Nice, clean, and simple. Friendly staff. No real atmosphere.
Good place to spend one night. Close to the big mosque!
Great value for money, very pleasant staying! The whole place has a decadent atmosphere that could be solved with a cheap refurbishment but to tell you the truth the city sens to share the same atmosphere, but the main points were there. I had a good mattress, toilet and shower into the room, the breakfast was very satisfying (I left behind the boiled egg). The staff members were very helpful but not really talkative. The neighborhood like the rest of the town doesn't look safe.
It has a really good quality-price relation and a good breakfast, although there are some things which we didn't like at all. The showers are so small that the water falls into the toilet and although my friends could have a hot water shower mine didn't have hot water. When we arrived the guy at the reception didn't pay any atenttion to us and the one that was during the nights was really nice until you ask him for something. I would recommend it if you dont have too much money.
Roofteracce is pretty nice, staff as well, breakfast was satisfying but as we stayed there in january and it gets very cold and the windows are not insulated we didn't have a heater as said in the description. The second day we've seen one on the corridor and "stole" it for the next night. Also there were no hairdryer as said in the description and showercurtain also was missing, so the whole bathroom was wet after showering.
near to city centre and Hassan mosque, large room, was not totally clean (e.g. cigarette butt left in ashtray)
We enjoyed our stay as the hotel is very well located and quiet. The staff was alright but felt that we were disturbing and had to ask several times for a remote control that worked for the tv and also for toilet paper as we were out of it.
Arrived in late december, the temperatures were below 10 degrees C, and the room was not well insulated, but blankets were available. The bathrooms were quite clean and worked well. Breakfast was included and quite good given the price, although the coffee was bad.
The room was very clean, the water hot and I enjoyed the view of the square from our cute balcony and the roof-top. Thank you for all your recommendations and information. The map was very helpful.
Tthe front desk staff was helpful and friendly. The room was sweet, fairly basic. Hotel is walking distance from anything I found to do there. What else is there in Casablanca? The first day breakfast was bread, butter, jam, yogurt, olives, hb egg, piece of cheese. I was pleased with that. The next day I had a dif waiter. No egg, no olives. The guy next to me received them. When I asked, instead of being apologetic he acted like he didn't want to give them to me : solo fem. in Musl Country?
Much more like your basic travelodge-ie big hotel, basic rooms but clean. One large room for the free breakfast which was basic but fine (continental). Very hard to find/get to even by taxi as down tiny streets in medina. Better to get dropped off on the Main Street nearby that goes directly to the Mosque II. The mosque is walking distance and beautiful-worth oaying to see inside.
very nice budget hotel. Charming old house with basic standard but clean and friendly.

The shower was not even remotely warm. The hotel is ok, but is not Worth the price... The breakfast is pretty good though.

Great location, but the room was a little dark. The breakfast was very good.
If I travel to Casablanca again, I will likely stay at another hotel/hostel.
The good thing first: it is very central in the Medina and the guy is quite helpful and friendly. On the other hand the room was dirty, very basic and old. I had a used tissue under my pillow :-( I can not recommend it because of the value for money. I would not complain it it would have been really cheap!
Hotel Central feels a bit old and forgotten, but this is part of its decadent charm. It is located on a nice square in the old medina. Huge rooftop terrace available with a nice view. The guy at the reception is nuts but funny.
very bad hotel. my iphone5 and cash got stolen from the room, and they did nothing to help. hostelworld.com should check the hostel before let them use the website to screen only good one for travelers.
4 October 2013. I Checked in at Hotel Central 20, Place Ahmed, El Bidaoui –Casablanca, Morocco Tel. +2120522262525 I left my I phone 5 and money 295 Euro in the room and they got stolen from the room. I asked a man at the reception. He admitted that the hotel has spare keys. I asked him to call someone who can make decision about this situation. Then he called Bourhim Abdelmrek (phone 0661245533). But both of them didn't help anything also the police help nothing. Very bad hotel !!!
it was good hostel. nice breakfast, cleaner than other hostels. we stayed well there
