Local hammam with separate men and women entrances

Hi,

My husband and I are going to Marrakech and want to get the true experience of a hammam by going to a public one. The problem is that it seems many have different hours for men and women so therefore we couldn't go together.

I understand there are some with separate entrances for men and women so that we can go at the same time. Does anyone know where these are located in the medina? Thanks!

Hi,

There are many but to start you off there is one just at Bab Doukkala and another at the junction of Rue de Mouassine and Rue Dar el Bacha.

Hi,

Thanks for your reply! I read that the Bab Doukkala one has women from noon to 7 and men after 8 so it seemed that it didn't have separate entrances..unless they changed it of course! I'll look at the Rue de Mouassine one =)

If you choose the one at the junction of Rue de Mouassine and Rue Dar el Bacha then, depending where you are staying, ask your petit taxi driver for Dar el Bacha itself (the Pasha's palace). The hammam is about 300 meters in a straight line from that drop off point. You will pass the centre de sante on your right. Or, if approaching from Djemma al Fna, it is a five minute walk down Rue de Mouassine from Bab el Ftouh, turning right at the end of this street. There are at least two public hammams at Bab Doukkala.

Hi,

The one beside the Grand Mosquee Bab Doukkala has different times for men and women whereas the one beside the Gate Bab Doukkala has seperate hammams where you can both visit at the same time.
