The Hotel Riad Salam is on a ledge overlooking the Atlantic Ocean at the base of Anfa Mountain, 3 kilometers from Casablanca. It has one of the first spas in Morocco., Le Lido. Unfortunately my husband's stop was just for lunch!
Directions: 3 kilometers outside the center of Casablanca.
This is a 5 star hotel, but we all wondered were they got the stars from. For the price of the rooms here (2300 dirham a night) you'd expect much more. The reception area looks fab, mosaics and water features and pristine looking staff. But the rooms have cracks in the ceilings, paint drips on the tiles in the bath room, and towels that have seen better days. And of course the mini bar is empty. We had a television, but no chance of lazing on the bed, watching it. You'll have to get up to change channels as they do not have enough remote controls for all the rooms! I must add that everything is very, very clean!
The restaurant does local food, but you can eat the same dishes for three times less in town.
If you stay here in winter be prepared for the cold. There is a small electric heater in every room, but the air gets so dry, you'll have to sleep with the windows open. The corridors, breakfast room, bar and restaurant are absolutely freezing.
Unique Quality: Breakfast at this hotel is delicious. There's a very big choice, catering to all tastes. There's a lady frying eggs any which way you want, and loads of sweet dishes. Breakfast is not included in the bill though, but this seems ro be common in Morroco.
The rooms on the ground floor all have a terrace overlooking the pool and garden, and there's a large terrace overlooking the ocean.
Directions: By the beach (Ain Diab)
This hotel was recommanded by a friend who used to visit Morocco a lot.It is also a five star hotel yet I`m not sure if it`s part of any international hotel chain.
Unique Quality: It had a very nice sea view and a large swimming pool.

Hi! I'm desperately looking for some recommendations for a nice riad in the Marrakesh medina. I have checked out all the websites and guide books and there are so very many riads, it's impossible to make a choice. There's also a huge price difference. A few years ago I stayed at a brilliant one - Riad Laora - but I'd like something a little cheaper this time, around 60-80 euros max with breakfast. Has anyone stayed at one like that (it's for early April, so that might be high season) they would recommend? One with lots of atmosphere as well and a rooftop terrace?
And could anyone recommend a hotel in Casa in the same price range? Someone recommended a hotel Guynemer. I checked out their website, but the photos don't look too great. Thanks a lot for any help!
i stayed at riad johenna recently and really liked it.
it's cheap and the manager is a very friendly morrrocoan woman who was extremely helpful to us during our stayt:
We stayed in Hotel Sherazade (which is also a real riad). It was our first visit to Morocco and it gave us a kind of 'thousand and one night feeling'.
Very helpful and friendly staff; located just two minutes from Jemaa el Fna (the central square).
whene you arrive at marackech you can a walk to the near riad to jmaa elfna it will take just 35 minuts and u ill fine your riad ...
i can recommend riad johenna nice and clean
The Jnane Mogador is a great riad 300 metres from Djemaa El Fnaa for around 30/35 euros. But get in quick as sometimes they are booked solid a couple of months in advance.
Address : 116 riad Zitoun Kedim
derb Sidi Bouloukat

We recently stayed at Ibis City Center in Casablanca (near Casa Port). It is brand new and the rate for a double (including tax) is about 670 dh (about 62 euros). It is brand new (so it is clean and eveything works well) and staff is good. It is close to the mosque - about 20 min walk or an easy cab ride. I decided on Ibis as I originally wanted to stay at Guynemer but they were already trying to sell me tours/ride to the airport via emails even before I got there - I was annoyed by that.
Thanks for all the helpful answers! I contacted all of the suggestions, and finally settled on the Sherazade. Not everyone had room and their price was right. As for Casablanca, I booked into the Maamouna, whose price was also great! Thanks again!
