This is the second time I visit this hotel, it's well located just in the center of the city, everything is very close .. 10min walk to train station .. coffeshop just near the hotel .. the reception is pretty cool and helpful .. they even sent their guard staff to pick up luggage with me till the train station in a very late hour .. the hotel is a good choice for short term stay and for person looking for strategic location to visit all the town ... however it's quit and don't expect to have fun there (no bar ..). It's a place to sleep and quite safe to keep ur lugagge ( u can leave them in the reception ). Considering the very low price ($25 for 2 nights) the room quality is awesome (simple) ! Just pick up a room that doesnt open to the street!
This Hotel is across the road from Rabat medina. It's pretty expensive for Marocco (384+tax), the rooms are small and there is no hot water in the shower. However, they have wifi and in our room, we enjoyed the quietness of the backyard. Still, its not good value.
Stayed here a couple of times with friends. Good location but basic, lacking in character and not particularly cheap (by Morocco's standards). Had one night with a terribly noisy large group in an adjacent room but other nights fine. Great views from the front if you can get a room on that side. Adequate for a short stay but wouldn't want to stay more than a couple of nights.
Hotel Majestic is not quite cheap enough to be budget and not quite interesting enough to be nice. What it turns out to be is a serviceable, bland hotel convenient to the medina and the train station. OK for a one day stay (which we did), but I would look for something else if you are going to spend more time in Rabat (which is well worth a couple of days). Absolutely get a room in the back. I can't image how anybody can sleep through the noise in the street side rooms, which you can hear from the hallway.
I chose the majesctic because it was right across the entrance to the medina, although quite far from any other attraction. Location is perfect and there are a lot of restaurants and shops around but this is pretty much the only thing the hotel has for itself. While the rooms look OK, if you look closer you notice that the cleanliness is arguable, the appliances (if still there) do not work and it is noisy even if you have a room with a rear view because you can hear your neighbours' conversations. That's not the worst though, the staff does not understand what service means. They seem really annoyed if you ask them a question. They gave me a coupon to get breakfast in a cafe nearby but they did not bother explaining to me where it was, just that it was outside and when I asked more details, my question was welcomed with a big sigh like I was really bothering them. The aslo refused to call me a taxi or even help me call one. The service and hospitality were really bad. I travel a lot and I have been in a lot of budget hotels in a lot of countries but this was by far the worst staff I have ever met.…
