This is a warning regarding price quoted in the latest edition of Lonely Planet. We had intended on staying here, as we fancied something mid-range and comfortable. LP had this hotel down as 270dh for a double room and claimed that it had been renovated in 2004. In the event, we were shown a musty rather small room up about 3 steep flights of steps that all looked decidedly dated. It had it's own bathroom which was nice enough and did have a tv.
The actual price was 497dh, although at least that included breakfast - almost double what LP claimed and we felt that it was overpriced. We said no thanks and walked to the Hotel Splendide around the corner which was good enough for a price of 187dh.
We had a very pleasant stay at the Royal Hotel in Rabat; our room was clean, the hotel was central and the staff were very friendly and helpful... They were always interested to ask about the places we were visiting and gave advice! The hotel also has a restaurant which specialise in Moroccan cuisine...
Directions: 5 minutes away from the Mohammed V Avenue / 10 minutes away from the train station
Like most of our accommodations, the rooms were chilly (no heat in the winter) and they didn't have the rooms we reserved with the correct number of beds.
The rates included breakfast and the location wasn't bad. Some rooms have a view of the gardens.
A great night stay in the heart of Rabat - Morocco's best-kept secret. It's located across from the Royal Hotel so be warned - depending on the film - you may be entertained by the soundtrack to the film. It's also located near a mosque so if you are easily disturbed by an early call to prayer, you may wish to war earplugs! Rooms are lovely & ours had a great balcony (excellent for hanging out laundry).
Unique Quality: Beautiful garden views!
Directions: An easy walk to the Medinah & Kasbah des Oudaias
