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.


Good place to stay. Me and my gf stayed there for one night and it was nice. Room was clean and the location was good.


Warm shower, decent bedroom, fine price!


Made a quick stopover in Casablanca and stayed here for an evening. Facilities were clean, hostel was easy to get to and to find on the map, and staff were friendly and helpful.


The man at reception had a great sense of humour and livened up an otherwise mediocre hotel. Location was great, near the Hassan II mosque, Ricks cafe and the train station.


I stayed for one night, and went to pay the next morning, for starts I had to wait about 45-60 minutes to be able to use the card machine as the paper roll had run out. Then the very same guy that checked me in the night earlier claimed I had stayed for 4 nights and tried to charge me 600dh (about 60 euro), when I pointed it out he changed it to to nights and charged me 300dh. As I already paid the deposit, the actual amount owed was about 100dh. Its common but I expected a hotel to be honest.

I just needed somewhere to stay for the night before getting the train to Marrakesh, so this place did the job just fine. The hotel is about 5-10 minutes taxi from the train station, on the edge of a quaint little square. The room was clean, smallish, nicely decorated, hot shower. Breakfast was decent, although the the man at the front desk was a bit grumpy checking me in/out. I would stay here again, but only for somewhere to sleep for a night, there's not a whole bunch of atmosphere.


Some of the staff memebers were friendly and some really rude.


Old building so while rooms are cleaned well, they don't seem clean at first glance. we had no problems though. Location is convenient next to the last train station but tourist attractions are far. There is an official post office to exchange cash right next to the hotel, best rate I saw in Morocco (1 night Casablanca, 4 nights Marrakech). Wifi worked well. Breakfast is definitely worth it for how cheap it is.


I liked this place. The building itself seemed to have a lot of character. The location was convenient and my room was nicer than I expected.


My friend and I had a wonderful time at Hotel Central. It was our first stop in Morocco and were welcomed by a very friendly and helpful staff. Thank you!


Location is the best advantage to stay here, close to Hassan 2 mosque and local market, I only stayed there for one night, everything was fine, oh, they serve nice breakfast


We had a nice time at Hotel Central. It was in a good location and we had no trouble finding our way from the hotel through the old medina and back again. Probably best for a one to two night stay.


Location was good, close to the train station and the old market. Compared to cheap crappy hostels it's alright, but as a hotel goes it was really awful. Towels were dirty, the room didn't have air conditioning nor heating so if the temperature isn't perfect you will either sweat or freeze. Breakfast was okay but nothing fancy. Walls were paper thin. The view from the roof terrace was spectacular, except for the buildings nearby which were covered with trash. Not worth the money! Go elsewhere.
