“Sofitel Rabat Jardin des Roses”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

Great location, friendly reception, really comfortable beds, great facilities. Only areas of improvements - we booked an executive room - the ensuite only had a bath versus shower/bath - the executive lounge seemed a little uninviting - but room service was excellent.

Room was spacious, quiet and comfortable. It was a very pleasant stay in a well located hotel. Very nice amenities although very little time to use them. The breakfast buffet offered good variety but service was a little off.

After 2 different trips in Rabat during which I have stayed in Riads, this time I was ready for something more. The main reason for the switch was related to the needs of a business trip. Better internet access and a calm place, mostly. The presence of a good bar doesn't hurt either :^)

So what about it? It's absolutely wonderful. It must be said the gardens in the back are amazing and when the weather is fair, it's a lovely walk. Eating and/or drinking outside is also a must.

The rooms couldn't be cleaner and more comfortable. The bed allowed me to get the best sleep possible and the automatic Nespresso machine allowed me to wake up in the morning. The bathroom is perfect, with a very large and efficient shower.

The service is top notch of course, as is expected of places like these. The only downside to this hotel is its location. I like being able to walk to different places and this one is a bit on the far side of the interesting bits in the city. And that includes other restaurants. The exception to this is for Chellah, which can be reached with a nice 2km walk and is a must-see.

Oh and the breakfast buffet, while delicious and very varied, is on the expensive side. At that price, one could eat for a week in the medina :) Better to find a rate where it's included so you save some there.

All in all, if you are in Rabat for business, this is the hotel you want to be staying at.

We stayed in this hotel on our last night in Morocco as part of a tour group. There was a conference on at the time and I believe every hotel was booked and our group was upgraded to stay here.
I have stayed in plenty of five star hotels before, however I have never stayed in one with such beautiful rose gardens and aromatherapy rose oil diffused into every hallway. Everything smelt like we were living in a fragrant garden.
Our room had a good view of the guards, heavily armed, so at least we felt very secure. Bed was very comfortable - the best one of the tour. Good size bathroom, heated towel rail helped get washing dry. Everything else spoke of luxury - great toiletries and excellent selection.
Gym was well equipped, plus a golf driving range and tennis courts.
Room air conditioning was not working properly, outside temperature was pleasant so we opened the balcony doors at night and enjoyed the fresh air. Hence we noticed the security guards.
Due to our group early departure (6 am) to get to the ferry for Spain, breakfast was a disaster, however I believe this was the fault of the tour group not the hotel. The dinner buffet the evening before was outstanding- it was difficult to choose because everything looked exquisite!
We would love to come back here and spend a week enjoying all the facilities.

I satyed at the Sofitel Jardin des Roses for three nights in March 2013 while in Rabat on business.

Some luxury hotels feel like museums where one doesn't feel at home but that wasn't the case with this particular Sofitel. The brand of luxury served at this Sofitel though was very welcoming and balanced. The spacious lobby welcomes passangers and the service at the reception was extremely friendly and efficient both at the time of the check-in/out processes as well as at other times. The room (Luxury Room Club Sofitel class) on the 8th floor was great; spacious and well equipped with sweeping views over Rabat towards the ocean. The room was perfectly soundproofed, not a sound could be heard from the hallway or from outside. And the bed was exquisite! Floor 8 also houses the Club Millesime where snacks were always available and a light breakfast was served in a more intimate atmosphere than in the main restaurant on the ground floor. The Amber Bar on the ground floor was excellent for a nightcap with some live lounge music and snack available.

The hotel is located a bit outside the city proper in a fairly quiet area close to the highway towards Casablanca and transportation to/from Casablanca airport was arranged as agreed.

All in all I don't generally stay at hotels like the Sofitel (as can be seen from my other reviews) but I have to say I quite enjoyed my stay and if there are no price constraints will definitely stay again and recommend to friends/colleagues.

If you are visiting the capital of Morocco, I believe Sofitel Rabat is the hotel to stay in. It is modern, well maintained, and for a business traveler, ideal for the quiet and comfort of the rooms. The staff is incredibly pleasant and helpful, and the restaraunts are very good. The pool and grounds are at or above the standards of any other world class hotel I have stayed at. The hotel manager was incredibly responsive and personally committed to making sure any concern I had was addressed -- his attitude sealed my loyalty to Sofitel for the future. This stay was perfect.
