Here’s my review of Hotel Azur Casablanca. I only stayed there for a night, my first stop on Morocco trip. When booking a room here, ask for an ocean view. I love the chilly sea breeze in the morning.
If you take the train from the airport, get off at the last station , Garre de Portes. Then take a taxi to Hotel Azur. Every driver knows the place but they charge you MAD100. Insist on turning on the taxi meter. If not, negotiate it to MAD25-30.
The hotel is on the corniche, facing the Pacific Ocean. There’s McDonalds across the street and a Burger King few steps from the door. There are a lot of bars, cafes, and boutiques surrounding it. If you’re a party animal, this location is perfect for you.
At night, the hotel is a hub of loud music, local partygoers and tourists.
There’s a security guard on duty 24/7
Considering the location and the room I was given, I’d say it’s ok. I got a good deal from www.booking.com. It was less than $70.
I stayed only for a night so I didn’t really enjoy whatever amenities they offer. I didn’t even have breakfast. The wifi on the 6th floor was not that good. In my room, I had to stand near the door to get a connection. The bed was comfy but the pillows were a bit hard. The AC was working well. There’s a clean 4-piece bathroom with towels.
I didn’t interact with them much but they seem pretty nice. My check-in was quick and lasted for less than 5 minutes.
The four-piece bathroom was sparkling clean. The towels were also clean. The bed was comfy but the pillows were hard.
