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.


Nice hotel, great location in the old medina and close to the Hassan II Mosque. Nice roof-terrace with a view of the harbour. It was quite expensive compared to the other hotels/hostels I stayed in during my time in Morocco.


Wi fi doesn't work. The room are small and no so clean. Dust everywhere. To much expensive


Nice hotel on a square with some nice eating points. Good location. And the best of all is the big roof terrace with the magnificant few.


Generally the hotel and staff are fine. But when we arrived at 3 a.m in the morning we were told, all rooms were sold out even though we had an email confirmation from the hotel that the 2 rooms we booked would be kept for us. We were guided to a nearby hostel where we had to stay in a filthy 3 bed room with used bedsheets. When we returned to the hotel for breakfast and check in for the second night, the hotel staff realized that we were "the Germans" for whom they had kept 2 rooms....


It is in the medina so it is much more safe than in the town!


Wonderful place! Friendly staff and cozy escape from the busy city. Definitely recommend to others!


My sister and I stayed in Hotel Central for a couple of days while visiting Casablanca and it was a great experience! My personal favorite part about our stay was the staff. They were incredibly kind and helpful and made us feel right at home in Morocco! We miss them very much.


Good location. A simple place which is really all you need. If you're in Casablanca for a few nights, you might want a fancier place though.


The staff are so relaxed and super nice; we really felt at home! They even let us keep our bags there after checkout since our flight didn't leave until late that evening. I never write reviews but we really thought they deserved one! It is a bit of a walk from some attractions, but taxis are cheap, or if you are capable of walking a few miles, it really isn't bad at all.
