TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Astrid Casablanca
A nice little hostel right in the heart of town. Decent rooms for a budget hotel and very clean. Staff friendly and helpful. Great breakfast available at supplement...good value.

... or an elevated train by now--the tramway has just served to make Casablanca's narrow streets even narrower. And the opening ceremony last December, with marching bands and folklore dances from all over the country was kind of over the top. But before I pass judgement, I suppose I should ride it, shouldn't I? So today, I'm going to "discover" Casablanca one more time.
