“Noise!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

The hotel is good, but overpriced, since all services are bought in much more cheaply than hotels with the same standard, and price in e.g. Scandinavia.

What was unbearable was that the hotel housed a nightclub that was churning out thumping music until 4.45 a.m. After the first night we were told it was a 'one off', but it wasn't. We had to change room three (3) times in a week in order to get a room that we could sleep in. You could still hear the music, but on an acceptable level. But we were very tired by then!

Room service took 1½ hours to get us some tea. Any tea for two, since they claimed they didn't have Moroccan tea. Which they eventually turned up with. For one person.

We needed to be in a meeting at a certain time. Asked them to get us a taxi, but since it was raining they couldn't. But they did lend us an umbrella, so we could go out an haul one ourselves. :/

Room Tip: Make sure you get a room on floor 3 or 4, on the left hand side when you leave the elevator, towards...

For many reasons (see also the other comments below) this hotel is not recommended.
The room was terrible as regards temperature and atmosphere. The food was rather deplorable. In any case I was lucky enough not to hear the disco sound.

If you like your loud music till 2 at night, this is the place for you. If not, I suggest you go to another hotel. It is a pity as otherwise this could be a great deal. Clean, friendly service and good breakfast.

Merci d’avoir pris le temps de nous communiquer vos commentaires concernant notre hôtel. Vous nous voyez assurément désolés d’apprendre que votre séjour n’a pas été à la hauteur de vos attentes. Pour faire référence à vos commentaires concernant le bruit, dans ce genre de situation, notre procédure standard voudrait que nous mettions à votre disposition une chambre supérieure située à un étage supérieur.

I stay agt this hotel for one night in January of 2013 and found the service to be excellent, the food tasteful and the neighborhood quiet and nice. The rooms were clean and spacious, with free internet in each room. The hotel management went out of its way to accommodate the needs of the group that I was traveling with. I would definitely recommend it.

I am staying at the hotl for business and the 2 first nights were terrible. Next ones were ok. I was so tired...

The hotel is ok -clean and average amenities. So you can go there. Not far from the Center, places to visit, ambassies and with good Internet connection. Everything is ok until comes the night...
Then the 2 night clubs and 3 restaurants start to make unbelievable sounds. Yesterday night, lady and a man speaking in the street. I am staying on the 4th floor and heard the entire conversation as if I was with them.

Tips of the day:
1- if you go to the rive, ask explicitly for a room on the west side of the building opposite bars, clubs ...
2- do not expect to use Skype or any similar service while in morocco. Network operators have set strong limitation policies toward VoIP services.

Hope it helps

Good location for what I needed very clean and comfortable room but this hotel caters for large groups which were very noisy and meant poor sleep quality. Most of the staff are very miserable except one night manager who was amazing sorry didnt get his name, the others make you feel you are interrupting their day often on mobile phones and very non attentive. Quite a clinical feel to the public areas just lacks attention to detail

Room Tip: away from the street side and away from the nightclub
