Located in the heart of medina overlooking the ocean, the hotel looks better from outside than inside the room. Breakfast was rather plane, WiFi wasn't working and staff were polite only occasionally, so we were glad to only have one night to spend there.


Totaly overpriced. Does not even look like a hotel.-looked to me more like a cheap hotel for workers. One of my three worst ever


Not worth 400 dirham. At all.


No heating system, one day no hot water.


The place was clean and secure, no complaints. This is a good "one night only" hostel. If you've just arrived in the country or if you're about to fly out the next day, this is a good place to stay. On the other hand, Casablanca is a commercial city, so get out! Go and see the many other wonderful places in Morocco. Casablanca should be at the bottom of your list.

Cleanliness is something they could improve.


The staff was very friendly, the food was good and the roof views (and seating) were wonderful. The front desk guy was super-friendly and transcended all language to make everyone feel welcome and special. Our one suggestion would be to get the roof of the neighboring building cleaned off. As you climb the stairs in the hotel, you are forced to look at PILES of garbage the whole way up. It really is a depressing sight.


A lovely little hotel for a short stay in Casablanca. Quiet and clean, with all the facilities you need. No complaints.


It is very central and the taxi can take you quite near to it so you don't get lost in the Medina. The room was a bit dirty and very humid. The hotel didn't have a hairdryer.

Breakfast was embarrassing, cold broken egg and dirty glasses. The bathroom was very dirty. The host was however very nice and generous.

We loved our stay here! Be sure to dine at Casa Fish next door, you will not regret it... the food was amazing.


Best thing about this overnight stay at Hotel Central was leaving. Directions to hotel were very unclear. Expensive for what you get. Room not completely clean. Not within minutes of the mosque unless you classify as a half hour walk as "within minutes". Wifi was non existent and when we ask the manager he blatantly ignored us. No computers to use even though it says they have a business centre with 6 computers. Would recommend people to pay a little extra for something worth it.


Absolutely wonderful! The facilities were perfect and clean, great central location right on the marina with easy access to the train for the airport! allowing us to book out later was a massive help and allowed us to call up and shorten our stay due to illness! I would definitely love to come back and stay longer, thank you very much!

The hotel had free breakfast and wifi, but it was quite temperamental. The shower was pretty much just a shower head you had to hold, and there was no curtain so the floor was saturated by the end of it. Our room had a balcony which overlooked the square it was on and the port which was nice. Hotel aside, I cannot speak highly enough of Jamal the owner. He took us to the fish market, helped us choose the freshest swordfish, grilled it and de-boned it for us. Best lunch ever sat with the locals!


We walked into this hotel that we booked off hostelworld expecting nothing special, as soon as we checked into the room we pulled up the sheets and instantly found a few dead bed bugs as well as live ones. We informed the hotel and he simply switched us rooms. We later saw the door open to the room and the bed had simply been remade. I'm sure he was just going to resell the room. Wifi was also not working, which really made planning our next move hard. Bed sheets in our new room were dirty.


the hotel i'd choose if i return to casablanca


This place was amazing, the hotel is simple but clean. The design of the hotel is very traditional and beautiful, Morrocon tiles, metal lamps, wood carved furniture. Simply charming. Location is great, it is 5 minutes from ricks cafe. Staff was very nice and helpful.

The room was very basic but did have a TV which hostels don't usually have, noise from the street during the night was pain. Costs more than Riads in other Moroccan cities and you get less, room very bland, breakfast poor, bathroom was also the shower...yes you read correctly, the whole bathroom is a shower so hide the toilet paper! Location, near city centre and Hassan II mosque however just off main streets and there were locals fighting out side in the street when we departed...


The toilet were defenitvly not cleaned and for the standard the priceless were compare too other hotels in Casablanca too expensiv


I thought this place was great. Staff were really friendly, and helpful. I was happy with breakfast. I liked the location in the medina, it seems to be a safe part of town. And the location is perfect because it's a pleasure to wander through the medina. It's two trains from the airport. then a 5 minute walk from Casa Port station.
