“Perfection, especially if you like jazz”
Reviewed January 20, 2012

I was in Rabat on a business trip and had the hotel booked for me by my local contact. Excellent central location, five minutes walk from the railway station and the trams. Fifteen minutes walk from the medina down a fine shop-lined C19 French style boulevard. The hotel rightly promotes itself as an 'urban hotel'. No gardens, No balconies. Good modern rooms

Great hotel. Very international but with a strong French-Moroccan character. Live jazz in the ground floor restaurant three evenings a week. Very atmospheric to the extent that as a non-smoker I was able to tolerate the cigarettes rapidly extracted by a decent ventilation system. A very good place to which to return

Room Tip: I suspect they will all be very similar. Some face the street. Others face a courtyard at the back...

Le Pietri Urban Hotel in central Rabat - 5 minutes from the main train station, 3 minutes from the new tram line - is on Rue Tobrouk, just off what was called "Place Pietri" in French protectorate days. The hotel has a good restaurant, and a very active cultural calendar, with its Jazz Sessions on weekends. The staff is very friendly, and the accent is on value for price. Limited parking right in front of the hotel. I stay here regularly on business trips from Tangier. Wouldn't stay anywhere else in Rabat.

Room Tip: There is free WiFi throughout, and a private conference room. The internal courtyard rooms are quie...

We picked Le Pietri Hotel mostly for the location and price. Although we flew in to Rabat, its practically a stone's throw from the main train station (about 3 blocks). We left Rabat via train so the location was really welcome when you are traveling with bags. We also felt very safe in the location. The neighborhood was nice with several cafe's and pastry shops nearby. It was only a 10 min walk down to the medina. We stayed here again at the end of our trip before flying out of Rabat.

The hotel has pretensions of being a really hip, cutting edge place, but the rooms themselves are pretty simple, yet quite comfortable. The room was also spotlessly clean. The bathroom was fine, nice shower, but soaps and shampoos were from dispensers. I'm personally not a big fan of these. The best thing about this hotel is their restaurant/bar. Really nice atmosphere and it appears to be the "coolest" place in town to listen to music. There is frequently live entertainment. We ate dinner there and the meal was of excellent quality. I would highly recommend eating here. I

The only real downside I can find is the lack of any internet connection for their guests. We were sent somewhere down the street, and ultimately had no success. The front desk however, was willing to get information (train schedules) for us from the internet. The front desk was also very helpful giving us information upon arrival, restaurant recommendation etc.

Prices in Rabat are surprisingly higher than the rest of the country. But La Pietri was in a perfect location and was a great value in the city

Well situated hotel in Rabat : near railway station "Rabat ville"; very kind reception ; friendly people; efficient and discrete service ; comfortable and clean rooms; restaurant held by a French "chef" proposes good cuisine with wide variety of dishes including of cours delicious tajines.

You get what you pay for. This is not the Tour Hassan or the Sofitel Diwan. This is an outstanding 3 star hotel. Super location next to the Rabat flower market, smiley and helpful team, standard room is small and simple but is highly functional and well done. Excellent satellite TV. Nice small terrace with wi-fi. One of Rabat's better restaurants. Highly recommend.

We spent three nights at Le Pietri and wish we could have stayed longer! Nice modern hotel (room was quiet and comfortable), great breakfasts ("help yourself" selection included almost everything from scrambled eggs and toast to delicious Moroccan "pancakes"/breakfast breads and sweet, freshly-squeezed orange juice).

By the second night Le Pietri started feeling like our home-from-home. The staff were lovely and very welcoming. Extras worth noting are the free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel, free parking in the street in front of the hotel for guests, the excellent restaurant (breakfast, lunch and dinner) and, best of all, the live music sessions on Tuesday nights in the relaxed lounge-bar-restaurant downstairs (great atmosphere) which Le Pietri is well known for.

All in all a wonderful stay.
