Located just three kilometres from the city centre of Casablanca and thirty minutes from the Casablanca airport is Riad Salam, known as Hôtel Casablanca Le Lido Thalasso & SPA. There are 202 spacious rooms available, all with A/C and modern accessories – adding a little international comfort and style to traditional riad accommodation. The hotel offers a wide choice of restaurants with Marrocan, Spanish, Italian and International cuisine all represented. They also offer indoor and outdoor pool services, fitness centres and sauna. It has a little less character than some of the other options in the city, but a great place to find the comforts of home while traveling.

Established in 1922, this hotel has beautiful Art Deco furnishings reminiscent of an age gone by – it’s said that Edith Piaf even stayed here. Décor is nothing is not enthusiastic, and could be a little ‘OTT’ for some guests. However, it’s historically charming and comfortable, with friendly staff and good amenities. The hotel boasts a nightclub, restaurant, and cafe that are frequented by locals as well (avoid rooms on the first floor as they pick up the noise).
