The sprawling city of Casablanca is Morocco’s cultural, commercial and financial center, a very Westernized city. Notice the casual dress and large numbers of men and women socializing in restaurants, bars and on the beach. With grand architecture, long stretches of coastline and large parks, you’ll find many places to explore.
Glimpse old Casablanca by wandering the alleys of the Old Medina. Shop in the sprawling souk to see stalls laden with vegetables, leather goods, traditional handicrafts, silks and spices. Enjoy varied street foods including coconut cookies, shrimp rolls and freshly squeezed orange juice. In a former home on the edge of this old part of the city is Rick’s Café, a re-creation of the saloon featured in the Oscar-winning eponymous movie. You must remember this: The movie was actually made in a Hollywood studio and not in Casablanca.
On a headland overlooking the Atlantic Ocean is the Grand Mosque Hassan II, one of the world’s largest mosques. Take a guided tour of the 22-acre (9-hectare) complex to see the vast prayer hall, fountains and elaborate architecture. Non-Muslims are allowed to enter.
Alongside the mosque is the long strip of public beaches and private beach clubs making up the Corniche. At night the area’s clubs and discos draw a large, youthful crowd. Just offshore is a rocky outcrop containing the Shrine of Sidi Abderrahman which can be accessed via a bridge. Non-Muslims are not permitted to enter the monument, but can explore the old neighborhood built up around it.
One of Casablanca’s prettiest spots is the Arab League Park, a vast open space with manicured lawns and palm tree-lined boulevards. Come here to promenade and relax in cafés.
Fly into Casablanca's Mohammed V airport and get around by train, bus, taxi or rental car. Casablanca is about 150 miles (241 kilometers) from Marrakesh and about 180 miles (290 kilometers) from Fez. Close to the city are numerous traditional villages also worth visiting.
Five minute walk to the mosque. They accommodated our late arrival (after midnight) without a problem. Friendly and helpful staff. Perfect one night stay for a long layover flight and still getting in some sightseeing.
No wine and small pool that doesn’t have view of ocean
Staff were very helpful at giving us places to visit.. was missing a hair dryer in our room, but others had one.. a good stay in all for the value
The hotel was brand new when I stayed there so it was perfectly clean and maintained. The cost of the room was okay, but the food at the hotel restaurant was absolutely out of price. There was no menu so you didn't know exactly how much it would cost or what was included with the meals. I ordered ...
True 5-star comforts. Great room service and hotel car service for day trips or to the airport.
It was well located with polite and friendly staff. Restaurants were not that good.
Staff was friendly and accommodating. Room was clean and orderly. However, we needed more towels due to the number of people we had. During this stay I wanted to have waxing done in the Spa but it wasn't available. I believe if you offer SPA services all services should be available everyday until ...
Best thing about this place is the staff (especially the front desk, especially Ahmad, Amal, Wafaa they are the best) also the location, being so close to a train station. I’m a bit annoyed with the management though. They are not up to task.
