“high price, low standards”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

Rooms are very old, they need renovation. Wifi was extremely slow (skype calls were failing). The breakfast was very poor and the evening restaurant was totally disorganised. The overall quality was unacceptable for a hotel that charges 220 EUR a night.

We must have struck lucky here, for we had a very spacious room overlooking the river. View from the top floor terrace was amazing and had we been there in summer, the roof top pool would have been a temptation. Pancakes at breakfast were cooked as you waited and were delicious.

This isn’t a great hotel, its old and the rooms a bit shabby. Staff are ok, while I had no problems, I saw a number of people checking out and had a lot of complaints and the staff seemed to be responding quite rudely.
The location of the hotel is good though, its within walking distance of the Kasbah and the old walled part of the city.
I didn’t eat in the hotel or use any facilities so can’t comment. I was only here for a few nights, and it was fine for that, but if I was here for longer I’d look for somewhere slightly more modern and comfortable.

Recently spent one week at the Golden Tulip, Morocco. If you are just looking for a place to sleep and shower, this hotel will suit you well. During the 6 days that I was there, the wifi was not working for 5 days. They blamed it on the weather. The coffee shop one block away had wifi during the same weather. The workout facility is practically non-existent. There were 2 treadmills and 2 cross-trainers…of those, only one cross-trainer was in working condition. The breakfast buffet was included in the room price. If it wasn’t included, I would have found somewhere else to eat. Same breakfast every day, and nothing spectacular. The dinner buffet, which I only had once, was very limited and over priced at $23. Some of the items left us guessing as to what they were…eggplant? Maybe mushrooms? The bed was comfortable, but just a very thin sheet over the mattress. No mattress cover. The bathrooms were decent.

The room was reasonably spacious with quite large beds, a sofa, coffee table, a big wardrobe and desk. The bathroom was neat and functional. But the in room safe was missing. We were on the first floor with windows facing the street and noticed that the opening was secured by steel bars. This is a safety issue as one could not escape thru the windows if the corridor is on fire.

The dining facility is not up to par and the food is rather poor. We had buffet for dinner and breakfast. There was a large volume of food but very limited variety and lacked quality. The service provided also failed. I noticed a cake knife from the dessert table had fallen onto the floor and notified the waiter who just picked it up, wiped it on a napkin and put it back on the table. One would’ve expected the dirty knife be taken to the kitchen and be replaced with a fresh clean one. Hygiene standard is low and staff poorly trained.

This hotel is satisfactory for only a short or an overnight stay. Given the opportunity I would look for another hotel.

This hotel is just a short walk from the Tour Hassan and the Mohammed V Mausoleum and there are excellent views from the top floor.The food was only average and there was a decided shortage of cutlery-one of the waiters presented me with a soup spoon as though I had just won a prize. The prices for room service items were outrageous and the wine waiter would only accept cash-no charging to the room.We also failed to get the room safe to work but did not contact reception as we were only staying one night.If we visit Rabat again we will look for another hotel.

From the outside it looks fine, our room wasn't great, bed didn’t look made & the bathroom is the only thing that looks good, looks like they spent all the money on the bathroom.
We had a restless night because the room was noisy & air conditioning wasn’t working great, called reception to get maintenance to look at it & I should have never called.
Whilst sleeping a staff member walked into our room, lucky I was awake & it gave me a shock, my fiancée was scared & couldn’t get back to sleep she was furious. I spoke to hotel management & he advised, we thought the room was empty – good one mate next time check your guest book. No iron available in the entire hotel & the room safe remained locked from the previous occupants; other guest staying also mentioned this to me at breakfast. Room safe wasn’t secured & you could just pick it up & walk out with it. Anyway it was only one night thankful for that. Sorry about the review I hope you guys take it on board.
