“Of all the Bars in all the World - Casablanca”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

We recently stayed in this hotel whilst touring Morocco. The hotel is in a very busy area of Casablanca with lots of traffic noise - fortunately we were only here for one night. The room was okay but could have been cleaner, however, the bed was comfortable and clean. Breakfast was okay there were lots of pastries! We found the staff not particularly friendly and they never seemed to smile. The whole of the
hotel could have done with some TLC and the colours could have done with being brighter which would have taken away from the darkness of the rooms. If you want to have some peace, although it is still noisey, ask for a room at the back of the hotel. However, if you want a coffee guess what their is a Starbucks opposite the hotel and the guys in there were lovely.

Room Tip: A room at the back of the hotel and if they ever do a refurb ask for one of those as well rather tha...

I stayed two nights in the Idou Anfa on a business trip to Casablanca. I chose the hotel because of it's relatively convenient location not far from the Casa Port train station (but far from the main Casa Voyageur station) and near the American Consulate. The breakfast buffet was quite good with a wide variety of both Moroccan and Western choices. The rooms are clean and comfortable though the decor is a bit dated. Everything worked which is really all I need for a business trip. I found the staff very polite and helpful and willing to bring me whatever I needed. The bar on the 16th floor is great - a wonderful view and decently priced drinks. For guests not happy with the hotel food, there are plenty of good restaurants within walking distance (head toward the consulate) and a Starbuck's across the street.
Casablanca is not a tourist city. It is the business capital of the country and most tourist don't spend more than a day or two there. Don't use this hotel if you want to experience the Moroccan way of life, but for business it is quite satisfactory.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on one of the higher floors. They are quieter than those nearer the busy street.

I just spent two nights at this hotel and I do not understand why there are so many negative comments. They accommodated me by letting me have a room early in the morning (my flight arrived at 6:30 AM) and I found the room to be clean, spacious, and well kept. The linens were first class and the bathroom nice. The hotel has a pool and a hamam. The staff went out of their way to be helpful and kind. The breakfast buffet was more than adequate with a good choice of foods to choose from. I had dinner one night in the hotel and the food was fine. II would definitely come back!

Find another hotel.....its just not worth the effort, time, or money. The buffet breakfast is a joke, the candy I purchased from the gift shop was spoiled, my chair was broken in my room, the bathroom was dity, and on and on. Just bad, bad, bad!

The hotel reception is very smart but the rooms have not been renovated for a very long time! For me the most important part is the bathroom and the linen. The linen was fine :) The bathrooms are worst, with chipped blue and white tiles, rusty mirror, tiny bath/shower and a falling shower curtain. Besides that, there is a disturbing sound (similar to someone hitting a drum erratically) all the time!

I stayed there for one week.. good solution. Big clean rooms, a few restaurants and a few bars. People polite and gentle.. At 16th floor there is a nice bar with great view on the city versus Hassan II Mosque. One buffet restaurant and one Moroccan restaurant. Good enough to come back..

Dirty smelly carpets in the corridor and in the rooms... leaky AC in the room as well... and this was the second room I got in the same stay because the earlier room had a locker that would not work... very poor fare on the breakfast table with limited options...
the up side was that the rooms are spacious, not so clean though, staff is quite cooperative and helpful, may not be very courteous and polite as such... but that is it by and large for the hotel.
I would hesitate to come back to this hotel...
