“Way too overpriced for the value they offer”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2014 via mobile

This guesthouse is way overpriced, at least the room we book which was the less expensive,  called Houcina (770 dirhams/70€), and for that price I think we should have gotten much more quality or for that quality the room should be much more cheaper.....
For that price and less we have stayed in much better maison d'hotes and riads in Tanger, Fez and Marrakech where everything was so much better: the house, room, decoration, breakfast, etc.

Our room was in the basement, small and not nice. The bathroom was good size but the shower was very old, both the hanger and the shower itself were broken, so it was not comfortable and water came out in many directions. And the sink was clogged. One would expect that the cleaning staff should had noticed that when cleaning the room...

Room was a little noisy due to traffic in nearby street, but nothing too bothering.

Breakfast: no fresh orange juice, but bottled... which was a real pity as the oranges in Morocco are fantastic. It was the only place we stayed in, out of eight riads/guesthouses, were they didn't serve fresh juice.
Rest of breakfast was very simple and not tasty at all.

Summing up: very expensive for it's value.

Stayed January 2014, traveled as a couple

We also stayed here for one night at either end of our stay in Morocco, as relatively accessible to both the airport and city centre.
The rooms were very good and warm. We had found a general problem with rooms being cold in Morocco in December, but not here!
Bathroom a little cold but a fan heater was provided.
We also ate an evening meal here and the food was excellent.
The staff were very helpful.

A friend and I stayed at Dar Tahra in Casablanca for our first night in Morocco (September, 2013) and then our last night as well. It is special. An old mansion, run as a B & B by the family, it is all tile and plants and carved wood. There's a small pool outside in the garden. Unusually for us, we had dinner there both nights, and that was a wise choice: the cooking (done by a family member) is superb and plentiful - great tajines. The rooms are charming. The family couldn't be nicer or more helpful - actually drove us to the airport very early in the morning when there was difficulty getting a taxi. Highly recommended!

This was a lovely experience, not a typical impersonal hotel, this feels like a home from home. The garden and pool are lovely and relaxing amongst the bustle of Casablanca.
The décor is beautiful, bed super comfortable, great tub bath and the little touches such as tea beautifully served with little cakes! The staff were really friendly. It was a shame we only had one night.
It's also really easy to access from the airport.
