We've just returned from the Sofitel in Marrakech. The only way to get from the airport is by taxi. There are two types, the mercedes, large ones and the small ones (they're all kind of beige coloured) - and the small ones are cheaper. You will need to get some local currency (Dirham) when you arrive at the airport, but from what we read the rate is the same everywhere, as set by the Morrocan bank. It's pretty simple. Then go outside and get a taxi - there will be plenty and they're right outside the door. It then depends on how good you are at haggling. We agreed a rate of 100 diram for the journey in a large taxi. That was about £6.60. We think now that it was quite a high rate, as the journey was only about 10 minutes to the hotel. So, if you can get less than that the real rate would probably be more like 60 dirham. Don't pay more than 100. They won't walk away, you just need to stick to your guns. The chances are that if you agreed 100 they would be very pleased.

The hotel is great. Watch out for people selling you things when you're in the Medina (old city) - you will be led places that you weren't intending to go, so best to be quite firm if you don't want something. I'm sure they're used to it.

I am planning on going to Marrakech very soon too...my findings are that the best way to travel from the airport to the city is via taxi. This will cost you about 100 Dh (£6 - £7).

out of interest which dates are you looking at flying? and is it from Gatwick?

Hi Nick, just returned from Marrakech and had two wonderful meals in the Sofitel. Pricey but great food and even better service.

Take a cab from the airport - try to agree a price in advance as they won't use the meter - it's only about 10 minutes to the centre / your hotel. Best, Eamon.

I think 100 dh for a taxi from the airport to the town sounds very expensive if it really is only 10 minutes. I've booked a Riad about an hour south of Marrakech and the Landlord has said it will only cost 200 dh and that we shouldn't pay any more than this - that's for a one hour journey!

Yes, airport taxis are much more expensive than those found inside the town. Difficult if not impossible to get around this price hike for airport taxis. You'll pay about 20d for an equivalent distance in a petis taxi in town (although they'll often try to ask for more). Airport taxis reflect the market value, as well as charges for cars to get out of airport. But please let us know if you find a way to beat the market prices equivalent to town. I'll be surprised but happy to hear if you do...
