an old budget hotel. More and old Ibis hotel than Mercure.
No local flavor, all standard and plastic.

On the good side since the street is quiet there was not much traffic noise.
Also location is good, walking distance of city Zouk, old town and Rabat beaches and sights.
The restaurant is busy and the food is ok but standard western style.
Also breakfast buffet is good but nothing special.
Wifi was free but very slow.

We spent two nights at the Mercure Rabat Sheherazade and it turned to be a good idea. The hotel is very near Rabat Ville train station (5 minutes by taxi) and also from the tramway (station Tour Hassan is 400 metres away). If you are touring the city, start by walking north to the near Tour Hassan and mausoleum, and then down to the river and Kasbah des Oudaias.

Rooms are clean and of a good size, beds are comfortable and the bathroom is big and nicely decorated. Wifi worked fine. The room was a bit cold. TV signal quality was not good. The view is not that nice even if you get a room overlooking the street.

One of the best characteristics of the hotel is the restaurant. Buffet breakfast included in the price is very good and I personally think the restaurant at the hotel is the best option for the evening meal, not pricey and good food overall. The waiters at the restaurant are very kind, always trying to help the guests.

I would recommend staying at the Mercure Rabat to enjoy this beautiful city.

I was coming to Morocco for several months and needed to have already booked a hotel for a few nights when I arrived until I found long-term accomodations. I could not have found a better hotel. The staff at the front desk, in the restaurant and the maids were warm and welcoming. They quickly answered any questions I had. The room was large with air conditioning which was nice in early June. The bathroom was large and well equipped with a large shower and very nice absorbent towels. The bed was large and very comfortable. The TV had many channels available and the free WiFi connection was very good. I stayed for three nights and ate breakfast and dinner at the hotel. The dinner menu is excellent although a bit pricy by Moroccan standards, but the preparation of the food was excellent and the service very attentive. The breakfast which is a buffet included in the price of the room is outstanding: there are pastries, several types of breads, cheeses, fresh fruit, meats, omelettes made to order, juice and coffee. The last night I was there I told the waitress that it would be my last night at the hotel since I had found a long-term, less expensive hotel in the medina. She gave me a dessert and coffee on the house to show the staff's appreciation of me. The hotel is about a twenty minute walk to the center of Rabat. I can highly recommend this hotel.

Clean rooms, and quite area, facing the hotel there is a mini market, the breakfeast is good with french baguette, cheese, fruits, coffee. The reception is fine.i dont much about the location, but sounds not far from touristic attractions, it has also a nice view.

A solid hotel that has minimal frills, sufficient comfort, cold beer, and a decent wifi signal, plus a decent breakfast spread. Don't expect anything in the mini-bar, and you have to chase the staff around to get an iron to press your shirt (and figure out your own ironing board), but it is a solid 3 star hotel that gets the job done at a fair price.

I have been staying in the Hotel on and off for about 9 months now but for some reason keep missing to write the review! Located around 15 minute walk from the main city centre, it offers reasonable quality standards (it say 4star but 3 would be nearer). Cleanliness is good, good restaurant (the breakfast is great compared to a lot in Morocco) with friendly helpful staff.
