Definitely overpriced for the kind of service they give. While the room was ok, clean and comfortable, the restaurant was not much to desire for, with cigarette smoke and very poor breakfast. They should definitely either lower the price or increase the quality.

Because we were travelling by train, this hotel was an excellent choice because it is only 5 minutes away from the train station but that is the only reason you should stay here! Faded glory all over (if it had any glory in the beginning at all!). Luckily we only spent one night here. Although I do have to say...

This was our first stop in morocco and it wasn't great, the communal areas are very smoky and the hotel itself is looking rather tired. The room wasn't bad but not great either. As long as you're only after location and a clean room then you'll be ok.

The Balima hotel is a good location to stay in Rabat. I 've been there for the second time and if i will go to Rabat again, i will stay in the Balima hotel again. The hotel are placed in front of the parliament. It has nice rooms and a nice area outside in front of the hotel.

My daughter and I have just spent 2 nights in the Balima and we could not have wished for a nicer hotel. Our room was situated on 3rd floor opposite the parliament. It was clean and comfortable with excellent friendly staff. I would highly recommend it as a central place to stay in Rabat.

The hotel has a perfect location. The room was very clean, everybody was helpfull and friendly. I have been in a lot of hotels. Some 5 star some not. It makes travelling worth the trouble to have different experiences. There were clean, white towels, a piece of soap, hot water, and a good bed. What reason would I have to...

Being in such a central location - 5 minutes walk from Rabat Ville station, right on one of the main avenues of the city - definitely gives this hotel an advantage.Unfortunately, I did not find other reasons that could make me return. Maybe they put me in one of the lesser rooms, but my room was small, dated (including tv...

While the location was very good - the negative experiences with this hotel are enough to prompt me to be firm in my 'poor' review of this establishment. I traveled with a group of coworkers here - the booking being made by an experienced travel agency with strong ties in the area - so I was really expecting a nice...

“The rooms at the far end of the hallways on each floor are bigger (double beds) and have a bathtub; for the same price, it's much more comfortable. For ex. room 166.”
