“Pleasant, hassle free shopping”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

Whether the ensemble is for you will depend on what you want. If you crave vibrant madness, variety and the challenge of bargaining, then go to the Souks where you will find that in spades. If, like me, you prefer to browse in peace, and are not too keen on shopping or after a bargain, then the Ensemble has sufficient variety and is a much more peaceful and relaxed environment. The small, tranquil cafe is an added bonus!

“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.
