This place was nice. King was in town so the area was under tight control due to proximity to his Casablanca palace. This place is worth a walk through if you have time but not a "must see" destination in Casablance especially if you have seen the Fez or Marakech Medinas. Place is clean and pretty but has a modern... More

Compared to Marrakech, this Medina is a bit quiet. Easy to roam around and local are so friendly. Unfortunately, they speak French and Arabic more than English. Hard to communicate.

Lots to see here. Avoid where the cruise ship types unload. That's where the crowds are, the drunk arrogant passengers, and all the hustlers trying to make money from the passengers. Once you get away from all that, it's rather enjoyable and I highly recommend.

This is a very large Medina. I didn't know what a Medina was until it was explained that a Medina needs to consist of Riads, Mosque, Bakery, Hamam and Souk. So what you are walking around is a collection of all of that. Best you sit and watch the locals in action to get the vibe.

For very little money, you can have a nice chicken dinner in the medina. Then if you get here in the morning walk a little further and you have a chance to eat some of the best pastries ever from some of the pastry stores.. wonderful artisan style pastries. I love the chicken dinners they have close to the kenzi... More

Lots of small shops, big crowds at night. Fun to walk through and people watch. The old souqs are more fun to shop at.

We left the place after 15 minutes because they can't leave you alone. Try to get you in to the shops

Something in between an old medina and a newish shopping area. We spent a couple of hours, and although we found it less vulgar than the "old" Medina in Casablanca, the traders were still of the same obnoxious stock.
