accommodation overview for Morocco

We’ve kept track of the places we’ve stayed in Morocco and whether or not we recommend them. We travelled through Morocco in September / October 2011.  If you like the information and want to book, we have a affiliation with HostelWorld for some of them.
City Accom Cost dbl room (MAD) Hotel Description In a nutshell
Marrakesh Riad Madina Mayurqa (breakfast included) 200
Location is in the middle of the medina down a dark alley which is a bit dubious after 9pm when everything shuts. Apart from that, it's nice and central with friendly hosts, although the beds are a little hard and there is a simple shared bathroom.
Casablanca Hotel Colbert (no breakfast option) 130
Cheap and nasty hotel.  Rooms are large, but dirty.  Sheets on the bed were hairy and we suspect unchanged, bathroom was terrible and smelled worse! Only stay here if your budget doesn't allow more....
Do not recommend
Rabat Hotel Splendide (breakfast costs extra) 230
Good location, clean large rooms with bathrooms.  Great value for money (but beware the quoted price doesn't include the tax).
Meknès Hotel Majestic (breakfast costs extra) 216
Located near the train station, easy walking distance with backpacks.  However, it is a decent 30 minute walk to the Medina.  Clean rooms and en-suite, friendly staff and cheap restaurants nearby,
Fes Hotel Kairouan (no breakfast option) 140
Location is OK in the Ville Nouvelle, and the rooms are spacious but very old furniture and blankets.  There is a lot of night time noise from the outdoor club across the street and the bathrooms are not very clean.
Do not recommend
Fes Hotel Central (no breakfast option) 200
Location is OK in the Ville Nouvelle, rooms are clean and spacious with a sink.  The showers are outside in the courtyard and not much hot water. 
Merzouga Auberge les Pyramids (breakfast included) 120
Fantastic hotel, especially for the price.  Rooms were spacious and clean with a large en-suite and air-conditioning.  Location is on the edge of town, but the view of the Sahara desert is unbeatable.  The food served here for lunch / dinner is also superb.
Highly recommend
Tinghir Retour au Calme (breakfast costs extra) 180
This hotel lives up to it's name, it's on the edge of town near the oasis. The rooms were very quiet and clean and spacious with an en-suite.  WIFI is free and a good connection. 
Ouarzazate Hotel Marmar 200
Great new hotel located 10 minutes outside of the main part of town.  The owner Iddir is very friendly and helpful.  The rooms are large and clean with an en-suite and WIFI is free.
Highly recommend
Marrakesh Hotel Cecil 2 (breakfast included) 220
Great location on the edge of the Medina.  New rooms are clean and the shared bathrooms are good.  Breakfast on the terrace is great with views over the Medina as it wakes up...
