“Escape from Jemaa el Fna and feel batter here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

I have been feeling bad in Jemaa el Fna because of too much going on and terrible smell so i escape to Gueliz! There are not much to see here but you can walk on the street and feel like nobody talks with you for some hours and not bad smell as much as the big square of Jemaa el Fna! You can visit some europen style shops.

“The new heart of the city,”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013 via mobile

Ok not much to see but it has all the westerners want, shopping restaurants and in the hearth of the city.. Be warned parking is almost impossible and at night get really busy with traffic and shoppers. Its more of a shopping area than sightseeing but plenty of souvenir shops in the area

“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.
