“McDonalds in Marakesh”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

Went to the McDonalds in the new part of marakesh (sept 2013), the taxi driver tried to put us off saying it was terrible, we took it this was a ploy to take us to a 'cousins resturant'. However after ordering our food, we found the taxi driver was telling the truth, the service was appalling, the food was disgusting, fries that resemble large match sticks, chicken royale was so dry you had to take a mouthful of water with each bite, the 1/4 pounder I had, saw me spend the evening sitting on the WC. We tried to complain, but could not be understood as we do not speak French, and the assistants in there were plain ignorant and rude. We ended up giving the food to a couple of children begging outside. This has to be the worst McDonalds I have ever been to, and I certainly would not recommend it.

“Train travel is easy in Morocco!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

We came to the station a few days ahead of our planned trip to Tangier to be sure we could get tickets for the sleeper cars, which was an excellent bargain, by the way, approx. $35 each for the 11 hour overnight trip. The station is new, there are a few shops, including an ice cream café and good ole' McDonalds if you overspend in the souks and need a quick cheap meal! The ticket officers were very helpful and the station was immaculate.

Despite the condition of some of the trains in Morocco, this, and other stations are very good and quite modern.

“A huge train station”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

It's a huge train station. The tall building with very high ceiling is certainly much bigger than Casa Voyageurs in Casablanca. There were not too many people and you felt that it's very spacious. There were Mcdonalds etc. inside the train station. It seems modern and certainly better than the station of Casa Voyageurs.

“The beautiful Gare Routiere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

Whether arriving or departing Marrakech by train, the Gare Routiere is a beautiful building in which to do this. The huge glass front ornamented in a modern version of tradition patterns allows an unobstructed view; Slender fluted colomns soar to the ceiling; Decorative polished tilework gleams on the floor. Situated within the Gare are several fast food outlets as well as a pattisiere, a pizza cafe & restaurant on the upper level and Luigi’s, an excellent Italian restaurant. On the ground floor level is an Information Centre, a Post Office, a Phone outlet and a shop selling drinks, snacks, magazines & newspapers.

If you are continuing your travels, the SupraTours Bus Depot is part of the station complex.
