Jnane Sherazade

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I stayed at Riad Jnane Sherazade for a short one night stop over. It is a great hotel in a beautiful setting with a large terrace downstairs and terraces off the rooms on which to enjoy the sun. The hotel staff were kind, helpful and attentive and went out of their way to make my stay pleasant.

Janine Sherazade is a wonderful safe and secure retreat from the madness of Casa. The staff attended to our every need from the time of making the booking - nothing was too much trouble. Altering bed arrangements was no problem, and comfortable and safe transfer from the airport was seamless. Enormous, very comfortable, traditional and spotlessly clean room with giant bathroom including a bath! Delicious breakfast and dinner on the terrace, and a stocked bar fridge in the room (including ice in the freezer!). Attention to detail included glad wrap over the glasses to ensure cleanliness! We stayed for 2 nights upon our first ever time in Morocco, have stayed at 6 other hotels around the country and had not a second thought about returning to this fabulous establishment for our final night, as we felt assured of comfort. Not to mention it's located within an easy 5 minute stroll to the new medina which is a joy to wander through and shop as compared to the hectic old medina experience. Also well located to the tram and train network for ease of travel into the centre of town, Hassan II Mosque and the old medina. Would recommend to any class of traveller.

This is my first Moroccan experience and i found the Rhiad quaint with a beautiful garden midst a city of concrete and not much greenery. Yes it may be a little antiquated but if you don't want to experience the true essence of Casablanca go to the Hyatt. - Room/ comfortable & clean - Breakfast / good although i think it should be included - Transfer/ turned up to the airport (doesn't always happen )& was easy to find - Bathroom/ clean although there were some interesting manoeuvres getting in & out of the bath - Staff/ very accomodating Cheers Joan from Melb Aust

Room are tired. Location is out of the way. Need a cab to get to the main attraction areas. Better to stay on the coast. Difficult to find staff when you need them. Breakfast is good, freshly cooked pancakes.

The simplest things you'd expect at any hotel end up being extremely complicated. The wifi network is very weak or nonexistent, the staff shouts at you and argues with you every time you ask for their help, and the rooms are so dusty that everyone in our group had severe allergies during their stay. Would discourage any guests from staying in this hotel.

Very difficult to find. What you pay for initially is not even close to your final bill (they just keep adding stuff, including parking.) The breakfast room is so pretty but the breakfast was atrocious and we were being served by just one lady who literally refused to give us second helpings. Rooms are nothing to brag about.

...poor and shabby neighbourhood - some taxi drivers couldn't find it. Over priced wine at 600MAD, available elsewhere for 200MAD. Dead and dying cockroaches in my en-suit bathroom. Only one other guest stayed there and for only one night, nobody in the restaurant. No hot water one evening, none the following morning and no members of staff there to rectify it. After two nights, they wanted payment for the rest of our seven day stay! We thought it might cease trading while we were there.

This hotel was not a great experience for me and I am reluctant to say that I echo many of the other reviews and struggle to see how the rating is so high for this hotel. I really don't enjoy rating properties so low however a combination of many circumstances below average contributed to my rating. Similarly to other guests: *Litte or no English speaking staff- whist the staff did try on most occasions to be helpful the lack of Engkish or minimal spoken English made for a check in that was next to useless and other attempts to gain tourist related information and advice verty very difficult *Rooms good size *Bathrooms immaculate *Breakfast was great however should not be at an additional charge and should be incorporated into the room rate *Outrageously expensive airport transfer rates- book your own!! *Quiet location out of the city centre so if you're looking for an out of the way hotel this would work

We picked this place based on fabulous reviews, however it did not live up to our expectations and led us to question our upcoming reservations. First, the riad is very out of the way! You must take a taxi to get almost anywhere. There are few taxis that run past the riad, so add 15 minutes to the time you need to get anywhere. It appears to be located in a quiet residential neighborhood. Returning to the riad, many taxis did not know where it was. Fortunately, they gave us a hotel card with a small map on it. This helped taxi drivers. The room was out dated. The sofa in the nook was in bad shape and led to a poor nights sleep. The bathroom was quite nice. It was large, and did have a separate room for a toilet, so that was nice. There was also a mini bar, so if you wanted a cold beverage, it was in the room. The owner was very nice and tried to please, but his English was quite limited, as was most of the staff. Breakfast was not included. We paid a surcharge for breakfast. It was a lovely breakfast with delicious pancakes. However I feel that it should have been included in the price as it is in most other riads, and it is so out of the way, we had no other choice. I would not recommend this place if you want to tour Casablanca. If you are looking for an escape, it is a good choice.

I recently stayed here based on the #8 rating that Tripadvisor gave this hotel. This hotel is deserving of such a rating. The rooms are old and outdated, the prices are not the best, the location is in not easy to get to and most taxis get lost trying to get here. Breakfast is not included and staff doesnt speak English. I went around Casablanca and noticed many other hotels which looked and felt much better than this one. Tripadvisor needs to revise this rating and lower it as it is misleading to show such a low quality hotel at #8 and let them charge rates which are meant for better quality hotels. Pros: - Nice staff - Quiet - Large rooms - Good Wifi Cons: - Old rooms / bad smell - Bad location - No English - Old building - Looks and feels like a 1 star hotel
