Had a lovely stay at hotel central. Unfortunately was very expensive for what you get, but that's how Casablanca is unfortunately. Positives: Great comfortable beds. Great shower/toilet. Lovely owner. Location is fantastic in the old medina. Good included breakfast. Negatives: Expensive No backpacker atmosphere


first experience alone in a Moroccan hostel. right by the old medina, and a very friendly staff. Will be here next time I'm in Casablanca.

Hotel Central was located off of a busy square, however the front entrance was not secured. When we arrived the staff member at the desk was very drunk and the situation was quite unprofessional. The beds were tidily made and the room could be locked from the inside. There were no lockers, however, and the facilities were poor: no toilet paper, and the shower was situated right next to the toilet with no enclosure/curtain. A cat meowed loudly all night and kept us awake much of the night.


Only stayed a night, the staff was very friendly and accommodating!


Great place to stay! I needed something close to the train station and this was perfect. Very cute room with a balcony looking out into the square. The staff was very helpful and friendly when I arrived. Great place!

This place looks kind of sketch in the beginning... But it quickly grows on you! Our room was a corner room and we opened the windows at night and it was nice! Not much of an AC or heater.


you get what you pay for.


Guy at the front desk was hilarious, helped to make our stay more fun! Rooms are clean and good for what you are paying. The hostel is close to the mosque and Rick's cafe and a short walk to public transporation.


This Hostel/Hotel was ok. Bit of a mission checking in with backup staff, but when the main guy came in he was nice and helpful. Wifi issues and no map of the Madina, just a very average map of the town. NOTE: Good location, but be aware that if your catching the train to Casablanca it's unlikely you arrive at the train station close to them (CasaPort) you'll likely arrive at Casa Voyageurs and have to taxi to the Hotel. CasaPort does However take you to the airport every hour on the hour.


This hotel is well located in the old medina and at a very reasonable distance to the tram and the place des nations unies. The owner and the waiters of the bar next door are very nice. Cleanliness is ok. The roof top is amazing !! I would go back for my next trip to casa


Fantastic! A place of rich history and stunning views


the at the reception is always watching soccer or out side at the door chatting with locals he is helpful but he seems like the guy not to be bothered i spent one night and i day and was always the same guy no wonder he don t like to be bothered


The hotel was dirty and old. Room was big, with tv and a little balcon but bathroom was dirty and stinked


The dude at the reception was really friendly and easy to talk to, answered all our questions quickly. The room was fine, nothing special but the beds were clean and it was cool looking down to the square from the balcony. Our cupboard didn't lock so there wasn't an extra secure location for our gear but we could lock the room so it was all good. Overall a good basic place to sleep while exploring Casablanca.


We arrived in the middle of the night to find the receptionist not standing post at his desk, although he did give us a bigger room and only charged us for the one we requested. The Wifi didn't work very well from up in our room, the bathroom didn't have soap, and the shower got water everywhere. On the other hand, the 30 dirham breakfast was worth the value and this hotel is close to major sites like Hassan II Mosque and Casa Port train station. Overall would definitely consider returning!


We signed up for a room with 3 beds, for 4 adults. We emailed to be sure that was ok, and the response was yes. When we arrived, there were homeless people outside drinking and cat calling the girls we were with. 2 people got into a fight right there. The owner when we went in, would not allow us to have 4 people in the room. We showed him the reservation and he said he didn't care. He tried to charge us double. We were left outside at 1 AM with all our luggage, and nowhere to go.

Checked in late and guy at the front desk gave us an attitude. No AC. didn't shower here because we were grossed out. Sheets were not clean. Slept on top of the blankets and checked out as soon as we could in the morning. Mohammad was nice, breakfast was decent.
