This hotel is for those seeking that colonial Morocco hotel feel. Everything from the antique phone switch board to the marble stairs hark back to a bygone era of "Maroc Par Avion" of the 1930z opulence that was.
This hotel has decent size rooms and a decent price - at about 45$ US per room it was fine - best of all it is smack in the heart of Rabat's French colonial Art Deco district.
The hotel has a sort of Paul Bowles vibe to it that I dug.
While it is old, the rooms are very clean, simple but clean and the *shower pressure* is excellent. My shower in New York City doesn't come close.
There is a mosque across the street, I actually found the early morning call to prayer a great way to wake up.
Everything apart from the furniture and the dinning room and perhaps lighting is original - it has a number of rooms with balconies. I recommend those - I saw one and it was great. I stayed in a corner room though so I got great sunlight all day. Room 208
Balcony rooms are 44,45 (single)
55,56 family suite
There is good wifi and the old city is close by. Great deal all in all
