Where to Stay in Casablanca?
While finding a decent hotel in Casablanca can prove expensive, it is still possible to find cheap hotel deals and good-value hotels in parts of the city.
The Place Mohammed V area is popular with foreign visitors due to its location in the heart of Casablanca. It is considered a good base from which to explore some of city’s main sights, with a nice choice of shops and restaurants nearby. There is a decent choice of 4- and 5-star hotels in the area.
If you are looking for cheap hotel deals, there is a high concentration of budget accommodation close to the CTM bus station. This area is the backpacker's choice, and is within walking distance of Casablanca’s restaurant strip.
Casablanca Accommodation Options
Room availability in Casablanca over the peak season of July to September can be tight. If you want to be sure of securing a room at the city's best hotels, it is advisable to book well in advance. However, there are usually some good last-minute hotel deals to be found if you are flexible.
If you are on a tight budget, there are plenty of no-frills guesthouses to choose from, especially along the Allal ben Abdellah street. Hotel Touring is popular with backpackers looking for a cheap bed for the night, and is just a 5-minute walk from the CTM bus station.
If you have a little more cash to spend, the city also offers plenty of mid-range hotels, with chains including Barcelo, Novotel and Ibis offering clean and comfortable accommodation.
If money is no object, Casablanca offers a world-class selection of deluxe places to stay, from international 5-star hotels to palatial accommodation including the legendary Oum Palace Hotel.
Casablanca Hotel Recommendations?
For a cheap and cheerful stay in Casablanca, a good budget option is the Hôtel du Centre. This hotel is basic but clean and inexpensive, with 32 rooms and a good location in the old Medina. The 3-star Maamoura Hotel near Central Market also offers well-reviewed rooms at a very reasonable price.
A good mid-range hotel is the Hotel Yto in the Quartier Gauthier or the friendly family-run Hotel Guynemer with free Internet and Wi-Fi, plus a good restaurant with nightly live music.
Exuberantly Moroccan in style, Le Royal Mansour Méridien is one of Casablanca's grandest hotels. The 182 lavishly presented rooms and suites have all the mod cons, but expect to pay a premium.
Transport in Casablanca
The main hub for international services into Morocco, Aéroport Casablanca Mohammed V is located 30km (19 miles) south of the city centre. There is a reliable hourly train service operating into town from 7am-11pm daily. Change at Aïn Sebaa for connections to the four main railway stations.
A shuttle bus also operates between the airport and the town centre, with 12 buses a day. Cheaper than a standard taxi is a seat in a grands taxi, which takes up to six passengers on a pre-planned route. Regular taxis are also available.
Head to Casablanca-Anfa Airport, located about 6km southwest of Casablanca, for internal flights to Marrakech, Agadir, Essaouira, Ouarzazate, Fez and Oujda.
