We spent 7 nights in Marrakech and decided to take a train to Casablanca. The fare is 90 dirhams each way and there is a train every 2 hours. It’s a 3 hr 40 minute journey

This hotel is the perfect location for a 2 day tour of Casablanca (you really don’t need more than this). Can I mention that this hotel actually has *working* and FAST WiFi all over the hotel, including our room which was up on the third floor?! We stayed at a 5* Resort whilst in Marrakech which claims to have WiFi but it only worked when standing awkwardly in the lobby.

The hotel is a 5 minute walk to the centre. Along the way you’ll pass dozens of stores that sell good quality branded handbags etc.

Locals are extremely friendly and they *all* warned us to keep our phones out of sight when walking through Casablanca streets because it “WILL get stolen”. Go to KFC (5 min walk from hotel) for dinner and order the spicy chicken. You won’t regret it.

Breakfast was perfectly adequate and hearty. 1 croissant and 1 bun, 1 cheese triangle, butter, jam, 1 boiled egg, orange juice, tea and coffee.

We were also provided with complimentary toiletries which was a pleasant surprise. Neon pink bath soap and multiple sachets of Pantene shampoo

There is an authentic Moroccan Hammam directly opposite this hotel. Do visit it. Entry is 12 dirhams and you can buy the “Savon Noir beldi” portion for 1 dirham And also a loofah glove for amazing results. Very cheap and definitely worth the experience.

Don’t waste your time at Morocco Mall, it’s big, but what’s the point in all the m^2 If half the retail spaces aren’t in use and the ones that are in business are tired and sell nothing special? One entire floor comprises of a deserted arcade and canteen. The only “nice” shops are Zara, Bershka and H&M, however, they’re MORE expensive in Morocco (who’d have thought), soooo don’t waste your time because the stock is exactly the same. London’s Westfield is one hundred times better than Morocco Mall.

Many thanks to the host who never stopped smiling and laughing.

This guesthouse is not the best one but good enough for a couples of nights. Rooms are quite old and showers too small but that’s not a biggie at all. It was close to train station (Casa Port), Hassan II Mosque and the centre ( United Nations square) and the price was good enough. Recommended for those who are looking for an affordable place to sleep and have breakfast included.

This is my first review ever. Please do not go here. What a nightmare. I felt like someone was pranking me based on how horrible the service was at Hotel Central. I booked a room for a night and paid a deposit. When we arrived, Abdul, the man at the front desk, informed us that he gave away our room to somebody else. He didn't take responsibility for his inexcusable actions and it was scary to see someone be so insensitive. Such a terrible experience and I would never recommend this place to anyone.

We got a free upgrade to the familyroom with 3 single beds and in a separate room with a queensized bed. Very friendly people. The breakfast was good, there is a playground 500 m away in the direction of Hassan Mosque, which is in walking distance.

No, of course "Casablanca" wasn't filmed here but it carries a time-warp to the early 20th century. The building has seen better days but in a place without a big choice of budget hotels, it's not bad. In fact the winding staircase (minus lift/elevator) is one of its best points. The rooms are a bit basic and the service on the slapdash side but the setting is in a pleasant if somewhat run-down square in the medina (the youth hostel is here too) with an assortment of eccentric locals.

They serve continental breakfast, with a backing of pop music. Most of it is indifferent but I was treated to Santana's version of "She's not there"! If you're lucky you may get a room overlooking the Atlantic.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the square, with the ocean beyond.
