Whilst this hotel may be convenient being located next to the train station in Rabat, that is about all it has going for it. We stayed there for one night at the start of Jan and couldn't wait to leave the place, it just filled us with a feeling of misery!! Yes it is cheap, and it is convenient but there is no way we would ever stay there again.
For one, it was cold, cold, cold, cold, absolutely freezing. No heating, and not enough covers on the bed. What covers there were did not feel clean and the sheet they put on didn't even fit the bed so half of me was sleeping on mattress all night! It made for a very unpleasant night, and people especially with little ones beware.
The room was dirty and very, very dusty. The bathroom was dismal, not even a shower curtain! Yes there was hot water (what a pleasant surprise, we were really doubtful we would have any) but the towels looked so old and filthy I could not bring myself to use them. The bathroom was not clean.
The door to our room was completely dodgy, refusing to shut on several occasions with wood splintering etc. Whilst management tried to be helpful I suppose, there was a language barrier. We could have asked for a different room I guess, but I suspect if one was dirty and dusty, so were the others.
In fairness we may have had a different experience if we had complained......maybe......
So in short, I would not reccommend this place, unless you are going to sleep in thermals and bring your own towels and linen, and give the place a good scrub whilst you stay!!. As I said, it is cheap so it depends what you're after. And it is a convenient location.
