On the whole, I didn't have a huge problem with this hotel, which is situated perfectly to see all the major sights of Rabat -- the medina, Hassan Tower, Kasbah, the beach. It was a great mid-range budget choice, if you are not looking for a hostel or a ritzy hotel experience. The showers worked fine, it was safe, clean and secure, which was important to me, as a female, solo traveler.
However my experience was tainted by a rule that said you were never allowed to bring anyone up to your room, even if it was just to your door. I was in town to visit a friend (male), and even in the daytime, he would get harassed for wanting to escort me to my room. I've stayed at plenty of places in Morocco, and I understand the culture (my friend is Muslim), but I have never been anywhere where, if you've paid for your room, you're not allowed to have people visit (NOT stay the night).
On our last night in Rabat, we decided we would pay for a double instead of a single, because we were traveling early together the next morning to our next destination. The daytime manager said it was OK, but when we arrived back at night, the night manager (who had had the most attitude toward us) feigned misunderstanding and said that my friend would have to pay for a separate room.
Also, the walls were very, very thin. I would wake up at the sound of furniture moving in the next room.
