Le Pietri Urban Hotel
Ranked #3 of 45 Hotels in Rabat
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 August 2009

When we entered the reception area we were stunned by the high european standard of the hotel. The staff was very (very) friendly and helped us in any kind of situation. They were always available and spoke French and a quite well English, which is not common for Moroccan hotels. When we entered our rooms our expectations were exceeded again. They were very modern, stylish and clean and offered everything you would expect from a european hotel as well. Bed and bathroom were comfortable and the terrace was a highlight!
Since i've been there with Friends, we wanted to go out in the evenings. But we didn't come very far, because the best club around is the in-house jazzclub/bar/restaurant of the pietri itself, which seems to be kind of a hot spot for moroccans of every age too. we spent whole evenings there eating very well (they seem to have a european chef) and listening to very good live music. The hotel owner himself was very anxious and nice to us, eventhough we were a group of young people. He seems to be very choosy in picking the bands playing there. Since we enjoyed the ambience of the very modern jazz club so much, we stayed there until the music was over (around 12.30 pm). there was no noise problem at all.
During the day we did a lot of sightseeing and shopping since the hotel is located right in the center of the city of rabat. The central train station is just around the corner, so we could easily carry on with our trip.
You won't find any better hotel in rabat. Not with 3 stars, not with this location, ambience, service, entertainment, quality and price. I'll come back one day.

The Lonely Planet describes Le Pietri Hotel as "boutique". It's not. We stopped off there on the way to Marrakech from Fes. We were please we did since Rabat is less busy and hot than either place. It's about a 10 minute walk from the station so was ideal from our point of view. The rooms need a bit of attention. But it's fine, without really having any character. What really put me off was the bar downstairs. It was full of incredibly drunk locals who were incredibly aggressive. It had live music that went on to about 1am, so don't expect an early night. Still, I guess you get what you pay for - £50 per night for a double room.

Thank you for your review. In summer 2010, all rooms have been equiped with soundproofed windows. The Bistrot also has undergone improvements in order to avoid sound to go up to the rooms. Jazz and world music concerts are on three times a week (Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays), most of the groups are local, once a month a band from abroad is invited to meet local musicians.

Stayed there for 2 days, attending the Jazz au Chellah festival. Clean and comfortable with a top quality restaurant too. Well located in the centre, it was just 10 minutes walk to the Medina.

We stayed here twice on a recent trip to Morocco, on arrival and then again before departure. All of the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. We had to change reservations, dates and number of rooms, several times and the front desk was exceptionally accommodating and helpful in working with us. The only problem was availability as they do book up quickly. Additionally, we left a bag during our excursions around the country to pick it up on our return without a problem. The location was good, we easily walked to/from the train station pulling our bags, it was only three or four blocks. The breakfast was good and we had the best coffee during our visit here in this hotel. All of the workers there couldn't have been more friendly going out of their way to answer questions or get us anything we needed. The only complaint at all is the noise from the night club. Our daughter had a room just above it and it was really noisy until 2am. We had one of the terrace rooms and we could vaguely here the noise but it wasn't a problem. It is a big city and there is noise from the city but I didn't find that a problem. We did enjoy the extra space, open feel of the terrace rooms.
As a note, with traveling in a less developed country the standards aren't the same as you would expect in Europe or the US. On arrival I have to say I wasn't totally impressed with this place, However, after traveling around Morocco and getting a good idea of the overall standard at many hotels - when we came back to Rabat and the LePietri, we were totally satisfied and impressed. For the price I don't think you can do any better in Rabat and it was a very comfortable stay.

Thank you for your friendly review. We just wanted to let you know, that in summer 2010 all windows in the rooms have been changed to soundproofed glass. The restaurant and reception area have also undergone major improvements to avoid sound from the Bistrot going up to the rooms. We still have live music Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays - but only jazz and world music. Hope to welcome you back soon.

We stayed in this hotel for one night, on our way to Fes.

About the hotel: I read the comments about the noise and, being a light sleeper, I decided to go for the room with a Terrace, all the way up. The reservation was fairly efficient. The only glitch I remember is that their price was about 100DH ($12-15$) higher than what is on their website. I inquired about the difference and was sort of told that that was the price, without further explanation. It did throw a bit of a cold as a fist contact but that was the only glitch.

The room and hotel were very nice. Quite modern. A bit of a boutique hotel style feel, but not quite there. The restaurant is nice too. Didn't have dinner there but breakfast presentation has a bit of a different touch. A bit on the light side but nicely presented.

There were only two rooms with terraces, and I was glad I paid the extra. It was early May but still warm enough to tan if we wanted too. Not 100% private as you can see some apartments around. But it wasn't too much.

The only negatives I can think of:
- Size of bed: on a small size. Don't think it was a queen. I was with a friend so I slept on te sofa, which was OK comfort wise.
- Strange smell on the terrace, sewage-like. But I guess it's a passing thing

I would highly recommend this hotel and Rabat. I spent a day and saw the main sites (Challah, Mausoleum, Kasbah des oudaias, Royal Palace grounds). One could easily spend 2 days there. More interesting than Casablanca.

I also highly recommend restaurant La Bamba not far from the hotel (3 rue Tanta). It's recommended in the Frommer's

Transportation: No need to rent a car between Casa-Rabat-Fes. Train is a great (and very cheap) way to travel in this portion of the trip. It's another story from FEz t Marrakesh, through the desert, where the car is a must.

Plus : calm, central, welcoming staff, good food (thanks for a great range of soups – couldn’t believe it could be so cold in Morocco), free internet working great (which is not always the case in African countries)
Minus : had to pull out all my rusty french – receptionists only speak little english
