Hotel Central

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

With only one night in Casablanca (already too long in this city..) , the hotel is in a decent location. However it is close to a large industrial port which, along with a lot of street activity, made for a noisy location. The main point though is that it was simply unclean, with hairs on bedding and surfaces not wiped down in the bathroom. I would not stay again.

The location is quite good.near the train station,near the mosque and you will feel the vibes of good old place.. it is clean and they provide you only the essential which is good.the receptionist was very helpful and accommodating to all our questions.

The hotel is conveniently located near the Casa Port Train Station which one can take to access the airport which is very convenient and saves money on having to take a taxi otherwise. The hotel is on the outskirts of the Medina and right in front of the hotel are eateries, coffee shop and banks to get cash. The room itself is pretty tight but spacious enough. The biggest issue at the hotel are the paper thin walls. You can hear guests throughout the hotel talking and their doors closing. So, if you are a particularly light sleeper you may have issues with getting a good night's sleep. Overall, the hotel is solid and as expected given the price range.

Very surprising find in Morocco. Very clean room with added amenities like soap and shampoo. Extra towels were given to us without a problem. Very nice girl at receptions who even helped us print our boarding passes and gave us a great lunch recommendation nearby. Highly recommend this centrally located hotel.

A friend and I, two women in their early 60's, stayed at Hotel Central on our arrival to Morocco and again, before our departure, four weeks later. Somewhere it says that Hotel Central is in the heart of the medina, in fact it is on the very edge, but, it is a very convenient location. From the airport, we caught the train to Casa Port. From Casa Port, it is a 5 minute walk to the hotel. One of the staff, very kindly, walked me to Casa Port the night of my departure. The staff was equally helpful in carrying our luggage up and down the stairs for us. The hotel is a great base for exploring that part of the city. We walked to the mosque (take the tour, fabulous!), Rick's Cafe (not worth the time), then a taxi further along the shore. Of course, the medina is right behind the hotel, particularly the gold and silver merchants. Breakfast was not part of our room rate. I ate breakfast there once, then in the medina the other morning. It was the typical riad breakfast with slight regional variations. The rooms we stayed in and pretty much as shown, although the pictures seem whiter, brighter! The staff was excellent, giving directions, suggestions of where to eat, places to see. Keep in mind, it's not a 5 star hotel, but it is clean, comfortable beds, hot water, convenient location, friendly staff, things that are much more important.

This hotel will not be anyone's cup of tea, but I LOVED it... Rooms: Bare bones, a bed, a table, a chair, a bathroom with hot water in the shower but only cold water in the sink. If you're really lucky: A balcony with chair and table overlooking the square in front of the hotel and with sea view. This might sound less than appealing but I LOVED the room. I slept 11 hours in the wonderful bed and loved writing on the computer looking over the square. Heating/ A/C: There is no A/C but I was here in November and my problem was that the room was getting too cold. But the hotel DOES HAVE space heaters, so if you have that problem.... ask for one. WiFi: Suffered from occasional interruptions but FAST! Other: There is no elevator (not suitable for those with mobility issues). On EVERY landing of the revolving staircase, there is a hot-water kettle for common use, as well as a table with a selection of BOOKS. Truly Charming ! Staff: The most amazingly NICE & HELPFUL receptionist I have met in over 2 month of once-around-the-globe of travel. Shakram! Price: Overpriced for those looking for tangible amenities; cheap for those looking for memorable ambiance ;-) I most certainly will stay here again the next time I'm in Casablanca !

The price was right for the triple room we booked. Nice and quiet (in the late evening) with a cute balcony that faced the square. The front hotel staff were exceptionally kind and the breakfast food was plentiful and simple. The bed was very comfortable which was an added bonus after a long flight. Minutes away from Hassan II mosque and walking distance to the tourist area. Located in the medina but right near the edge where it wasn't chaotic. All in all, a decent clean place for very little money.,

It's an old and charming hotel but quite expensive. Located inside the medina but strange people usually roam around the park in front of it. Very knowledgeable but not-that-cheery reception guy. The bed was hard, local channels were the only available on the TV, old bathro and toilet but we had a great view on our corner room. Sunset-viewing at the roofdeck was lovely. A so-so hotel and we will definitely look for other alternatives on our next trip.

I stayed one night here. The room was nice and comfortable size for a solo traveller (eventhough the room occupancy are for two) but the shower was just average for me. Most of the staff were helpful and friendly :)

We checked in for two nights 5/9/18 - 7/9/18 and got our room at 3rd floor. We were given the sea view and left the window-door open to let the wind breeze to flow in. I had the best sleep of my life. Room 325 is perfect!!
