“Badly Needs Revamping”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

Ten years ago this hotel may have deserved its stars and justified its high rates, today no longer. Past a first good impression of the lobby and bar, rooms are in poor shape, appliances and bathrooms need fixing or better maintenance, towels smell, the breakfast offer is limited, spa and pool are minimalistic. However the location is convenient, close to the old town, and staff keep smiling.

Room Tip: If you prefer a quiet sleep to a nice view, opt for rooms overlooking not the Marina but the back st...

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

Feels like a 2-star property trying to be 4-star. Stayed for 1 night as part of a multi-city tour of Morocco. Very central location, near the harbor and medina. Room was spacious but cleanliness could be improved.

We got the room on the first floor, right at the end of the corridor with the window overlooking the guard post. The noisy traffic could be a disturbance to others but as it was our first night and we were tired from the long journey, it didnt bother us till the next morning!

Room Tip: Request for high floors!

Don't understand why this hotel gets such a bad rap. My wife and I stayed here and thought it was better than average. Sure, it caters to alot of tour groups, but they've done a pretty decent job of upkeep. Our room was clean and we thought the location was great. Enjoyed sitting on the top deck watching the chaos in front of us with the traffic and kids actually hitching rides on the back of the city buses. Extremely dangerous, but unfortunately, quite entertaining. Fortunately, no one got hurt.

The hotel is extremely close to the Medina and convenient to the harbor. The only downside is the smoke in the lobby from the bar area. Unfortunate because it hits you in the face as soon as you walk in the front doors and the first floor area around the check-in desk just wreaks. But, once you get beyond that, the rest is decent. The food was good and the bed was comfy, so we had no complaints. Would definitely recommend. That is not to say that it's one of the best hotels I've stayed in, but it definitely isn't as bad as you'd be led to believe from reading some of the reviews here.

The hotel is well located with a wonderful view of the bridges and roads that links the main town to Marina. Very close to the Medina and the center of Town. The hotel lobby is quite good however there was no much smoke from the bar which made sitting in the lobby very uncomfortable if you are not a smoker. Parking was also a problem and you sometimes have to park outside the hotel premises. The food was okay however of the waiters and house keepers did not understand English. Anyway I enjoyed my stay at the hotel.

Room Tip: The rooms facing the main road

I stayed at that hotel on 09 JUNE 13 . Had a terrible experience with the door man whom i asked to show me the toilet . That man told me that there is no toilet in the lobby area. To my surprise , i found it. I asked that man to give me some explanation for his lie. He told me that the toilet is only for hotel residents only. i told him that i was one. He laughed and told me to use it. My travellling friend told me that she had the same response from that man few minutes ago just before me. We confronted that man again to ask for explanation for his strange behaviour. He could not give us a logical answer except that it is only for residents....... who are we then at that hotel?
REALLY INSANE !!!! Got really disgusted! i will never set foot in that hotel again.

This is a hotel in a great location and while its rooms were adequate for our needs I question how this hotel could have a 4 star rating. It is sadly in need of a major refurbishment both inside and out. It is a hotel which caters for tour groups and I was saddened to see for breakfast one morning that additional tables and chairs had been placed in a corridor adjacent a breakfast area to cater for the tour group overflow. Is this really the value a hotel should demonstrate to tour coach guests? Great location. Shame about what could be a good hotel once more..

Room Tip: Rooms at the front of the hotel have good views

After our stay in Fez, Rabat felt like an oasis. This hotel was centrally located near the water and the medina. The breakfast was quite good in comparison to some of the other hotels we had been in. My one criticism was the amount of smoke in the lobby and everywhere else in the hotel. Morocco seems behind the rest of the world in terms of limiting areas in which people may smoke and it is a real negative for an otherwise enjoyable experience.

Room Tip: Ask for a non smoking room
