We (four persons) stayed for one night at the beginning of October in this charming hotel with some crazy but very friendly staff. We got a four bed room, which was not one of the best, but totally ok. Three beds in one room without a window next to a room with a window and a larger (maybe queen size) bed.
We decided to come back a second time and had a nice room to the street with a balcony and a bigger bathroom.
The breakfast is rather simple, you get coffe, orange juice and baguette or bread and butter/marmelade.

Do not expect too much from this hotel. It is standard for Moroccan hotels, but has a great atmosphere.

Room Tip: Choose a room to the street. These are the best and have a small balcony.

The hotel is in a central location which is great (in the old city), the crew is friendly and generous, the rooms are ok - well designed.. the bathroom wasn't so comfortable and it felt not sooo shiny, but it's nothing serious. The building itself is beautiful.

Good location ( but don't go in the medin after 10pm) this hotel is very charming and perfect if you prefer atmosphere over confort. Is clean enough and the staff is ok. Plus, is very cheap (400 dh for double room).

The most important issue of the hotel is the position: at the beginning of the medina, on the side that goes to the port. You can walk without a destination, watching moroccan true life. From the front rooms you can see the port and the sea.
Rooms are clean, if you watch to moroccan standard.

There are two sides to Casa: 1. the decrepit/dilapidated old medina area of town and the more plush 'westernized' nouveau area along the coast leading up to the Moroccan Mall and beyond. Central hotel is in the heart of the old Medina. We took a taxi from the train station in what seemed like a video game of bumper cars (which was daring and exhilarating at the same time - I digress)! The hotel is nothing to write home about; just okay for a night considering the price. It's a transient spot. We flew into Casa then headed to Marrakech the next morning and on our return, same deal - stayed here 1 night then flew out next morning. The receptionist was wacky, to say the least. A bit too 'touchy- feely' and drunk for my liking! I noticed he was extremely professional to heterosexual couples couples but 'frisky' toward single female travelers. His playful attitude quickly became a nuisance to me. However, don't want to take way from the fact that, for the most part, he was welcoming and accommodating (gave us welcoming tea upon arrival, carried our bags upstairs and gave us access to his computer room)...I get it, he was just a little socially unaware. I kindly made it clear that I was uncomfortable and he backed off.

The Hotel provides an ample breakfast and unlimited Moroccan whiskey (aka, tea)! Room wasn't anything special - again it's just a crash-pad for the night in a transient city unless you plan to stay on the more affluent part of town which was BEAUTIFUL! The irony of this is the Country is re-building a train station and revamping the port/water front just across the street from the old medina! Will be interesting to see what impact that has on tourism seeing as the wold famous Casablanca Restaurant is just a stone's throw away (which by the way, you must experience if you're in Casa - simply marvelous!). Anyway, glad that to have experienced Casa for the Hassan Mosque, Casablanca Rest, new city, boardwalk scenery and the Habous (new medina) where the artisan shops are located. It was a great experience that however I would definitely NOT stay at Hotel Central again even if there was no where else to stay!!

Room Tip: There are a ton of other hotels around for about $25 extra but we had already pre-paid online and di...

the hotel is run by two brothers who are friendly, helpful and hilarious! we had a large room with a nice little balcony, definitely no bedbugs. the bathroom wasn't great but it was fine for us. free mint tea was always on offer at any time of day. the owners even let us stay an extra night for free in a smaller room. we would definitely go back here!
