Hi :) Almost next to the Hotel CTM (marked on Lonely Planet Map) is the Hotel des Amis. I can recommend that place. 1. cheap (double room 100 Dh, single 80 Dh - 10 and 8 euros) 2. basic but clean 3. perfect location - almost at the Djema el Fna Square.
Marrakech and Agadir are the most expensive places, in Casablanca for a single room you'll pay 50 Dh (5 euros - look for the Hotel des Amis at the Medina), sleeping on the roof of a gorgeous hotel Le Petit Prince in Merzouga - 35 dh (3,5) only
safe travels

You're spoilt for choice really. I first stayed at a 'budget' backpackers hostel - reputed the cheapest in Marrakesh. I then moved to the Al Azahara (about 10) euros. Nice quiet riad with a very nice roof space about 2 minutes walk from the square.

Cheap bus from the airport drops you right in the middle of things. Directions can be confusing if the place you need isn't actually on the square itself, but you can always pay someone to show you.

It wasn't 'Al Azahara', it was Riad Medina Azahara - sorry. Anyway, here's an example of what's there.

There are so many cheap hotels in Marrakech. It's got to be one of the easiest cities in the whole of Africa (along with Jo'burg, Harare and Lusaka) to find a budget room. I have stayed in utter luxury there for under €100 a night and had en equally comfy bed and half OK brekky for less than €20.

Try Pension Sindi Sud...it's in that same area where a lot of the budget places are concentrated, and a stone's throw from the Jnane Mogador. The hostal is a popular place for Peace Corps volunteers.
