Hotel Ambassy – Kenitra, Morocco

Another hotel review.

A slightly expensive hotel in Kenitra – it was €60 for one night for this room… Apologies for taking a picture of a used bed and bathroom. We were all tired, and I only had time in the morning to take pictures.DSC_3363

My kitchen facilities were better than the Travels’ family room. Nothing was broken.DSC_3365

Breakfast takes a longer time to prepare…DSC_3366

The only problems I had was the WiFi – didn’t have any in the room!

Also, right before sunrise, you will hear the call out for people to go and pray at the mosque or in their homes  (I think)… It’s sung in minor key. So make sure you sleep early!!

Hotel Tuxeda – Rabat, Morocco

In Rabat, I stayed in Hotel Tuxeda. It’s near the sea, but a little further away from the city centre.

It isn’t far from the medina, where the people are really nice. The hotel staff are really nice… even when I had trouble opening the door, the receptionist came to open the door for me!DSC_3310.JPG

Facilities aren’t too bad. Thought the shower was a bit too close to the toilet, but at least there was hot water in this hotel!DSC_3298

The room was a bit stuffy because I couldn’t find the remote for the aircon… it may have been with the receptionist. Hmmmm. WiFi was ok. Breakfast was boring.

A nice place for a cheap price.

Morocco – Day 2: Rabat to Kenitra

Currently jobless. Currently not feeling sorry for myself. 😆 Maybe it’s because I actually have loads to catch up on, like crochet, studying Japanese and doing housework which I’ve been avoiding.

Sunday 28th July 2019

I woke up on time for breakfast, but I was actually lounging around the hotel room feeling lazy to move.

The breakfast lounge of the hotel I was staying was on the top floor (fifth floor) which was the floor above me. You can actually here the scraping of chairs on the floor from my room.

I would say that the selection for breakfast was quite minimal. Even the coffee cups are small… This was when I started reminiscing my breakfasts in Japan, how grand they were, and the selection in Japan was much more satisfying… No wonder the breakfast lounge looked a bit diminished.DSC_3306DSC_3308DSC_3309

It was time to check out, and to explore Rabat before moving onto my next destination.

Thought it was quite interesting to see street names of worldwide cities in Rabat. It might be where foreigners used to stay when they came to Rabat.

 

Next I moved towards the station but ended up in the market which is inside the medina!

This is where I bought a cheap Nokia phone for 200 Dh. Not bad!! DSC_3352.JPG

After about an hour or so in the market, I needed to get to the station.

 

After a long walk and a bit of a search for the station – had to ask some guards for directions in French/English. (Maybe I need to start learning and speaking French again).

Bought my ticket to Kenitra Station and prepared to wait for the train.

I arrived in Kenitra quite quickly! So I had my lunch and a Starbucks… I actually sat in the station for about 6 hours in total waiting for the Travels family to arrive.

After the six hour ordeal of waiting – thankfully there’s free WiFi to use, I received permission from Mrs Travels that I can go out and walk around plus look for food! I ended up walking along a long street… The thing I realise is that there are mostly men sitting out in the cafés and rarely a muslim woman would sit outside and join them.

I ended up in a Japanese restaurant for dinner… Erm… I needed something that I was familiar with. I think the owner thought I was Japanese because I started talking in basic Japanese… 😅 Nevermind. A little boy was sitting inside, and he said the food is super great! ^_^DSC_3359

The food was fairly basic. They didn’t have some of the things that I wanted, but that’s ok. It took a while to prepare the food, but you know what the chicken karaage was worth the wait! The bitesize karrage was very tasty – probably tastier than the ones I’ve tasted in London and Japan!!DSC_3361DSC_3360

I think it came to less than 200 Dh and the owner was trying to sell me some miso soup to make 200 Dh… Moroccans really try to make a deal out of everything!!

Address: Tokyo Sushi, Kenitra, Morocco

Finally got info from Mrs Travels; they were looking for a hotel for all of us to stay in as the Airbnb owners abandoned ship, and it was hard to find a place in short notice. I walked to the place that we were going to stay in… And finally met them!! 😊😄

 They haven’t had any dinner, so we went out to find food… and a smoothie… Think I was a bit constipated, as I was passing out wind in public. LOL!! I think Missy A missed me. Heheheh. The Travels family said she changed when I appeared. DSC_3362.JPG

After this long day of waiting around, we all went back to the hotel… I seemed to have a better room than the family room, LOL – so they say. But it was expensive for €60 a night!

The girls, Missy I, Missy S and Missy A all used my bathroom – I’m not sure what Mr Travels was thinking. Why my room???  😫

Well…

End of Day 2.
