“So-So Stay”
Reviewed December 19, 2013

This hotel was definitely a budget hotel. The rooms are small and the bathrooms are old, but things are clean and the price isn't bad. If you are going in the winter, though, you should know that there isn't any heat in the rooms - so it gets rather chilly!

My friends and I stayed here in February 2013 for three nights. If you are looking for a fancy hotel, this is not for you. But if you are looking for a more unique and traditional Moroccan experience for a good price, this is the place for you. It is located very central, in the heart of the life of the city and close to the medina. It is not always quiet, but you feel as if you are getting a more real experience of Moroccan life. The owner is friendly and so helpful. Anytime we needed information or anything at all, he arranged it for us. He gave us good tips and took care of us. The rooms are not fancy but have everything you need. A very good price if that is important to you. We had a great stay there.

I stayed in this hotel for two days, first day and last day in Morocco. The room was equiped with basic facility. There is television, but AC is not available in the room. They provide towels, shampoo and soap.,WIFI was just available in public space. It's located in Medina, very closed from the main road, and only 15-20 minutes walking to Hasan II Mosque. The breakfast is average. The receptionists were very friendly and kind. I could make a booking through email. It's suitable place if you want to stay at budget hotel (this is the cheapest one that I could get in Casablanca) and don't plan to stay long. From Casa voyage, I took petite taxi and cost me 20 Dirham for one way.

This is a budget accommodation and it looks more of a hostel than a hotel.

The location is nice and in the Medina and is only 15 mins walk from the Hassan 2 mosque. it is also close to the cafe.

the rooms are very basic with just some linens and no toilet supplies. the rooms are located on several floors (I think 3 or more floors) and there is no elevator so keep this in mind if you have lots of big luggage. The room has TV and has no AC. If you are lucky your window might just open on the square side where you might have some chance of winds. Otherwise you'll be peeking into other windows if your room is on the back side specially at night when you have to leave your window open.

What can I say about this hotel? First, if you are on a very low budget, this might be a perfect hotel for you. It´s located in the Medina, and for some foreigners that might be "scary" enough. We had rooms looking out on the open square that results in quite a lot of noise during the night. There are also two minarets - at least - close to the hotel, so be prepared to wake up at 5.30am. My bed had fleas, especially under the pillow. Killed about 15 before I fell asleep. Bathroom get all wet while showering. No AC. However, the staff was friendly, breakfast, coffee and tea was good and the receptionist made us a good shisha in the evening. WiFi quality is like most of the low-cost hotels in Morocco. This was only working in the reception area. We were four guys staying there, and had no doubts going in the medina behind the hotel after dark. We actually had our best tangine made in one of those small cafes on our 10 days in Morocco this time. All in all - if you are on a low budget, this hotel is ok. Get some insect spray first. Breakfast and friendliness of the staff is a 4 star. Cleanliness and comfort of the rooms is unfortunately only a weak 2 star.

4 October 2013. I Checked in at Hotel Central 20, Place Ahmed, El Bidaoui –Casablanca, Morocco Tel. +2120522262525. After checked in I locked the door and went out. I left my I phone 5 and money ( 40 Euro+11,000 THB) in the room and they got stolen from the room.
A man at the reception he admitted that the hotel has spare keys. I asked him to call someone who can make decision about this situation. Then he called Bourhim Abdelmrek (phone 0661245533). But both of them didn't help me any thing so I asked for the police. Two policemen came but did nothing and left. I never have this experience before that my things get stolen from the room ! very bad hotel and no responsibility !
