“Great location, fine hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2013

If you're coming to Rabat for tourism, this hotel has a great location very close to the Hassan Tower and Mohamed V Mausoleum and Chellah ruins. Not too much on the street by way of shops, however. We arrived late at night and the reception was wonderful and friendly in dealing with a very large crowd. Unfortunately, one of the rooms smelled quite bad upon entering, but after airing out it was fine. I would not recommend staying here for romance or with someone you don't know very well as the bathroom door was very thin with slots in it so definitely not noise-proof in the slightest. Beds were comfortable but set up in that very European fashion of 2 twin beds side-by-side even though you may be here on business. Shower was quite nice. As for breakfast, it provided a good variety of choices with yogurts, Moroccan crepes, croissants, fruit, coffee, juice, water, etc. Restaurant also had a nice courtyard to eat in. Breakfast staff were nice enough. Haven't stayed at many other hotels in Rabat, so not sure how it stacks up. I'd say it was not quite as nice as some of the other hotels I'd stayed at in the Mercure/Ibis chain but perhaps worth it for the location, friendly reception.

I am staying here and so far the standards are poor. Comparing to Le Diwan Hotel in the same Accor chain, the quality is far apart.
Room: broken shower door hinge, wash basin plug locked so that basin will not empty, shower pipe was split. These were fixed during the day.
Food: for evening meal i ordered Fillet Steak 140MAD with Casablanca beer 55MAD.. Entrecote Hwas delivered undercooked and the meat was very fatty/grissly.i.e. low quality meat. Waitress asked me after if i wanted another but i declined, and was not charged.
Breakfast: this was satisfactory. Totally self service except the option for freshly cooked eggs which is a good feature.
There are better hotels in the same price level like Belere, Le Pietri.
Wifi: free and my room had good reception.
Room: comfortable bed, aircon worked ok, TV has no movie channels. The furniture is old.

In comparison to other hotels visited in Morocco it is not the worst but certainly not up to the level one would expect from a Hotel Mercure. Restaurant meal, noisette d agneau , I've often picked more tasty meat from between my teeth than there was on the minute bones served up. Unfriendly restaurant staff. Reception quite good.

This was a good hotel in a reasonable position close to trams etc and not far from the station. The bed was comfortable with a cosy duvet and nice and clean. We had a corner room which gave us plenty of room and a view of the street. Bathroom was OK but the towels were a bit thin and worn. Breakfast was good with fruit, cheese, ham and cooked eggs and pancakes. All the staff were very nice and tried to be helpful even though their English was limited and my french leaves a lot to be desired. Overall it was a pleasant stay and good value for money.

The staff of the Mercure in Rabat was so pleasant and helpful providing for a easy and good stay. The location is decent, but the amount of noise that comes through the walls from adjacent rooms and the street is not good. I had a good sized room, while my colleague's room was too small. We had originally made reservations for a week earlier and the price was right, but when we had to delay our business trip the price went up and seemed a little high.

Based on reviews here I expected a good hotel. But the room I got was basic, old and tiny. There was barely room for my suitcase. A small window with old curtain looking out on the quiet street in front of the hotel.
Also the room didn't seem spotless and there was a bit of a smell... maybe just because it was old. I was glad to stay only one night.
To me it gave the impression of an old budget hotel. More and old Ibis hotel than Mercure.
No local flavor, all standard and plastic.

On the good side since the street is quiet there was not much traffic noise.
Also location is good, walking distance of city Zouk, old town and Rabat beaches and sights.
The restaurant is busy and the food is ok but standard western style.
Also breakfast buffet is good but nothing special.
Wifi was free but very slow.

We spent two nights at the Mercure Rabat Sheherazade and it turned to be a good idea. The hotel is very near Rabat Ville train station (5 minutes by taxi) and also from the tramway (station Tour Hassan is 400 metres away). If you are touring the city, start by walking north to the near Tour Hassan and mausoleum, and then down to the river and Kasbah des Oudaias.

Rooms are clean and of a good size, beds are comfortable and the bathroom is big and nicely decorated. Wifi worked fine. The room was a bit cold. TV signal quality was not good. The view is not that nice even if you get a room overlooking the street.

One of the best characteristics of the hotel is the restaurant. Buffet breakfast included in the price is very good and I personally think the restaurant at the hotel is the best option for the evening meal, not pricey and good food overall. The waiters at the restaurant are very kind, always trying to help the guests.

I would recommend staying at the Mercure Rabat to enjoy this beautiful city.
