“All in one, no hassle shopping”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013 via mobile

Everything you need all under one roof..most speak English and French. The best thing is that everything is a set price so no haggling! Gives you a great idea of what you SHOULD pay elsewhere so you can haggle with confidence - although for this I think they do charge a little on top but hey :p They are very freindly and no pushy sales so very relaxed and so much to see there from art to leathers and souvenier shops

“So different to shopping elsewhere in Marrakech!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

After touring the souks for a few days, you may well be very fed up with the constant hassling from shop owners and random locals trying to get you to go and see the tannery. The Ensemble Artisanal is much more relaxed, almost peaceful by comparison, with little of the pestering you get elsewhere.

It's not a big place, but there's a good selection of shops to look around and prices are mostly clearly displayed.

There's a small cafe in the courtyard which has decent quality snacks (paninis etc...) at reasonable prices.

“Hassle free shopping ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013 via mobile

Definitely worth a visit if you can't /don't want to be hassled to death at the souks. Got everything I wanted and even if the prices were a little higher, the quality appears much better.

“Establishes the price to beat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

This fixed-price outlet gives you an idea of the prices the traders in the souk really have in mind when they are asking three times as much. Come here first to find out how much things really cost. If you don't like to haggle then go no further.

“Go for a look”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

Check out the goods on offer here and prices before you head into the souks. This way you know what prices to expect elsewhere (minus about 1/3 for a bargain) and can haggle with confidence. I found the quality here quite good but was a little disappointed that the whole place was relatively small. I would come here if I wanted a quick purchase and didn't want the hassle of bargaining in the souks. I personally prefer the atmosphere in the souks and haggling, butif you're not used to it it can be quite daunting.
