Much like most medinas, perhaps not quite as pushy as the medina in Marrakech. The usual touts pretending to remember you from the hotel and letting you know that there's a Berber exhibit for one day only. Fool me once shame on you, fool me...More

It was a poor market in a poor city. The stalls reflected were not exciting and although it is not large we had to ask for directions to get out.

My advice would be don't worry about going here it's what it says on the town plan, old medina. You will get approached frequently and asked to look in my shop, all part of middle Eastern and North African culture. But the old medina is...More

As a Chinese myself, I laughed hard when I saw handcrafts and souvenirs there are actually made in China... Don't waste time there, Fes and Marrakesh have much better medinas.

If you are spending a few days in Casablanca you could go to the Old Medina. It is not nearly as impressive as in Marrakech and unfortunately you have to beware of pickpocketing...So stay vigilant and do not create any opportunities

Both from outside and inside, this is just another medina. Compared to the other more interesting medinas of Morocco, you can safely skip this.

Since we were staying at a close by hotel, we thought we would visit this Medina. After all, this is Casablanca, and "it must have an impressive Medina." BUT NOT SO! Compared to Fes and Marrakech Medinas, it is small time (teeny time). There are...More

After visiting the old Medina in Tangier, Rabat, Fez, Marrakech, Essaouria, the Casablanca Medina just cannot stand up to the other ones in terms of size, cleanliness, and shopping. It was a short walk from our hotel but we left after 10 minutes.

We visited the Old Medina of Casablanca but I was disappointed. It was more like an old flea market. Our guide didn't even want to take us there because it is dirty. For anyone with mobility issues, this is a difficult place because of steps...More

Shop around and bargain to get the best price. I would only use cash in the Medina. If the shop doesn't ship and if you want to be sure the slippers are mailed, you can always mail them yourself. Your hotel can help you... More
