Maison D'hôtes Jeloua
Run by the same people as the Auberge Menata, this is a lovely maison d'hôtes (B&B). It's charmingly decorated and the garden has its own restaurant. Deservedly popular.
Auberge La Gueïla
A fabulous, newly built, French-run place, with six charming rooms, excellent food (to be taken in the courtyard garden), a library and even a massage room for real unwinding.
Eco Lodge Du Maure Bleu
The Road to Senegal
A gorgeous off-grid tent-camp offering a surprising degree of comfort and home-cooked food, as well as arranging walking and pirogue (traditional canoe) tours in the national park.
Auberge Bab Sahara
Off Rte de Azougui, Bab Sahara has been a little slice of overlanders' heaven for over 15 years. There's a selection of tikits (stone huts; with air-con), caravans and tents, plus a campsite in another compound and a mechanic's workshop...
A centrally located and perennially popular haunt for backpackers and overlanders, the laidback Menata is a decent option. Good meals are available upon request or you can use the kitchen.
Maison D'hôtes La Bienvenue
Although it's on the main drag, this auberge is surprisingly peaceful and there's a pleasant leafy garden at the front, ideal for breakfast – the front of the hotel has been converted into the great (and fuschia-pink) Bla Bla Thé cafe...
Auberge Du Sahara
Well-signed on the road to Nouâdhibou. Dorms and rooms are plain, but functional, and shared bathrooms are kept in good nick. Other pluses are the outdoor areas, a kitchen for guests' use and a rooftop terrace.
Forget the blinding orange and yellow facade of this former Novotel; the interior shows money and a classy eye bonded with impeccable service. From swish rooms to free wi-fi, a good restaurant and a pool, this is by some degree Mauritania's best hotel.
Sure, the well-run Halima doesn't claim the glitz of its top-end competitors but for the price it's a good bet in this bracket, with well-organised rooms, good facilities and a tough-to-beat location. Accepts credit cards.
Top of the hotel spectrum as far as Nouâdhibou goes, the Sahel is a solidly comfortable business-class option.
Hôtel Al Jezira
Nouâdhibou isn't overrun with top-class accommodation, but this midrange hotel slightly north of the centre just about works out. Rates are slightly high for what's on offer, but the rooms are fair, and occasionally border on the comfy.
L'eden De Chinguetti
This impressive auberge is a great place to stay. It's neat, well tended and embellished with well-chosen knick-knacks and a nice garden. The English-speaking owner is a mine of information...
Atâr's fanciest option, with two-dozen tikit-style rooms, all with air-con and fridge. Good facilities mainly aimed at tour groups.
Cheap but welcoming overlanders' option on the main road south from Atâr.
Simple, bright green guesthouse with lots of rooms and plenty of lounging space (the more expensive have air-con). Meals on request, and are even prepared for free if you buy your own ingredients.
Auberge Des Caravanes
With its eye-catching, traditional architecture, it's hard to miss this place right in the centre of town. Rooms are pretty simple, and it can feel a bit impersonal, but it's adequate for the price.
Auberge Du Bonheur
Those wanting a reliable base could do worse than this welcoming outfit, a five-minute stroll from the centre. It's nicely turned out, with simple but decent rooms, a large tent in the courtyard and everything kept scrubbed pretty clean.
Unsophisticated (mattresses under palm-frond shelters) but welcoming. If there’s a group, the host can organise a méchoui (nomads') feast.
Camping Baie Du Lévrier
Also known as Chez Ali, this auberge-style place has a good location. Rooms are a bit cell-like, and bathroom facilities are shared, but there is a tent to relax in and cooking facilities.
Camping Chez Abba
A good overlanders' haunt, with plenty of space to park and pitch a tent, and a few decent rooms with their own bathrooms and hot water. Recommended.
