Being the capital, Rabat is well-equipped with hotels of most standards. However, if you come here in conjunction with one of the religious festivals, or even worse, during the summer holidays, note that hotel rooms can fill up quickly. Call ahead in advance.
Rabat has a moderate price level for most hotels, except in the old city which has hiked up prices for the often miserable quality. With just a few exceptions, the best budget hotel rooms of Rabat are found in modern, downtown Rabat.
The camping ground, just across the river, is of good quality, and offer a good alternative to most of the cheap hotels in town.
Restaurants and alternatives
Rabat has one of the more international cuisines of Morocco, and Chinese or European food is far from uncommon. Prices are OK most over town, even if the same food should be had for less in most of Morocco.
Note that Rabat still closes a bit earlier at night than Casablanca.
Rabat has a couple of places where both Moroccans and foreigners come. These places come both in the shape of bars as well as discos. While there are plenty of the typical nightclub/bar/brothel places in Rabat, a handful of places are visited by young Moroccans of both sexes, and on equal terms.
Prices are more European than most other things you get across in Rabat.
Rabat has numerous banks and change bureaus, giving you every kind of possible service with changing money. A good handful of ATMs are found around town, too.
The railways are found in town centre and there are connections on two directions: Casablanca in the southwest, and Meknes in the northeast. If you have the chance, you should well consider using the train with its location, it is the most convenient way of arriving in Rabat.
Both bus and taxis have their stations a bit out of town, and getting a taxi to connect to the town centre will be vital. Despite its unfortunate location, buses and taxis prove their value by serving every possible destination.
The airport of Rabat is really the airport of Casablanca. The ride takes a good 1,5 hours, and is a bit expensive if you do it by taxi. Once again, the moment you're there, you can choose from the best air connections in the country. This airport has a good number of international destinations, and serve internal desitnations, especially Agadir, Marrakech and Oujda.
