Gueliz is what it is. The modern (ish) centre of Marrakech. There are the ubiquitous Western shops including McDonalds, but quite frankly there are better city centres in Europe and Gueliz offers very little. Some good restaurants including Al Fassia and the Italian Catanzano..one of the more cheaper places that has a licence to serve alcohol. The traffic is crazy especially around Place 16 de Novembre and around Mohammed V and VI. It does give some respite from the hustle and bustle of the Medina, but it replaces it with traffic, noise and pollution. No need to spend more than a morning here at most and get a taxi.
