This place is really more like a hostel, and there isn't much "traditional" Moroccan about it. It's clean and pleasant enough if you are on a tight budget, but it didn't have much to offer.

It felt a bit institutional and not particularly warm or inviting. The staff was smiling and laughing, but in an insincere way - like asking you how you are, but then busying themselves with something else and ignoring your answer. Their language skills in English and Spanish were extremely limited, and they couldn't provide much info on the area.

It was FREEZING at night in January, and there was no heat whatsoever in the room. The night was extremely cold, and I would never stay here again in winter. To make matters worse, the hot water was also out during most of our stay.

The breakfast was nicer than I expected, given the rest of our experience at this hotel. It included hard boiled eggs and yogurt, along with the normal bread, jam, butter, and spreadable cheese that most hotels in Morocco have.

The location was in the very grungy medina, which was a moderate walk from the Hassan II mosque, Ricks cafe (from the movie Casablanca), and a tram stop, but if you want a more pleasant experience, I'd stay in another part of town. The medinas are much more charming in Fes and Marrakech.

The taxi drivers at the train station are scammers; take the tram instead to the ancienne medina (ask the tram guard to tell you the station, I think it was nationes-unies) and use the gps on your phone to walk to the hotel from there. The hotel itself provided no directions.

We stayed at Hotel Central for two nights at the beginning of our trip to Morocco, and on the last night before leaving. The owner was amazing, and said to us upon our return: "The first time you are guests, the second time, you are family!" He treated us wonderfully, pointing out great places on the map, and was happy to have us back again. The breakfast at the hotel was nice, and because we had to leave so early for the airport, he awoke early to make sure that we got our breakfast before heading out.

His brother is also nice, but reserved, so don't let this be a turn off to you.

This hotel is ideal for backpackers and young people hoping to get a fun experience in Morocco, but who aren't too concerned with amenities. The rooms are clean, and having a television after a long day of traveling can be nice. There are shops nearby to get quick groceries. (You can get soap and shampoo if you ask for it downstairs.)

Located near the front of the medina, it easily allows travelers to find food and explore the medina and surrounding areas. Located about a 15 minute walk from the Hasan II Mosque and corniche along the ocean, we enjoyed walking around this area of Casablanca. It is about a 10 minute walk from the Casa Port train station, and a quick taxi ride to and from Casa Voyageur train station.

I would recommend this place to friends traveling together, as it is a good price and good location, and you will be treated nicely.

Room Tip: The third floor rooms are preferable, as your window will not face the window of a medina resident, and they are slightly quieter, though you will still hear the Call to Prayer in the morning no matter where you are in the medina.

This hotel was definitely a budget hotel. The rooms are small and the bathrooms are old, but things are clean and the price isn't bad. If you are going in the winter, though, you should know that there isn't any heat in the rooms - so it gets rather chilly!

My friends and I stayed here in February 2013 for three nights. If you are looking for a fancy hotel, this is not for you. But if you are looking for a more unique and traditional Moroccan experience for a good price, this is the place for you. It is located very central, in the heart of the life of the city and close to the medina. It is not always quiet, but you feel as if you are getting a more real experience of Moroccan life. The owner is friendly and so helpful. Anytime we needed information or anything at all, he arranged it for us. He gave us good tips and took care of us. The rooms are not fancy but have everything you need. A very good price if that is important to you. We had a great stay there.

I stayed in this hotel for two days, first day and last day in Morocco. The room was equiped with basic facility. There is television, but AC is not available in the room. They provide towels, shampoo and soap.,WIFI was just available in public space. It's located in Medina, very closed from the main road, and only 15-20 minutes walking to Hasan II Mosque. The breakfast is average. The receptionists were very friendly and kind. I could make a booking through email. It's suitable place if you want to stay at budget hotel (this is the cheapest one that I could get in Casablanca) and don't plan to stay long. From Casa voyage, I took petite taxi and cost me 20 Dirham for one way.
