        Great hotel but could be more better”

        The hotel is really near to the main attractions of Casablanca. It just a 5minutes walk to the Casa Port Train Station & the souq. The famous Casablanca square also just a walking distance. The host is really nice as he give information about how to get to one place. The only thing you could concerned is the signage and the exact location of the hotel. You have to go inside the medina then only you can see the hotel. Plus if there is an elevator,it will be much easier for traveller to lift their baggage

        Amazing location, great hotel!”

        Perfect location! Right in the heart of the medina, less than 5 min walk from a tram stop (tram is very cheap in Casablanca). We arrived late and checked out very early and the staff were very helpful and friendly. Our room was nice and tidy, getting cleaned regularly and we had a balcony overlooking the little square in front. The Wi-Fi covers the entire hotel and it's very fast. The breakfast is great and cheap. We particularly loved the rooftop terrace which provides 360 degree views of the entire city. We'd definitely stay again!

        Clean sheets for a deep sleep and strong coffee in the morning. I'll be back! ”

        Obviously, the are fewer modern conveniences in a building that's centuries old - for example the was no lift and the shower and wc had been crammed into a corner of my little room - but that's the whole point of staying in the historic centre of Casablanca! The location is right in front of the working port and it only takes 5 or 6 minutes from Casa-Port station if you walk along the busy main road - but it could take you half-an-hour if you decide to take a short cut through the maze of medieval streets and alleys in this historic location! I was only on an 15-hour stop-over. I could have played it safe and stayed (for free) at the airport hotel, but I'm really glad I decided to stay the Hotel Central. I left refreshed and delighted.

        Close to Everything”

        Facing the marina at the gates of the Medina, Hotel Central is close to the downtown area as well as a 15 minute walk to the Hassan II Mosque. It is an overall good value as most accommodations are overpriced in Casablanca. If coming from the Marrakesh, you will need to take a taxi here (don't pay more then 20 dihram, they will ask as high as 70!). The taxi will drop you at the bottom of the Medina and Hotel Central is directly in front of you up the drive. It is blue and white and can't miss it. Be sure to bring earplugs as the square in front is a bit noisy and the traffic off the main street can be loud. The room is simple but nice with plenty of hot water, a window that opens to a small balcony, and is clean. Breakfast is good too and included in the room cost-- yogurt, coffee/tea, fresh squeezed OJ, croissant, fresh bread with butter and jelly with a bit of cheese. It is served from 7:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. The building is classic with high ceilings, colorful floors, and a feeling of days gone by. Wifi is spotty at best and a bit slow.

        The hotel is in really good location, walkable distance to hassan ii mosque, CTM station and train station, which is very good when there is usually traffic jam in Casablanca. The hotel only has stairs, so it was really hard for us to carry three big suitcases. However, the staffs were so nice, not only to offer a help for us, but also helped us to arrange the room on first floor. We really appreciated. The only bad thing was the mosquitos flying in the room, but it was acceptable to us.

        Living in a century old hotel is amazing, the positives and negatives of this hotel are: 1. Close to the train station (Gare de Casa Port), it only takes 5-10 mins walk. 2. Close to Medina (Old Town) or you can say it is located inside the Medina, however the enviroment is a little bit messy as the Moroccans do litter and spitter. 3. The staffs are really helpful and friendly. 4. The beds are comfy and with a heater in it. 5. Breakfast not included, if you want to dine there it costs 30DH (=3 euro) per person. 6. They do not provide bottle water so you have to get one for yourself.

        No nonsense lodgings. Rooms aren't big or fancy, but for the price you get all you need. I was in two rooms, and in each of them, one of the two bed-lights had no bulb. Small ceiling bulb can keep the rooms a bit dim, but otherwise just fine. Cleaning staff were all very sweet. Hotel is right there in old-town Medina.

        Good value hotel ”

        Good value for money, we booked it as Hotel Central , but it’s also advertised as a Youth Hostel...(it has better facilities than a youth hostel though with en-suite rooms)...... however being in the medina a bit noisy in a night for sleeping overlooking the main square with constant motorbikes at all hours... We found the pillows very hard for sleeping on. Room could have been a bit cleaner, especially bathroom but I’ve seen worse. Plenty of hot water for showering. Room doors are hard to open/close but once mastered it becomes easier. Breakfast was good with bread,pastries & poached egg served to you on a tray. The staff were very friendly & helpful (spoke very good English) . We’d stay again but request a room at the back of the building.

        Best Budget Option Casablanca ”

        From my research best budget option in Casablanca. Great location being on the edge of the old Médina (port side), 15-20min walk along the marine promenade to the Grand Mosque and 5-10min walk to Casa Port train station where you can connect by 35min train to the airport (just being aware that due to present ongoing road works will need to walk via some unpaved road sections and many regional trains actually stop at the other train station Casa Voyageurs which is about 4km away). Bathrooms could probably do with a deep clean, however otherwise decent rooms with all facilities as shown on the website (roof terrace with view, good breakfast option and nice restaurant next door all positives). They also “upgraded” me to a room with a balcony which was very appreciated!

        This hotel was a welcoming start to my two weeks in Morocco. The wifi was finicky with my phone, only person with a problem however, and the staff walked me a block into the medina to find a PC-cafe. The following morning he showed me where i can get sunscreen. The locals knew exactly where this place was when i was fresh off the plane too. Really comfy beds and the view from the roof was wonderful! breakfast was also a nice introduction to the rest of my travels.
