“European side of Marrakech”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

Best place for restrauntes and bars and a good base to explore the rest of the city. I personally found the old town quite intimidating, whereas guilez was more holiday like, with nice ice cream shops and good food. It costs like 20dh in taxi from guilez to old town, pay no more.

“No sights, but best area for bars and restaurants”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Apart from a few contemporary art galleries, there is nothing much for tourists to see in this area.
However it is the best part of Marrakech to head to for restaurants, especially if you are looking for a change from the standard tagine and grilled meats. Many good French and Italian restaurants plus chinese, thai and lebanese cuisine can also be found.

“Nothing special :-/ ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013 via mobile

Gueliz is the area in new modern city of Marrakech. Nothing special in this square (international brands that you can find almost everywhere in big cities) but near to nice restaurants and coffee bars.

“Modern Marrakech”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

Whereas the Medina is traditional Marakech, Gueliz is more modern and French.

Its main thoroughfare, Avenue Mohammed V, runs all the way down to the Koutoubia, and it's on and around this Orange tree lined boulevard that you'll find the city's upmarket shops, restaurants and pavement cafés.

The main post office buildings is based here directly opposite a shopping complex and you will find KFC and McDonalds.
