Distance between the main square and Gueliz

How far is Gueliz from Djemaa el Fna? I can't decide if I want to book a hotel in the Medina or Gueliz.

Gueliz starts right outside the Medina walls and is around 15/20 minute walk from Jema El Fna - the main centre of Gueliz is probably another 10 minutes further.

Or a 5/10 min taxi ride.

Not from the middle of the medina! Depends on where you are considering staying mayday2073. Petit taxi ranks are scattered around the rampart walls as access to the medina itself can be very restrictive for vehicular traffic. There is no centre to Gueliz as such, unlike the medina where Djemma al Fna is decidedly at the heart of the old town.

Hi Mayday I was exactly the same and could not make my mind up, so have decided to stay 4 nights at Hotel Caspien in Gueliz then Riad Ajebel near the Medina for 3 nights, in April. Both areas quite different by the sounds of things. Gueliz seems to have more bars and restaurants, clubs if your into that and some amazing roof top bars.

There are several terrace bars in the far more interesting locations in the medina.

Thanks guys for all the advice. I think I might have to split my reservations up a little. It all seems so exciting.
