“An exotic spot!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

We stayed in the heart of the medina while in Marrakech and felt that it really added to our enjoyment of our holiday. We were able more clearly, and on a daily basis, how people go about their daily lives. I would recommend staying in the medina rather than in a nice modern hotel in the new town.

Exciting but one could get lost but there are many to help you find your way at a cost!!! Lots of colourful shops and some wonder restaurant serving delicious tagines.

“Twists and turns but great fun.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Easy to get lost in but someone will set you on the right track. The square is worth seeing during the day and lit up at night with food stalls in their hundreds. Snail soup to kebabs and salads available in different stalls.

For shopping visit 144 in the medina. A veritable Aladins cave of household furnishings, furniture and objects d'arts.

“Absolute Madhouse”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

Something no to be missed but completely crazy. Traffic goes in all directions. The noise has to be experienced.

“Vibrant Colour and Sound”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

Plan to do a lot of walking to get the most out of a visit to the Medina. Its a facinating place with lots to see. The stalls are full of colourful and interesting articles and the salemen are less aggressive than in Turkey or Egypt. Be sure to haggle as the first offer is likely to be more than 3-4 times what you can get it for.
