Reviewed 3 December 2013

I live in Taroudant, but have had to come to Rabat a few times this year. I've just finished reading all of the reviews of Hotel Central, and think that most of them are more or less accurate, but I also think that giving this hotel a 1 out of 5 is extremely unfair. I had stayed at the Hotel...

I've stayed in this hotel since 1965, when rooms cost a dollar and it was run by a French woman. It now has Moroccan owners and is clean and well-kept, and indeed very central: about 3 minutes walk from the main train station, and around the corner from the main, palm-lined avenue. The high ceilings, tiled floors and big French...

The hotel has great location. It's located very close to the main road in Rabat, 5-minute-walk to the railway station and 10-minute-walk to medina and other tourist attractions like kasbah and seashore. The rooms are big and basic bathroom (it's divided from the room by a simple wall, but it's good enough). The rooms are not so clean, but it's...

For 150DH a night we got a large room with a shared shower. Decent bed with clean sheets. The place could do with a bit of a refirb, but great value with a very central location opposite the parliament building.

Very near the railway station, very good location Of course, it's a budget hotel, at 150 DH you cannot expect much However, the room was big and airy, the important thing is to get a room facing the street, big window with lots of light...a room facing the back looks much darker and gloomier! There was some simple furniture and...

The Hotel Central in Rabat is by Rabat standards fairly inexpensive (but not by Moroccan standards). The foyer is nice and appealing, the rooms are a bit shabby and not the cleanest - but for a couple of nights stay whilst waiting for the Mauritanian embassy to issue us visas it was OK. It as the name implies is pretty...

Ideal for travellers but not a place for a romantic break. As the name implies it is central (2 mins walk from the main Rabat Ville station) making it easy to find and a good base to explore the city from. For 150 Dihram the room I got with a double bed was large and spacious with a very high...

Rooms are not so clean, but big and luminous, but be careful not to take the ones without windows. Position is good, and rooms are colonial style but the main reason to go there is the cheap prices. The owner is nice.

I stayed at the Hotel Central earlier this year, and have been staying there, every time I visit Rabat, for over 20 years. The hotel has nice rooms, they are basic, but in no way are they shabby. Every room has floral tiled floors and high ceilings - rue relics of the French colonial era. The hotel has two large...

Full of history as an original colonial hotel and seems like it still has the original fittings and furnishings. Shower in room with a shared toilet is 200 Dh but compare that to travelling 6 km out of town for the campsite that doesn't have any working facilities at this time of year (Nov) for 60 each, it doesn't work...
