We had a breakfast destination in mind when we left the hotel, but a random restaurant along the main street caught our attention and we opted to give it a go. It was pretty similar to every other breakfast we have had so far. While we're still loving the change from India, but I can see, on the horizon, that we will …
I don't think there’s really much to say here, other than I hate the fact that Moroccans think EVERYTHING is negotiable. For instance, I walk out of the train station and get a cab, I ask him if he has a meter, and he says yes, let’s go. I get in and there is no meter. After being taken for 30 Dirham, I get to the hotel, and he tries to …
Forgot to mention on the previous update, there was a slight delay to accomodate all the latecoming people onto the plane, but a much longer hour delay since now the plane needed to be deiced. Chad was apoplectic at this, but I was more sanguine since I knew that as we were all on the plane we should be able to depart eventually, and the later it …
We arrived on the North Atlantic coast of Morocco via train rapide from Meknes. The ride was smooth, sparing Choyce any motion sickness issues, and mostly pleasant. The landscapes were all lush and the poverty of the shantytowns on the outskirts of Casablanca was expansive. We stayed at a hotel recommended by our taxi driver, Maamoura Hotel. Casa …
... br> Emerging from our retail therapy it was like another day. The sun was shining and it was ridiculously warm. The walk along the waterfront toward the Mosque of Hassan II provided us with varying perspectives of Casablanca, from the palace to elaborate seaside villas, past rows and rows of slums, keen fishermen lining the foreshore, stalls offering fresh orange juice, barbeque corn and nuts along with the occasional mobile tea/coffee seller ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Maamoura Hotel Casablanca
We booked directly with the hotel manager for a room and airport transit at a very fair cost. Our e-mail was our agreement, nothing more was required. Even though our flight was delayed, we were met on time and taken directly to the hotel in comfort. Staff was professional, courteous and happy to help. They made reservations at a local restaurant and negotiated a fair rate with a taxi for us, along with pointing us in the right directions for walk-abouts. Both room and bathroom were spacious, clean and pleasantly appointed - we knew we were in Maroc, a very special place. No mini-bar or hair dryer in our room, but those amenities aren't deal-breakers for us, anyway. Room A.C. kept us comfy - if the A.C. remote control is not in the room, ask at the desk. Large TV, good cable reception & stations. We were tickled by the energy saving lights in the common areas . . . look for switches before you get out in the dark :-) but it saves energy and probably helps keeps the room cost low. A light breakfast was available, and wonderful mint tea was offered more than once. Their restaurant was to be opened in November, 2007, and seemed to be all ready when it was shown to us. The owner was there both days overseeing operations along with the very helpful manager. If you don't need a lot of frills or require a lot of attention, you will enjoy your stay and save hundreds. Located near the old market and off major thoroughfares, so convenient and quieter. We would use this hotel again, and hope to say the same again :-)
Entering Hotel Maamoura you are greeted with warm smiles and a welcoming "Bonjour" by the friendly desk clerks and manager. This courteous staff did their best to make my 4 days pleasant.
Excellent value for the price. We stayed here on our first and last days in Morocco. We had two very different rooms: the first one was very spacious (with balcony) but not quite fully done; the second room was smaller but much more modern. We were pleased with both. The staff was friendly and helpful and the location is great. It is also very quiet.
Not really a good choice
Stayed in this hotel august 2007. Before we go any further, do not go to this hotel
The staff were friendly enough, the reception staff a bit sullen and felt even asking them a question was a great effort for them to reply.
rooms weren't clean enough , air conditionair not working...
Overall, we probably would not go back to the Hotel maamora and we dont recomand anyone to go there
Loved the Maamoura
We stayed here for only one night before joining a Bus Tour of Morocco, but if we ever return to Casablanca.......this is where we will book.
The rooms were clean..........the breakfast buffet was good......but, the Hotel Staff were # 1. They went well beyond the necessary to help us find the "where", & "how", of things we wanted to do on our pre-tour day. Honestly, we cannot thank them enough............a Family run Hotel that deserves to do well. HIghly recommended !!!! Deserves a 5* rating.
We found this Hotel on Trip Advisor.
Best value by far in downtown Casablanca
The Boudad family have done a great service to Casablanca and its visitors by opening this top-quality hotel in downtown Casablanca and providing extraordinary service. They have renovated a building from the colonial period with the highest quality furnishings and matched the atmosphere with their "go the second mile" service. Spacious rooms are equipped with satellite TV and individual climate control units. Mobarak, the general manager, can and will arrange anything needed for a group, including taxis to and from the train station, making it competitive with the much less impressive Ibis. Shuttle service to the airport is an added bonus. And breakfast is great.
I live in Morocco and will rely on the Hotel Maamoura from now on when hosting visitors in Casablanca.
Absolutely amazing hotel will definitely stay again
Very Clean hotel, moroccan styl big and clean rooms and toilets Towels, A/C comfortable beds, Excelent customer service and the personell will do anything to please you,Great Breakfast.

Ein ganz fantastisches Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis
Sauberes Hotel im marokkanischen Stil mit Designelementen im gleichen Stil, geräumige und saubere Zimmer und Badezimmer und die Angestellten geben sich wirklich die allergrößte Mühe mit den Gästen. Ich hatte nicht genug Zeit um das, nach Angabe des Hotels, "umfangreiche Frühstück" zu probieren aber es ist vermutlich ziemlich gut. In einigen Zimmern und der Lobby gibt es WiFi, ganz kostenlos. Die Straße vor dem Hotel sieht morgens nach dem Markt etwas ruppig aus aber das wird schnell weggeräumt. Man kann vor dem Hotel parken.
Absolutely amazing value for money
Clean hotel, actually moroccan styling with all design elements on the same theme, spacious and clean rooms and toilets, and the personell really go to any ends up to help you. Had no time to try their, according to their own saying, lavish breakfast but probably it is pretty good. WiFi in some of the rooms and in the lobby, no charge. The market street outside looks a bit like a backyard in the mornings, but it is cleaned up quickly. parking in front of the hotel
