“Fantastic Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

We stayed here five nights this month doing business in Rabat and it really deserves to be a 5-Star property. The facility is immaculate and as you walk in the fragrance of roses and the entire lobby excites the imagination for what to expect at this hotel.

The restaurants, spa, lovely grounds in back, proximity to historic sights, including the Royal Palace are some of the factors making this place a desirable place to do business or enjoy a vacation.

We had a nice room with a good view and the bedding was such that we always had a nice sleep.

The staff will attend to every need without being too intrusive.

We like the buffet and normally we don't say this about buffets but this place could show Las Vegas how to do a real buffet of highest quality. The Moroccan restaurant next door was good but a little pricey and for that kind of money it should be better. So we'll give the buffet a 5-Star and the Moroccan place a 4-Star
The bar at this hotel is spectacular and we had a drink and an appetizer of calamari with a tangy sauce was out of this world.
The little lounge/breakfast area was a favorite and the staff was so nice to us every morning.

This place was part of a package with a trip we did on Royal Air Maroc and the price was quite reasonable compared to booking the hotel separately.

We're heard it is the best hotel in Rabat and no doubt, the best hotel we've stayed at in an urban area in quite some time.

Room Tip: Fourth floor and higher will be good.

I stayed at this hotel for the last four nights of a 5 week 35,000 mile business trip and it was excellent. The bed and pillows were among the most comfortable that I have experienced in a hotel. The service was excellent, the food was good and the atmosphere was relaxed. The room was very well equipped. The wifi was good enough to download an iTunes movie overnight and for video Skype. My room overlooked the front entrance but it was very quiet. My coworker said the garden side was preferable.

Room Tip: The garden side of the hotel is preferable

Staff was excellent! Houda and Imane at the front desk were helpful and professional. The gardens were beautiful and the rooms are clean and spacious. The spa had staff who assisted me with my workout routine. Treadmills were sturdy and the spa was clean.

Thank you for the hospitality.

Room Tip: The odd numbered rooms have a great view of the gardens and surrounding neighborhood.

Great location, friendly reception, really comfortable beds, great facilities. Only areas of improvements - we booked an executive room - the ensuite only had a bath versus shower/bath - the executive lounge seemed a little uninviting - but room service was excellent.

Room was spacious, quiet and comfortable. It was a very pleasant stay in a well located hotel. Very nice amenities although very little time to use them. The breakfast buffet offered good variety but service was a little off.

After 2 different trips in Rabat during which I have stayed in Riads, this time I was ready for something more. The main reason for the switch was related to the needs of a business trip. Better internet access and a calm place, mostly. The presence of a good bar doesn't hurt either :^)

So what about it? It's absolutely wonderful. It must be said the gardens in the back are amazing and when the weather is fair, it's a lovely walk. Eating and/or drinking outside is also a must.

The rooms couldn't be cleaner and more comfortable. The bed allowed me to get the best sleep possible and the automatic Nespresso machine allowed me to wake up in the morning. The bathroom is perfect, with a very large and efficient shower.

The service is top notch of course, as is expected of places like these. The only downside to this hotel is its location. I like being able to walk to different places and this one is a bit on the far side of the interesting bits in the city. And that includes other restaurants. The exception to this is for Chellah, which can be reached with a nice 2km walk and is a must-see.

Oh and the breakfast buffet, while delicious and very varied, is on the expensive side. At that price, one could eat for a week in the medina :) Better to find a rate where it's included so you save some there.

All in all, if you are in Rabat for business, this is the hotel you want to be staying at.

We stayed in this hotel on our last night in Morocco as part of a tour group. There was a conference on at the time and I believe every hotel was booked and our group was upgraded to stay here.
I have stayed in plenty of five star hotels before, however I have never stayed in one with such beautiful rose gardens and aromatherapy rose oil diffused into every hallway. Everything smelt like we were living in a fragrant garden.
Our room had a good view of the guards, heavily armed, so at least we felt very secure. Bed was very comfortable - the best one of the tour. Good size bathroom, heated towel rail helped get washing dry. Everything else spoke of luxury - great toiletries and excellent selection.
Gym was well equipped, plus a golf driving range and tennis courts.
Room air conditioning was not working properly, outside temperature was pleasant so we opened the balcony doors at night and enjoyed the fresh air. Hence we noticed the security guards.
Due to our group early departure (6 am) to get to the ferry for Spain, breakfast was a disaster, however I believe this was the fault of the tour group not the hotel. The dinner buffet the evening before was outstanding- it was difficult to choose because everything looked exquisite!
We would love to come back here and spend a week enjoying all the facilities.
